True Blue challenge

Good morning my friends,

There is a challenge today at the Flower Soft blog – use the Mabel Lucie Attwell Kit to make a blue colored card. You know before I started on the Flower Soft design team, I didn’t even know Flower Soft made anything else beyond those little amazing sprinkles that is so easy to apply and adds instant texture to your card. Well, I discovered the card kits and card toppers too and I wonder why I have never used it! It makes card making so easy and all I need to do is just assemble my card and decorate it!

Well, here is my blue card using the kit! Well, you can use the kit as is or step it up and use it in many other fun and creative ways.

I, of course, have to take the hard way – what’s wrong with me! But this little angel from the kit is so fun and darn adorable I had to add a little aeroplane just for the fun of it!

Go check it out – there are tons more fun and adorable images to use in the kits!


Clean and simple here I come …

Good morning everyone!

Welcome to this week’s challenge at The Pixie Cottage. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this week’s theme – I know I gravitate to CAS cards because they are right up my alley.

As always, we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with. This week theme is to make a clean and simple card and/or use the sketch below:

I used both the sketch and the theme to create my card this week:

I used Tim Holtz Valentine’s Day set with Versamark watermark ink pad to create the heart background. The adorable and trendy latte mug and sentiment is from The Pixie Cottage – it is part of a larger mug set that you can get from Michelle’s Scrapbooking and More. I popped up the mug and added some twine to create some dimension and interest.

This is an easy challenge, I think. I would love to see your white space! You could win 2 Pixie Cottage stamps of your choice.
