Anything Goes With a Twist at Paper Ala Mode

This week's Paper Ala Mode challenge is Anything Goes with a twist.  The twist is to use more than one type of media on your card.   Our sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies, and I chose this wonderful Daisy Birdbath image for my card.


I used Copic markers, chalk, and glitter.  I loved the image so much that I made a second card.


I cut an oval out of the front of the card and popped the image up on pop dots behind the front so that it's recessed a little.  Come an play with us!

Things are shaping up at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  We got such a lovely snowfall on Thursday night, so I had a snow day from work on Friday.  I spent most of it in my craft room making cards.  The temps warmed up enough yesterday to make the roads passable so I was able to get out and get my grocery shopping done today.  Today will be spent in the kitchen!

The challenge at Paper Ala Mode this week is to make a card that is anything different from your normal A2 sized card.  There are some fun shaped cards to see over there!  Our sponsor is Star Stamps, and I used this adorable Goldfish Fishing stamp to create a center step card.


I hope you will come play with us!

Paper Ala Mode Valentines/Love

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge is all about Valentines and Love this week.   Beccy's Place is sponsoring us, and she has some super cute images in this category.   I used Wild Hippo to create this valentine.


I used a heart die for the background and purple glitter on some of the hearts.  The words on the candy heart were done with a pink gel pen.  I think this hippo is adorable.

Come see what everyone else did because there are some seriously wonderful samples there!  Play along with us too - you could win some awesome prizes!
