The Fifth Element - FIRE


I am back with my entry for the FIRE Stage of the Fifth ElementChallenge at the Fantasy Blog.

I went with the Elegy Collection from ScrapBerry’s which was one of my first Russian papers. Flaming Red and black background paper with roses make the base, and two of my three flowers were cut from the same collection.

I have used the following:
CHIP 15024 and DIES FD-473, FD-302, FD-476, FD-457, and FD-338.

I am also adding my card to this month’s Three out of Nine Challenge at the Yar-SK Blog.

From the center horizontal row, I used flowers, die cutting, and lace.

And, for the Treasure Box Challenge this month at the Charmed Blog, I am adding this card.

I have used lace, chip, heat embossing, die cutting, and red and silver beads as topping from the required elements.

Finally, I am adding my card to this month’s Miszmasz Open Challenge requiring CHIP.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Take care,

3/9 Bright Monochrome - Without Pink

Hello, Everyone!

I am joining the Bright Monochrome Challenge at the ScrapClub-EKBlog with this GREEN Spring Card.

Feathers, heat embossing, and even two kinds of ribbon – mesh and butterflies – all GREEN.

I have also used the Left Vertical Row in the Three out of NineChallenge at the Yar-SK Blog this month: Ribbon, Flowers, White.

And finally crossing my fingers for this month’s challenge at the LadyBug Blog: Without Pink

This one requires flowers, of course, die cutting, and wood in any form. I have a green tinted wood panel as the top base of the card.

I have used the following LadyBug Dies:

0028 / 0129 / 0228 / 0299 / 0079 / 0029 / 0296

Not to mention THIS lovely chippie from ArtLines Pro.

Thanks, everyone, for sticking together doing what we do best.
See you soon!

The Fifth Element - WATER


I’m back for Stage 2 of The Fifth Element Challenge at the Fantasy BlogWATER.

 I'm sure we all have great family vacation memories that we will never again take for granted given the current quarantine situation. I made a card hoping that someone will get it as a great reminder of those sweet memories on the shore.

I used THIS lovely frame die, and I engineered my own Shaker.

These are the other dies I used:


This is also my second time using a MoNa Design Collection (Paradise Island) for the Choice of the Month Challenge at the VSK Blog.

Again, I have used a sheet of the background paper for the base of the card.
And I love the cute die cuts that have “washed ashore”.

The Choice of the Month Challenge is open until May 6. Please check it out!

And, please head over to the Fantasy Blog to see the inspiration for this Second Stage.

And check out THIS Jewelry Box that I made previously with this collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Fifth Element - EARTH


As Spring rolls around, it’s time to get the garden gloves on. The roses and flower beds in the front, and some herbs, veggies, and berries in the back. Our Mother Earth has always provided the soil and sun and the harvest has always been bountiful.
This is my entry for the Fifth Element Challenge at the Fantasy Blog.

I have used the following dies:





And this chip:

I knew right away that I would use this
Vintage RecipesCollection from MoNa Design. It also happens to be the Choice of the Month at the VSK Blog, and I will also add my card THERE.

You have until May 6 to join the Choice of the Month.

Take care, Everyone!

VSK Choice of the Month

Hi Everyone!

CraftPaper is the Choice of the Month at the VSK Blog. I’m participating with this card made with the Cherry Orchard Collection.

Who has time for all this fussy cutting?

 Actually, we all do right now, and this is what’s helping me get through the days locked up at home.

Remember, Peeps, the secret is a fresh blade, slow and steady. And please be careful and wear protective eye wear. The very tip of the blade has broken off on me, and sometimes it snaps off and bounces. Look out!

The back panel had blossoms on the left, and I wanted to “continue the cascade” of blossoms down the card.

I layered and layered to get a feel of the breeze on the blossoms.

Sweet chippie here from ArtLines.

You still have time to join the Choice of the Month.

I will also add my card to the Fantasy April Gallery.

I’ve used the following dies.

We will all get through this together by helping our healthcare workers doing what we do best. #StayHome

Hugs to everyone!
