St. Patty day Birthday card

I'm back with my second card for today that I will be entering into a few challenges! They will be listed below. It's another St. Pat's theme, but for a birthday this time. I plan to send this to a friend from HS, she and my youngest share a St. Pat's day birthday! 

I used a stamp I found while going through my stash and used to create the background. I used a $1 Cupcake stamp (from Michaels) and a sentiment for Hats off to You for my panel. Once it was colored with my Copics I die cut the panel with the Stitched banner die and popped it up with foam tape, then finished it off with some twine.

Linking up too the following challenges...

Lucky to have.

I've got a quick card to share that I will be linking up to a few challenges, they will be listed down below. It's a very clean and simple card that would be easy to remake.

I stamped the sentiment in my go to hybrid ink by MFT and the clovers in Distress inks Old Paper for a tone on tone look. Then I used my Prisma colored pencils to color the clovers green.

ATSM- #280 Photo

Today is the start of a new challenge over at ATSM blog and it's a photo inspiration. 

I just loved all the butterflies and springy colors. So that is what I chose to use for inspiration on my card this week. I used distress inks to blend the colors on a scrap piece of square card stock, that I adhered onto my cardbase. The butterfly was die cut twice and glued together at the body. I fully adhered the bottom butterfly to my inked panel and curled the top butterfly slightly, so the wings pop up a little.

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment below the panel and added some chunky glitter above and below the butterfly. 

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment (love reading them)or to follow me (to stay updated with new post).  Have a great day!!!

Thrilled for you

I had some time to sit around and play for a bit this morning, I decided to work on a card inspired some MFT challenges. Luckily got them done in time to link them up too! Usually I end up being a little to late to link up by the time I get a card done. I need to work on my timing! ;-)

I used the color combo ( Pinks are not a go to color for me but loved them with the gray and black)

and the sketch from the MFT challenges.

I used an older stamp set to stamp some leaves across the front of my card in black ink. Then colored them in using some copics to coordinate with the colors. I stamped the sentiment and used a banner from a blue prints die set to cut it down. 

I finished the card by popping the sentiment strip on with some foam tape and added some irredescent glitter for some sparkle. 

Thanks for stopping by and havea great day!
