Card of the Day

Happy Monday Stampers! Today's project is not really a card but a calendar instead. I found an awesome template for a calendar on SCS that is almost exactly like the Create-a-Calendar in the Holiday Mini. You can find it here posted by Cat. She did a fantastic job making this template for us to enjoy! I printed the months on whisper white cardstock per the instructions on the post. I altered it with designer series paper (DSP) and used my Zutter Bind-it-all machine to put the spiral on it. I covered the back of each month with DSP but wish I hadn't bothered. It really didn't add to it all that much - not worth the time and effort. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! Enjoy!

The details:
Stamps: Misc stamps for each month
CS: Misc DSP, W White (cover is washington apple DSP, riding hood red)
Ink: Many
Other: template off of SCS, die cut flowers, button bouquet, riding hood red striped ribbon

Today's post is a card that I did for this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast (SC210). I kept my design very simple. I have barely been able to fit the stamping in so why push it trying to be really creative! Enjoy!

Ink: bravo burgandy, so saffron
Other: so saffron brads

Another Card

I have really been into my stamping this week! I made another card tonight and wanted to share before bed (I even skipped watching Gray's Anatomy to stamp!). This card is a CASE of a beautiful card I saw on splitcoast here. If the stamp set does not look familiar it's because it is going to be one of the new sets in the upcoming catalog! The inside says "have a honey of a day" - isn't that cute!? Enjoy!

The Details:
Stamps: Just buzzin by, itty bitty backgrounds, sanded
CS: more mustard, ruby red, choc chip, watercolor
Ink: choc chip, more mustard, ruby red, black stazon
Other: more mustard grosgrain, stapler, dimensionals

Card of the Day

Hello Stampers! I had a new "Stalkee" today. I stalked the "Stampin Pretty" blog and found a card using the most gorgeous paper that I have ever seen! It is going to be new in the SU catalog and it is called Raspberry Tart. I usually don't get that wound up about DSP but this one is da bomb. It will be my paper of the month at my next club meeting.

I didn't vary much from the creator's original card. I didn't put as many details into it as she did, not that I didn't love it that way, just trying to make it more simple for a class. Here is the original here. Enjoy!

The Details:
Stamps: All Holidays
CS: white, rose red, pretty in pink, kiwi kiss, raspberry tart dsp
Ink: rose red
Other: rose red grosgrain, pretty in pink grosgrain, 5 petal punch, 3/4" circle punch

Breaktime is over - back to blogging!

Hello Stampers! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready to get back to stamping! To get me back in the groove a little, I did some blog stalking. I came across one that was new to me and I absolutely love it! It is called "Stamping A Latte" by Jodi Collins. She does beautiful work and uses a lot of Stampin Up! I have CASE'D a few of her cards and will be posting them here each day this week. I guess you could say that she is my "stalkEE" of the week!

I didn't make many changes to the original, I just made mine more simple with less layers. I loved the original but wanted to make this one for a possible camp or club card. Here is the original here. I will give you a little hint, if you have trouble getting smooth edges when you cut out your hearts, smooth them down with a sanding block.


The Details
Stamps: Always
CS: Tangerine Tango, Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss
Other: Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, dimensionals
