Rose ATC

This is an artist trading card (ATC) I made for a group swap.  The requirements were to use lace, ribbon, or bow, glitter, your choice of image and a green circle.  I forgot about the green circle and glitter until I had completed the cards, so I improvised and slid a punched circle behind the charm and added the glitter to just the exposed section. Sometimes mistakes are what I like best about an art project! 

I printed the rose background paper from Miss Cutiepie Inspiration and Freebies Blog she has a lot of wonderful freebie images! Cardstock, ribbon and glitter is from Stampin' Up. I used Distress Ink in Antique Linen to ink around all the edges of the papers and cardstock. I love the little peace charm. I have had them in my collection for years, do not remember where I got them. I love doing the artist trading cards they are fun little pieces of art! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day  :-)

Pinwheel Birthday Card

My inspiration for this pinwheel card came from the May 2011 Card Marker Magazine Page 18.  I used Stampin' Up's 1 1/2" Scallop Square punch for my pinwheels.  The pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Collection - Hazel Papers 6x6 pad.  The buttons and cardstock are Stampin' Up.   

Thanks for stopping by!

A day without....

I have been really trying to concentrate on 10 minute or less cards here lately.  I am in the process of creating a series of note card sets for a fundraiser and I need 200 + cards, therefore I need nice and simple cards that still look great! This is a classic example of just that!

This is a great image from Unity Stamps!  It could be a day without friends, sisters, or drinks is a day lost! So many meaning with this one! I used Stampin Up papers and inks. Lighting is bad, but the pinks, reds and browns really look great together!
