Make Up Tuesday

Good morning everyone....I have a few cards that I made this last weekend that I haven't had a chance to upload. It seems that the weekend just flew by...we had to spend most of Saturday at a funeral and Sunday was spent getting Valentines ready to deliver today. I have to work tomorrow and will spend all day Wednesday at a conference....yikes...I thought I was retired...LOL!!! Anyway.....enough whining....
I made this wedding card for Saturday's Inspiration challenge on Splitcoast. The site Stef picked out was called Santa Barbara specializes in design and wedding inspiration.
I took my inspiration from these beautiful pink ruffled shoes. The Layers of Color Touch of Elegance damask set was used to create the background, the sentiment was from LOC's Sent With Love, and the flowers were LOC's Floweret. All the images were stamped with Fresh Snow onto Pink Pirouette and embossed with white ep. Lace, a pearl flourish, Prima Flower, and gold cording finished it off.
Stamps: Layers of Color Art Stamps Sent with Love, Floweret, Touch of Elegance
Paper: Pink Pirouette
Ink: PTI's Fresh Snow
Accessories: Prima Flower with brad, Lace, Gold cording, White ep, Nestabilities

I made this card for Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast to honor Charlene (Willow01). I took my inspiration from Charlene's Happy Birthday Bird card....I kept the polka dots and altered the layout just a little, changed the stamps to Kim Hughes' Paper Smooches Falling For You set, and changed the theme to a Valentine. The little monster was stamped on the My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow "Grow" Lots of Dots dp and the same paper was used for the scallop layers. The ribbon and tiny sparkly heart finish it off
Stamps: Paper Smooches Falling for You
Paper: Kraft, My Minds Eye dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Heart Sticker, EK success Scallop Border Punch

This is another card I made for the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast. Charlene's gallery was so wonderful I just had to case another card!!! I cased her You are Simply the Best card...I kept the same basic layout but changed the stamps to Rubbernecker's Stamp Oasis Special Delivery and sentiment stamp. I also changed the colors and theme to a Valentine. The cute little boy was colored with copics and paper pieced with stampin Up dp....the heart was hand cut. Thanks to Charlene's gallery, I finished my little boy Valentines and they were all delivered yesterday...Whoohoo!!!
Stamps: Rubbernecker Stamp Oasis Little Lovins Special Delivery and RN sentiment
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Stampin up! dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Copics, Top Note
Thanks for stopping by today....I hope you have a great day!!!!!
