EASY AND DEMONSTRATABLE CARD CHALLENGE FROM LNS

Brads and Eyelets are this week's requirement for the ED #11 Challenge over at Late Night Stampers.  Here's what I came up with"

LNS ED BRAD CHALLENGE

This simple little card was made using the Blissful Bride Stamp Set from the Summer Mini Catalogue.  This stamp set has such simplicity in it's clean open line design.  Makes it perfect for adding accents and coloring.  I used Bermuda Bay, soon to be retired, Whisper White and So Saffron for my choice of colors.  Rhinestone brads add just the right amount of glitz for this wedding card.

LATE NIGHT STAMPERS BOY CHALLENGE

This week's challenge at Late Night Stampers is to create a "Boy Card".  Here's a simple one that I came up with:

LNS FOR THE BOYS

This was made with a color palette of retiring colors, Brilliant Blue and Apricot Appeal.  It is always a challenge for my mind to get around the world of little boys as I grew up with one sisiter only and had 2 daughters and have 1 grand- daughter.  The closest I've come to little boys was my nephew who loved anything to do with machinery and equipment when he was little.  So I decided to go with the rocket ship!  Maybe just be cause I'm a bit of space cadet myself!  LOL

MONDAY'S MARVELOUS PROJECT - FATHER'S DAY CARD SET

Presently I'm involved as a designer at the Ustamp Big Shot Online Class.  If you love 3-D items and lots of variety in styles you need to sign up for this terrific and fun online class.  Every project has used the Big Shot.  So dust yours off and join in the fun.  For registration information go to:

The fun of online classes is that when a project is posted you then have the opportunity to re-create that project using the products you have on hand.  This project that I made was originally designed by Jen Picard from Canada.  You can visit her blog at:

http://www.anewinkonlife.typepad.com/

Her original design was created with the Simply Scrappin' Kit Happy B-Day.  I changed it up and did it with the Simply Scrappin' Kit Tailor Made, which is perfect for masculine cards.  Here's the project with 8 matching cards:

FRIDAY'S FABULOUS STAMP SET

<

One of the things I love the most about the Stampin' Up! products is how well they coordinate together.  The Itty Bitty Bits Stamp Set works perfectly with the Itty Bitty Shape Punches and the Bitty Buttons.  Here are all three of these wonderful products:

120060L
Itty Bitty Bits Stamp Set

118761L
Bitty Buttons

118309L 
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack

Can you imagine the possibilities with these products working together?  No end in sight!

Here's a sweet baby card that I came up with using these great products altogether with the Pawsitively Prints Designer Paper . 

ITTY BITTY CARD 

This is the perfect card for that new arrival or a baby shower.  The nice thing is that the color paletter of Ballet Blue, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White lend the design to work for both a girl or a boy.  The button images were stamped with classic ink, punched out and then the matching clear button was adhered over the top with a small drop of Crystal Effects which of course dries perfectly clear.
 I used the Scallop Trim border punch on the Pink Polka Dot paper and the matching corner punch on the striped designer paper .  The ribbon is the Whisper White Satin ribbon.  The "Little Angel" greeting is from the stamp set of the same name.

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope you'll try this card and have some Itty Bitty fun!

R & R CHALLENGE

<

For the easy and demonstratable card on Late Night Stampers this week we have to come up with projects that have elements that begin with "R" on them.  I decided to choose Rub Ons and Rick Rack as my criteria and have made 2 different cards using them.  Here's the first card I made:

ED R & R

This was a very simple 5 minute or less card.  I used papers from the Sweet Pea paper pad and I used Pumpkin Pie Card Stock.  For Embellishments I used the Pumpkin Pie Rick Rack ribbon which I recently purchased from the Clearance Rack and Chocolate Chip buttons from the Latte collection.

For the second card I went with a completely different color palette of Pretty in Pink, and Eggplant Envy with White rub ons. 

ED 10 RUB-ONS AND RICK RACK

Again the houndstooth paper is from the Sweet Pea Collection and I also added some Rhinestones, with the Rub Ons and Rick Rack!  3 R's is better than 2!  LOL  This was such a simple card.  The little flowers on the bottom of the big flower were colored with a Pink souffle pen which give it an embossed look.  Another 3-4 minute card.  It's my favorite of the two.  What's yours???  Leave a comment and let me know!

Hope you have an R & R day and play along at Late Night Stampers!

LATE NIGHT STAMPERS CHALLENGE - HOME DECOR

<

The weekly challenge on Late Night Stampers this week is to create a project for home decor.  I decided to do a door knob hanger for my bathroom.  Here's what I came up with:

LNS HOME DECOR CHALLENGE

The door knob hanger is made of pressed board.  I covered both sides of the hanger with the striped designer paper from the Sweet Pea Paper Pad.  I then stamped the images of the flowers and vines on Very Vanilla Card stock.  I chose ink colors of Bliss Blue, So Saffron and Mellow Moss.  I then sponged the whole image with Soft Suede and also sponged all the outside edges of the striped paper.The flowers I popped up were also sponged with Soft Suede ink, so that the whole project has a vintage look to it.   Embellishments included Vanilla Satin ribbon and Mellow Moss buttons.

EASY DEMONSTRATABLE CARD FOR LNS

<

The theme for Wednesday's ED card this week at Late Night Stampers is to create a card that using sponging.  I created a scene with sponging and created a bird by sponging it and then punching it out.  Did you know you can create your own stencils for sponging by using your punches?  It's easy and fast and works just fine.

Sponged Bird Scene ED Card

First I sponged the card using Bliss Blue, and a little Pretty in Pink.  The variation in the blue is just how much intensity of ink I used.  The ground was sponged using Mellow Moss.  The bird was sponged with Bliss Blue and Ballet Blue and then sponged around the outline of the bird with the Ballet Blue.  The leaves and branches were just punched out of Chocolate Chip card stock.  I stamped the greeting with Chocolate Chip ink.  The entire scene was created on a piece of Naturals White card stock.

I used a Chocolate Chip and a Pretty in Pink mat and popped it on to the Ballet Blue card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I tied the Rose grosgrain ribbon in a  bow on the left hand side of the card to pink up the pink accents in the sky.  This was an easy card to do and probably only took me 5 minutes.
