Never Too Early to Send Some Love!

My project for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is kind of a Velentines card, but can be given anytime i suppose! 
The nice thing about sketches is you can take it as inspiration and just go with it!  My sample card is kind of loosely based on the sketch... i kind of had to improvise as i was building it. But it turned out cute, i think. It is pretty in real life because it sparkles and all...and i love sparkly things! 

Be sure to use this weeks sketch, make a project, and head over to Stampin' Royalty and post your project! we would love to see what you do! 

Supplies:

Ink:  Real Red
Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White
Stamps: Seasonal Sayings, Patterned Party
Accesories: Polka Dot Patterned Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, Rhinestones, Simply Scored, Fashionable Hearts Embosslit

Merry & Bright!


Here is another MDS project for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a color challenge!


What i really like about this page is how i used the snowflakes in white against a white background, but with shadows...it gives it an embossed or textured look.  it adds a subtle element without being overpowering! 

Sweets for the Sweet!

My Christmas/Winter themed project for last weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge

Last year, my daughter helped make an adorable gingerbread house, and i of course took pictures of the construction :o)  
Have i mentioned how much i love My Digital Studio?  I do, I do!! That is how i made the fun little page. And oh my goodness, the things you can do with it now!!!! especially the part about being able to color your stamps with different colors! Oh my, how happy it makes me! That is how i did the Sentiment stamp on this page. It was a lot of fun making this page!

Yay! Another Masculine Card!


This weeks Stapin' Royalty Challenge is a Sketch Challenge!
(here's the sketch)


I had to make a bunch of All Occasion cards for someone, and they requested several Fathers Day cards, so that is what made me decide to go with Fathers Day...
I really like this sketch and feel that you can do soooo much with it! 

For this one, with the flags, I punched the DSP with my square punch, then cut them in half diagonally, then down the middle again. I then did the same with Bashful Blue cardstock, but with the next size up of square punch.  then i just glued them on the back of the main panel.  I also did some sponging on the elements to tie it all together.

Supplies:
Cardstock - Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse
Ink - Midnight Muse
Stamps - Open Sea, Delightful Dozen
Accessories -Silver Brads, Square Punches, 2012-14 In Color DSP, Midnight Muse Ribbon

How Could I Resist?

The theme this week at Stampin' Royalty is Emboss Resist! 

So here is my sample card!  
I started with a die cut panel, used clear embossing to create the poinsettia, stamped the pine branches and pinecones, the used my sponges to make the 'halo' of color and also along the edges. I repeated these steps to do the sentiment panel.   For the glimmer paper mat, i used the outside of the actual die itself to trace on the back of the glimmer paper, then cut it out with my craft and rubber scissors. I stamped the sprigs (after stamping off once) and pinecones on the patterned paper background before putting on the main panels.  

Supplies:
Ink: Soft Suede
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Stamps:  Watercolor Winter, More Merry Messages
Accessories: Champagne Glimmer Paper, Clear Embossing Powder, Versamark, Neutrals Patterned Paper

Peek-A-BOO!


The theme for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is Halloween!  
 I thought and thought all week about what i could do for this weeks project, then all of a sudden, a few hours before i needed to have my project done, it suddenly hit me! this was the card that popped into my head, and i made it pretty close to how i envisioned it.  
here are a few of the things i think are in need of explanation:
the ears are made from the hearts punch, and the black and pink are doubled up, but since the hearts punch is now retired, you could probably substitute the wing from the Bird Builder punch as well.
The head is the Extra Large Oval Punch, the paws the small oval, the nose is from the Owl Builder, the eyes with the cupcake builder for the white part and the Owl Builder for the little black dots, but you can probably draw them in too. the pumpkin made with the Extra Large Oval Punch. His little tail is hand cut.  I used the 1 3/8" circle punch for the Jack-o-lantern mouth, then just cut it a little less than half and cut out notches for the teeth. the eyes and nose are just cut from the corners of scraps.  
I drew in his kitty paws, whiskers and mouth with a white Gel Pen, and used the leaf portion of the Bird Builder punch for the leaves. The letters are made with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die, and the exclamation point was cut by hand. 
I think he turned out pretty cute! 

Supplies:
Cardstock - Pumkin Pie, Basic Black, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink
Accessories - 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Bird Builder Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Extra Large Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Hearts Punch (retired),  Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die, White Gel Pen, Silver Glimmer Paper, Polka Dot Parade DSP

Sketch Challenge Christmas Card




As you can see, i kind of took a little creative liberty with the sketch, but it is mostly the same :o)  
That's the beauty of sketches...you can take inspiration from them, but create your own unique work of art! 

