Paper Craft Planet sk121909

I made this card for my cousin Leeann and her family who just moved into their brand new home yesterday. We are all so happy for them. Also I followed the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Plantet. You can find it here /www.papercraftplanet.com/forum/topics/sketch-challengedecember-19-1 There is a prize this week Tammy recently won 12 sets of mini clear stamps from Basic Grey! They're all great, but she already has so many stamps that these most likely will never get used. She is going to give them away to one random participant in the challenge. Isn't that great!!

Stamps and Smiles

I have made this card for this weeks challenge over at http://sasprojecttuesday.blogspot.com/ The challenge is to make a side step card. I must say I had a lot of problems with this one. The directions which I couldnt understand didnt help me out, so I made my own version. I had to laugh because you cant even fold it up to put in an envelope. Maybe I should go back and look more closer at the tutorial. lol Oh well here she is. The stamp is from Stamps and Smiles Digi that I got for free (thank you very much). She certainly is cute!!

The Sweet Shop SSS35

This card with a spin was made for http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/"> and was a lot of fun. I made this card for my new brother-in-law as part of his Christmas present. I used a new stamp set I got at Stampin Up called Thanks a Latte.

Aifactory Challenge #16 and Allsorts Challenge Pearls

This card is made for Aifactory Challenge #16 and Allsorts Challenge. This week we are working with the clipart set Boo Boo Fixer Doc. The challenge is: Since hospitals are so clean and sparse, we are making cards that are clean and simple! We want to see a lot of white!!!! Make sure those are 'hospital corners'! Not quite sure what Hospital Corners are but this is my take. I used
Aifactory Snowflate Digi. The materials I used are a glazing pen, glass beads (love it) and Prisma Glitter. I also added some gems for added bling. Hospitals can have bling too!! LOL

I also used tiny glass marbles on the snowflake. I just love these. I got them at Micheals. The ink stamp is also from Stampin Up and is called Ultimate Metallic Ink Pad.
