PCC week 130

Hi Everyone!

I love this week's inspiration from the PaperCrafters Corner Magazine Monday challenge

You would think with all that color I would have a very colorful card. 

I was drawn to the black and white around her eyes. The birds are a Spellbinders Sapphire die. The stamp is Unity.

Are You Going To Play This Week??

PCC week 129

Hi everyone!

Are you getting snow where you are? We're getting anywhere from ...2 TO 3 inches north...4 TO 7 inches south in my county. So who knows?
So I'll be CRAFTING!

This week's PaperCrafters Corner challenge is so colorful!
The internet/computer is being temperamental today so here's the link:

And here's my card

I chose the watercolor flowers as my inspiration. I used Unity stamps, Kuretake watercolors, and vellum.

Have a great day!

Hi Everyone!

This week I finally decided to sort through my cardstock scraps. I had them in large ziplock bags by color and the were getting all bent up. I went to Dollar Tree to find something, anything to store my scraps. I ended up getting medium sized manila envelopes. Not the best solution but I'm planning on put lots of the scraps to use. I should throw out a lot of them but I just can't! I mean, I just got the Spellbinders Sapphire dies and they're small. :)

So......on to a few cards I made with the scraps.

I started my sort with the red/pink scraps. To make this card I glued the strips into a piece of copy paper and embossed it. I used Unity stamps, Spectrum Noir markers, Darice and Spellbinders Sapphire dies to complete the card. I'm entering this in the Unity monthly challenge to use red and pink. Also the Spectrum Noir monthly challenge.

This woven card started out like this:

I taped strips of white card stock to a piece of junk mail. Using the mini circle Gelli plate and Dylusions paints I made my print. The Spellbinders sentiment finished off the card.
I'm entering this in Carolyn Dube's challenge to use something that would have been thrown away. 

This last card was started a long time ago. At least the embossing. I wanted to try something different but I didn't know what. I pulled out some gloss varnish and started painting the raised area just to see what it would look like. I liked it! Once it dried I added the Spellbinders and gems.

PCC #128

Hi Everyone!

This is the first PaperCrafters Corner challenge of 2016!

This image is adorable. For my card I used the bright colors and party theme. And what better party than a Birthday party?

Every birthday party needs banners and balloons!

Happy 2016

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's!
Mine was quiet and happy. :)

Since Santa brought me new Spectrum Noirs I decided to make a card. 

I used a Unity stamp, Spectrum Noir markers, and a label using my label maker. I messed up my stamping and the label covered it perfectly. I really had a hard time finding the label maker. The box it was in could have used a LABEL! :)

Have a great week!
