Star Student Card

Hi Everyone!  I want to show you the card I made for a few of my favorite challenges.  Here is my card.

 Here is a view of the card laying down.  If you can believe it, everything on this card was cut out of a white/cream cardstock (except the kraft paper).
 I cut the star letters from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge on my E2 machine at 1.25" out of white and colored them with Stampin Up Concord Crush marker.  The student font is from the Cursive 101 Cricut cartridge.  I used my gypsy to weld and stretch the word.  The small stars were punched with a star punch and I used Stampin Up Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait ink pads and a sponge dauber to ink them.  And I added a gem in the middle.  The sheer ribbon is 1.5".  I glued the Star letters under the ribbon and glued the student letters on top of the ribbon.  I LOVE this look!! 
 I also punched the larger stars from a punch using the white/cream cardstock .  I used the stampin up 3 colors to stamp the Peachy Keen Faces.  I chose the Snowmany Faces assortment set 3/4" size.  I also used the ink pads and sponge daubers to get the colors on the stars.
 Just look at the Peachy Keen face.  Isn't it ADORABLE!!!  The brown kraft paper is from my stash and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it looks like corkboard.
 I am sooo proud of this card !  It looks 100 times better in person!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Peachy Keen - Color inspiration
Cardz TV - Back to School
Really Resonable Ribbon - Bling and Ribbon

Mix It Up Monday - STV12MON28 - Make it a Double at StampTV

Hi everyone!!  I have been a HUGE fan of StampTV and watch the videos on youtube.  LOVE the videos!  This is my first time participating in their challenge and I am so excited!  The challenge is to Make it a Double.  Use one stamp as a focal point and a background.  You can find the challenge HERE.  Here is the card I made:

I stamped the daffodil image from the Sending Sunshine stamp set from GinaK designs once on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  This is the image that I colored with my Stampin Up Watercolor pencils and blender pens.  It was then cut and embossed with a Spellbinder Nestabililies rectangle die.  I also stamped this image several times making a border on another piece of white cardstock as my background.  This was stamped using Stampin Up YOYO Yellow ink pad.  
 I matted both pieces of white cardstock onto black cardstock and then added some black and white twine and a black button.
 The sentiment is also from the Sending Sunshine stamp set. 
I LOVE the way this card turned out and am having so much fun coloring with my pencils!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

Rainbow Card - Remember to Smile!

Hi Everyone!  I have a card I made for two of my favorite challenges - Peachy Keen Stamps and Cardz TV!! 

 I cut the rainbow and clouds from the Cricut Once Upon A Princess cartridge.  I sniped off the stars and used the rainbow as a base for my twine.  I ran the rainbow through my xyron and added the twine.  I did grab the wrong blue from my drawer.  I used the darker blue with the kraft instead of the light blue and white.   I added 3 pink buttons to the side and adhered pink twine around the card.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I usde pop dots for the clouds and rainbow.
 Look at those adorable Peachy Keen faces.  These faces are from the Princess Assortment Faces size 1".  I stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
 Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!
