Chocolate chip and sage shadow…great combo

 


 I don't know why I don't use this To the Nines designer paper more often. It is so pretty. I just love the chocolate chip and sage shadow combo. For this card, I used the big shot to texture the top part and then I used the pinking hearts border punch for the center piece. I also used the fancy flower punch and layered that to give it a vintage look.

 

 

 

 

Here is a close up of the flower. I did stamp the leaves from Le Jardin Botanique on them also and crumpled the up to give it more texture.  I love the corduroy brads too. They look great in the center of any flower.

Mojo Monday a day late!

 


Here is the mojo Monday sketch for this week. You could do a round or a square card. I chose the square one but you still had to do a circle in the middle. Lucky for me I had my handy dandy Big Shot dies. I used the circle die and the scallop circle die to get my circles. They layer perfectly together.

Here is my card……

 

 

I used the Sweet Pea slab of designer paper for the brown polka dot, the pink polka dot and the piece behind the circles is actually tiny brown polka dot paper but it is hard to see in the photo. The solid colors are chocolate chip, pretty in pink and whisper white.  I used my favorite stamp set, Vintage Vogue for the center piece.

Vintage Coaster Calendar


This was one of my March class projects. Everyone who came to a club or a workshop got to make one of these coaster calendars along with 2 other really cute projects. I used the Vintage Vogue setfor the flowers  and the Sense of Time set for the words. The calendars are from vippies.com
. THe background paper is from the Thoroughly Modern pack of designer papers. For the scalloped piece, I used the scallop corner punch and punched each corner once and it came out perfect. I started with a 2×2 piece of cardstock.

Easy to make notebooks!

I picked up a couple dozen of these notebooks in the dollar bin at Target a while back and finally got around to doing something with them…..you know how that is….

Well, I looked through my giant slab of Stampin Up Sweet Pea designer papers and found this one. I also used the Charming stamp set with Pretty in Pink and Chocolate chip inks and cardstock and the pretty in pink taffeta ribbon. I have already given several of these away as gifts and everyone loved them.

Cute Easter Basket

 

About a month or so ago, a wonderful demonstrator named Cristena Bagne shared this awesome basket tutorial for weaving an Easter basket so I thought I would give it a try. It ended up being easier than I thought when I first looked at it. I had never done any kind of basket weaving but it really was so easy that it didn't matter.

 

 

 

 

This is the front view. I love this new satin ribbon. Stampin Up has the most gorgeous ribbons and they are such a great value. Most of them are 10-15 yards for around $6-8.

 

 

 

 

Here is a side view. You can see the wheel design and weaving good from this angle.

Mojo Monday time!

It's Mojo Monday time again! I have been so busy this week that it took me til Thursday to get it done though! LOL!
 THis has been a crazy week, but I finally have a few days off to sit and play with my stamps. Here is what I came up with…..

 

I used the Of the Earth stamp set for this one.  It is a level 1 hostess set . You can get this stamp set for FREE  when you hostess a party or with a $150 order. As soon as I saw the sketch I thought this one would fit perfectly in the tall thin pieces. I love the pink and green combo together too. I used regal rose and gable green markers to color the flowers. The words are from the Fresh Cuts stamp set.

Sweet and Simple

Here is a super easy card using the Vintage Vogue stamp set that I made as one of my stamp camp stamp a stack cards. Each person who attended got to make 3 of these cards plus 9 more cards of different designs. This is by far my favorite Stampin Up set right now. I love it!! I really hope Stampin Up comes out with a lot more sets like this one.

Happy Monday everyone!

This is one of the 4 cards I am doing in stamp camp this month. I love the soft suede and bermuda bay combo here.  The thoroughly Modern designer paper really has some great color combos! I used the Always stamp set for this card. I sure hope Stampin Up doesn't retire this one. It is one of my favorites!

Each person that comes to camp this month gets to make 3 of each card we are doing for a total of 12 cards.
