Tee Hee Hee and CCMC332 Color Challenge

Hey everyone, how is your weekend going? So far so good. :)  Last night I had a club workshop and this is one of the cards we made, and it just so happens that it fits the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.

Aren't these colors just perfect for Halloween?? Which is exactly what we were working on last night.

I just love making Halloween cards and when I saw this stamp set in the Holiday Catalog, I knew I just had to have it! It is so stinkin' cute!! There are some super cute sayings, like the one I used here. I think it brings out the little witch in all of us!! ;)

Well, I hope you have a great rest of your weekend. I'm hoping to get in my room and do some scrapping, it's been too long. I have a stack of pictures that is calling my name. Take care, and I thank you for stopping by.

All Supplies from Stampin' Up!:

Christmas K-CupsI

Hey everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I wanted to share an item that I created after looking at all the great projects from other demonstrators and crafters. I saw a project for a K-cup holder from an svg file, and wanted to see if I could find something from Stampin' Up! that could be used. Well, I found it! Another demonstrator had made a goodie box using the new Tiny Treat Boxes in the Holiday Catalog and low and behold, those boxes are the perfect fit for K-cups!!
I took 2 of the boxes and glued them together with the backs facing each other. then I glued down the inside flaps.
I didn't want it to be one-sided, so I decorated it on all sides.
I punched a hole in the lids to add the bow.

I really like how it turned out.The ribbon and the bling just turned out so cute and even match the paper, as well as the snow flake stamp from the Cheerful Tags stamp set. These little boxes almost look like mini drink carry out boxes!! So cute!!

Well, I hope you like my gift box project. It was fun to make and I know I'll be making more for all my friends that have Keurigs!! I hope you have a great evening, and I thank you for stopping by.

Supplies used:

Tiny Treat Boxes
All is Calm Designer Series Paper
Whisper White card stock for the tag
Stamp sets: Cheerful Tags and Num-Num
Ink: Cherry Cobbler and Silver Metallic Encore
Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon and Silver 1/8" ribbon
Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Frosted Sequins
1/2" circle punch
Multipurpose Liquid Glue

CCM320 - Color Challenge

Hey everyone! How's your weekend going so far? I've been working in my room today getting ready for some classes and thought I'd create a card for the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.
I really like all three of these colors, I think they compliment each other so well. Lost Lagoon has to be my favorite of this year's in colors.
So with the Pear Pizzazz in mind, I thought it was perfect to create a Christmas card. Granted, these aren't your usual Christmas colors, but I like the change.
I carried the patterns into the inside of the card. As you can see, I really like to layer my cards. I just think it adds so much color and interest.

I like how this card turned out. May just have to use it in a class! ;) I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I thank you for stopping by.

All supplies from Stampin' Up!

Card stock: Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Ink: Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate

13 Years Later....We Will NEVER Forget!!

Hey everyone. Just a short post with a card I made a few years ago. It's one in remembrance of that fateful day. My thoughts and prayers are with the family members who lost someone. I don't think there's anyone that wasn't touched by that day.

I hope you take a moment out of your busy day to honor everyone that was touched by that day.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a good day.

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday!! So did you notice the new button on my blog? Yep, I was chosen as a Top 3 Pick over at Create with Connie and Mary for my entry last week. How cool is that? Thank you for choosing me, that was so nice!! I haven't been the most posting of bloggers lately, so that is a real incentive to get back at it! With that in mind, I am entering in their challenge again this week.  :)

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. LOVE sketch challenges!! It is definitely half the battle of creating a card. I also wanted to show the inside of the card. So many times I see great cards and I would love to see what they do on the inside.

I really like how it all turned out, and I hope you do too. If you get a chance, head over there and check out their challenge. Have a great rest of your weekend, and I thank you for stopping by.

You Can Never Have Too Much Happy!

Hey everyone! I took one extra day off from work to extend my weekend and what a nice day it's been! I could get really used to not working, but sadly it's too soon for retirement.  :(

So I wanted to share one of the cards I made for someone who asked me to make a stash of birthday cards. This is one of the times I can use up some of my retired stash and unused cut packs from my workshops. LOVE using up the stash!! lol
I just love the color combo yellow and any shade of blue, but navy is the best. So I created the card base with Night of Navy. The mat is Daffodil Delight and the DSP is from the retired set of Gingham Garden. That was one of my favorite patterned paper. So country and girly. I chose the sentiment from the Yippe Skippee stamp set and cut it out with a framelit from the Apothecary Framelit set. I then cut a second one in the Night of Navy to use as a shadow and then added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The ribbon is some retired Night of Navy 1/4" grosgrain. One of the best things about SU! products is that everything matches and you don't have to waste time looking for something to go with your project. The sentiment was also stamped in Night of Navy ink.
I followed the pattern to the inside of the card and created my sentiment from the Endless Birthday Wishes set. Such a fun font and it's a photopolymer set, which is my favorite type of stamp.

I hope you had a good start to your week after a holiday weekend. Mine will start tomorrow and I know it's going to be a busy one! Have a great week, and I thank you for stopping by.
