CFC 127: I love you so much

Hello again! I made another card inspired by Angela of Paper and Ribbons. You can find her beautiful card HERE.

I created this card for CAS-ual Fridays CFC 127 Over the edge challenge. 

I cut an A2 card size about 1/4 inch smaller on all sides so that I can have those pretty hearts over the edge and still fit in an envelope. 

I have a lot of white heart diecuts. Will have to save those for a future project.  
Thanks for looking!

Dies: Lawn Fawn (Hearts)
Stamps: Mama Elephant (Love Quotes)
Paper: g. c. d studios (Daydream Ensemble)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black)

Runway Inspired Challenge #53

Wow! I can't believe I found the time to make another card. This one was very time consuming but it was relaxing and liked the challenge. The challenge is for Runway Inspired Challenge #53. I wish I can wear a dress like this. So pretty!

This was my second card. My first card was a big fail because I didn't cover the Quatrefoil die with enough glue. So when I die cut the Marianna Vine, pieces of my Quatrefoil design was falling apart. 

So the second attempt I put the diecuts through my Xyron sticker maker. Worked out so much better and was so much easier.

Here's a closer look at the details. I cut out the Marianne Vine in white shiny cardstock and colored the leaves with Copics. The pearls I bought from a dollar store at a scrapbook convention and also colored with Copics.  The verse was stamped with white ink , used clear embossing powder and also colored with Copics. 

I am going to make more cards like this cuz I love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Materials used:
Dies: Papertrey Ink (Quatrefoil), Memory Box (Large Marianna Vine)
Stamps: Mama Elephant (Love from Above)
Embellies: dollar store pearls colored with Copics.

Love and Hope

It's rainy and gloomy outside. It's perfect weather (Yes, we need the rain) to make some cards. My sister is the guest designer for the CASology challenge. You can see her card HERE. She is very talented, makes beautiful cards and has already won many contests from them. Yay, Sis! I have to be the big supportive sister and participate in her challenge.

No stamping on this card.

I added light pink cardstock to give the card more layers,  texture and depth. I'm also submitting this card as a second submission to The Card Concept challenge, this time using the Clean and Layered technique. 


Thank you for looking.

Supplies Used:
Dies: Paper Smooches (Love Word and Hope)
Papertrey Ink (Grand Ampersand)

you are loved

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I have completed a card for a challenge... well, I'm combining two challenges really.

I really had fun stamping the background. I found it quite relaxing for me. Stamping on the vellum, not so fun. I couldn't get a dark image and I kept smudging the ink. Even though it wasn't noticeable to someone else, I knew the smudge was there and made a second card.

I made this card for Mama Elephant's challenge where I picked up the pinks and the pearls. I used three of their stamp sets and their Femme Frames die in this card. I love Mama Elephant.

Also this is my first challenge entry for The Card Concept. I consider my card to be Classy and Elegant because I added sparkling embellishments, used a rich and monochromatic color scheme with sweeping stamped images and embellishments. 

I hope you like my card and know that you are loved! 

Thanks for stopping by!
