A Little Washi Tape

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone! It’s time for a new challenge, at Seize the Birthday and this time our “Toppings” option is Washi Tape. But remember, if “Toppings” isn’t your thing, it’s always “Anything Goes” Birthday!

I kept my card very simple this week, and made the washi tape the star.  And once again, I searched through blogland for inspiration for the layout, and found the perfect one with this week’s sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping.

Colour Challenge Time at Sunday Stamps!

 - by OttawaMom

It’s Sunday which means it’s time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps. For the next two weeks we are working with a fun colour combo: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, and Cherry Cobbler.

Our challenge:

My card:

First I must apologize for the horrible photograph of my card. I did the best I could with my husband’s iPhone but it’s just not the same as my camera.  And for some, my camera is not working properly! Need to get that fixed asap!

I will admit that I found this colour combo a bit tough. I think it was the Tempting Turquoise that was throwing me off, so I decided to keep things relatively clean and simple.

I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler, then added the embossed Whisper White Panel.  The main panel was created using the Gorgeous Grunge set and then mounted on a piece of the Park Lane DSP.

I chose to use a sentiment from the Work of Art set and finished things off with a cute little flower in blue.

The inspiration for my layout came form the current sketch at Stampin’ Celebration!

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with! Holly (creator)MarieStephKathyaAngelAlysonLeena and our Guest Designer this month, Tiz Barnes!

And just to keep things fair, please remember that we do have a few rules. You can check them out here.

The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, October 31st, at 6pm (EST), so there’s plenty of time to play along!

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Park Lane DSP

Birthday Hero for STB!

 - by OttawaMom

It’s time for an “Anything Goes” challenge over at Seize the Birthday today! There is no ”Topping”, this time around, so the sky is the limit!!

My card:

P1160106

Since there is “No Topping” for this challenge, I decided to build up my stash of kid birthday cards and play with the Calling All Heroes stamp set. It is such a fun set to use!

I started with a base of Basic Black, then added a panel from the All Abloom paper stack – it’s not just for floral cards, lol!  I fussy cut the Happy Birthday images and propped them, and the Super Hero, up with some dimensionals.

I used last week’s sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday, for the layout of my card, because I thought it would work perfectly for my Super Hero.

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until October 21st, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.
