Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #285

I just love this week's  design from Try Stampin' on Tuesday!

It was so fun to work with and gave me a chance to use some of my patterned papers that I love.

The stamps are from Stampin' Up's "By The Tide" set. Ink is Memento's Morocco and
Desert Sand and SU!'s Night of Navy.

Patterned paper is from Graphic 45.Embossing folder is from Darice.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #283



I feel I've deviated quite a bit from the sketch here from Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #283. I wanted something in the shape of a circle and found this set from Neat & Tangled called "Hand Stitched." Having cross-stitched a lot in the past, I really loved this set.

Other items used are:

SU! Blushing Bride Card Stock
Unknown Green Card Stock
SU! Blushing Bride Bakers Twine
SU! Dimensionals
Copics: R21, R22, R24, YG03, YG17, Y35
YR24

Thanks for stopping by!

Fab Friday 93 Challenge



This is one card I would have never come up with without a challenge. I'm so glad I took the challenge over at Fab Friday. Their challenge sketch is this:



My only flourish seemed too big for this, so I went with a stem from "Betsy's Blossom's" by Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from Avery Elle's "Cake & Candles." The dies are called "Layered Treat Tag" and are from Die-namics. I used Bermuda Bay card stock and ink and Papertrey Aqua Mist card stock and ink. Doily is from Stampin' Up! Sequins are from Walmart and the embossing folder is from Darice.

I was really stretched with this card and I loved every minute of it. Thanks Fab Friday for another great challenge!

Retro Rubber Challenge 44



Challenge #44 (RRCB44) over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog was to use Lime Green, Aqua Blue and a Neutral. I don't think that my Cucumber Crush is exactly Lime Green, but it's close. The other color is Temping Turquoise, both from Stampin' Up!

This card is made using a basketweave technique. The basket strips are made using Stampin' Up!'s Paisley Party Wheel, which was featured in the Holiday 2010 catalog. In order to give it more depth, I used Stampin' Up's Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Close To My Heart's C1257 Happy Birthday Set. It's from 2009.

The flowers and brad are from Michaels. Base card stock is Temping Turquoise from Stampin' Up!

Thanks again to the girls over at Retro Rubber for helping me pull out some older stamps. I love wheels, but haven't used them in quite a while.

Try Stampin' on Tuesday: Challenge #282


For this cute card I used Taylored Expressions Big Delivery Stamp Set and Stampin' Up's Kinda Eclectic. The road is just a strip of black paper that I colored with a white gel pen. Markers are Copics and ink is from Memento.

The layout from Try Stampin' on Tuesday is this:



I had to pass on the challenges options to add a holiday theme or beads, as I really need some masculine birthday cards for my stash.

Thanks to everyone over at that website for giving me some great inspiration this morning.
