Here is my submission for card sketch challenge #18 over at 2 sketches 4 You There is no stamping or inking of any kind on this card, just lots of pretty paper. The rose is from one of the prints included in the Bella Rose Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!
Riding Hood Red 4 ¼” x 8 ½” folded to make card
1 ½” x 4”
Bella Rose green print 3 ¼” x 4”
Bella Rose pink print 1 ½” x 4”
Bella Rose floral print 1” x 4”
Kiwi Kiss ¾” x 4”
Bella Rose large flower print ~ cut out flower
Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon
Use your Scallop punch on the bottom edge of the Bella Rose green print and layer it and the Bella Rose pink print onto your card base. Use your Scallop punch on the strip of Riding Hood Red and adhere to the lined up, scalloped Bella Rose green so just a bit of the green shows through. Adhere the strip of the Bella Rose floral print onto your scalloped Riding Hood Red. Wrap the Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon around the Kiwi Kiss strip and adhere to the floral strip. Glue on the three half pearls and create a hat pin with a bow on top. Adhere the hat pin to the card using glue dots. Using your dimensionals, add the large flower. Cover the flower and leaves with Crystal Effects and spinkle some Dazzling Diamonds onto the wet flower. Let dry and tad da! What a pretty card

Today's post is from another challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is a link to the actual challenge. It took me awhile to create the card. You know how you have something in your head but it doesn't want to come out. Well I guess it was my turn. I'm glad I finally got through my lack of creativity and have completed the challenge.

I used the set Say it With Scallops for my next entry along with some of the new Stampin' Up! designer paper. It's an interesting color combination but I think it works quite well. Orchid Opulence (which I hate) and Regal Rose.
Here's a close up of the faux brads. Whenever I add them to my cards I love the way they turn out. And they are so easy! Just punch out some small circles, I used my crop-a-dile, glue them to your card and add a glob of Crystal Effects onto them. ta-da! ain't it pretty?

Now on to the card. ~ I used Regal Rose for the base, Very Vanilla for a smaller than normal mat and then the gorgeous new Designer Paper. I also did the same for the band with the yummy Kiwi Kiss ribbon. The image is from the yet to be released Goody Goody Gumdrops set...shhhh.
Here's a close up of all the 'faux' brads. SO easy to make!

I finished two more pages of my scrapbook. Again I used Carrie Stephens elements. For dimension, I printed out the buttons, layered a few of them together to make them thicker, then covered them with crystal effects. I also dug out my embroidery thread for a few of the buttons but then realized I could just use a marker for the same effect. Lazy girl, huh.
I also added glitter to the scroll design so it's much more sparkly in real life. All the pictures that I have been using were actually developed by my Dad. He had an old fashioned dark room in our basement. He also had some Playboy centerfolds hanging in there. First naked ladies I ever saw.
Thanks for visiting :-)

And here's my kitty, Bella. We just adopted her from the SPCA last week and love her to death. In the picture you can see her pretty pink nail caps. Nail caps cover her claw tips so no damage occurs when she scratches. Which is a good thing for Liyah.
Aren't they the cutest!
This beauty started out because of a fabulous card that I came across at Scrapnextras, which you can see here. The flower is stamped with Regal Rose using the large flower from the retiring :-( set Fabulous Flowers, three times. I then cut them out, used my trusty glitter glue on the petals, then popped them up with dimensionals. I cut out two circles using Whisper White and Regal Rose with my coluzzle. Next I used my scallop circle nestie with Old Olive. Whisper White was ran through my cuttlebug with the Textile Texture folder which almost matches one of the new SU designer papers that I used here.
The cute corner pieces were cut out using a punch from EK. Everything was matted onto Old Olive then onto the Regal Rose base. And of course we can never have enough bling, so I added some rhinestones in the corners and the center of the flower. I think the card has a bit of a Victorian flare. I love it!
My excuse...I had a trip to the ER on Tuesday. I woke up around 4:30 that morning with bend over make you cry cramping belly...I don't want to go into gory details but I spent the whole day in the ER. Got home about 9:00Pm with the diagnosis of colitis. uggg. Just a month ago I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer. I don't know what's going on with my digestive trac but it doesn't sound pretty. So there's my excuse.
Anyway ~ I hope you like my card :-)
