Hello and happy Sunday! Deb and I decided that "anything goes" this month for our collaboration. I wanted to created a birthday card this month since I noticed I was getting a little low on those and those seem to be what I send the most to friends and family. To create my card I started by layering a pretty piece of gingham patterned paper from the Pink & Main Beach Bum 6x6 paper pad onto my A2 white card base. I then cut a banner out of some patterned paper from the Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 paper pad using a fish tail banner die from Jillian Vance Designs and adhered it onto my card. I then die cut a circle panel using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things and stamped the background image using navy ink from Gina K Designs and an image from the Stampin' UP Wetlands stamp set. I then stamped the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Botanical Silhouettes stamp set using the same navy ink. I then stamped the layering butterfly from the Bo Bunny Flutter stamp set onto white cardstock using Stampin' UP's bashful blue ink and Gina K Designs navy ink and fussy cut the image out. I popped it up off of the card panel and finished the card off by adding some pretty clear rhinestones from The Paper Studio in various sizes. Thank you for stopping by today and if you like my card be sure to leave a kind word. I appreciate them all!
For my coffee selection this month I opted for some Cameron's Highlander's Grog served up in my favorite mug (given to me by my son and his wife).
Now be sure to head over to Debra's blog and see what fun she created for us today!

Today's card was created for the latest The Sisterhood Of Crafters challenge. To create my card I started by stamping the beautiful wedding dress from the Stampin' UP Love & Laughter stamp set onto some white cardstock and fussy cut the image out. Using the Stampin' UP Owl Builder punch I punched a small red heart and adhered it to the dress. I die cut a panel of white cardstock using a stitched edge rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs and stamped the sentiment from the same Stampin' UP wedding stamp set using Memento love letter red ink. I cut a panel of Paper Studio patterned paper and adhered a pretty lacy scalloped border I created using a Stampin' UP punch and adhered both directly to my A2 white card base. I popped the rectangle panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape and then adhered the dress onto the panel using some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives for some nice dimension. To finish my card off I added some clear rhinestones by Paper Studios to the corners of the focal panel. Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Wow, it's been a hot minute since I posted a card. I really need to stop playing outside so much and get back to cardmaking! Today's card was created for the latest Tuesday Throwdown card challenge.
To create this fun and easy card I started by layering some basic black cardstock onto my white A2 card base. I then cut down some shaped pieces of dark red cardstock to create a shirt bracket, collar, and breast pocked and backed each of those pieces with more of the black cardstock. I cut down a piece of plaid patterned paper from the Pink & Main Beach Bum 6x6 paper pad and added that a border of more black cardstock. I added all of those elements onto the card base to create a shirt. To finish my card I die cut some buttons using a MFT button die and more of the black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Happy Father's Day stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. To finish my card I added some black dashed lines around all of the elements to create a threaded seam. I will be sending this to my dad for Father's Day next week. Thank you for stopping off at my blog today and if you like my card be sure to leave a comment. I read and appreciate them all!
