This is the 2nd challenge that Robyn from mypinkstamper.com posted to her site. This theme was to do something springy since it's so cold out! I went through my scrap paper to do this card. I used the rest of the light blue cardstock that I used for yesterdays challenge. I did this with my gypsy so I used several different carts. For the embossing I used the Stylized Flowers folder in my cuttlebug. The grass is from Gypsy Wanderings, the butterflys are from Tear Drop & the sun is from Wild Card. I used some gems that I found in all my scraps & used some stickles to add a little more sparkle. And last I used pop dots to pop it all up. Thanks for stopping by =)

This is a challenge that Robyn from mypinkstamper.com posted. It was to do something with your favorite color with black. My favorite color is blue sooo I made a card using DCWV black cardstock, the lightblue is Gemstones (got from Joann's) & the darker blue is also DCWV. I cut the flowers from the Sweet Treats cart, page 50. I cut the largest one at 2", 2 cut at 1.50" & 6 at 1". I used the clear with glitter embossing powder on the darker blue flowers & middles to give it some shine. Last but not least I used pop dots to give all the flowers some dimension. Hope you enjoyed the card, have a good day!!! (In one of the pics you can see my lazy cat laying on the cable box, lol)

This is what I was making before the Stampin Up class & finished it when I got home. There are some embellishments I want to put on it just haven't gotten them cut yet. I hope that you like all the new things that I have put up & have a great weekend!

I know I was suppose to post things way before now however things with school & life just well, that comes first! The first card (blue) is the TriFold card I made my hubby (still trying to get the hang of getting things just right with it). The 2nd card (beige & brown) is a split fold card I made for a friend.

I cut out 12 layers of the poinsettia from Winter Woodland (always want to call it Winter Wonderland). I cut the 1st at 6" in green for the leaves then I cut 11 poinsettia's using the shift key starting at 6" going down to 1" by 1/2" increments. I didn't have my cuttlebug at the time so I hand did the embossing using my Fiskar's folder (that took forever!!!). I colored in the embossed area with a red gelly roll gell pen. Then the last step was putting one layer on top of the other using pop dots in between each one for the 3D look, I layered them not right on top of each other but turned each one so that way it had a better flowered/3D look to it. I will be doing this again but this time with better quality pop dots since the ones I used aren't that great & I have a cuttlebug this time so it won't take forever to get them embossed.

I've been doing crafting & stuff for years now but have never posted anything online, & have never done this whole blog thing. So I figured with this New Year may as well try new things! I'm just getting this set up & hope to start posting things later tonight! I am making some things for a challenge that a friend has started on her site. I am sure that you probably have heard of her & watched several or all of her video's (Robyn from mypinkstamper.com). If you haven't checked out her site your missing out so go check it out!
