My second card today was created for the AAA Cards Challenge. To create my card I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock down slightly smaller than my card base. I prepped the cardstock with my EK Success powder tool and then stamped the beautiful mandala image onto the paper using Versamark clear ink. I then coated the panel with Recollections snow white embossing powder. I heat set the panel and then inked it using Tim Holtz distress ink in picked raspberry. I wiped the panel down with a clean baby white to get the ink off of the white embossing. I then cut down a piece of vellum that I got at my local Hobby Lobby. I prepped it with the same powder tool. I stamped the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink and Concord & 9th's Sophisticated Script stamp set. Once stamped I covered the panel with some Recollections clear embossing powder and heat set it. I glued both panels down to the card base and added some 6mm sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The inside of the card reads, " Good Job Mom. Happy Mother's Day!" My mom loved it!
Hello, and happy Sunday! Today's card was created for the latest Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. To create my card I started by layering a piece of pink ombre swiss dot patterned paper from the Jen Hadfield Home Made 6x6 pattern paper pad onto my white card base. I then stamped the adorable three tiered tray of cupcakes from the Unity Stamp Company Unexpected Places kit of the month onto some white Copic-friendly paper using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored the image using my alcohol markers. I then fussy cut the image out and inked around the edges using my dual tip Memento marker. I adhered an adorable 4" doily from Sunny Side Up Bakery onto my card and then added the cupcake image by popping it up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the same kit of the month stamp set onto the card and to finish it off I added some sparkle with some pretty sequins from Neat & Tangled and some Stickles in pink. I hope you like it!

Today's card was created for my good friend Freda's birthday. She's a great friend, an awesome workout partner, and an all around beautiful lady! She absolutely loves Harley Quinn and I wanted to create a card with that same feel. So, I started by stamping the Stampotique Moth Fab girl onto some Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored her to look like Harley and then fussy cut her out. Using my Windows program on my computer I created the sentiment and printed it out onto some plain white cardstock. I then distressed the background panel using distress inks in squeezed lemonade, broken china, worn lipstick, and black soot and some fun stencils from TCW and Tim Holtz to create a nice grungy look. I popped my stamped image up off of the card using some 3M foam tape and added some shimmer to her using my Sakura Gelly Roll clear glitter pen. I mounted the entire panel to some Stampin' UP black cardstock and mounted that directly to my white card base. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I know Freda will love her card!
