Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #30!

I don't typically do odd shaped cards and I thank Michelle from AHSC for creating a sketch that encourages me to work "outside the box"!  I had a request for a Happy Birthday card for a sweet little girl who is turning 1!  I have been doing tons of Christmas related projects for the past several weeks so it was super fun to do something a little bit different.... The products I used to make this card are  - the Babycakes Paper Packet - Bronze Shimmer Trim - Bronze Glitter Glitz Gel - a craft paper star (from my stash) that I painted with Pearl Create-a-Shade Paint - the 1 is from Irresistibles Houndstooth Alphabet - the "Hooray" is from the Hostess Rewards - Party is On ( You can get this stamp set for FREE! ) - and  I also stamped Happy Birthday inside the card using the Heartfelt Birthday Wish Mini Stamp. Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments!  Follow the link to check out all the great artwork su

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #28!

So to keep with my current theme of "life has been a bit challenging as of late" my camera has decided to be cranky and the card that I was going to post is currently not available... But I do have a large stash of cards that I haven't posted yet that I made for some recent workshops!  As always Michelle and Darla of AHSC created a super cute sketch for us to work with and while this card doesn't follow the sketch exactly it is in a similar style. This card was created using the "Quick Cards - Bright All Night" Stamp (which can be found in the Hostess Rewards Stamp Set section of your Autumn/Winter Idea Book .)  Other materials I used were White Daisy and Twilight Cardstock , Twilight and Cranberry Ink , Cranberry Twine, Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel , a piece of scrap ribbon and a bling button from my stash. I love the Quick Card stamp sets because they are just that, quick!  To make this card,  I stamped the image and then corner rounded th
