Celebrate, Good Times, Come on!

Once again, I was running around with my head cut off because I totally forgot to create a birthday card for a party I went to last Saturday. Not my most favorite but eh, we all have those times sometimes and I do NOT perform well under pressure.

I believe the layout may have been from someone's challenge, I can't remember. Also, another under used set of mine!

I took the color combo from the tab: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, So Saffron and Soft Sky.

The Deets:
Stamps: Celebrate Everything, Eat Cake
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Soft Sky, and So Saffron DSP (hostess paper pack)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Versa-mark, Soft Sky
Misc: Cloth Tag, Embossing, Stamp-a-majig

Thank You!

For a stamp set that I had to absolutely have, I haven't really used Fresh Cuts very much.

I've found it somewhat difficult to use when I am not utilizing a square card or a 3"x6" but I really like the simplicity of this one. Not only that but I think the punching on the side adds a neat element of surprise.

The Deets:
Stamps: Fresh Cuts
Paper: Kraft Card Stock, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Punches: Scallop Edge, Designer Label, Spiral
Misc: Choc. Chip Ribbon

Color Inspiration #22

I cant believe how fast my little break went by! Anyways, I am back and ready to stamp!

I needed to ease myself back into stamping and figured Kristina's Color Challenge would be a great place to start.

These were the colors we had to use:

I've never stamped with Bravo Burgundy and was very surprised at how dark it was. At first I thought I had grabbed the wrong ink but no, it really is that dark.

I had set out to make a birthday card for a friend and somehow came up with this.

What a great simple card! I could still use this as a birthday card but I think I may just save it for a rainy day when someone could use a little pick-me up.

Hope you enjoy!

The Deets:
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White and Rose Red
Ink: Soft Sky, Rose Red, Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy
Stamps: Tres Chic, Spring Solitude
Accessories: Scallop Edge, Pretties Kit, Whisper White Taffeta and acrylic flower
