Stitched Up

Happy Wednesday! 
There is a new challenge up at Little Red Wagon.
This week the theme is "Sew It!"
Imke is our hostess and she would like to see stitching either real or faux.
I chose to do the faux stitching.
I used these two stamp sets:
Lawn Fawn - Sewn With Love  & Sugar Pea Designs - Knit Wit

To all of you who sew.....May your bobbin never be empty!

'till next time,

Rad Roses

I'm joining in on the fun with the ANYTHING GOES challenge
over at Paper Smooches!
I'm lovin' this Rad Roses Die from Paper Smooches.
It's hard to see in the above photo, but the flowers have a really pretty shine to them.
I got the cool colors and neat shine by die cutting the Rad Roses from
glossy paper that I had smooshed in distress ink. Like these:
This is so easy to do:
I use my glass matt and smear some distress inks around, spray with water and then smoosh the glossy paper around on it till you like it!

Hope you give it a try!

Happy Wednesday! 
There is a new challenge up at Little Red Wagon.
This week Brenda is the hostess and her theme is Happy Repeat Day!
 She challenges us to create a card using one of the elements more than one time.

I used the butterfly three times.

Here's what I did on the inside:
 The other day, I spent the afternoon playing with watercolors.
I made a big mess and ended up with a bunch of papers with colors smooshed
all over them. Amazing how when I put the butterfly die cut over them they looked much better!!
So that's what I did....glued the butterflies down
 and then cut them out as close to the butterfly as I could.

Supplies used:
Memory Box - Leavenworth Butterfly Trio
                             (used only the large butterfly)
My Favorite Things - sentiment from Beary Special Birthday
Stampendous - Inside sentiment 
4mm sequins assorted colors

Thanks for looking.

  Today I'd like to share a birthday card that i made for the
Dies R Us Blog.

This card was easy and fun to make, especially if you love to color!

Start with random stamping. Easy to do because there is no wrong way.
I used Copic Markers.  YR21, YR24, and E55 make a yummy looking Taco shell!
On the inside of the taco have some green for the lettuce, red for tomato and yellow for cheese.
The party hats can be any color...I think next time I do this, I'll make each hat a different color combo.
This is what I used to make this card:
Lawn Fawn - Year Nine Stamps
Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.

'till next time,
