Fab Friday 140

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday once again!  This week's Fab Friday challenge is all about the brand new in colors!  Boy are they bright!  I'm not a huge fan of primary colors, but these are growing on me!  Here's your chance to try them out if you haven't.  You can use any or all.  Which one is your favorite?  Your least favorite?  I think my favorite is Blueberry!  I wasn't a fan of Clover but it will grow on me and I'm really coming around to Lipstick!

I wasn't so sure I liked them all paired together but I think my card made me change my mind!  That's usually the case with our in color after I use them for a bit.  I thought they'd look great with Varied Vases and I wasn't wrong!

I think the only think to really note here, is that I stamped my orchid by stamping off once and then coloring the little centers with my Grapefruit Grove marker.  I was really unsure of this one starting out but I think it made a pretty adorable card!

Make sure to check out the rest of the design team and then play along with us and make friends with the new colors if you have not already!

Happy stamping!

Cue The Confetti

Hi stampers!  I'm back!  Jon was gone all this week and Ian kept me pretty busy so I didn't get around to blogging...again.  He did fall asleep for a bit yesterday so I managed to crank out one card while he snoozed on the couch!

Today, I'm going to show you the card that I gave a sneak peek of over the weekend on my IG.  I'm so happy the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set is in the new catalog!  It's such a cute set!  I will say I've had a bit of trouble using it without the rest of the retired suite (because it was just SO GOOD) but this set stands on it's own for sure!  This card could be a birthday card or used for any occasion that requires confetti!

I also sort of love these colors together!  I'm not sure of the last time I used Pacific Point but they color revamp has given it new life for me!  I paired it with Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Gorgeous Grape and it was perfect!  I added some of the new Glitter Enamel Dots and that SUPER fun Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon.

I just love all the little elements and accents in this set and they all worked so perfectly that I didn't even need a main image!

Big Time Thanks

Hi stampers!  I finally grabbed the framelits to go with the Animal Outing set!  I got this set at OnStage and have been anxiously awaiting the dies!  Don't forget you can order the bundle and geta discount!  Not only do they cut out the cute animals, but they cut out cute accents and backgrounds like this!

I colored my giraffe with my Blends, which are back in stock for the "old" colors now and hopefully the new colors will be available any day now.  SU updated us that they are on the way to the warehouse.

The one Shaded Spruce branch on this card is the key to the whole thing, by the way.  I first made it without and it was just missing something.  Added that in and ta-da!  The card was done!

Mailable Monday

Hi stampers!  So, posting last week didn't go as planned.  THREE HUNDRED kids at VBS wore me out (it was amazing of course, though)!  LOL!  Like I can barely survive my ONE most days  :-)  Speaking of which, I have NO clue how I'm going to get through the summer since today will be only my third day I've been alone with him.  The threenager phase is real right now and no nap is making the day seem 87 hours long!  At least we have the pool now and I promised to take him to see a movie this week (watch me pay big bucks to get in and he WILL fall asleep, lol).

Anyway, I managed to make a few cards over the weekend.  I have been struggling for ideas and time so when I sat down I knew I just wanted to simply stamp.  Paper and ink, that's it.  I seem to not have a lot of straight stamping sets right now but I did pull out the elephant bundle and whipped this up.

In hindsight, I should have just stamped the hearts on one side but it's still cute!  I love these little guys!  The new color, Granite Gray, was perfect for an elephant!

Hopefully Ian will learn to have some quiet time or at least play independently (without being totally quiet so I worry he's being naughty lol) this summer so I can stamp!  I got a whole big box of new goodies last week just about the minute VBS was over!

Zesty Monday

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday!  No rest for the weary over here!  After two busy weeks, we have one more with vacation Bible school.  My dad did the children's choir at our church for 30 years, yes THIRTY!  So, somehow with my "background" I ended up the worship team leader. :-)

Anyway, between practices (lol) I managed to throw a couple of cards together.  I'm really struggling to create right now and I can't exactly tell you why.  I did order some new goodies but they aren't here yet.  I have to say, I'm really loving this color combo though!  Shaded spruce, lemon lime twist and grapefruit grove were made for the Lemon Zest Stamp Set!

I used a post it note to cover and omit the "it" from this sentiment again so it could stand alone.  And who doesn't love this polka dot paper?  The 6 x 6 paper stacks are really great!

Wish me luck again today!

Happy stamping!
