My card share today is another one from my class this past weekend and also for our team challenge #team15in15
To make this card I started with a top folding Crumb Cake note card and the Jar of Love set and the Everyday Jars Framelits by Stampin Up. 
I stamped the floral images in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry and cut them out with the dies. The leaves and stems are stamped in Pear Pizzaz, Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive. I stamped the stems in Old Olive directly on the note card to give it more dimension, the others were cut out with the dies. The Jar is stamped in Memento and the water in Pool Party. I used denimsionals to pop up the images and to finish the card I added some linen thread around the top of the jar.

Pocketful of Daisies and the Eclipse

So who is ready for the Eclipse? have you gotten your glasses? I tell ya it is going to be a crazy day today wherever you are. We are at 98% at my house so I will be staying home crafting and not getting out in the craziness. 

I wanted to share one of the cards from my Saturday night card class. This one uses three new sets from the new annual catalog.
To make my card I started with a top folding Crumb Cake note card and some of the paper from the Wood Textures paper stack. I love this paper stack it has so many pretty wood backgrounds. For the pocket I stamped the pocket from the Pocket Full of Sunshine set on a piece of Dapper Denim card stock and then stamped the Burlap Background also with Dapper Denim to give the pocket some texture. Next I stamped the large daisy from the set Daisy Delight in Smoky Slate twice nand punched them out with the Daisy Punch, the smaller daisies were also stamped in Smoky Slate and cut out with the scanNcut. To finish the card I added a greeting also by Stampin Up.

This one is for our team challenge #team15in15

Happy Sunday! 
It's time for another challenge at AAA Cards, our sponsor for this challenge is STAMPlorations with a $15 get certificate to the winner and two $5 given to two randomly drawn players and all players get a 10% off coupon. 

To make my card I started with a white top folding note card and a panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the rose image from the new Graceful Garden set by Stampin Up and then used post it notes to mask it off and placed the stencil over the masked image and sponged some Tempting Turquoise over it. I removed the mask and colored the image with Copic markers.
I added the sympathy greeting from the Rose Wonder set also by Stampin Up, because unfortunately I had to send this one off to a friend.

Live Simply

It's time for another encouragement challenge at Calling All Sistahs
Congratulations to the winner from last month. 
Our challenge is to use the inspiration photo below to create a card to send someone a word of encouragement as they go through a struggle. It doesn't have to be cancer it can be for someone who has lost someone, lost a job, or just needs a word of encouragement. The real challenge is will you mail it? I love to go to the mailbox and find happy mail instead of or with the bills, always makes my heart happy.
oh and 
There is a prize involved as well, a $25 voucher to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and if you use CAS-ual Fridays products and are the winner it will increase to $50

To me this photo is serene and simple and along with the colors that is where I drew the inspiration for my card.
To make my card I started with a Crumb Cake top folding note card and a bristol paper panel cut down with a stitched die. I stamped the image from the Dream Then Do set with Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I blended some Broken China & Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks over the image and spritzed with water. To finish the card I added some white enamel dots.

You Are Cherished

Up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today!
I'm a  little late with my post I was thinking I was to post tomorrow, anywho here's today's card featuring the Scribble Flowers and the All About You sets.

To make my card, I started with a top folding white note card and a piece ow watercolor paper cut down with a stitched die. I randomly stamped the floral images  from the Scribble Flowers set all over the watercolor paper using Versafine Black Onyx ink, next I just scribbled color over the images using Zig clean color real brush pens and then spritzed with water. After the panel dried I added randomly added some black dots with a fine tipped sharpie. 
For the greeting I stamped the word You from the All About You set using Versamark ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder so it would stand out against the background. I added the panel to a black mat and then to finish the card I stamped the rest of the greeting in Versamark ink on a black piece of card stock and heat set it with white embossing powder then used foam tape to give it dimension.

Calling All Sistahs August Reminder

It's the 17th of the month and time for the Calling All Sistahs reminder to check your girls. I have quite a few friends fighting this horrible disease at the present time, so please get your mammograms so you are not added to the count. 
As I have said before I lost my mom to breast cancer at a young age and I am a survivor myself so cancer hits home with me and I do not want any more of my friends to have to fight this horrible disease.

Cancer can be beaten if caught early so please do self exams and get your mammograms once a year if thats what the doctor suggests. You can also help find a cure by purchasing products from the Calling All Sistahs line where 50% of the profits go towards breast cancer research.

Now for my reminder card. 
I used the Hope Ribbon and the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die on my card. I started with a white top folding card base and some patterned paper. I cut strips of the patterned paper and placed them on a scrap piece of card stock and then cut it out with the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die. I also added some of that same patterned paper to the bottom of my card.
