Happy New Year

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone!  Sorry, I didn't post yesterday, but I had to get all the Christmas decorations down and clean the house.  My house was DESTROYED and I couldn't take it any longer!  I know most people leave their decorations up until New Year's Day, but I have a big Italian dinner to attend and I won't want to do it when I get home, then the following day, I have to go back to work!

This card is for two challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches

Sunday Stamps which was a color challenge this week to use Night of Navy, More Mustard, and Sahara Sand

This is a pretty simple card that doesn't use many supplies, but I wanted to show those of you who may be new to Stampin' Up that it doesn't take much to make a card cute and fabulous!

Snowflake Thanks

Happy Friday!  Normally I would be super excited for Friday, but this week it just means that my holiday break is coming to an end.  I have made myself promise that I will try to stamp at least one thing each day.  It keeps me sane, you know?

I am continuing my "thank you" theme with this card using the set Snowflake Soiree which I bought to make Christmas cards, but never got around to!  This is actually the FIRST time this set has seen ink and I bought it a while ago.

This is for two challenges:
1.  The Friday Mashup to use the colors Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Basic Black, and Whisper White and to also use snowflakes!

2.  Stampin' Royalty Sketch 

I wasn't sure how I was going to like this card, but I really love how it turned out!  You can't see in the picture, but the back panel is dry embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and then the small Pool Party panel is embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.

Paper: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Snowflake Soiree, Because I Care (retired hostess)
Ink: Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Basic Black
Accessories: Corner Rounder, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Midnight Muse Stitched Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones, Curly Label Punch

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks a Million

Two cards in one day... woo hoo!  Here's another thank you card.  I have all this "new" paper that I had gotten when the catalog first released, but I hadn't really used!  I should be punished!!  I love this color combo that I came up with by using the International Bazaar Designer Paper.  I used: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango (not a color I normally gravitate to), and Lucky Limeade.  The designer paper also has some Pool Party in it.

This sketch is from Splitcoast Stampers and is the sketch challenge from 12/19/12.

Supplies Used:
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, International Bazaar Dp
Stamps: World Treasures, Word Play
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Pacific Point Stitched Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Decorative Label Punch, Orange Rhinestones (non-SU)

Thanks for stopping by!

Patio Party Thanks

Hello!  Wow, have I really been away since September?  Life has it's way of going crazy and taking time away from hobbies and that is exactly what has happened to me!  I have been crafting some, just haven't had time to update the blog.

I am in need of a lot of thank you cards for post-Christmas, so I needed to get started on them.  I am hoping to update more as I really miss my friends in blog-land!

This is a simple card and I ran out of daylight to take a good picture, so that's why it looks kind of funky!

Here are the details!

Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Patio Party dp
Ink: Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit
Stamps: Best of Everything, Bitty Banners
Accessories: Summer Starfruit Stitched Ribbon, Circle Nesties, Itty Bitty Banners Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

Have a great day! :)
