My Sheri Pink & Pretty

The challenge this time around at My Sheri Crafts is "Pink & Pretty".  I love that theme!

I used some fantastic freebies I got with my latest issue of "Card Making and Paper Craft" magazine.  The stamp and embossing folder were both included.  I mounted the stamp on 2 Spellbinder's diecuts, cut out a "Hope" ribbon, added some gems and a bow and there it is!

It doesn't show up very well in the picture, but the ribbon is cut twice, once in silver foil cardstock and once in the pink.  The silver shows up in real life and ties in with the silver gems.

I hope you'll come on over and join us!

My First ATC!

Hello!  This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is "Anything Goes With A Twist" and the twist is "Artist Trading Cards"!  Our sponsor is the ever fabulous 

I've never made an ATC before, so I was kind of intimidated by this oh-so-simple simple concept of a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2 " tag!  But, I did it!
I colored this cute "Hello Kitty" digi from our sponsor, then grabbed up some scraps of paper on my desk and went to town!  I have 2 pieces of embossed paper, the lavender base is embossed with an Embossabilities music note folder and the border is one that came with my last "Card Making and Paper Craft" magazine.  Gotta love those freebies!!!

I used the red feather because that fancy phone reminded me of those old, delicate, fancy phones in the old black and white movies and when I thought of that I thought of the feather boa house robes the ladies wore and those high heeled house shoes with the feathery puffs on them.  Funny what triggers your memories!

Come on over and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team.  See you there!

Anything Goes at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!

It's time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week our theme is Anything Goes with the Twist - Anything Goes!  
We are sponsored once again by Bugaboo!

I made a simple oval card with Bugaboo's image "Bugaboo Brat Bugs" and paper scraps.  The scalloped oval is a Cricut Cut from "Elegant Edges".  
For the card base, I enlarged the base cut of the oval, duplicated and welded.  I've used Spectrum Noir markers for coloring and Paper Studio flowers with gems.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Please join us over at The Outlawz, where there is a new challenge everyday!

Picture/Color Inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown

Helo and welcome!  Today is TeamA's turn for the new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week we are sponsored by:


and we have a picture inspiration.  You can go by the image or the colors:


I used the sponsor's "The Big, The Bold and Comfort" stamp set for my card.

I really liked the look of the stamp set on the plastic, so I just inked up the whole thing for my background!  Then I used just the "Hope" stamp from the set.  A few Spellbinders diecuts, some ribbon and flowers and there you go!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Tic Tac Toe @ Mysheri Crafts!

This week at My Sheri Crafts we have a Tic Tac Toe board!  

I went with the line of brown, butterfly and ribbon.  But I also have metal embellishments and a bit of lace, so I got that row, too!

This sweet image is from Nicecrane.  I printed it in black on white paper, then antiqued it to make it more of a cream color.  I know it would have been easier to imprint it on cream paper, but I also computer colored the image in turquoise, green and purple on the same sheet.  The paper is from a pad of printed Kraft paper and the butterfly is a Cricut cut.  

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!

An Elephant Never Forgets!

It's time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week our theme is Anything Goes with the Twist - A Fall Theme!  
We are sponsored once again by Bugaboo!

I used one of their cute  Edward Pumpkins images to make a Thank You card:  

Inside is stamped with "Thanks Bunches".

These papers have been in my stash from the beginning of time, I think!  

This project is also a first for me---I used the pen in my Explore to write the font on the die cut all in one step!  Woohoo!  Another feature figured out!  LOL!  

Come on over to The Outlawz and join us!
