Mojo Monday!

Hi everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend... mine was great! I got to spend some time with friends and family... too bad it's over!!

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday sketch and for last week's ColourQ!

I really love these colors together and I am sad neither one of them made it into one of the new color families. The colors are Groovy Guava, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla, Kraft, & Basic Black.

I pulled out the new Elements of Style set because I thought it would look great in these colors!

I wasn't sure if I would like the ribbon bow plus the button with the silver elastic cord, but I do!

I colored the main image with ink and blender pens. Everything else is pretty simple!

Happy Father's Day!

Hello! Happy Thursday!!

I have a really hard time with masculine cards, so when Stampin' Up came out with this single stamp, Motorcycle, I knew I had to buy it! Especially since my dad and brother are both into Harleys!

I came up with this card by first checking out the Pal's Paper Arts challenge today which is to use Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Old Olive. I had this old designer paper that matched that color combo, except it uses Wild Wasabi instead of Old Olive and it has More Mustard... I hope that's okay!

The sketch is from yesterday's Sweet Sketch Wednesday! I flipped it to accomodate the image.

This was a really quick cards to put together and doesn't really have anything fancy on it, because let's face it.. most men wouldn't know the difference between a time consuming card and one that took 15 minutes to make! HAHA!

For All You Do.. Thank You!

Happy Wednesday!!! I hope you are having a great week! I sure am since I've had time to stamp every morning so far this week! I think it's because I demand it in order to keep my sanity as the end of the year recital draws closer at the studio!

This card is for today's Color Throwdown & the sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers!

I wasn't sure about how this card was going to turn out when I first started it, but I really love how it came out in the end!

I pulled out some old designer paper for the Baja Breeze panel, it's from the retired Urban Garden designer paper. It's some of my favorite!

The Old Olive panels is from the Sale-a-Bration paper pack that matches the Good Neighbor stamp set.

I stamped the flowers on whisper white, cut them out, and mounted them on dimensionals. Everything else is pretty self explanatory!

Because Nice Matters...

First, I want to say that two cards in two days is unheard of lately.. haha!! I also haven't used ribbon on my cards for the past two days which is also unheard of!

Today's card is for the Tuesday Morning Sketch.

I decided to pull out my old trusty Upsy Daisy and paired it with the new Elements of Style humming bird. The sentiment is from an old hostess set called Sweet Little Sentiments.

I used the last of my small Filgree brads... I only have two of the large ones left! I might have actually used up a whole thing of brads! WHOA!

The humming bird is stamped on whisper white with kiwi kiss ink, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals. Everything else is pretty self explanatory!

Beautiful Watercolor Trio

Good Monday morning everyone! I vowed this weekend that I would never leave my stamp room for so long again, so I got up this morning, had my cup of coffee, and got started on this card!

The sketch is from Kitchen Sink Stamps. I really liked how this sketch had a place for buttons, or in my case, some jumbo brads!

I pulled out my new Watercolor Trio stamp set that is found in the Summer Mini Catalog. I think this is going to end up being one of my new "go to" sets. It's so easy to use!

I made my image different colors by inking the image with my Stampin' Write Markers, then huffing on the stamp before I stamped it on my oval.

The butterflies were stamped in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White paper, cut out, and then mounted on dimensionals. Since a full sized dimensional was too big, I just cut them in half to fit the image.

Everything on this card is Stampin' Up except for the scalloped oval die cuts that I used.

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Lovely Flowers designer paper
Ink: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Stamps: Watercolor Trio
Accessories: 5/8'' jumbo brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Write Markers, Scallop Oval Dies

Hi everyone! Long time, no stamp.. but the good news is that I have spent the whole weekend making up for lost time. I think I have completed 8 cards this weekend and I will be showing them to you through out the week! Of course, I will also be stamping through out the week too... at least I hope!

I borrowed this stamp from my mom, Enjoy Every Moment. I had never used it before and I think it makes a really cute card!

I used the color combo from this week's Color Throwdown. I really love the colors this week... Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, & Kiwi Kiss! I really miss Kiwi Kiss and I had hoped it would be coming back, but it isn't... it makes me a little sad!

The "Enjoy" sentiment was stamped and then cut out and mounted on dimensionals. Everything else is pretty self explanatory!

Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Tropical Oasis dp, Thoroughly Modern dp, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Accessories: Silver Brads, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Scallop Circle Die Cuts(non-su)
