Happy Birthday for my Sweet Sisters

I have two sisters having a Birthday. They are only about one month apart. I saw the Papertrey Ink Challenge today and thought why not use this challenge for my two card. They want you to use at least three letter from the alphabet using your first or last name. Then you were to follow the chart below.







Paper-Crafting-Alphabet-web






1. Create a new project using the Paper Crafting Alphabet and letters from your first or last name. 
2. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product.  
So I decided to use the first three letters in my Last name which is Patten
P - use pink some where in your project.
A - add a border
T - tie on some twine
I used two Papertrey products.
Petite Places Church Die
Stamp Set Green Thumb form 2007
Spellbinders Pierced Squares
Ek Sucess  Scallop Diamond Border Punch
Lawn Fawn Stamp Scripty Sayings
Tim Holtz Distressed Inks
Various Patterned Papers, Cardstock and Watercolor Paper
Sequins
I reversed my papers on my cards so they would be slightly different. Really had a fun time making this card and doing the challenge. Hope you enjoy my creation. 
Though our three houses may be miles a part. We are always close at heart.
So a big shout out goes to the best Sisters ever!
Happy Birthday
Nancy and Judi
Love Ya,

Peace On Earth
 




My last and fourth card for today is another one that I created for this month's Paper Smooches Challenge. The challenge is to incorporate gold somewhere on the card. I love my new stamp set A Blessed Christmas. Their are so many possibilities with this set. I used the Cityscapes 1 to go along with my card.





First I die cut a wonky stitches rectangle from Avery Elle out water color paper. This gives some texture to the card. I sponged in my colors and stamped gold stars. Cut a cityscapes 1 out of turquoises card stock and added gold windows. Then I cut a hill die out of Kraft card stock stamped the wise men and the peace on earth. Used narrow gold ribbon, bakers twine and gold sequins.


Hope you have enjoyed my series of 4 Christmas card using A Blessed Christmas. I really love to create and I had so much fun with this set.

Joy To the World







My third card for today is another one that I created for this month's Paper Smooches Challenge. The challenge is to incorporate gold somewhere on the card.  I had so much fun using my new stamp set A blessed Christmas. Their are so many possibilities with this set.  They also have matching dies to this set. 



To start with I used the middle piece left over from my shaker card. I die cut the heart in the middle. on white paper I stamped the heart image and colored it with Copic markers.  Inked my card base in gold, tied a gold ribbon and added sequins with pink stars. This card was the easiest and fastest to put together.


I sure am loving the fun colors. Hope you are to. See you in my last post for this card challenge.

Joy To the World






My second card for today is another one that I created for this month's Paper Smooches Challenge. The challenge is to incorporate gold somewhere on the card. I recently bought this really fun paper pack that had gold on it. The colors were so perfect for my card. Why not make a shaker card I thought. I had so much fun using my new stamp set A blessed Christmas. Their are so many possibilities with this set.  They also have matching dies to this set.  Also used the Cityscapes 1 in this set





I sponged my background and stamped the stars in gold. Then die cut my black cityscapes 1 and added gold windows.  Used my hill die and cut that out of Kraft card stock and stamped Joy to the World. Stamped and die cut my Angel. Colored her in with Copic markers and put Wink of Stella on the wings and hair. I took my wonky stitches dies from Avery Elle and die cut my frame. Took a transparency sheet and cut that for the window. Added two layers of foam to the back of my frame. Inside I have added gold and magenta sequins,white glitter and tiny gold stars. Added the  Angel to the out side and used three magenta sequins.


I had so much fun creating this card. See you at my next post.

O Holy Night






My first card for today is one that I created for this month's Paper Smooches Challenge. The challenge is to incorporate gold somewhere on the card. Gold is such a fun touch on Christmas cards so why not play along. I have created three other cards for this challenge but they will be in separate posts. I had so much fun using my new stamp set A blessed Christmas. Their are so many possibilities with this set.  They also have matching dies to this set. 


I stamped the city on white card stock. Then sponged my inks around my image. Stamped my heart image and cut it out with the matching heart die. Colored my images in with Copic markers.  I added gold and magenta sequins  along with narrow gold ribbon and bakers twine. To top it off I used my clear Wink of Stella on the heart image. It add just a little more touch of gold.



Well Ill be back with more cards. Thanks for taking a look at my creations.

Avery Elle Holiday Tag - 25 Days of Christmas Tags








I'm playing along  at the very last minute with Avery Elle's AEIHeartU Challenge #30: Holiday Tag, and part of Tracey's McNeely's 5th Annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! I love the new  Snow Much Fun and wanted to play along with that set.  Been wanting to play along all month but that how my month went. Could not see to find the time.




I used the smaller Wonky Stitches dies  I stamped the sentiment on the tiny tag from that set. The snow hill was made from Simon Says Stamp hill die. Then I used the banner from the Wonky Stitches die set and stamped the second saying. The stamp set was the new Avery Elle Snow Much Fun. I loved doing the fun paper piecing.




Well I hope you enjoyed seeing my tag I really had a fun time making it. Have a Sweet Thanksgiving!

Think Pink

Well, many of you may have noticed that I redesigned my blog. I had a fun time doing the new makeover. I created this new blog banner. Sometimes we just need a change. Lately I have been using a lot of stamps for my cards. I have lots of new cards that need to be posted.  I hope you enjoy my card for today using  Avery Elle Stamps


Today I am playing along with the AEI Heart U Challenge. The challenge is to use Pink. I really had a fun time with this challenge. As many of you know, I sell Paparazzi Jewelry and our color is Pink so it is a color I have been using lot of lately.


I bought this adorable  Avery Elle Tea Time Stamp Set and Dies  a few months back and have been wanting to use them. This was my first time inking them up. I had so much fun paper piecing this set. For the background I used watercolor paper and distressed ink, added half of a cut out doily that I inked up with the distressed ink. The polka dot ribbon in my collection and it was just perfect for this card.

If you like doing Pink cards, then you will want to join me in this fun challenge. Head over at the  AEI Heart U Challenge and don't forget to Think Pink.


Until next time Have a SWEET Day!
