Loonie Stampers Challenge #89

Well hello there! I am SO glad it is Friday, let the weekend of working til 4 am and sleeping in late be upon me! Oddly enough I love it!

So this week's Challenge was SUPER fun to do because Dee picked flowers, not from the garden but for our challenge. We had to use flowers in any form: embellishments, pattern paper or stamps. It just so happens that my Package from papertrey finally arrived and i had the new Beautiful blooms and dies to play with!

I also received my Stampin Up Club Purchase this week, so I embossed polka dots over my Gable Green paper. Then I layered it with a Hawaiian Shores (my new fav Color) accent piece embossed with argyle and matted on Aqua mist. As for my flower, I cut white card stock and stamped my floral image using my new Orange Zest Pigment and let me just say: I LOVE the PTI pigments WAY better then their original PM ink pads. So I think I will be replacing all my colors eventually. The next layer I cut from Vintage Cream Felt (also LOVE this product) and stamped my Hawaiian shores flower onto it, plus a few little buttons to finish it off.

I have to say I am pleased with the words on here because I see the style everywhere and claim to myself that I could never to it that way because my obsessive need for things to be straight and proper would not allow me. I think I found a happy medium here.

Please go visits the crazy ladies and Check out their schtuff!!!

Loonie Stampers Challenge #88

OK! Seriously? A favorite...I couldn't pick just ONE, So I cased one card from EACH of our Loonies. What can I say I MADE the time even though I technically shouldn't have with all the work I still have to do. Oh well, Here goes!

This first one was a CASE from Maria. I LOVED the simplicity of this card so I just changed the colors and the sentiment.

This lovely card was made a wee bit differently then a SUPER cute car Char had on the COVER of Card Creations - Start to Finish.

Dee did these super adorable little minis and I kind of duplicated them and changed it up a "little" << pun intended.

Wendy did this little ditty for a There She Goes Sketch and I LOVES it. Isn't that ducky so cute?!

Last, but certainly not least, Regan Did a card a while back and I was SO JEALOUS of her wonderful coloring. So I figured I would give my copics a try again. After dusting them off, I think it turned out ok. I need them girls to teach me.....

...and now I present to you the Loonie Girls. Go Stalk them a little. Don't forget if you wanna play along Link it up in the comments. Thank you to all of you out that do play along. We so love going to see your creations!!!

Flower Shop: Blank Series 2

Hello there!
Thanks for stopping in again. Today I am sharing the second set of blank cards I made for the flower shop order. I like the possibilities of this card especially since I kept one. I usually make an extra of each card I make for them so that I am completely the order and replenishing my own supply. Cheating is good, yes?

Inspired, tropically speaking!

Is tropically even a word? Well if not, it is now.
A few weeks back i had a post about a tropical wedding invite and I was so inspired
by the colors that I made this card in the similar style.

There is something so wonderful about white on white!

Here is the inside...Looking at it now I think if I were to make it again I would leave out the pink layer of cardstock....I feel like it is too much, too bold on the inside.

Thanks for stopping in today! Adious!

Flower Shop: Blank Series 1

I did another order for the flower shop last month and have still not posted all of them. The next couple days I will post the blank cards I did. I find then the hardest to do but struggled through it with pleasant results.....Thanks for stopping in and enjoy day 1.

I particularly like the mix of textures on this card and I DO plan to make it again similar...maybe different colors.

Loonie Stampers Challenge #87

Welcome to another exciting Loonie Stampers Challenge!
This week was Char's selections and I LOVE this combo.

I decided to let the colors speak for themselves this week and kept it simple, you know K.I.S.S. Anyway, I have been tired lately of the same old standard card size so i cut and scored this one to be a 4.5 square. I layered my flowers and stamped my image and then did a horrible job marking out faux stitch lines...Next time I try something like this I may just sew it for real. But I made this card in the evening (Thursday) and used the light of my charged laptop as out power was out. We had a BLIZZARD?! Yeah, I know what you are thinking and I agree, WTH???

Anywho the powere is back (for now) and I may need to redo the picture tomorrow. Lets go check out the ladies ......

Loonie Stampers Challenge #86

Welcome to the Loonie Stampers Challenge, this week is my turn to pick. I decided to go outside the box on this one...for me it is and then I struggled with it...LOL I tried a few times to do a card with these colors.

Anyway, I did this first card for my little nephew (he is not really my nephew but his mommy and I have been friends for 27 out 30 Years AND i was there when he was born) He just turned 2 years old and what a sweetie he is.

The funny thing is, I asked my Oldest Daughter McKayla to print her and her sisters names in the card and she decided to put it on the front instead, so I am glad I snapped the picture earlier.

This is the second card I did a few days later...much better. I think this one showcases the colors better. The fat green ribbon is even recycled. My friend (the mommy of my little not really nephew) wrapped this ribbon around my presents for my 30th Birthday. I knew I would use it some day, even if 6 months later. lol

Lets go see what the crazy, I mean Loonie Ladies did this week.....
