Make it Monday #100 and Critter #126

Well it is Monday again.  I like doing my posting on Sunday, but it just didn't happen.  This is another card I made for a sample at the shop I work at.  I just love this little hedgehog.  This is my entry for Make it Monday challenge.  I wanted to use this card for my entry at the Critter Sketch Challenge where the challenge was anything goes.

Make it Monday #99 and Totally Gorjuss #141

I got out the brayer again on this card.  I used a multicolor pad and glossy card stock.  I stamped the background with the cover-a-card background from impression obsession with a versamark pad and then put down the color with the brayer.  I stamped the main image with the same multicolor pad on cryogen white so it has that slight sparkle.   This is my entry for Make it Monday and Totally Gorjuss where the challenge was leaves.  I think a tree fits.

Make it Monday #98

Here is another card I made for a sample for a local stamp/gift shop.  I just love going to work and getting some time to play.  This is my entry for Make it Monday this week. I used a multicolor pad and brayered on the color.  I stamped the background image and then used a pearlized embossing powder to add the butterflies.  This is a simple card, but I loved the look.

Make it Monday #97

Someone on one of my Yahoo groups posted the link to make this card. I just thought is was so different. This is an anniversary card for my daughter and son-in-law. The colors at their wedding were pool and brown. I have used dark chocolate mica metallic and lagoon mica metallic. I stamped the main front image on cryogen and colored with image with colored pencils. I just love the rich color of the dark chocolate and the lagoon. Add sparkle to all the papers and I am in heaven. This was my Paper Temptress post for today.  Also thought this would be a great card for Make it Monday.

Make it Monday #96

Here is another card that I made for a demo at the Stamp/Gift shop that I work at.  I recently went to a scrapbook show and they were demoing usine a coffee bean stamp and making it into a ladybug.  I thought the idea was adorable. I thought I would share on Make it Monday this week

Sketch Saturday #214

This is a card I made for my son-in-law. The sketch came from Sketch Saturday.  I saw the idea for the embellishment below the deer on Splitcoast stamper.  It is just foam squares and I just some perfect pearls on one sticky side.  I thought the idea was pretty cute.

Totally Gorjuss #138

The challenge at Totally Gorjuss this wee was sweet and simple.  This is a wedding card for a friend of my husband.  I got this die and stamp from Memory Box a while back.  I just love orchid flowers. I stamped the image in green and colored the flowers with copic markers.  I don't use a lot of designer paper, but have a large stash and decided to use some of it.
