Lots-a-layers birthday card

Here is another fun, Sweet n sassy, lots-a-layers sketch. The Balloons are from sweet n sassy stamps, accented with stickles. I can't believe I have only one Happy Birthday sentiment in my whole collection of stamps! I used this one from TAC.

Happy Valentines

I made this card using the February contest sketch from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. This was a big challenge to me since I'm not used to using so many layers, but once I got started I was surprised at how it all came together so well. The Sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy's Heartfelt sentiments set. I had this DP in my stash that had purple background, orange, gold and red hearts, so I basically used that to get my colors together. I found the striped gold and silver background paper and it seemed to balance well with the gold in the hearts. The little sayings of Be mine and Forever were cut from some 6 x 6 DP. Buttons and small heart stamp is from Stampin Up.

This is going out as a get well card. I used the sketch from this week's mojo challenge and the stamp set is from Sweet N Sassy's Trust in the Lord set. All of the paper is from my scraps. The tiny brads on the ribbon are from the hodge podge hardware set from Stampin' up

Cute panda graphic art

This is my oldest daughter's creation. I just had to put in on my blog because it's so cute! She did it with Adobe photo shop cs2 program. She's so talented with any kind of art and enjoys playing with graphic art on
the computer as well.


This is for the mojo 23 contest at Poetic Artisty. It took me several days to decide which stamp set to use for the sentiment. This one is from Stampin up's Happy Harmony set from last years sell-a-bration. Here are some details for the card: First I used acrylic paint left over from my daughter's art work to paint on white cardstock. I used a technique the kids learned recently and first wet the card stock then stroked red paint across the paper. It did curl up when it dried, but I was able to flatten in out before attaching it to the card stock. I matted this piece onto Pink passion card stock. The next layer is pretty in pink matted on pink passion. The ribbon is light pink and red, tied onto a dark pink swirl clip from TAC. The dp is from my scrap pile ( Dick Blick) The red circle was cut with nestibilites and the sentiment on the circle is also from some misc. dp in my scrap pile. The sentiment was stamped first with versamark and then cameo coral over that. The Happiness Always is pink passion ink and the edges of the sentiment are lightly sponged with cameo coral. This was a fun card to create and I'm already thinking about some more square cards I could work on.
