I changed the colours, the designer papers and the stamps and accessories. I kept the basic layout minus a few layers. I stamped my Lily of the Valley twice and cut out and popped it up on dimensionals. I also used new paper I have from Basic Grey, it is the Granola Designer Paper Pack.

We were to use circles on our card. I used my circle Nesties and my Bloom Dots Embossing folder. My Paisley embossing folder was also used on this card.
This card also is for the CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS Weekend Colour Challenge over at PaperCraft Planet. The link is in my sidebar, or click on the link above to play along. Our colours this week were Night of Navy, Creamy Carmel, Riding Hood Red, with White as our Neutral.
I sponged over the edges of the embossed bloom dots to define the circles a bit more. Charlie was coloured with an aquapainter, and I tried my hand at the cloud tutorials that I have seen.

It is 5.5 x 7 in.
I wanted to make something calming and serene. Today's Ways To Use it Challenge fit perfectly with this stamp I used. We were to use one stamp and stamp it more than once on our card.
I stamped the grass from Inspired By Nature(SU) twice on this card. I also did quite a bit of sponging and used my brayer.
This beautiful sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps called Words of Sympathy. I added some highlights on the grass with my white gel pen. The butterfly has some crystal stickles added to it. The photo corners are up on dimensionals.
I hope you like it. I hope it brings some comfort to my co-worker.

The second was for Mothermarks Tuesday Teapot Challenge.
If you aren't familiar with them, click on the links and play along. The layout comes from the OCC Challenge and Mothermarks teapot was to use white on white.
I used two different types of white paper, Whisper White and Shimmery White. I also used the Textile embossing Folder to create some texture.
I stamped the Lily of the Valley with black Staz-on ink and coloured in the flowers with my white gel pen. The leaves were lightly coloured with the aquapainter in Kiwi Kiss. I added two different ribbons and some dew drops across the top. The oval is up on dimensionals.

I like how this turned out. I have a few friends celebrating their Anniversary in May. So I am sure this will find its way to one of their mailboxes.

We were to use Kraft card stock today on our card. I paired it with Always Artichoke. I had just bought this pretty Satin ribbon and wanted to use it. I also used the SU Pattern Pack of DP that was a hostess gift a while back.
I embossed the flowers and sentiment from the Bella Blossoms stamp set. I sponged around the edges with Always Artichoke.
I used my Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch to give the edges of the dp some interest. I also used my new oval scallop punch from SU. I love it!
I hope you like my card...thanks for looking today. Have a great evening.

. I also used the sketch from this weeks MOJOMONDAY challenge. I used different embosssing folders to create different textures to create the sketch. I learned something today too....when your card is done..leave it alone! I decided to add some colour to the texured areas with my ink pads. I wished I would have left it white. Live and Learn!
These cute stamps can be found at http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/ and are new for May. This set is called Kuddly Koala. I love it since Koala Bears are one of my favourite animals. I stamped my Koala twice and coloured it in with inks and my blender pen. I then popped it up on dimensionals. I used my Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch and some white sheer dotted ribbon. Thanks for looking...have a great evening.

This is the card I made for today's Featured Stamper on Splitcoast Sparkplug17. THIS is her card that I cased.
I unfortunately need a sympathy card tommorow for a funeral I am attending.
I changed the designer paper(Basic Grey Bittersweet), stamps(CDS Words of Sympathy), and embossing folder(Textile).
I used Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip, one of my favourite colour combos. I love this dsp from Basic Grey's Bittersweet paper pack. I used my slit punch to create the scallop and my Martha Stewart border and butterfly punches.
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I created this card for the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.com.
I was inspired by this dress HERE.
I also was able to use NEW stamps for May from Clear Dollar Stamps. This set is called Words Of Gratitude. I think it is so elegant.
I used Tempting Turquoise textured paper and ran it thru the cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls embossing folder. I then used Galaxy Gold ink to highlight the raised edges.
I used Fine Gold EP to emboss the sentiment and the prima, which was originally white. I used my Martha Stewart Arched Lattice punch to create the decorative edges. After adding some ribbon and gold cording my card was done.
I was quite pleased with how it turned out since I don't usually used bright colours. I hope you like it too. Thanks for looking.
I am VERY new at this whole blogging thing..so I hope I can figure it out as I go.
I will try and post some pictures tommorow!
