Don't Sweat It Birthday Card

Here's a fun card using the Art Impressions stamp set Don't Sweat It.  I paperpieced her top and die cut the banners using papers from the Recollections Paddywack 6x6 pack.  I am entering this card in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, which this week is Anything Goes

PTI Make It Monday - Masking Sentiments Card 2

Here is my second card for the Papertrey Make It Monday challenge.  It's basically the same card only for this one I used the PTI Circle Scribbles stamp set for my background.  Again, the sentiment is from the PTI stamp set Mini Blooms and the dots were done using Inkssentials Enamel Accents.

PTI Make It Monday - Masking Sentiments

Today's card was made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge.  Ashley Cannon Newell has a video showing her tips & tricks for masking sentiments.  My card was made using the PTI Funky Florals as my background.  I just used a square punch on a post-it to make my mask, then stamped it with the "Hello There" sentiment from the PTI stamp set Mini Blooms.  I used Inkssentials Enamel Accents for the black dots around the sentiment.  It's a little hard to see in the pic, but I used blue, pink & yellow Stickles on all the dots.  In person it's really pops and almost looks like fireworks.

Changing Things Up

Today's card is a change of pace from my usual cards.  I try to come up with my own designs or work off of a sketch from a challenge, but every now and then I see a fantastic card design that I want to recreate.  And that is what today's card is about.  I saw this card on the Do Stamping with Dawn blog.  She is a Stampin Up Demonstrator that has many unique card designs that are easy to create, but look great.  I went to a SU party several years ago and when I saw the Summer Silhouettes stamp set I had to have it.  Well with everything it was put on the shelf and never used.  When I saw Dawn's card I had to pull out this set and fell in love with all over again.  To see Dawn's card click the link HERE.  I changed up the sentiment, which was from the SU Sincere Salutations set.  I just banded my ribbon  instead of a bow and layered the stamp piece on Old Olive card stock.  Here is my card.  

 Since this card was so easy to do I made several using different sentiments.

I went a little crazy and did the inside too!

Have a great weekend...

Art Impressions Challenge - Anything Goes

Well, I am finally back after hip replacement surgery.  It's taken time to manage the steps, so this was the first week I was able to get down to my craft area and make some cards.  Today's card is for the Art Impression Challenge - Anything Goes.  I pulled out the AI stamp & sentiment set Goldie Golfer, colored her with Copics & paper pieced the skirt & visor.  The papers were just from my scrap bin.  The letters were cut using the MFT By the Letters Die-namics  and the background paper was cut using the PTI Angle Vertical Die.  Here's my card for this week's challenge.
