You're Brilliant! MCT Designer Challenge

Today I'm sharing a set of 4 3x3 cards that were inspired over at My Creative Time.  Miss Glora is this week's designer. 
When I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  And although they're not "critters" these little graduation cards are going to the little critters in my life. LOL  A few of my nephews are graduating from kindergarten and grade school.  I want to send them something to tell them to keep up the great work.  And these little cards are perfect.
The light bulb is from MCT "You're Brilliant" stamp and die set.  The graduation cap is from my stash and used silver embossing so the cap would stand out against the black card stock.  And of course, the sentiment You're Brilliant

Happy Mother's Day :: PKS Challenge Just Cards 13::19

Happy Mom's Day to all of my blogging & crafty friends.  This week got away from me, I can't believe how fast it went.  Here's my second MD card inspired from this week's challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps.   Just cards, how easy is that....and for Mother's or Grandmother's.

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-19 :: Just cards :: Mother/Grandmother

For my card I used the flowers and sentiment from PKS SOTM April 2013 set.  I colored in the flowers with Prisma Colored Pencils.

Super simple and bright...You Light Up My Life    added a little sheer ribbon and bow and viola!

Mother's Day Card - PKS Connection Challenge

Today's Mother's Day Card is inspired from over at the Peachy Keen Connection May Challenge #1 - FLOWERS    

For my 5x7 card I used stamps from the PKS SOTM April 2013 set.   I wanted to do something different with the jar (and if there is someone out there who's already done this I apologize if I haven't seen it).  I first stamped the jar on plain white card stock in black ink.  Then I stamped it again on translucent paper in silver ink.  I cut out the little opening on the translucent paper so that my flower stems could fit through.  Once the stems were place inside the opening I used a glue pen and glued around the white card stock edges only and adhered the translucentt paper, matching up the lines.

The daisy stems are Rick Rack ribbon - my great inspiring friend Cassandra did this and it looked fantastic, I just had to try it.  I paper pieced the center of the daisies and pop dotted them. I wrapped some hemp twine laced with silver around the jar and tied a matching heart button to the jar.  I neglected to take a picture of the inside, I simply stamped Happy Mother's Day from a stamp from my stash.

Well, that's one of two Mother's Day cards.  Not sure what I'm going to do for my second card.  But I better get started.  Mom's Day is just around the corner.  If you'd like to enter your project in the PKS Connection Challenge for your chance to win $25 Gift Certificate, click HERE for more info.
Have a great week everyone. --C

Mother's Day Gift Card Holder - PKS Challenge 13::18

First I have to tell you, I made TOP 3 over at PKS for last week's sketch HERE to see my entry that made Top 3. It was very exciting!!! 
This week.... It's all about Mom week! At least for me that is.  My first Mom project was inspired by  the Peachy Keen Challenge 13::18 3D Objects : Flowers.  

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-18 :: 3-D Objects :: Flowers
Create the 3-Dimensional project of your choice using flowers.

I've made a gift card holder - hope this classifies as 3D - The back ground is glittered card stock, and cut with MCT Gift Card Holder die.  I stamped I Love You! from PKS SOTM January 2013 Set.  I used small half pearls to take up space on the sides of the sentiment.

The Stitched Daisies are cut from MCT Stitched Daisy Die and cut on the paper pack by Teresa Collins Tell Your Story.  I made two cuts for each daisy and off set them for dimension. I used pop dots to add some depth...after all this is a 3D challenge so why not. 

In the middle of each daisy I added a face from the PKS SOTM April 2013 Set.  Added a little chalk to the cheeks and viola!  A Cutie-Patootie Gift Card Holder for Mom.

Stay tuned for more Mom's Week!  --C
