New home card

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:00 PM 9 comments
Happy Monday Friends! If your coming here from the FOSTV challenge I am so happy you are playing along. If not, well you should because this weeks challenge is New Home cards. I was really thrown for a loop with this challenge because I have no MFP, AHC stamps that have a home on them. It was time to get creative ( This is what these challenges are all about anyways right?) . I used the leopard print from the Be Wild and Free set for my stone wall.  I then added the trees from Tree Greetings as "shrubs" and finally the sentiment from Tweet That to complete it. I love the results and I love the fact that you can use stamps in so many ways. Sometimes not for their intended use. Hope you all have a good week and Happy stamping!

Doodle Frame Valentine

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:00 PM 9 comments
Doodle a frame you say? OK! I love to doodle anything so when I heard the challenge for Speedy Fox and friends was to doodle a frame on a card I was pretty excited! I dusted off the old SU markers ( ok they really didn't need dusted  I use them all the time) and got to work. I used the Love , Love , Love set from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. for my card because I'm in a Valentines day mood! I have been seeing all these adorable Valentines day cards on Pinterest and just couldn't help myself. I know, I know its only January but Love is in the air. Are you on Pinterest? You can follow me there or just browse my board of cards.Follow Me on Pinterest   Lots of neat ideas on there but, for starters you should doodle a frame and join us for this challenge. Who knows, you might just win a awesome stamp set.

ribbon binding

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:30 PM 3 comments

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I wanted tp show you what I did for the FOSTV Challenge which was to use ribbon in a creative way. I used ribbon to bind two pieces of paper together to form a card (instead of just folding paper). I just punched holes in the paper and then wove the ribbon through and tied with a bow.  My moms birthday is today and she looovees butterflies (which is why I sell live butterflies for releases ) so I wanted to make her a card with butterflies. I used the Mothers Magnolias set because I love the sentiment. Happy birthday mama!!

Twine for a valentine

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:30 PM 7 comments
Ohhhh I'm so glad its the weekend! I don't know about you guys but I could use some stamp time. This week has been crazy busy. I got home to make this card and was so happy I got to stamp for at least a little bit. I used the new set for the challenge this week for Speedy Fox and Friends which is to use twine on your card. I think everyone probably has bakers or some kind of twine now so I expect to see lots of entries haha. The new set I used is from Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. and its called LOVE LOVE LOVE. I love the checkered heard because it looks hand drawn and its good for masculine cards which I did here. I love playing with this twine and hopefully can make a few more of these cards tonight. Hope you play along with us this week because you could win an awesome stamp set!

I love the challenge for FOSTV this week which is to use something recycled on your card. I bought a premade dog scrapbook years ago because i loved some of the embellishments inside but hated the paper they used. Go foward 5 years and i'm just now using some. I got the paws and the I love that dog from those pages. The stamp is from a new set coming out from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich co. Use something recycled on your card and link up and you could win!

A case of the cases for The Greeting Farm

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:34 AM 1 comments
I was wondering what kind of card I should make last night when I stumbled on The Greeting Farms blog (ok maybe not stumble, I go there every day). I saw that they have a challenge up for casing one of their farmers! I saw this card and fell in love. Isn't it darling?? I love her lil nose! So I decided to use this for my case card.
And this is my card! I tried to follow her layout pretty closely. I love how my card turned out even though its not nearly as awesome as Melissa's. I sure had fun playing along this week.
