Technical Difficulties

I wanted to let everyone aware that my laptop died on me the other day.  Until I get a new one, I will not have any projects to share.  Stay tuned…..

Color Challenge #186

Have you ever purchased a stamp set and then you just forgot about it?  Well, this is the only one stamp set that I purchased last year that has not seen ink yet!  I know, shocking, right?  In honor of this weeks Color Challenge, I used this funny stamp set for the first time.

Hello There

If you look on page 237 of the Annual Catalog you will see that my card is similar in the layout found on this page.  I am really drawn to the Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey color combination!  Do you have a color combination that took you by surprise?

Color Challenge #184

For this week’s color challenge, I made a freakin’ adorable fry box.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and knew I would have to make one myself!  Check out those faux french fries, they have the candy (Smartie) in each one!  To make your own “fries”, cut your cardstock to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ and score at every 1/2″ on the long side.

Bloomin’ Birthday

Not sure what it is lately, but I have been on a birthday making card kick!  I used an “gate fold” for this card as well as a technique called  “wax paper marbling”, seen on the right side panel of the card.  It is so simple, just take a small piece of wax paper and wad it up, dab into your ink pad and stamp the cardstock.  This is pretty self explanatory but word to the wise “use separate wax  paper “wads” for each color!”

Eclectic Birthday

Here is a super simple card that I CASEd from Jenny Peterson ~ thanks Jenny!  I originally was going to use a different card base but it didn’t look right, so it is pretty much just like Jenny’s.
