Unity Wishes

This is the first card I have made in a while.  I have all my Unity stamps for the past few months that haven't seen any ink yet!  Loved the color challenge on Splitcoast today and it is rainy outside, so I decided today is the day to create!  Unfortunately, half the day is gone and I only have this one card to show!  Took a while to get my mojo going and of course, there are always other things in the house that need to be taken care of!

Stamps:  Unity January 2010 Kit of the Month
Paper:  Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise, Certaily Celery, Whisper White
Ink:  Soft Suede
Extras:  Certainly Celery Wide Grograin, Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon, Blender pen and ink (for coloring flowers.

OCCC Challenge - You've Got Style

Wow, my second post today.  I guess this is what happens when the hubby leaves town!  I should be cleaning up, but who's going to notice - not the kids!  This card used Our Creative Corner's Sketch challenge.  I'm really liking the wide black satin I picked up at Hancock Fabric on clearance.  I should go back to see if they still have any left!
Stamps: Express Yourself (Verve)

Paper: Thoroughly Modern DSP, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Burmuda Bay, White

Ink: Black, Rich Razzleberry

Accessories: CM Oval Patterns & CCS, Craft Knife, Rhinestones, Wide Black Satin Ribbon (non-su), Razzleberry ribbon, Black grograin, CB Swiss Dots Folder

Mojo123 - Superstar

Here's my first card made with Verve stamps. What a fun stamp set! I used Mojo 123 as my inspiration. The wide ribbon got a bit wonky. I tried to use my CHI iron to iron the wrinkles out of the ribbon and I think it was a bit too hot! Oops! I used a bit of glitter pen on the main image to high light. Hard to capture with the camera.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Wings of Friendship

A quick and simple card I made this morning.  I picked up the La Creme matstack last week at Hobby Lobby and just love the papers in it.  I also recently received the Wings of Friendship stamp set.  This paper and the image seemed to go nicely together.  Behind the 3 rows of vanilla ribbon is a 1 1/2 inch wide piece of satin black ribbon.  It adds a nice sheen to the card.  Thanks for taking a peak at my creation today!

Flocking Fun!

Paper Craft Planet's Back to Basic's lesson this week (#6) is on Fuzzy Flock! Something I always thought was too mess to play with, but after seeing the tutorial it didn't look so bad. Plus, with a chance to win some prizes I had to play. So, I went to Michael's and picked up some of the Fuzzy Flock. Of course, I couldn't just pick up one container, I had to get two different sets of colors! Both cards today are using the Oh So Majestic set. I also have the Saltwater Taffy colors and hope to try those soon. I'm thinking I can make some fun cards for tween girls with the saltwater taffy colors!

On to the cards I made...The first one is using the Bundle of Joy set. I thought the flocking would be perfect for the giraffe's spots. I also used SCS's Color Challenge today CC240 and an old Sketch Challenge SC242.
The second card uses an old set (2000) Spooktacular Greetings. I thought the black cat would be perfect in black flocking. As I was playing I thought I would also add the flocking to the witch's hair. She needed some drama! I found an old scrap of paper that had some great colors for Halloween and used that as my color palette. The other papers are black, Apricot Appeal and Kiwi Kiss. The ribbon is the striped Kiwi Kiss with a piece of black grogain over it.
I can't wait to try the Saltwater Taffy colors. We'll see what later tonight or tomorrow brings. So glad to be back in the swing of creating! Maybe one of these days I'll actually figure out how to make my blog more attractive!
Blessings - Stacy
