Guest Designer at Words 2 Craft By!

Hello and welcome! I'm very happy to be a guest designer at Words 2 Craft By for their new challenge which begins today.

The inspiration quote for the new theme comes from Dr. Seuss:

Will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
Kid, you'll move mountains!  --Dr. Seuss
I chose a back-to-school design for my card. I colored a digital stamp by MelonHeadz Illustrating with Copic markers and I embellished the card with EK Success stickers. The DP is from A.C. Moore: 

Thanks again to W2CB for inviting me to be a guest designer! I can't wait to see what you create for this fun challenge!

Something New!

Welcome! The new challenge theme at Cards In Envy starting today is "Something New" -- create a card using a new technique, stamp, ink, etc.!

The "something new" I used is a neat die set I recently got from Stamp Simply Steel Dies called "Coffee or Tea?" I saw a card made with it during the recent coffee lovers hop and had to have it!
Here's my card:

Stamp Simply Steel Dies: Coffee or Tea?
DP: My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad "On Trend"
The pinks in the cup and the bottom strip match much more closely than they look in the photo!
I love tea and it was fun to make the little "tea bag"
Can't wait to see what you make for this challenge. Be sure to share what your "something new" is!

By the Sea

Hello and welcome to the new ON THE BEACH challenge at Cards In Envy! You may use any theme as long as your card has a beach image on it.

I had a lot of fun making this card, using a new stamp I ordered from Crafty Individuals!

First, I made a Gelli plate background with paints, texture and stencils. I made (ahem) several before I was happy with the seaside feeling of this one!

I stamped the chairs on white CS, colored them with Copic markers, and cut out the striped parts of the chairs. I stamped the chairs onto the background scene and attached the striped pieces. I did the same with the kite, coloring it and attaching it to the background.

I hope you enjoy my card and I can't wait to see your beachy creation!
