This was my submission for the SCS challenge for Clean And Simple cards. We were to make a card based on the sketch card. I used the new SU! set Greenhouse Garden and love the images the 2-step stamping produced. This was a quick card to make, which for me, is a must for the CAS challenges. Find out more about this challenge HERE.
Stamps: Greenhouse Garden
Ink: Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write markers
Paper: Whisper White (textured and smooth), Rich Razzleberry, Cottage Wall DSP
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot grosgrain ribbon (I used reversed side)

DC114 Let's CASE It!

I submitted this card for the SCS Demonstratable Cards challenge. We were to CASE a card from a current SU! catalog or mini. Find out more about the challenge HERE. I like how this turned out.

Stamps: Wild West Alpha, Baroque Motifs

Ink: Soft Suede and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write markers

Paper: Soft Suede, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay cardstock

Accessories: Circle Rhinestone brad, Basic Black grosgrain ribbon, 1 3/4" Circle Punch

My 10 year old daughter liked my card so much that she CASE'd it. She used the Seriously Sassy stamp set and So Saffron and Lavender Lace cardstock. She did a great job!

Ok, I did the color challenge again! Here is my newest creation, which uses a retired Stampin' Up! set called Seaside. This color combo really reminded me of the beach. Thanks for looking!

Color Combo creation- CC226

I am going to try to take part in more online challenges. Shouldn't be hard to do "more" since as of now, I take part in zero challenges.

This is the Splitcoast Stampers Color Combination #226. You can find out more about this challenge at CC226. This week's colors are Tempting Turquoise, Baja Breeze, Creamy Caramel, and Apricot Appeal. I made a very quick and easy 4x4 card using two new sets: Medallion and Teeny Tiny Wishes. I did not use Apricot Appeal, and used a turquoise rhinestone brad in the center of the popped-up medallion. I may try this combo again, as I really think these are beachy colors and would look great with my retired Seaside set. I'm anxious to play with my new stuff though, so we'll see!

New stampin' stuff is here!

New stuff!

And yes, those are Stampin' Write Markers in the new In Colors!!

My Hodgepodge Hardware is the old finish....I need the new Styled Silver finish. It would look great with this card.
