Been Busy Today!


Jen70 from SCS had a challenge posted on her blog yesterday to make a tent topper card with NO flowers! So today when I brought a few supplies upstairs I didn't bring any primas or flower stamps up with me so I would not be tempted to use anything! I tend to use a lot of flowers lately....LOL
This was a simple card and I LOVE making tent topper cards.
I'm going to make tent toppers for my swap. Suppose I should work on those soon eh?!
OK back to the cards from today!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Wild About You
Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Barely Banana, Whisper White and Basic Grey DP
Inks: Brocade Blue, Barely Banana and Black Stazon
Accessories: Scalloped Punches, Grosgrain Ribbon and Paper Piercer


Jen from I{heart}2Stamp had a sketch posted yesterday. I really enjoy doing her sketch challenges each week! Be sure to check them out...so much fun! I know Jen had a square posted in the middle but I opted to use a star chipboard covered in paper instead. Then I used the Word Window Punch with sayings from the So Many Sayings(hostess set).
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: So Many Sayings
Cardstock: Brocade Blue and Basic Grey DP
Inks: Brocade Blue
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Chipboard and Grosgrain Ribbon and Dimensionals
This card was from Beate's weekend sketch challenge on her blog. If you haven't checked out her work you MUST! She has fantastic designs and she is so inspiring.
She gave a layout and some measurements to follow. Very well explained!
I like this fold, it's one I've not done before but will definitely do it again for sure!
I love this Basic Grey DP with the SU! Wild About You stamp set. So cute!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Wild About You
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Whisper White and Basic Grey DP
Ink: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Black Stazon
Accessories: Misc Brads, Grosgrain Ribbon and Paper Piercer
This card was made with some of the left over paper I had in front of me. I was kind of lazy and didn't want to go back to the basement to get another stamp set so I kept this one very simple.
