Hello there! I haven't had much time to stamp lately, but I wanted to play along with the fun, new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I also received my first shipment from my My Paper Pumpkin subscription this week. I thought it would be fun to combine elements from the kit to make a card for FMS.

Here is the sketch...

And here is my take on the sketch using the My Paper Pumpkin kit as well as a few additional supplies...

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: My Paper Pumpkin
Paper: My Paper Pumpkin card base, My Paper Pumpkin DSP, Basic Gray, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade cardstocks
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Big Shot, 3" Circle Die, Fun Flowers die, Tasteful Trim Die, button (My Paper Pumpkin), Lucky Limeade baker's twine

This card was very quick and easy to put together. It was really fun to use elements from the kit, but still make my own design. I decided to keep it really clean and simple and not to add too many elements beyond what was in the kit. I really only added the baker's twine and pieces cut using the Big Shot and dies.

I hope you like my card and that it will help to get my mojo flowing again. I hope to try to stamp again sometime in the next few days. Maybe I will have more to share soon. Until then, take care and happy stamping. :)

Bloomin' Marvelous for Fab Friday

Hey there, stampers! Thanks for stopping by today! It is time once again for a new Fab Friday challenge. We have a pretty color combination that is perfect for springtime! Check it out...

Now, I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of Pink Pirouette. I have hardly ever used it, but I do think it is pretty in this combination and I don't think any of our other pinks would have worked as well. Calypso Coral is a color that had to grow on me, but now that I have used it for almost two years, I really like it and will miss it when it retires with the current catalog. :-( Here is my card using these pretty colors. I hope you like it!

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: Bloomin' Marvelous
Paper: Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Fan EF, Adorning Accents Edgelits, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Bitty Butterfly punch, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Basic Pearls, dimensionals

I hope you can see the Pink Pirouette butterflies on my card. It is such a light shade of pink that my camera had a hard time picking it up. We made a simpler version of this card at a recent class and I just stepped it up a bit for the challenge. The only additions were the Adorning Accents Edgelits and all of the pearls. If you are looking for a way to dress up a card, our pearls are a wonderful and inexpensive way to do just that! I think this would make a great springtime wedding card and this sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set, Bloomin' Marvelous, is perfect for a wedding.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to swing on over to Fab Friday and play along with us! You have almost two weeks to enter your creation. This challenge closes on March 28th. Also, be sure to visit Justin Krieger's blog to welcome him as the newest member of our design team. Welcome aboard, Justin! Pin It

Pinwheel Birthday for Fab Friday!

Hi stamping friends! It is Friday once again and time for a new challenge at Fab Friday! This time we have a fun sketch. I just love sketch challenges! They take so much of the guess work out of card designing for me. Here is the sketch...

I think this one has lots of possibilities! I love a great, versatile sketch! Here is my take on it. I just love the pinwheel sizzlit. So fun!

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: Wishes Your Way
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Pacific, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Sprinkles and Sunshine DSP
Ink: Pacific Point
Accessories: Big Shot, Pinwheel Sizzlit, Clouds EF, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, brights brads, Lucky Limeade baker's twine

I originally had a Marina Mist background on this card and decided to switch it to Pacific Point to brighten it up. I think I preferred the Marina Mist, but at that point, I had already glued everything down. Oh well! I still think it is a cute card and perfect for a child's birthday. Kids love super bright colors, right?!?

OK, now it's your turn. Hop on over to Fab Friday and play along with us! I can't wait to see what you create! Pin It
