It’s another color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

This was a fun one but I am not going to say a lot about my card on this post. Not because I don’t want to but because I hurt so bad from gardening all day! It hurts to just sit here. Good grief! But I will say that my flower bed looks much better. 🙂

Make a Wish

I used the Perfect Pennant stamp set for this one along with the star framelits. Did you miss the cool Notebook DSP in the catalog?  Got cha! I made this cute notebook paper lookalike easily with my Spiral Border Punch and Stampin’ Write Markers! I used a piece of 3.25″ x 4″ card stock and ran a fine line vertically with Calypso Coral and make a horizontal line every quarter of an inch. And that’s all she wrote! 🙂

Not M.I.A!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am sorry if it seems that I have been M.I.A. I have simply been in a creative funk. You know how it goes. I had a good “talking to” with myself and got into the craft room. I made a couple of gift card holders that I think are pretty nifty. Yes… nifty. I said it. 😉

Gift Card 1

They are super easy to make. Seriously, just FIVE steps! Check it out!

Of course decorating is the fun part!

Gift Card 2

I made some during Christmas time the same way, just a different look. And I love the envelope that I made using the Punch Board! I went over the “S” with Crystal Effects and it makes it so cool looking with that shine. 🙂

Oh yes! Forgot to mention… I didn’t have any current ribbon to match so I used Hello Honey with the Crushed Curry and I waited in silence to hear the siren from the fashion police. No one came! I am here to tell you that it is safe to use the two colors together.

Not sure why the pictures turned out yellowish but this is Bermuda Bay and it is one of my favorites!

Anywho, that’s all for today folks. I am glad to say that I am not M.I.A. In fact I’ve got a brand new craft desk I’m using. Pictures coming soon! Don’t forget to get your shop on for supplies at my store.

Bathing Suits + Bright Layout = SUMMER!

Layout1

I have decided to do it again! I am going to enter another challenge. This time it’s for the Late Night Stampers group Summertime Challenge.  The challenge states that the project must scream summer! Well bathing suits and bubbles does it for me but add a Crushed Curry sun and we’re golden (no pun!), haha! 😀

This is an easy 8×8 layout. The sun rays are actually from the star punch and the colors I used are Crushed Curry and Pool Party. The DSP is from a few season ago . I’m so happy they brought Crushed Curry back!
