This is my design for the current Caardvark Challenge. There isn't a card sketch this time and the guidelines for this challenge is to make something red and to incoraporate hearts. All the stamps that I used were Hero Arts and the ink was distress ink by Ranger. The heart was cut from my "Wild Card" cartridge using my Cricuit Esspression. After I cut the heart (started with white paper), I distressed it with fired red and then stamped it with a flower border stamp and distressed some more. Each squar that the hear sits on is stamped with more flower border stamps and destressed with the same color ink. This was an enjoyable and fun card to make. Thanks for stopping by.
This is my version of the Mojo Monday Challenge for this week. I had lots of fun working on these cards. I used the same inks and stamps; the stamps are Hero Arts and the inks are distressing inks by Ranger. The Mojo Monday Blog gave an option of making one or the other or making two cards. I thought that it would be fun to make two cards. Thanks for stopping by.

This is my take on this challenge. My potted plant Hero Art stamp was perfect for this card. Everything else about this card sort of fell into place. Usually when I am working on a card it takes me most of the evening to finish what I started. The problem that I have is figuring out what color and type of paper to use. Once I know what I want, it doesn't take me long to assemble a card. Most of the time I do manage to get at least one card made a day.

In order to get all the elements to fit on the card, I had to cut the card base to 4 1/4" x 6".

I made this card for the Mojo Monday Challenge for this week. This challenge is for week 121. I decided to stamp this little girl unto a flesh colored paper and then paper piece the rest of her. I thought that paper piecing would be more of a challenge.

The top card that features the white embossed flowers and example card next to it, is for the Challenge Gallery & New Challenge! The bottom card and sketch is for the Caardvarks Challenge. This is the first time that I have submitted cards to these two sites. I enjoy submitting my work because it keeps me current with my craft, helps me improve a little each day, and I enjoy making cards.

This is the card that I came up with for the Mojo Monday Card challenge. Instead of a circle, I decided to use a scallop heart. The butterfly was stamped, colored with Copic markers, cut out, and I applied a layer of Stampin Up! crystal effects.
