Witchy Side Step

Hello, I am back with another card I made for Art Impressions Fancy Folds Challenge.  This time I maded a side step card.
I used Witch Wanda set for this card.  Isn't she great!  I made the broom with a trig from my backyard and some raffia and twine.  I have seen it on a card somewhere and knew I had to make one for Wanda.  Here is a side view.

Thank you for stopping by.

Weekend Warrior

Hello,

Today I have a card I made for my DH for his birthday.   The front of the card is fairly simple.
On the inside I made it a pop up card.
It is a little hard to see in this photo, but that is a black workbench just like my hubby's complete with doors and a stainless steel top. I created the peg board by punch holes is a piece of kraft card stock and hung the tools with brads.  Here is a side shot.

I used Weekend Warrior from Art Impressions.  I am entering this into their current challenge #146 Fancy Folds.  My Hubby loved the card.

Thank you for stopping by.

Trimmed with Love

Ok after hardly posting any cards for the last month or so I am trying to making up for it tonight.  Here is my last card for the Power Poppy challenges.  This last challenge is an inspiration challenge, Let's Get Personal.  These are my favorite types of challenges.  You could use something from around your home or the photo below for your inspiration.  I went with the photo and made a Christmas card.  I was inspired by the ornaments on the tree.
Here is my card
Thank you for stopping by.

I Think You're So Amzaing

Post number 3!
This one is for Power Poppy's third challenge Hope, Think Pink!  For this challenge you need to do one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on SplitCoast Stampers.  I picked Stripping down, which is to use some of those strips of paper we all have left over from our projects.
For my card I used Azalea again from Power Poppy.
Thank you for stopping by.

You are Always on my Mind

Hello,

Power Poppy has some great challenges from World Card Making Day.  Well I didn;t get to stamp on Saturday, but I made up for it since.  This is the first of four post showing the cards I made for their challenges.

First up is challenge #1 Woot Woot For Tuts! This challenge is to create a card or project using one of the fabulous tutorials called Inspire Me Mondays.  I picked Mosaic Stamping.  I don't have a die like Dina used so I had to make mine old school.  I used my only Power Poppy set Azalea.
Thank you for stopping by.

Holiday Sparkle!

Hello,  I have a card I made for Art Impressions latest challenge Holiday Sparkle.  Here is my card.
I used #4350 Ugly Sweater Set from Art Impressions.  I so love the humor of this.  I colored her with copics and added a little glitter to her sweater and the poinsettia, which I couldn't get to show in the photo.  I also added some glitter tape.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!!!

Boo

 Hello,

Today I have a card I made for Art Impressions current challenge Purple, Orange and Black.  I don't own any Art Impressions Halloween stamps yet so I improvised.

I used Little Sprout to create this Halloween themed card.  The boo is a sticker and I added a few snaps to accent the card. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Designer's Choice Challenge with Repeat Impressions

Hello, it is time for another Designer's Choice Challenge.  This week Melissa's challenge it Celebrate Birthdays.  Great challenge Melissa. 
I used #9706 Flowers and #1113 Happy Birthday for my card.  

Before I send you over to The House That Stamps Built I have a little announcement.  It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to step down as a Rock Star for Repeat Impressions.  Wendy is wonderful to work with and I hope to return someday.  At this time in my life I find myself struggling with creativity and the time to create.  It took many months for me to come to this point as I love being with Repeat Impressions so much.  The entire team is wonderful, talented and so kind.   I would like to thank Wendy for her support, belief in me as a stamper and for being the best stamp owner.  To my fellow Rock Stars I will miss you and value your friendship more than you know.  I will still be making cards and posting here on my blog, but am going to go with my mood and create when I want or can and the rest of the time I plan on spending with my family.  That is when I am not working every daylight hour.  Finally thank you to all of my cherished readers, you are the reason I love card making so much.  I find great joy in sharing with you the cards I make.  You lovely comments mean so much!  Oh and you are going to LOVE my replacement!  She is a extremly talented crafter and a wonderful lady.  Wendy will be announcing her soon.  Okay back to our regular scheduled programing, LOL.

Now head over to The House That Stamps Built and get all the details of the challenge.  I hope you can join us in this challenge for a chance to win some fabulous stamps.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the RI Rock Stars.

You're How Old?

Hello, today I have a card I made for Art Impressions challenge "Show off your Sentiment". 
I used How Old. 
I wanted to come up with two different cards using the same set and almost the same color scheme.  This one is my favorite of the two. 


Thank you for stopping by.

How Old? Part 2

My second card for Art Impressions "Show off your Sentiment" Challenge.  For this card I really went out of my comfort zone and came up with this.

I cut the open circles which left the solid circles and so I played around with the layout until I had something I thought would work. I am not sure how I feel about this card.  At least I tried something new.

Thank you for stopping by.
