Blues and Greens

Our Creative Corner has a new challenge to use Blues and Greens. I really like that color combination, especially since green is my favorite color. You can never use enough green. :-)
This is a perfect card for a boy.

Card Details: The card base is SU Brilliant Blue. The card sketch is an old one #145 from CPS. I cut the star with my cricut from some paper I had in my stash. The stamp is SU Pun Fun and is embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. The DP is DCWV All About Boys stack. You can't tell from the pic but the squares on that paper are shiny.

Thanks for hanging out with me!

I think charms just add that extra little element to cards. I don't see them too often anymore though. The challenge this month over at the Stamp and Create blog is to use charms. I made this card for a friend of mine's daughter who had just had her ballet recital and then had her birthday party. This stamp was perfect for her.

Card Details: The stamp is called Tiny Dancer from Wags and Whiskers. It was embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. The card base is PTI Aqua mist. The DP and the dark pink papers are from my stash. The light pink paper is SU Pretty in Pink. The ribbon is one that I got from my neighbor. It is white but it looks like pink in the picture. The flowers are Primas. The flower spacers and charm are from Stamp and Create. The brads are from my stash.

Thanks for hanging out with me!

The end of the year - so many events... Graduation being one of them. One of the young ladies from my church just graduated highschool...she is amazing. A brilliant, brilliant girl! She graduated Summa Cum Laude and is going to college on some fabulous scholarships. Anyway, I made this card for her. It will be complete with an Amazon Gift Card (she received a Kindle as her one of her Grad gifts.)
I used the sketch from CPS 172. I really liked this sketch. I am a very "clean and simple" card person. Don't get me wrong... I really love all the cards out in "Cardland" that are so creative and full of embellishments and eye candy... I admire all those artists out there whose blogs I stalk daily. ;-) For me though, I am simple in my card designs. I actually get scared when I add too much. LOL! Do any of you feel that way?

Card Details: Card base is SU Basic Black. The blue is SU Brilliant Blue. I ran it though my Cuttlebug with the PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate. The yellow is SU So Saffron I stamped with a Studio G diploma stamp I got for a dollar at Joann's. The mortar board is also a Studio G stamp. The arrow was cut from PTI Silver Cardstock and stamped with another Studio G stamp. (A collection of 3 different Studio G sets.)

Thanks for hanging out with me!

Froggy Gift

It has been forever since I posted. How life gets in the way.... I have been busy crafting though - just haven't had a chance to post any of my projects. Here is one that I can post though - High Hopes Challenge #81 Anything Goes! I can do that!

I love this stamp. I have two boys and they are the true definition of "boy"! This stamp reminds me of the time that we had an invasion of tiny frogs in our patio. My boys (especially my youngest) decided that they needed to pick up every single one of them and put them in their bug habitat. I do not exaggerate when I say that there were over 50 tiny frogs. I love my boys!

Card Details: The stamp I used is High Hopes Froggy Gift which was embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. The card is base is SU Kiwi Kiss. The other solid colors are SU Certainly Celery and Riding Hood Red. The DP is an old paper set I had from Paper Wishes. I am not sure if it is available anymore because I have had it forever!. The ballcap charm is from Stamp and Create. The ribbon is from the Dollar Tree.

I will probably mention the Dollar Tree alot in my posts. It's my favorite store and you would be amazed how many crafting items you get there. I bought a bunch of ribbon a few weeks ago. Love it!

Thanks for hangin out for a little while! Adios!
