Card Positioning Systems (CPS#74) Challenge...

Hey all!

I will post about my experience with CHA in a while but I wanted to post my take on a card sketch over at CPS (Card Positioning Systems). I have not made a card by using a sketch and thought this was fun after seeing all the others (boy, the stuff you can put on a little card! LOL!!).
So here's mine...

Supplies used:

Stamp - JustRite Stamps
Patterned Paper - TaDa Creative Studios
Cardstock - Die Cut With a View
Chipboard accent - LaserLine
Circle Cutters - Coluzzle, Fiskars 2" circle punch
Paint - Acrylic Dabbers (Ranger Ink)
Ink - Stampin' Up

It's a very simple design. I'm really liking these paper flowers I have been folding...they're all 2" circles. Then I snuck in a little "H" in the middle. These papers are new TaDa papers introduced at CHA last weekend ~ aren't the colors beautiful?!

Thanks for looking!!

CHA Sneak Peek - TaDa Creative Studios (#2325)

Here's the sneak peek for TaDa Creative Studios!!! Hope you all like them as much as I do!

Well, what do you think?

Collection comes with coordinating tags and pockets have been laser cut, as opposed to die cut. No pesky white tabs! All folds are scored for easy assembly.

Here's what I did with the "Daddy 'O" line:

Card Frame Kits by TaDa Creative Studios are plain die cut cardstock tri-fold bases that come with assorted frames that can be layered over the photo window. What a great idea to send photos of the kids to loved ones! Once received, the card turns into a free standing personalized photo frame! GO GREEN!!! LOL!!

I used the kit to make a "Cute Sweet" card! These papers are, of course, TaDa Creative Studios too! AND they're cute & sweet...don't you agree? LOL!!

Playing with the background design of those "dots" - I pop-dotted a few as you can see on the side picture of the Card Frame Kit. Love this can use it in SO SO MANY ways!

The best part for you CHAers, come join Tracey Wilder as she will do demos on Saturday from 10-12 and 1-3.

Please take a peek at my fellow TaDa DTers' blog like Julie's & Tracey's for more eye candy!
