Cherryished pear/CDSWCC36

This card is for the CDS Color Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet. The colors this week are

I used black cs as my base, cute cherry paper from Nikki Sivils "My Sweet Cherry Pie" mini paddie from CDS. The sentiment is computer generated, the adorable image from CDS and I colored it with Zig markers. I created the red frame using my nesties. I did sponge a little yellow chalk around my image and sentiment. I attached the ribbon tab and sentiment/image panel using a cherry brad.

Christmas card/MMSC17

Here is the card I made for Midnight Madness sketch challenge
I didn’t use any stamps for this card, it is all (except the cs base and red brads) from a kit I purchased from a catalog.
I added the red brads from my stash.
I just didnt add the the ribbon on the sides.
Midnight Madness has some really great sketches and there are always a lot of people playing. I enjoy looking through everyone’s creations.

2RedBananas Stripes & Dots challenge

2Redbananas challenge this week is Stripes & Dots.

I made this card originally for the CDS Sept Guest Designer spot and liked the way it turned out.

I didnt win so thought it would be ok to repost it for this challenge since it fits pretty well.

The gumball machine is from CDS. The paper is My Mind's Eye Dreamy 2 (the pink striped paper) & Sassfrass Tutti Frutti (the circle paper). The Tutti Frutti paper reminded me of gumballs.
I stamped my image on white cs and cut it out and adhered it to pink cs that was cut using my octogan nestie. I colored it with Zig markers and added some small gems to make the gumballs standout. I added some of the gems on the bottom of the image cuz we all remember dropping some of our gumballs when trying to remove them from the machine:)

I added 3d lacquer to the globe. The yellow ribbon and oval gem came from The Dollar Tree

Father's Bday Card

I made this card for my father's bday coming up this month.
The stamp set is CDS Watermill.
I colored it with copics, sponged the sky with chalk.
I stamped the wheel twice and cut it out and pieced with a brown brad.
I added silver jellyroll glitter to the water.
The paper is from Crate Paper called Tulip , I thought the red textured paper looked like the side of an old barn.
The ribbon is from The Dollar Tree and I attached my stamped image to the red paper with small metallic brads also from CDS.
My Parents live in TN and there is still an old Mill standing and this stamp reminded me of that.
I thought my dad would like this.
