Lime Green and Purple with Stripes

Simon Says Stamp's challenge this week is to use stripes.  For Summer of Color week 3, we are to use lime green and purple.  So, I made this birthday card to enter in both challenges.  The card base and ribbon are limeade ice from Papertrey Ink and the piece with the chevron arrows was done by sponging paint through a Crafter's Workshop stencil.  The mat is a deep purple color.  So there's my purple and lime green.
I used a piece of striped patterned paper from Fancy Pants for the scalloped circle.  Image is Hampton Arts for Graphic 45 from the Secret Garden collection.  I lightly colored the bird with chalks and pencils. Finally, the sentiment is from Pink by Design and the dies are all Spellbinders.
I really like how this card turned out and it's always good to have birthday cards of hand.

Chocolate ATCs

I made these ATC's for a swap at Collage Stuff.  I'm also entering this in Simon Says Stamp button challenge.  The buttons I used here are Jenni Bowlin chipboard.  I also used collage images from Collage Stuff, Dylusions spray mist, a Crafter's Workshop stencil, tissue tape, twine and some trim.  The stamp is from My Favorite Things and is stamped on vellum.

Here's a close up of my favorite:

Another Father's Day card

This is the card I made for my dad.  I used a My Favorite Things stamp (the ship) and a Stamping Scrapping stamp (sentiment).  Paper is Glitz.  I also used Spellbinders Circle dies and a MFT banner die.  I finished it off with some bling glued to a game piece.  This used the MFT Wednesday sketch and was entered into their challenge at Splitcoast stampers.

Mojo Monday 296

I made this card for my niece's birthday.  She just turned 7.  I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday 296 with just a slight tweak to fit my design.  The bunny stamp is from October Afternoon and the sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  Patterned papers are My Mind's Eye.  I love how this turned out!

The Letter "S" for Father's Day

This week on the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog, we are challenged to use the letter "S" in our project.  This could be a supply, subject matter, technique, whatever we choose.  I chose to stamp, of course, but I also used a stencil.  I used a crafter's workshop stencil and pounced paint through it.  It's the chevron arrow print in lower background of my card.  I used Tim Holtz's new tiny stamps for the main images. The sentiment is from Stamping Scrapping.  This will be my husband's Father's Day card.
