Christmas Tree Copy

Good morning. Beautiful, sunshiny day here in the midwest.  Feeling sad for those that are struggling with weather issues. Praying that God will protect those families that need some extra care right now and that they may receive the help they need. 
Papertrey Ink is having another release week and I am loving all the fun Christmas products they have.  Their challenge this week is to take one of the designers cards an sort of copy it. Here is my card made with Tree Trimming Trio set.
And here is Nicole's card made with the new Christmas tree set, Very Merry.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

With Sympathy

Hello and let the weekend festivities begin!
I was working off of the Sugar Peas card challenge with this photo and sketch.

I started with an A2 size white card base and stamped the first doily in a soft pink like the second story of the building. Then used a coral color for the first story and finally die cut the greeting from PTI in an evergreen to match the doors. Added a few clear Nuvo drops. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
The doily stamps I think are from Inkadinkado.

Apple for the Teacher

Hey there! Super quick Apple card here today for several challenges. I started with a white A2 card from Papertrey Ink. Stampeding with the Tag It #6 set also from PTI. Added a little Wink of Stella on the apples and stars to finish it off. 
 Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

I would also like to enter it in the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge #296 small image repeat.

Butterfly Fly Away...

Hello and happy Thursday to you!

Todays card was for several challenges. I started with Less is More colorway of royal blue and lime green.
  I did a watercolor wash with reinkers on Strathmore watercolor paper. Then punched a bunch of vellum butterflys and made a circles swirl for the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge.

And last but not least I wanted to enter this card in the AAA Cards Creatures Great and Small Challenge.

The greeting is 3 stacked die cuts glued together with Wink of Stella on them. It is really hard to see but it gave it a pretty shimmer. 
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Bitty Blessings

Hey all! Hoping your last week of August is going well. I needed a little stamp time tonight. This is a simple kraft and white baby, square card.
One of the other challenges was to add a real object. The safety pin was my real item. I stamped and heat embossed the PTI greeting. Here are the challenges I would like to enter.

The Less is More #343 use a real object challenge. Well hope the rest of your week goes smoothly.

Sail Away with Me

Weekends were made for stamping, right??
This card was a quickie with 3 different stamp sets. Bitty Blessings (PTI), Thank You for Being My Friend (Hero Arts) and a stitched set (unknown).

Greeting and sailboat are stamped in navy ink.  Waves are in Soft Sky ink and bottom of boat is colored with colored pencil. I also popped the die cut boat up with foam tape and covered with Wink of Stella. We spend quite a bit of time on the lake in the summer. Soaking in the sun for those winter months. Lol.

Summer Fun challenge.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Little Things

Good morning,  The cool mornings are starting to make it feel like fall. I have even seen a few trees with the leaves changing. All this inspired my card this morning. You all have seen those leaves that are so bright and beautiful they are hard to believe they are real.  I didn't do as good of job as God does but I tried.
Using Distress Inks on a white panel I stamped a set from SU called Lovely Leaves. I inked the leaf stamp with 3 colors then misted it with water before stamping. I also stamped one on vellum to cut out. The greeting is from Hero Arts set called Thank You for Being My Friend. I die cut the banner and stamped the sentiment in Palette black ink. Mounted this all on a A2 orange card base. The banner is popped up with foam tape.

Time Out autumn challenge.
SSS Wednesday add a sentiment challenge.
The Fusion challenge dictated my colors and layout. I also wanted to enter it in the Addicted to CAS and CAS-ual Friday's friend challenges.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
