Simply Betty - June Fairy

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a lovely week. Half way there!! 
I'm stopping by to share a project I made for Simply Betty's June Progressive Challenge.  This is the first time in a long while that I have had the time to play along, and I had so much fun with it! You can find information about her challenge in her Simply B Stamps Facebook Fan Page.  Here is a look at my card:


For the challenge, we were to use the colors black, red, yellow and cream.  I decided to make her wings the black element...not a color I would typically use for fairy wings, but I am loving how they look!  We also had to include some glitter, which I have added to the sentiment.  I also used Wink of Stella on her wings, but it is hard to capture that in the photo. Here is a closer look at the digi and sentiment:



Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week:)

Hugs,
Bonnie

 In Picmonkey, I also added the sentiment.  Once it was printed out, I matted it with Bazzill cardstock, added a ribbon, and mounted it all on white Bazzill cardstock. Not my usual method for making cards, but I really wanted to embrace the 'Make it Digital' theme.  Would you like to play along with our challenge?  It's really easy...just head on over to the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see all of the rules.

Stamp Anniething - Vanessa Cheese

Hi everyone! You might have noticed that my posting has gotten less frequent over the past few months. Because of changes in my everyday schedule, I have stepped down from some DTs.  I still love my card making, and I love being back in school, but there are only so many hours in the day!  

Anyway...I've had some time this week to play around with some new stamps, and new products, so I did just that!  Here is a shaker card I made using the Vanessa Cheese stamp from Stamp Anniething.  Go check them out - their stamps are so cute!  I also wanted to play around with a shaker kit I recently bought from Queen and Co.  And it's a camera - they were meant to be together, lol! 

Here is a look at the finished product.  I used light ink to stamp the image, using the no-lines technique. One I don't do very often, but I love the results! 


Here is a closer look at this cutie:


The card is made with paper and shaker supplies from Queen and Company, lace, cheesecloth, and Wild Orchid flowers.  Kinda cute, I think.  What do you think?  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a lovely day!
