Card Patterns Sketch 133

Not a snappy name, but I like the way my card turned out.  I wish I could find the image again.  I think it's wonderful.  I followed the sketch pretty much to detail, using patterned paper as the 3 panel background.  I like the way it turned out - serene.  Hope you like it too.   Take a peek at Card Patterns Sketch # 133.

Night Night!  Happy Stamping.

Friendship, just a little bit of Friendship

You know you can always use a "friendship" card.  I used some die-cut flowers and leaves (made out of tissue boxes) and some Hero Arts (HA) images from Digital Design Kit "The Art of Style" and stamped a HA clear design note card and sentiments for fun with a wood Manuscript Background.   The felt red heart was just perfect - received it in a wonderful swap.  Used Copic markers for the digital images.  A little punching along the side over top of Warm Lipstick distress ink and I'll give this to someone who needs cheering up... maybe accompany the card with a little vino!  Entering this card in the Stamps R Us challenge and the flickr group Die Cut Divas challenge.  Visit both places.

Primary Colors - Butterflies will do it everytime

Back To School - Primary Colours
I love the Prickly Pear dies and as I was cutting some butterflies, I thought "OH, this is perfect, grab some red, yellow, and blue paper and get these babies cut".  I thought they would work well for a Get Well card too.  I stamped Hero Arts Circle Design on the top of the butterflies - love that stamp on these butterflies.   Since these are large butterflies I arranged them diagonally.  It really is a sweet card.

CCC September - a great sketch!

You'll have to check out Lily Pad Cards for the CCC Challenge.  I love to do sketches and love the one for September!  I scored lines on the top panel and stmped the dress in Vintage Photo on top of it, did a bit of distressing, some string and that marvelous shoe in the clear set from Hero Arts clear set (Glamorous).  The top photo was taken in sunlight and the second photo in artificial light.  The second photo is most color true. I think you can see the scoring on the first card much better.  Come join the fun at Lily Pad Cards in trading a wonderful card with someone who enjoys card-making as much as you do.

Here's the scoop!
