Die Cuttin Divas ch# 104

I love Tic Tac Toe challenges!!! I chose to do the middle row down which is: buttons, three patterned papers, and embossing. I used buttons for the inside of the flowers. I used  different patterns for the flowers and butterflies. I embossed the white piece of card stock with quatre foil by The Paper Studio. I used the Forever Young cartridge for the flowers and a butterfly punch by Studio G. I used Scrappy Moms stamps: The Charmed life and a piece of white ribbon. I used DCWV  Dots, Stripes, and Plaids Stack. Go see what the talented design team created @

pause dream enjoy challenges #3- Mainly Red

I love how this card turned out! For this challenge you have to use mainly red so I thought a red wagon and red hearts would look great together. I used Just Because Cards cartridge for the wagon and Doodlecharms for the hearts. I made this card for an Anniversary or Valentine's card. I used little red heart brads for the middle of the wheels. Head on over to to see what the design team created!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge- Valentine's theme

I've been wanting to post this for a few days now but I haven't been able to because the internet has been down. I love challenging myself to try something different. This time I used tulle and wrapped it around a piece of pink card stock to bring some texture into the card. I also used an embossing folder called tiny hearts that is a hobby lobby brand. I used Create A Critter 2 for the heart box of chocolate's. This is an A2 size card. Head on over to and have fun!

Use it Tuesday challenge #48: Warm It Up!

I used Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge because in this challenge you use your scraps or things you've had for a while. I've had this cartridge for months and have only used it for paper dolls for my daughter to play with, so I thought it would make a cute summer card. I also used some paper I've had for a while too. I used green tulle for a net which even though I forgot to add before I put my card base down, I think it turned out cuter. I used all three colors: Red, Orange, and Yellow. Head on over to to see all the fun projects and play along!
I took the same paper I used for the paper dolls skin and took a dark brown ink over it to give it a sandy look. I also just ripped the paper a bit for some texture.

This is the inside of my card. I use a strip of the base background and some green so it would stand out.
