sweet little baby

I combined a few challenges to make a fun baby card. I used CPS Sketch 129:

I rotated the sketch and also used 365 Cards Day 173 - Mixed Message. The challenge there is to incorporate three ways to create a sentiment to make one big sentiment.

I made the sentiment using part of a rubber stamp (sweet), a chipboard sticker (little), and Sizzix die cut letters (baby). The patterned paper is more American Crafts. I added some ink around the edges (Tim Holtz), some stitching, a piece of denim fabric, and ribbon. I love it! Thanks for looking!

2S4Y/birthday wishes

I think I have a paper problem. I have more paper than I could ever use, but I bought even MORE. I was at Archiver's, and they had American Crafts packs on clearance for 50% off. I debated forever since I didn't need it. I finally decided on the "Play" pack but put it back on the shelf at least twice. Then I bought it before I could talk myself out of it again. :) I used some to make a card for Kazan's Sketch 33 at 2 Sketches 4 You--

I also bought some scalloped flat cards. I don't like cutting scalloped borders freehand because they never come out right. Thanks for looking!

you did it!

Another week is gone and only one completed challenge card! I used Laura's Sketch 32:

I combined the sketch with 365 Cards Day 165 - Shape Up! where a star had to be the dominant shape on your card. I love stars, so I didn't want to miss out on this challenge.

I used more yummy American Crafts patterned paper. It doesn't get any better than stars and polka dots! Thanks for looking!

2S4Y Kazan's Sketch 32

Kazan has a great sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You:

I am loving the set of K & Company stickers I bought on clearance at Michael's. I think I'm going to go back and buy everything they've got! I used one of the stickers and American Crafts papers to make this baby card:

Thanks for looking!

a few sketch challenges

I used a few sketch challenges to make some cards. I'm making some moving cards/announcements and used the sketch for 365 Cards Day 155 - Super Sketch Sunday as inspiration:

I missed out on the Card Patterns sketch challenge last week. I had to play along this week for Sketch 26 because I love stars:

I bought the cutest set of K & Company baby stickers on clearance on Michael's. I don't scrapbook (yet!), but they're great to use for little sentiments on my cards. The colors match these American Crafts papers almost perfectly. Thanks for looking!

cute as a button

I managed to make one more card this week that combined three challenges. I used Card Patterns Sketch 25 but missed the deadline. For 365 Cards Day 153 - Tag, You're It, the challenge is to use a journaling tag. I didn't have any tags in my stash, so I made one using stamps. The Caardvarks challenge to create a shower card, so I made a card suitable for a baby shower using my favorite baby card sentiment.

Thanks for looking!
