Merry Monday

My Christmas card for this week at http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.ca/   that Bonnie has challenged us with. We are to use any or all of the words "Love, Joy and Peace". 
I made mine by re-purposing an old card from years ago. I matted the image with gold foil cardstock and used a Fiskar corner punch. I fussy cut the holly from another single sheet pattern and added Ranger Crackle Accents to make them thicker and give then a glossy look. I then added red pearls for the "berries".

Mojo Monday

Fly Me to the Moon
This is a card I created using this week's sketch at http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/  The photo is an internet download, I used a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen to add sparkle to the girl's dress and the surrounding stars. The sentiment I wrote and printed out on the Explore, as well as cutting out the matted banner. All papers are from my  scrap box, and I added a strip of satin/organza ribbon.

The Paper Players

Time to Celebrate!
The challenge at http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/ this week is to make a "Celebration" CAS themed card.  A celebration card is a fun card to make since it means it will be a FUN  & HAPPY time for the recipient!

Sentiment - I downloaded the image and filled all of it in with a Gelly Roll Pen in "Clear Star" to add sparkle to it. To the corners I added iridescent sequins to pick up all the colors in the image., and there you have it, clean and simple!!

Mojo Monday

Dad, you are...
This is a music inspired card I made using this week's sketch by Julee Tillman at Mojo Monday, and  is very fitting for Father's Day this coming Sunday.
Butterfly - Is a Martha Stewart punch, I cut out two butterflies and misted them with silver Pearl EX, glued the blue one flat onto the card base and the white one I bent up and added red. white and blue gems. The sheet music and Dad sentiment are computer-generated. The circle is a Spellbinder die which I embossed with a Provo Craft "Allegro" folder.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

 
Kitty Kat
I made this card using this cute Kitty digi from Dearie Dolls.  I love these simple images and the creator Mary Ellen creates and shares her cute digis, check out her images here: http://freedeariedollsdigistamps.blogspot.com
 I cut the Kitty using a Spellbinder and I also matted it with chipboard for depth. I used a clear  star Gelly Roll pen on the ears and on the pink bow for some sparkle, not very noticeable, though. The pattern papers are from Recollections 6"X6" "Paddywack" stack and the solid lime one is regular cardstock. The ribbon is from an assorted collection pack from Michael's. The heart shaped buttons are from my Button jar...don't know the brand, sorry!

Snoopy and Woodstock

Gotta love this two fellers, you can't help but be happy when they and the rest of the gang are around. The whole gang is always able to celebrate any occasion with very little....as they say..."Less is More"!
This card I made using the sketch from Mojo Monday. I wanted to use this image so I flipped it for the image to fit better.
Image - Download from Internet. I used a Clear Glitter Gelly Roll pen on the show flakes, Snoopy's and Woodstock's hats, on the present, ornaments and treetop Star I used a gold Gelly pen.
Sentiments - Both written and cut on Explore.
Base Pattern - Single sheet rack from Michael's or Hobby Lobby.
The big snowball I misted with Pearl Mist in "Sparkle Gold". The snowball and sentiments are embossed with a "Stars" Cuttlebug folder.
