Calendar Based Valentine

I created this valentine for the challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlights. The challenge was to create a calendar based project. This is the first time that I have created a card with a calendar on it. The calendar itself is a stamp set from Hampton Art (post scrip calendar). Each number was stamped onto the calendar seperately. If you notice I stamped my 8's upside down. And didn't realize this until I was adding it to my card. Oops!! Well, I guess it's not too bad for the first time that I've used this stamp set. I colored the letters for the days of the week using a pink colored pencil. I also created the heart on the 14 using the same pencil. The image that I used is Sweet Tilda from Magnolia Stamps. I colored the image using both crayola and prisma colored pencils.

The sketch that I used is from Crafting Life's Pieces. The color pink that I used is called passionate. The base of my card is white backed in the passionate. I added a strip of the passionate down the right side and a strip across the bottom. The strip across the bottom is embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I punched a strip of white cardstock using a lace heart border punch and added it to the bottom of the embossed strip of passionate. I backed both the image and the calendar in passionate and then in white. I added a pale pink paper daisy to the bottom right corner of the image. I punched two leaves out of green using a rose leaf punch. I added a pink rhinestone to the flower and other areas of the card.

Love Is....

I made this card using this love is sentiment stamp. I'm not sure what company the stamp is from. The verse is...
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking
It is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I made this card as an anniversary card but it would also work as a wedding or valentine's day card. The base of my card is white. I embossed a smaller piece of cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (swirls) and backed it in black. I also backed the image in black. I added a piece of black velvet ribbon across the embossed piece just under the verse. I punched butterflies out of lavender cardstock and added one to the upper right corner of the verse and one to the left side of the ribbon. I added lavender rhinestones to the butterflies and to the bottom right corner of the card. I am entering this card into the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge ~ Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Good morning! Our challenge this week at 2 Sisters is to create a card/project using the theme:


GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN


Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs!!! Lindsay gave the DT two amazing images to play with from her new release. I just had to make a card with both of them. The first card I made features Hippie Chic. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. For the base of my card I used a pink cardstock from Bazzill Basics called passionate. I took a piece of bright green cardstock and embossed it using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). Then for the strip across the bottom of my card I stamped bright green and pink flowers to create my own patterned paper. I added a bright green ribbon to the left side of the patterned paper and then added a large dark pink paper daisy to the right side. I backed the image in passionate and then again in white and added it ontop of the green embossed cardstock and the large pink flower. I added a bright green paper daisy to the top left corner of the image and another to the bottom right corner ontop of the large pink daisy. The green daisies look yellow but they are actually green. I added a bright pink rhinestone to the center of each flower. I backed my birthday sentiment in bright green and added it to the card so it was partly on the image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Fresh Brewed: Photo Inspiration

For my second card I am showcasing the image GoGo Girl 2. I colored the image using crayola & prisma colored pencils. I used chestnut for the base of my card. I used an aqua stripe patterned paper across the bottom of the card and backed it in white cardstock. I added a light aqua ribbon across the striped paper. I backed the image in a cardstock from Coredinations called deep lagoon. I punched daisies out of the deep lagoon and added two to the ribbon on the left side of the image and one to the right side of the image and added a white pearl to the center of each one. I added three white pearls to the upper left corner. I knotted a piece of light aqua ribbon and added it to the upper right corner of the image. I backed the birthday sentiment in deep lagoon and added it on the left side of the image.

Let's Play Dress Up...

Good morning! It's a cold snowy day here in Maine. They're saying we could get around 14 inches today. My hubby and kids are home from school and there's no where to go so it's a perfect day to just sit around and be crafty. I made this birthday card using Scarlette Presents from Bugaboo Stamps. The sketch that I used is from Our Creative Corner. The challenge is to use the sketch and to play dress up with it. So I used the colors raspberry, black and turquoise. I added embossing to the black cardstock. I dressed it up with the flowers at the bottom left corner and the rhinestones at the top right corner. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.
