t's hard to believe that Valentines Day is not that far away, I mean didn't we just have Christmas? Here is a fun card using the cute little beaver set called Bubs the Beaver by Our Craft Lounge . This card is also Lori Tecler's sketch for this week over at Paper Craft Planet .
This is a fun and easy sketch and I actually followed it pretty close, the thing about sketches is to see the different ideas people do, sometimes you turn them the other direction, sometimes people go way out of the
box sketch, and you can't even recognize it. I am like whatever, as long as you are stamping and having fun and trying new things that is really the main thing. Why don't you try the sketch, head on over to the planet, upload it and make sure to tag it sk011709 and Lori will snag it and add it to the album for everyone to check out.
So here is my card:
Paper: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor Paper, Autumn Vine DSP
Ink: Palette Noir, Bashful Blue, Sage Shadow, Garden Green, Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, Garden Green, Regal Rose, Blush Blossom
Misc: Unused Beer Bottle lid squished with the Big Shot, Aqua Painter, Dew drops, Spica marker (thanks Shannon…mwha!), cuttlebug folder, aqua painter, blender pen, white gel pen
I also got a RAK the other day in the mail from Cori Solorzano, look how cute this card is? I loved this set. (Thank you for sending me the card Cori, you put a big smile on my face when I opened it.)
I loved how she framed the brads with the circle punched out and you can't see in the picture that the table and chairs are all sparkly, and I am pretty sure she said she used the spica pens, and now thanks to my girlfriend Shannon, I have my own.
Be ready to be spica-fied people. It's all bling from here on out…MAMMa will be so proud of me!
So did you watch the football game? I am not much of a sports person, but I did watch the end and I am very happy that the Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl, Jeff and Eric paced around the living room like a couple of nervous nellies. What is kinda funny, is the Arizona Cardinals are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers and that is PA, and my BFF Tracy lives in PA, so too bad we couldn't have them over, cause then our hubby's could pace around together in the living room and Tracy and I could stamp and visit to our hearts content. Ahh..someday, eh Trac?
Well I have one more round of my 10/10/20 classes in the am, (10/10/20 means 10 cards, 10 envelopes for $20.00) and then I can put that all away, and get my mind wrapped around CHA. I leave next Saturday, and I have lots to do to get ready, I am working on some fun new things, I will show you after I get back.
Tomorrow is the first day we can order out of the new Spring Summer Stampin' Up! catalog, I have to behave, and can only get a few things. I will only get items from the back, as that is the accessories, I have lots of stamp sets, but I am excited for the new textured plates, you know how I love my Big Shot, we also have a new circle cutter, and tons of new buttons and things like that. I have a Just Buzzin' By class coming up and I have to figure out all the goodies the girls will be getting when they come. Oh my gosh and there are tons of new Designer papers too!
Have a great Monday, and thanks for stopping in!
