Celebrating My New Toys!!

Christmas came early for me yesterday. The big brown truck delivered a box full of new Stampin’ Up! stuff to me and it was so much fun to pull everything out and see all the fabulous new stuff.  It’s so good to finally add some new stamp sets, paper etc., to my growing collection.

And since I haven’t posted in a while and really wanted to create something with my new toys, I decided to combine two challenges with this new card, the sketch from Mojo Monday and the colour combo from Sunday Stamps.

 My card: 

I love all of the new products I used on this card from the new ribbon to the new embossing folder. But I especially love the new In-Color Dahlia Adornments. My daughter feels the same way and I may just have to hide them so they don’t accidentally/on purpose go missing!

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock/DSP: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals

Ink: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Basic Gray

Stamp Set: Embellished Events

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon, In-Color Dahlias, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Mojo Mashup

Another day, another card to share with you.  This time I combined two different challenges into one card – the colour challenge from the Friday Mashup and the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday.

The Friday Mashup Challenge:

So here is the “Mashup” Challenge :
  1. Make a project that’s “Patriotic or for Remembrance”.
  2. Or Make a project with the colors ” Whisper White, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade & Daffodil Delight.”
  3. Or “Mash it Up” and create a “Remembrance or Patriotic project using the colors above.”
  4. Donate your card to a Wounded Solider or that Special Service Member in your Life!

Mojo Monday Challenge: 

My card: 

While Americans will be celebrating Memorial Day next weekend, those of us in Canada are celebrating Victoria Day this weekend. That being said, I have a huge respect for all men and women in uniform and have “Mashed” it up in honour of them. I don’t really have any patriotic stamp sets but I did my best. And for once I actually had all of the colours for the colour portion of the challenge!

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock / DSP: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Attic Boutique DSP

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade

Stamp Sets: Sprinkled Expressions, Outlined Occasions, Pennant Parade

Tools & Embellishments: Whisper White Satin Ribbon, glue dot, circle cutter (non SU)

 

A Little Mojo

It’s Friday, finally, and the start of a busy weekend around here.  So before things get crazy around here, I want to share with you, my entry for the Mojo Monday challenge.

This week’s challenge:

My card: 

I’ll be honest, I struggled with this sketch and almost threw in the towel and gave up for the week.  But that’s why it’s called a challenge!  I set it aside for a day, came back to it and now I think I’m pretty happy with what I was able to come up with.

Thanks for taking a look!
