For this wedding card I used my Cricut with Sweethearts cartridge to cut the wedding cake and cake plate. I used glitter to decorate the icing and the Cuddlebug Swirls embossing folder to texturize the aqua cardstock. Under the aqua cardstock I mounted a piece of velum that is embossed with the Cuddlebug Swiss Dots folder. Inside I added a velum insert for my stamped sentiment. Stamped images are from Inkadinkadoo's Wedding set. Aqua ribbon from Hobby Lobby finishes it all off.
I made this tri-fold card for a challenge. I used my Cricut to cut the wedding cake and cake plate. I decorated the cake with Martha Stewart border stickers and flowers cut from a wedding flower pick. I used the Cuddlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and a Martha Stewart edge punch to deocrate the light aqua cardstock. I made space inside for cash, a check, savings bond or gift card. The congratulations stamp is from Inkadinkadoo's Wedding set. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Here's some Saint Patrick's Day cards I made for several challenges. I didn't have any stamps specifically for St. Pat's Day, so I used 2 small hearts from 2 different Hero Arts sets and made my own shamrocks. For the two toned shamrock, I stamped the lighter green hearts first and then went over it with the smaller heart in dark green. I added stems and doodles with black Pigma Micron pen and also used a Inkssentials White Opaque pen to add highlights. On the last card I added small pearl stickers to the Shamrocks. I hope these cards will bring luck to their recipients!
Here's a happy card I made for a couple of challenges. The stamps are from Unity, which I colored in with Copic markers. The 3-D flowers are from Prima and started off white with teal polka dots. I colored the flower with two different yellow Copic markers and when they dried I went over the polka dots with a black Pigma pen, now they match my color scheme! For the flower centers I used black rhinestone stickers.

I love to enter the challenges over at www.stamptv.ning.com , the people on the blog are so friendly and creative. Participating in challenges gets me thinking outside the box and trying new techniques, which is so fun! I used Unity and Inkadinkadoo Stamps for my cards.
Here's a new card I made for the latest Paper Maniac Sketch Challenge. The stamps are Hero Arts, cardstock is from Archiver's and the glitter cardstock is K & Company. I added a little pink rick-rack as my trim and colored the images with Copic markers.
