I love Sunflowers so I really love the challenge for the Classy Cards N Such blog this week.

We were given a beautiful inspiration picture for this week.  My friends can tell you I also love a yellow and black color combination, I use it quite often and especially for cards with sunflowers.

Do you not just love the bow on my card?   That is another die that I am loving these days.  It is a Sue Wilson die.

Speedy Fox and Friends - CAS

Everyone likes a CAS challenge so Speedy Fox and Friends are bringing you one today.   I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamps called "Block Flowers" and I really like them in the bright colors along with the turquoise paper.

Classy Cards N Such - Celebrating You

My card today showcases a image from the JustRite Botanical Medallions & Banners   stamp set.    I love Poppies  so you might see me make a lot of cards with Poppies.





I colored my Poppies with Copic markers.   I cut the image  and the layer with the Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty Seven dies. I attached the image to white embossed card stock.  I used red sequins with White Pearls in the center for my embellishments next to my poppies and sentiment.  

News flash - now there is a new die called Sequins by My Favorite Things. You can make your own sequins using one of the many Foil or Metallic paper packages available at Classy Cards 'n such. Click here to see them and the products that are listed above, don't forget-use the code Shirley-10 for a 10% discount!  

I stamped the sentiment, cut it out and made a layer to go behind it.


I hope you enjoyed the card today and the recipe for making it.

Speedy TV Inspiration Challenge - Salt and Pepper Shakers

This week we are using vintage salt and pepper shakers for our inspiration for my challenge over at Speedy TV.   I remember my mom collecting a lot of them when I was a kid.  Those were the days.  

For my card I chose the Mark's Finest Paper stamps called "Hum Along" to use on my card.  I used red, white and blue because my inspiration came from the colors in the picture I chose.  I used a different color of blue because the darker blue  did not have an oriental look.

Here is the picture that I chose for  inspiration on this challenge.


I hope you will join us for the challenge.  It would make my day to see your card uploaded to Mr. Linky.

Classy Cards N Such - Home Is Where the Heart Is


  I am super excited today because I used the  new Sue Wilson dies  on my card.   If you haven't seen these dies, you might want to check them out in the Classy Cards N Such store.   I started out with a vanilla card base and I cut the next layer from the (pink) Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper.  

I used the A2 Divine Elegance die to cut the fancy background layer.   I took another piece of the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Paper and placed two dies from  California Collection- Beverly Hills dies  to cut the next beautiful layer.   Next I used a Spellbinders label die from the A2 Filigree Delight package and used vanilla paper with it.  For the final layer, I used the Spellbinders Classic  Scalloped heart die to cut the heart.  I stamped "Happy BIrthday" on the heart from a stamp in my collection.   I used White pearls to embellish the die cuts.  



Thank you, for coming by today to take a look at my card.    I hope you will join us for our "Home is Where the Heart is"  challenge.  We would love to see your card.

Squigglefly - Use Red, Brown, Yellow and Orange

Today over at the Squigglefly blog we are to make a card using red, brown, yellow and orange.
I chose to use a Cheryl Grant Alger image called "Bella Drinks the Profit".  The inside and outside sentiment is computer generated.  The inside says "Set Up a Lemonade Stand".   

Thank you for coming by today.
