Creative Corner Challenge "Blue & Turquoise"


Somehow this blog post got lost in the "bloggerland" so I will re-post!

This week we were given the theme of Blue & Turquoise.  I had a limited amount of time to create, so this was a fast, simple card!

Here is what I came up with:

I hope you enjoy and will be back again in 2 weeks with another creation for Creative Corner Challenges!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #73

Happy Tuesday!

Oh did I have fun making this week's creation for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I have been wanting to play with my Tim Holtz "Wild West" stamp set for ages and this sketch seemed perfect!

Here was the sketch:

I actually created 2 cards from this sketch - one with a more "feminine" pink twist and one more "masculine" version.  Here is what I created:

I hope you will come and play along this week!  The sketches are always fun!

Until next time,

Creative Corner Challenge - Male Theme!

Hello!  Happy Friday!

I am just here with a quick post.  I wanted to share with you my creation for this week.  The theme was "male", which a lot of crafters can struggle with.

I have been playing with some old Creative Memories paper and came up with some fun "football" cards.

Here was my card:

I made a few others too:

I hope you enjoyed my creations and hope that you come and play along too!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #71


I just received some adorable new stamps in the mail a few weeks ago and this week's sketch was perfect for using them!!

Here was our sketch:
I played with a retired paper pack from Close to My Heart called Later Sk8r.  The stampset is by Art Impressions and is called "Disco".  Here is my card:

I fussy cut the shirt after I stamped it on a piece of designer paper (from my scrap pile).  The inside of the card is the most fun!  Take a peek:

Yes, it says "Shake your BOOTY" and the   "Backside" is mounted on a spring so it shakes!!!  Cute heh?  I just love it!!

Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you come and join us at the challenge!
