Pals Paper Arts

Morning All,
I wanted to share a card I was finally able to make after being delayed with the stomach bug hitting the house! Absolutely NO fun!! I had needed a card for a Get Well/Sympathy card all occasion stamp a stack that I was running and knew the colors I wanted to use but had no idea as to layout. Well last night I had a chance to go on over to Pals Paper Arts and they had this great sketch:
PPA228 Nov 20
I loved the layout and decided to rotate it for my needs. Here is what I came up with:
I used  base of Crisp Cantaloupe, layers of Hello Honey, Baked Brown Sugar and Lullaby DP. I ran the Brown Sugar through my scallop EF and tied from thick Bakers Twine in Crisp Cantaloupe around the Hello Honey strip. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs. Very simple design that was very easy to work with!
Thanks for stopping by!

Friday Mash Up on a Tuesday

Hi All,
I wanted to share a card I designed the other day based off of the Friday Mash Up's great sketch challenge:

This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project using the "Sketch". 
  • Create a project using a "surprise element, something you wouldn't expect to see on a card/or an unexpected embellishment". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the Sketch and a unexpected Embellishment".

I decided to just stick with the sketch:
I used the Sweet Taffy Dp as I needed something cheery with the dreary weather! I also used the Bitty Banners stamp set and framelits for the sentiment. A vintage clear button and I was done! Love it! Thanks for stopping by!

Back in Black Thank You

Hi All,
I was able to sneak in a card last night between working a half day and good old house work. I need to create a Thank You card for an up coming Stamp a Stack. I decided to break open my Back to Black Designer Paper package that I ordered and haven't had a chance to work with. I had a hard time choosing which piece to start with, as they are all so sharp. See for yourself:

I thought pairing the designs with Strawberry Slush really helped to "pop" the image. I decided to use my Happy Hour set and hand colored the glass with Strawberry Slush and Basic Black with a little added sparkle by making the straw silver. Some Basic Black Satin ribbon and I was done.
Very cheerful card!
Thanks for stopping by!

Homemade Thanksgiving

Evening All,
I wanted to share a card I made to send out this week for Thanksgiving, which I can not believe is already upon us! I have been having a lot of fun with the Photopolymer Stamp set Homemade Holiday! Its super easy to use and the possibilities are endless! Here is my latest creation:
I kept the house simple and added the color with the leaves and pumpkin. I used some left over Spice Cake DP that I had saved. I added some Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon and I was done. Course, when my little one wakes up I was thinking I may emboss his handprint on some of my relatives cards and make a turkey out of his fingers! I think my sister will get a kick out of it!! Have a great night!
