Here in Georgia, it really feels like Spring.  Cheyenne, my co-designer of this card, and I thought SU! stamp set Up, Up, & Away was the perfect stamp set to complete the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge (PCCCS137).

I missed last week’s card challenge by 5 hours, because I didn’t check the submission time. I have now made an Excel spreadsheet with submission times so I can easily check my spreadsheet and submit card challenges on time.

Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge PPA245 is below:

I made a KISS (Keep It Short and Simple) card for PPA245: Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.  It took me less than
30 minutes. This included taking the picture, uploading the picture, posting on my blog, and submitting to Pals Paper Arts website. I think this card would be a really great card for a make-n-take class.

This was February’s Technique Card Class. This class was canceled twice due to inclement weather.

Discontinued Supplies: I used a 1/4″ scallop punch from one of the retired itty bitty punch packs for the center part of the flower. A 1/4″ circle would work in place of this punch.  When, I made the sample cards, my Birthday Bash paper had not arrived. On the actual projects Birthday Bash will be used.

I am really on a roll. I received an update from http://livelovecards.com and went to explore what was new and came across the March card challenge using a stencil. My first thought was making a gingham type background using the stripe stencil from Stampin’ UP! I placed it on the diagonal and sponged using Wild Wasabi and Old Olive inks. I tapered the amount of ink on one side of the card as a highlight effect.

The next step was going through my framelits to determine what type of mat I wanted; then, on to finding the right stamp set. I was inspired by a couple of bird nests on our front porch, and it is really warm here in Georgia, and Spring is right around the corner, and. . . . . .  So, I chose Nature Walk utilizing the bird with its nest popping off the page.

Here is the challenge card I made for Live-Love-Cards:

This is my FIRST Card Challenge. I found this website http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com and decided to make this my first ever card challenge entry. Here is the challenge:

FusionChallengeMarch24

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took the color challenge and combined it with the sketch challenge to make a fusion of both challenges. One of the cards in my March make-n-take class used a technique where watercolor paper was spritzed with water and the Painted Petals stamps were stamped onto the wet cardstock creating a slight watercolor effect. Without further ado, here is my challenge.

This month’s technique card is the Window Blinds card. It is a quick and simple WOW card.

The ribbon that is pulled (ends were cropped out of the picture) to raise the blinds to reveal a delightful outdoor garden is located at the top of the blinds.

I know we said a sad farewell to the Blendabilities, but many of us have a set or two and will continue to use them. I had a left over scrap piece of cardstock which had been embossed with the Manhattan Floral embossing folder (so sad to say it is retired) and I decided to play around with my Blendabilities markers. I used the Cherry Cobbler (two lightest markers) and the Daffodil Delight (two lightest markers) and started blending. I added a touch of blue to the floral background with Bashful Blue re-inker and an Aqua Painter. The final touch was taking the color lifter and going along the edge of the embossed areas to pull off some ink and add highlights to the flowers to make the POP.
