The challenge this week at Papertrey Paperdolls is inspiration from a food container. I looked through some card I already had and found this wedding card I had just made for a neice and thought--"Cool Whip" The container is blue and white and contains white fluffy stuff. So I think this card fits the bill. The card base is blue with a layer of white impressioned swirly paper. The accents (Marvy square scallop punch from TLC) are same blue as base and the sentiment stamp is TLC. Looks yummy!!

This is for Heather at card sketch 123. Heather I love that you put the dimensions on your sketches. Makes it so easy to whip out a card. This is a get well on lilac cardstock layered with purple and cream. The stamp is "crackle berries" from Stampability. I highlighted the berries with purple star gel glitter pen. The sentiment is from PTI. Then I accented with a purple square paper clip (isn't that cute) and 2 square brads anchor the sentiment. Hope my friend feels better after getting this card.

I did a CAS card for 2S4Y sketch this week. I needed a
sympathy card and like to do them in muted colors. I chose tan, brown, and cream with blue accents. The blue paper came with the muted brown writing on it. The
sentiment and butterfly are from PTI.

Two posts in one day and so close together--wow! I finally got to my craft room today to make cards so have been doing the sketch challenges I find on blogs. This is for 2 Sketches 4You 58. I use a lot of butterflies. This one is from a set I found at JoAnn's. I used black ink and stamped it on orange cardstock, cut it out, and used jeweler's wire to make the antenna. I used white cardstock, neon green and orange cardstock layers. Not a color combo I would normally think of but the ribbon is neon green background with orange butterflies. Just matches the card really well. Happy Birthday is from Stampabilities. I used pop dots to adhere the butterfly. Hope you like it.
For MoJO week 151. A friend of my MIL wanted some specific cards for her great grandchildren. I found this cute Danny dinosaur stamp from Stampabilities. And wouldn't you know Hobby Lobby had paper that just coordinated with that. The dino is colored and shaded with Tombow markers. In real life it does not look that contrasted. It is something the scanner picked up. I did the dots in red and then added some glitter with my clear star gelly roll pen. Little boys need bling too!
The orange strip is cut with decorative scissors. I thought it duplicated the backs of the dinos. The inside says " I hope you have a DINO-MITE birthday". The sentiments are all computer generated and are in orange script. I hope her great grandson enjoys his card.--and you too.

This is for Monday sketch 121 at Heather is so great to put up the measurements on her sketches. Makes the creativity flow faster. I used white cardstock with scraps from my paper pile. The sentiment is from TAC--the inside says "filled with wonder & joy" and Happy Birthday.

This is for sketch 58 at 2S4Y. Thanks to Laura and Kazan for all their great sketches. I used pick shimmer cardstock from Gemstones. The print is a white, green, pink flower pattern. The green strip is wrapped with pink ribbon. Then the pink flower is anchored by a yellow button to a white scalloped circle that has been "smudged" with pink geranium ink from Martha Stewart. The many thanks stamp is TAC.

For MoJo Wk 150. White cardstock, pink, green, and print papers are all from Hobby Lobby. Scallop punch is Martha Stewart. The flower actually fluffs up but the scanner flattens it out It is attached with a silver brad. The print is hard to see, it is white background with green dabs and pink flowers. The Happy Birthday stamp is from TAC. I stamped it with lime green Stampabilities but that didn't show too well so I traced over it with a lime glitter pen from TAC. The plaid ribbon is American Crafts. The inside has a b'day greeting on white cardstock backed by the green cardstock and a strip of the plaid ribbon across the top.
