Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your week and finding some time to create something wonderful!
Today starts a new challenge over on the Little Tangles Challenge
 
This week is all about masking! I have to admit, I have not done this technique often. But when I think of masking, I think about creating a scene with stamps. What better Neat and Tangled set, but Little Bear.

Here is my masculine card using the masking technique:

A Fun Weekend Challenge


It is one of those lazy Sundays around our household today! The boys are watching Ironman and the girls are getting their craft on!

Yesterday, Butterfly Reflection Ink released a sketch to play along with. It got my creative juices flowing today.

Here is my creation using pieces of the Pebbles From Me to You collection:


The original sketch (from the Butterfly Reflection Inks blog) for the challenge looks like this:



I decided to flip the sketch. However, I kept the main highlights the same.

It felt somewhat odd not using a single stamp, but so easy to build using the stickers and chipboard pieces.

Hope you stop by Butterfly Reflections Ink to check out their fun selection. It seems like there is always something new!!!

Supplies:
Pebbles - From You to Me Collection ( Sticker Labels,  Chips, and cardstock)
Studio Calico - Veneer Hearts

Little Tangles - Matching Envelope Challenge

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you are enjoying your week and finding some time to create something wonderful!
Today starts a new challenge over on the Little Tangles Challenge

 
I decided to keep is very CAS with this week's card.
 
I broke out the watercolors to provide a pop of color on the background. Once the paint was dry, I stamped the sentiment and voila! Love this very simple look!!!
  Along with a matching envelope!

Happy Prickley Pear Monday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I had a wonderful Spring Break and ready to get back to work! Being Monday, I have a new Prickley Pear creation to share with you. Sadly, not a festive green one to mark today's holiday!


Using Prickley Pear's Thank You Would be Suffice JJ0067 stamp:



I love the size of this sentiment. Perfect to be the focus of the card. I paired it up with fun spring colors! I love how this card turned out!

Prickley Pear has a wide variety of stamps available! Check out the store HERE!
