Owl be There!

Happy Thursday!
Today I am playing with some Sweet 'n Sassy stamps to make this cute shaker card for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive. 
Are you playing along with us? If not, you're missing out on the chance to lift the spirits of women battling breast cancer at MD Anderson, and also on prizes from your favorite crafty companies. So what are you waiting for? Go stamp something pretty!

To make my card I used three different sets. For the tree I used the Tree Background stamped in Ground Expresso distress ink. The leaves are from the Falling Leaves set stamped in Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, and Fossilized Amber distress inks,since these inks react with water, I took a damp water brush and lightly went over the leaves to bring them together.  The cute little owl and greeting are from set Owl Be There. I wanted to make the owl a shaker, and using the Owl Die made it super easy.

CAS(E) This Sketch #143

Oh happy day!
 I went and picked up my husband for a long weekend, so i have posts scheduled, lets hope they don't do like this one did and go to a draft stage
For my card share today, I am playing with some Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to make a card for the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

Across the top, I used the Leaf Silhouettes stamped with Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade distress inks. I love these three colors together. The thanks is from the Words of Life Collection 1 , I embossed it in gold and added gold to the sides to compliment the greeting.

Triple Hearts for HYCCT

Happy Tuesday!
For todays card share, I am playing with some CAS-ual Fridays goodies, for another Hope You Can Cling To challenge at Splitcoaststampers, to use three hearts on your card and incorporate red. I just chose my hearts to be red. 
To make my card I started with an A2 sized base and cut my panel down a 1/4 of an inch, I deserted the edges and used a stencil from Stampin Up to make the background, for the texture I spritzed it with some irRESISTible gold texture spray (a new favorite)and then finished it off using the Heart Board Fri-Die  Casual Fridays. The greeting is also from CAS-ual Fridays from the set Wallflower

I am also entering this one in the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays of 
Tic Tac Toeing
I chose to go diagonal with stenciling, spritzing, and distressing

My card share today is for the Tic Tac Toe challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and uses several supplies from different companies.
For the challenge I opted to go straight down the right side with stenciling, die cutting, and embossing. I started with the Lace stencil from Tim Holtz and some real Red ink from Stampin Up. The Happy die cut is from Wplus9 along with the word birthday which I embossed in black. I finished the card by stamping a flower from the Loving Thoughts set, embossed in white on real Red cardstock. I cut it down a little to fit my banner.

I finally decided to join Stamp Nation and this is also for a challenge over there as well

Happy Late Sunday!
Well today was an unproductive day, I have a couple showing on the house so I was homeless most of the afternoon and didn't get a chance to play until later tonight after I got laundry done. 
I made this card for The Hope You Can Cling To challenges and used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

World Cardmaking Day

Well I didn't get to make a bunch of cards today, had other things to do but here is one I made today for a challenge at Blitsy and  the Hope You Can Cling to challenges. Tomorrow will be a busy day as well, we have two showings on the house and then maybe I can come back and get some cards made for all the challenges that haven't expired. 
Happy World Cardmaking Day to all my crafty peeps


It's day 3 for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over at Splitcoaststampers and the challenge is I Am A Warrior. To make my card I used an stamps from My Favorite things that's a couple years old so it's probably retired but I like it so I kept it around. I made my background ombre' so I could enter it in the Simon Says Monday challenge.
