Challenge 405 – Flower Love

We have another great challenge at Try Stampin on Tuesday. And you may be thinking that this card looks a lot like another card that I posted and you would be right. I used the same colors and another piece of pattern paper that I stamped. But I changed up the image in the circle to give a little variety.

Challenge 403 – Alcohol Ink Coloring

For this weeks challenge at Try Stampin On Tuesday I have done a little stamping and colored it in with alcohol ink markers. This card is simple but creates a great impact. I did emboss the background with the Subtle Embossing folder but it was hard to capture in the photo. I hope to see what you come up with over on the challenge blog.

This month for Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe we have a very elegant board for you. I was inspired to make this very shinny birthday card. I used a little glitter paper in the flower centers, the flowers are hot foiled on to vellum, and of course I used floral. I used an alcohol marker to color my vellum flowers.

This challenge is also teaming up with Double Trouble Challenge blog.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop

We are doing 3D items for this blog hop. This is my first one and hopefully I will have many more in the future.

I decided to make a basket for this Blog Hop. The basket design credit goes to Maymay Made it. I used a video by her to create the basket and some great paper that I found at my local scrapbooking store.

Here is the link to the video tutorial in case you want to make one. It is called a slatted basket. Personally I wish that more of the underneath paper showed so if i ever made another one I would make the slats a little thinner.
