Play Date Cafe

This is for theplaydatecafe  fun bright color challenge this week.

The white background was torn on one side then run through a crimper then sponged on the edge with Color Box sky blue.  The other papers are from my scrap file. I have taken stamp sets apart and put them in CD cases by type so I am really not sure where the stamps are from. I think I will have to start putting better labels on the cases so I can give credit.

Easter chickies

I made these 2 cards for my grandsons using the tuesday throwdown challenge of spring theme.
I found these cute chickie stamps in the dollar bin at Michael's. I colored them with Tombow watercolor markers.The sentiment stamp actually begins with Happy Easter but with the ribbon also saying that, I blocked out the Happy Easter to stamp the sentiment and then used 3 punch out flowers to fill the space. The eggs are also dollar bin at Michael's. The border punch is Martha Stewart. The oval is Nesibilities. I've had that grass paper a long time and can't remember its source.

scraps card

papertrey paperdolls has a challenge this week of using up scraps. Good opportunity for me as I have a HUGE file of scraps. I used the sketch from Stamping 411 and rotated it. Here is my card.
It is hard to see but that scallop border punch (from ek) also embosses dots along the edge. The flowers are from Michaels--I pulled them off a stem of flowers I found in their bargin bin. I seldom buy the flowers petals pre-packaged as they are so expensive. I think this stem of flowers had about 40 blossoms on it.
