Birthday Wishes

Hello stampers,
     Today's card was made at Kerri's February card class at the beginning of the month, just in time for me to send out some for February birthdays except for the fact they sat at my computer longer than they should have.
     Whisper White Card Stock was used for the base of the card & the colored strip, where we stamped the tree from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp set through the strip onto the base & the sentiment from the retired Sincere Salutations Stamp Set using Early Espresso Ink. Next, we used an already made moon & scenery mask from post-it notes to add color to the strip of Whisper White Card Stock using Peakaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight & Pear Pizazz Ink with a dauber before adhering it to the card. I love the look of the scenery colors that these 3 colors make.

BSU021418

Hello stampers,
     Sorry, I've not been in a stamping mood lately, last time I stamped was 2 Sundays ago at Kerri's monthly class. Instead, I got my genealogy bug back & have been working on that for the last week. Have to figure out so I have time for both!! So when I went to bed last night I had a thought for a card stirring in my brain that I thought I would try to attempt today if I could find the stamp that I wanted to use. Only to start my process & realize that today's BSU challenge is totally different than I thought it was. Don't you HATE that when it happens? That's ok, I was able to change it up rather easily & I still may do the other card I was thinking of for last week's challenge that I missed.
     For today's BSU challenge it is all about the colors- Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Basic Black & Whisper White. I started with a Whisper White Card Stock layer, stamping it with hearts from the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set in Real Red & Pink Pirouette Ink. Next, I took this layer over to the Big Shot & used the Large Letters Framelits to spell out the word "LOVE" to do the Eclipse Technique. I layered this piece onto Basic Black Card Stock before adhering the letters to it using Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish off the card I adhered this all to a Real Red Card Stock base. Voila!
     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.

BSU013118

Hello stampers,
     WOW am I glad that January is almost over! It's been a rough 2 weeks with my husband getting sick with what we thought was food poisoning but then he ended up in the hospital all of last week. So between hospital trips, taking care of our cats & fosters, trying not to get any sicker myself it was a doozy. So I'm trying to get back into a groove with my stamping with this week's BSU challenge. We decided to change a few challenges around this year & this week is our 1st sketch challenge that was made by Carol.
     Today's card I made for my hubby, as we are celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I started with a Whisper White Card Stock base, where I wrapped the Linen Thread around the front of the card. Next, I used the Waterfront Stamp Set to stamp on Whisper White Card Stock a scene using Daffodil Delight Ink- Sun, Crumb Cake Ink- Mountains, Pear Pizazz Ink-grass, Garden Green Ink- Trees & Marina Mist- water. I used a sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set & stamped it using Garden Green Ink before attaching this piece to Crumb Cake Card Stock & adhering it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Try your hand at the sketch & show us your take on the sketch!

BSU Challenge 011718

Hello stampers,
     The BSU challenge of the week is a color combo of Sweet Sugarplum, Smoky Slate, Basic Black & White.
     I started the card using Smoky Slate Card Stock as the base, followed by a layer of Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock that I had stamped with the lace stamp from the Southern Serenade Stamp Set using Smoky Slate Ink. For the stamped image, I used the above set again to stamp the flowers in Memento Black Ink, then coloring in the image using the Sweet Sugarplum & Smoky Slate Marvelous Markers, before adding it to a layer of Basic Black Card Stock.

     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.

Panda Birthday

Hello stampers,
     Today I have another birthday card for you using another SAB set. I just love bears of any kind & thought these were so cute to not order them. I wasn't sure exactly where I would go with this card but I like the end result & hope you do as well.
     I started with a Whisper White Card Stock base & also used it for the stamped image. I stamped one of the pandas from the SAB Party Pandas Stamp Set using Memento Black Ink coloring in the balloon with the Light Cherry Cobbler Blends. Next, I masked the panda & then stamped the cloud from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Soft Sky Ink that had been stamped off once. The sentiment is also from the Party Pandas Stamp Set & was stamped using Memento Black Ink. I layered the stamped piece on Cherry Cobbler Card Stock before adhering it to the card base. Really a simple card to make!
