Oh, What Fun Nontraditional Colors!

Hi crafty friends! We have a beautiful color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

Aren’t they pretty colors?! The “challenge” comes in to play when trying to pair them all together and challenge it was for me! But I decided to go out on a limb and not use Among the Branches…  Get it?! haha! I know I know… Cheddar but what can I say?!

Happy

I used the new Oh, What Fun stamp set. And upon closer inspection I actually did use Among the Branches after all! That is where my three little snow flakes came from. Whoopsie! Well, I told you that set was versatile. 🙂 I decided to make a fun girly Christmas Card and went with the flow.

My sketch came from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge:

I colored my rhinestones with some random gold pen I found in my desk. I couldn’t begin to tell you what brand it is but it worked and I went with it! And my gold twine is the Cording Trim in the holiday catalog. I hope you can join along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

Making Spirits Bright

Would you believe me if I said that I cannot believe that it is Thursday already? I know that I say it so much that it is starting to sound cliche but I mean where is the time going?! Good grief! At least there is a fun sketch challenge and Create with Connie and Mary this week!

I’ve been making a lot of Fall Cards with the new Among the Branches stamp set but I thought it was time to change it up and make it a Christmas card. Last year I got a Christmas stamp set and was able to use it for a lot more than just Christmas. I love how versatile SU stamps are!

Bright

I used the new Merry Moments DSP stack. It all coordinates and makes it easy as pie. I layered on of the new foil doilies with my punched out card stock and sentiment and that about wraps it up! Bright3

Except for these gorgeous rhinestones on the side here. I actually gave my last catalog away and now I don’t know the names of things (what are these beauties called?) ! Plus it’s making me a little on edge… I’m telling you friend, I need help. I am a paper addict all the way!

So with that all aside (I am terribly tired and am rambling here. Please do forgive me.), come join us at Create with Connie and Mary! You will not be able to help being inspired when you see the other designer’s cards. It’s really cool to see a sketch and then everyone’s different take on it. A very talented group I tells ya! 😉

Too busy to Care?

Hi Friends! It is color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary. I decided to do things a bit different this week and also participated in Mojo Monday’s sketch challenge.

Autumn

So my title says it all. I thought that my card was too busy but my mother-in-law was here and she said that she liked more leaves so I went with it! I just didn’t care and the more I added the more I liked it! I guess I’m just craving some autumn! It’s still very warm here in Coastal Carolina and don’t even get me started on the humidity!

Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday:

and another shot of my take on it (with some fall foliage of course)!

Happy Haunting on a Thursday

Happy Thursday all! It is sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Looking at this sketch I thought easy peasy!

Yes… “Thought” being the keyword. My pride forbids me to tell you how long it took me to come up with my rendition of the sketch!

Happy

I cut some small strips of Basic Black card stock and curled them up. This card looks easy enough, right? Then, prey tell, how in the world did I struggle for “x” amount of time?! ha! I punched out my images from the Happy Haunting DSP and my sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

This set has a stamp for just about any holiday or event you can think of… Besides National Dog Day; which I am embarrassed to say that I missed. How could I? My best friend in the world has four legs and we fight for the same pillow. So I’m a bit late in celebrating her but here she is in all of her splendid glory, Aspen, also known as my BFF Bubbies. ❤

Kind of got off track there! We will blame it on Teeny Tiny Wishes! 😉 Thanks for stopping by. Check out the other designer’s takes on the challenge this week and let’s see what you come up with! Play along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!
