Color Challenge Monday

Candice and I decided to use colors from some of the collections in the book. I was immediately drawn to the colors from the Build a Flower kit. I also had not used my ticket corner punch recently and thought it would be fun to punch the corners also. I had so much fun working with these colors. I challenge you to look through the book and find a group of colors that you are attracted to and create a card.

Stamps: Simply Said Paper: Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, Lovely Lilac, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, Lovely Lilac, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi Accessories: Gray velvet ribbon, Gray Dew Drops, ticket corner punch, slit punch, word window punch, aquapainter, Zots mini glue dots, sticky tape, dimensionals.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Sketch Saturday

I am busy preparing for my trip to Italy. I have been making cards and posting them early so you have something to look at while I’m gone (really I just don’t want you to forget me 🙂 ). I thought it might be fun to share with you some card sites/blogs that have sketch challenges each week so that you could check them out and play along. Having the sketch really makes it so easy to put a card together quickly. If you use a sketch I would love to see the card you made. Consider also posting your cards on a site like Splitcoaststampers. It is a great site for inspiration.

I haven’t been to this website for a while and I recently saw several cards on other blogs using their sketches so I decided to check it out again. I saw a couple of sketches I like but went with this one as there was something about the simplicity that appealed to me. I also immediately thought of the Embrace Life set and the Ginger Blossom DS paper which I hadn’t used in a while. Here is the sketch and what I created.

Stamps: Embrace Life, Noteworthy (retired) Paper: Cameo Coral, River Rock, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DS Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red Accessories: Ruby Red brads, photo corner punch, dimensionals, sponge.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Stinkin Cute

I hope everyone is doing well. My Tuesday was horrible, I got a bug and let me tell you it got the best of me. Thank goodness it was only a 24 hour one, but the next day I had zero energy.
I have to send out a thank you to Tonya for having her show on Sunday. She was also able to take advantage of the extra Hostess Dollars, way to go Tonya. Well anyway here is one of the projects that we did at her show on Sunday, as you can tell I have really been using that Wild Wasabi paper (promotion for April). Thanks for taking a peek and I will see some of you on Friday.

Stamp Set: Pun Fun Card Stock: Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Bashful Blue, and DSP Summer Picnic Accessories: Brads, Metal Edge Tag, Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Pure Color Pencils, and Crafters’ Tool Kit.

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

I went in a little different direction with this card. I saw the card on page 21 of the catalog and thought it would be fun to recreate it. I knew I had some lace so I pulled it out and went from there. When I had the card laid out on my table in front of me it just seemed too plain for me. remember an OLD set that I had that I had not inked up much so I pulled it out. The card then came together very quickly!

Stamps: Time Well Spent, Lace & Ribbons (retired) Paper: Perfect Plum, Sage Shadow, White
Ink: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum Accessories: Lace, Spica Clear Glitter Pen, Crafter’s Tool Kit, scallop and 1 3/8″ circle punches, dimensionals

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
