Muse Challenge #14

My very crafty friend Virginia is featured over at the Muse Challenge blog this week so I knew I had to play along.  :)  Here is Virginia's beautiful card.

And the card below is my interpretation. I was inspired by the flowers and the colors. I also cased a design I saw on Jennifer McGuire's blog, but changed it slightly by using the die cut heart instead of the masking technique. I used the Flower Friend stamp set from Simon Says Stamps and Hero Arts mid-tone inks to stamp on patterned paper. The heart die cut and note card are also from Hero Arts.

If you haven't played along, there's still time, so go now and create!  :)  And thanks for stopping by today.

CASology Up challenge

I love hot air balloons so when I saw that the theme on the CASology challenge blog this week is Up, I knew I had to play along. Check out the challenge here.

Here is my card. I colored the balloon with Copic markers. 

Hope you're having a great weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by.

It's time to Scramble!

The Hero Arts Flickr group has card Scrambles every couple weeks. If you don't know what a scramble is, it's a specific time where you are given 90 minutes to make a card based on a theme that the host has chosen. You don't get to know the theme ahead of time. Anyway, here are a couple cards that I made for different scrambles. All of the stamps used on these cards are from Hero Arts.

The theme of the scramble for this first card was embossing. I dry embossed the background of the card and I heat embossed the flower panel and inked it with distress inks.

The theme of the scramble for the card below was to use pink/green plus patterned paper, plus a die cut.   This was a little more challenging, but I pulled it off and came up with this card.  :)

If you'd like to join in on one of the Scrambles, here's some information. There is one coming up this Saturday!
