9/24/2021 - TGIF Challenge & Just Add Ink - Thank You

Happy Friday – Today’s card is using Just Add Ink (Sketch) and TGIF Challenge (Inspiration). I used the Gather Together (one last time before I sell it) and coordinating dies for the pumpkin. I don’t have Stampin’ Blends for this color so I used the Stampin’ Markers to color it in. I would say most of the items I used are all retired but I am happy to be able to use up some of the items. Thank you for stopping by.

9/22/2021 - Shaded Summer Card - Friendship

Today’s card is using 3 challenges – TGIF (SAB), Global Design Project (sketch) & CAS Challenge (colours). I finally got my Adhesive Sheet so it’s perfect to use it on the Shaded Summer Dies since the images are really intricate. The frame of the sentiment is from a different die cut set and I wanted to see if using Misty Moonlight for the flower is better than Coastal Cabana. I hope you enjoyed this quick card I am sharing today and Happy Hump Day!

Today’s card is using 2 challenges – CASEing Tuesday (sketch) & Hand Stamped Sentiment (Inspiration).

I really enjoyed making this card and glad that my Mojo is back. Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Monday! Today’s card is using 3 challenges listed below. I went with Paper Craft Crew for the sketch and then the Leaf for Code Word and Clean and Simple Fall Fun with The Paper Player.

9/14/2021 - Global Design Project / CASE-ing Tuesday - Thanks

Today’s card is using 2 challenges – FB CASEing Tuesday & Global Design Project Color Challenge. I used the Pattern Party but the black and white side of DSP for this and color in some of the leaves with Stampin’ Markers – 3rd color is Cinnamon Cider. I then used Basic Black and Cinnamon C Cardstock for the silhouette image. I really liked how this turned out since I wasn’t sure the color would work. I think it’s perfect for a elegant thank you card. Thank you for stopping by.

9/13/2021 - Make My Moday #157 Autumn/Fall Theme Card - Just For You

Welcome back to another week of challenge here at Make My Monday and this week we are making Fall/Autumn theme card. I kept the card very clean and simple again but just showcasing the Designer Series Paper and layer it on top of Early Espresso cardstock. A trick I wanted to share is that I die cut the tree image with the layering piece since a DSP is going on top of it and you can’t really see it, it’s a great way to save some paper! Then I finished the card with a sentiment and a ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and be sure to check out DT members’ creation!

9/9/2021 - Try Stampin' On Tuesday / CASEing the Catty Sunday - Love You, Friend

Sunny day here in Chicagoland. Today’s card is using FB – CASEing the Catty Sunday & Try Stampin’ On Tuesday. I paid up the new dies from Sale-A-Bration with the Pattern DSP for this wonderful card that you can send to a friend. For the flowers, it would be better if you die cut the details one on the adhesive sheets and I have one coming on my next order so it’s easier to put together. I hope you enjoyed this quick card I am sharing today!

Happy Wednesday! Today’s card is using CAS Colours & Sketches and Tuesday Morning Sketch. 3 of these colors are the 2021-2023 In-Colors so I am happy to put them to good use.

9/3/2021 - Paper Craft Crew / Freshly Made Sketch - Deliverying Cheers

Happy Friday! Today’s card is using Freshly Made Sketch and Paper Craft Crew. I used the Delivering Cheers from the Holiday catalog and color in with Stampin’ Blends. Sadly I don’t have a lot of colors to choose from so a little limited there. I put the stamped image on a layer of Champagne Foil Sheet and it’s hard to see because I also added some Wink A Stella on the wrapping ribbons and her shoes. I hope you enjoy this card I am sharing today!
