Creative Craziness

Hi all!  I went a little overboard in the studio today and have all kinds of creations to share with you.  It was cold outside and I have no desire to be out freezing when I can be inside making a card!  So are you ready??? 

First up is a card I made for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Finesse the Dress and Case Study Challenge # 62:

How beautiful are these colors???  Love it!  Here's my card:

I adore these colors together.  My stamped sentiment and ink are Papertrey Ink.  My flower is Petaloo.  Lace is Pink Paislee.  I dry embossed my cardstock and added a scalloped boarder.  Very easy card to make!  This month's Case Study Muse is Nikki Estes!  So fun to find inspiration from her cards.

OK up next is....drum roll please....ColourQ:

And Ribbon Carousel:

I'm also entering this card in Papercraft Star Challenge 67 - A trick or a treat.  And my card:

My patterned paper, pumpkin, and berry lace can be found in this month's Sampler Kit - Mrs. Weasley.  My pumpkin is chipboard that's been painted with crackle paint.  My stamps are PTI.  And my pretty doily cut out is Martha Stewart. 

Now for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge:

And CardPatterns:

And my card:

I really struggled finding a mauve color to match the PDCC, so my color turned out a little more purple.  My cardstock, stamps, ribbon, and die cuts are PTI.  My lace is Pink Paislee. 

Now for one more creation.  I made it to Round Four of the Practical Scrappers Card Making Contest!  So excited.  I REALY REALLY REALLY need your votes!  This week you can vote by poll, one vote per person.  Just follow this link to vote.  Here is my card for this round:

Our challenge this round was to use chevrons and stitching.  My paper is The Girls Paperie and cardstock is PTI.  My pink ribbon is PTI and I used glue dots to give it a chevron shape then stitched it to my cardstock.  My stamped sentiment is Maya Road.  Using my sewing machine to stitch on projects makes me really nervous (because I'm a disaster sewing!), but it turned out perfect!

Thanks for stopping by!  Tune in next week for a fun announcement and a BIG giveaway
