Uniquely You

I have had this retired stamp set for as long as I have been a consultant with Close to My Heart and have not used this part of the set.  It just called out to me with these happy colors! This is my Color Dare #190 card.  I have used Ruby, Gypsy, Honey and Pear inks only.  The top flower was heat embossed in white and the first three colors were applied with sponge daubers. The sentiment was also heat embossed in white and clear Wink of Stella was added to the solid colors and the sentiment.

Supplies used:

Cardstock: Ruby, Gypsy Honey and White Daisy
Inks: Pear, Versa Mark with White heat embossing powder
Stamp set: A Flowering Bunch, SOTM S1306
Cricut Cartridge: Artiste

I was the Sapphire winner for this card!  Exciting!!!

Young At Heart

Are you young at heart?  Doesn't matter your age you know!!!

I got out some stamps from the last Stamp of Approval Young At Heart collection by Catherine Pooler and created these cards.  I have a lot of birthdays coming up and everyone always needs birthday cards.  That was the main reason I bought the set!  It was full of goodies and ready to create great projects as well as opportunity learn some new tricks!  There were some great, fun stamp sets, die cuts and a masking sheet.  Also a glitter pen.  So much fun to pay with.  All this was in the box!!

These are a few of the cards I have created.  

Her website is full of ideas and so is my Pinterest site!  Check them out, especially all of you who are young at heart!  Don't forget to vote too!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge of Four

I have never thought of trying to see how many different combinations of four things I could get on a card but it was FUN!  This challenge is from the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for the fourth month, April! Can you find four things that I used four of?

I hope you saw four stars, four pictures, four words and fours colors!  Now see what you can create using four of something!  For more ideas go to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog!

I used the following stamp sets:
Animal Greetings D1679, an Operation Smile set

Life in Pictures S1604, Stamp of the Month

Green! Green! Green!

This is the season where everything is coming up green!  Leaves, grass, flowers pushing through the ground and cards!  The weather is cold and very windy today and there were snow flakes flying through the air but not enough to hide the GREEN!  I want the 70 F weather from two days ago...Lol.

This weeks Color Dare #187 challenge is to create a card using only shades of green and White Daisy.  I combined that with the Stamp Of the Month for April.  I roughed up the edged with a Edge Distresser tool for added interest and to bring out the white core of the paper.

I added some various shades of  Enamel & Glitter Duos Green Triangles for some added BLING!  I did some second generation stamping and used the lighter shades so that only one camera stuck out.  The little star shapes came from an older stamp set, CC1041 Hello, Life.

There were other stamp set I could have used for this but it was close and it worked for what I wanted...filler!

Take time to enjoy Life's Moments!
