Party Owl

Happy Saturday! I have a fun and cute card for you today. I did this card for yesterday's challenge on splitcoast. It was to stamp a sentiment over and over somewhere in your background. It's a little hard to see but I used the Happy Birthday from A Word for You in Bashful Blue behind the owl. I used DSP from the Celebrations collection and pulled my colors from there. The owl has some fun dazzling diamonds on him and I gave him some wings using the Bird punch. The sentiment is from Party This Way stamped in Pacific Point. I hope you enjoy this cute owl who is ready to party! Today I'm off to a dinner party at a friends house. I'm making some homemade oreos for dessert. So far the cookies look good, now I just need to add the middle (the best part). If they look and taste good, I will post some pictures of them plus the recipe. If all works out, my plan is to package them up with a fun tag and some ribbon! I love being able to combine baking and stamping together. Have a great weekend! GO JETS!!!

Concord Crush Birthday

Hi everyone! Today I have a birthday card using the Love Impressions Rub-ons. I wanted to do something other than a valentine's card. I think I have plenty of them now! I used the Perfect Polka dots texture plate on the Concord Crush cardstock. I added a strip of DSP from the In Color pack. More polka dots! Then I used one of the heart balloon rub-ons onto a piece of crumb cake. Added a bow, a sentiment and some rhinestones and all done! As you can tell I am in LOVE with the modern label punch. I think I must use it on every card. It's just the perfect size to add to my cards. I hope you don't get sick of seeing it! That's it for today. I hope you have a great day!

Color Challenge

Hello. Today's card is for the color challenge that was on splitcoast yesterday. The colors were Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo. This color combo screams valentine's but I wanted to do something different since I've made a quite a few valentine's cards lately. So I decided to bring out Awash With Flowers and do some coloring. Oh how I love to color!! The main flower is colored with Melon Mambo and a touch of Cherry Cobbler. It was a little too bright so I needed to tone it down. Then I added some dazzling diamonds on top, just because. The other 2 flowers are colored with Pretty in Pink and a touch of Melon Mambo. I used the music wheel on the Pretty in Pink cardstock but I don't know if you can really see it in the photo. Then I added some lace ribbon and Cherry Cobbler seam binding.
I need to keep looking at this bright card to distract me from the snowy mess we have outside today. It wasn't enough snow today to get me out of work. However, I'm stuck at home anyway battling a cold. :( I'm hoping to be a little productive at home while I have the whole day off but I don't know if thats really going to happen when I can hardly breath. Although I think it gets me out of shoveling snow for the day, so I guess that's one good positive! Have a good day!

Every Moment

Hello! Today's card is for the sketch challenge on splitcoast yesterday. I really liked this sketch. It was fairly simple but it's definitely something I'll use again. I used the set Every Moment. This was the first time I used this set. I really like the flowers in it. Of course, I like the flowers in all the sets! :) I colored the flowers and butterfly in with some blender pens using Poppy Parade, Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip. I added some dazzling diamonds to the butterfly to make it glittery. I used the perfect polka dots texture plate on the Crumb Cake cardstock. Then I added a strip of Pear Pizazz and some Night of Navy ribbon. I really like this large ribbon. Except that it makes it difficult to mail this card. This will just have to be a hand delivered card. I hope you enjoyed my card today! Have a nice day!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday and new years. Mine was very good. Of course the time off from work goes by way too fast. I didn't get a chance to stamp as much as I would have liked over the break. Oh well, now that we're back into the swing of things, hopefully I'll get back to some cards. Today's card has no stamping at all on it. I used the designs from the new MDS downloads from the Mini. I used the Love Impressions paper and the hearts and "Hugs and Kisses" from the XOXO download. The great thing about this, is that I can make these images any size I want. I made one large heart in Blushing Bride, then 2 small hearts in Basic Gray. I made a larger sentiment so it would be the focus of the card. Overall a simple card for you today. Enjoy!
