All You Need is Love.
That is the theme for this week's challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.
And now I have the song in my head.........  

For my card, I dug up some old dsp I had.  It is by Stampin Up, but it is from years ago and I don't recall the name.  I fussy cut some of the tags and such off of one of the sheets, used another to cut out the heart, and used a third as a background layer under my embossed layer.  The embossed hearts are done with a Cuddlebug folder called 'Cross my Heart'.

The base is Calypso Coral.  Some of the tags and circles are attached with dimensionals.  I sponged around the heart with Calypso Coral ink to add some dimension.

Please join in this week's challenge if you can!!

This week's challenge for Stamp, Ink, Paper is some fun colors.......

I had some fun with these ones, and I am not usually much of a "pink" person.  :)

I used Melon Mambo, Berry Burst, and Calipso Coral inks and the sketchy heart from the wood crate bundle stamps to create a background on the first card.  Then I used my rotary stamp to make the sentiment along with the word "you" cut from a die.

The card base on both is Melon Mambo.  I used a piece of dsp from the woodgrain stack to stamp my favorite chicken on to for the second card.  Used same colors.  Layered it on to a piece of Baked Brown Sugar before adhering it to the card base and tied on some twine.

Please play along if you have some time.
Would love to see your creations!!!

This week's challenge for Stamp, Ink, Paper is a great sketch.
I kept my card pretty simple. The background is three colors of washi tape.
On top of that I glued a circle of twine. The sentiment is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, and is popped up with dimensionals. I finished it off with some little dots of color in the lower corner.

Hope you can find some time to join in the challenge.
Sketches are my favorite!!!  :)

Hello!!!!!!! Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's challenge for 
Stamp, Ink, Paper,
this week, we are enjoying some CAKE!!!!
Make a card with a cake on it.....

So, I started out stamping a wedding cake, and had a totally different idea in mind.
I didn't care for how it was coming together, so I went in a totally different direction......

Ended up with a Birthday card instead!!

I like this fun Picture Perfect Party dsp from the new Saleabration catalog.  Thanks to Ms Andrea Tracy-Tucker for sending me some!!!  She also gifted me with the pretty lime ribbon I used.  :)
The sentiments are from an old SU birthday set, the cake image is from Big Day, I believe.
All were stamped in Bermuda Day.  The dsp layer, sentiments, and image are all adhered with dimensionals.  

Hope you can find some time to join in this week!!  I would love to see what you come up with.

Happy 2018 Everyone!!!
Here's hoping for a great year for each of us!!

The first challenge for Stamp, Ink, Paper for the new year is all about Embossing.....

I need a few winter cards, as I was a bit busy in December, and didn't get to Christmas cards. So this is one of them.....

My plan is to send out some wintery cards to at least the peeps that sent cards to me...... Hoping this isn't too "Christmassy" because of the colors, but I still think it is cute.  :)

My reasons for not getting out Christmas cards are several....... Until last week, I was juggling to jobs, which isn't so bad, unless one is a third shift job.  As of this week, the third shift job is my only one. I think the two jobs made me exhausted, which made me more susceptible to the flu that was going around.  I got so bad that I even went to the doctor, which anyone who knows me, knows that I hate going to the doctor.

I also got married in December.  That was part of the reason I went to the doctor....... Didn't want to be coughing all over Titus as we said "I do".  :)  We got married at a local state park, so outdoors, in 4 degree weather.  Crazy, I know!!  lol
