Hope Soars

Hi everyone!  Today my card is for Jen's Hope Soars Hope You Can Cling To challenge on Splitcoast.  I used an old image that I love and thought was perfect for the challenge.  It is from Cornish Heritage Farms Flying Bald Eagle.  I colored the image, cut it out, glued the body down but used pop dots on the wings.  I added enamel dots to 2 corners and rounded the other 2 to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone!  Today's card is for Susie's Hope You Can Cling To challenge on SCS to create our own background.  My very favorite backgrounds to create are to use a stencil and embossing paste!  I'm struggling with coming up with a design for Christmas cards for this year but I may have stumbled on a design thanks to Susie's challenge!  I used my Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Layering Stencil and sprinkled red embossing paste and heat embossed when it was dry.  I do like this simple design!  I thought the sentiment from my Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Light stamp set, so pretty!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Treats!

Hi everyone!  I'm back again today to share a card with you I made for Simon Says Monday challenge which is treats.  My card is also for this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  This week we have this great sketch:
I used the sucker from my Sugar Rush stamp set but turned it upside down and made it into a carmel apple!  This was a real fun sketch, I had a lot of fun making this card!  I added glossy accents to the caramel and Wink of Stella to make the apple a little sparkly :)
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Pink Balloon

Hi everyone!  Today's card is for Jeanne's Hope You Can Cling To challenge, Pink Balloon.  This idea evolved as I was making the card and I love when that happens!  I started out cutting the side with my Simon Says Curved Edge die, then I cut out the happy birthday with my Elizabeth Craft die, I used my impression plate and came up with the idea to use a strip of washi tape below the sentiment and did the same thing for the balloon.  I tied a piece of thread and had it dangle down to the dot in the "i" and applied an enamel dot.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

thank you

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for Tabbatha's Hope You Can Cling To challenge.  She wants us to make a thank you card but also use 2 different mediums.  You know I LOVE embossing paste so I had to be sure that I used that for one of my mediums!  I used my Tim Holtz Splatters Layering Stencil and sprinkled Zing Chestnut Embossing Powder over, heat embossed my sentiment with the Chestnut and sprayed Smooch Sprits Candle Glow from quite a distance.  When it was dry I added some sequins that went along nicely with the colors!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
