2nd BoBunny page

This layout is the second page to this one that I showed earlier.  I am also entering this one in the BoBunny layout challenge to use stitching and stamping.  Paper, sticker and noteworthy paper is BoBunny Vikki B. and stamps are Unity.


Some challenge fun on Saturday!

This card was based on a sketch at clean and simple stamping challenge blog. I used the last of my fun House of 3 paper and this fun butterfly from my Unity Kit of the Month.

This project is a gift for my daughter's cooperating teacher this semester. She really liked her a lot and learned a lot from her. She will be putting nail polish in the box along with gift cards in each of the tabs. This project is being entered in the challenge at Card Creations & More by C for anything but a card. (although I did make a matching card to go with my box!) And also the challenge at Stamping Vacation to use patterned paper with large flowers!

This last card is for a challenge at Less is More to make a CAS thank you card.  I love how this one turned out :)

The Lord bless you

Happy Friends with Flair Friday!! This card was made for Michaella's teacher who was just diagnosed with cancer.  I used my new Pink Paislee 6x6 paper, some pretty velvet and lace trims.  The verse stamp in from the Unity Faith set, and the butterfly stamp is from the Unity with sympathy set. Hope she likes it.  This card was also created for the Simon Says Stamp challenge "anything goes". Have a great weekend.

Hippity Hop Monday!!

For my project today I used lot's of Unity and Ippity stamps! I made gift card holders for my daughters for Easter (at 22 and 16 baskets just aren't all that anymore LOL) . I used the adorable bird from the new April KOTM for the cover (and I will be entering this in the Unity Challenge).  Also I decorated the inside of my card and I will be entering the My Unity Place challenge.  I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and I wish I could have gotten better pictures.  The paper I used through out is LilyBee and I love it!! I used some shimmerz spray, lots of inking and some fun twine to add extra touches!! I ended up putting 5 gift cards in them - one on each side of the insert tags except the last one because I didn't decorate the back of the card.  This fit inside a 4 x 6 envelope.  Ippity sets used are Now and Always and Devoted. (I actually used even more Ippity sets on the other gift card holder but I have not gotten pictures of it yet.)

Scrapbook Challenges!

This layout is using The Outlawz scrapbook sketch.  I also followed the BoBunny challenge to use stitching and stamping on my layout.  Before I stitched on the layout I made light pencil lines (which was super easy with the fun grid on this BoBunny Vikki B. paper. The stitching was done with my sewing machine.  The stamp I used is from Unity - it is one of the Bella Doily stamps.  I used a Spellbinders Die to cut the shape around the stamp - (which looks like it was made for that stamp - love when that happens!!)  I used the transparency from the noteworthy book in the corner to layer over the paper and cut lots of flowers from the same Vikki B line - the small stickers were also from that line.  This picture was taken the day before Michaella's birthday when we celebrated here at home.  On her actual birthday Derek made her a nice dinner and PROPOSED!!!

Challenge Card

This card is for several challenges: I used Unity stamps from the March KOTM; spellbinders die; cuttlebug embossing folder; may arts ribbon; bobunny butterfly charm; pti cardstock; and printed paper that I can't remember. Oh and I used my ABS copic airbrush to add color to the outer edge of the butterfly frame.  I think this tool will be a lot of fun when I really get the hang of it!!

The challenges I am entering are:

Paper Sundaes: Texture
Let's Ink it Up - Stitching
Pile it On - Use a Rubber Stamp
Cupcake Inspirations - Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the intricate butterfly and all the flowers!)
Card Cupids Blog - pastels
By the Cute and Girly - cute and girly

And that is definitely a record for me and a lot harder than I would have thought!!  But WAY FUN!! and I totally love this card!!! I am having so much fun with challenges!! I have more I want to play this week so check back!!
