Baby Buttons & Bows

I'm feeling guilty about not posting for 2 weeks. It's so easy to fall behind so this is my second post for today.

The paper players challenge is to make a simple baby card with buttons and bows. I don't have any buttons in my craft room. Still I wanted to play along so I created my own buttons from cardstock and punches.  Then  I  threaded the ribbon through the paper button holes.  Colored the image and ribbon with copics.   I layered some silver glimmer paper under the star border punch and added lots of little gems for extra bling.  My only regret is I wish I had gave the background some texture with an embossing folder. 

Hope you enjoy the card and all the other entries at PPA133

Stampin' Up EveryBunny & Some Challenges

Hello Out There...
I've been cleaning and trying to organize the craft 
room this last week.  I can start with a clean table top
and by the time I'm done with a card there is barely 
room on the table to even lay the card down for a pic.

I really wish I had a better system for scraps and
better discipline for using the scraps.

Well today we are playing with the Play Date Cafe and The Friday Mashup.


The Play Date Cafe color challenge is to use  Carnation, Mint and  Juniper color scheme. As soon as I saw the colors I new what stamp I was going to use but the layout... that's always the hard part for me.  I knew I didn't want it to be to plain and The Friday Mashup Challenge is to...
  1. Make a project "using your Markers (thumping,Color Spritzing,Coloring etc.)".
  2. Or Make a project with "Texture".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with "Texture using your Markers".
so it was perfect for me to use an embossing folder for some dimension.  You can visit the other entries for these challenges at the Play Date Cafe PDCC 169 and The Friday Mashup FM97  Thanks for Stopping by.

Fab Friday 11 Challenge

Hello, today we are playing with the Fab Friday 11 Sketch Challenge.

My colors are Bermuda Bay, Regal Rose and So Saffron.  I really struggled with it because it seems really plain but I don't know what to do to dress it up.  Maybe just coloring the bird would make a difference.  I don't know ... what you have done to dress it up a bit?  The bird is from InkaDinkado and the greeting is an old Stampin' Up SAB set "Love you Bunches".  I do like the stickles outline on the labels frame.  Well stop by Fab Friday to visit the other entries.

  Oh and here's the sketch below that I loosely followed.
