Crazy 4 Challenges - Summer vacation

It's that time of year and kids and teachers all over are rejoicing that school is almost out for the Summer.  The Crazy 4 Challenges team has a Summer vacation theme this week.
I kept the front simple with bold Designer Series Paper (retired) and a stamp from Stampin' Up! called Suite Sentiments.  I just love the bold, bright colors in this paper.
For the inside, I used Karen Burniston's Adirondack Pop Up along with a pillow made from Stitched Rectangles.  I used the smallest rectangle and then die cut it again to make it a square.  I made a slip cover for the chair by die cutting the Adirondack again, cutting the chair out, and placed it over the existing chair.  Let's not forget those glitter lines and the bold paper to tie it all in.
Happy Stampin',

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!

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
