Hi. Love this time of year! The new challenge at Cards In Envy is "Hang your stocking with care!" Make a flat card, any size, featuring Christmas stocking(s), Christmas, or something you might find in your stocking. Have fun!
I had fun with this stitched window die, a rubber stamp in my stash, and "Nostalgia" DP:
I hope you are enjoying the holidays! Have fun with this challenge.
Hi. I like the new challenge at Cards In Envy: Fire or Rain? You can interpret it in different ways at this time of year--cool, rainy fall days; the vivid colors of leaves; autumn campfires...I chose a rainy day digital stamp from Vera Lane Studio at Etsy. Her raincoat, umbrella and boots are shined up with Glossy Accents.
Have fun creating a card, any size...as long as it's flat for mailing!
Hello! The new challenge at Cards In Envy Challenge is: Favorite Holiday. Create a card featuring ANY holiday that is one of your favorites!
I decided to go with Thanksgiving, even though I'm sure Christmas is my true favorite! Thanksgiving is like the beginning of the Christmas season, especially with the Macy's Parade. I used a little clear stamp that is one of my favorites and one of the first stamps I got when I began card making in 2010!
Come join the fun at Cards In Envy, where we challenge you to make cards that are flat for mailing!
Hello! There is a challenge in a group I'm in to make a card featuring another country, in honor of World Card Making Day. I love making vintage and French -theme cards, so out came this beautiful rubber stamp, Tim Holtz DP and distress inks!
Hi! The new challenge at Cards In Envy is "Something Spooky!" Autumn and Halloween will soon be in the air; now's your chance to make a cute or scary Halloween card--any size or shape as long as it is flat and fits into an envelope!
I found wonderful vintage Halloween tags at Polly's Papers on Etsy. It inspired me to try to make a vintage collage.
I had a lot of fun playing with this one. Even a collage can be flat for Cards In Envy style! Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you make!
Hi! I love color challenges; they really jumpstart the mojo. Hope you will join in the new challenge theme at Cards In Envy: Create a card featuring YELLOW & BLACK, which must be prominent on your card.
I went to my favorite vintage theme for my card:

Hope you will join in the fun at Cards In Envy, where we make cards that fit into envelopes!
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!
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!
Here is my card for the Words 2 Craft By challenge theme: "Go where you feel the most alive." I love going to the ocean, watching the waves, breathing the fresh air and feeling that sand between my toes! Everything else melts away.
I had lots of fun making a Gelli print and stencil background to go with this beautiful stamp by Crafty Individuals! I stamped the chairs both onto the background and plain white CS; I colored the striped fabrics, cut them out and attached them to the background.
Hello! The new challenge at Cards In Envy Challengeis Feeling Blue and "Distressed": create a card with Distress Inks and a lot of the color blue.
I had a lot of fun creating this background with blue Distress Inks and stamps! I love the blues in this vintage image from the Graphics Fairy. This type of crinkle ribbon squishes nice and flat for mailing.
The Coffee Loving Paper Crafters Spring/Summer Blog Hop 2018 has been so much fun I just had to pop in one last card before the deadline! Thanks to Amy, her team and the amazing Super Sponsors for providing a really fun week!

Hello. Here is my card #3 for the Coffee Lovers Spring/Summer Blog Hop! I have had this stamp for quite awhile and thought its pattern would go well with some Native American-type theme DP on a 6x6 pad by Pink Paislee. Here's my card:
Clear Stamp: Mark's Finest Papers
DP: "Sweet Freedom" by Pink Paislee

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your weekend is going well. Please leave a comment if you can! Sherry
Hello! Here is a 2nd card I made for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! But, first, I have to tell you a funny story. I saw this stamp set in my collection and thought, wouldn't that sentiment "You Are Hot" be great with this scrap of DP that has electric fans all over it? Yes! ...Except I just now, as I posted my photo, realize that they are globes, NOT fans, doh! When I stop laughing at myself, it may be time for that eye doctor appointment! Anyway, I hope you enjoy my card!
Clear Stamps: STAMPlorations
Copics, Glossy Accents
DP: scrap from stash
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the hop! I hope you will leave me a comment; thanks! Sherry
Hello; thanks for stopping by. The new challenge at Cards In Envy starting today is "One Layer". Make a card with just one layer; the card base does not count as a layer.
Here is my card for the Design Team:
Hello and welcome. The current challenge at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog is "Elegant Jewels." Use jewel-tone colors and add a gem or bit of jewelry to your creation.
I went through my stamps and found this digi, one of the very first digis I received; it was a freebie and I can't recall where it came from! I colored it with jewel-tone garnet red and emerald green Copic markers. I thought the rich red of the berries and green holly leaves on the DP complimented the image nicely:
