DCWV June Stack-a-holic Card Challenge

UPDATE: Just found out that my card was among the winners at DCWV! Thanks so much to DCWV for another great challenge. You can see the other winners here:

   Hello, my sweet friends! So nice of you to pop in. Today, I have a card for the June Stack-a-holic challenge at DCWV.
     I used DCWV's The Coral Couture Stack to create my card. DCWV provided a great sketch(below) to work with this month. I did not have the die to make my rings, so I made my own. Using Fiskars 1.5" circle punch and Spellbinders 1" circle die, I created 12 rings. I ran them through my Xyron sticker maker and adhered them to the front of 12 more 1.5" circles. I used foam tape to attach them to my card. I stamped the sentiment (ODBD Friendship collection), and then added pearls and other embellishments.
     Here's a close-up of the circles.
     There is still plenty of time to join in the fun. Check out the details here:


DCWV October Card Sketch Challenge

UPDATE: November 2, 2011- I'm so excited! I just found out that this card made it to the TOP-10 list at DCWV! 
     I've been working on Christmas cards this week. I made this one for the October Card Sketch Challenge at DCWV. I used The Coral Couture Stack for this card. I love using unexpected colors for my Christmas cards. While the peach with shiny, gold dots is very Christmasy, I don't see a lot of Christmas cards with coral and mint green. I created the ornaments with my Fiskars That's Amore large heart punch. These ornaments also fold flat so that I can mail the card. I heat embossed the sentiment using stamps from Fiskars Season's Greetings collection.
    There's lots of time left for this challenge, so if you have a card idea you can find all the info here:
 Here's a copy of the sketch Erin at DCWV gave us to work from this month.

     Thanks so  much for stopping in today. Your comments are so encouraging.


Cas-ual Friday Two-Circle Challenge

     I found a wonderful new blog called Cas-ual Fridays. They have challenges each week for clean-and-simple cards. This week's challenge is to make a CAS card with two circles. Here's my entry.
     This card looks more difficult and involved than it is. All the cardstock is from DCWV Coral Couture stack. The two circles were cut from a patterned sheet of cardstock from the collection. The ribbon is cut from another sheet as is the dotted-swiss card. Very quick and easy. The sentiment from Studio G is stamped in black.

Monochromatic Thinking-of-You Card

     I made this card for the Hero Arts June challenge. The gorgeous cardstock is  more of the Coral Couture stack that I won from DCWV recently. I heat-embossed and cut the die-cut flowers, flourish and sentiment using Hero Arts Thinking-of-You stamps and matching die framelits. I love the monochromatic style. I think it definitely adds an elegance to any project.
