Color Inspiration


This color inspiration was really tough for me, but that is why I like doing them so much! I actually sat down a couple of times to try and create something for the color inspiration and I would just get up again or stamp something else instead. Once I got the idea for this card, it wasn't too hard to put together. The idea for weaving the strips of paper came to me because, since I don't use earth tones very much, I didn't have any accessories in these colors.


Materials for this card: Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set; Basic Gray, More Mustard, Really Rust and Very Vanilla card stock; Basic Gray, More Mustard and Really Rust Classic Stampin' Pads.

Father's Day Cards

I have been having some trouble creating Father's Day cards this year. I realized that I really don't have many masculine stamps. I've gone into my stamp room several times in the last week with the intention of making Father's Day cards only to leave frustrated. Well, today was the day the cards had to go in the mail. I ended up in a race to beat the mailman and I just barely managed to beat him to the mail box. Literally, as I turned from the mail box to go back into the house, the mailman was pulling up to the neighbor's house!

Inspiration finally struck this afternoon! I spent this morning designing cards for my Birthday Stamp-A-Stack this weekend and the set Party Hearty was still on my desk. I looked at my desk and say the "Celebrate You" stamp from the set and thought "Ah Ha! that will work!" Then I decided to stamp Dad using the Big Deal alphabet (which is retiring) and my Father's Day cards were born! (Don't worry, Honey. I'm making you a different card.)



Materials for this card: Big Deal Alphabet, Party Hearty stamp sets; Kraft, Bashful Blue and Whisper White card stock; Real Red and Kiwi Kiss Classic Stampin' Pads; 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch; Kiwi Kiss stripped grosgrain ribbon; Stampin' Dimensionals.

Color Inspiration

I took some time to stamp this morning to create a card for Kristina's Color Inspiration. I was nice to be able to just be creative for a few minutes. I have been preparing for a paper bag scrapbook class for 20-25 people that will be on Monday, so I have busy cutting paper and writing instructions and have had no time for stamping. My super sweet friend Ann Marie even came over to help me cut paper.

I was inspired by the circles on the car seat cover in Kristina's inspiration photo, so I cut circles using my Big Shot and circle punches and stamped with Seeing Spots. Seeing Spots is on the Last Chance list, so if you want it make sure you order soon!

Materials for this card are: Seeing Spots and Bitty Birthday stamp sets; Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Baja Breeze and Whisper White card stock; Baja Breeze Taken with Teal and Green Galore Classic Stampin' Pads; Big Shot and Circle die; 3/4, 1 and 1 1/4 inch circle punches.

Another card from my May class

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted anything. Things have been a bit crazy in our family lately, besides the fact that my daughter has been out of school for almost two weeks now, so I've had less time for stamping and blogging. I have several projects to show you and I'm working on some projects using new product that will be available in the new catalog that comes out on July 1st, so stay tuned for that!

This card was inspired by dessert plates I saw in a Crate and Barrel catalog. This is a really quick card to make. I took three strips of card stock, punched them with the Scallop Edge Punch and then layered them on the card. The cupcake was created using the Big Shot and the Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits. The greeting is the Birthday Wish stamp from the Under $10 page of the catalog.

Materials for this card: Birthday Wish stamp; Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss card stock; Baja Breeze Textured card stock; Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin' Pad; Big Shot and Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits; Stampin' Dimentionals.
