DCWV May Sketch Challenge

I loved using the new Chick Chat Stack with Burlap. Such a rainbow of colors and totally feminine and fun!!! I have used it many times but never with a challenge and so happy I did.  The tile and sentiment are a strip cut from one of the papers and the flower is one that I had in my stash which matched beautifully! Hope you enjoy my card. And I am also showing my orchid that is in full bloom right now.

Cricut Explore Mother's Day Card

This card was card made a few times with the new Cricut Explore Make it now project here, and DCWV papers as well as some from my stash. Some of the gold was left over from piece s not used in all my cuts from my Christmas cards! Love how that makes it easy to finish a project fast! Love the elegance of the cards and how beautiful the 3D flowers are! Used Art fine glitter on the stamen of the flowers as well. Tombow and Xyron Creative Station glue were used.
I sent my Mother In Law the top card in a package with her gift earlier in the week so that she would get it. My girlfriend will get hers in person so it doesn't get crushed in the mail.
Hope you enjoy my endeavor to "Make it Now" projects!!

Colorful Sweet Stamp Shop Card

The Sweet Stamp Shop stamp set called Color Wheel for this colorful card. I used the Clearsnap stamp pad in primary and dabbers with masking off each section to make the color spectrum. Enjoy.

DCWV April Challenge Layout

I was so thrilled with how this turned out! Loved the papers and cut out pieces! The flowers are from Prima, the green wood piece from Kaisercraft painted green with Splash of Color green acrylic. The black tulle, blue hem tape, an heart tag are from my stash. I fussy cut the lower right of the background paper was cut out and popped glued and used to tuck in the tulle and ribbon behind. Loved the affect!
DCWV Stack was Vintage Lane and the lower right stamp pieces, and banner flag were all cut from the stack as well as the dark 12x12 border, and "Italy" sheet. Hope you enjoy it.

Basic Grey Layout

I made this layout of old pictures I have wanted to get done, and because I LOVED this inspiration board, and especially the saying "This is so the Happy place" but I chose "One fine day, together".  It was really "One fine day" and chose to use this title. Chose things I had from my stash like the Basic Grey  ric rack, gold doily, button, fushia trim flowers, tissue paper, cardstock scraps, and cut the gold leaves under the flowers with a Martha Stewart fern punch. The "One fine day" from Robin's Nest, and Together is a Making Memories metal word, spray painted gold. So the gold and fushia colors are also from the inspiration board..