After cutting the red panel, i embossed it using the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, then die cut the white panel, then stamped it, colored it, used my Festive Paper Piercing Pack to draw the dots around the edge using my Basic Black Marker.  I stamped and punched the sentiment circle, added a mat, punched the scallop ribbon border, added that and the ribbon to my panel,  then added the image and sentiment, a little glitter glue to make it sparkle, and i was done!  the coloring took the longest but even that wasn't too difficult, as each element was only 1 color each.  

Supplies:
Stamps - Beautiful Season
Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Soft Suede
Accessories - Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, Blender Pens, Labels Collection Framelits, Rasperry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, Circle Punches, Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Glitter Glue, Gold Pen,  Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker,

I've Fallen for Fall!


This is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a Picture Inspiration Challenge! 
This was an extra tough one  for me. But i ended up taking inspiration from the colors and some of the elements (like the tree.)  I inked the stamp in different colors using my sponge daubers, then used a marker to color the trunks of the trees. After stamping, i used my sponge daubers again to add more color to the trees on the paper. I used the masking technique to do the blue sky. After embossing the woodgrain piece and adding some panels, a few brown brads and the sentiment, i was all done! 


Supplies:
Ink - Early Espresso
Cardstock - Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Whisper White
Stamps - Lovely As A Tree, Best Dad Ever
Accessories - Neutrals Brads, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers

A Simple Thank You


This weeks challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a Color Challenge :


I made a simple Thank You card, with just enough of a special touch to make it look extra nice :o)
I stamped the circle images, punched them out, put them on a mat of Whisper White with a Tangerine Tango mat, then used my Stampamajig to stamp the 'thank you's and put rhinestones in between each one. after adding the rhinestones to the flowers in the circle images, i was all done!  Pretty quick to make, less than 10 minutes once i had all the supplies out and ready to go. the nice thing is, it's quick, easy, uses only a few supplies, and you can use almost any color combo for this and it would look lovely! 

Supplies:
Stamps - Just Believe
Ink - Tangerine Tango, Rose Red
Cardstock - Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
Accessories - Rhinestones, Stampamajig, circle punch

C'mon, Christmas!!

Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge!
It's a sketch challenge, which i always find the easiest of all the challenges..Check out the sketch below...

I may have mentioned once or twice before (or a hundred times) of how i love all things Christmas!  I would say that 75% of my stamp collection is all Christmas themed...i won't even mention my collection of patterned paper! (i just so happen to have a patterned paper sickness!) 
This card was easy to put together, but the thing i think needs a little explaining is the embossed portion. I cut a panel using the Labels Collection framelits, but only put it halfway through the Big Shot so it would give this scalloped panel look... then i stamped the images, then ran the whole panel through using the embossing folder. I paper pierced the edge of the piece using the Festive Paper Piercing Pack.  I then stamped and cut out the Poinsettia, then added glitter to the center.  The rest was really easy! 
Be sure to head over to Stampin Royalty to see what the other Goddesses made, and take the challenge while you're at it, and be sure to post your creation!

Here is the sketch:

Supplies:
Stamps - Watercolor Winter, More Merry Messages

Picture This!

Here's this weeks sample for the Picutre Inspiration Challenge at Stampin' Royalty!
It's pretty easy to figure out and actually very easy to put together...
I started out with a Naturals White cardbase and a Sahara Sand panel. I then cut a Naturals White panel and embossed just the bottom portion with my Big Shot/Stripes folder.  I added 2 strips of Naturals white, one on top of the other (it's hard to tell they are actually layered from the picture)
I then cut a strip of Sahara Sand Patterned Paper and made it into a 'banner'.  I cut 2 shapes from the Apothecary Accents Framelits, in Sahara Sand & Naturals white, then stamped the flowers in Sahara Sand, then colored them with a blender pen.  I stamped and punched out the sentiment, and punched the heart of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I sponged the edges of all the elements, added some piercing, then put them all together!  

(here is the inspiration picture!)
 

Supplies:
Stamps - Elements of Style, Petite Pairs
Cardstock - Naturals White, Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler
Ink - Sahara Sand, Certainly Celery, Primrose Petals
Accessories - Paper Piercer, Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Full Heart Punch, Stripes Embossing Folder, Large Oval Punch, Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine, Neutrals Patterned Paper Pack, Blender Pen, Neutrals Buttons

The Open Sea, it Calls to Me!

Here is my sample card for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a color challenge!  Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Pool Party!  When i saw those colors, i had SOOO many ideas!  but i needed to make a card for my dad because his birthday is coming up, and he likes ships, so i thought this would work out nicely!  
Did a lot of sponging, stamping, and crumpling for this one! it has lots of textures!

Blue (but Jolly!) Christmas

The challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week was a Sketch Challenge!  I like those because it makes it a little easier to come up with a card! although there is still challenge in trying to figure out what stamps and paper to use....I seem to have a theme of my own...Birthdays or Christmas!  because those are what i always seem to need the most of!

