TTSTV challenge 41-Patchwork borders





Happy Friday!  I am headed to the airport.....for some fun in the sun.. MUCH needed!
My cards today are for Pat's tutorial over on MFPspeedytv...tutorial time 41...patchwork borders.  I do not own dies. I made the first one and realized it wasn't a border, so I set out a second time and glued my 1" squares to dp...hoping it was thin enough to use a punch.  It was.  Head on over to mfpspeedytv to to play and you just might win the stamp set below.

Yeah!  Second day of the hop:)  Love these tulips.  I colored them with poppy parade, gumball green and a brown and paired it with Miss Caroline's Dilly Dally dp.  Then I put versa mark on it and used one coat of UTEE to achieve a rainy/wet look.  A few of the tulip were paper pieced and place on dimensionals.  I was struggling with what sentiment to put on it when my dd Bailey came down and "loved" the card and told me to NOT put a sentiment on it.  So I am calling it a day!
Have fun on the hop.

My card today also features the new set Spring Things to be featured on Wednesday. I colored up my bunny with SU! markers and used a scallop circle to help make the clouds.  3 small MS butterflies and a rhinestone on each helped to finish it off.  It is 4.25" square.  Have fun on the hop!

MFPspeedytv tutorial time challenge 40-snack toppers


Thanks to Tammylee for the fun tutorial over on TTSTV at MFPspeedytv.  A snack topper is such an awesome way to dress up some goodies...edible or not.  I am known in my neighborhood for my stovetop chocolate oatmeal cookies and made these for my dd's bff. I know she'll be tickled.  I kept it simple as she isn't a frilly gal.
Head on over to MFPspeedytv and you just might win this fun stamp set!
I used the soon to be released sets: Glad, Glads and Spring Things.
Be sure to check out the blog hop next week!

Over on the DRS Designs blog the challenge is baskets. I colored the basket in with a hazel nut tan, the daisies with daffodil delight and finished them off with some fun green stickles. A wee daffodil delight bow and the card base was embossed with the lattice ef.  I used the Daisy Basket and the one line Happy Easter greeting from DRS Designs. Head on over to the DRS Designs blog to play.

Paddy and his Shamrock Circle

My card today is continuing with DRS Designs Thursday's challenge...shamrocks.  I chose the Shamrock CirclePaddy Bear and the Happy St. Patrick's Day greeting. I stamped the shamrock circle on certainly celery and used a circle punch to cut out the center and then a large scallop punch to finish it off. I only used Paddy's head for this creation and colored him in gray, crumb cake and green. The gray layer was embossed with the lattice folder and some fun gingham ribbon to match. 
So don't forget to play in the DRS Designs Thursday challenge AND see details below for their Stamp-a-versary contest.

TTSTV Challenge #39-detachable bookmark card


My card today was made for the 39th tutorial challenge over on MFPspeedytv.  Today it is the detachable bookmark card.  A lot of fun!  With encouragement from my friend MariLynn, I chose to make the bookmark a flap on the top of the card.  I am not certain that you can see my little insert in the bottom right corner but the flap is up and it says, "That's music to my ears!" There is a perforated line so that the bookmark can be easily removed. Head on over and play and you could win this stamp set

I used MFP's a HC Just a Note and dogwood blossoms and used a tutorial challenge from the beginning of February on my blossoms-faux frosting.

DRS Designs Challenge #62-Shamrocks/clovers


Good day!  I hope this day finds everyone happy and well.  My card for you today was made for the DRS Designs Thursday challenge. Today it is all about 4 leaf clovers and shamrocks.  I love little Paddy Bear paired with the Happy St. Patrick's day greeting.  I embossed the gray layer and added some celery seam binding. Paddy was colored with blushing bride, crumb cake, celery and gumball green.  I stamped the sentiment and then stamped one of the little shamrocks again and punched it out with the tiny circle punch. Head on over to DRS Designs to play...also, they have their Stamp-a-versary game, too. To win you have to play, so go play!
