Awesome butterfly card

I'm having fun playing with the new papers from the 2016 catalog.  My card uses the Stampin' Up Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP and Flirty Flamingo card stock.
I found a sketch I liked on the  Freshly Made Sketches challenge # 242 and decided to use the sketch for this card.
I cut a banner from Whisper White card stock with my paper snips.  It was stamped with a sentiment from the Grateful Bunch stamp set. The  butterfly is punched out and attached with a dimensional adhesive dot.

Here's the sketch  I used:

Shaker Card with New Colors

I hadn't made a shaker card for a long time and it was fun to revisit the techniques and make a new creation.
The Sheltering Tree is the stamp set that I used.  The new in-color card stock is Flirty Flamingo!  Inks for the leaves are Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo. I used the circle framelits collection  for the circle.
 Also, I used the Big Shot, #143263  Here are the supplies used: click on them to go to my website when you place your order.

Awesome Sprinkles of Life card

The card I made today follows a sketch I found on the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  I selected the pretty blue floral paper from Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP, (now available in the New Annual Catalog),  Daffodil Delight card stock, and the flip side of the floral paper for the other strip in the design. 

The background was stamped with Mink Macaron ink using the Work of Art stamp set.  I like how it pulls the green color up from the patterned paper.

The flowers were stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink.  After cutting out the blooms with my paper snips I popped them on the basket that was stamped with Night of Navy Ink.

I love the sweet sentiment from the Grateful Bunch stamp set.  It is layered over a strip of Mint Macaron card stock and  tucked under the basket. I'm so glad the Sprinkles of Life stamp set is still available in the current catalog.  It offers so many design possibilities!








Below is the sketch I followed for the card design.

Age doesn't count.....

The challenge for this week at The Paper Players is called Tic-Tac-Toe.   A quick look at the format shows how to play.
My card worked two ways:  down (in the far right column,) as well as diagonally from top left to bottom right.

I used the cheese stamp from the Giggle Greetings stamp set.   I also love the cute expression which adds humor to the card.

The cute verse says it all!  Age doesn't count unless.....

Giggle Greetings grad card

I'd looked at this silly dog several times, but didn't even think of a graduation card until I  read the sentiment.  It is so cute! And it works out perfectly for the Paper Players sketch challenge this week.
The hat is just a square of black card stock with a handmade tassel from white baker's twine. It was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. The inside of the card is the Teeny Tiny Wishes Happy Graduation stamped with black ink. Circles were cut with  Framelits and the Big Shot.
I think the recipient of this card will enjoy  it!

By the Tide "Hello" card

This was another day to play with my By the Tide stamp set! I decided to make a card for The Paper Players Challenge 295  using a wild animal.  Well, this is about as wild as I could find today!  I hope you enjoy it.

 I  stamped the images with VersaMark ink, then used embossing powders (black or white) and a heat tool to set them.  Little rhinestones were added for the  fish's bubbles.  Card stock is Soft Sky, Whisper White and Basic Black.
The hello is from Four You, a retired set.
