Chevron Thank U card and a Giveaway

I am sharing a card in March/April 2013 Paper Crafts Magazine, which is also my winning card for the last World Card Making Day contest.  I did not have time to take a picture before I sent out the card.  This is the scanned image from the magazine.

The stamps I used for this card are Avery Elle To the point set and Framed Fonts set.  The card stock is Avery Elle speckled.


Now onto the giveaway:

I am giving away a $15 Avery Elle gift card.  Just leave me a comment and tell me your favorite apps for paper crafting (sketch, design, or take note, etc)  by midnight May 5th!  I will post the winner on Monday May 6th.  There is going to be an Avery Elle release soon (check out Avery Elle's design blog for sneak peak).  You know you want those trendy fun goodies :)

You are simply amazing

Happy Monday!

Today's card is for Fusion challenge #4 - the sketch.  The inspiration of the color and wood grain texture came from Moxie Fab World Trigger Tuesday.  Here are the inspiration picture of the two challenges.

 
  
The white wood grain card base is a reflection of the wood grain plate.  I used the shades of pink for the butterfly and background for the butterfly.  I used the tip Maile just shared to add a heat embossed gold edge to the sentiment as an echo to the silver spatula.


Here is the closeup of the embossed edge.


It is also entered into Dynamic Duos #50.

Thanks for stopping by.


Supplies:
cardstock: Avery Elle card stock, Bazzil card stock, PTI vellum
Stamp: Wplus9 quite like you
Ink: Stazon jet black
Other: PTI butterfly die; Amuse butterfly die; Avery Elle sequins

Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday, everyone.  

Both the cityscape and the speech bubble are from the Fresh Squeezed stamp On Trend 2013 set.

I stamped the cityscape with VersaMark ink and then brushed on Perfect Pearls in gold and blue.  Click on the image to see more details.  I used a strip of DCWV blue glitter paper to ground the city scape.

Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

For my Avery Elle post, please click here or scroll down.

It has been a while since I joined the fun of Papertrey Ink blog hop.  Today's hop is about Tilted designs, which I did notice it is hot right now.

For my card, I masked and inked the background. Then stamped some tiny butterflies and the sentiment.


Here is the inspiration photo for the hop.


This card is also going to CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC99 to celebrate Michelle's birthday.

Other challenges are A passion for papertrey and Simon Says challenge: anything goes challenge.

Just a note

Hello, everybody.

Today I have a card made with JJ's fabulous rounded diamond die set.  Love the fact that it is a nested die set which cut not only the diamond shape of four sizes, but also the outline shape.  There is a matching stamp set as well.

I cut the nested diamond in three color card stock and played with it.  Here is what I came up.


It is also entered into Simon Says challenge: anything goes.

cardstock: Avery Elle card stock
Stamp: Avery Elle To the point

You are simply amazing

I had some time today and made a card for a couple challenges.


It is inspired by the current Cloud9 blog hop picture.  The row of ikat border was echo of the ikat napkin in the picture.  I tried my hands stamping with watercolor to mimic the flowers in the picture.


There is a new challenge: Fusion. It is a sketch and/or inspiration challenge.  Not only the concept of the challenge is fun.  I also love the science geek feel of the blog.  The colors of the flowers on my card was inspired by the fusion photo.
It is also entered into Moxie Fab World: the Wonder of Watercolor challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

Supplies:
cardstock: 
Avery Elle card stock
Stamp: Avery Elle Ikat, Petals and stems, Wplus9 quite like you
Ink: Fresh ink limeade, Rangers worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, Memento tuxedo black
Other: Avery Elle sequins, embroidery floss, washi tape

Thanks for being so sweet



Today' card was created using Avery Elle April release stamp set Bonjour and the matching dies.  The big macoron was cut out on vellum and stamp.  Love the softness of pigment ink on vellum.  The sentiment was stamped on a stripe of patterned paper.  The sweet sequins are also this month's new product.
