I am a big fan of dragonflys and loved this card and the colors. It has sparkle shimmer paint over the color to give an added touch of life. The paper is from stampin up.
Made this card for a dear friend who went into surgery today, he is special to me and thought it would cheer him up. He lives in Montana hence the sheep..

Ok DH did not care for the first card I posted for the Stamping 411 SSC122 Challenge so I made another and rather glad I did. I used a stamp set from Stampin Up that a dear friend uses when she comes over to my house. It's one of her favorites I have to admit it's an awesome flower.
This card is made using the STAMPING 411 sketch 122 for the design on the week. This was fun coming up with reds that worked together.

I know I just showed this a few weeks back but want to put this back on the blog for the Cuttlebug challenge. I used the cuttlebug folder to get the background design.

Sketch SSC121 from Stamp 411. I love the challenge and with this one I had a strip of paper that I pulled the colors from and did water color on the stamp.
This card is for the sketch WSC102 from Fresh and Fun challenge. I had fun making this card as I have not made a long one (or hot dog fold as a friend says)

the background color is using oil crayons and then blending together and then sprayed with white webbing. I had fun coming up with this card.
Made this for our son the dear hubby said he thought too childish for a 36 year old but hay I liked the way it came out. I'm sure he will enjoy it and the gift inside will override card anyhow. LOL

I used the sketch design from saturdays i{heart}2stamp and love the way it came out. I colored the flower with blue ink and used an acrylic bead colored in alcohol ink for center , used my spellbinder die for oval, cuttlebug embossing folders for background pieces and the birds are cutout and colored with pencils.

Using the sketch from Stamping 411 I made this card.

I stamped the images on watercolor paper, colored in with inks and aqua brush used pure glitz on ornaments. On snowman used sticky powder and then transparent glitter to give some shine. The acrylic circles are covered with cranberry alcohol ink and snowflake punch was added in corner. This was mounted on SU real red and then onto SU bashful blue.
