Mojo Wednesday!

Hi All,
I wanted to share some of my Halloween cards that used some of the awesome new goodies in the new Holiday Catalog! I knew that I had to get my own Halloween cards done but was stumped for a layout so I went on over to Mojo Monday and they had this great sketch:

 
I knew this would be perfect! Here is what I came up with:
 
Love, Love Love the new Holiday Home Polymer stamp set with the coordinating Homemade Holiday framelits. These Polymer stamps were SO easy to use and line up! It was also a great way to play with my Blendabilities! Its so great to be able to blend colors without them bleeding through the paper! Love the end result! Thanks for stopping by!

Love these late night postings!

Evening All,
I intended to post this yesterday but of course the day got away from me! That happens with four kids under one roof especially when one is only 11 weeks old!! I am impressed with myself that I have found a little time to craft here and there during the week. Yesterday I was trying to get a few "Thank You" cards done but was stumped for a layout until I went on over to Freshly Made Sketches and they had this awesome sketch:

 
Here is what I came up with:
 
 
I used a base of Old Olive, some Rich Razzleberry and coordinating Cottage Wall DP that I had squirreled away. I had used the sentiment from the "From My Heart" set. Love the elegant look of this stamp! A little Razzleberry ribbon and I was done. One of my favorite reasons for using the Stampin Up product line is all the coordination. I love that I can have the same exact shade from DP, to ribbon to ink to brads, etc! Well off to another project before my littlest one needs me again!
Have a great night!
Karin

The Polar Express!

Hi All,
Well on this rainy day in New England I spent the day catching up on some crafting! I am going to spend some time at my friends this coming weekend completing some Christmas cards. Since I was in the spirit I decided to plan another card for a potential class after I saw the sketch over at Pals Paper Arts.

Loved the clean lines! Here is what I came up with:
 
I finally got a chance to play with my Traveler stamp set. I heat embossed the train in homage to the Polar Express story and used the gorgeous new All is Calm DP. I am a huge fan of using shades of blue with Christmas cards and combining them with silver. I also used the new Lost Lagoon ribbon available in the new Holiday Catalog! LOVE this color! I used the sentiment from Petite Pairs. I will definitely have to use this card at an upcoming class!
Thanks for stopping by!

Freshly Made Thank You

Hi All
I wanted to share a thank you card I made to try and catch up on all the ones I need to send out!! I had gone on over to Freshly Made Sketches and they had a great sketch:

Here is what I came up with:
 
I used mostly new in colors: Pistachio Pudding,  Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey. I also used the coordinating Baby's First Framelits and  Something for Baby. Love the coordinating colors in the Lullaby DP!

I need a little Mojo!

Hi All,
I wanted to share what feels like the first card in "forever"! I had finally gotten a chance to go on over to Mojo Monday and they had a great sketch:
 
Loved the shapes! Here is what I came up with:
 
I was SO excited, as I finally got a chance to break out my Kind Koala stamp and used my blendabilities to shade the cute little guy with his flower. I was also able to use the Lullaby DP that is available in the catalog. Love the colors and the patterns! I used a base of Pistachio Pudding with Baked Brown Sugar that I had run through my stripes EF, An in-color Dahlia and some ribbon and I was done! I definitely needed this sketch to get me refocused!
Thanks for stopping by!
