Mother's Day!

This is an "unusual" color for a Mother's Day card.....but I love these colors and they are perfect for the distressed look over at Delightful Delights! This also has a digi image(the mushroom) which is for the challege at Creative Inspiration's! I made the title letters with stamps, and distressed them too! Actually everything about this card is distressed! I even frayed the ribbon ends to distress them!This is also for Scrapbook Sisters(distress),

I didn't know quite what to do, then I remembered seeing a lo last year where stips of paper were pieced together for a this is my version! And of course that's a picture of Dorothy looking out the French doors at a CAT!!! I just love her, and think this picture capture her! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin a peek! Teresa*

I added a little fence with my MS punch, a little pearl flourish with lace on it, lace around image, some very pretty flowers, and finally a bright black and white gigham bow to top it off! I am really tickled with the result.....hope you like it too! For Just Magnolia(Happy birthday),

Guest Designer -Lovely hAnglar only blog! (no patterned paper)

I won the #1 spot over at the "Lovely hAnglar Only" blogspot at the last challenge, and was asked to be guest designer for the next two challenges, and this one is No pattered paper! So this was my design! I used my dictionary stamp on tan cardstock, and embossed the whitecardstock with dots! Also added a strip of cardboard on top of the strip of ribbon! I colored my cute image with distress inks, added some pretty flowers, and that gorgeous gingham ribbon!I am also entering this in
"Creative Stamp Friends" (swirls). Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa*

No pattern paper.........

Okay.......this was tricky!! Over at Magnolia Down Under, the challenge was no pattern paper! So..........I stamped the green paper with my dictionary stamp, and the white paper I embossed it! I also did something quite different with Tilda......I sure hope you can see it.......I made it 3-D in spots!! I did a top layer over her hand with balloon, shoes and socks, balloon, and the bow in her hair! I raised them up with foam dots! It's pretty cool in real life, just hope you can see it in these pictures! I love that material that the bow is made of, and I think it adds a punch to the card! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa*

Sketch- Birthday card!

This card was made using the sketch over at Just Magnolia! I wanted to do something really different, so I did a few things! I used gauze and dyed it with my distress inks. I used some cardboard and covered it with my white paint! I also touched the card here and there with my "snow".........just thought it added a little something! Was fun to make, and I loved the sketch, was fun to work with! I colored Tilda with distress inks, and I also covered the flowers with snow! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa*
