FTL #104

My poor craft room has been so neglected! It's hard for me to spend time in there in the summer (it's so hot with no a/c), but don't feel sorry for it, it gets plenty of love in the winter:) I did manage to whip out this quick card last night though. I have seen other people make cute DSP with their Fox and Friends' critters and I thought this sketch was perfect for it:) I also used this colour challenge:

For some reason, I'm drawn to making these baby cards that have multiple colours in them. I think in my mind they are meant to be gender-neutral, but A LOT of pink always finds its way in.....not so gender-neutral afterall:)

-rose red and whisper white cardstock
-rose red DSP
-pretty in pink satin ribbon
-"Fox and Friends" stamp set
-rose red, old olive, so saffron, and pretty in pink ink

Ahhhh....vacation has been great, but now that we are back home, it means it's time to get back to my craft room:) I made this cute hippo card intended to be given to parents of a newborn...but I happened to sell it to someone whose granddaughter loves hippos. I guess it does work as a birthday card too:)

Embellish with Birds

I love me an Embellish challenge and this one is no exception:) Plus I hadn't inked up my "Happy Together" stamp set so what a perfect challenge to use it for:) I didn't come up with this card all by myself, I did get the inspiration for it from elsewhere, bt I didn't jot down the person's if you recognize it, it was probably you:) I changed it up a bit, chaning the colours, ribbon and adding some texture. The colours to use were pink, brown and green and here's what I came up with:

-whisper white and old olive cardstock
-melon mambo and chocolate chip ink
-perfect polka dot embossing folder
-chocolate chip satin ribbon
-brown button from stash
-"Happy Together" stamp set

Clean and Simple #100 & #101

For Sketch #100, I had a pretty good idea as to what I wanted to do but I needed some help choosing the colour, so I went to my new colour coach (which I LOVE) and found this combo: old olive, pumpkin pie, and rich razzleberry. Here's what I came up with:

-crumb cake and whisper white cardstock
-pumpkin pie grosgrain ribbon
-paper piercing tool
-old olive, rich razzleberry, and basic black ink
-scalloped edge punch
-razzleberry lemonade DSP
-"Garden Silhouettes" and "Garden Greetings" stamp sets
-Congratulations stamp from stash

For Sketch #101 I didn't need my colour coach. Instead I used one my tried and true favourite combos: pumpkin pie and chocolate chip:) It even sounds delicious!

-pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, crumb cake, and whisper white cardstock
-Sweet Pea DSP
-scallop trim border punch
-chocolate chip satin ribbon
-pumpkin pie and chocolate chip ink
-"Garden Silhouettes" and "Happy Moments" stamp sets
