Just Buzzin’ By Card for Stampin’ Connection Challenge


I created this card for a Stampin' Connection challenge based on a card by Ilina Crouse. I changed the paper, the colors, the stamp set and the orientation. I hadn't used Just Buzzin' By since last summer and decided to use it along with papers from Stampin Up's new Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack in the Occasions' Mini catalog.

If you do not like to watercolor, change the stamp set to a solid stamp or a two-step stamp. This is a really quick and easy template!

Crazy for Cupcakes with Bead Duo Frosting Challenge Card


This is a challenge card I created for the Monday Card Sketch Challenge on Stampin' Connection. I had to use this sketch –

and here is my card


I hadn't used the Bead Duos in a while and decided the frosting needed some bling and this would work.  I used sticky sheets to attach the beads.

Of the Earth Masculine Birthday Card

We never have enough masculine cards so this was created to fill that need. I always try to look for other uses for my stamps and Of the Earth worked for this card. You could substitute Pocket Silhouettes (111672) or receive Of the Earth free for holding a $150 workshop (party) or placing a $150 customer order.

It is a very simple card, however, the details make all the difference as shown below.

You could make this a Get Well or Sympathy card by changing just the Sentiment!
