The Card Concept




Today is my last post as a design team member for The Card Concept. I have had such a great time being on the team for the last 2 years! But I have a lot on my plate right now, so have decided to step down and cut back a bit. I hope to be able to play along once in awhile though!!


I used a rain boot die cut that a friend had given me, and added a bunch of flowers and greens from Cheery Lynn to make this bright and cheerful spring card!

The scalloped rectangles are also from Cheery Lynn, and the sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers "Rainy Days."




I want to thank everyone at The Card Concept..it's been a fun time!

Cheery Lynn Whimsical Giraffe



Hi everyone!
Sandy has a fun sketch for us this week at The Paper Players:



I was pretty liberal with the sketch and actually turned the square into a group of clouds for my baby card! 
The giraffe and clouds are from Cheery Lynn, and the sentiment is from Impression Obsession. I added a few sequins and a twine bow,too.

Cheery Lynn's Fancy Reindeer



Here's the color challenge at The Christmas Card Challenge this week:




I went with a clean and simple card, starting out with MFT's pierced rectangle and some of Tim Holtz trees. I added a Fancy Reindeer with some silver holly from Cheery Lynn, and stamped the sentiment from Penny Black's Festive Sentiments.

I hope you will join us!!

Cheery Lynn Seahorse card set


Hi everyone!

I'm sharing a set of cards I made for over at the Cheery Lynn blog today.



 I cut the cute seahorses out of some alcohol ink background papers I made some time ago....you can find the link on how to do it here.



For the top card I backed it all on some scallop rectangles, and the bottom I kept very clean and simple:

Here's a list of the Cheery Lynn dies used:

Papertrey's Easter Alleluia's


Happy Easter everyone!

Today I'm sharing the cards I made and sent to friends and relatives this year. I used Paper Trey's Scene It Skyscapes and Easter Alleluias stamps. The center flower is from Stampin' Up's Timeless Tags thinlits.


 I made a bunch of cards...using several colors and inlaying all the pieces:







The inlaying took some time, but I had lots of fun making them!

I wish you all a blessed and happy Easter!

Dies R Us Tags


Hi everyone!

Grab our Badge!

Well...... I LOVE to make tags!

I decided to make a few for Easter using Impression Obsessions bunny set.







I also used Taylored Expressions Build a Tag 2 and grass along with Cheery Lynn's Horizontal Fishtail Banners.


The sentiment is from Lizzie Anne's Tiny Tidbits. I tied on a bit of bakers twine.....and they were ready to go!

Cheery Lynn Butterfly for The Card Concept


Hi everyone!

Here's the challenge photo for over at The Card Concept:



I was inspired by the butterflies, and used Cheery Lynn's Butterfly #5. I did a bit of layering with Cherry Lynn's pierced circles and rectangles. The foliage is also from Cheery Lynn...the Floral Bouquet kit, a set that has become a favorite of mine!

There's so many ways one could go with this photo...I hope you will play along!

Blessed Script from Taylored Expression




Today Joanne has a color challenge...such a pretty one too!


I had some fun with this color combo and Stampin' Up's Timeless Tags Thinlits.

I backed it on some rectangles from Lil Inker and My Favorite Things.

Taylored Expressions Build a Tag 2


Here's the new photo inspiration at The Christmas Card Challenge:


The gingerbread house reminded me of the gingerbread boy die I have from Tonic Studios. I love the cute stitching.



I also used the Build a Tag 2 set from  Taylored Expressions, I use that set ALL the time! I love making tags.... it's SO much fun.


I had him hold a candy cane from Impression Obsessions Christmas Icons, then tied on some bakers twine.


I hope you will head on over to The Christmas Card Challenge and join us! Only 260 days or so till Christmas...never too early to get those cards done!
