Framed Poppy

Here is a card I made for the Classy Cards N Such blog today.  I am still loving my Poppy Stamps Angel Corner die.  I attached them behind the circle to make a frame for it.   The stamp I used today came from the Heartfelt Creations stamp set called "Blazing Poppy Vase".  After I cut my image out, I left it in the die and sponged around it with Scattered Straw distress ink.  I made the bumble bee using a Memory Box die called Jolly Bumblebees.

The products mentioned above may be found in the Classy Cards N Such store.

Classy Cards N Such Color Inspiration Challenge - English Roses

The challenge for Classy Cards N Such blog is a color challenge this week.  I made this card using Heartfelt Creations Poppy Paper Pad.  The main focal point, the English Rose Bouquet die by Memory box was cut out and then I sponged distress ink behind the roses.    I colored the leaves with markers.  I used a Memory Box Baptisia die to cute the corner on the white card stock.   I added sequings to give it a little pizzazz.  The sentiment is from the  I used Art Institute glue to adhere the pieces to my card.  I added a sentiment using the Sweet n Sassy stamp set called Cocoa's Get Well Wishes.

I hope you will join us for the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

CCNS-Hello Sunshine

I love yellow and black cards, these colors just have a happy look to them or is it a sun shiny look?
On this card, with the sun peeking over the umbrella,  I would say a sun shiny look.

The oval die is the Spellbinders Floral Oval die and I placed a  umbrella (Spellbinder's Umbrella Trio)  over it.  The fun part of my card was making he cloud made with the Memory Box Puffy Cloud die.   I stamped the sentiment on the cloud,  I thought it was the perfect place for the sentiment.  Don't you?

Have a great weekend and thanks a bunch for stopping by today.

Classy Cards - Just For You

Here is a card I made for the Classy Card N Such challenge this week.  We were given a inspiration picture.  It had a white brick wall,  greenery, a bunny and  a flower pot.  I used a embossing folder on white card stock to make it look like the brick wall.  I used the Spellbinder Delight Window Two to cut the window.     I used Heartfelt Creations paper to put behind the window.  The greenery was made using the Memory Box Lavish Branch die.  I used the Poppy Stamps Small Hydrangea Bloom die for the yellow flowers.  I used Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiment set to stamp the "Just For You".  I used the Precious Hearts die for the bow and heart.  I glued all the pieces to the card using Art Institute Clear Adhesive.

I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.

Thank you for coming over and checking out my card today.

Sunflower Butterfly - Classy Cards N Such

Sorry I have been MIA lately.  I have a new little grand-daughter that had to arrive in this world earlier than planned.  She weighed 2lb. 4 oz..  I spent some time in hospital with the momma before she was sent to a larger city.  I had my 5 wk old granddaughter over night so her dad and mom could go be with them.  Various other things going on, too.   Seems like everything happens at once.   I am trying to get caught up and I will visit everyone's blog soon.

The challenge for Classy Cards N Such is to use an embossing folder to add texture to our cards.  This card went down a different path than I had planned, but that was a good thing as I do like this card.   I used the Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing.   The butterfly was made using a die by Memory Box called Willoughby Butterfly Wings.  I added rhinestones to the butterly and the border.   All of the mentioned products may be found at Classy Cards N Such store.  You may use the code Shirley-10 for a discount.

Thanks, for coming by today.
