I'm a frequent blurfer and find myself collecting great ideas from other stampers. I am inspired by them and the projects they create. While I like to change up something about a project that I am CASING, sometimes there's no reason to change something that is perfect. It can be assumed that every idea I share, I got from someone else unless I indicate otherwise. I'm not very good at always keeping and knowing who the originator is so, if you see something that looks like yours, please let me know and I will give proper credit when due. Please don't be hurt or offended if I don't give you credit originally.
Here is the other St. Patrick's Day card that I created for the boutique that is selling my cards. It's very similar to the card I shared previously. The colors this time are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Whisper White. The stamp set is Lucky Shamrock.
It's Friday again, so that means Sketch Frenzy Friday! Here is this week's sketch.
And here is my creation. I again rotated the sketch and used Bold Blossom and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. The colors are Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Wild Wasabi.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to continue onto our homepage and add your own creation!
Valentine's Day over, so now it's time to move onto the next holiday - St. Patrick's Day. The only stamping is the sentiment, which is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The colors are Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, and Early Expresso.
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget tomorrow is the DCBC challenge.
Here is a card that I made using Eat Chocolate. The colors are Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, and Early Expresso. It is a CASE of a swap I received.
I originally was going to make it as one of my swaps for the Minneapolis Regionals, but I ran out of time with all the favors I had to made. At first, I thought I was crazy for attempting to cut out all those cupcakes, but I came up with a little trick to cut them out fast. So as promised yesterday, here is how I did it.
First I colored the cupcakes as desired and stamped. Since I was only using Pretty in Pink and Early Expresso here, I inked the image up in Pretty in Pink and then took my Early Expresso and colored over the portions that I wanted Early Expresso. Note, this would not work for the cupcakes I showed yesterday. I then took my 1/2" circle punch and punched out each cupcake, making sure the top of the cupcake lined up with the punch. I hope you can see this is the picture below. Apparently I'm not very good at taking pictures of myself trying to work, sorry about the blurriness.
Then, I took my paper snips and made three straight cuts. One along each side and one along the bottom.
And you then have your cupcake all cut out and can adhere to your project as desired.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found that quick tutorial helpful.
Hi everyone! And happy Friday! That's right, it's time for Sketch Frenzy Friday and I have a creation for you! First, here is the sketch.
I have to tell you that I did have a tough time with this. But here is what I came up with, using some of the SAB paper and accents and Eat Chocolate. The colors are Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight.
Thanks for stopping by and your next stop is the homepage where you can add your own creation. Tomorrow I will have a little tutorial on how I cut out the little cupcakes along the bottom off the card too. You don't want to miss out!
Two days in a row, can you believe it? Today's share is actually a card that I CASED for a Stamp-A-Stamp with the men in mind. Here is the card that is for the Stamp-A-Stack. I used Bring on the Cake and the colors are Pear Pizzazz and Early Expresso.
Here is another take on the card that I used for a swap at the Minneapolis Regionals held this past weekend. Same stamp set and basic layout, but the colors are More Mustard and Early Expresso.
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for tomorrow's Sketch Frenzy.
I'm back, kind of. Sorry I took such a long leave of absence. I've had so much going on this past week that I barely had time to breathe. On Thursday, I was asked to make 350 favors for the boutique that I'm selling my cards at. They were due yesterday. I got about 275 of them done, but that was enough. Anyways, onto today's scheduled program, it's time for the Diva Coffee Break Challenge. This week it's a sketch and here it is.
And here is my creation. I rotated the sketch and used Bliss. The colors are directly from the Color Coach and are Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by the homepage to add your own creation. One more week and I'll be back more permanently.
Its Friday so that means its sketch frenzy Friday. As you probably have noticed, I have had a lot going on and haven't been very good at updating my blog. Well today is no different, I got called put of town last minute so didn't have time to post this weeks sketch, much less create one. I hope to have it posted later this afternoon. Sorry, but in the meantime be sure to check out the homepage to add your own creation.
I actually have a share for you on a non-challenge day. Okay, so it's only two CASEs of myself. I had to make some cards quick for a swap that I angelled for so I just ended up changing up the colors and/or DSP on two cards I shared with you previously. The first one can originally be found here. And here is the new one. I changed out the colors and used Real Red instead of Melon Mambo. I used Button, Button, Tiny Tags, and So Many Thanks.
And here is the second one. Again, the original can be seen here. This time I changed out the DSP. The stamp set is Valentine Defined.
Thanks for stopping by and tomorrow I have a new creation using the sketch for Sketch Frenzy!
Welcome to Wednesday and this week's Diva Coffee Break Sketch Challenge. First, here is the sketch.
And here is my creation. I had some left-over butterflies from last week's challenge and used them for this. The colors are Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and Whisper White. The only stamping was again for the sentiment, which was from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the homepage and add your own creation.