I used Markers to color the image stamps, and i think the only other part of this card that might need some explaining is the mat behind the main image. I actually traced the outside of the actual die and cut it out by hand. it was pretty easy and only took me less than a minute.  I also used the glitter glue on the button to make it sparkle!

Supplies:
Stamps - No Peeking
Cardstock - Marina Mist, Whisper White
Accessories - Polka DotParade Patterned Paper, Stampin' Write Markers, Silver Glimmer Paper, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits Dies, Rhinestones, Large Oval Punch, Neutrals buttons

Never Too Early for Christmas!

This weeks Challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a Picture Inspiration Challenge, and i have to tell you, i was definitely challenged at first, but once i got that spark of inspiration, it all came together!  In the picture, there is so much going on, the color, the texture, the sparkle and shine....i used all those things in this card!  When i was thinking about the supply list on this one, i thought to myself  "what DIDN'T i use!" haha!   Really this doesn't take much explaining, except that i might note that #1, i embossed the first white panel after i die cut it, #2, for the Silver Glimmer Paper, I used the actual die itself and traced the outline of it on the back of the Silver Glimmer Paper, then cut it out to make a mat (using my Craft and Rubber Scissors so as not to ruin my good scissors!)  and #3, I embossed the ornament in Silver, then I actually cut right along the outside of it, then layered it onto a die cut piece of the same shape for a mat.  Other than that, its all about layering and adding the bling!
If you haven't already seen the rest of the samples made by the Goddesses, you really need to see them! they are all so very talented and their projects seriously wow me every week! 


Supplies:

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, Whisper White
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Pearls, Silver Embossing Powder, White Taffeta Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, Embossing Folder, Silver Glimmer Paper, Brights DSP,

Balloons and Birthdays

Here is my sample for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a Color Challenge! Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, and Raspberry Ripple! I do love these colors together! One of the stamp sets we got with our convention bags this year was the You're Amazing, and decided to use it right away!
  I have recently been having card designs just randomly pop into my head as i am either waking up or falling asleep, and this card design came to me while i was still half asleep about a week ago.  It's not exactly as i pictured (i pictured it with different colors) but it is pretty close! and i like the way it turned out! 
Do you ever have designs come to you in dreams? : )


Supplies:
Stamps - You're Amazing, Affection Collection
Cardstock -Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Naturals White
Ink - Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple
Accessories - Vanilla Brads, In Color Designer Series Paper

Button Up!


Buttons, Buttons everywhere!  
That is the theme of this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge!  

This project was really fun to make!  I started out with an old box thingy that looked like this:
As you can see, it was a little worse for the wear, and needed an update. i had been using it for a pencil box, but we as crafters know, everything around us must be cute-ified!!
So i covered it with DSP, then began to go around the top and bottom with buttons! I wrapped some ribbon, stamped the flower, cut it out, layered it, added the final button,  and was all done! 
take a look around your desk to see what you can cute-ify! I would love to see what you make!

Supplies:
Stamps: Button Buddies
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Brights Buttons, Scallop Circle Punch, Ribbon, Brights Designer Series Paper

Picture Inspiration Card

Here is the sample card from this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a Picture Inspiration!  I thought this picture had so many elements you could get inspiration from...as you can see, i took mine from the blanket and the colors!  I was also able to use some of my brand spankin' new supplies that i got a few days ago!  oh, that always makes me happy!
The flowers were made by stamping the image in Chocolate Chip, then using the masking technique, i sponged Gumball Green over it to kind of give it depth. I then colored in the flowers using my blender pen.  I used white gel pen around the little sentiment mat.  This one was a little more time consuming, but i think it turned out ok. i might tweak a thing or two if i were to ever do it again, but for the most part i am ok with it....

Supplies:
Cardstock - Sahara Sand, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit
Stamps - Elements of Style
Accessories - Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, Small Oval Punch, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, White Gel Pen

Its All About The Texture!

the Challenge over at Stampin' Royalty was a Color challenge! These colors really caught my eye, as there is so much potential to what you can do with it! This card is relatively easy to make, and really doesn't take that long to put together. I used a lot of texture on it with the embossing folders, but you can substitute patterned paper, or even stamp your own background. I stamped the flower from the Button Buddies set 4 times, punched out the largest one using the Scallop Circle Punch, then used my scissors to cut out the others, layering them on top of each other, and lastly, punching out the center of the flower with a circle punch. A button in the center and that would be really cute too!
I stamped the sentiment using Black ink.

Supplies:
Stamps - Bring on the Cake, Button Buddies
Cardstock - Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray
Accessories - Stripes Embossing Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Bird Builder Punch, Baja Breeze pleated ribbon, Scallop Circle Punch,

More Cake, Please!

