Suo only challenge-Happy Birthday

There is a new challenge over at Stampin Up Only challenge blog. For this challenge we were to make a birthday card. Sitting there on my table was the Create A Cupcake stamp set, so I Thought just use that.  And as I was going through my embossing folders, I found the SU Confetti Embossing folder and it had never been used.   Also, the center of the confetti embossing folder was an oval, so I used the Oval dies.  So, here is the outcome!

Thanks for stopping by, now go get those old stamps, dies, punches, and embossing folders out and make some cards.

The Paper Players: PP487-CAS with sparkle

was excited to stamp today and was looking for a challenge and happened to find this great challenge over at The Paper Players blog.  As I had already pulled out one of my old stamps (Motorcycle) again, I decided to use it to make yet another card and use it for this challenge for a CAS card and add some sparkle.  So here is my challenge card!

For this I used the red sparkle paper for the pennant, so cute!

Here is the first card I made and definitely like the one above better.

Thanks so much for stopping by and take out those stamps and get to work.

Owl Punch, Using Old Stuff

Well, saw my owl punch sitting on my shelf and thought wow let me use that old punch.  I had seen something like this on Pinterest so thank you Pinterest for the idea.  I also used a die cut I got at A C Moore ( hate they are going out of business) for very little, a Love Nichole feather die.  It seemed to match the theme of the card.  Alway remember to look at the old stuff. You can really make some great cards out of them.  Sentiment came from an old stamp-set by SU called Happiest Birthday Wishes.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday!

Stampin Up Only Challenge, Embossing

Well here I am again. how great is that. I am playing almost everyday with my stamps for at least 30 minutes or so.  I am just looking at my stamps and picking one.  Here is one I used called Apothecary Art, and then I water colored the flowers with a blending pen. tThe sentiment in the middle came from  Messages for Mom, another old stamp set.  I then used an embossing folder from Stampin Up, unsure of name, ran it through the big shot and then ran my white ink pad over the top.  You  just got to love it.  Thought this card would be great to send out for some encouragement right now.  

I am using this card for the Stampin Up Only challenge.  Hope you enjoy!

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Stampin up only challenge

Hi everyone! I’m back again with a card I created for the stampin up only challenge.  How great is that. Been a while since I did any challenges and this stay at home quarantine has got me stamping again.  Something I have always loved.

There challenge for this was a sketch challenge using one of the cards from the SU spring catalogue on page 42. I am so happy with the way this turned out. Here is my card using the butterfly dies and of course some old DS paper I had.  Sentiment came from stamp set six sided sampler.

Unsure of how this was going to turn out, but I love it.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Easter Weekend.

Lots of Stamping Going On!

During this Season in our lives, I seem to be reaching out to God even more so.  I love my Lord, but I think we seem to not pray or seek Him as much or praise Him when we are fine, no sickness, and everything is great.  So it really makes us think about how faithful God is to us all the time. He loves us even when we are slack.

Since we are quarantined to our homes right now and doing social distancing, I have also been stamping quite a bit over the last week.  I forgot the joy it brings to me.  Thankful God slows us down to bring joy into our lives.

I actually joined in on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Birthday weekend honoring Korin, owner of Sweet ‘n Sassy.  It was a blast.  I did some techniques I had not done in ages or at all.  Here are some of the cards I did.

Sponging inside and out

Using all my scraps, inside and out

Make a card with a pocket on it. Inside and out.

Paper piecing, loved it!

Color challenge

Acrylic Paint Swiping (so much fun)

Ink Blending on the butterflies! Loved doing this.

Ok, there you have it. My weekend fun! Hope you enjoyed looking and remember that God loves you and is still in control.  I am praying for our world and leaders during this time of uncertainty. May God heal our Land!
