Mo's Challenge # 123


Mo's Challenge this week is to use lace. Simple, isn't it?!

Meet "Adelle," one of Mo's new images for spring. Isn't she adorable? I used her because I'm feeling ready for warmer weather, returning birds and budding trees! 
Spring seems to be coming early to New Hampshire this year, but I'm not all that sure that we're done with winter. We've had some pretty good snow storms as late as April in  past years !

Tools: Copics, Mounting tape, Circle punch

Papers: SU! Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder, Neenah smooth white, Plaid DP

No lace and no Mo image on my second card, but it does look like spring!

Mo's Challenge # 122

What'd You Say?!

The theme this week for Mo's Challenge is "My Sentiments Exactly."  I think a good sentiment makes a card, so I really enjoyed this challenge!

I chose "Big Shoes" as the image for my card. Didn't we all love to dress up in our mother's clothes?!

The inside says, "Do you think we ever will? Happy Birthday, Kid!"

Images: "Big Shoes" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Circle punches, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set, Martha Stewart border punch, Mounting tape

Papers" SU! Mint (Which doesn't look true to color in the picture!), Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Neenah smooth white, MME "Lost & Found" DP

Embellishments: Grosgrain ribbon, Pearl Brad, Flowers from WOC, Gathered ribbon trim

Now it's your turn to make a card using one of Mo's images and a sentiment of your choice! Enter it in the challenge this week for a chance to win!

Mo's Challenge # 121

That's the theme for Mo's Challenge this week! You just choose one of Mo's images and three elements in a row (up, down, or diagonal) and create a card or project with them. Easy and fun, don't you think?!

I wanted to make a simple card, so my three choices were across the bottom row; dies or punches, brads, and dry embossing.Two images were printed, and one heart was colored, cut out and mounted over the image with mounting tape.

I like this challenge and may refer to this bingo card again for inspiration!

Images: "Shy Valentine James" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Sentiment stamp from Hero Arts

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Heart die and Embossing folder, Fine point black marker, Mounting tape

Papers: U! Real Red, Neenah  smooth white, DCWV

Now it's your turn to play Bingo and make something wonderful for a chance to win and add another of Mo's images to your growing collection!

Rick's Doodle

Twitter-Pated Valentine

I need a lot of Valentine's Day cards, so I'd better get going!
This is one of my first for this year. I've used an image called "Happy Doodle" from Rick St. Dennis that's available at his Etsy store.

This is called a Tri-Shutter card, and the tutorial can be found here on Split Coast Stampers
 I've been eyeing this design for some time, but just got around to making one! They are involved, but not at all difficult.  Rick's image is so cute and funky that I decided to go for an equally wild and funky color scheme, complete with goofy flowers!

Here's a close-up of the image. When the card was done, I wished that I had made the image a little larger so that it would stand out better among all the other elements. These cards are rather busy!

Image: "Happy Doodle" from Rick St. Dennis, Computer-generated sentiments

Tools: Copic markers, Spica glitter pens, Martha Stewart Heart and Bird Punches, Cuttlebug with Nestie and MTF Dizzy border die, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Real Red, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Prima flowers, Mini brads

I've entered this in the Allsorts Challenge, "Free and Easy" where anything goes this week!
Take a few minutes and check out Rick's designs! I think you'll be glad you did!

Thanks for stopping by!
