Up for a challenge?

Hi stampers!  Quick post today of a card I made for the week's color challenge over on splitcoast stampers!  I'm trying to do more challenges and I encourage you to as well.  I loved the colors this week!  They are soooo "holiday".  So here is my Santa card in Old olive, real red, and river rock:

I used Jolly Old Saint Nick, Bright Christmas, and Serene Snowflakes.  I also added some dazzling diamonds, vanilla satin ribbon and the dotted scalloped punch.  They sentiment didn't turn out quite as bright as I wanted but I kind of like the subtle effect afterall.  Hope you like it!

And don't forget, you have until midnight Utah time to take advantage of the HUGE online sale on my website.  Place an order of $150 or more and get free shipping as well!  Also the last day to sign up as a demo for HALF the cost!  Gotta get to work!

Happy stamping!

Clean and Simple

So clean and simple is not usually my thing.  The more bling and stuff I can fit on a card the better!  Well, I loved the color combo clean and simple challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers last night so I decided to play along.  Now, it's not that I don't LIKE CAS cards, I just tend to go overboard on stuff.  And I took a break from my holiday craze too.  I have a good friend in need of a sympathy card so that's what I made. 

This card actually hit two challenges: the color challenge (crumb cake, a soft pink...I used blushing bride, old olive, marina mist which was optional, and white) can you say love????? And then another challenge had you use a senitment as your main focal point and I thought the sympathy quote from Occasional Quotes would be perfect AND it fits perfect on the scalloped rectangle clearlit! 

 Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Occasional Quote (hostess)
Paper:  Crumb cake, whisper white, old olive, blushing bride, marina mist
Ink:  Old olive
Accessories:  white gel pen, punch pack, rectangle clearlit

I really like the way it turned out.  As for the white border I just used my white gel pen and free handed it.  Hope you like it!

Happy stamping!

An apology...and day 13

Hi stampers...so 13 IS an unlucky number!  I must apologize because I had an automatic post all set for last Saturday and day 13 of the 13 days of Halloween...or at least I thought I did.  I hadn't logged on until today and I see that it didn't post!  I'm so sorry, we went out of town for a Halloween party and I just assumed it worked all hunky-dory.  Ugh!  Anyway, sooo sorry.  So I'll post my project here...only a little late.  The good news:  I looked online and found my tree WAAAYYY on clearance if you want to pick one of the little boogers up (and be careful...it's covered in glitter and SHEDS everywhere!!!!!  Ask the clerk to wrap it up separate if you buy anything else...don't ask me how I know to suggest that).

Anyway here is the project which was inspired by the amazing and talented Kimberly VanDiepen.  You can visit her blog here.  I really love her work and she's just too cute!  So here is my spooky tree and cones:

 There is a great tutorial on Kimberly's blog on how to make these but they were super easy.  All they are is a 6 x 6 square of DSP that you cut in half corner to corner so you end up with a triangle.  I added some ribbon with sticky strip and then rolled them up and adhered them with more sticky strip.  Then, I just stamped some embellishments and prettied them up a bit.  I really love this!!!!  Thanks Kimberly for the idea and video.

Hope you liked my slightly late project.  But just think, now you have a whole year to work on yours for next year an you can save about $20 on the tree:-)

I'll leave you with a picture of Jon and I at my friends Halloween party.  He was a cowboy (with crazy hair) and I was a gypsy...even though everyone though I (and my best friend...we coordinated) was a pirate (clearly not a pirate, hehe).  And I'm proud to say we stayed up way past 10:00...a feat which we did not manage at the party last year, lol!  Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!

Happy stamping!
