Card in Envy Challenge “Cute and Cuddly”

Good evening cardmakers and scrapbookers.

After some time off of cardmaking, my mom and I are back at it for awhile and I’m getting back into entering some card challenges.

Time to visit my friends at Cards in Envy!   The theme for their challenge this month is “Cute and Cuddly”.  I immediately thought of this adorable card that my mom made recently and had to put it up . . .

The image including the hat, elephant, skirt, and shoes are from on of my favorites Stamps by Judith and Heather.

Enjoy!

Happy crafting,

Sparkle N Sprinkle August Challenge “Anything Goes”

Happy almost end of August cardmakers and scrapbookers!

I went the Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg, IL yesterday and of course spent some quality time at one of my favorite booths . . . Sparkle N Sprinkle!

And of course this time I just went for it and bought an entire tube of a mixture of glitters and embossing powders!!

I was so happy to get an email this afternoon letting me know about their August Challenge which is Anything Goes as long as it uses loose glitter or embossing powder . . . check the challenge blog out for yourself at the following link Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Anyway, given that it is getting into football season, here is my entry.

I used Sparkle N Sprinkle Embossing Powder (EP) Irish Spring detail opaque for the tree in this photo.

All of the stamps from this project including the tree, the cheese, the beer mug, and the football are from Stamps by Judith and Heather.  Check them out!

Enjoy and Go Pack Go!

Cards in Envy Challenge: Autumn Leaves #2

Hi again all,

I happen to love everything about the season of autumn . . . football, pumpkin spice lattes, cool crisp weather, and of course the beautiful leaves.  So . . . needless to say this challenge is right up my alley as I love trying to capture the colors of the season in my cards.   Thank you Cards in Envy!!!

Here is a second entry I just whipped up tonight with some great autumnal leaves paper I found in my collection:

Add that autumn leaves paper with a Darice leave embossing folder, some great leaf brads from the Eyelet Outlet (check them out if you haven’t already), some gold ribbon, and alas, a nice little card to drop someone a line this time of year!

 

Thanks Cards in Envy,

Heather
