Fabric Wreath

Happy Sunday afternoon!  I hope you have had a great weekend!  I spent all day yesterday cleaning my house, but today I sat down and made this wreath that has been floating in my head for quite a while!

I originally got the idea from Pinterest, but I added my own spin on it.  I used the Stampin' Up Flirtatious Designer Fabric and denim.  The denim is actually from an old pair of jeans I had laying around!  Yay, recycling!

I cut the fabric and denim into approximately 1.5 inch strips, then knotted them on a standard Styrofoam wreath form.  I had bought the wreath form over the holidays to make an ornament wreath, but that project went extremely wrong!  HAHA!

I cut the F from my Cricuit onto chipboard, then layered the designer paper on it and sanded the edges.  The designer paper is called Cheerful Treat and is now retired.

What do you think?  This is the first wreath I have ever made!

Birthday Wishes

I'm back with another card!  This is for today's Create with Connie & Mary challenge.  This week's challenge is a sketch and it definitely was a challenge!  The diagonals were scary at first, but my trick was to adhere the strips on the card stock, then line it up in my paper trimmer and cut off the excess.

I thought this would be the perfect sketch to showcase some of the new designer series paper in the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog!  The paper I featured here is called Floral District and is super cute!  I paired it with a simple sentiment from the set, Bring on the Cake.  I think it turned out pretty cute!

Supplies List:
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Floral District Dp
Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Baja Breeze Pleated Ribbon

Tea Cup Trio

Hi!  I'm finally back with some more cards to share!  This one is for Monday's Mojo Sketch and for Tuesday's ColourQ!

The colors for the ColourQ are: Soft Sky (I subbed with Pool Party since I no longer have any Soft Sky paper), Island Indigo (I subbed with the *new* Midnight Muse), Crushed Curry (retired In Color), Cameo Coral (retired), and Very Vanilla.  I hope I didn't make too many substitutions on this!  In all honesty, I thought the blue color in the Comfort Cafe DP was Island Indigo, but then I realized as I was putting my card together that it was Midnight Muse!

Let's talk about the ribbon I used.  It was originally the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon that has been retired.  I haven't gotten my order of new stuff, so I didn't have any Midnight Muse ribbon, I'm out of Pool Party and the Crushed Curry just didn't look right.  So... I took Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and dyed it Midnight Muse using my ink pad.  WARNING: I do not recommend doing this!  HAHA!  My fingers are still blue from the ink and even after letting the ribbon dry 24 hours, the ink is still coming off of it!  I'm sure there is a better way to do this and maybe using the satin ribbon was my ultimate problem because the ink doesn't seem to stick.

Aside from the ribbon disaster, the rest of the card came out pretty cute, I think!  Here is my supplies list:

Supplies List:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Cameo Coral (retired), Autumn Spice DP (retired), Comfort Cafe DP, Good Neighbor DP (retired)
Ink: Cameo Coral (retired), Midnight Muse
Stamps: Tea Shoppe
Accessories: Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon dyed Midnight Muse (retired), Stampin' Dimensionals, 1 3/8'' circle punch, 1 1/4'' circle punch

Happy Father's Day

 Hi!  It has been quite a while since I've posted... I have really missed stamping!  It has been a whirlwind with my studio's dance recital and all the activities that surround it!  I am finally back into my stamp room, though and am excited to receive some of my new sets from the 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalog!!

This uses a retired single stamp called Motorcycle.  My dad has 4 motorcycles, so it's only appropriate that I use it on his Father's Day card!  The designer paper is retired called Blueberry Crisp

I based my card off this week's Fall-to-Sketch over on clean&simple!

Supplies List:Paper: Sahara Sand, Pacific Point, Very Vanilla, Blueberry Crisp Dp (retired)
Ink: Blueberry Crisp
Stamps: Motorcycle (retired)
Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to have more to share soon!
