Bravo! A CAS Challenge at The Paper Players

Bravo I am sure there is someone in your life that needs a pat on the back and the new stamp set, Bravo, is just the set to do it perfectly. Then, just for fun, I added some really cute hashtags from #SoSocial. I am submitting this card to The Paper Players, which is a “CAS with a monochromatic twist” challenge this week. CAS (clean and simple) cards are always a challenge for me but I really love how this one came out! It was a very quick card to make, especially with those fantastic Word Bubble framelits, but how fun would it be to receive this card?! PP205

Watercolor Wonder Still Comes in Handy

Adventure Awaits

All things Stampin’ Up have been pretty hectic this week, wouldn’t you say? Wow, I sure wish I could have attended convention this week! It looks like there was lots to do and see. The Pals who attended made sure that those of us who couldn’t attend felt included. Mary Fish had a contest called “Home is Where the Heart is” for us to post cards we made this week, and many Pals were so awesome to post photos as they were happening. Almost as good as being there! LOL The Holiday Mini Catalog, which isn’t that mini this year, was unveiled and those who attended were even allowed to purchase items. Lucky!! But that’s OK, the rest of us can order right around the corner, so I am just going to be patient and start my planning. So many wonderful products are coming!

Anyway, back to my project… The Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew challenge was “make a Scrapbook, Displayed Art, This & That Journal, and More, using the provided sketch.” Well, I still had our fantastic trip to Turkey on my mind so I used the sketch to highlight the best part of our trip – the hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia at sunrise. What an incredible experience!

It’s All in the Details

  • Stamp Set: MDS: Adventure Awaits
  • Paper: Watercolor Wonder DSP, Marine Mist, Whisper White
  • Ink: Old Olive, Marine Mist

Zoo Babies Perform the Lullaby

Zoo Babies

When I need to make a special baby card, Zoo Babies always delivers the perfect look. This set is a must-have for any stamper’s collection and won’t be leaving my craft room for a very long time. I made this card for a family friend who had their very first baby so the card had to be “just right.” This card will be submitted to this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. This card came together very quickly and the Lullaby DSP works great with baby cards but is not babyish so it can definitely be used for all types of cards.

It’s All in the Details

  • Stamp Set: Zoo Babies
  • Paper: Lullaby DSP, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White
  • Ink: Baked Brown Sugar
  • SU Tools: Polka-Dot Embossing Folder, 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Banner Framelits
  • Finishing Touch: Pearls Basic Jewels, Whisper White 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon
