Saturday Challenge 146- 2nd try

This is my second shot at the sketch challenge from Stamping 411. I had an intresting idea and wanted to try it out. Actually it is several ideas. I made the paper flowers from the boho blossoms punch

. The box uses the matchbox die (i got that die just last week and I LOVE it.) I used rich razzleberry for the outside sleeve, the inside base of the box is old olive. I used bermuda bay, whisper white, and taken with teal for the flat pieces on the top of the box I used cottage wall DSP for the flowers and i used white taffeta ribbon. I like working in minature it has been fun. I did 'cheat' a little on the bow. I tied the bow and then adhered it to the box with a glue dot. I really like how well it came together. I also love the texture folders SU has the texture they put onto the cardstock just rocks. Thanks Stamping 411 for the awesome sketch!

Stamping 411 challenge: #146

It is time for another sketch challenge at Stamping 411. I have used the bermuda bay with the cottage wall DSP before and I loved the look, so that is how I started on my card. I just got the vintage vogue stamp set Thursday so I have been wanting to ink it up and put it on a card *LOVE IT*. This sketch is so awesome ! I just love the scallops AND the ribbon with a bow. (I don't use full bows very often. I also used dazzling diamonds on the center of the small flower because it looked a little naked and was just crying out for SOMETHING. :D

Pals Paper Arts Challenge 36

I have discovered a awesome site that has cool challenges to play with. This week's challenge was a color challenge: to use lavendar lace, barely banana, and certainly celery. I decided to use the SU Tea Party DSP because it has those colors. I had fun dreaming this card up. Once I got the idea sketched out it was simple to pull everything out, cut, stamp and put it together.

After I created the front of the card I got to thinking that the inside needed dressing up a bit. I was not quite sure what I would do at first, but I finally decided to echo parts of the front on the inside to have a 'common theme' going on with the card. Now I know the card will not be able to go through the standard postal mailing, but I think it would be so awesome to put inside a gift for a wedding shower or an annivesary.

Randy's birthday card

I got this idea from another lady I met at my SU! demonstrator's house the last time I went to a class.

I had made a different birthday card for Randy, but my mom said that I needed to do something at least somewhat funny for him. Well I remembered the other card and set out to make my own version. Emily laughed when I showed it to her. :D

Saturday Sketch Challenge 145

This will possibly be the annivesary card I give to my parents for their 29th wedding annivesary. I wanted to try out some of the patterns from the Sweet Pea patterns pack that I hadn't used yet. I love this stamp set, but I am just not quite sure I like the way this card came together.

DCBD 171

I like the colors that I used on this card. Plus I love, Love, LOVE the words I used and the embossing folder. The embossing folder gives such crisp texture. It is a wonderful tool. I am also loving the taffeta ribbon. I will be sad when the soft suede color is retired because I love it.

Sunday Sketch Challenge

I used Heather's sketch for the inspiration for my card. I am pretty excited about this card except that I had to keep taking stuff up so that I could layer stuff under it. Oh, well. I love the card.
