Two for One

Monday, February 25, 2013

Here is the second card I made from this old Card Patterns sketch.

I decided I was going to make the best of the scrapping time I had the day I made this card, and use up some scraps!  (The first card I made from this sketch that afternoon is found here.)
This card base is, maybe Handsome Hunter...or maybe a green from a variety pack I bought somewhere else.  I'm not sure because it was a half sheet I found amidst one of the various piles of 'stash' that is reinhabiting my stamping room.  The striped DP mat is from an unlabled pack of 8x8 paper I bought at a thrift store.
My SU! supplies include the Real Red DP mat, the Real Red and Garden Green CS for the flower, the Chocolate Chip ribbon and the stamps and ink.
Once again I chalked the Petaloo flowers with Stampin' Pastels and inserted some shiny gold brads.  A few pearls at the points of the sentiment and I was done!  Weeee!  Two for One!  =)

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm always blessed to know you've been here.


No One Like You

Happy Friday Morning!

I've been on a stamping spree here.  I made four cards in three days!  I shared one a few days ago and I have another of them for you today.

I used an old Card Patterns sketch as my jumping off point.

 I wanted the Perfect Plum CS from SU! to be a focus, so I opted not to use the square mat from the sketch.  The yellow CS is So Saffron and the DPs are from the Floral Stack by DCWV.   The scalloped circles are from My Mom's Attic at and I cut all the shapes with eCal on my Eclipse.  I stamped the SU! flower and sentiment with So Saffron and Perfect Plum inks.  The Petaloo flowers were colored with SU! Stamping Pastels in Perfect Plum.  A few brads and an Old Olive bow and voilá!

Wow!  'Reliving' this card makes me want to go straight to my stamping room and indulge!  But I can't! =(  I have to go to an appointment later this morning.

There's always tomorrow, though! =)

Have a blessed day!  Thanks for stopping in.


I'm Back...with Mojo Monday 281

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Hi all!  I've been spending a lot of time in my stamping room lately.  Weee!  Does it ever feel good!

As I've been visiting around to some of the blogs I follow, I've been inspired to try out some new challenges.  The first one I'm taking a stab at is Mojo Monday.  There is a weekly sketch there and I decided to join in the fun this week.

I used SU! Perfect Plum CS for the base and a scrap of a digi paper designed by Trina Clark from for the Top Note die cut.  The two circles are hand made paper......made by me!! (or one of my daughters! HaHa!)

The top layer of the Petaloo flower was colored with SU! Perfect Plum marker and has an antique gold finished mini brad in the middle.  The sentiment is from SU! and is stamped with SU! Perfect Plum on Very Vanilla CS.

A little distressing with the scissors and Crumb Cake ink on some edges, a scrap of lace, a piece of ribbon and a linen thread bow finish this off.

Fast and fun is what this card was!  And it uses my fave color....purple!  How much better can it get?

Oooo!  I just remembered.....except for the card base, all the CS or DP was scraps!  Weee!  It did get better!  =)

Have a blessed day!  And thanks for stopping by.
