Sparkle Christmas Card

I worked on this card for quite a while and made several revisions. I am still not sure I am crazy about the result, but I thought I'd post it any way. This is for the Sketch on the Techno Stamper Blog. It is fun to try and come up with original ideas. Good exercise for the brain.

Chilld Get Well Card

MojoMonday 109

I needed a get well card for a little girl that had surgery last week. So I used the sketch for the MojoMonday Blog. This is not my original design. I saw it on some one's blog quite a while ago, but don't remember where so can't give credit to the designer. Leave a comment if you know whose it is. I hope Ariana likes her card and I hope she gets well soon

Digital Scrapbooking Part 2

Digital Scrapbooking by Stampin' Up

The New Digital Program by Stampin' Up has been introduced and I wanted to share my first attempts at digital scrapping with you. I decided to use my new little grandson as the first subject for my attempts. I am having fun with this program and finding it easy to make great pages very quickly. I may have found a new way to continue my scrapbooking hobby. This product has been available to customers since the first of October. Contact me if you have any questions or are interested in purchasing this product. You can read more about it online by clicking HERE, or check the Holiday Mini Catalog.

In Colors and Razzle Dazzle

Razzle Dazzle is the first set I purchased from the new catalog, along with all the in colors. So far I haven't used the stamp set, and have only occasionally used the new colors. For today's challenge it was time to work with all of that and this is the result. I really like this set and the in colors are great with it. Those colors are really growing on me and I love working with them. They really make striking cards because the colors are so bold.

Stamp Set: Razzle Dazzle, Upsy Daisy (sentiment)
Papers: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
Inks: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay Markers, Basic Brown Ink
Accessories: Dusty Durango Polka Dot Gros Grain Ribbon, Earth Elements Brads

Simply Scrappin' Christmas Card

Hi, for today's Monday Lunchtime Challenge I decided to use the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit. Over the weekend I used my kit to design a stamp-a-stack class for later this month. There were a lot of elements left over, so I used some of them for this challenge. It was pretty easy, no stamping, just cut and paste. I love making cards with the SS Kits. You can get so many cards out of one, by just adding a little extra card stock.
Stamps: none
Papers: Old Olive Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Chocolate Chip Card Stock
Accessories: Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit, Sleigh Bells Old Olive Ribbon, Clear Rhinestone Brads, Modern Label Punch.

Upsy Daisy Thank You Card

Today I made another card for a sketch challenge on the Stamping 411 website. I had some left over card cutouts from my workshop on Saturday, so it added the additional challenge of using materials I already had on hand and making them work for this sketch. I already had a lot of Christmas and Fall cards, so decided on a thank you card, which I often need.
Stamp Sets: Upsy Daisy, Falling Leaves (sentiment)
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Kraft, Whisper White Card Stock, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP
Inks: Rose Red, Soft Suede
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Modern Label Punch, Earth Elements Brad, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, 1/16" hole punch.
