Finishing Strong

Hi everyone!  Today I'm participating in the Operation Write Home Finishing Strong Bloghop.  Operation Write Home, a charity that has supported heroes with handmade cards since 2007, will be closing later this year.  All cards need to be sent in by August 1st, so I'm helping get the word out!

My card was inspired by sketch #159:
I'm really into watercoloring lately so I watercolored the balloon with Fired Brick and Faded Jeans distress inks, I added red white and blue twine and splattered the inks on the main panel.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Wedding

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge.  This weeks cue card is wedding.  It was the perfect excuse to pull out my stamps from my Congratulations set.  I think this sentiment would also be great for an anniversary or love card!  I cut 3 strips of cardstock, the sentiment panel is up on pop dots and I added a few shiny sequins to finish the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Welcome


Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Paper Smooches challenge, this week's challenge is:

Since last week I knew I wanted to use my Welcome Word Die and Welcome Wagon stamp set to make my card, It has the perfect sentiments for a new team member that will be joining us this week!  I smushed Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade inks on a sheet of acetate onto my watercolor paper.  I then flicked Vintage Photo ink.  The sentiment was embossed with Zing Chestnut embossing powder and I cut out the welcome 3 times for dimention.  Finally I added silver sequins to finish the card.  
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
