One of my granddaughters LOVES gymnastics, so I made her a spinner card for her 7th birthday.  Figured she and this adorable tumbling Party Panda would get along really well together.

It can be a challenge for me to find stamps that work for the guys in my life.  That’s why I love the Tim Holtz Blueprints stamps.  They are perfect for just that.

Here are 4 cards made with 4 different Blueprint images.

Is it Spring yet?!  Well according to the calendar it is.  Here are a couple of happy cards that are hoping the calendar is right!

One card is for a young friend’s birthday which is coming up soon.  The other one is for one of my granddaughters who likewise has a birthday soon.  Sunshine and rainbows for everyone!

On card one’s design most of the front portion of the card has been cut away.  Only the clouds remain.

The clouds are still big enough however to cover the sentiment inside.

Both cards have lots of die cutting and fun dimension.  Here’s the second card.

This is a card that I put in my gallery over at Splitcoaststampers last month.

The clouds were made by using the cloud die, cutting the clouds and then using the negative portion of the cut as a stencil when sponging.

Hope everyone is enjoying the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere!  (Hmmm… does that mean it is the first day of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere?)

This time the money is right on the front instead of hidden inside the card.

The bill is placed in a little pocket which was made by attaching it with shell shaped eyelets to the card base.

The mermaid pops up as you open the card.

Kinda thought that once DH retired that we would settle in and there would be all kinds of time to craft away the days.  But instead we have been playing and traveling and generally having a pretty good time.  I’ve missed playing in the many challenges though, so today I decided to join in on a few of them. Smiley.CatAni

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The image/sentiment panel is popped up to the same height as the yellow card “base.”  Love the interest and dimension this creates.

Already!?!  I remember when my birthday only came once a year.  Now it seems that time flies by so fast.  I’m sure that I must have at least two if not more birthdays roll around every year.  hehe

Valentine’s Day is just a week away, so today’s cards are all about love!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Card 1 is a clean and simple style.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The sentiment was slightly popped up, and the designer paper was lighted sanded for a distressed feel.

This card is also playing along in this week’s Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers: “CAS363 – Won’t you call me Sweetheart”

Card 2 uses one of my favorite techniques.. sponging.  Always love that sharp line of color that appears as the masking paper is pulled away.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Silhouetted blooms were stamped, and Stickles was added to the center.  Some of the branches were dotted with a white gel pen.  The sentiment along the side was popped up on foam tape.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Playing in a couple of challenges, too:

CASology: “Week 183: GLITTER”

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog:  “#148 Use A Love Sentiment”

I went with a white on white design for Card 3.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Have always loved this look for a wedding card.

Isn’t this a beautiful die!!  The flowers were also die cut and added to the heart with pearls on top.

Here are three cards made with a fun new set called “Acorny Thank You.”

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

This first card is a clean and simple design.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The acorn was stamped with a water base ink and then shadowed with a Copic marker.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

This acorn uses a couple of the different patterns available in the set.
Stripes + Polka-dots = Love!

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The little heart buttons in my stash were all yellow, but this orange nut needed green.  It just did.  So I took a Copic marker and colored it.  Problem solved.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Designer paper was used with the acorn punch for these hanging nuts.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Magnets were placed on the tops and bottoms of each acorn for some mix and match-ability.
