No Peeking for Fab Friday!

Wow! It is time again for another Fab Friday challenge. These two weeks seem to pass so quickly! Mindy has a great, versatile sketch this time. I would like to go back and play with this sketch some more when I have a little bit more time. I have had a very busy week and didn't get to really play with this challenge as much as I hoped I would. I decided to go with a Christmas card using the adorable "No Peeking" set for this sketch. I hadn't inked up the cute little penguin and I thought that he would work well.

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: No Peeking
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints DSP
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Gumball Green
Accessories: Big Shot, Chevron EF, Cherry Cobbler baker's twine, neutrals buttons

Please be sure to swing by at Fab Friday and play along with us!

Sorry for the quick post! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends! Thanks for stopping by! Pin It

Dress Up Catalog CASE

Hello stampers! It is a busy, busy week so this is a going to be a quick post. I made this card a couple of weeks ago for a birthday party for one of my daughter's friends. We are really working the little girl birthday party circuit lately. I (amazingly) had the foresight to make an extra copy of this card for another party coming up in a few weeks. My girly girl has had her eye on this set (Dress Up) since the annual catalog came out and I finally broke down and got it for her during the recent stamp sale. My inspiration for this card came from the catalog. There is a sample card made with this set and I just changed it up a bit to make it my own. I hope you like it!

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Dress Up, Create a Cupcake
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Primrose Petals, Whisper White
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Primrose Petals
Accessories: Big Shot, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing Tool, Holiday Collection Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, In Color Dahlias, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to come back on Friday for the next Fab Friday card!

Fab Thanksgiving

Hi stampers! Well, another two weeks have passed without me posting a single card. :-/ I will try to do better. I have finished all of my stamping events for the year, so I should have more "fun stamping" time over the next few weeks and will hopefully have more cards to post soon.

Believe it or not, it is already time for another fun Fab Friday challenge. Mindy has a color challenge for us this time. I think these colors are really pretty together and just scream fall to me. What do you think?

I made a Thanksgiving card for this challenge. I have to admit that I did have a little bit of trouble with this color combination at first. I wasn't sure how to incorporate the Midnight Muse, so I decided to use it the same way that I would use black or any other dark neutral in a card. Here is my interpretation of the colors using sketch #59 from Freshly Made Sketches. I hope you like it.
Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Day of Gratitude, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Spice Cake DSP (retired)
Ink: Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Square punch, Antique Brad, Basic Pearls, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin ribbon
Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Fab Friday and play along with us!
