Color combo challenge 166

Hi all, this week was a very cool color combo. This is an easel card. I love to make them. Thought the bird house was perfect for this color combo. I just added the roof to the top of a 3x3 easel card. The roof & the bird are close to my heart stamps.The leaves and branches and flourish are sizzix dies. Spellbinders were used for the bird house hole and frame also the fancy tags for the sentiment to hold the card open And of course some stickles.

Color Combo challenge # 164

Today is the first challenge I did with Designer's Challenge. It was really fun and also very challeging to follow all the guidelines. Makes you really think about the page. I used my focal point of my sweet granddaugher Bella Rose. The colors were the easy part for me since I love these colors and do well with flowers and nature. Of course I used glitter and stickles, two of my favorite things. Used close to my heart stamp sets for the words and the border on the white back. The circles and the flowers are raised with 3-M tape. Here are some close ups

Thank you card for Annette

Hi everyone, today is card class at Annette's always look forward to her class. Her blog is where I won the contest. I received a really cute Halloween stamp set called Spook Alley from Close to my Heart. You can purchase one from her website if you like the card.
The bat, border,the stars, the moon are in the stamp set along with some other great cute designs.
I wanted the card to be able to stand,so I covered all sides and inside of card. The card measures 3 x 53/4. I am going to try and remember to do the size of the card for you, since I love to know that when I go to other sites to get inspiration. I use some K&C paper from last year since it has the cute bats. Of course I used stickles on the bat's eyes, the stars and moon and all the items on the border on the inside page. The boo is a die and the thank you is from the new Thanksgiving circut cartridge. The orange spiderweb is a pull out for the note to Annette.Talk with you soon Have a great day with stamping in it. Di

Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland

Hi everyone, I have my new camera and have practiced for a while. The pictures are so much better, and I am sure will improve more with time. If anyone has any suggesting for a better picture, please leave me a comment.
At first I had a hard time cutting into this beautiful paper, but once I got started I just cut away. This was 8x8 paper so I decided to make it into a card so you can stand it up and see front and back. Here are a couple of close up for the detail and what is popped up. Also the inside
Here is a tag I made with some of the left over paper. Love it! Love it!
And a few more cards, sorry I just loved making this cards. See Ya tomorrow with a papertrey card for Halloween. Have a good one
