Best Wishes Card - Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #223

Hello Crafty Friends!
I have been invited by Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to be a guest designer for their Sketch #223. I am very honored! 
Here is the Sketch Challenge #223. My card was designed from their Sketch. 

I encourage you to participate in their Sketch Challenges. They have some amazing Sketches and it's always fun to try new designs and challenge yourself! 

When I was asked to be a guest designer and saw their Sketch, I knew exactly which paper and stamps I was going to use for my card. Since it's Summer time the No Worries papers are perfect for what I had in mind.
I am sad to see these gorgeous papers and stamps retire soon!

I used the rustic wood grain paper from No Worries for the background of my card. For the clouds I used a cloud stencil. You can also create your own by cutting different size half circles and sponge them onto your paper. I used Glacier ink and a round sponge to add  color and softness to the clouds. I then stamped the palm trees in Sapphire ink using the No Worries - Scrapbooking stamp set on top of the clouds. I used a few Compliments from No Worries and added them to the bottom of the sentiment. I stamped the birds in Cashmere ink and added some sequins. I loved the White burlap ribbon on the side of the focal point. It really added a little more rustic to my card. Be sure you order your No Worries products before they are gone on August 31st!

Prickly Pear "Hi There" Card

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog today! I am so excited to share a
fun card I created for the CTMH Convention Consultant Creative Showcase that was held the end of June! This was such a fun and colorful card to create!
I will post some of the other cards and layouts that I shared at the showcase at a later time.

I love to save my scraps, especially the ones from the paper packets! You can create many beautiful projects by using up some of your leftover scraps! 
Here I used strips of paper that I had leftover. I used wider and smaller strips. Just play with these and you'll be surprised what you come up with! The possibilities are endless!
I used the water coloring paints on the cactus and small flower at the top. I had fun mixing the colors to match the paper!

Little Dreamer July Card Class

Hello All!
I am thrilled to announce my July card class! Join me locally on July 26th @ 6:30pm at my home
to create these cute cards! You will make a total of 10 cards! (Two of each design) Customers and CTMH Consultants can receive my pre-cut card kit for FREE with a $40 CTMH order on my website!
Consultants can also purchase my cutting guide and full color instructions for $7! Please email me @ if you're interested! The cutting guides will be ready in two weeks!
I used some PML cards from your paper packet to create these! Why not use them up if they're sitting in your bag! Lol

 The sunburst card is still one of my favorites! 

Here's how I made the sunburst part of my card:
First, cut a 5 x 2 3/4" piece from white cardstock or another piece that matches. But you won't really see this piece. Second, measure half way to 2 1/2" and make a small mark in the center. This will be your starting point and panel. Third, cut 1 1/2" x 4" pieces from 4 different palettes. Cut these corner to corner so they look like a triangle. Take the pointed end and glue to the center where your mark is. Mix your colors like seen on my card. Glue your papers on so that your papers are over the edge of your panel. After you have glued all of your pieces, take some scissors or a paper trimmer and trim all edges. You have now created a sunburst card! Now add the larger panel and cut a piece of matching cardstock at 5 x 3 3/4". Glue the sunburst panel to this piece and glue to your standard size card. I like to take the bottom of the panel and add stamping like the one I did above or add ribbon or shimmer trim! So fun!!
