Mojo Hearts

Hi! Can you believe it's the last day of January? Wow... this year is already flying by! I got a chance to get inky in my stamp room today. This card is for today's Mojo Monday Sketch and last week's Play Date Cafe challenge to make a card with black, white, and a splash of lilac.

I pulled out a retired color, Lovely Lilac for this card and paired it with the three hearts from I {heart} Hearts! The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes which is one of my favorite "basic" sets. I recommend it to everyone!

The designer paper is from the Neutrals Designer Paper Pack. I used the Three Heart Punch to punch out my hearts. Everything else is pretty straight forward!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

I made a second card... woo hoo! This is for today's Color Throwdown: Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Marina Mist and for Sweet Sunday's Sketch!

Marina Mist is a very pretty color, but I have to admit that I haven't really used it much! Actually, I bought the ribbon a long time ago and just opened it today! I really love this combo and it just said "vintage" to me. I had to pull out one of my "go to" sets... even though I haven't gone to it lately, VINTAGE VOGUE. It just has so many possibilities.

The bigger flower is stamped directly onto the scallop oval layer. I stamped and cut out both the friends sentiment and the smaller flower. The friends layer is mounted on dimensionals and the flower is simply attached to the oval with an Old Olive brad.

I really love how this turned out!

Perk Up!

Wow, it has been waaay too long since I stamped! I ended up with a snow day, so I had to get my fingers inky! Today is Wednesday and that means there is a new color combo over on the Color Dare! This week's combination is Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink, & Perfect Plum! I loooove it!

I struggled with this card because I've been away for so long! I pulled out the Morning Cup set which I haven't really used that much. I thought it was fitting for this color combo! The sketch is for today's sketch challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers.

Nothing too advanced on this card. The coloring was done with my Stampin' Write markers. I used Jet Black Stazon Ink and stamped on watercolor paper to get a smooth coloring effect.

Alright, I am off to see what else I can create! Have a great day!

Kissing Hearts

Hi everyone! Happy Monday... I can't believe it's 2011! Whoa! Where does time go? I hope you all had a fabulous holiday. It's back to the studio for me today, but I needed some stampin' therapy to get me through! HAHA!

This is for today's Mojo Monday sketch and for today's Clean & Simple challenge over on SCS to use the kissing technique.

I used the I {heart} Hearts set and inked up the solid heart in Pretty in Pink. I then inked up the wood grain patterned heart in Real Red and stamped it directly on the solid heart stamp. Then I stamped it on the circle! Very easy and such a great visual effect!

I once again am using the retired Sending Love designer paper from last year's mini. I just can't justify buying the new dp until this one is gone!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
