Mashing it Up!

Hi! Happy Friday!!! Are you happy it's the weekend? I am!! Even though I have a busy one!!

This card is for three challenges:

#1 - Sketch Challenge from Splitcoast Stampers

#2 - Free For All Challenge from Splitcoast Stampers to use at least 2 different stamps from 2 different stamp companies. I used Petals & Stems from Verve Visual, Framed with Love from Stampin' Up, Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink!

#3 - ColourQ Challenge to use Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla.

This was one of those cards that began as a disaster, but then I ended up loving it in the end! I love when that happens!!! The flower petals are each stamped on Very Vanilla, then cut out and mounted on dimensionals.

All of the designer paper is retired, Prints Pack & Urban Garden.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!!!!

Merry Blingmas...

Hello! Happy Tuesday... I hope you are having a wonderful start to your week!

Today's card is entitled "Merry Blingmas" because I went just a little overboard on the bling.. haha! But as I always say, you can never have too much bling!

This card is for today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers to use Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and Pretty in Pink. I also added in Early Espresso as a neutral.

It's also for today's Mercy's Sketch Challenge! She always has fantastic sketches and today is no exception!

When I saw this color combo, I immediately thought CHRISTMAS, so I pulled out my trusty Dasher stamp and this is what I came up with. I wasn't sure I liked it at first, but it's growing on me.

The Pretty in Pink dp is from the Welcome Neighbor SAB paper pack. The snowflakes were embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. Everything else is pretty self explanatory!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

I made a card.....

in my new stamp room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooo hooo!!! As I mentioned yesterday, we just moved into a new house last weekend. It's definately a fixer upper. It was a foreclosure, so we've had a to do a lot of work just to make it livable. I think it sat for over a year... maybe two!

Anyway, I finally got into my new stamp room today... I will post pictures of it later... it's AWESOME!

This card is for several challenges (as usual)...

#1 - Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge from yesterday and ways to use it challenge today to use buttons! Lord knows I have enough of them!

#2 - Tuesday's ColourQ to use Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, and Early Espresso.

Now, since we've had so many expenses with the house, I haven't been able to place my first order from the new catalog yet... booo! So, I pulled out Eastern Blooms... a set I really like, but don't use enough! The designer paper is from various dp sets... Print Patterns (hostess) and Pink Flamingo (retired).

I used my Stampin' Write Markers to make my image three toned. The ribbon is non-SU as I didn't have any Tempting Turquoise ribbon that was thin enough for this card. The button is also non-SU. Everything else is though!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
