Make it Monday #113

This is my first time joining in on the Make it Monday challenge.  The challenge this week was to use Perfect Pearls.  At least one product from Papertrey Ink is also required.  I used the Background Basics:  Botanical and plum pudding and raspberry fizz card stock.
I stamped the background stamps with Versamark and added Perfect Pearls in Pink Gumball, Sour Apple and Perfect Gold.  I finished my card off with a collage image from Alpha Stamps.

One Sweet Challenge-use a shape

I made this card for Sweet Pea's challenge blog.  The challenge for April is to make a shaped card.  We are exploring side step cards this month at Stamper's Quest, so I thought I would attempt the circular side step card.  I used Anna Marine's "Trick me Once" as the main image on this card.  The sentiment is from Hot Off the Press.

Ever wonder how you could make money crafting?

If you've wondered about this before or are considering starting your own on-line crafting business, I highly recommend this book from my friend and scrapbooking  professional, Lain Ehmann.  I've taken the class that this book is based upon and she offers a lot of information about starting a business on line, but broken down into an easily digestible step by step process.  Click here for more information.

SSS Challenge Fly

The folks at Simon Says Stamp are challenging stampers to "fly" this week and it just so happens that I made this little ATC for a swap with my Inky Fun Stampers yahoo group.

I used a polished stone piece for the background and also the swirl is die cut from polished stone.  The blue background is a monoprint I made using my new gelli plate.  The bird is stamped and embossed.  Both stamps are from I Brake for Stamps.

February ATCs

Continuing along with my month-themed ATC's here is what I made for February.  Stamp is from Red Lead.
And this is what I received:

I think we both focused on Valentine's Day.
