Cards, cards, and more cards

This post is an all card post today. WOW, not sure that has ever happened before except for World Card Making Day of course.

Were starting off with one of the Brand New TADA Creative Studios Collection. Its Poolside and has great bold summer colors, with a pool theme. I used the Mini Ooh La La Layers Brain Freeze and backed that with the B side from the Snippets & Clippets. Added Ball of Fun and Snack Shack papers, and created the Flag from the SPF 50 paper (its the yellow from around the pool.) Add some vinyl Stickies for the sentiment and you have a quick and easy card which will hopefully chase the winter blues away.

To create the Flag I used LifeStyle Crafts Party Flags Inserts and on the white part of the ice cream cones I added White Sparkly Fluff, which if you aren't familiar is like flocking mixed with glitter. Its a great product that you use with a liquid glue.

What is a good liquid glue you ask, well I use Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue. I found it at Joann's and it works AWESOME. I love this glue and use it all the time, especially when creating fan fold flowers. In case you aren't familiar with it here is a photo of the bottle.

CropStop Challenge #58 It's a Baby
This weeks challenge at CropStop is all about babies. We challenge you to make a project with a BABY theme. Challenge yourself to create something different than your usual, maybe try a layout or a card or maybe a Baby shower present.

So I made this lil duckie card. I used Quickutz Classic Embossing Folder, a Spellbinders die to create the base for the chipboard duck to sit on. The sentiment sticker is one of the brand new border stickers from SRM Stickers. The fussy cut banners are October Afternoon as is the duck.
Items available at the CropStop Store: Quickutz Classic Embossing Folder, Cutter Bee Scissors, Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat.

Remember you have til Wednesday Feb 22 at Midnight to post your baby creation over at the CropStop Blog.

True XOXO Bonus Challenge

Our regular monthly challenge -Get Messy is still going on til the end of the month, but we thought we'd let you be inspired by one word this month: LEAP!

When I heard about this Leap challenge the only thing that kept leaping into my mind was a frog so I decided to make a card that featured a frog but still kept with the love theme of February.

The papers & frog sticker are from We R Memory Keepers - 72 and sunny collection. Alphas - Jenni Bowlin. Stickles on Heart.

So you have until leap day (of course!) to complete a project inspired by the messy challenge or LEAP to be eligible to be on our design team for a month. So what are you waiting for? 1.. 2.. 3.. LEAP!

Hope you liked the cards I created.
