Birthday Wishes

This is my card for the different challenges I played this go around this week. I really like how the Tangerine Tango pops off of the page.
The color inspiration is from kwerner and the card sketch is from mojo monday.

The paper I used is from the Chocolate Chip Designer paper, So Saffron, and Tangerine Tango. The So Saffron ribbon is from the Sale A Bration mini catalog (only a few days left to order, hint hint). The "birthday wishes" is from the Wow Flowers stamp set. I stamped it in versa mark and then embossed it with white Stampin' Up! powder. I used the scallop edge puch for the detail at the bottom. And to attach the flowers that I cut from the die cut I used So Saffron brads.
Thanks for looking today, come back soon!!!

Envelope Scrapbook #2

I made another of these envelope scrapbooks and I will be giving this one to my mom when I get all three kids Spring pictures from the schools. These are very easy to make and you can make a few pretty fast once you get all of the measurements.

On this scrapbook I used the Designer Series Paper from the Sale A Bration mini called Delicate Dots. This paper has lots of nice spring colors and patterns.

The directions are to score an 8 1/2x 11 piece of cardstock at 2", 2 1/4", 6 3/4", and 7"

The inside is three business size envelopes, sealed, and then cut to 6", 7", and 8". The inserts are cut down by 3/4" so they slide easily in the envelope. Measure your envelope and cut the paper to fit and the embellish the envelopes. The hinge is made by cutting a piece to fit between two envelopes and snailing in place.

Splitcoast Challenge 3D 093 3/6/09

I made this really cool scrapbook from a challenge on Splitcoast. It was to make an envelope scrapbook. It was created by Paula Goff. I used the Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper for most of it and used some of the pink paper from the Sweet Always DSP. I think I will be putting pictures of my daughter and all of her favorite chocolates. I might need a bigger scrapbook!!

These were pretty simple to put together once I got all of the scoring done. The longest part was deciding on how to embellish the inside and the front.

Another challenge

Sparkly!!! This is for another of the great challenges that kwernerdesigns does each week. The colors are so simple I wasn't sure what I would do with them but I like how they turned out. It was hard not to add some color.
It just looks classic.

I used the black glitter from the Chunky Essentials from the Stampin' Glitter. I applied the glitter to a star from the Sticky Cut Letters. This is the first time I broke these out and I really like them! Very easy to use for a little bling!
The stamp set is Warm Words and I raised each piece on dimensionals for just a little extra effect. I then added just a few black brads to finish it off.

St. Patty's Day

I was just playing around with some ideas for a St. Patty's Day card. I don't usually send cards out for this but I thought I might this year.
I used the Sale a Bration set called Polka Dot Punches. I created the color on the white strip by "smooshing" an ink pad. I used Mellow Moss for the ink and the cardstock for the hearts. I stamped the hearts with Garden Green and the "Thanks" is stamped in Basic Black and it is from the stamp set called Thank You Kindly. I added some rhinestone brads for a little bling.

Funky Forest

This is the color inspiration that I used this week for my latest card creation. These colors are right up my alley!!

I used my new Stampin'Up! wheel called funky Forest. I love those little trees.

The sketch is from Diva Coffee Break Designs. As I have said in prvious posts that I am really starting to like using these different resources to get me going sometimes.

I hope you enjoy these.

Three Little Words....

I just got this stamp set today (Three Little Words) and wanted to see what I could make with it! I'm not too sure if I like it, they rarely turn out the way I think they will when I see it in my head. But this will do. I also got the Sizzlet die called Little Leaves.
The colors I used were Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White.
Thanks for looking!

Progressive Page

This is an example of a progressive page. You first start with a 6 x 6 page and then build up to an 8 x 11.5 page and then up to the big 12 x 12. It was a really easy progress actually.

This is a close up of the 6 x 6 that I started with first. The base is Whisper White and I used a flower stamp from Simply Said to make my own patterened paper. I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Kiwi Kiss for the ink colors. I versamarked the flower on the Kiwi Kiss after I stamped it with Real Red. I then just attached that to a piece of Real Red 8 x 11.5 card stock. I just added some embellishments from the die cut blooms.

This is a close up of the bottom right of the page that I made with a sentiment from Enjoy Every Moment and some more added die cut blooms. Now it's your turn to try the progressive page!
