Inkspirations Challenge #98 and Occasions mini sneak peek

Hi all, and welcome to the Inkspirations Challenge 98 (we are almost at #100 :)). This week it's a color challenge and the colors are: So Saffron, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White). I decided to give you a little sneak peek from the Occasions mini catalog that is coming in January. I used the MDS stamp brush set Apothecary Art and printed the images on Whisper White and Wild Wasabi card stock. I used blender pens to color in the images and sponged with So Saffron around the Whisper White layers. Then used some Wild Wasabi dsp, Rose Red cardstock and So Saffron card base to finish off the card. The card is embellished using Rose Red seam binding ribbon.

Getting ready for Christmas

Sorry I have been quiet for over a week.
Last week was extremely busy at work and I had no time whatsoever to create a thing. On Friday and Saturday I did our Christmas decorations and hung up the stockings, well sort off. I had to put them down since they were too heavy( they are already filled) to stay up, except one. But today I wanted to share the tags I made for the stocking holders. I used cherry cobbler and white cardstock. Stamped the background using Christmas Collage background stamp and then adhered the diecut letters ( they are the Sizzlit alphabet set-can't think of the name). Then spritzed with shimmer mist that I made using rubbing alcohol and champagne shimmer paint. I tied them to the holders using Cherry Cobbler seam binding.
Enjoy!

Heliconia Card Set - UStamp with Dawn and Friends project


Hi all,
Today I have my 2nd project for Ustamp with Dawn and Friends Knock out with punches round to share with you. Does my sentence even make sense? Sorry, I am just brain dead today. It's been long day at work, and the next 2 days will be the same way. Then I will be taking about 3 months off as my maternity leave. Which means the due date is approaching fast :)
Anyway...
I used the Two step bird punch to create the flowers.
To learn more about UStamp click-->HERE
Please direct all technical questions you have about Ustamp to Dawn, I can't answer questions about access to the projects, payments etc.

Clean and Simple Friday



Here is another card I made, similar to my Inkspiration challenge one (scroll down for the previous post). I CASEd myself, I used THIS card as a reference to create mine, just changed up the colors and used larger snowflake punch (not SU!). For this one instead of whisper white and real red, I used crumb cake and pool party. I LOVE those two colors, together, or separately. The sentiment is stamped with Whisper White craft ink, the snowflake is faux stitched using white gel pen, and the button is whisper white from the Neutrals buttons collection, I added some white bakery twine, as well.

Inkspirations Challenge #96


It's time for another Inkspirations challenge. And this time it's a color challenge. The colors for this week are: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. I love working with Crumb cake.
For this card I decided to use the reverse applique  technique and punched some snowflakes on the front of my card base. The large snowflake is EK punch, that is not SU! and the small one is retired SU! snowflake punch. I layered some bashful blue dsp on the back, and then another layer of crumb cake cardstock. I did some faux stitching using my white gel pen. Then added some vanilla buttons, and stamped the sentiment from Contempo Christmas set in Very Vanilla. And as a finishing touch I tied some Real Red satin ribbon.

After it's avaialable you can use the same link and it'll be the actual file.



Christmas Lane Sleigh-$5.95
This instruction/template file includes the printable PDF template for the sleigh and pdf file with supplies and instructions how to put together the sleigh and to make the love notes.

Fall Fest Online extra template


I just wanted to give you heads up that I just posted an extra template for the Fall Fest Online class. It's an apple shaped tote that will fit 3"x3" love notes.

This project will not be accompanied by a video, since it's pretty self-explanatory. I will post my project made with it soon :)

More simple Christmas Cards


Here are some more clean and simple Christmas Cards. The set and dies I used are not SU!, as well the dsp.




Christmas Lodge card


Today I have another simple card to share with you, and it's again Christmas one. I guess I am in Christmas mood lately :)
And most likely for a while you'll be seeing clean and simple cards from me.
I used the Christmas Lodge stamp set and Frostwood Lodge dsp and some Cherry Cobbler quilted satin ribbon.
I stamped the image in Early Espresso and colored the snow with Whisper white craft ink and a brush, then sponged around with whisper white.
