More Pink......

I thought I was a little tired of pink after "pink week" on Splitcoast Stampers, but I discovered this SU Designer Paper today and HAD to make a card with it. Since I'm still trying to get some birthday cards together for my mom, I figured this would be a really quick card. I really like the softness and elegance of this, even though it's a very simple card.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: It's Your Birthday (SU)
Ink: Pretty In Pink
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette (SU), White
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Embossing Folders, Ribbon, Dimensionals, SU DP

Amethyst Birthday Card

I just can't get enough of this "Inspired By Nature" set from Stampin' UP! It is so versatile - you can either use it as a silhouette, or use every color combination you can think of. I used Stampin' UP! markers to color the stamp, sprayed the stamp with a fine mist of water, then stamped the image on watercolor paper. I misted the stamp one more time and stamped this image. Since I am needing some birthday cards, I added the "HB" image and some brads for the finishing touch. This is Sketch #190 from the Splitcoast Stampers site.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Inspired By Nature, It's Your Birthday (SU)
Ink: Almost Amethyst
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, White, SU DP, Watercolor Paper

Happy Easter Art and Mom!

Art, I know you check every day to see if I have uploaded any new cards and then tell mom that there are new ones! Sorry I'm not better about uploading them as I make them....
I didn't make a card all week, but combined three of the week's challenges on this card. Monday's Technique Lover's Challenge was to ink up the negative side of an embossing folder before you run it through the Cuttlebug, and I used Bordering Blue ink with the Script Embossing Folder. Wednesday's Sketch Challenge looked like an awesome one, so I used it as the layout. Saturday's Inspiration Challenge piece was really beautiful and reminded me of blues and ocean themes.....this is what I came up with.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: All Holidays Petal Prints
Ink: Bordering Blue
Cardstock: Bordering Blue, Textured Basic Gray, White
Other Supplies: Twine, Plastic Embellishments, Cuttlebug, Script Embossing Folder, Foam Dots, Distressing Tool

Mostly Krafty

Tuesday's Color Challenge was to create a card using Orchid Opulence, Sage Shadow, and Kraft. Let's just say that Orchid Opulence is not a color I EVER reach for when making a card, so I wanted to use just a touch of it. I really like the look of plain layers and embossed layers of the same cardstock. Although this is a very simple card, I like that there is just a little bit of elegance, too.
Supplies used:
Stamps: Infinite Goodness
Ink: Basic Black
Cardstock: Kraft, Sage Shadow
Other Supplies: Cuttlebug, Textile Texture Embossing Folder, Ribbon, Foam Dots, SU Markers


Oh, I really don't like this card! I love the colors, the layout, the texture.....but it looks like it's wearing pigtails! I was dared to upload it to my gallery on SCS or I probably wouldn't have!
Supplies used:
Stamps: True Friend
Cardstock: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Ivory
Ink: Night of Navy
Other Supplies: Punches, Brads, Non-SU DP, Paper Piercing Tool, Cuttlebug, Textile Texture Embossing Folder

Faux Cloisonne?

Well, Faux Cloisonne is a technique that I had never heard of until it was the Technique Lover's Challenge a couple of weeks ago. I thought....Ugh, I don't want to spend the time learning a new technique. I'm too tired. Well, basically you stamp your image on glossy magazine pages that include the colors you want then gold emboss your image. You cut out your embossed images and put them on a darker card stock. My flowers were stamped on the front cover of the most recent Good Housekeeping magazine and the leaves were stamped on the pages that included green bushes. I used foam dots to create some depth and thought it would look even better with a stamped background.
Supplies used:
Stamps: Floral, Natural Beauty, Doodle This, Wonderful Words
Cardstock: Brushed Gold, Always Artichoke
Ink: Always Artichoke, Versamark
Other Supplies: Magazine Pages, Gold Embossing Tinsel, Gold Embossing Powder, Foam Dots, Brads

Recipe Swap

This is my Recipe Swap for the 6" X 6" swap being done by some of the Challenge Chasers from the Splitcoast Stampers website. This is my favorite soup recipe, but it was one that was really difficult to come up with a design for. I decided that soup weather is in the fall, and made a very simple fall design.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Linen
Ink: Creamy Caramel
Cardstock: Browns, Ivory
Other Supplies: Ribbon, Stickers, Designer Paper

Double Whimsy

When a friend and her daughter came over to do some stamping, I moved ALL of my Stampin'UP! sets to the kitchen and dining room for them to look at to decide what they wanted to use. Well, I decided that I needed to USE each set before they would go back into the craft room cabinets! Needless to say, there are still many sets in the kitchen but this is one of the cards I made using two of the sets. I'm also trying to use some of the designer paper I've been stockpiling!

Bring On The Music!

Thursday's Ways To Use It Challenge was to make a music themed card. Whoooo Hooooo! I love music and I've been hoarding the perfect designer paper for it!

I thought that these colors would be perfect for a subdued, simple sympathy card. Supplies used:
