Celabrate Tuesday Trigger

I created this card by stamping the banners, then coloring them with a bit shading to give them more depth. Stamped a sentiment and colored those open spots to liven it up. I placed a scalloped edge on this panel then popped it up on the card base. The inspiration photo has banners but that yummy cake could not keep me from thinking about this photo.

Delight in the Day

OWH Mid Week Throwdown Challenge: Encouragement
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes
Here is a tiny bit of encouragement to just brighten the day. This sentiment is from Unity and I put it with some paper from Basic Grey Paper Cottage (My new favorite). The tea cup is a die from Nestabilities. I placed a line of bling from Hero Arts and look no twine! To make flowers more full I cut them out from from the left over bits and layered them, the larger one is pop dotted up.

Simon Says Stamp Sketch Challenge
Here is my card for this sketch. They have a card drive posted for a little girl, so I will send this one along for her and her sister. In the inside I stamped " families are forever".
The letters are die cut from my Sizzix dies Girls are Weird set. Sometimes the Cricut hates cutting really small letters, or it just takes to long to fuss with it all. I did some paper piecing and some copic coloring on the image.

Stamp It Love Card Challenge
Nothing like love! The challenge is love and stamping (I just know these connect). I used a Stampin Up punch for the heart and popped it up after stamping the image again. This would also make a great anniversary card by just changing the sentiment.

More Wag

Less is More Challenge

The inspiration theme is Less is More! This stamp came to mind because it always make me smile but now I am using it...that is a good way. I decided to stretch the dog stamp and put the sentiment in the middle then outlined/ dembossed it with a nestability. To enhance the wag I let him have a bone and made a wiggle with two small apostrophe's. I have feeling what the DH will say when he sees this card:)
