Tag Box

In need of small boxes for a couple of lipsticks, and the tag punch came to the rescue.  I thought the sketch would work even at a smaller scale.  A little butterfly added life, oops... must add a pearl to the butterfly. Enjoy!!

For You Tag Box

Had to get created with a pretty and easy to make wrap for a lipstick.  This tag punch is so versatile, and I was able to create a box with it.  The sketch gave me the idea to decorate it.  Enjoy!

Pop Of Color

What a cute sketch!  I stared sort of a diary of important experiences and scriptures, and this sketch inspired me to create this postcard.  I stamped the flower and printed computer generated scripture over it.  The black and white idea was inspired by Gina K's card, I added a pop of color.  Enjoy!!

Timeless Textures

I wanted to work with the colors at CCMC and collaborate by adding a card to the challenge but I was really short on time.  Somehow the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch gave me the final push and using the Timeless Texture I put this card together.  Enjoy!

Birthday Card

This set from SU is really pretty and it allows you to choose the colors you want to create your scene with.  After the flowers were stamped, I heat embossed with clear over the color to give it a bit of glow.  I used the technique from Jennifer McGuire. Enjoy!

Dedication Card

Simple Dedication card for my daughter who is going to be the godmother to her best friend's daughter.  I used embossing folders to add some interest to the plain paper.  The cross was heat embossed with SU pewter EP, a little heart with diamond stickle was placed on the center of the cross.  Enjoy!

For You

I was inspired by the card Mary Fish made for Mojo Monday with the removable gift card envelope as part of the sketch.  However I made my own envelope, I'm not really happy with the Envelope Punch Board, the sizes are just not right and I don't like how the card fits. :( I will post how I made it in case you care to use it. As I hop challenges, three more caught my attention and was able to combine one card for all of them.  Enjoy!

Heat Embossed and Marker

This was heat embossed on a white card stock and colored with a black Tombow black marker using this technique by Jennifer McGuire in a class I went to.  Washi tapes were used instead or DSP.  Enjoy!

Card/Envelope all in one

Loving this card/envelope all in one, easy and cute.  I used the 3 x 3 1/2 guide from the envelope punch board that I found in this blog. The basket I also found on Pinterest  but it was too big, I had to played with the measurements to get the this size and I think is perfect. Later I found this video.  I came up with a little one that is also really cute.  The flowers are from an arrangement my husband put together from a bougainvillea flower plant after it dried, they feel like paper flowers... amazing.  Enjoy!

He has Risen

The challenge at Simon Says Monday is "lucky star", and there is no greater luck than the fact that He has Risen.  Not by luck but by love we can have eternal life.  The sketch for Retro sketches is as cute as always and perfect for my card.  Punches are my favorite and the challenge at Sisterhood.  Enjoy!

Autumn Birthday

When I saw the sketch from Mojo Monday I remembered this card I had pined from Pinterest.  Flowers is the theme from Just Us Girls and texture at Simon Wednesday challenge, so I decided to play along. One of my friend's bday is in November and this old DSP from SU is perfect for Autumn, paired with the new Botanical die is perfect.  Love these dies.  Enjoy!
