MPS Birthday Card Challenge

Hi everyone! This is a card made for my youngest sons 20th birthday.
I had a picture of his s-10 and adjusted the color and came up with this color combination.
Thought the ribbon and patterned paper went perfectly together. He no longer has this truck and thought this would be a great idea. He loved it so much he hung it on his frig in his apartment. Made me feel good that he liked it that much.
Stop on over to MPS blog and check out all the great birthday projects.
Have a great day everyone!
Until next time,
Sherri

Another V' day card

Hi again everyone! received Mary's email on her valentine card this morning and new I had to try this layout ASAP. Thanks Mary for all your great inspirational tutorials and projects. I used non traditional valentine colors and have to tell you the inspiration, besides Mary's card, was this black and white trim I found at Hobby Lobby. It kind of reminds me of the bakers twine except it is silkier. When I cut the ends it wanted to unravel so I got my glossy accents out and dabbed a drop of that on the ends and that worked perfectly. You can see the trim in the picture below, along with the other items I used to make this card.

This was a fun card to make. Better go for now. Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Until Next time,

Valentine's Cards

It's a wintery snowy day here in central Illinois and a perfect day to stay in and work on some projects I have been wanting to get done. Thought I would share my valentine card creations.

This card is inspired by Robyn at My Pink Stamper
This card is one of my creations, simple and not too fussy. Used waxy flax wrapped around the card and tied a chipboard heart to center.

These cards are inspired by Ruthie. I used the layout but changed the octopus out with hearts and "love" letters. The love letters is a block stamp which I embossed with red tinsel embossing powder then cut the letters out and popped them out with pop dots. The red hearts are cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge. All of the patterned paper is K&Co valentine stack.
Thanks so much for looking.
