Sketchy Ladybugs -- Guest Designer at Feeling Sketchy

My Nautical Dreamer card was a Top Pick for Feeling Sketchy #220, so I was invited to be a Guest Designer! They provided me with "Spring Ladybug" from StarStampz and their fabulous Sketch #222. I had tons of fun with both!

Spin Your Spurs! Embossing at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Embossing (heat or dry).


The cowboy hat & banjo are cut/embossed with a Cuttlebug/Disney set. I used a two-toned Core'Dinations cardstock and sanded the raised section to reveal the peach color. The spurs are made with a copper paper. I created the "Spin Your Spurs" sentiment with the Rosewood font. The patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket and Graphic 45.

Pilin' On the Seasonal Kiddos

Our new theme at Pile It On is Boys of Summer/Winter; and since it's the 3rd Sunday of the month, we have an optional bonus theme: Girls of Summer/Winter. You may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs, and I used their adorable "Let's See" digi stamp.


The ladybug paper is from Graphic 45. The yellow paper is a handmade paper with a lot of texture, and I embossed it with a Taylored Expressions folders. The cloud dies are from Latin Crafter, and the sentiments are from Echo Park's Alice in Wonderland set, and I stamped them with distress inks. I made the ladybugs with a tiny circle die. The daisies are from a lace ribbon. I had lots of fun making this!

Cloud Shaker -- Monochrome at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Monochrome.


I used a cloud shape from my cutting software (SCAL) to create the card and cut it on my Cameo. The front is made with a white handmade paper that I die-cut with an Elizabeth Craft die. The cloud shaker is from Jillybean Soup and I filled it with flower sequins from Paper Sweeties. The bird stamp is from Artsy Fartsy, and the blue ink is Blueprint Sketch distress ink. The sentiment inside the shaker is heat-embossed in white. I'm really happy with this design, and may have to make it again!
