OWH Midweek Throw Down - Fun Folds

This week's OWH Midweek Throw Down is all about Fun Folds.  I had never heard of a Joy Fold until  I read OWH's post, and I have to say it's pretty cool!  I found this awesome tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  Here's my card:

Addicted to CAS Challenge 6

Just wanted to share a card that I made for Addicted to CAS's Challenge 6.  The code word for this challenge is candy.  Here's my candy card:

I loved the colors in my sticky notepad, so I used them for this card.  I die cut each sticky note, colored them with my Versamark pen, and used some clear glitter embossing powder to add a glossy candy-like finish to my jars.  I used a stamp from Cosmo Cricket's S'More Love for my sentiment.

OWH's Virtual Card Making Party - Challenge 5

I know I did this a little bit out of order but these are my cards for Challenge 5 of OWH's Virtual Card Making Party.  Challenge 5 is "Disappearing Act with Sketch 63."  The idea is to take one sheet of 12 x 12 paper and turn it into 6 cards using this sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

And I really did make all six cards!

OWH's Virtual Card Making Party - Challenge 6

I am having such a fun time with OWH's Virtual Card Making Party!  I am on a roll!  So it's fitting that Challenge 6 is "Things with Wheels!"

Here's my card:

I had some fun with this card.  I started with a white piece of card stock that I "water colored" with some distress ink.  Next I stamped my CTMH bicycle on the dried water colored background.  I added some color with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut only the bottom of the bicycle.

I'll be back soon with another card!

OWH's Virtual Card Making Party - Challenge 2

I'm back with my card for Challenge 2 of OWH's Virtual Card Making Party!  The second challenge is called "All Creatures Great and Small; Cards for Kids."

Here's my take on this fun challenge:

I used one of my favorite stamps, Puppy Love, a digital stamp set from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps.  I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils to look my sweet fur baby, Sugar.  

Yep, you're seeing that correctly.  She's found herself a pillow and tucked herself under the rug for a nice long nap.  She's such a silly girl!

OWH's Virtual Card Making Party - Challenge 1

Happy Sunday to you!  If you're here in the sates happy President's Day weekend!  I hope that you're enjoying your three-day weekend doing something fun.

Hubby and I just got last night from a quick trip up to Reno, Nevada and Lake Tahoe.  It was a gorgeous trip!  The weather was sunny and there was still snow up in the mountains.  Lake Tahoe is breathtaking any time of year.  Here's the view from North Shore.

Anyway, back to why I'm here!  OWH is having a Virtual Card Making Party this weekend!  There are several fun challenges up on their blog, so be sure to swing by and check it out!  The first challenge was to create a card using zig-zags (aka Chevrons).  I love chevrons so this challenge was a ton of fun!  Here's my quick little chevron card:

The paper and embellie are from American Craft's soon-to-be-released Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection!  I won this entire collection from American Craft's during their CHA previews, and I must say it is so much fun!  Thank you, American Crafts!

I'm going to be posting quite few times today to play along with OWH's Virtual Card Making Party, so don't say I didn't warn you!

CYDI? Challenge 29

Holy smokes this has been a CRAZY busy week!  I can't believe that it's Friday already!

Anyhow, I finally have a chance to sit down and collect my thoughts, so I thought I'd stop in and share the card I created for the CYDI? Challenge 29, Love is in the air.  This week's challenge is all about love.  And here's the lovely little card I created for the challenge:

I used KiniArt's Shorky image.  I just love this little girl with her cute little bandana!  I used my Prisma colors to color her.  I didn't blend the colors because I wanted her to have a "fur" texture.  I finished the card with some fun paper from American Crafts and a typed sentiment.

Well, that's all from me.  I hope that you'll find time to play along with this week's CYDI? Challenge!
