Used my Nestabilites to cut all these circles, really turned out cute. I think this card would make for a cool masculine card too using the right papers, and twine instead of ribbon.
Not thrilled with the way this one came out, but it's alright. I used the Rubber Band Technique to make the background paper. So easy and fun!

This first card, I made for my youngest son to give to my husband. I found this cute stamp at Michael's and thought that it was just perfect. I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils and used Goo Gone instead of Gamsol to blend it. Love this technique, wish I had a full set of Prismacolors! One day, right? I made the card as a shaker card, and used
coarse glitter to fill it. The frame was made with Coluzzle, and I free hand wrote the sentiment with Ice Stickles. The inside said "No matter how big I get I will always look up to my Daddy". Just love it!
This next card, I made for my oldest son to give, it is a hinged card. The two of them both love anything and everything to do with space, so I used this rocket SVG cut and cut it out with SCAL. Turned out so cute. The patterned paper is DCWV All About Boys stack. I really love how it turned out, and both of them loved it too! In fact, my husband had to wrangle it from my son in order to read it!
That's it for right now, hopefully I can update again here soon, because I do have a couple of other things to share!

OK, so I have been thinking for awhile about making a kaleidoscope using patterned paper. My mom had made a baby quilt for my son using this technique, so I used that quilt for the inspiration. When the challenge was announced, I knew that this is what I had to do. The paper used here is from the 2008 DCWV Christmas Stack. HERE is the link to the challenge thread.

Here is the card that I made for the Card Sketch challenge at From C to Shining C, you can find this challenge HERE. I used Papertrey Ink paper in Lemon Tart and Ripe Avocado. I also used PTI ribbon in Lemon Tart and Spring Moss. The plaid ribbon is from Michael's $1 bin. The marigold cut is a SVG file from SVGCuts.com. I cut this on my Cricut Expression using SCAL. I really liked how this turned out, and I think I will be using this Sketch as an outline in the future!

Here is the card that I made for this challenge (From C to Shining C). It is kind of hard to see in the picture, but I embossed the entire patterned paper in a holographic embossing powder that I got at Hobby Lobby. It really makes the card shimmer. I cut the star using my Coluzzle (still upset that it was discontinued) and the stamp on the star says Imagine and have a butterfly image. Very cute, now I just have to figure out who to give it to!!
Here is the card that I made for From C to Shining C's color challenge. The colors were brown, light blue, pink, and green. I was having difficulty with this one for some reason, still not sure why, so I decided to have some fun with my Cuttlebug! I used 4 different embossing folders on the card, I think the brown is Stylized Flowers, green is Swiss Dots, the pink is Bloom Dots?, and the blue is Distressed Stripes. The stamp on the pink is a little postmark that says Thinking of You, not sure where I got that one from. I actually really like how this turned out, I typically only use one embossing folder per card, so this was a change for me. It definately added a lot of interest!
