You're Cool

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes

If my granddaughter gets a card, my grandson must have one too!  This is from the same Simon Says Stamp set as the cat mermaid.  It's fun to make boy cards too!

Nana Camp Invite and Ticket

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Anything Goes

My granddaughter comes here every year for Nana Camp.  This is her invitation and ticket.
I have been trying to use vellum in different ways.  Her I used it for the pocket.

Z Fold Christmas Stripe

Simon Says Stamp:  Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge

Another Z Fold card inspired by Jennifer McGuire.

I am doing very few Christmas cards this year but this one may already be my favorite.

Working with red ink is challenging for me so this card took some time.  But those beautiful red stripes from the Concord & 9th stamp are just beautiful!  Hero Arts Schoolhouse Red is one of my most favorite ink pads.
The poinsettia image is from The Ton.  I stamped it in Memento and colored it with Copic.
The sentiment from Hero Arts is white heat embossed.
Tim Holtz' greenery dies were just perfect for texture.

Z Fold Happy Birthday

Simon Says Stamp:  Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge

One of my card-making group's challenge for this month is to use an old product or technique.

The Z fold has been around for a long time.  But Jennifer McGuire gave it a new life in her recent post.  She used the Concord &9th stripe background across the inside of the card.
I loved the look and the Hero Arts soft yellow ink.

I used Ellen Hutson's Mondo Sakura bouquet for the fold-over front.  It's stamped in Memento and colored with Copic markers.  Stickles give it some glitter.
The sentiment from Simon Says Stamp is heat embossed in white.

Tropical Christmas

Tropical Chic is my favorite Stampin Up set ever!  I am finding every way possible to use it.
I saw a card by Wende Waldman using a red background.  It inspired me to make a Christmas card with Tropical Chic.

All images are by Stampin Up except the sentiment which is by Lawn Fawn.

Altenew Floral Sympathy

This is inspired by a Jennifer McGuire youtube that's about two years old.
I haven't gotten vellum out for a very long time.  And just look what I missed!
All images and sentiment are from Altenew.

Tropical Friend

I love the Stampin Up Tropical Chic set.  It was my favorite from the first time I saw the catalog.
The background DSP, cardstock, stamps, sentiment and dies are all from either Tropical Chic or Bird Banter by Stampin Up.

Glossy Accents and some Wink of Stella give it some shine.
