Lots of cards today.....

So I was looking for a little mojo yesterday to create some fun cards to add to my ever growing card stash. So I went to some of my favourite blogs looking for so inspiration.

My first stop was to the Carrdvarks blog to check out their lastest challenge.

Here's the awesome sketch I found....

Here are the 2 cards I created using the sketch:

Butterfly Wishes

supplies: patterned paper: SEI; stamps: Hero arts; ink: Ranger; cardstock: Prism; tools: Corner rounder by EK Success, ribbon threading punch by Fiskars, Nestabilities by Spellbinders; ribbon: misc.; other: thread.

Next I ventured off to Taylored Expressions where I found this yummy sketch!

And here are the 2 cards I made using Taylor's sketch:

Warm Wishes Bunnies

supplies: patterned paper: BasicGrey; cardstock: Bazzill, Prism; edge punches: Fiskars; stamps: Hero Arts; ribbon: Making Memories; inks: Copics, Ranger; tools: Nestabilities by Spellbinders; other: thread.

Then I arrived at Prairie, Paper and Ink where Amy had posted her Friday sketch #54!

For some reason, I really struggled with this one. I pushed my papers around for an hour until I finally decided to glue and stitch everything down for this one. I wish my flower was a little different in colour but too late now!

And here's what I made using Amy's sketch:

Happy Birthday to You

supplies: patterned paper, stamps: Papertrey Ink; inks: Ranger, Copics; tools: Ranger paper piercer & distressing tool, Cuttlebug embossing folder; ribbon: Offray; other: thread.
