Quick Paper Players card

I had time to squeeze in a quick challenge card at lunch. I used the Paper Players sketch for this week along with stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. I also thought the card worked out nicely for Cute Card Thursday's challenge. The embossed part was done using the Numbers Collage folder from Cuttlebug.

CAS Butterfly

Have you ever started a project and then realized you don't have one of the tools you thought you did? Well, I had started a challenge card and then realized I didn't have the stamp set I thought I bought. So I had to dust of the cobwebs on the creative part of my brain to finish this card. The card I made today actually covers four challenges. I was able to use more of my Jillibean Soup patterned card stock along with one of my favorite dies from Reverse Confetti. I wanted to use the coordinating stamp for the butterfly die, but alas, it was not a purchase:-( Instead, I pulled out an old Stampin' Up background stamp, Fine Lace, and spritzed on some glimmer mist. The sketch is from Sunday Stamps with additional inspiration coming from Clean and Simple on Sunday, The Paper Players, and Simon Says Stamp challenges.

Friendly Mojo

I'm so excited about getting another challenge card finished! I usually start and then get sidetracked by housework or kids (or happily friends calls) and never finish in time. This is my Mojo Monday card for this week. I really like this sketch. I used card stock from Bazzil and Jillibean Soup. The stamped sentiment and die cuts are from Reverse Confetti.

Wow! Can't believe I haven't posted here since February! Well, here we are in April with another Reverse Confetti sketch challenge. It was a nice quiet day so I sat down and did a little creating. I made several cards for this challenge, but this is the only one I'll share with you. I wasn't so pleased with the others. I may alter them a bit in the future, but for now I'll submit this one:-)

I used card from Echo Park's "a walk in the Park". The dies were all from Reverse Confetti- Butterfly Dreams; Flowers for Mom; Hello; Sun n Clouds.

Here is their sketch if you would like to play along at Reverse Confetti.

Wanderlust Book

I'm so happy I signed up for Everything Art's Wanderlust class. I was hesitant at first because this is an international class and there are soooo many fabulous artists in the world. And I am just a wanna-be:-) I wasn't sure if I would even open one of the many beautiful colors of paint I like to buy, and never use. So, I took Katarzyna's advice and took a few minutes for myself and laid down some paint. The first weeks them was to use one word that describes myself. Here is what I came up with.

I played around with paint, stencils, and modeling paste. I still have a lot to learn. Like.. don't use glimmer mist after stamping with distress ink and be careful cleaning a palette knife with paint on it.
