Three new cards for Crafty Sentiments, House Mouse, & SCS ~ Friends, Easter & Scripture

First, this is my take for  the March 28th Crafty Sentiments Sketch Challenge #11 found here!
CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Crafty Sentiments
PAPER: CTMH Designer Paper, Textured Heavy Cream CS
INK: GOLD Dye Ink, Black StazOn
ACCESSORIES: Spellbinders, Designer Adhesive Buttons

Second, for House Mouse Monday Challenge #66, it's an EASTER theme this week! It's Hosted by my sweet friend and wonderfully talented DT Member Heather.   I created this FUN Easter Card:
STAMP: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, "Anybody Home", #HMIR1004.
Paper: Easter/Spring Themed Designer Pack, Banana Yellow, Blue Textured CS, White Heavy CS.
Ink: Copics, Marvy LePlume Markers, CTMH Chalks, GOLD Leaf Pen
Accessories: Cuttlebug DOTS Embossing Folder, Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Adhesive Pearls, UltraFine White Glitter, Gold Ribbon, Gold Cording, Gold Easter Egg Charm
Technique: Paper Tole

I've added a textured Blue Cardstock Layer behind the MS punched border. For the look of the layers behind the main panel, simply cut extra Spellbinders diecuts of the smae shape then cut those in half, glueing to the top and bottom backs of your main panel. I personally also like to outline the outer lines of these diecuts with markers for extra pizazz. :) The background of the image panel is cotton chalked for blue skies. The main image is colored, layered and outlined.

Third, here's an ODBD Card featuring stamps from the Scriptures 3 & Vine Borders Aniversary Release Sets. This was created for today's TLC Challenge #TLC266 at SCS and using this week's Midnight Madness Sketch found here!!
Stamps: ODBD Scripture Collection 3 & Vine Borders
Paper: Vellum, White Heavy CS, Polkadot Green DP (unknow brand)
Ink: Black StazOn, CTMH Chalks
Accessories: Silver Cording, Silver Cross Charm, Rhinestone Star, Rhinestone Flourishes by Jolee's Boutique & Silver Brads, MS Border Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Chalking

Thank you for stopping by today & for your support! Happy Creating!
