1984 Stash Challenge #11

Recently we went through some old photos that my Grandmother had collected and I found this one of my mother, my sister and me.  I knew I wanted to scrap it and when I found this challenge I couldn't wait to give it a try!!

I really had a lot of fun and didn't use anything new on this layout.  Everything I used I already had on hand.  It felt great to use things and not go out and buy stuff just for this picture!

I can't wait to put this up on my wall and surprise my mother the next time she comes over!!

Merry Christmas wiith a challenge

This year I've decided to create stacks of holiday cards to sell to help make a little bit of "holiday" money.  I found a great starting point in the blog Paper Craft Crew Challenges. They have some wonderful card sketches and really got my juices flowing on my cards. 

Here is this weeks sketch. I love the simplicity in this sketch design and couldn't wait to use it.
 Here is my card.

Color and Sketch challenge Card

I saw the color challenge from the Paper Players over on Facebook and knew I had to play along.  I love the cool colors but wanted to create a non-holiday card (I will be going back and making a snowflake card with these colors).  Then I headed over to Deconstructed Sketch to find a sketch to use for this card and found this weeks challenge. 

Its been awhile since I've been able to sit for two days and create cards just for fun.  With working full time I find I'm exhausted when I get home and crafting has gone to the way side, so sad.


I did change the sketch a little and added a few more banners than shown here. I didn't use and embellishments on my card. I decided to let the glitter cardstock be the embellishment.
SS: hearts a flutter, cuddles & kisses
INK: pool party & midnight muse
CS: pool party, midnight muse, whisper white, glitter paper
ACCESS: hearts a flutter framelits, embossing folder

Here is a card I made for another great challenge.  It's so nice to have some free stamping time! This card is for a sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. I have to admit that I struggled with this one a bit.  Everything that popped into my head, that I thought would look good, just didn't work out. 


Bite Me! ColorQ challnge #210

I am loving the new photopolymer stamp set by Stampin' Up! called Bite Me! Halloween is my most favorite time of year so when I saw this set I knew I just had to have it! While browsing through challenge websites I found this great color challenge over on the ColourQ.  Wanting to do something different I created a Halloween card using this unique color palette.

 Here is my card for this challenge.  I pulled out several other Halloween items from my stash to use as well.  I love this pumpkin border punch (but it's the first time I've used it lol)
SS: bite me
INK: cajun craze, basic black
CS: tempting turquoise, cajun craze, basic black
ACCESS: spider web embossing folder, pumpkin border punch, black/white twine, 1" square punch, stamp punch

10 Minute Birthday Card!

I made this card for a challenge over on The Play Date Café and was pleasantly surprised when it only took me 10 minutes to complete! I don't think I've gotten a card done in the amount of time in quite a while.

Here is the inspiration for my card. I am loving all the neon/bright colors lately and this gave me a chance to play with some.
Here is my card. I stamped the background first in black onto the white cardstock base I was going to use and then re-stamped in the yellow and cut out the celebrate.
Supplies: stampset-the stamps of life, cardstock & ink-mftstamps, twine-American crafts
