Mojo Monday on Tuesday

Wow, can you believe that I could pull off two posts in one day? It's a shock, I know. The last was easy. The pictures were already on my camera. I thought that I could get a jump on some of cool challenges that I want to do. I really liked the layout for this card! I had a really hard time trying to get the little triangle piece to work, so I added an extra button. Let me tell you, I was surprised when I opened my windsor knot DSP and discovered that it didn't have the same colors as the catty says! It is Baja Breeze instead of Sage Shadow! I wanted to use the baja breeze paper too. What a bonus for me! I thought of a cute little baby card with that paper. I used the Bundled in Love hippo. Probably one of my favs! You gotta love the new buttons too. Enjoy.

I survived!

I didn't know what crazy was until I had 4 birthday parties over the weekend! We had 3 on saturday, back to back and 1 on Sunday. I was surprised how good the kids were. Karl didn't even have a meltdown after going to all of the parties! I will say by Sunday afternoon he was a tad crabby. I was hoping to get a nap out of him but I wasn't so lucky! At least I got to take a nap!! Anyway, here are a few of the cards that I made for the gifts. The first card is my take on the sesame street card. I really had fun with it! I love the bright colors. What a great way to use your punches. The second card is using the giant cupcake, Simple Birthday Thanks.
I used a marker to outline and the cut out the cupcake. I don't think that you can tell but I "painted" the icing with a large amount of crystal effects and then sprinkled glitter on it. Thanks for checking out my cards today!

Mojo Monday

I have always been wanting to try one of these challenges. I thought that today I would give it a try! I love Julee's work. She is such an inspiration. This is going to be a short note. I am watching Grey's Anatomy too! I used the new design of DSP in Always Artichoke. The colors that I used were Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant. The flower is from the Bloomin' Beautiful set and the words are from Wow Flowers. It is so nice to sit and an enjoy a TV show without my children interrupting! Life is blissful tonight!!! Enjoy my card. Thanks for stopping by.

new stamps!

Here are a few cards that I stamped with some of my new stamps that I got. The first is using my new square punch and hostess set. I really like the dark colors.
The DSP is from the Bella Rosa paper. I am always going to this paper. I embossed the stamp too. The other card is using the new Cheers set!
I love this set. I got it from my great upline, Beckie. I won it from a contest that she had. I always love free sets! It's funny that I got this from her because she doesn't drink. I'm sure that I will use it all the time. I was trying to make a masculine card. I am always in need of one of those. Now I'm off to do laundry and enjoy a quiet house because my husband is gone with the kids and his parents to Estes Park. What a great way to spend my free time away from the children by doing laundry! Only a mother would do that! Enjoy.

Is fall just around the corner?

You know what day it is, that means is time for Kristina's color challenge. Kristina picked some wonderful colors this week. We had to use Bravo Burgundy, Chocolate chip, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Old Olive and either vanilla or white. I love this color combo. The flowers in the picture remind me of my wedding flowers! I absolutely love calla lillies. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love cool nights and mild days. Living in Colorado, I get to see snow capped mountains too. Enough chatting already, here is my card.I used Burgundy CS for the base, Saffron DSP for the next layer that was stamped in Old Olive using the Baroque Motifs set, vanilla ribbon and the flowers are chocolate chip, old olive and pumpkin pie. I stamped the words in Burgundy craft ink. Enjoy.

color challenge #22

You know it's wednesday when it's color challenge time again! I had to take a quick sneak and look at the colors. I decided that I could get by with a little less sleep tonight! Since I didn't have any extra time last week, not that I have any free time this week, I thought I'd take a minute for myself and stamp a card! I had a hard time wrapping myself around these colors. I thought "what the heck, I'll give it a try!" We had to use regal rose, rose red, bravo burgundy, soft sky and whisper white. I love the fact that Kristina can always step out of the box! Enough blabbing, here is my card. Enjoy!

Pop-up card

Our stamping group had a challenge to try a pop-up card. Here is my version. I thought that this would be a fantastic idea for a baby announcement or shower card. I used the Bundled in Love set. I love the color combination of green and purple for babies but I thought I'd throw another color in too. I used Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst and Bashful Blue. You can check out the tutorial on split coaster stampers. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.
