Friday Mashup Again

Here is the card I did for the Friday Mashup this week. I decided not to use the sketch this time and just go with the color combo of Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Very Vanilla. I used the new Pennant Parade set and punch, along with  the birthday bakery and words from the heart sets. Thanks for looking.

Come and Get it Technique Challenge-Kissing

For this weeks challenge over at Come and Get It, it was Leslie's turn to decide on a technique this month. She chose the kissing Technique, a fairly simple technique, but I find you have to have the right type of stamp to have it show off really well. The card I've done uses, the retired Stamp Set, Big Blossom, and the soon to be retired Priceless, yeah it will retire at the end of this month, so if you want it, get it now. I also used the stamp from the Bring on the Cake set  Thanks for looking

Stamping 411

Here is my card for the Stamping 411 Sketch this week. Haven't had much time to play with challenges in the last bit, as I'm trying to catch up on some other things as well as I was back working on Christmas cards again for a bit. I now have 69 done, So I am slowly getting there, as I need 100 for the one order this year, and then some for other people, so have to keep doing a few here and there, but need a break too.
So for this card I used The Open Sea Set, and the Nautical Expedition paper, I used Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy and Cherry Cobbler,  I just love this set and will be sad to see it go so soon after it's gotten here.
Anyway thanks for looking.

Sketch Challenge

For this week we have a sketch challenge at come and get it, I actually made the sketch in My digitial Studio, trying to work on a few things using the new software. It's another Christmas Card I know, but yeah it's new stamps from Stampin' Up available July 1st, when the new catalogue comes out. It's called pennant parade and it has some really cool pennants and accesories with it, also they have a punch to make it even easier to make them. Anyway thanks for Looking have a great Sunday and a great week.

Christmas Cards Again

Here is a card I've finished tonight, I used the bells and boughs set from the Holiday Mini last year. The ribbon is the cherry cobbler seam binding and I used the vintage wallpaper embossing folder for the background, and the sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations set. I also used some vanilla smooch spritz on it after it was done, gives it a nice glimmer. I used the sketch from the Stamping 411 site. Thanks for looking

Sketch Challenge

Here is a card I made for this weeks A La Card Monkey Challenge. I wasn't able to do any challenges last week, as I was busy doing a street sale here in Aurora where I live, and then this past weekend I went to a class/seminar put on by the wonderful Heather Summers. It was great we did a number of projects, and I learned a lot while I was there. Anyway this is using some retired designer paper, along with the Birds and Blooms die, which will be retiring at the end of this month. I really like these little flowers, but I guess everything has to have a goodbye at some point. I used Certainly Celery, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink card stock, I inked the edges of the flowers in Regal Rose and Soft Suede to give the flowers a bit more definition, I then put them together using brads from the soft subtle collection.
Thanks for looking.

Color Challenge at Come and Get It

Hi Everyone, I know it's been a while since I've posted but It's been a really busy time for me in the past while. Last weekend I was part of a street festival here in my home town. I had a booth there so I have been busy getting ready for it. It was a great day and had a great time. After that I was busy with meetings, and just doing a whole bunch of different things. I still haven't even put the stuff away from the Street Festival, but my goal today is to get that stuff put away and get my house back in some sort of order, but before I do that I have a card to show you which was used a double purpose. As Yesterday I went to a get together for demonstrators only put on by the lovely Heather Summers. She is a wonderful personable person. I learned a lot from her and she was very generous with her knowledge as well as with her workshops. Thanks Heather. Anyway I did this card for a swap that we had during this event, and I also made it for the Come and Get it Color Challenge. Hope you all like it. Thanks for stopping in
