Triple Stamp Card Hop ~

So glad you took the time to hop in today! This is another 1st for me....creating a triple stamp card! I have seen so many gorgeous cards but have never been willing to try it until now. You can find a great tutorial here....   Our awesome hostess Ashley has Blog Candy up for grabs so be sure and visit her blog to see how you can be entered to win! If you arrived from Ashley W. then you are in the right place. This is the 1st card I created. I was proud that I completed it but wasn't really happy with the quality of the stamped image.    So, on to card #2. I adhered the 3 layers to be stamped with removable glue dots. 
 With a piece of scratch paper under the layers, I stamped my image.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.  I took the layers apart, leaving the glue dots on, and cut my matting layers.  Be sure you have the layers in the right direction when you put them all together!   And here is my 2nd finished card. For my 3rd card (practice makes perfect right?), I…

Cut It Up ~ Challenge #4

The deadline for the Cut It Up Challenge #4 entries is October 31st so you still have time to play along! All you have to do is create a Halloween project using at least 1 die cut!

Red Carpet Studios current challenge is to create a card using pumpkins or other Halloween elements!

Supplies used:
Cricut Celebrate with Flourish Cartridge
The Paper Studio - Trick or Treat Paper Pad
The Paper Studio - Scallop Circle Punch
Polymark Fabric Paint
Pop dot behind the sentiment
Brads and sticker from my stash

Here is another card I created for a previous hop using the same cartridge.
Hope everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween!

Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge ~

The deadline for getting your Valentine/Love cards in to OWH is December 31st so I thought I would get a head start by creating one for this week's sketch challenge.

Still trying to figure out how NOT to get pink images when using the light box but hopefully, you get the idea. I used red cardstock. The heart and XO papers are from The Paper Studio. The banner edge was created using The Paper Studio square punch. The chipboard sentiment is from Studio G and is adhered with thin foam strips. The heart was a button and the gems are from my stash. I didn't have any red ones so I colored the white ones with a marker to match. Hope everyone has a wonderful and crafty week!!
Ok...the sun is up so here is a picture taken outdoors in the natural
