For Bonnie - Our Queen of the Day!

Queen of the Day is one of my favorite challenges over at Splitcoast. This week Bonnie is our Queen and here's a link to her beautiful gallery of cards.

I had the hardest time picking a card to cas, after many minutes I finally picked this one to case:

And here is my take on it:

I tried so hard to use papers for this card but I just couldn't get things to co-ordinate. So I used Honeyomb Flair from Close to My Heart. Also love love love the hollycock zipper ribbon. The other stamps used are from Unity Stamps.

Here's a peek at the inside of the card:

Just finished up a snow angel page for my daughters albumn. Had some left over scraps on my table and thought I would take a peek over at Merry Monday and see if I could create a card with the scraps. Here's the sketch given to us:

And here's the card I created:

Supplies: Close to my heart retired Aspen paper and stickers. Scallop Spellbinder shape, blue brads.
Tip: To make the banner I use my 1 3/8" square punch at an angle.

Buzzing with good wishes CC421

This card was created for the color challenge over at Splitcoast. The color challenge is Basic Black, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze. I had paper colors but only black ink. I thought about doing a siloutte card by cutting out an image on the cricut. But as I went to set up the machine I noticed the honeycomb embossing folder laying there waiting for some love. So I switched gears and created this card for my mom.

Stamps: Quick Cards - Bumble Bee A1135
Paper: Calyps Coral, Baja Breeze, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Natural Trim, Coral Bakers Twine Honey Comb Embossing Folder

First Card using Secret Garden stamp/framelits

I can't believe this is my first card using these stamp set and matching framelits. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it in the spring mini. March was such a crazy month in our personal life that I didn't have much crafting time. Mother's Day is coming pretty quickly (I need some mailing time as well) So this morning while daughter watches Oasis and son is sleeping I decided to pull out the set and look on Splitcoast for some inspiration. I found this card and decided to case it. One day I will find my mojo and create again but for now I case. If you love this card as much as I did please leave some love for patstamps2001.

Supplies: Kraft, Yellow, Teal papers from scrap bin. Lagoon Ink used on sentiment, sponging, and flowers. Secret Garden Stamp and Framelits, Finishing Touches Edgelits, Burlap Ribbon and Bottons.
