This entire card (and page) was made with October Afternoon's "Duck's in Row" and coordinating bassil papers. The ribbon is SU's Certainly Celery.

It's sunny, it's hot and the locusts are chirping, But I still love snowmen. Instead of Christmas in July it's winter in July (actually rainy). I found this Stampavie "Rachelle Anne Miller" (Snowman) stamp last week and couldn't wait to use it.
So I added it to this weeks Mojo Monday.
I added a little pompom for fun to his hat. I hit the stash draw and pulled out a Chatter Box piece, Blizzard Swirls and Reminisce, Let it Snow. I used SU's Stampin' Write Brilliant Blue marker for the sentiment which is from SU's Cold Play and stamp set. I placed the sentiment into one of SU's Tags for All stamps. I used a Sky Blue AtyouSpica pen for high lights.

I added this card from my resent post for a Mojo Monday post.
I have participated in two Stampavie Challeges this month, everytime I visit their blog the top post is about how they are looking for a new design team member. So with this being said I will use my two past entries to the challenges and the contents of my blog to apply for a DT position.
Wish me luck!!
I loved making this card. It's started with Stampavie's SAV Challenge #08 – In the Garden. Then I combined it with this weeks CPS. I am new to Stampavie stamps and I love them. I don't know if you can tell but as I was outside taking some pics of the card and enjoying how Elodie's bonnet was casting a Shadow on her face, the card then blew away onto the (wet) grass. It now also sports water spots. Which actually blended into the card.

I love how busy this card is like the plant in the photo. I used Papertrey ink's stamp set "My Punny Valentine". The ink's I used are from CTMH Sweet Leaf, Watermelon and Vineyard Berry. SU's Very Vanilla ribbon.
It's suppose to be nice and sunny today and then five days of rain. So I'm playin' outside all day today, hope you are too.

It was my sister-in-laws birthday this past weekend and she loves home made cards. I got the this stamp set from SU "Fifth Avenue Floral" and I love it. I used kraft card stock for the card and ran a piece of velum through the Cuttlebug with SU's textures impressions Manhatten Flower. I did a test with an extra piece of velum and different adhesives so that it would not show through the velum, as you can see, it didn't work. Any advice on setting velum?

I was strolling through the local SBS and came across these beautiful stamps which I have heard about but had never scene. Well, I turned the stamp over and saw the website (www.stapavie.com) and went straight to the blog. They have this challenge, use a stampavie design, emboss, 3 flowers, one ribbon and two buttons. I wasn't sure how to lay the card out, so I this weeks chose Mojo Monday sketch.
I used a blender pen and CTMH ink's to color the stamped image. I also decorated the hat and ribbons with AtYouSpica pens in coordinating colors and tried really hard to get a great picture. The picture doesn't show that off to well.
So I hit the scrap drawer and this is how it turned out. I used Circut templates and SU's Urban West Rub On for the sentiment. The buttons and flowers were hanging out out in the scrap room and I thought I would just add some bling to the flowers.

This card was inspired by Kristina Werner's Finally Friday card. I liked the way she just stamped directly onto the lined paper. The paper is by Luxe Designs "Simple Lined Lime"
I was in the local SBS yesterday and found this little guy by Rachelle Anne Miller from www.stampavie.com and had these colors in mind for Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11. I've been running around all week and didn't think I would have time to do any challenges this week, but I got to combine two. This great sketch is CPS #123.
