After a fun time away with family for the Thanksgiving holiday it is good to get back into the swing of things here at home....During this season on the year I find myself so very thankful for family, friends, and fun times....oh a yummy food of course!!
My card for today is based on the sketch for the Mojo Monday challenge. I enjoyed this sketch alot and can see myself using it over and over!!
The papers, the stamps, punches, and inks are all from Stampin Up!!
It is Mojo Monday time once again!! Today I decided to make a Round card....I think I am sorta hooked on them!! This one is for a friend who just lost her mother....I really wanted it to have a sympathy sentiment on the front but I just couldn't find one that fit....so that had to go inside the card.
I used my new Distressing Essentials kit from Stampin Up!! Itis must have for vintage cards....it comes with: 1 flat stamp, 4 distressing ink spots, 1 sanding block, an emery board, and 3 precision files. I love the precisions files....they are awesome for distressing the edges!! I can't believe I waited so long to order it.....order yours today!!!
Below you will find two cards made with the Pun Fun stamp set.....this a a great set to have with so many fun images and sentiments. When putting this set together I did not attach the sentiments with the images....I cut them separately and added them to the edge of the wood mounting block so that I could interchange the images and sentiments.....makes the set so much more versatile.
Get you set today and begin letting you creative juices flow as you create cards for those young ones in your life. Pun Fun can be ordered here!!
I was laying in bed this moring thinking about how long it has been since I made a card.....wow!! My last post here was for a CTD challenge....#109....that was 15 challenges ago!! I need to make time for some card making!!! Now that my Maine album is finished I think I will do better. I am heading to CA for a week with my hubby (business mostly but we are planning a few fun things too) so once I get back from there...then I will get my mojo back on!!
For today's card I used the Mojo Monday sketch (even though it's Friday) and the Color Throwdown color combo (Poppy Parade, Choc. Chip, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzaz). I flipped the sketch for my card. Stamped my main image in Choc. Chip, sponged my background with So Saffron, Poppy Parade, and Pear Pizzaz, and layered it on some designer paper to match. Added some brads, chipboard, ribbon, and stitching to finish it off. The stamp set is called Just Believe....a must have set!!!
Today I decided to combine the Color Throwdown Challenge with the 2sketch4you sketch challenge.....I know I know....it has taken me all week to get these challenges done!! I stamped this twice...once in Pear Pizzazz and once in Tempting Turquoise. I cut out the flowers from the Tempting Turquoise and glued them on to the Pear Pizzazz. I sponged the back ground with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight and layers the main image on Pear Pizzazz. On the background piece I used Daffodil Delight ribbon and scrunched it as I layered it across the Melon Mambo DP. I made this card for my sister in law who has a birthday on the 19th. Happy Birthday, Anne!!!
To is Thursday.....where did the week go!!! This is my first chance to stamp this week. I think I had more time to stamp while homeschooling!! Now that the kids are in school it seems like I am running all the time!! While I was homeschooling I was here every day and while the kids worked independently I would stamp....now I find my days filling up and cramping my scrapping time!! If I don't get more time in I might have to start seeing a therapist....lol....cause you know I always say stamping is my therapy!! Any way here is my card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge.....and even though it took me till Thursday to get my mojo on....I do love how it turned out!! I am so not ready for winter but I just had to use my new VERVE stamps that I won!! Here is what I used to make this card: snowflake embossing folder, Stazon black ink, Stampin UP!'s Riding Hood Red cardstock and ink, black gingham ribbon, Stampin Up!'s tag punch, chuncky red glitter from Stampin Up!, and some wooden snowflakes given to my by my dear friend Teresa Kline.
Soul Scrappers is hosting a sketch challenge right now.....here is my take on the challenge. I did the 1st page pretty much like the sketch but then I flipped it for the second page so that I could have a 2 page layout. These pictures are from our recent trip to Maine with our friends. Of course when you go to Maine you have to have some real....."lobstah"!!! If you haven't checked out the Soul Scrappers site.....Please do!! It is a great place to find inspiration, make new friends, and show off your work!!
