Chocolate Cake!

Here is another set I used the fun Stampin' Blends on! These are quickly becoming my favorite toy and I only have the darks! I would absolutely recommend these to anyone!

For today's card I used the latest card sketch on Splitcoaststampers.com. I haven't used their card sketches in years, no exaggeration. But I follow them on facebook and it showed up in my feed and I really liked it!

And this will be another card in my upcoming class!

Just Breathe

Happy Monday to you! I have big plans to create this week, but we'll see what each day brings, won't we? ha... Four of the five of us had a nasty cold over the last two weeks, and I've cleaned and done laundry and all the things trying to get rid of it. Here's hoping we stay well for a while!

Here is another cute, simple card we'll do at my upcoming class! This one uses what was the current Clean & Simple sketch, haha! and I think I kept it extra clean and simple... I like the falling cherry blossoms as a reminder to breathe, take it easy, relax, calm down, whatever it is you need. But class attendees can really use any greeting they want.
Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Ink: Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach & Whisper White card stocks
Accessories: Linen Thead

Hello baby!

I am working on putting a card class together, and I am very excited to say that yesterday I got three cards completely designed! Yeay craft time!!

To start, I thought I'd try the Stampin' Blends on something I haven't pulled out in a while- Moon Baby! I used a sketch that was posted last week on the Clean & Simple blog, as my starting point.
My card ended up kind of simple but I think it's very cute! It's also mail-able if you need it to be! Can't beat that!
Stamps: Moon Baby
Ink: Memento Black, Blushing Bride, Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends marker, Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends marker, Ivory Stampin' Blends marker, Color Lifter Stampin' Blends marker
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight & Whisper White card stocks
Accessories: White Perfect Accents

December's Paper Pumpkin!

My kids had a four day weekend so once again I feel like I'm having to adjust to real life!

You know, I may not always love the kit that shows up each month, but I am always glad to have the supplies already prepped to put together a quick card when I need one! This time I needed a birthday card for someone you'd think I'd know by now to plan for...but there I was, pulling out my kit probably an hour past mail time to get it to her house on her big day!
And I do like this kit so that helped! Tho if I'm being honest, I only made one of the two designs. The layering is fun and I like the colors too!
I'm hoping to complete more of my kits in the coming weeks and of course I will share them with you!

Are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber? What was your favorite kit? If you are not, did you know that a pre-paid subscription for a period of time (3, 6 or 12 months) will earn you Sale-A-Bration items?? It is a handy way to get it all and have fun delivered to your door! Let me know if you need help- otherwise, click on the Paper Pumpkin button on my side bar to sign up!

Blog Hop: Stepped Over Sale-A-Bration!

Happy New Year to you! I hope you had a safe and happy celebration! I enjoyed a fun night at home - we always let the kids stay up late and play new games we get for Christmas and eat junk food, haha...
Anyway, a new month comes with this new year, and we are still going strong with our monthly blog hop! We have a fresh new look, and plenty of ideas to inspire your own creativity!
Wednesday is January 3rd and both the new Occasions Mini and the new Sale-A-Bration Mini become available for you to order from at noon. And so, I am featuring a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and once again showing off the Stampin' Blends markers that have been available, and are now part of the Occasions Mini!
I had to get this stamp set first, even tho there are three sets I absolutely love...and, you should also note the fine print on the inside cover, that there will be more Sale-A-Bration items coming February 16! But let me show you why this one had to be first, haha... ignoring the half un-decorated tree, (toddler in the house!) what else stands out to you? Those hyper-green shoes in the bottom corner? I know! Seriously! haha.... That was the most-wished-for item under the tree! 
So here is my first card. I used the sketch from the new Inky Friends Design Challenge for the sketch.
Stamps: Epic Celebrations
Ink: Memento Black, Lemon Lime Twist, Smoky Slate, Dark Night of Navy Stampin' Blends Marker, Color Lifter Stampin' Blends Marker
Paper: Whisper White & Lemon Lime Twist card stocks, Naturally Eclectic DP
Accessories: Silver 1/8 inch ribbon, Dimensionals

And my second card is the same, just different color scheme, and I ended up using different DP. I meant to use the same pack, buuut when you create in shifts, and you got both packages of paper out in the planning phase this is what happens! hahaha..... 

Stamps: Epic Celebrations
Ink: Memento Black, Berry Burst, Smoky Slate, Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker, Color Lifter Stampin' Blends Marker
Paper: Whisper White card stock, Delightful Daisy DP, Color Theory DP
Accessories: Old Olive mini chevron ribbon, Dimensionals

Same card, different look- perfect for two different people! Do you have a favorite? 

Hop on over to Cheryl's blog using the button below, and then hop thru and see what everyone made. You won't be disappointed! 
And Happy New Year!!
