1-14 Card challenge

I got my cards done for this weeks card challenge. I actually made 6 of each so that is 18 for my stash!! WOOT WOOT!!

Here are the sketches I posted on the MB.

To be honest I wasn't too keen on the first sketch. But I thought it would be a challenge to come up with a card with that sketch. I used an Inkadinkado set that I had for the medallion and sentiment. I used Mini Monograms for the scallop circle and George for the triangles, which I squished to the size I needed for the card. I used the Stampin Up ticket punch on the corners of the card mat.

The second sketch I really liked. I even made two versions of it!! LOL For the first one I used Storybook for the butterfly and Tags, Bags, Boxes and more for the tag.

On this version I used Storybook for the flowers and Tags, Bags, Boxes and more for the tag. I used flock on the flowers to add some dimension and color since there wasn't a cut for the individual flowers. I just used a Zig glue pen to cover the area I needed and then added the flock. I think it turned out pretty nice.


  1. I am not worthy!!((bowing low))Okie...your cards ROCK! I love the way you color the edges...mine never turn out like that. Use the cricut to cut the triangles...why didn't I think of that? DOH!!! *slaps forehead*

  2. Just hold your ink pad at a 45 degree angle to the paper and swipe it on the edge! That should do it!

  3. Love the cards. You do such nice work. Thanks for sharing your photos of them.
