I am so excited!!!
This card is for today's sketch over at Sketches by Tamara and for today's Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoast Stampers!
The Ways to Use it challenge was called Frugal Finds and we were to use supplies that we got a good deal on. Well, I got those prima flowers for free... someone gave them to me! That's as frugal as you can get, right? I also think using designer papers as embellishments is frugal because you get a lot in a pack and it only takes a little on a card, so it lasts for a long time! (sometimes too long... haha!)
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Cameo Coral, Pink Flamingo Dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Prima Flowers (by Prima), Large Oval Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Filagree Brad
*All supplies Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted!
I hope you have a wonderful day!!! I'm not sure I will be updating my blog until I get back on Sunday evening!!!

This was a really fun challenge! I went digging through my designer paper scraps and pulled out this old paper from a couple of years ago! I think this was some of the first designer paper I bought from Stampin Up! It has some great colors and I am ready for some springy cards!

Stamps: Bella Blossoms
Ink: Old Olive, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black

I decided to use some colors that I probably wouldn't put together on my own! I got this color combo from the Scraptitude website! I love it, you should go check it out!
I pulled out my Send a Celebration set that I haven't used in a really long time and paired it with Tagger Dozen. Both sets are retired from Stampin' Up.

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch!
I pulled out my Sweet Stems set that I feel like I haven't used very much and then I found this dp by Basic Grey that really matches well, so that's how I came up with the color combination!
The flowers are colored with a Rose Red & Pretty in Pink marker. Since I don't have a Kiwi Kiss marker, I used my ink pad and a blender pen! It works great!
I accented the ribbon with some of the Filgree Brads! They are so fun!
Paper: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Watercolor Paper, Sultry dp (by Basic Grey)
Stamps: Fundamental Phrases & Sweet Stems
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Filgree Brads, Rose Red Ribbon, Pretty in Pink Ribbon, Kiwi Kiss Ribbon, Pretty in Pink & Rose Red Markers, Blender Pen
I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!!!

I found this card on Splitcoast Stampers and thought it was so cute that I would CASE it!
CASEing can take on many different faces... you can copy the card EXACTLY, or just use it as inspiration. I used the same layout idea, but I did change up the colors and the designer paper... I also did my sentiment differently.
These cards were super easy to make and I really enjoyed making them!
Paper: Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, old Valentine's paper by SU (don't know the exact name)
Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Chocolate Chip & Whisper White
Accessories: Small & Large Oval Punch, 3 Heart Punch, Dimensionals
I hope you have a fantastic day!!!!
