With Love

I finally finished my BORING project for work, so I 
should have more time for fun cardmaking.  Anything
related to paper is automatically delegated to me at work ;(.
This card is for the "wood" challenge at CASology, and 
the "anything goes" challenge at Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge. I used the SU Hardwood background
stamp and inked with the same ink and cardstock colors, so 
hopefully the background is subtle enough to still be CAS.

Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  PTI 2010 Love Tags, Tag Its # 11
Paper:  PTI White & Soft Stone, SU Poppy Parade &  Basic Gray
Ink:  PTI Soft Stone, SU Basic Gray & Pure Poppy
Dies & Punches:  1 3/4" Circle Punch, Spellbinders Scalloped Circles

Celebrate Today

Happy Anniversary CASology ~ Tomorrow is challenge 100!
It is my favorite challenge, as it gives so much freedom to 
interpret the cue word any way you choose ~ no color or sketch
requirements.  I've had a lot of fun with some challenges coming 
up with a different twist on the traditional way of interpretation.
The cue word this week is "Anniversary." I am also playing over 
at Darnell's new challenge ~ "NBUS."  I am loving the new wet
paint sets at PTI, and the sentiment is from the newest set ~ 
Wet Paint III.  I stamped the sentiment twice ~ in basic gray 
and pure poppy, since I wasn't happy with my first stamping 
effort.  Rather than waste cardstock, I tried to salvage it and 
am pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.

Supplies ~
Stamps:  PTI Wet Paint III
Paper:  PTI White, Soft Stone & Pure Poppy
Ink:  PTI Pure Poppy & SU Basic Gray
Dies:  PTI Coffee Cozy Details, Heart Prints, Limitless Layers - Hearts Stitches & Limitless Layers 2 1/4" Hearts
Additional Supplies:  DMC Embroidery Floss # 321

A Reverse Confetti Sketch

paper than I normally do.

Supplies ~

Dies:  Spellbinders Circles & Scalloped Circles

Father's Day Cards

I am the designated card maker at work.  This year
these are the cards that the babies in the neonatal 
intensive care unit I work at will be giving their Dads.
I am submitting them at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday
Challenge for their "Father's Day / Masculine" challenge.  The
colors in two of the cards are the same as this week's 
ColourQ challenge.  The patterned paper I used has
all of the colors for this week's challenge. I made 
multiples of each of these designs, using up some
of my retired Stampin Up paper.

Supplies ~
Paper:  All Stampin Up ~ retired patterned papers, cardstock to match the patterned paper
Dies:  Die-Versions # 1 Dad Sweet Spot & Spellbinders Circle
