The challenge at Elizabeth Mae's this week was to use hearts. I chose to use one of her digis and just color the hat (with a Promarker). The hearts are punched from DCWV glitter paper. (It's pretty flat so it would be really easy to mail.) The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Fashionable Friends set. The black and white paper is a scrap from my stash (I should know who it's from but don't remember).
This card is for the Birthday Sundaes challenge. This week there needed to be ribbon on the card. The image is from A Day for Daisies. I colored it with Promarkers. The ribbon is from the clearance section at my Walmart. The paper is all DCWV from a variety of stacks. The sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Coffee and Tea for You and Me stamp set. I used Stickles on the the frosting and a glitter pen on the flowers and around the cupcake holder. I ran the purple through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I used my pink ATG gun for the adhesive. I used a Viva Decor pearl pen for the flower centers.
I'm not doing my best work lately, don't know what's going on for sure. This card is for the Simply Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky. It was supposed to be fall related so I made this card that I will probably stick in the mail and send to my mom (she's in a nursing home) or a friend of hers (mine too) who is feeling her age lately. She's in her upper 80's so that can be a lot to feel some days (she would appreciate the play on words, promise!). The paper is random pieces I pulled out of my scrap pile. The round stamp is one I found at Big Lots. It's from Inkadinkadoo. I used Kristal's Fall-O-Ween set inside the circle. Her stamps are clear plus they are mix and match. I put the stamps inside the circle and figured out where they looked best, then put the acrylic block on top and they stayed in just the right position. I used a glitter pen that Mary from Cardz TV showed a few weeks ago. It's really cool. I went over the flowers and the capital letters for a little extra shine on a pretty muted card. The brad is from the Eyelet Outlet. There is a little hook on the bottom that you can string things through. The ribbon is some old stuff I had around the house. (Yarn is a bad 4-letter word to my daughter, I have so much). The circles were cut with the scalloped circles Nestabilities die. (hate it when I spell stuff and it just looks wrong:( ) We're having a rainy weekend, which is great for crafting! Hope everyone has a good one.
