Some cards I've been working on

I've been trying to work out of my comfort zone a little.  What I did with these is worked with colors I don't normally use.  Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie aren't colors I normally work with.  So I decided to use them.  I believe I got this color combo from the color coach, but it's been a while since I made these, so I could be mistaken. I used half of an 8.5 x 11 sheet of whisper white and randomly stamped images from the Level 2 Hostess Set.

 I cased this one from one of the catalogs.  I think it was the Idea book, but can't remember for sure.  I'll let ya know as soon as I find it.

Party Hearty!

debbies pics 197 I made this card before the new catalog came out. I used my markers….some of them were a little used…I’ve let my daughter use them a couple of times….especially the ones I don’t use very often.  Since it’s been a while since I created this card I can’t remember for sure what colors they are. So hopefully they’re the ones I think it is.

Stamps: Party Hearty! (i’ll update if that’s not the correct name)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Real Red, Certainly Celery, and Chocolate Chip markers
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie and White
Accessories: Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon (reverse side), scallop edge punch, modern label punch, and window tag punch.

Thought I'd make a card using the Hello Again (I believe that's the correct name for it) set.  It's so cute.  I was gonna' use the matching wheel but I guess I forgot.  Oh well just means I'll  have to make another card.  For some reason this is one of my new favorite color combinations... Melon mambo, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.  I'm usually not a Bright color lover, but love the new brights collection in the catalog. 

Back to the card, I knew what I wanted to do with this card before I even started, but ended up having to do it in a two day sitting due to family duties. :)  We all know how that goes.  I made the Main Image first and then finished the rest of the card on the next day.

Stampin’ Supplies:
Stamps: Hello Again
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Old Olive
Paper: Same as Ink
Accessories: Old Olive wide grosgrain, corner rounder, dimensionals

Hope you like it. Hopefully soon I’ll have more to post. Thanks for stopping by.

Haven't posted for a computer got a needed to wait to get that fixed and everything.   It's working now, but anything i've created is either using the newly retired stuff or some of my really old stuff (not recently retired).   Don't have too much new stuff yet, so hopefully I'll be placing an order soon.  Trying to come up with open house ideas without any new product is difficult.  So hopefully I'll have something new to post here in a couple days.

Some more Little Creations....

I was going through my retired Scraps of DSP.  I found some from the flower for you DSP packet.  So I thought I would use it to make a 3x3 card.  This is what I came up with.  Really simple but cute. 

I also was going through some of my old Simply Scrappin Kits and decided to make a ATC using some of the scraps and stickers from the kits.  I can't remember the name of the kit, but here's the project....

Using up some of my old stash....lots more to go.

For some reason I've been doing a lot of little stampin projects.  Been making ATC's, 3x3, tags .... little things like that.  I haven't had a lot of time at once to sit down and stamp so that's what i come up with.   I've also been using some of my old stuff/retired stuff.  It actually feels good to be using it. I'd buy all this paper and then it was too awesome to there it would sit and never get used.  Now I have too much stuff and need to start making room for new stuff.  Running out of storage space.  Here are some of the one's I've done.

 I was going through some of my older stuff and found some rub-ons that I thought would look cute on something... Didn't know what I was going to do with them at first but this is what I came up with.  Didn't quite turn out how I had planned but it works.  I used Close to Cocoa, So Saffron, Bordering Blue and Almost Amethyst.

Got a couple more, but I'll share those tomorrow.  Gonna' go roast some hot dogs with the family.  Thanks for stopping by.

I needed to make a Thank you card and since I needed to get it done fast I thought I'd CASE one out of an older mini Catalog. I had the Ocassions Mini Catalog (April 1- June 30th, 2009) sitting on my desk.   I opened to pg. 3 and used that as inspiration.  Not sure exactly what colors they used in their card, but I used Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla. Instead of using the stamp set Soft Summer I used Asian Artistry.  I used my Stampin' Pastels and blender pen to color in the image.  I really like this card...loved how simple it was to create.  I ended up making 3 of them...I knew I wouldn't give the card away if I didn't make any more.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes and Asian Artistry
Ink: Basic Gray
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Very Vanilla 1/4" grosgrain Ribbon, blender Pens and Stampin Pastels.
