Make it Monday #72

Hello and Happy Hump Day! Over the half way point to the weekend! Yay!

I'm just stopping in to share a quick card I made for this weeks Make it Monday, in which Dawn is challenging us to Step up our Embellishments! I have missed quite a few MIM's now, and with my June goodies making a landing on Monday (I ordered late, because I was out of town), I just had to play along! And this is what I came up with:

And here is a side view where you can hopefully see the dimension a little more:
I stepped up this embellishment on my card by adding lots of layers. I also heat embossed with clear EP the Pretty Peonies butterfly, and the Fancy Flourish. I stamped the Mat Stack 5 with the Mat Stack 5 Collection. It is a little hard to tell in the photo, but the bling matches the Winter Wisteria doily better IRL. Anyway, I hope you like my interpretation of this weeks challenge! I had a lot of fun with this card! I will be back soon with some cards I made and never posted using On The Farm.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and have a GREAT rest of your day!

Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop


Good Morning on this Monday morning, blog hoppers! Life has been kind of hectic around here lately, and last month I made a card for the hop, but was about 2 minutes late in getting it posted, so I wanted to make sure I had something ready to go this month! This month we had a beautiful inspiration picture to work from:


I always tend to take these challenges quite literally, and this month was no exception...

Not a lot of stamping on this one. Again, time was of the essence, and I think I spent the most time scouring my patterned paper stash trying to find a pattern that resembled the beautiful fabric in the pillow. I used a Harvest Gold 4 1/4 square base. I had cut the leaves from Ocean Tides felt, and made the little flower from Aqua Mist saddle stitch ribbon, and finished it off with a Tiny Tags stamped in Harvest Gold and New Leaf.

I have a few more cards I'll be sharing this week, and I'll be working on getting some life back into my neglected blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

WMS Sketch Challenge #100

Hey there and Happy Saturday! I'm just stopping in to play along this week with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog! It's their 100th Challenge, so I just had to play along! It is my first time participating with their challenges. This one is a big one, so it seemed like a good time to jump in! If you'd like to play along too, just click the link above! They have some great prizes, too! :)

This was the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:
I want to thank one of the mischief makers, and my sweet friend, Renee, for the very generous RAK I received yesterday! Almost everything on this card came from her, plus I have enough left to make many more cards! Thanks so much Renee! XOXO

Can you believe I even dusted off and used my Itop brad maker on this card? I've had that thing for at least over a year, and this is maybe the second time I've used it! I made the brad on the little doily flower that came from Renee.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope to get more cards for this sketch posted soon!

Stamps: Paris Nouveau (WMS)
Paper: Venice by 7 Gypsies
Dies: Tiny Tags, Chevron borders, Mat Stack 4 and Layerz (PTI)
Other: Itop brad maker, doily flower, ribbon, twine, gem flourish
