Hello everyone!!
I have spent most of the today getting paper crafty - gotta love those days! Here is one of the cards I made today. I absolutely LOVE the new Specialty Designer Series Paper Sending Love Specialty from Stampin' Up! Every sheet has beautiful sparkles all over which create great texture. I am totally hoarding this paper. I bought it to use in the next card class, but am finding out that I keep limiting the amount that I want to use. It is all Valentines-y, red, pink, and sparkles! Love it! It also coordinates with the new With All My Heart stamp set! Which also coordinates with the new Extra Large Fancy Flower punch!!! So much matchy matchy - gotta love that. ;) And don't you just love the new trim border punch found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog??! Anyway... back to the card. I thought this card would be perfect for a wedding or a new little baby girl. I also tried out the poofy flower technique. Turned out ok. Thanks for stopping by!

stamps: with all my heart, well scripted
ink: pretty in pink, chocolate chip
paper: kraft, very vanilla, pretty in pink, send love specialty dsp
other: vintage button, hemp twine, scallop trim border punch

Getting Krafty

Hello everyone! Just a quick little card I made today. It is hard to see, but I used the Friendly Words jumbo wheel in versa mark all over the background of this card. It is actually quite nice in person. I am waiting for a big a package from Stampin' Up to come in the mail. I'm just itchin' to break out all of the new stuff. So I guess my newest of the old will have to do until that package arrives. I colored the flowers in Rose Red using a blender pen and went over the leaves and stem with the VersaMarker. Thanks for stopping by! Maybe next time I will have some new stamps to show off! :)
Paper: kraft
Ink: versamark, whisper white, black stazon, rose red
Stamps: friends 24-7, friendly words jumbo wheel
Other: rose red ribbon

Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge

When I first saw the colors for Kristina Werner's color inspiration challenge, I thought - um, those don't go together. Well, good thing she knows her colors. The colors turned out great! Definately nothing I would have chosen. Especially since there were 6 colors! I usually stick with 3. I made my own little swatch of patterned paper with the cute flowers from the For All You Do stamp set. I also used the little poka dot stamp from the same set to do the little coral piece. Love the color combo!! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp: For All You Do
Ink: Ruby Red, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, More Mustard
Paper: Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Whisper White
Other: white gel pen, Baja Breeze ribbon

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge

Whew, what a crazy month December was. I didn't have any time for some fun card making. Now with the holidays over and life back to normal, hopefully I can find more time to enjoy some paper crafty time. Dawn McVey has another great color challge to try. The colors are aqua, yellow, chocolate and vanilla. I decided to break out some of my favorite stamp sets. I haven't used them in a while. It was fun using the stamps to create a patterned background. The pattern makes me think of an old poineer dress. I had to throw some stitching on there, to keep with the pioneer dress theme. I just love this card. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: True Friend, Wanted, Damask Designs
Paper: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Baha Breeze, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Other: Button, String
