I love these colors!

Don't you just love these colors together? I made this card a couple weeks ago, and I forgot to post it! This Thank You card is made with the Mini-Catalog set called "Live Your Dream." It also uses the matching dsp called "Afternoon Tea." The colors I used are: Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White. It was quick, easy, and elegant. Just my style! Enjoy!

Simple, yet elegant...

Did you ever read Take Ten crafters' magazine? Every now and then I pick it up at the local craft store. Inside, it has a page divided into 4 sections of cs for you to try out. I usually forget it's in there, but I loved how the paper used both red and burgundy, which is a color combo I never would have thought of putting together. I used Bravo Burgundy and Real Red cs and ink, along with some Bravo Burgundy ribbon and some pewter brads. Just for fine, try using some off-beat colors on your next card! Have fun and be creative.

Get Well soon...

I finally talked myself into getting this set and I am SO glad that I did! "A Little Bird Told Me" is one of the cutest sets in the catalog. I like to make simple cards like this one to show how you don't always have to use tons of embellishments to make a great card. I used our fantastic In Colors; Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, and Groovy Guava, as well as Basic Black and Whisper White cs and ink. I don't know what I will do when these colors retire in August! AHHHH!

Cowboy Fun!

My 50% off coupon for my local craft store was burning a hole in my pocket, so I HAD to buy a K & Company paper pad. I loved these vintage childhood images and colors! I was able to use Chocolate Chip and Handsome Hunter ink and cs to match. I also used some jumbo pewter brads, "Print pattern" background, sentiment from "Lots of Thoughts" and some hemp twine to complete my birthday card. This would also be a fun Father's Day card. I hope you like it!

I love this set!

Here is a Sympathy card that I made with my new favorite SU! set called "Always." The bird in this set is amazing because you can give it subtle color w/ markers or watercolors to make it look really bohemian, which is very "in" right now. I used Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, and Whisper White inks and card stock. I also used "Afternoon Tea" dsp from the Occasions Mini. Get it while it is still available!!! I added some ribbon and some sponging for an worn effect. Enjoy!

Hey There Cupcake!!

Hi Everyone! Thanks for being patient with my blogging. I am lucky to post a few times a week! AHHH! Oh well, it's better than not sharing at all, right? Here is a cute card made from a clear acrylic Stampendous Set called "Hey There Cupcake." I fell in love with this set because I am a HUGE cupcake fan. I actually spent $6 on a gourmet cupcake in NYC and it was the best EVER! Worth every penny! Anyway, I also used SU! Berry Bliss dsp, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White cs and inks. Add a little ribbon and there you have it! I could just eat a cupcake right now!
