I know I made a promise a while ago about laying this stamp to rest, but here is yet another card with it!!! The plain white picture with the two hearts in the corner is the inside of the card. I usually leave it blank on the inside but this time I decided to put something in there as the card is black throughout. Sorry, no cricut on this card...lots of bling and liquid glass and I even dusted off my CM heart punch for this one.
I saw this card going in a different direction. Def not one of my fav cards but I am determined to publish what I create as that will gve me new perspective :) I cut the bunny from PDDU at 4 inches real dial size and the flowers from PS cart at 0.75 inch. The stamp is from M - their dollar easter stamp. I added colorful brads and bling to finish it off.
I think those M dollar stamps are adorable....here is another easter one!!! No cricut but did use my CB to emboss the background spring colors. I added the grass as the stamp was pretty lonely. The black buttons are from M and I added liquid glass to the bunny's heart. Plain but bright and springy.

I had a really good show last week and sold 24 cards!! I was really excited so I decided to get a head start before the next show. I wanted to make several cards quickly (ask my hubby...it usually doesn't go quick) so I decided to make mini cards - about 2.5 x 2.5 inches square. These 4 are the first of several. I used stamps from M and a variety of embellies. Had fun adding glitter and liquid glass as well.
I know...no cards for essentially weeks and then lots in one day!!! This was another challenge, on the Friday Sketchers Blog. I wanted to start on my cards for this occasio as it is usually a good seller for me. I used the costco paper for the pattern and the flowers stamp is from M (borrowed from my aunt - thank you!!). The flower embellies are from MM (I think) and the XO stamp is MS clear valentine's set. Lots of layers on this one.
It has been a long time since I participated in a challenge...so here it goes. This is the CPS challenge of the week. I made this card for a friend of mine who invited my daughter to fly to see them in their new home in Alberta. She spent alot of time and money to ensure my daughter got to see all the touristy things in Banff. I will be eternally grateful for her kindness and this card was mailed to her today to show that appreciation. I used the Plantin Schoolbook cart and cut flowers at 0.75 and 1 inch. The leaves were also cut by that cart at 1.25 inches. I used my CB to emboss the leaves and the sentiment is a stamp from M. I added some skittles, brads and bling to "pop" it. The background paper is from the glitter stack.

This was the card I made for my hubby for V-day. I saw the idea of love vouchers from someone else's blog...sorry I didn't document that blog name :( The paper is from Joanns and the hearts are all cut from Plantin Schoolbook cart...at 2.25, 3, 3.75 inches. I used 3D tape to make the heart into a pocket to hold the individual cards. I also wrote a sentiment on the inside. The small hearts on the front is from a MS punch.

I have been neglecting my duties here at "Dawn's Cards"...lol. Between having the flu and a bad cold, I haven't created in a while :( This card I made for my co-worker who is going on maternity leave this Friday. We had collected a bunch of money and made her a diaper cake!! She loved it. Anyhow, we had some money left over so we got her a gift card. I used the NA cart for this woman cut at 4 inches, MS punch, Prima flowers, brads from M, CB folder swiss dots, and computer generated words.

My co-worker is having a baby next month and I decided to elect myself to make the card for the office to sign. Since she doesn't know what she is having...I think it was appropriate to make the card green and yellow. This cute giraffe sticker and green gems were bought at M. The other paper was from my scraps and the green card was from Joanns. I had to put white cardstock on the inside of the card, as the card is green throughout.
Well, I almost succeeded....44 cards total including 17 challenges. I am rather happy with last month's goals. I only missed 3 days in an entire month :) Now, my goals are more obtainable...to send out cards on birthdays, without forgetting anyone or being late in doing so. Hope everyone had fun following the January challenge.

For this challenge at Mojo Monday, I chose a variety of opposing colors. I really like both the olive green and the light pink together, and what better stamp than one expressing a friendship. This stamp was a part of my swap with my aunts. The brads and ribbon are from M and the cut was done from WIMG; stem cut at 2.5 inches and the flower, shadowed at 1 inch. I also used liquid glass on the centre of the flower.
