Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I decided I wanted to use this purple glitter paper I had and then I just followed the sketch.  I stamped the sentiment from Marquee Messages onto the circle and colored it in.  I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch and some thick bakers twine for the balloon.  I used a very thin line of glue under the twine so it wouldn't fall off the edge of the card.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Green

It is our Crazy 4 Challenges hostess Barbara Anders' birthday month and the gem stone for May is emerald.  So the team is using some shade of green on our cards today.
I fancified (a made up term by yours truly) a pre-made card by adding a little bit of the necessary color of emerald to this card.  I used a ruler and Glorious Green Stampin' Write Marker to add a border and trace over the "Thank you".  For an extra touch, I fancified the envelope too!
Happy Stampin',

Paper Pros Challenge

It's time for Karen Burniston's Paper Pros Challenge.  The team is focusing on our "Favorite things".  One of my favorite dies is the Lorna Label because it is so versatile.  I chose to make a masculine card......well because we all need one now and then right?
Surprisingly the only die I did use for this card is the Lorna Label!  I heat embossed Stampin' Up!'s Suite Sentiments onto a label, added some washi tape and viola.
For the inside, I heat embossed a few sentiments from Bring on the Cake and Endless Birthday Wishes.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Thank You

Today is National Nurses Day!  The Crazy 4 Challenges team is forever grateful to all the wonderful nurses.  Our cards today are a thank you card for all those special people.
This card came together quickly with just a few supplies - and several of them were gifted to me 😃.  I used some Elizabeth Craft Designs' dies called Thank You and Stitched Rectangles to create a simple card front.  I added some Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine and a button - easy.
I kept the inside simple by adding a Stitched Rectangle die cut in the same bright lime green color.  There's lots of room to write my thanks to the recipient. 
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Music

The Crazy 4 Challenges theme for today is music.  I found this piece of patterned paper in my stash - lucky for me as I don't have any music themed stamps.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Banners Framelits to stamp the sentiment from Delightful Dozen.  I used multiple colors of Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the stamp.
I used markers again to ink up the sentiment from Suite Sentiments.
Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges - Tea Day

The other day was Tea Day so the Crazy 4 Challenges team are celebrating with coffee or tea themed cards.  I chose to use Karen Burniston's Cup Pop Stand along with Paris Edges and Labels & Circles.  I stamped the sentiment from Coffee & Tea Clear Stamps onto the stitched circle.  I die cut two cups and cut out the center so the solid card stock would show.  I added a few Glitter Lines....I mean who doesn't like glitter right?
I used the pop stand portion on the inside of my card and added another cup.  I used Paris Edges to create the white panels.  I hand cut around the little rectangle tabs so I could attach the cups.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I thought the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Vertical Greetings was perfect for this sketch.  I stamped the potted trees using Stampin' Write Markers to get the multiple colors.  For the sentiment (Suite Sentiments), I used black, Dapper Denim, and Pacific Point Classic Ink.  
The card base and the glitter paper was gifted to me - thanks very much Carol.  Oh how I love glitter paper 😍.  I am also noticing that my rectangles are crooked....oops.

Happy Stampin',
