The Card Concept Challenge # 55

Hello everybody!
Welcome to The Card Concept
We have a  new challenge for you to try! 


Here is my card!


I stamped my images onto vellum paper with Black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Next, I colored the flowers with pink ZIG Real Brush Markers and a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. The flowers are so shiny IRL!  I was inspired to try this technique by a video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire!


I trimmed down the vellum leaving some of the petals hanging off the edge. 
I attached the vellum panel to some scripted pattern paper. To add a little more aqua color, I adhered 2 thin strips of aqua card stock and attached them right under the edges of the vellum panel.

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at 

Please visit my teammates for more inspiration!

SugarPea Designs #54


Hello my stampy friends!
Welcome to our 3rd weekly sketch challenge for May at SugarPea Designs

Here is this week's Sketch:


Here is my card :


I interpreted this sketch a little loosely!!!!

But aren't those little baby dinosaurs precious????? I colored my little dinosaurs and trees with watercolor pencils this time. I haven't used them in a long time!



I fussy cut one of the little dinosaurs and made him peek behind the tree! Unfortunately, I accidentally cut off his little horn on the top of his head. I figured I could pretend he was a preemie and it hadn't developed yet! ha!

Here are the stamps and Sugar Cuts that I used:

Paper Sweeties May 2016 Release Rewind!

Hello everybody!
It is REWIND Day here at Paper Sweeties




It's time to show you how easy it is to mix the newest Paper Sweeties Stamps and Sweet Cuts with older releases to make all kinds of cards and projects!


Today's card features several different stamp sets. The darling bees are from Bee Happy. The pretty posies are from Thinking of You. I stamped the bees and flowers with Black Memento ink and colored them with Copic Markers. The  images were then cut out with their matching Sweet Cuts!
The fun trail behind the bee is one of the new Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders
That border is what inspired my Bee themed card!!!!
