Cut it Up Challenge #304 ~ Send Me Flowers

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our next Cut it Up challenge is posted on the CIU blog.
Our theme for challenge #304 is SEND ME FLOWERS.  
Don't forget that you must follow the theme and include a die cut.

Here's my project using a stencil set from Pinkfresh Studio.


I heat embossed a Jaded Blossom sentiment onto velum and popped it up over the stenciled background mat which I cut out using a Jaded Blossom Scalloped Rectangle die.
All of the inks I used are also from Pinkfresh Studio.

I hope you'll play along with us.
The Top Cuts from our last challenge can be found in our blog post along with our Cut it Up Community Facebook page.

Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers ~ May Challenge #45

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have a new sketch challenge for the month of May on the BYSH Facebook page HERE.

You'll find the sketch at the bottom of this post.

First, here's my project using some older Authentique papers and a Whimsy Stamps die.


The sentiment is a Jaded Blossom stamp and all I added was a twine bow.

You'll find lots of inspiration on the Facebook page and also on the BYSH Blog.

Here's this month's sketch for your interpretation.

Cut it Up Challenge #303 ~ Add a Sentiment

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our next Cut it Up Challenge.

For this challenge we'd like you to Add A Sentiment to your project.
Don't forget to include a die cut as well.

Here's my card.


I've used a new Spellbinders Betterpress plate for this card.  This set also comes with a die and  a registration guide that goes on the platform so you can easily align and then stamp each part in a different color ink and still have it line up perfectly.  This is a new addition to Betterpress stamping and it really extends the possibilities.

I hope you'll play along with us for this next challenge.  Be sure to visit our Facebook community page when we feature the Top Cuts for each challenge.  You can find the community page HERE.

Outlawz Festive Friday Challenge ~ May Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's May so time for a new Outlawz Festive Friday Challenge.

As always, we have four themes for you to choose from:
Christmas (always a choice)
Mother's Day
Spring Flowers
Wrap it Up (ribbon or twine)

My card would be perfect for both Spring Flowers or Mother's Day.


I used Spellbinders Layered Daisies die set, a Scallop Oval from Jaded Blossom and gems from Pinkfresh Studio.  I die cut using Hammermill 100# cardstock and then ink blended the florals.

I hope you'll play along with our challenge.  Challenge rules and inspiration can be found on the blog (link above), and we'd love you to join our Facebook Fan page as well.

Thanks for dropping by :)

Pearly Sparkles May Challenge ~ Cats and Dogs

Hi Crafty Friends,
Wowzers!  It's May already.  Our weather in Northern California still can't decide whether or not it's spring or winter.  80 degrees today and Saturday, 60 degrees and rain.  Ugh!

We have a fun new challenge at Pearly Sparkles ~ Cats and Dogs.

Here's my project.

I used the Peek-a-Boo Window die from Whimsy stamps and an image from My Favorite Things Four Legged Friends stamp set.  I think this makes a cute shaker card.

I hope you'll play along with us this month.
Upload your project HERE.

Here's my project using my Glimmer Foiling system and a Betterpress plate (yes, you can foil using your Betterpress plates!!!)  By using an alcohol ink-compatible cardstock, I was able to use Copic markers after foiling the image.


You may enter as many projects as you'd like during the event; more chances for you to win and you'll be putting a dent in your holiday cardmaking - woohoo!!


So, what are you waiting for? 







Cut it Up Challenge #302 ~ Starts with a B

Hi Crafty Friends,

So glad you're visiting.  Today I'm sharing my project for Cut it Up's challenge 302 ~ Starts with a B

Here's my Butterfly project.


I have been participating in the PinkFresh Studio's Create and Connect cardmaking events.  During our last event, we were introduced to their amazing Washi tape designs.  In the Fluttering Butterflies product suite, there is a die that matches both the clear stamp set and the Washi tape!  All of the stems and butterflies are cut at once - LOVE IT!!
I also used the PF Daisy Chain coverplate for the background which I ink blended using PF inks.  The sentiment is from the PF Extra Special sentiments set and I added some PF glitter dots.

I hope you'll play along with us.  Just follow the link above.
