Color Inspiration #44

I have been wanting to do one of Kristina Werner’s Color Inspiration Challenges and I guess now is as good of a time as ever.  This was a difficult one for me.  For some reason, just using black, grey and white was really hard. Sorry for the poor image.  I had to scan this one to keep the card shut.  The top was trimmed so the white inside saying was revealed. Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill Stamp: 7 gypsies Ribbon: Unknown

This card is a 2-for-1 as I am submitting it to both CPS and to the Caardvarks challenges. The Caardvarks challenge was to use critters. I am loving my new stamp set by Colorbok.

I bake bread maybe twice a month, so he stays pretty dormant most of the time in the fridge. I’m still learning how to wake him up and get him going before I need to bake. It is a learning process you …

Mojo Monday 76

I’m getting these cards in at the last minute. Hopefully, I’ll do better next time and not cut it so close. Here is my version of the Mojo Monday 76 sketch. This has a bit more of a purple cast than it should. Again I used my new MemoryStor paper. I have a bunch of Studio G dollar stamps, but am finding they do not stamp very well. I stamped this and had to go over it with a marker for a smoother finish. I created some dimension with popping up the flower square as well as the flower center. …

CPS105 – yoohoo

This is my entry for this weeks CPS challenge. This is going to be a quick post because it is another one of those “busy” Saturdays and I’m rushing to get things done. I bought a set of paper from Costco by MemoryStor and have been wanting to use it. I’ve never heard of this company before, but I’m pretty impressed with their double sided paper.
