Lady Liberty Sophia - PWC112 Glitter

This week's Paper Pretties challenge was glitter. I automatically thought of Lady Liberty Sophia. Isn't she just adorable!!! Living in NY, I couldn't pass her up...she is too cute. Anyway the challenge this week was to use glitter. Here is my glittering card. I am in love with all the sparkle. Of course it's more glittery in person the fireworks all glitter...even the ones with the sentiment.



I used the Paper Pretties Lady Liberty Sophia and one of the three sentiments. I used SU paper Night quite navy, Dazzling diamonds with the Sakura Quickie Glue Pen (love it!! You can to get glue in all the detailed places like I did with her crown). The fireworks were one of those dollar stamps from one of my local craft stores. I knew I would use it someday....I think it's about 5 years old and just got it first ink. Good things come to those with a plan LOL.

If you would like to participate in this week's challenge, you could win the Paper Pretties set Wade E. Bug. Just link your project to the bottom of the Paper Pretties blog.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Be sure to visit the Paper Pretties store, they are adding new stock everyday and look out for their new release. I hear it is coming in August...Can't wait!!!

Sugar Nellie Swap card

I signed up for a Sugar Nellie swap a while back...I thought how hard can it be it was 3 + 1. Well this one took me a few months to complete. I just couldn't get the design down, but since it is due next week I had to get it out this week. I finally got it together this morning. Here is the finished card.



Sugar Nellies Summer Ice cream, SU Cardstock, Martha Stewart punches, Paper Pretties Pearls and Smooch spritz

Paper Pretties Weekly Challenge

The Paper Pretties challenge this week was to use non-traditional Christmas colors. I tried but found it challenging to stay away from colors so I decide to go with black and white. This is non-traditional, right? Anyway, coloring in black and white is harder than I thought....you really need to work the dark colors first and then go lighter. The photo could have been better but since I was taking the photo at 6AM this morning before the kids got up and getting ready for work you will have to forgive me...

Paper Pretties stamp: Angel Wings Sophia, SU Black and Gray cardstock , Martha Steward Punch and Paper Pretties Black Rhinestones.

If you would like to play along, just go to the new Paper Pretties blog for the challenge. The Paper Pretties ladies will be randomly choosing one participant to win Paper Pretties "You're Maarvelous Sophia".

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.

Paper Pretties card PWC109

I made an orange and blue card for my friend Melanie's birthday. When I gave it to her, she said "you have made me an orange and blue card for my birthday, every year and this better be orange and blue" LOL... why orange and blue....Melanie is a huge Mets Fan and that is their colors. For this card I followed last week's Paper Pretties challenge: Here is the sketch


And here is the card:



For this card I used SU blue and orange cardstock, SU on the spot background, Pink Paislee 365 Degrees, Snow White Pearls, Always in my Heart Sophia, and for the balloons and sentiment, I used the $1 stamp G clear stamps.

FYI:

Paper Pretties has a new owner Heather Lee-Reppen. Heather is all about customer service!! I placed an order and my stamps in 2 days. She is running a special.... all stamps are 10 to 75% off, but MOST are in the 40 to 50% range.
