Happy Birthday Card "After"

So yeah, I couldn't just leave it all plain and boring.  I added the faux stitching, bow and stickles.  Now I think I can call it done.  I just won't enter this one into the challenge.

Oh, and welcome new follower Tonya!  Not that I had to threaten her with her job or anything...

Happy Birthday Card - SSC2 Week 1, Day 4

Today's challenge over at Summer Card Camp 2 was to make a card in 10 minutes.  Fortunately you can gather your supplies before the timer starts!  Well, let's just say it's a lot harder than it sounds.  That's even when using a pre-made card base.  This challenge sure made me realize just how much agonizing I do so it was kind of nice to be forced to "just do it"!

Thanks for Caring - SSC2 Week 1 Day 3

For today's card I used a Masked Background technique.  Rather than placing a banner sentiment on top of the pink, I used a SU punch and let the sentiment show through.

Fight Like A Girl - SCC2 Week 1 Day 2

For today's SCC card, I wanted to try Jennifer's technique of multi-inking with masking.  Right away I saw a stamp set I received last year from A-Muse Studio to "Stamp Out Breast Cancer".  Then I grabbed this fun paper from Pink Paislee from the "She Art" collection.

Originally I stamped some ribbons in yellow, orange and dark pink along the left on the white cardstock.  I really didn't like the way it turned out.  I used a Martha Stewart punch and then colored in my "stripes".

You Make Me Smile - SCC2 Week 1 Day 1

I created this card for Online Card Classes: Summer Card Camp 2.  I love that the designers gave us both a color inspiration and sketches.  The paper is My Minds' Eye and the stamps are Stampin Up.  I used Hero Arts Soft Pool Shadow Ink for the background.

I was so excited to hear that the Orange card was top 3 pick over at Stuck on U Sketches!  They do challenges which will work for cards or layouts.  Go check them out, it's fun to play along.

"Orange" You Sweet

Recently I went to a conference in Florida and brought back some oranges for my employees.  I made them each a card also.  This was done completely with the Silhouette Cameo.  The card also doubles as a submission to "Stuck On You Sketches" Switch-A-Roo challenge in which the "O" is switched out for the orange.