It happens to the best of us!  Each year there are more candles on the cake! haha!   But at least we can smile about it, right?  This card was made for the Picture Inspiration at Stampin' Royalty...what a FUN PICTURE!!   Lots of color and sweet things! I'm sure you can get some great inspiration yourself, and be sure when you do, make a project and share it with us at Stampin' Royalty!
Oh, and i thought i would mention the yellow panel is embossed with the Stripes folder, but you can't really see it in the photo. But it adds a lot of texture. If i had thought about it before i put the cake on the main panel, i would have used the polka dot embossing folder on it....

Supplies:
Cardstock- Tempting Turquoise,  So Saffron, Whisper White
Stamps- Bring on the Cake, Patterned Party
Accessories- Scallop Edge Punch, Stampin' Write Markers (Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Grey), Brights Buttons, Stripes Embossing Folder

Simple Scrappin'

This Scrapbook page was made for the Stampin' Royalty Clean and Simple Challenge.  It is definitely clean...and simple!!  Since i was actually on the road to my vacation destination when i made this, i kept it very simple. It was all about color, balance, and featuring the photo. I went to my trusty MDS, found a handsome picture of my hubby, used MDS to change it to black and white, then added strips of color to the top and bottom of the page, then some colored 'tape'.  it took me a few minutes to get everything the right size and placement, but it didn't take me long. that is the beauty of Digital scrapping...i was able to do it in the car while my husband was driving, and completed this page in less than 20 minutes!
What's your favorite thing about digital scrapping?

Scrappy Guy Card!

If you are anything like me, you have a very difficult time coming up with cards for guys. and when it was time for the Stampin' Royalty Masculine Card challenge, i cringed a little.  But guys like getting cards too!  and i am pretty sure flowers and ruffles wouldn't be appropriate....
So while sitting staring at my supplies hoping for a moment of brilliance (which never arrived, btw, haha!) I looked at my trusty color coach...i happened to be looking at the old style one, and found some colors that i thought would look pretty good together, then when i pulled out my paper, i happened to pull out some scrap strips and started layering them. I was kind of going for a 'blocky' look, but it transformed into this! i knew it needed some texture, so i put the Garden Green in my Lattice Texture folder.  This idea can be used for anything, including scrapbook pages or as a background.  I had to kind of play with the positions of the strips so that it looked balanced, but was fairly pleased with the result. And oh, what a wonderful way to use those scraps!!  This card looks WAY better in person than it does in the picture.  Oh, and as a side note, i added some punched circles and some silver brads to add another element.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Garden Green, More Mustard, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories:  Lattice Embossing Folder, Silver Brads, Owl and Cupcake punches

Hey, Stranger!

I know, it seems like i have been a stranger lately!  I haven't posted a whole lot, and there are many reasons for this, but now i am back, and my mojo, which had been missing, has returned home! so i will be posting some projects that i had made the last few weeks for Stampin' Royalty and hadn't had a chance to blog. 

One of the reasons i was not posting was because i had been working on a scrapbook that had a time limit, and i had been running behind in finishing.
Here are just a couple choice pics of a few of the pages and some elements. Every element in the book was handmade by me because i couldn't find exactly what i had been looking for.

Celebrating Color!

Here is this weeks card for Stampin' Royalty's Color Challenge!    I took apparent inspiration from this fantabulous card by Torico  which i LOVE and did not do it justice in the least, but this was my interpretation of it!  It actually didn't photograph very well, and looks better in person, very fun and cheerful! 
Everything on it is pretty self explanatory except i think maybe i should note that i drew the black lines with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker using a ruler, and also went over the letters of  'Celebrate' with Crystal Effects.

Supplies:
Cardstock - Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze
Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes, Trendy Trees,
Ink - StazOn, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride
Accessories - Versamark, Rhinestones, assorted Stampin' Write Markers

Punched Out!

Here is this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge sample card using punches!  It's a 4x4 card, using a very simplistic style.  My goal with this card was to make a statement with the colors.  This was very easy to put together and could be done in about 10 minutes once you have all your supplies ready!  besides the cutting of the cardbase, there is no other special cutting!  You can actually use lots of different sentiments for this card...Thinking of You, Thank You, Happy Birthday, Just a Note....very versatile!  Oh, and you can use scraps in the punches!!
The one thing i did that i might need to point out is I sponged the edges of the vase and doily, and used a straight mask so i could sponge the 'table' part.

Supplies:

Cardstock -Naturals White, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Ink - Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Going Grey
Stamps -Sincere Salutations
Accessories - Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Boho Blossoms, Bird Punch, Cupcake Punch
