Mother's Day Hello

I'm not stamping much right now, I have a ton of stuff going on taking up my time, but I did sit down today and create this card for my stepmom for Mother's Day. She loves the color red and enjoys birds so I combined that for this card. I kept it nice and simple, stamping the images and creating a little backyard scene. The images are from the MFT set I'm Tweet on You.

Saying Thanks for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday, I hope you are having a great day! I'm laying low today...my youngest had prom yesterday and I was non stop with him and his friends until after midnight. It was fun seeing them have such a good time but boy what a long day! Thankfully there is a new challenge from Sunday Stamps to help me relax!

This week we have a color challenge. Color challenges are really hard for me, I prefer sketches. I think it's because sketches are usually so cut and dry, and color challenges can really go in different directions. With these particular colors I just kept it simple, I didn't want anything overwhelming.

I used a mix of MFT and SU products to create this card.

Head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us!

A Merry and Bright Christmas

I took a break from working in my yard Monday to play along with the newest SPD sketch. I haven't made a Christmas card in a while so I decided to pull out an SPD set that I hadn't used yet, Merry Makers.

I colored the elf in with Copics and stuck with traditional Christmas colors. I thought about coloring the bulbs yellow and blue but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I can't help it, I'm a bit particular when it comes to things like that!

The patterned paper is retired from SU and continues that traditional color theme. My banners were cut from SU Real Red and Garden Green. I wanted a place for my sentiment so I added the banner below the circle.

Thanks for stopping by! Only 249 days until Christmas :)

More Moose for Sunday Stamps

I'm still alive! April is a busy month around here...my nephew (who lives with us) is graduating, prom is this month and both my boys are going, my junior has baseball, we have several road trips happening, all of this on top of the regular work week so my crafting time is pretty much nonexistent! Of course I did find time to create my card for Sunday Stamps, I love this great team!

Right now in Alaska the moose are all over the place....cows are pregnant and will be giving birth soon and with 14 hours of daylight they are really visible in the mornings and evenings now. I still had the MFT Warm and Fuzzy Friends kit on my desk so I used the moose in that set to create my card!

I stuck to the sketch and if you've been to my blog before I like to keep things simple, I'm not big on embellishments. This card is proof of that! I like the moose with the small sentiment under him and didn't feel like I needed to add anything else to the card.

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along! We also have a new team member, Heidi Baks! You may recognize her name from the Friday Mashup blog, and I am so excited to be working on a team with her still!

Friendship is an Adventure

This week The Paper Players have a great sketch and I wanted to hurry up and get a card done before the challenge was up. The sketch was a perfect excuse to break out the card kit I got from MFT a few weeks ago. The kit has a moose stamp, how could I resist!

I used some Milk Chocolate CS for my base and to create the 3 panels I used papers from the Trail Mix paper pack. I love the colors in this pack, they are fabulous! My images were colored with Copics and then cut out with the coordinating dies that come with the kit. Easy peasy!


Thanks for stopping by!

Color My World

Happy Sunday! I spent the day in Anchorage yesterday and forgot to set up my Sunday Stamps post for today, oops!

This week at Sunday Stamps we have a fun color challenge....rainbow colors. I immediately thought of the Color My World stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I grabbed my copic markers and got to work!

This card is really simple. I just took the crayon images and stamped it repeatedly across the card front. I then took my copic markers and colored the images with the colors of the rainbow. For the sentiment I used a sittched die from MFT to cut it out and then popped it up on the card front.

Make sure you head over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!
