Progressive Card

In my workshops lately, I have been doing a lot of 3x3 cards. They are great for just a note, to put on a present or just send off as a thank-you. Well Heather over at Stamp with Heather has a challenge this week to take a 3x3 card and make it into a standard size card. I'm thinking, how awesome is this. I have (8) 3x3 cards from one workshop and (4) 3x3 cards from another workshop. I'm up for this challenge. She also has a sketch challenge out there this week. So, what do I think. Humm.... use the sketch and make a progressive card. Here is Heather's sketch and my progressive cards.

Here is where it started, 3x3 card.
This is how it ended up.

Card recipe: Stampin' Up stamp set 24/7
Mellow Moss, Barely Banana, Easter DSP, Cameo Coral Ink, Certainly Celery Ink, Chocolate Chip 1/4 in grosgrain ribbon, pretty in pink satin ribbon. I also cut out the little flowers in the standard size card and popped them up with pop dots.

I hope you enjoy.

Stamp with Heather - Challenge #4

Today Heather over at Stamp with Heather posted her Sunday sketch. I love her sketches. Here is her sketch and here is my submission. I used the following Stampin Up Products.
Kraft Card Stock
I used the flowers and center piece from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit (it's not just to decorate eggs), Wings of Friendship Stamp set and I used versamark ink and the popping pastels technique on the bird. Buttons are one of the blues (not sure which, my upline gave them to me :) ), and pretty in pink satin ribbon (I love this ribbon) and the sentiment is a rub-on from Chit Chat.

Now I'm off to make my submission for Just Buggin'

Hope you enjoy.


Stamp with Heather - Challenge #3

Design challenge-006

This is such a great sketch. Stamp with Heather had this for her challenge last week. It ends in a couple of hours, so I'm down to the wire. I used (one of the pinks - pink passion, pretty in pink card stock), pretty in pink satin ribbon. The curly label punch, some rub-ons from my stash, twine, and some baubles I got in a swap. I used water color paper (I just got this in my last order) and watercolored the image with Magnificent Magenta, Orchard Opulence, and Summer Sun. I colored on a clear block with my markers and picked up the color with an aqua painter. I really love how this card turned out. For the sentiment I used rub-ons from Chit Chat. Hope you enjoy!

Challenge #27 - Creative Cards

This week over at Just Buggin' we were suppose to use the creative card feature on any cartridge. I used Wild Card for mine and it's a card I made for a friend who just bought her first home. I love the envelope shaped like the door. Enjoy.
