Just Kidding...

I DID stamp (a teeny bit) this week, a super quick card! One more major event this past week (in case there wasn't enough going on) was that there is a teenager in my house now! So this got whipped up in the few minutes I had to spare between baking a cake and him getting home from the pool with friends! haha! Thank goodness for sketches! This time I used the latest from Mojo Monday!
Stamps: April 2015 Paper Pumpkin, March 2015 Paper Pumpkin
Ink: Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White card stocks, Gold Glimmer DP
Accessories: Big Shot, Lucky Stars embossing folder, Stars dies

I also put together this digi-page in between things, but it took me like three days to get it done, haha. I used the inspiration from 1-2-3 Get Scrappy, and it's their last challenge.  I chose the column sparkle-gray background-banner. I was originally thinking some kind of slide show concept, but I started with finding pics of him and all of his birthday cakes and it was a little too distressing to see him grow up that fast just with these pictures, so I went for a collage page instead! haha...

...what do YOU think his favorite colors are? too obvious? hahaha.....
Finally, I did use Wild Wasabi card stock for his party invites, and then just the computer and a black sharpie, haha.... Very, very simple this year!
And that summarizes ALL my stamping this past week!
What did you do?

Bright Butterflies for a Birthday!

I happened to notice that I have a friend's birthday coming up (the part I always miss in sending cards is planning ahead). This person does things for my birthdays and my daughter's so I let my daughter choose the supplies. I told her to pick a stamp set and three colors of ink. Um, who needs a challenge site when you have a creative kid who likes things differently than you do? hahaha!! These are bright colors I would never have put together. She wanted these three butterflies, the hearts and that word stamp...HMMM. After a couple of tries I think I made it all work together with the latest Nacho Average Challenge sketch!
Stamps: Papillion Potpourri, Perfect Pennants
Ink: Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie, Cucumber Crush
Paper: Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White card stock, In Color Envelope Paper
Accessories: White Baker's Twine, Dimensionals

Paper Pumpkin Scrapping!

Yep, it's been a week since I posted, which means it was longer than that since I last stamped...hence the late post today!
I wanted to play with the latest Paper Pumpkin kit, and I wanted to make something else. The "it's your day" stamp kind of led the way and I have these pictures waiting from my daughter's birthday a few years ago so that was a perfect match! I used a sketch found HERE, and I also got to use a product my mom bought in the last catalog (which we still carry) that I haven't got to try out yet! I used the Hearts & Stars decorative masks to make the edge pieces, instead of some kind of paper. I just filled in some of the stars by scribbling with the pen side of the Bermuda Bay marker! Then I used the stamps and flower pieces from the Paper Pumpkin kit!
PS- This page is the second half of the pink layout in THIS post, haha....they don't coordinate but they both use Paper Pumpkin!
Stamps: June 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit
Ink: Bermuda Bay marker, Tip Top Taupe, Calypso Coral
Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizazz & Soft Sky card stocks
Accessories: June 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Hearts & Stars decorative masks

Pink Birthday!

Today's card is what popped into my head when I was supposed to be thinking of summer cards for yesterday's blog hop, and this is the least summery thing I have made in over a week, haha! I had to make notes and put it off a day...which blocked all other creativity for a while! Does that ever happen to you?
I used the latest sketch from Retro Sketches to make this clean, understated little birthday card.
Stamps: Sprinkles of Life
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride
Paper: Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White card stocks
Accessories: White Bakers Twine

Blog Hop: It's SUMMER!

Oh my goodness HOW is it July already?? I have no idea other than...it IS hot enough.....but wow, this summer is flying past! And since it's a new month, it's time for a new blog hop!!
This time we chose the theme of SUMMER, which really, all of my posts the last week or so feel like summer...and I keep mentioning that it really is HOT, haha! So let's continue that theme!

This card uses some bright, summer shades, a splash of watery blue and a good dirty brown shade! (actually, I got the color combo from the Nacho Average Challenge blog, but I thought it totally fit the summer theme!) I have never used this big butterfly before, so that was fun. Also stamping on the DP is a really fun thing for me, kinda takes 'coloring outside the lines' to a whole new level to color on the lines! haha!
This card proved nearly impossible to capture with a camera so you get several shots to see the details!
Stamps: Six Sided Sampler, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Tip Top Taupe
Paper: Watermelon Wonder card stock, In Color Envelope Paper
Accessories: In Color Blossom Accents, Butterflys Thinlits, Big Shot, Hexagon Punch (flagged end), Glue Dots

And this second card uses the latest sketch from Mojo Monday. This time the color scheme is much cooler. And apparently I think of butterflies when I think of summer because um........
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic
Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Sky
Paper: Old Olive, Soft Sky & Whisper White card stock, In Color Envelope Paper
Accessories: Subtles Candy Dots, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals

Also, can I just mention the In Color Envelope Paper that I used on both cards? It's thinner than our other DP, which means you don't add weight or bulk to your creations, but you still get the fun prints! And at only $6.00 a package, it's a steal!

Now, go check out Cheryl's blog and hop all the way thru to see some awesome SUMMER inspiration!! And leave us your thoughts- we all love comments! *grin
