Black and White Card

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
This month I have a ton of birthdays to make cards for.  And I will be making another one soon.
Today, I made a black and white card for my dear friend of mine.  
I have known her ever since I moved from Hawaii in 1997. 
She is my dearest friend and I treasure her friendship. 

Her birthday is this Saturday and I had to make her a card to celebrate her day. 

Here is my card for her.  I just love this image I got from DigiStamp Boutique.
There are 5 other digi stamps that go with this one for an Awesome price. 
Please check them out. 

I used another 5x5 size card base.  Layered with white 110 lbs. cardstock from Recollections.  The pattern paper is from Ki Paper Pad (Hampton At) called Modern Elegance.  I think I got this pad from Walmart.  I added a paper doily.  I used a Stampin Up die called Deco Labels Framelits.  I then use some lace and roses from the package I got from Divine (yep, I'm still using stuff she sent me a year ago).  I used a gray satin ribbon from my stash for the bow.  Pearl swirls from Want 2 Scrap.  I don't think you can see but I also used Wink of Stella - silver and clear on the image hair, dress, shoes and on the die cut as well.  Lastly I colored the image with my copics.  ,

I hope she like this card I made for her.  The image is spot on image of her. LOL!! 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  Please let me know what you all think. 

Have a Fabulous Day!!

CCC #17 - Just Because

Hi Guys, 
Every year summer comes and goes so fast that I'm always amazed.  This year is no different.  My kids are getting prepared for school, they are doing extremely well in swimming and Mommy will finally get a break. 
The most exciting thing for me is that I hope to craft more. 

Today, I'm here to share my card for Color Creative Challenge biweekly #17.
This week's color challenge is soft green, shabby pink, and creamy yellow
and add pearls.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here is a wonderful sponsor:  Lacy Sunshine

I chose this image from their site.  Thank you for the image. 

Now here is my card: 

For this week's challenge, I made another 5x5 card.  I colored the image with my copics (I will have the list of copics down below for you). I added pearls to the image (flowers in her hair).  I used the Recollection 110 lb. white cardstock for the base.  Layered pattern paper from Garden Party by Pebbles.  I also layered a die cut from Sizzix called Ornate Plate.  I actually cut apart the die cut to tuck behind the pattern paper.  I also added a doily behind my image from my stash.  I added some Prima Flowers (Sugar Blooms) and Want 2 Scrap pearl swirl.  In addition, I added some soft green pearls from my friend Carole.  Stamped sentiment from my Studio G stamps in Pretty in Pink from Stampin Up.  

Copic colors used:
Hair: E18, 15, 13

Another Baseball Card

Hi, again my friends, 
How are you all doing today?  I made another card today.  My hubby's birthday is coming up this Thursday and I had to make him a baseball card.  As a Boston Red Sox fan as he is it was a no brainier.
I just found a new baseball stamp from Tuesday Morning and I had to get it. 

Here is my card:

Here is a 5x5 card base from Recollection 110lb white cardstock.  I distress the edges of all the paper with Vintage Photo from Tim Holtz/Ranger.  I seem to always do this because that's what baseballs actually look like all dirty. LOL!  I used some stamps from Hampton Art Clear Stamps called Baseball.  How appropriate is that?  LOL!!  I used Stampin Up Ink called Night of Navy and Real Red.  I'm not sure if these colors have been retired but I have all the previous colors from way back.  They have changed their colors since the last time I bought from them.  I used pattern paper from Little Yellow Bicycle called Vintage Summer.  It had the blue and red that I wanted.  Then lastly added some red and blue sequins to add a little bling without the bulk from my stash. 

I hope you all like my card.  I hope to create more for you all soon.  
Have a great day.  Thanks everyone for stopping by today.

Ribbon Rose Card

Hi Everyone, 
You know when you haven't been posting for awhile and you post to post. LOL!!  
Well, today is one of those days.  I have been mojo-less for sometime and I came a across a channel on Youtube that inspired me to make these roses.  The channel is called Docrafts.  Check them out!

Here is the card I using these roses.  This could be an early xmas card because of the colors.

I used the scraps of the remaining ribbon and then added my roses.  I think it turned out really pretty.
What do you all think?

I am also trying to improve my picture taking.  Please let me know what you all think of it.

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.

A Flip Flop Birthday

Happy Sunday, My Friends, 
Today has been busy, but I had a chance to create a card for family. 
They live near the water and she loves the beach so I just got a new die and embossing folder that I had to use for her card.  

Check it out:

It's an A2 card size base.  I layered cardstock and vellum to the base.  I embossed them both with my new Spellbinder that has shells on it.  Then I cut out these flipflops from a Quickuts die - flip-flops.  I punched out flowers from my Stampin Up punch.  Added some letter stickers, glitter glue, and pearls.  

That's it.  Another simple card. 
I hope you all like it.  
Thanks for stopping by today.  

Hugs, Tereese S.

Cards with some Good friends!!

Hi Everyone, 
I had the chance to visit with Yvette (DailyScrapper) and Yvonne (Scrapbliss) yesterday. 
We chatted, snacked, and did a little bit of crafting. LOL!
You know what we all do when we get together.  Hehe!!
We had a blast as usual.  We need to do this more often Ladies!! :D

Well, here is my two cards I made while I was there. 

Here are two A2 size cards.  Very simple and I added some sequins to add some bling without the bulk.  I truly love how these cards turned out.  I will be using sequins more and more on my cards. 
The paper I used Studio G paper I got from Walmart.  I used dies from my collection.  I used a sentiment from Whimsical Designs set called Everyday Sentiments.  I'm not sure if they are available.  
The happy birthday is from a Studio G stamp I got at Michaels.  
Lastly, sequins is from the Dollar Tree and Joanns. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today. 
Please come back.  I hope to have a DIY Flip It card to share.

SMILE, today is your day}

Happy Friday!
Today, I'm here to share a simple birthday card. 
I haven't had much mojo lately and it's been frustrating. I have been shopping instead.  
I can't seem to get my craft on. LOL!!  It always happens to me. 

Here is my card:

I used my new dies from MFT called Well Worn Greetings.  This is another 5x5 card.  I just layered black card stock and pattern paper (Recollection paper pack).  Added some ribbon from my stash.  Layered the papers cut with my dies.  Popped up the oval with the Sentiment from TPC Studios called Sentiments.  I have been wanting to use some sequins to my cards and instead of buttons I thought the sequins would go well and it's flatter than buttons.  

I really like how simple it turn out and I hope you like it too.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend. 
I will be visiting some friends this week and hope to spark up some mojo with them. 
Wish me luck.  hehe!!
