Hello Friends!

It is time for another Mailbox Smiles challenge over at CardzTV and here is what I made for your inspiration.

I started with a piece of white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base

Next I cut another piece of white card stock to approximately 4 X 5 1/4" and using the Tim Holtz Grid Dot stencil and some watermelon ink from Simon Says Stamp I used a Clarity Stencil brush and brushed on the ink to create the background for my image.  Once done I cut the paper down to 3 1/4" X 4 7/8".  I then cut a black mat to mount the background on. The black mat is cut at 3 3/8" X 5".

My image is from the Silhouette store and is a print and cut.  I cut it at approximately 3 1/2" and adhered it to my image background piece with some foam tape.

My sentiment is stamped from the CardzTV Favorite Phrases stamp set in some Versafine Onyx Black ink, and my card is finished.

Now it is your turn.  Link up your "Anything Goes" project for a chance to win a set of stamps from CardzTV.

Two Hearts ... One Love

It is time for another Design Team Mailbox Smiles challenge over at CardzTV.  Remember all challenges are Anything Goes.  Here is what I made for this challenge.


For my card I started with white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I used the second to the largest Stitched Oval Memory Box die to cut my oval. Using a Balzer Design, Heart and Swirls stencil and some Moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste, I added some glitter to my oval die cut and allowed it to dry.  I then die cut the bride and groom out of black card stock.

I used the My Favorite Things Oval Window Die-Namics die to cut out my sentiment which was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the CardzTV  Be My Valentine stamp set.

Now it is your turn. Be sure to enter the challenge with you Anything Goes project for a chance to win a set of Stamps from CardzTV.

Happy Father's Day

It is time for another Mailbox Smiles challenge over at Cardz TV.  Here is what I made for the Anything Goes challenge.

I started with some Kraft card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I used the second to the biggest die from the Stitched Rectangle die set by Memory Box and cut a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock down for my mat.  I used some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to create my background.  I then die cut the Tall Grassy stems left  corner die from Memory Box out of some green card stock and adhered it to my card.  Next I cut a small dragonfly from the Impressions Obsessions Dragonfly Die set and added it to the card to finish the image off.

My sentiment is from the CardzTV You're the Man stamp set and is stamped in some Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

Now it is your turn.  Make any project and enter it into the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing you there.

Have a Great Day!

It is time for another Anything Goes challenge for the Mailbox Smiles CardzTV Design Team.  Here is what I made for this challenge.
My husband and I were just at the beach last weekend for our anniversary and he told me how relaxed he felt at the beach, so naturally I wanted to make a beach themed birthday card for him as his birthday is next week.

I found these tropical sunglasses in the Silhouette store and thought they would be perfect for his card. I  cut the glasses at  2.75" high which made them a little over 3.667" wide.  My patterned papers are from Bo Bunny.  My sentiment is stamped with some Versafine Onyx Black ink and is from the Simply Said stamp set.

Now it is your turn. Hope on over to the CardzTV blog and link up your anything goes project.

I found this Flamingo cut out card in the Silhouette store and thought it was adorable so of course I wanted to make it.  The file makes a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  It is a quick and easy card to make and the different layers for the flamingo went together quickly. My sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and is from the CardzTV Stamp set Favorite Phrases.
