Some Birthday Cards and Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #28

Wow has my life been busy!!! I have not gotten to post in awhile because of work, family and really because I am just to tired to type in the evenings. I have gotten to play some in my room this week and hopefully will get to play a lot this weekend since I will be off Monday and Tuesday from work. Wohoo!! I hope to get some scrapping done. I need to get some pages done of our puppy and some more pages from our trip this summer. Well anyways here are some birthday cards I have made this week. The first card I have used the sketch challenge from this week and Kristina Werner's Color Challenge. I really like these colors together and the sketch from splitcoast is a very good one. I love the cards I have seen on Splitcoast using it.

Hope everyone has a great evening and thanks for visiting!!

Swap Cards

I join my first swap ever this week. Well I have swaped with the girls in my upline from SU before but never one where you make several cards and send them all to one person. The Swap was from Spitcoast it was on the forum of SU Demo users. It was a WOW 10 + 1 swap. I join two groups so I end up making two sets of eleven cards. You had to us only SU products and have four layers and three embellishments. I was a little low on Christmas looking paper so I had to reverse the pattern paper on the Kiwi and Riding Hood cards. Let me tell you I am a little nervous!!!! Will the Post office get my cards there safely?? Will everyone like my cards?? And many more questions pop into my head. I can’t wait to see everyone’s cards and let me tell you I’m not good at waiting!! I am getting a some Stampin’ Up! Goodies this week so that will have to tide me over until the cards come. Well I hope everyone has a good weekend!! I need to go eat before I fall over faint.

Eastern Blooms

This is another set I got in my last order. When I got the new SU catalog fell in love with pages 8 and 9 so these cards were inspired from those pages. I used some different colors and ribbon but the idea was close. I love distressing paper so I tore on the first card and inked the edges on the next. I also use last weeks sketch challenge.

Set: Eastern Blooms
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango
Tangerine Tango ribbon, filigree brads, Cuttlebug Folder

Eat Drink and Be Scary

I love this set and paper!! It is so easy to work with and make some really cute stuff. I got this set last week (along with a few other of course) and could not wait to play with it. The witch hat is so cute and I love images with word use as part of the background. The Ghostly Greetings paper is adorable also. I love the skulls and bats. I plan to make some treats for my buddies at work and some scrap pages with this set and paper. I will have to order another package of paper on my next order because I will be using this one up fast with the projects I am doing and I also plan to use some in my card class next week.

Supplies I used:

Sets: Baroque Motifs, Eat Drink and Be Scary
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black

Remaining cards for my Mom's gift set

I finished my Mom’s set of cards last week but with my daughters’ basketball games have not had time to post them. I made eight cards total and use the same CTMH set on all for them. I used different sketch challenges from split coast and different blogs. It has been a week and I can not remember where they all came from. I am now working on a Halloween set and some other Halloween projects that I hope to post tomorrow. Autumn’s Middle School games are over for now until she starts playing with the freshmen team in November. She loves playing Basketball but I think she will be glad for a few weeks rest before practice starts again. So now I should have more time to create and post.

Supplies I used:

Sets: CTMH Treasure Life, Say it in Style
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, River Rock
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Pattern Paper: Kurio
Score-Pal, Scallop Circle, Scallop Edge and Circle Punches, SU ribbon

Thanks for visiting and have a good day!!!
