Make It Monday I am stepping a bit out of my box on this one. I am not really one to make a card that isn't mailable in a regular envelope, but I saw these flowers in my Cardmaker magazine and just had to try them. I did not have the exact punch, but made do with what I had. I cut a piece of Sandy Stripe Vellum (Peachy Velvet Stripe would substitute well) 6 1/2 x 1 1/2 and then used a border punch on the piece. I scored it to coordinate with the pattern and accordian folded the piece. I glued the ends to make a circle. I pushed the circle down and glued the flower to a 1 inch piece of scrap cardstock. The card base is Basis Light Yellow. The pink layer is Mountain Rose Glimmer and Magenta Basis. The green layer is Serpentine Mica/Meltallic and Teal Basis. I then just had to add a little ribbon

Midnight Madness. This is my birthday card for my daughter. Her birthday is on the 25. This stamp and embossing folder set is made by Hero Arts. The color was added with the colorbox stylus and I used distress inks. I also added some distress inks to the flowers.
Do You Stack Up is layering. I also need to get an entry into Make it Monday. The stamp I used is from Stampscapes and the sentiment is Stamping UP

Blueberry Brown Bag. I cut the corners with a Martha Stewart corner punch and put squares of the Brown Bag behind the corners so the design could be seen. The center is cut from Laser Silver Lustre. I added some old paper and frayed burlap distress ink to that piece because I wanted a cream look. The flowers are cute from Cranberry Brown Bag. This was a Stampin Up flower die that cut and embossed. I love the Brown Bag cardstock because I could sand the raised part and the Brown Bag showed through. The leaves are Olive Brown Bag. Sorry the picture isn't the greatest. That's what you get for waiting until the last minute to get your post ready. I had to try and get a picture with out glare and that was really hard to do in the evening.

Makeover Monday. Thought this would be good for the challenge at Do You Stack Up also because the theme was anything goes. I cut the train out with my Slice. The border is a Martha Stewart punch. The stamps are from a clear set I had from Paper Studio.
Make Monday Challenge and also the Partytime Tuesday Challenge where the theme is anything goes.
