613 Avenue Create

Happy, Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates Easter!!  Today our challenge at 613 Avenue Create is Anything Goes with Flowers.  I used a Bugaboo image - Umbrella 3.  I had an entirely different idea in my head for this card, but it didn't work out at all.  Does that ever happen to you?  I do like how it turned out however. I wanted it to have handmade medallion flowers.  It took me forever to make some, and then I didn't care for them on the card. I tried other flowers, including ones you roll up and stamped flowers, but I didn't like any of them. Finally, I remembered these Martha Stewart flowers I got at T J Maxx this weekend.  Done!

I used my newly purchased Sizzix oval dies (thanks to a sale at Joann's).  I was tired of all my images being square or rectangular. Everything is popped up.  I lightly chalked the background of the image.  The sentiment and ink are Close to My Heart.

Stop by 613 Avenue Create to see other DT members' inspiration.  And see if you won last week! 

I'm entering the following challenges:  Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes; Joanna Sheen Challenge - Weather; Addicted to CAS - Spring.

Easter Card for my Grandson

Hi, there!  I almost forgot to post this card that I made for my Grandson for Easter.  He's getting to be a big boy, but he still loves a treat from Granny and Grandpa.  I added texture to the egg with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The ribbon is Martha Stewart and so is the bunny punch. The grass is from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cart; the sentiment is from CTMH also.  Everything is from my stash!

I'm entering this card in these challenges:  Send A Smile 4 Kids - Anything Goes, Creative Corner Challenges - Anything Goes,  Stamping Dragon Challenge - Easter, and 4 Crafty Chicks - Easter.

Have a nice day!

(Another) Masculine Birthday

Hello, friends!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card for my youngest son.  It took me a while to come up with the concept, but once I remembered I had some Tim Holtz tissue tape, it came together quickly.  Here's the CAS card, which I like a lot.  Hope my son does, too!

All supplies are from my stash - spent no extra money - isn't that cool?  I'm getting good at using what I have :)  Ink & Sentiment:  CTMH; Tim Holtz tissue tape (music notes); Cardstock:  My stash.

I'm entering these challenges:  Sweet Stampin' (Males); Cards for Men (Monochrome), and CAS on Sunday (Happy Birthday).

Anything Goes at 613 Avenue Create

Happy Sunday!  Today our challenge at 613 Avenue Create is Anything Goes with a Tic Tac Toe option.  We are pleased to have a new sponsor, Rick St. Dennis.

I decided to get a jump on Christmas cards so I used Rick's I've Been Good Image.  I chose to go straight across the middle of the Tic Tac Toe board:  Sticklers/Glitter, Digital Image and Green. Everything is from my stash.

This cute image reminds me of when my little sister and I would leave a treat for Santa. Visit 613 Avenue Create to get some inspiration from our guest designers and the DT. The ladies have made some wonderful projects.  You'll enjoy seeing them and, hopefully, have even more fun creating your own project to enter into the challenge.

I'm entering these challenges:  Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenge - Anything Goes, Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - Sparkle & Bling and Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes.
