SCIC Challenge #65 Yellow Flowers with Bike

I really liked the yellow flowers in the bike basket for this months Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  It definitely said 'spring' to me!  I created my own yellow flowers in a bike basket for my card.  I used the bike from the Moving Forward stamp set and added So Saffron flowers to the basket (they are yellow, even though you can't tell it in the picture!)  The boxed Old Olive DSP reminded me of the basket in the inspiration.  I embellished with Chocolate Chip ribbon (retired :()  and the friends stamp from Tiny Tags.  Thanks for looking!

SCIC Challenge #65 Little Houses


When I saw this months Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge the houses made me think of the Good Neighbors stamp set. So that is what I used!  I used the colors Perfect Plum, Island Indigo, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and Rose Red.  I stamped the houses on a Framelit Label and sponged the edges.  I did a little splatter on the Crumb Cake.  I topped it off with some Delicate Details Lace Tape and a cute button!  Thanks for looking!

Love SCIC Challenge #63

I needed to make a quick Valentines card so I came to the Stampin' Celebration Blog for some inspiration!  I did a replica of the frame in the inspiration.  I have been wanting to use the Glimmer Paper, so this was perfect.  I made the card 3"X3".  It is super simple with a bit of sparkle!

Simple Love SCIC Challenge #62

I made a little love note for this month's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #62.  
The soft colors made me think of something sweet and cute, and I knew I wanted to use the retired Sending Love Notes as my base.  I stamped the Pink Pirouette cardstock with snowflakes from The Snowflake Spot stamp set using Whisper White Craft Ink.  I cut the letters with my Bigshot and outlined them with Pool Party polka dots.  This was a very quick card which would be great for Valentines!  Thanks for looking!

Stampin' Celebration Challenge # 59

 It was time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!

When I first saw the challenge I had no idea what I was going to do.  I eventually went with punching similar flowers out of cardstock and ended up with a very simple but neat card.  The colors I used were Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Basic Black, and Whisper White.  Thanks for looking!

Fall Candle

 I really liked this month's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it- the colors, the smells, the weather, the activities...and we are finally going to have some fall like weather this week so I was excited to make a fall project.  

I really liked the mason jars and candles in the inspiration so I went with that and created a candle holder.  

I stamped leaves from the retired Autumn Leaves stamp set on crinkled up vellum and cut them out.  I like how the crinkled vellum added a leaf-like texture.  The belly band was done using the same technique with the Woodgrain stamp.  I added punched branches and Dahlias to finish it off.  I created a crinkled paper flower for the lid to tie into the inspiration even more!  I filled the jar with crinkled paper confetti and a flameless candle.  This was a fun home decor project just in time for fall!

ColourQ Challenge #150

I really liked working with the fun colors this week from the ColourQ Challenge #150.   I needed to make a Birthday card so these colors were perfect.  

 I made the cake out of card-stock and embellished each layer with a different pattern.  I made the 'happy target' from the round 'Happy Birthday' stamp from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set and just punched out the 'happy circle.'  This was a fun card to make and it would be a fun card to receive!  Thanks for looking!
