You Are Cherished

Up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today!
I'm a  little late with my post I was thinking I was to post tomorrow, anywho here's today's card featuring the Scribble Flowers and the All About You sets.

To make my card, I started with a top folding white note card and a piece ow watercolor paper cut down with a stitched die. I randomly stamped the floral images  from the Scribble Flowers set all over the watercolor paper using Versafine Black Onyx ink, next I just scribbled color over the images using Zig clean color real brush pens and then spritzed with water. After the panel dried I added randomly added some black dots with a fine tipped sharpie. 
For the greeting I stamped the word You from the All About You set using Versamark ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder so it would stand out against the background. I added the panel to a black mat and then to finish the card I stamped the rest of the greeting in Versamark ink on a black piece of card stock and heat set it with white embossing powder then used foam tape to give it dimension.

Calling All Sistahs August Reminder

It's the 17th of the month and time for the Calling All Sistahs reminder to check your girls. I have quite a few friends fighting this horrible disease at the present time, so please get your mammograms so you are not added to the count. 
As I have said before I lost my mom to breast cancer at a young age and I am a survivor myself so cancer hits home with me and I do not want any more of my friends to have to fight this horrible disease.

Cancer can be beaten if caught early so please do self exams and get your mammograms once a year if thats what the doctor suggests. You can also help find a cure by purchasing products from the Calling All Sistahs line where 50% of the profits go towards breast cancer research.

Now for my reminder card. 
I used the Hope Ribbon and the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-die on my card. I started with a white top folding card base and some patterned paper. I cut strips of the patterned paper and placed them on a scrap piece of card stock and then cut it out with the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die. I also added some of that same patterned paper to the bottom of my card.

Day Two of Rainbow Maker

I had to move on to Day two of the Rainbow Maker card class, I don't think I will get done before the galleries close but at least I can get a few cards in there.
I am loving this class because I love rainbows and color so you will continue to see lots of color in the coming days as I finish the class.
This card uses the set Balloon Celebration and the Stylized Birthday sentiment both by Stampin Up. I randomly stamped the balloon across the top in rainbow order and as I stamped I also stamped a second generation as well.
I used the Creative Corners by My Sweet Petunia to help me line up the greeting since it is wood mounted.

Still Day One

Yep I am still on day one of the Rainbow Maker card class at Online Card Classes. 
Today I used the stamp set Lovely Friends by Stamping Up, Distress inks and lots of sequins.
This card was super simple to make, I stated with a top folding note card and a panel cut down with a stitched die. I sponged the colors around in rainbow order and then added sequins in the colors also.

This card is also for a team challenge #team15in15

Believe in Yourself

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More. This week we have this gorgeous picture below for inspiration.

To make my card I started with a side folding note card and lots of funs sprays and distress oxide inks, lets just say I got pretty inky making his one. 
To make the background I used the Kaleidoscope stencils by Altenew and some Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet distress oxide ink. I started in the middle with the Peacock Feathers and the  sponged around the outside with Wilted Violet. 
Next I spritzed them with water and dabbed with a paper towel, then sprayed some gold and mint color shine by Heidi Swap across the front. I stamped the unicorn image from the set Unicorn Awesomeness by Concord & 9th on some Shimmery White paper by Stampin Up and cut it out using the coordinating die then colored it using Copic markers. 
After the background was dry I added the unicorn to the front with foam tape. To finish the card I stamped the greeting also from the Unicorn Awesomeness set and embossed it with white embossing powder.

Rainbow Maker Day One

I am taking a class at Online Card Classes called Rainbow Maker. Actually this class was all last week but schedule didn't allow me the time to work on any of the cards because I was super busy working on the Dare to Get Dirty challenge cards. So here is a card from Day one only 6 days late :)
This is a case of the card that Laura Bassen created in the class and let me tell ya hers looks way better than mine. 
To make my card I used a top folding note card and a panel cut down with a stitched die. For the balloons I used the new balloon die by Concord & 9th along with a stencil by Neat & Tangled. The happy is from the Happy Words set by Concord & 9th and the birthday is also by Concord & 9th from the Hooray set.
To finish off the card I added some clear sequins to give it a little sparkle.
