Here's a card for my 2nd challenge with my sister Joanna http://scrap-making.blogspot.com/ She chose this cute angel from OUAP, I thought about what I was going to create for a while then it dawned on me that everyone wishes they would get better soon when they are sick. Maybe someone's guardian angel will be listening when I give them this card! This was my 1st hand stiched creation with floss, I'm going to be practicing more LOL! I put Martha's cool white glitter all over ever dress (I love that lady!) I stickled the halo gold and also stickled the white parts of her leggings. The patterened paper is from that huge 360 pack from K&Company...yes 360 pages of patterened paper!!! I put some Broken China (blue) distress ink on the edges of card. angel wings and cloud also glimmer mist on the top right corner, and put 4 of the smallest buttons I had on the corners.

For this entire LO I cut everything from GW it was very cool that I was able to find I every cut I wanted on one cart! The only thing that wan't from GW was "vacation" that was from PS. I stamped the entire yellow background paper with one single stamp that I got from the dollar store. I also made the journaling tag from GW and added a flower stamp and some green ribbon to it. I got lucky and found a pack of Mexico vellum guotes for $1 at Big Lots, just in time for my Mexico Vacay scrapbook! I CB'd the family title then distressed with red ink. I put a sombero hat sticker on my son's head in the pic I was laughing so much when I did this LO!
I wanted to thank Janis over at Pause Dream Enjoy http://pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/ for her kind words of encouragement and for inviting me over to do these challeneges! Thank you Janis!
For this LO I embossed the yellow paper with CB then distress it with Walnut Stain. I cut the pineapple twice then cut the green part off and glued it on the yellow. I ran both pieces of the pineapple in my xyron sticker machine then poured Martha Stewart glitter all over it. I hand cut the black shadow for the pineapple. I cut the 5 cent stamp from Sentimentals. The title is from OA. The patterned paper is from the SWEET stack from DCWV. I added 5 prima flowers and added black rhinestones.
I had fun stamping all over this page! All colored flowers were a stamp that I cut out. The top left borders were all stamps. The small flowers at the bottom of the page were a stamp. I used blue alpha chipboard for the title. The LO is about a castle that lights up in Mexico.
The title is GS and I embossed with Cuttlebug. I stamped the entire background with an airplane stamp with the Distress Broken china ink. I also added flower ribbon and travel themed chipboard. The green tag on the top left page is a stamp. The arrows at the bottom are a stamp.
These pics were actually murals at a hotel in Mexico. For the black flowers I welded them together to make a border, it's from SB. The white flowers are from Sentimentals, title HM. I added a white ribbon to the left side of pic and also embossed the black flowers with the cuttlebug.
For this layout I cut the title from AMU, and I made a border strip from the cuttlebug....it's the blue paper embossed with flowers. I made good use with a bunch of my travel stamps. I used a border punch on the bottom border and I added colored buttons on the flowers.
This is one of my favorite pics of my son with the soccer balls. We were at a Walmart in Mexico and he was having fun with the toys. I cut the cute green car from MC and the title from Pooh Font. I embossed the car with Cuttlebug and also embossed the yellow paper with a Sizzix folder then inked it with Distress ink.
I just had to make a layout of frogs since there were frog statues everywhere in Mazatlan Mexico. I wanted to make one of each frog from each cartridge. I have to say my fav's are the girl frog and the one with the tongue hanging out! I embossed the lily pads with a Fiskars plate in the cuttlebug. I stamped the background for the title. I also put my crop-a -dile to use for the flowers.

Here is my 1st complete card, envelope and liner from WC and also my 1st Hello Kitty. I love Hello Kitty and the color pink. I was inspired to make this card from my MAC makeup Hello Kitty bag from last year. My sister Joanna and I are going to do a new challenge everyweek so let's see what we can come up with!
I had so much fun making this card especially since I was able to use a lot of my supplies, including my new Tim Holtz stamps! I cut the oval from SB and the hearts from AA, pretty simple and easy cuts which I totally blinged out!
