Especially For You

Good morning!!
Today is my turn to share my project for this weeks challenge which is:
ANYTHING GOES
Now...I know there are times when I need a quick card.  Maybe one to say thank you...or maybe a "Just Because".  I never seen to have too many of those lying around these days.
So I set out to make a few over the weekend.
The designs are simple, but I love the results.  Sometimes simple makes a string statement all on its on.  The flower wreath was created using "You Brighten My Day" stamp set, then embossed using silver and gold embossing powder.
Here is the Purple and Silver card, to which I added purple pearls.

Here is the lime and gold, to which I added gems.
The center sentiment is from the "Simple Greetings" stamp set.

I decided to create a fun, clean and simple card for this week's challenge.

And my go to product this week....the new ART STENCIL's SS carries!!

Have you had a chance to check them out?
They are so much fun to work with!!

You can see all the stencil's here!

Here's my card:
I used the new Moroccan Tile Art Stencil!  Along with some fun colored molding paste!
I love the texture the paste creates!

With this fun, bright card, the "You Brighten My Day" sentiment from the You Brighten My Day set, was the perfect sentiment to use!!

And one more close-up of the texture...I love it:
So fun!
And so many possibilities!!!

Wedding Gift Tag

Hello!  Lisa here today and I've created a tag based on our Wedding Challenge, that I hope to see you all play along!



Supplies Used:


To create my tag I started with water color paper and trimmed it into a tag shape.  I then colored my flowers with Distress Markers, spritzed with water and stamped onto the tag.  I water colored with blue around the outside of my image.  I then stamped my sentiment, and die cut along the bottom.  To finish I punched a hole in the top and tied grey satin ribbon through it.

I can not wait to see your creations this week!
Happy Crafting!
Lisa
