Double Challenge..

My bff and fellow SBS-6 sister, Bree, posted a challenge last week to make a card in 15 minutes or less. Now usually it takes me that long just to cut all the paper but I happened to stumble across the perfect 15 min sketch by Jen Del Muro.

Supplies: Stamps: pun fun Paper: close to cocoa, pretty in pink, whisper white, berry bliss, purely pomegranate Ink: archival black Accessories: nestablities, prismacolors.

Live Your Dream..

My order from SU finally showed up!! I think it got caught up in Colorado or something? Anywho their new afternoon tea dsp line is absolutely fabulous! I'll probably end up buying a few more packets before its all said and done :) The card was supposed to be a 5.5 square but somehow I cut it to 5.5x5.25 (oops). I used my nestie's for all the squares and all the dsp is from afternoon tea. I will admit that the flower was a bugger to ink since su doesn't produce markers for all their in colors.

Supplies: Stamps: Live your dream Paper: soft sky, chocolate chip, afternoon tea Ink: soft sky, groovy guava, chocolate chip, blue bayou Accessories: nestabilities.

Kyle's Valentine..

First and foremost I want to say that I cased this punch ensemble from SCS. For reasons unknown to me I FORGOT to add that card to my favorites. If this punch ensemble is your original work PLEASE let me know so that I can give you the credit. The card base is a 10x5 sheet of groovy guava that I folded in half. I cut the river rock polka dot paper to 3 x 4.75. The punches are, in order from bottom to top: key tag; designer label, large oval, and word window. I watercolored the main image using groovy guava for the first flower and rose red and regal rose for the second.

PHEW, am I happy to be HOME!!

Again, I am sorry it has been over a week since my last post. My husband's grandmother in Oklahoma died on Saturday so we have been back and forth for the past few days. I PROMISE to check out my SBS-6 blogs and leave comments! This tin is for my grandmother for Valentines day. The patterned paper is by paper salon and the ribbon is SU's white taffeta. For the top of the tin I used my nestablities. The main image is from Papertrey's Sweet Love set.

Ginger Blossoms..

This is my submission for Bree's SBS6 weekly challenge (I'm a wee bit late). I promise Brianne I will do better this week!! My husband finally went back to work and I'm back to taking care of my out of control 2 year old; it's a lot more stressful that I had imagined! Ok now for my project-the tin is just a clear top 4 oz tin that I purchased from specialty bottle. I covered the bottom part of the tin with SU's new ginger blossom paper. For the lid I just stamped the blossom image from the new embrace life set onto ww cardstock and then watercolored the flowers. After the coloring I matted the main image onto a scalloped river rock circle.

Embracing Birthday...

ah, you've got to love uplines that have EVERY set SU has ever sold!! I borrowed her embrace life set to make this card. I watercolored the main image again; I know you can't tell in the picture but there's a soft sky "shadow" around the flower. The designer paper is SU's ginger blossom. Even though it looks like the base of my card is a lime color its actually river rock. The next layer is groovy guava.
