Altenew Layered Rose for The Paper Players Bloom Challenge

I'm the hostess this week at The Paper Players with a Clean and Simple "Bloom" challenge for us!

I have to admit, I'm pretty anxious to buy some flowers for our deck. It's been such a cold spring though, I'm not sure when I will be buying them! I hope soon. It's got to warm up at some point... I have a long list....

Until then, I have been making cards with Altenew's Roses. One day I just cut out a ton of them in various colors, and then spent an evening adhering the layers together while binge watching Netflix. (Bluebloods is my latest obsession)

I chose two pink roses for my card, ones I had made that have only 2 of the 3 layers. The leaves I chose are some I had made using all 3 layers. You can sure get lots of different looks between the layers and colors...I've had lots of fun with this die set. Recently I participated in a rummage sale at our local craft store. They take care of everything for you, and the money you make dollar for dollar you can then spend at the store. I'm sure glad I used some of my earnings to buy these!

Then I backed them on Memory Box Tulisa Collage, and added the sentiment from Momenta.

I hope you will join us!

Dies R Us Birdhouses

Hi everyone!

I'm sharing a card today that I made for the "Birds" challenge at Dies R Us. What a timely challenge,as many birds are finally returning here up north. It was just a few weeks ago I saw my first robin!

Grab our Badge!

 I started out with Tutti Designs Dotted Nesting Rectangles. I REALLY use those a lot. I have many rectangles, but those are just a perfect size for so many projects. I made a frame with them for my Birdhouses, also from Tutti Designs.

As you can see, it is a one piece die. To fit my frame, I cut it apart, letting some pieces hang over the frame for interest.

The Paper Players Color Challenge

Claire has a fun color challenge for us at The Paper Players:

I used the colors with some new dies Cheery Lynn has just released from their retro line. The dies all remind me of the show Happy Days, which was my favorite growing up.... I had a crush on the Fonz! LOL! 

This is the cast:

Here's the link to the theme song too...... which now I have running through my head!

So many cute retro dies in this release, (you can check them out here) but I chose to work with the car today. I LOVE the dice hanging in the window!!!

First I cut and pieced the car and adhered it onto MFT's Blueprint #20 stitched rectangle. I wanted my scene to have a happy, sunny feel, so I used Cherry Lynn's Sun and Clouds to tuck behind the car. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Keep on Truckin', stamped in black. The COOL on the licence plate is also from Cheery Lynn....the Retro Rhetoric dies...lots of fun sentiments in that set!!! I also added a few hearts in the challenge colors here and there.

As you can prolly tell, I had lots of fun with the challenge colors. I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

I hope you will join us!

Cheery Lynn Retro Release

Hi everyone!

 I'm over at Cheery Lynn today sharing a retro card I made with the Classic Car die set. I LOVE this reminds me of my high school days. While my friends and I didn't have a classic old car like this, or dice hanging from the mirror, we did spend tons of time driving around town. Nothing was better then cruising around town on a warm summer night with the radio blaring!

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies May Challenge

Time for Happy Little Stampers May Anything Goes with Dies Challenge!

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I used "Thoughtful Branches" from Stampin' Up for the hydrangea on my card, cutting it out with a background my friends and I made with Viva Inka paints.

Here's a close up, but the photo doesn't show the pretty shimmer and shine very well:

Then I cut out a frame with a rectangle die, and stamped the sentiment in black with Happy Little Stampers Dandelion Wishes.

I hope you will join us!
