Happy May!

Hello!

Tonight I sat at my desk to stamp just because for the first time in over 5 months. I have been making cards for holidays/birthdays as needed and attending card afternoons, but to just sit in my room to stamp for fun? Nope, it hasn’t happened in a long time.

I pulled out all of my Stampin’ Up! supplies that are retiring – why? I rarely ever part with them lol…but I thought it might be a good idea to try and use some of it up before ordering from the new catalog next month. I’m sure there will be one or ten things I must have lol!

For tonight’s card, I cut up card bases and then 3 panels of white cardstock in varying sizes. I picked one and decided to use the tall flower from the Avant Garden stamp set. It was a Sale-a-Bration set I got a few months ago and never inked. I paired it with the Blooms & Bliss paper and used colors from that palette to watercolor the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

What’s on My Desk Card

Today I signed up for a “What’s on My Desk” card swap. I could only use what was on my desk…and I made the card tonight! That will likely never happen so quickly again lol!  I really want to clean my desk off so the card had to get made!

 

I used Birthday Flopsey from MFT, a long retired stamp line, along with the current MFT sketch.

My favorite companies are MFT and Stampin Up so it’s no surprise that this card has both! The card base, patterned paper and orange stars are all SU. The image panel, stars and smaller pieces were cut with MFT Dienamics.

 

Here is the sketch~

75th Birthday

Hi again!

 

I’m back with another birthday card. This one was created for my mother-in-law who celebrated her 75th birthday on Friday.  I incorporated several challenges (listed below) in making this card.

 

2016-card-90-su-number-of-years-bday

 

I used several stamps from the Stampin Up Number of Years stamp set, even the flowers were from the set! Even though it’s technically not fall yet, I wanted the card to have a fall feel to it and I think I accomplished that with the color palette and burlap.

 

The sketch used is from Freshly Made Sketches~

and the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts~

also the N is for Numbers challenge at Alphabet Challenge

and the birthday challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks!

 

My MIL’s party was on Labor Day and I created tags for the favor bags.  A huge labor of love since I hand stamped 40 tags.  All the stamps used are from Lawn Fawn – Birthday Tags, Violet’s ABCs and Milo’s ABCs.

Sweet Cupcake

Hello!

 

Today I am sharing a card for a Happy Birthday Cupcake swap.  I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and color challenge at Nacho Average Challenges. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to use Calypso Coral, one of my fave colors!

Using the MISTI made stamping this cupcake pretty easy! I had a little trouble with the bottom layer with the first colors I chose, a tip don’t go too dark or else you can’t see the layers. I think next time I might try stamping off with one color to make the layers blend a bit better.

 

Here is the sketch~
