MOJO289 - Happy Birthday Vicki Burdick

I love this MOJO289 sketch designed by Julie Tilman and thought to use it for creating a birthday card for Vicki Burdick's Birthday! Lesley over at Always Playing with Paper has organized a linky party on her blog so you can add your birthday wish as a surprise for Vicki.

Although I've haven't meet Vicki in person, I admire her artwork and enjoy seeing her share her creativity. Her blog if you don't already know is called: It's a Stamp Thing. I'm sure you will love it. Best wishes go out to you, Vicki and hope you enjoy your birthday week and all year long.

Happy Birthday Vicki!
I used the stamp set: Daydream Medallions along with the matching framelits Floral Frames to create the center focal point but later added the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits in black carstock behind it to add a scalloped look for the base.

Added a 1 1/4" circle using basic grey and a 1" circle in whisper white. The sentiment comes from the set: Itty Bitty banner and cut with the matching framelits. Colors used were Real Red and Black ink. Almost forgot, to get the stripe banner, I used the set Hearts a Flutter and used the Basic Grey ink directly on the basic grey cardstock.

Here is a closer look at the embossing folder used which is one of my favorites called: Finial Press. Now that I'm posting, I realized it's retired already. Basic Pearls were added (you can color the pearls with a black sharpie to get this look.

DSP for this card is: Polka Dot Parade, Neutrals Paper Stack. Cardstock, Real Red Core'dination from the Spring Catalog, Basic Grey, Black, and Whisper White. Stampin Dimensionals were used as well. Hope Vicki continues to enjoy her birthday all year round.

PPA157 - Open Sea with Nautical Expedition

As I said before, I'm trying to get back to my regular posting and challenges, so I hope you enjoy. This time around it's the Pals Paper Arts  sketch challenge created by the talented Margaret Moody, PPA157 and I wanted to give it a try. 

If you would like to see all the wonderful inspirations, click here to go directly to the challenge. Again, the most important thing is to have fun with any challenge. Here is mine below.

This time I wanted to create a masculine card since I realized I don't have hardly any or should I say none. Also, I've had this DSP, Nautical Expedition for the longest time and realized I never used it, so I was happy to get it out and work with it. I love the colors.

This set, Open Sea is fantastic for masculine cards and so happy to see it wasn't retired. Colors were Soft Suede cardstock and ink. Added some paper piercing to bring it more attention and added my favorite Stampin Dimenstionals to pop it up.

Love this little anchor that came in the set. Here, I fuzzy cut it and mounted it with Stampin Dimensionals. Went more crazy and kept paper piercing away as you can see.

The sentiment came from the stamp set: Elements of Style, which I'm sad to see it being retired, but on the other hand I'm sure we will see some terrific stamp sets come our way in the upcoming catalog.

When I was done, I realized this card can be done in no time at all if one was making several at a time. Hope you enjoy!! Hopefully, I'll have more time and can post my other card up within the next couple of days. Until than!!

MOJO288 & The Paper Players#141 with Best of Butterflies

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO288 although today is Sunday, last day to link up. This week's sketch designed by Sarah Bigelow. You can click here to view the wonderful cards already made with this sketch.

Also, trying to get back to playing more challenges as before, now that my niece has been born and my sister is now doing better. So I went over to check out what they had going on at The Paper Players and love the beautiful color challenge this week, so wanted to see if I could do a combo. To join over at The Paper Players, click here  to see the beautiful inspiration the design team has come up with. 

Most importantly, have fun with the sketch and color combo challenge. I was glad myself to work on a card and with this cute sketch. Here is mine below: 

Isn't this butterfly so cute? It's from the stamp set: Best of Butterflies that came out during April from the Best of 25 year stamp set collection. Did you know, if you collect 6 of The Stampin Up - Best of 25 year stamp sets, you will qualify to order 1 FREE stamp set of your choice valued up to $14.95. (Proof of Purchase is necessary to claim the free set).

Here I used the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits using Island Indigo cardstock and than went on to punch out a 1 3/4" circle. Than thought it needed something more, so added some paper piercing using the Essential Paper-Piercing Pack

Lastly, used the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out this cute butterfly and mounted using Stampin Dimensionals. The sentiment comes from the set: Petite Pairs. Hope you enjoy and have fun creating.

Best of Butterflies - available only in clear mount #133345

Delicate Doilies Sizzlits - item #126999 (I used the one on the left hand side)
