It’s chihuahua time again!  The challenges are 1. green tan and white for Play Date Cafe and   2. use a square(picture) oval(ish?cuttlebug frame) and circles (in the top left corner) for Stampin’B’s.   I know I took some artistic license  but it feels OK and I get to show off  my eldest chihuahua Sisi cute huh?

Bunny and chicks

Its Saturday morning and its time for my Penny Black Challenge card… another Easter card and today i chose a rabbit and chicks and water colored it instead of chalk. Cut the background with the spellbinder nesties added then embossed cuttlebug dots to the blue background, added a purple strip to bring out the colors in the basket.  the sentiment is Stampin up, cute huh?  Commenter Heidi suggested I enter this in the ABC DT challenge so I did that too!

How perfect a One Layer Wonder challenge to use pink and green and a new(actually never been inked) stamp.  I really love pink and green together,  and I buy lots more stamps than I use so here it is!   I love this stamp but is is titled blackberries and it should be raspberries(my favorite fruit), so i colored it pink and it does look more black than raz…… oh well.. (i have a Stampin’ up raspberry but Ive used it.)so Marks finest paper stamps the image and the sentiment  wins and  we can pretend its raspberries can’t we?

Easter Message

Just one more- for Less is More. the theme is the sentiment.   I cuttlebuged the frame then stamped the stampin up sentiment in the middle  put chalk on the embossing, then added dots.  Maybe less is less.








one of the comments suggested I didn’t need the color on the embossing…  and since i really like all white cards I thought I’d re do it without the extra color… and i do like it better., thanks Mandi.

Waterlilies and frogs

it’s a bright Saturday  morning and here I am making frog cards, how strange, and  I worked this frog  for 4  challenges Marks Finest Papers resist, Penny Black flowers- although you can’t see it I know water lilies have flowers, Stampin B’s blue and green and Play Date Cafe blue, blue and green.  The frog and daughter  image is from Penny Black and the ‘flower ‘stamp for the resist is from Marks Finest Papers pond set.  I stamped the frogs chalked the images and framed them with a nestie cut/emboss, then cuttl bugged the lime paper with a swirl design and then embossed white water lilies on glossy paper then bayered it in blue- put them all together and added a ribbon between the resist and embossed background layer.
