It's "anything goes" at the Paper Pl ayers challenge blog! So I will continue with my pinwheel obsession and offer my 3 pinwheel card! I love these happy little embellishments. This time I found some retired Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and made my pinwheels 2 inch squares to fit on the card. Little buttons, with a thin piece of cardstock in the center to look like thread, create a focal point and a scalloped circle punch in Melon Mambo sets them off. A strip of textured crushed curry and a sweet little sentiment popped up with a dimentional makes this card complete! Hope you are having a wonderful week! Blessings to you and thank you for stopping by!

Curtain Call and the sketch challenge at PPA! I wanted to try this little pin wheel idea and thought the colors were great for this card! I used the Hostess Level 1 DSP pack for the pinwheel using the Poppy. My trusty little "A Flower for All Seasons" stamp set gave this card the light hearted feel I was going for. I think it will make a sweet Get Well card. The rhinestone brads add that bit of "bling." Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment! I love hearing from my visitors! Have a wonderful weekend too!

This is the card I created for my neighbor's sons, aged 10 and 11 to give their mom~ I love this retired "Doodle Alphabet" set and just bought it from a sweet fellow blogger friend! You can see I just punched out the tags and stamped on them and colored in the alphabet with Pretty in Pink and Old Olive. A "Sweet Pea" felt flower and pink rhinestone brad tops off the embellishment. Adding a little ribbon to the tags makes it a bit feminine and the scallop punch created just the right touch. It says "Happy Birthday" on the inside. I rounded off the bottom edge for a soft look. As you can see, I am using my retired stamps and accessories alot~ It seems a shame to let them sit around!

The Paper Players color challenge just reminded me of blackboards and late summer apples! I am creating some cards to send to my teacher friends as they go back to school to encourage their hearts as they step into the lives of children. They do make a difference. I can tell, because I am a substitute and I so admire each teacher as I attempt to cover their classes! So this card is in honor of all teachers heading back to the classroom. It is a retired "apple" set inked up in Cherry Cobbler with a touch of Crumb Cake for the stem and leaf. The fun punch adds a flavor of classroom and I created the little ribbon by cutting out a thin strip, adding some fake stitching, not very good cuz I wanted to get this card posted~ A strip of sticky strip holds the fake ribbon on. I used the new DSP Newspaper Print and Love Letter as well. A button adds a touch of homemade love! Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings and Joy!

It is always encouraging to be acknowledged for your creativity. Thank you Always Playing With Paper for the sweet honor of being one of your picks this week!For this new challenge,Playing with Paper, which called for a "vintage" look card, I used my new Elements of Style set and Artistic Etchings sets. I am also using this card for the Stampin Royalty challenge to create your own background DSP. I created a "shabby chic" vintage look by using Pink Pirouette and black on Whisper White cardstock. You can see I used lovely pink roses for my background. I love how versatile this stamp set is going to be! With a bit of retired ribbon and a button plus the gorgeous new antique brads, I finished off this card with a bit of "pop!" ( A very thin cut of black cardstock creates the "thread" in the center of my button, a tip from the wonderful Mary Fish and her Stampin Pretty blog...see sidebar for link) Hope you are having a great week!
