Thinking of You Card

 We've got a new card sketch up today at Atlantic Hearts Sketches. We have a new sketch every Monday and on Wednesday, we show all the Dt members examples and pick the top three winners from the previous week. Come join us!


Here's the sketch


I started by brushing on 3 different colors of Distress Oxide ink for the background. Then using some stamps from MFT, I stamped the images in black and added the sentiment. Pretty easy card but it took me all day to get the stamping the way I liked it. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Disney

 We've got a new sketch up at Sketches in Thyme today. This week's sketch is by Jenessa Franco. I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it!


Here's the sketch


I got to use up a lot of scraps on this layout, actually, everything on here is from my scrap pile! Then just added all the embellies and it was done. Quick and easy but looks like a lot of work here.

Thanks for stopping by!

NYE 2018

 I've got a new challenge up today at Cookin' Up Creations. This month's theme is Just Like Grandma Used to Make. We will be taking actual cooking recipes and turning them into layout recipes by taking each recipe and coming up with a scrappy item to represent each ingredient. Sounds like fun, right?


This recipe is from a dear Aunt of mine. She always made these at Christmas. They are delicious! Each challenge will have the full recipe in it so you can try out the recipe and make a layout from it. If you want to see what my "scrappy ingredients" are you can stop by the forum here to check it out.

I've got a new challenge up today at Cookin' Up Creations. This month's theme is Just Like Grandma Used to Make. We will be taking actual cooking recipes and turning them into layout recipes by taking each recipe and coming up with a scrappy item to represent each ingredient. Sounds like fun, right?


My layout is based on a recipe from my mother called Tortilla Roll Ups. I haven't had this in years so I just might have to make it one night soon. Each challenge will have the full recipe in it so you can try out the recipe and make a layout from it. If you want to see what my "scrappy ingredients" are you can stop by the forum here to check it out.

Llama Love

 We've got a new card sketch up at Atlantic Hearts Sketches today. We have a new sketch every Monday and on Wednesday we reveal the DT members examples and announce the top 3 winners from the week before. This week's card sketch is for a slim-line card. I'm really starting to like the slim-line cards since you can get so much more on the card.


Here's the sketch


I have had these llama stamps and dies by Recollections for the longest time and as soon as I saw this sketch I knew I had to use them. That plus I needed a birthday card for a good friend who is crazy about llamas. The tickled pink sentiment is from an MFT stamp set and it just went perfectly with the pink llamas. The patterned paper is from a Paper Studio stack.

Miniature Golf

 I've got a new challenge up today over at Cookin' Up Creations. This month's theme is Christmas Countdown! Join us for some fun times as we countdown to Christmas. The countdown will feature a daily post that may be a holiday tip, a fun activity, a game, a challenge, a recipe or other surprises!


My challenge is a color challenge with an added twist. 
When you think of Christmas you probably think of red and green. So for this challenge pick either red or green and pair it with another color for your layout. Along with those 2 colors, I want you to use something not usually found on a layout.

For my layout I chose the color red and paired it with black and added some red netting from a bag of lemons and black netting from a ham. I added some red and black splatters and some red and black patterned paper along with some black stickers.


Thanks for stopping by!

Love

 There's a new card sketch up on the Atlantic Hearts Sketches blog today. We have a new one every Monday and on Wednesday's we show all the DT members examples and we pick the 3 top winners from the previous week. Stop by and play along with us!


Here's the sketch


This is such a fun sketch! I decided to start on my Valentine's Day cards with it and I love how it came out. I cut all the diamonds out on my Cricut, embossed the background with a tiny heart embossing folder and added some heart shaped puffy stickers. The sentiment was also cut with my Cricut.

Thanks for stopping by!

YUM

 We've got a new sketch challenge up at Sketches in Thyme. This weeks sketch is by Bev Code and it's a fun one too. I liked it so much that I stayed very close to the sketch.


Here's the sketch


I made the background by using a 12 x 12 chicken wire stencil and created a rainbow effect using Distress Oxide inks. Then since the stencil was covered in ink I turned it over onto some white cardstock and pressed down to get the reverse image of the stencil. I liked that much better so decided to use it for this layout. Then just cut some 1 inch strips, layered them on top and added the photos of my granddaughter enjoying her smore. The title was cut using my Cricut and the stickers were some old leftovers from a card kit.

I hope you'll come play along with us!

Diamond Diva

 I've got a new challenge up at Cookin' Up Creations. This month's theme is a Christmas Countdown. We will be having either a challenge or a holiday tip, recipe, Christmas game or an other surprise. Be sure to check in daily.....you never know what you might find. And did I mention prizes, too!


For my challenge you must use a black or dark background as your base and then add some shapes that sparkle or sequins or crystals. I started with a black background and then cut some bright pink diamonds with my Cricut. I added some tiny white stars and some pink sequins. I also dotted both i's in the title with some clear crystals.


Thanks for stopping by!

 We've got a new card sketch up over at Atlantic Hearts Sketches today. We have a new card sketch up each Monday and on Wednesday's we show all the Design Teams examples and announce the winners from the previous week. I hope you'll come play along with us!


Here's the sketch


I just love all the dimension on this sketch. I used some smooth red glitter paper for the diamonds. I cut the diamonds with my Cricut and the gold ornament was cut using a Jeanine's Art die.
