Anything Goes at The Ton



Happy Wednesday! 
Today's card share is not a happy one, it's for a friend who lost her brother and friend. I haven't lost a sibling so I can't say I know how it feels and this is not the first sibling she has lost, my heart breaks for her.
To make this card I started with a top folding white card base and a panel cut down with a stitched die. The stamp set I used is  Wildflower Banner by The Ton and colored I with Copic markers. I tried to keep the colors subtle instead of bright because of the occasion I am sending it for. 



I am entering this one in the April challenge of Anything Goes at



I am also entering it in the Seasons challenge at

Hello Spring


It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More and our challenge this week is Clean & Simple.


For my card I used a top folding white card base and a scrap piece of Bristol paper for the image. I stamped the wreath image from the Wreath of Roses stamp by Lil' Inkers Designs twice, the first one I die cut with the Wreath of Roses die and colored it with Copic markers, the second one I colored the flowers and fussy cut them out and placed them over the existing ones to give it more dimension, this is the paper toile technique. I cut the "hello" out of gold foil paper and added it to the center. To finish the card I used the Silly Stitched die also by Lil Inkers Designs for the border and added gold leaf to the stems.






Hello Lovely



I am back with another card using more Concord & 9th products. 
For this one I started with a top folding card base and the Floral Fill-in paper by Concord & 9th along with the Flora Fill-in stencils. This paper and stencils are so easy to use, the paper is printed with blank spaces for the flowers and  all you do is line it up and then sponge color into the open space.
Fir the greeting I used the "hello" from the Flourish set and the "lovely" is from the Hello Lovely set. 
I used the hello from the Flourish set because it was smaller than the one in the Hello Lovely set. 

I am entering this one in a couple challenges

CAS(E) This Sketch 


and the Fusion challenge, which the sketch is very similar.

Beautiful Inside & Out





Back to my norm with a late night card share, I made this one for a friend with a birthday coming up and also for the Curtain Call challenge and then realized that the challenge is not just florals it's tulips, oh well I am entering it anyways.
To make this card I started with a white top folding card base and some speciality Floral Fill-In paper from Concord & 9th. The paper has coordinating Floral Fill-In stencils that go along with it. All you do is lay the stencil over the space where the flower should be and sponge away. To finish my card I added the Beautiful die and the greeting from the Beautiful You Bundle

I am also entering it in CAS on Sundays challenge to use a stencil.

Hugs




I am up on the Concord & 9th blog with my second post as an April guest designer. I am loving these products especially the Triangle Turnabout stamp (that is now back in stock!) that I used as a background on the card below. I started with a side folding white card base. On this card I rotated the stamp 3 times instead of 4. The first one I used versa mark ink and embossed it with Brutus Monroe Gilded embossing powder, the second turn I stamped it in Altenew Frosty Pink and the third was stamped with Altenew Grapevine. I used the Hugs from the Cuddles & Hugs Dies and cut it out of gold glimmer paper and Blushing Bride card stock. I used a stitched die by Mama Elephant to cut down the background panel.




Because I had leftovers from the hugs die, I was able to create the card below in like record time. I used a white top folding card base and the other pieces of the "hugs" from the card above. I added some embossed hearts in gold and a greeting form the Cuddles & Hugs stamp set. 




Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

My Sweet Petunia & Sugar Pea Designs Collaboration Bloghop



My Sweet Petunia is teaming up again, this time with Wendy and her team at SugarPea Designs. You should have come here via Vera's blog and she is so talented! 


They have some super cute sets at SugarPea designs, for my card I chose Chunky Monkey because the monkeys are the cutest.  I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I sat the image in Memento ink and the masked it so I could do the background.  I used the new distress oxide inks for my background and added some water droplets to give it texture. Next I removed the masks and colored the image with Copic markers. 





Using the MISTI I was able to stamp the greeting on the card I had almost completed.  Next I cut it out using the Sunshine layers die by WPlus9. To make sure it was straight i used the Creative Corners.

There are giveaways associated with this hop, so be sure to leave a comment on all the participants in order for a chance to win.
 I have a full list below in case you get lost along the way.
