Stampingbella "Parker the Pig"

My card that I am posting today was made for the Stampingbella Bellarific Friday challenge.  This week it's about stitches.  I started out stamping & coloring The Stampingbella stamp called Parker the Pig.  The papers are from the Farm House Paper Company called Fair Skies.  I stitched the blue check to the ballon paper with just some very simple cross stitches using white embroidery floss.  The sentiment "never say never"  was part of the stamp set.

Beach Babes Thank You Card

I needed a quick thank you card for our neighbor.  And since we are in Florida for the winter I thought it would be fun to do a card using "Beach Babes".  This is a stamp set designed by Art Impressions for Hampton Art sold only at Michaels.  The sun and sentiment are also from this set.  The papers are from American Crafts called Mayberry.  

I entering this card in the following challenges:

Have a great day!

Art Impressions "Vintage Vibe"

Vintage Vibe is the theme over at the Art Impressions blog this week.  They have released some new vintage stamps with sentiments that are super cute.  The design team made some really great cards using these new stamps - I love them all.  With the theme being "vintage" the first thing I thought of was wine, so I pulled out one of the newer AI sets from Hampton Art that you can find at Michaels called Wine Diva.  I also pulled out some vintage type paper from Crate Paper called Close Knit.

Stampingbella Uptown Paisley Has A Prezzie

The Stampingbella challenge this week is washi tape or ribbon.  So for my card I pulled out Uptown Girl Paisley has a Prezzie.  I colored her up with Copics and the stripes weren't as bad as I thought they would be, since they are pretty small.  I also got carried away and added Stickles to her skirt, bows and the ruffles on her top.  The sentiment was a diecut from Penny Black called Celebrations.  I love these and use them alot!  The paper is also one of my favorites from Prima Marketing called Doodle Deux.

Art Impressions "Tie It Up" Challenge

For today's card I pulled out another Art Impressions stamp that I have yet to ink up called Crown Set.  I love this gal and the sentiment that goes with.  I paper pieced her suit stamping it twice, cutting out the coat and skirt separately.  The papers are from The Paper Studio Murphy's Square.  The crown on the sentiment was from MFT's Pure Innocence - Something Special For You, which I couldn't find on their site, so it might be retired.  The challenge for the next couple of week's at the AI Blog is "Tie It Up".  You need to use ribbon, twine, string whatever on your card.  Since we are in Florida for the winter and I don't have all my supplies, I'm short ribbon & such.  So I added some yellow twine on my sentiment to match the crown. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
