Challenge STVFRICT5 for Stamptv

Here is my CASED card for stamptv.We had to change 2 things on the card we cased by Carolina and here is what I did.

I didn't copy her picture to here but I changed the hearts to flowers I used ribbon instead of string and embossed half the card,and added some black pearls to the center.

Marks Finest Papers Challenge no. 65

Here is my card for the marks finest papers challenge to use 3 hearts on your card. I got this stamp from someone and haven't used it yet so had to play with it and it stamps great! So my three are two stamped images and one heart cut out with the word thanks on it. I added some mini pearls to the center of the card.

This one was hard for me,lol. The color's are orange and yellow..... not to easy. But I found some old papers in a tablet form that had some of these colors and today I found this Disney folder and die cut that is a little banner for only 2dollars!!!! So this is what I

came up with for the challenge.

Michael Strong blog hop

Welcome to the Michael Strong hop! This is my first hop so hopeing it works out good! You should have come from Dorly's blog!
With this card I embossed everything with copper then cut them out, I wasn't sure if I wanted a black or white card so black won.
With this one I used Tim Holtz distress inks of aged mahogany. then embossed it with the swiss dots folder.
With my last one I did the backgound with the little cups and then embossed them with clear powder then used aged mahogany and vintage photo on it then wiped it off to show the cups.
You are here
You can now head over to Mirand's blog and see what she has made for us.
And you can get these stamps and lots of others at Mikes website

I got this little tree while shopping on vacation at a Michaels in Altoona, so I wanted to play with it to see how it looked and was happy with the out come. I stamped it directly to the card and colored it with color pencils. First went with a green then went over it with yellowgreen.Then I embossed it all with the swiss dot folder.

Happy Birthday Rainbow

I didn't get this one done intime for a challenge so thought i would post it here. I use a very old ink pad stamp that has these 3 colors on it and just swiped it across the page. I like how it turned out. I use the Michael Strong butterflies on it.The one butterfly was stamped again then cut out and applied to the top of the one for more demension.
Enjoy your day!
I entered this in the outlawz CAS challenge # 0710

Here is a fast Birthday card. I used embossing powder that has glitter in it. This is the only color I found so not sure if it comes in other colors.

I'm am trying something new for me and blogging from my Picasa to see if this works. Not sure I like not being able to proof it before posting it but will see how this comes out.Ok in checking it out I see I can enlarge the print on the photo next time and it can be edited before I keep it up . This is for a challenge on the Michael Strong group to use a bird.
