Razzleberry Thinking of You

This card came together quickly using some scraps laying on my table that I had left over from some other cards.
I embossed some Rich Razzleberry with the Argyle folder and then cut off the edge with the Large Scallop edgelit.  The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations and the image is from Serene Silhouettes.  My color combination for this card is Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Old Olive and Baja Breeze.

Happy Thoughts

Today's card is another simple one using a Crumb Cake base.  I added a few scraps of Floral District designer series paper and a sentiment on an Apothecary accents framelit cut out.

I added some stitched grosgrain ribbon and a neutral button with some bakers twine through the middle.  The sentiment is from the Field Flowers stamp set.

Button Christmas

You will have to forgive me if I have posted this already, my mind gets a little fuzzy from lack of sleep during harvest.  Fortunately the end is in sight! 

 The is a super quick card using Festival of Prints dsp and Wacky Wishes stamp set.  I added a labels collection framelit cut out and some buttons and put it all on Crumb Cake card stock.

Raspberry Adventure

This week our challenge at Late Night Stampers includes tearing. 

I used some Naturals Composition specialty paper and also a layer of Primrose Petals that I embossed with the Chevron folder.  The background is stamped with Primrose Petals ink as is the sentiment. 

Behind the sentiment I added a strip of Victoria Crochet trim ribbon and a small piece of Crumb Cake tulle and tied knots in each end.

Poppy Birthday

Another simple card to put together using the Pleasant Poppies and Curly Cute stamp sets.  I didn't emboss the whole layer of Pool Party so that I could add my sentiment at the bottom.

God is Love

I made a few bookmarks for the Sunday School children in my church that received their Bibles  this fall.  They are very simple ones using the Trust God stamp set and Orchard Harvest designer series paper.
I added some stitched satin Raspberry Ripple ribbon (this is the kind you can get FREE this month with a $40 purchase!!) and linen thread to the top along with a shrink plastic charm.

For the charm, I used Black Stazon ink and on the bookmark, I used Crumb Cake.

Stepped up card

This is basically the same card that I shared with you yesterday, but I stepped it up just a little bit adding a few more elements.
There is a Labels collection framelit that has been embossed with the Striped folder on the left side and a strip of More Mustard card stock that I ran through the Big Shot with the adorning accents edgelits on the right. 
Finally a brushed bronze button with linen thread through it and a change of base color to make the card just a little bit different.

Fall thank you

This is really a quick and simple card to put together.  I did not cut out the jar on this one, only one of the flowers and I used the smallest oval punch for the thank you. 
There is some ink splatter on the Very Vanilla piece that I created with the color spritzer tool.

Tea Cups

My Morning Cup stamp set hasn't been used in awhile so I pulled it out for this card.  Again, scraps of designer series paper - Festival of Prints and First Edition are the base of this card. 
I stamped on both the base of the card and on some other scraps of dsp with the tea cups and cut out a few of the tea cups and pasted them onto the card.
The sentiment is from Friendly Phrases and I added a little bit of 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon that I cut apart.

Polka Dots and Stripes

Polka dots and/or stripes are the challenge this week at Late Night Stampers.  I chose to use both on this card adding each with impressions folders. 
Raspberry Ripple, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla are the card stock colors and I used More Mustard for the sentiment and also some More Mustard ribbon (it is the back side of the scallop dotted ribbon).

No Stamping

Today's card doesn't have any stamping at all on it.  I used a fun piece from the Fan Fair designer series paper for my image and sentiment.
The rest of the card just consists of Comfort Cafe designer series paper, regals buttons and Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Midnight Muse and Early Espresso card stock.

Halloween pages

The scrapbook pages I am sharing with you today were made for a customer.  I used the Toxic Frameable Digital Designer Template kit for the page on the left and printed it out on my computer.  It is only $3.95 and it is a great deal! 
I added some Howlstooth and Scaringbone designer series paper and some images from the Googly Ghouls stamp set.

I also did a layout with some retired Halloween paper and the Wicked Cool Stamp set.

Wacky Boots

Well, the boots are not actually wacky, but the sentiment comes from the stamp set Wacky Wishes :)
I again used Black embossing powder on the boot and "kick up yer heels image" and colored it in with markers.  The designer paper is from Polka Dot Parade and I added some more polka dots with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.

Creative Happiness

This card uses some Orchard Harvest designer series paper, I must like that huh?  I have also used the Pursuit of Happiness and Creative Elements stamp sets and my ink colors are Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and Bravo Burgundy. 
Around the edge of the scallop circle, I use the paper piercing tool and a template.
Hope you enjoy the card!

Just for You

It seems I am addicted to this stamp set and the colors in the Orchard Harvest designer series paper.  Hopefully I don't overload you with samples!
For this one, I added some Bashful Blue with an Aqua Painter to the jar so it looks like there is water inside for the flowers.

Hearts in One Layer

Our late night stampers challenge this week is a one layer card with a technique on it.  These are always hard ones for me to do and I never seem to be happy with what I come up with.
I did a few different variations of the same idea, the first one has the edges sponged with both Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede.

This one has the hearts outlined with Soft Suede...and I used Platinum shimmer paint instead of Champagne mist on this one.

On this one I eliminated all the sponging...

And the final one didn't have the Framed Tulips folder on the edges.

First Day

Today I am sharing another digital page that I created this week, since I scrap in 12" x 12", I am going to make yesterday's page and today's into hybrid projects. 
The Storytime elements were used for this page, there are so many cute embellishments and stamps that go with the paper on this one it is hard to pick!

A Matter of Moments

I have been working on some digital pages the last month and actually sending them to print (which I usually don't do often) so I can  take advantage of the awesome 31% savings!  Don't forget that this will end on the 14th so hurry and get the sale downloads and order your prints!
On this page, I used elements from the Downtown Grunge set and Elements of Style.

September Stamp Club

These are the projects we had for Stamp Club this month.  The layout uses the Storytime designer series paper although I didn't use any of the images since I try to make the layouts fairly generic.

Another card using the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and Orchard harvest designer series paper.

And a baby card using the Patio Party designer series paper,  Doilies stamp set and Baby Prints stamp set. (sorry about the blur on this one!)

Thinking of you

Today I have two cards to share with you, both very quick and simple, using two different styles of designer series paper.
For the first one, I used two patterns from the International bazaar dsp, and added some Marina Mist, Whisper White and Early Espresso.

On the second one, I chose Comfort Cafe designer series paper and added some Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede and Summer Starfruit.
The sentiment in each is from Sassy Salutations.

Orchard Harvest Decor

Our Late Night Stampers challenge this week is Fall projects and I decided to go with some decor instead of a card.  The base of this is a 11 x 14 canvas and I wrapped some ribbon around the edges using sticky strip.
The squares are the large ones from the scallop squares duo die.

I used some neutrals and regals buttons and a retired big button along with some textures and shapes cut out using the Labels collection framelits and apothecary accents framelits.  I used were Chevron, Fancy Fan and Vintage Wallpaper.

The sentiments are from Harvest Blessings.

Have a great day!

Wacky Wishes

These cards were made with some scraps of retired designer series paper that I had laying around.  I used the Wacky Wishes stamp set for the sentiment and the Stripes folder for the background on each of them.
The ribbon is the white organza  one that I love to work with and I have used Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango for my card stock colors.
