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!

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!

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!

This month's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge was all about grey, yellow, and white! Here was the inspiration...

The color combination this week for the ColorQ Challenge #148 said 'flower' to me. I learned how to make the flower on my card at SU! convention this year and love them!
I used the criss-cross card technique using Tangerine Tango and went from there. This card is really cute, I just can't mail it very easily because of the 3D flower, so I will have to hand deliver it to someone special!

This was a fun and easy project to make. I saw the idea from a gift and made my own version to give as a gift! I used the Everyday Enchantment DSP, ribbon, and brads from the 2012 Sale-a-Bration catalog. The glass is filled with dried garbanzo beans, which went well with my color scheme and added a fun texture.

I haven't posted anything or done any challenges for a long time. (Almost a year!) I was looking around and was inspired by the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #56 so I thought I would give it a try! When I saw this I immediately thought of the boat stamp from the "Moving Forward" Stamp Set. I chose the colors Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White for my card.
Hope you enjoyed my card!
I love the Polka Dot Parade DSP, which is shown here in Pumpkin Pie. I tore fabric strips from the Essentials Designer Fabric and twisted them together to create the 'ribbon.'
