Meljen's Designs - Pink and Red color challenge

It's been a crazy couple of weeks and with this cold weather I feel like curling up and hibernating. Or eating some chocolate. Or both....

To help break myself out of the winter blues, I decided to make a funny card which I can use to cheer up a friend too. I followed the Meljen's Designs challenge for the week which is a color challenge of pink and red. I also used one of the newly released Meljen's Designs images and broke in to some DP that I have been hoarding. I love this pretty, glittery paper from Stampin' Up. I guess it doesn't make sense to buy it and not use it. Right? Right? (I need some positive re-inforcement here.)

All right, I know you are saying "get on with it already".... So here is my sassy card.




Ready to see the inside? Wait for it.....




Okay, what do you think? Did you at least crack a smile? If so, mission accomplished.
Here is a peek at the entire new release. Think of all the cute Valentine's day cards you could make with these.

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to join the Meljen's Designs Pink & Red color challenge. We want to see what you can create with this color combo. Remember you don't have to use a Meljen's image, although we love it if you do.

Supplies:
  • Images: Little Brassiere from Meljens Designs (on Whimsy Stamps)
  • Papers & CS: PaperTrey white CS, Georgia Pacific CS, Stampin' Up Real Red CS & Sending Love DP
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers
  • Embellishments: Paper Studio pearls, Studio G red glitter glue, misc. ribbon
  • Other: Computer generated sentiment

Love it and yes I was giggling! You are right, you should use and share your paper, you did great with it, love all the glitter. The card is so much fun and to sit there and cut it out, wow, you have patience. Stay warm.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
