Fab Valentine

It's Friday and you know what that means- a new challenge at Fab Friday! We have a color challenge this time and it is perfect for Valentine's Day (and other occasions too). I hope you will play along with us!

Here is my project using these pretty colors. This card came together so quickly and easily that it shocked me. I sometimes struggle with color challenges, and I haven't done much stamping lately. Plus, my mojo has been pretty hit or miss, but I was really happy with the results for this one. :)

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hearts a Flutter, Petite Pairs
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Hearts a Flutter framelits, Adorning Accents folders, Pool Party ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to swing by Fab Friday and play along.

Fab Birthday!

Hello and Happy New Year! For my first post in 2013, I have my creations for the new Fab Friday Challenge. Mindy has a fun sketch for us this time. I think it is really versatile and has lots of possibilities. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Here is my take on the sketch...

I like the sketch so much that I made two versions of the same card. I am in desperate need of birthday cards in my stash. My kids seem to go to at least one birthday party each month, so I can't seem to keep a good supply of birthday cards. I wanted to make a feminine and masculine version, but they are both pretty gender neutral.
Here are close ups of each of them.

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Bring on the Cake, Create a Cupcake
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Red Glimmer, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Black Staz On, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Cupcake Builder punch, 1" Square punch, Brights buttons, Baker's twine

Come on over to Fab Friday and play along! I can't wait to see what YOU make!
