Color Chef Challenge #40

Tonight I made a card for a challenge blog that is new to me, Kelly’s Stamp Pad, where every Monday she has the Color Chef Challenge. The colors for this week were Black, Cream and Green. Here is my card that I made and will give to my hubbs for our 27th wedding anniversary later this week!

The papers and stamps are all by CTMH. I’ve embellished with some black gems from the dollar bin at Archiver’s, and ribbon, buttons and black hemp from my stash. I sanded my black cardstock, and inked around the edges of the cream cardstock and the green patterned paper in cocoa ink.

Thanks for looking!

CPS 155

Dreary winter in Minnesota… so I needed something bright! Here is the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #155 for this week:

And here is my take on it — I flipped it sideways.

My stamp image is from Teresa Collins — I love her sentiments and graphics! The papers are all from KI Memories. Thanks for looking!

2Sketches4U – Kazan #46

I haven’t done a 2S4U challenge for awhile, so this was fun to do. Here is the sketch:

I am enjoying my new Copic markers – I liked “coloring in the lines” as a little girl, and this brings me back to that time a little bit! This is another Digital Stamp purchased from Digistamp Boutique. I’ve colored her in using my Copics, and the flower paper is DCWV. I’ve used a Martha Stewart border punch (who by the way I am now boycotting but that is another post for another day); SU! and CM punches; rub-ons from CTMH, pearlies and ribbon from my stash. This card is going to someone very special… I hope she knows I made it with lots of love. Thanks for looking!

Waiting and Wishing for Spring, and CPS 153

I’m sitting at my desk by the window looking at 4′ tall berms of dirty snow alongside my front curb… there are coke-slurpee-like puddles in the street and under all that snow is the planter I put in last spring and I can’t wait to get flowers into it. It’s still at least two months until bulb flowers even have a chance at blooming! For me, February is the longest, not the shortest month! The card below is more for myself, but I’m sure I can think of somebody to send it to.

I recently purchased my first digital stamp from Bee-Crafty where there are some super sweet images. I also recently splurged on Copics, so I’m still getting my feet wet with those. Papers are Let’s Get Together by CTMH, with gems and ribbon from my stash.

My next card uses the same image and is my take on the CPS 153 sketch.

I used papers from Creating Keepsakes (from JoAnn’s), Heidi Grace rub-ons, a stamp from CTMH and some pearlies. I colored the girl in with Copics. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
