crafty hazelnut pattern paper....

This is my first post for 
I figure as much pattern paper as I have....enough to wallpaper my house and my whole neighborhood....and somehow I keep acquiring more!:)
The great thing is you have all month to enter and all you have to do is use pattern paper!
It's easy peasy!!!:)

Here's what I created for March...
supplies: papers-sky cs (amuse studio) and pattern paper (k & co.); ink-onyx black (versafine); stamp- strengthen (stampabilities);flower sticker- k& co.: ribbon-onyx stitched stripe (amuse studio).

I usually always start with a sketch but this time I just went with it and  used papers that I had already cut and didn't use on a project.  Really loving how it turned out! Hope you like it!! I really try not to use the corner rounder....but I can't help it!

I am entering this in...
Dragonfly Journeys...create anything that has one, two or many flowers.

amusing challenge/hello....

I was so flattered when Chris asked me to create a card for her Anything Goes Challenge that she has the last week of the month for her Amusing Challenge at Blessings Ink.

I used the Grow stamp and die set from amuse|studio February Collection.  
Tomorrow is the last day you can order.

Here is my card...
supplies: papers-sky, kraft and grapefruit polkadot cs (amuse studio); ink-onyx black(versafine); stamps and dies-grow (amuse studio); accessories- onyx baker's twine (amuse studio).

I colored it with copic markers but had to be very careful because I did use the versafine stamp pad.  I need a refill for my memento ink pad.  This really was a simple card to put together.
The bubble gum cs....I cut 2X51/2
sky cs 1X51/2
kraft cs 3X51/2
then I just mounted all of them on a base of 41/4X 11 kraft cs. (hotdog cut)

I paperpieced the heart of the hello and put a popdot on the back of the rose vase to pop it up off the scalloped circle.

sisterhood of crafters/think spring

The Sisterhood of Crafters has a new challenge up today!
Darlene is our hostess this challenge and she would like us to
  THINK SPRING
 as we create our project for this challenge!
Hope you will play along with us this challenge. 
You have until March 6th to get your projects linked up!

Here's what I came up with...
supplies: paper- prima; ink-onyx black(versafine); dies-happy(amuse studio) and tag bundle (amuse studio); stamp- happy days (amuse studio); accessories- wood butterfly (prima).

Here's a close up....

I originally was going to put the pattern paper that is behind the striped paper on top to be the happy...but I ran out of it.  I die cut 5 happy's.  I only had enough for 3, so then I used the stripe paper for the last 2 and really like it going the other way with it being offset.

Make sure you pop over to see  what the other DT Sisters did with this challenge!
