Ombre Orange Mountains Cute Card Thursday

I love playing around with my inks. This ombre orange is just the thing to "WARM IT UP"  which is this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge.
The "Hello" is a sentiment stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop. I used a scrap piece of paper and cut out something I thought looked like mountains and then inked up from bottom to top going lighter as I went up.

Be sure to stop on by and join in this week's challenge. Living in the Southwest this card just speaks to our lovely mesas that we have here.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to make so time to create.

Gettin' a little scrappy! 
Tessa and her good friend playing chess. These girls have amazing imaginations! They're always creating fairy worlds, playing with dolls or enjoying a board game. You won't ever hear them say they're bored. 
I used some Studio Calico paper for the background and some WRMK for the strip.

A few thickers and some wood veneers and we're all done.
Hope you have a super week!

Welcome to another great challenge from Cute Card Thursday. This week's challenge, if you choose to accept it is "Cold and Frosty" . Stop by the blog and play along. There's some really great inspiration. I'm sure some of our friends and family in the Midwest United States are tired of cold and frosty but who wouldn't want to receive a card like this? :))) 
I embossed the tree image from Stamp-A-Mania in Desert Rain embossing powder. I love the glittery, frosty look it gives. 

I spritzed my kraft with icebox October Afternoon Sprinklers. The top layer was spritzed with bonnie blue Mr. Huey's. I added a few spots of iridescent glitter glue as well.

I added beads and snowflakes to finish off the card.

Hope you're having a wonderful week. TAKE CARE!

Cute Card Thursday And Everything Nice

Hello all you crafty peeps out there!
I'm excited to be paper crafting once again...

I was asked to guest over at CUTE CARD THURSDAY for the month of January. This weeks theme is
"banish the blues" so I wanted to make a special card that was cheery and sweet. I have a wonderful friend who just celebrated her birthday on the first of the year and I know she'll enjoy receiving this card.
I used Stampin' Up's "And Everything Nice" stamp set. I've owned for years and this is the first time I've ever inked it up. I love the sweet faces of the characters and the hollyhocks.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. 2014 is looking to be a year of big things for my family. Take care and craft on.
