52- Weekly Splitcoast Challenges

I made these two cards for the weekly splitcoast challenges. The first is the layered ribbon challenge- it is just a few different ribbons layered together. I like how it turned out- just nice and simple with the baroque set.

The second card was tougher- the colour combo this week was Real Red, Glorious Green and Night of Navy- not my ideal colour combo. Here is how it turned out- I had to add some gold accents. All and all ok but not my favorite. I hope the colour combo is better this week!

51- Birthday Card

I had my stamp club yesterday and wanted to do another card with Ranuka's Birthday Whimsy set. I love the colour combo

Colours: Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip

50- Mother's Day Card

Here is my last mother's day card- love it!! I adore the colour combo and the use of the dahlia folds

49- Mother's Day Card

This was my first time using the iridescent embossing powder- love it!! It's just hard to figure out when it has embossed- I singed the paper the first time. I also used my new printed paper- love it!!

48- Challenge Card

Sheila told me about a new type of challenge from Splitcoast. You look at the cards of a profiled stamper and you copy their card but you are supposed to make 2 changes. Well I made more than that but I like my finish product! Plus it's my first time sponging and I have to say I think it turned out quite well!

Here is the card I copied:

47- Criss Cross Will Make You Jump Jump!!

My first criss cross card- LOVE it!! I am super happy with it- and am hearting my baroque motifs set. I also love my new slit punch. Overall- this card just makes me smile. And it is SUPER easy. Here is the tutorial on how to make them:

46- Thank You Cards

I have been looking forward to doing these cards for weeks- I just needed to wait for the sets to come in. I adore my new background stamp- sooo much fun!!! LOVE these cards!

45- Mother's Day Cards

The first card combines two of the technique challenges from splitcoaststampers this week. This is the layout challenge and the colour challenge. It took me a while to figure out what stamps to use with the layout but I really wanted a mother's day card so here it is. It also gave me a chance to use this alphabet set for the first time.

The second card is another citrusy Mother's day card- I just think they are fresh and clean spring colours.

The third one is a scallop dahlia- I love me a dahlia!!
