A Cup of Daisies

Hello, Shirley, here today with a card for the  Classy Cards N Such Gingham challenge. I love daisies and I love pink so that was how I started with the gingham challenge this week.


The papers I have used are white card stock and pink gingham.   Did I tell you I really like pink?  Oh, I thought so!

I stamped this Inky Antics Daisy Bouquets image on white card stock  and colored it with markers.

I used the following Spellbinders dies behind my main image Large Scalloped Ovals, Floral Ovals,  and  the A2 Filigree Delight oval. I decorated the ovals and my corners with White Pearls.

The border die I used is the Beautiful Borders die by  Our Daily Bread Designs.

I added the  string of pearls from  my stash and added the White Satin String. I tied little bows and colored the pearls pink for the center.

I hope you will gather up some gingham paper or ribbon and join us for the challenge. You can always use your favorite color of gingham if you like.

Thank you, for coming by and taking a look at my card.

Girly Gingham

Good morning! It's Jenny posting today! For the Gingham challenge this week, all I could think of were baby cards (especially baby girl cards, as it seems everyone around me is having girls this summer).  Unfortunately, when I actually need a card, is when I find I have the most trouble making one.  After a bit of procrastination, this ended up being a quick and fun card to make.


I began by cutting the Memory Box Precious Mobile die three times with white, pink and yellow card stock. The white mobile was used as the base, and then I cut out pieces of the pink and yellow, and layered them on top to add dimension.  I could have colored them with Copics as I did with the strings, but I like how the dangling hearts and stars match the other paper.

I used two different sizes of the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die, and popped up each of the two Floral layers using Joy! Foam Pads.  The Spellbinders Floral Oval made the perfect lacy backdrop for a girl card.The yellow gingham oval was cut using the central oval from the Spellbinders Filigree Delight die.

To add a bit of glitz, I glued rhinestones using Art Institute's glue with Ultra-fine tip to some of the hearts and stars on the mobile. This tip is perfect for small areas.

I hope you decide to join us for our Gingham challenge this week!

Gingham Style

Joy here, today at Classy Cards 'n Such, Beverly challenged us to show off some gingham. One of my favorite patterns - just look in my closet and you will see!


The paper is from Secret Garden, by Graphic 45, and the sentiment is from Inky Antics called Mighty Tower.

I made the flower called Mini Petals by Susan's Garden from and colored it like a pansy. Susan's Garden Tool Kit allows me to make the flower  very quickly.

A die called Beach Sprig, by Memory Box, was added to the back of the flower.

I stamped the sentiment and cut out with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.

We would like to see what you would do a this Gingham Challenge.  Why not challenge a friend to play along with you? One of you could win a great gift!  Make your project and link it on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

It Is Well

Hello everyone! It's Jenn and I'm back with a card I created for our challenge this week at Classy Cards N Such.

Our challenge this week is to use some form of gingham on your card. As soon as I saw this challenge I knew that I wanted to pull out my Secret Garden paper pad by Graphic 45. It's one of my absolute faves and it has several different shades of gingham paper to choose from!




I started my card with a 5.5" x 5.5" square lavender cardstock base. I added a sheet of lavender gingham designer paper from Secret Garden paper pad. I wanted the paper to stand out just a bit from the base so I inked the edges with distress ink.

Before adhering the gingham paper to the base I added three strips of Black Polka Dot Trendy Tape diagonally across the paper.

For my next layer I cut a rectangle of lavender cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Dots embossing folder. I added distress ink to the edges. 

For my focal point of the card I used Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven and white cardstock to create an elegant label to stamp my sentiment on.

I added Black Pearls to the centers of my stamped flowers and for finishing touches I added a black swirl in the lower corner.
