Pals Paper Arts #300

Good Evening,

Looks like we are in for a little more snow tonight. It has rained most of the day and the temperature has dropped to just about freezing already. Just when I think I can start on my garden, smacked me down again. LOL.
Inside the card.

I received some of my Pre Order goodies in the mail the other day so my card for the Pals Paper Art Sketch Challenge #300 is a little bit old and a little bit new. I wanted to try my hand at a shaker card and this is what I came up with. I used  the Endless Birthday set  to create the cake in the background and the one on the inside page shown below. The  paper is from the retiring Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. The card base, banner mat and the oval frame are Mint Macaron. I stamped my images on Watercolor Paper. The little banner is from the new catalog coming out in June. The stamp set is Thoughtful Banners and it has a co-ordinating punch that goes with it. You can get the two items together as a bundle and save 10%. I used the new Foam Adhesive Strips to create the Shaker frame. What is really cute is the little Sprinkles in the shaker oval that I cut with the new Sprinkles Punch. I cut some in Mint Macaron and some in Flirty Flamingo. I colored the cake with my Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen. Then I accented the image with the Clear Wink of Stella (which I am sure will not show in my photo with my rainy weather). The inks I used were Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and the new Flirty Flamingo. The Markers were Flirty Flamingo on the cake, Crumb Cake on the cake stand and Daffodil Delight on the candle's sparkle. The Banner background was stamped in Crumb Cake and the sentiment was stamped in Flirty Flamingo.

I hope you like my card. If you do please leave a comment, they mean so much to me.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge Sketch #193

Hello Everyone,

I am a little late posting this so please forgive me. The card I made for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #193 is made from the Stampin Up' Birthday Blossoms set. I also used the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper. Like I said, a little late. Gotta Post it. LOL.

Paper Craft Crew Challenges #192

Hello Everyone,

It's been a while since I have been able to post anything, or make anything to post. My mother in law passed away on March 18th and the services were held in San Diego, CA. It took us almost a month  to get that settled. But we are home at last and are slowly finding our way out of the sadness that we felt through it all.

The card I created is for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #192. I really like their sketches, don't you?
It was a lot of fun playing with the watercolor background I created for it. I found a tutorial for that  over on friends gatherink. You should try it if you haven't already.


Paper - Pool Party Cardstock for the base & banner, Watercolor Paper for the Card Front, Bermuda Bay Cardstock for the Focal Mat and Whisper White Cardstock for the focal image and the Sentiment Banner.
