Hello for Paper Players #317

Here is a sweet little card Karen whipped up for the challenge over at Paper Players this week.  The theme is leaves clean & simple.  Here is the sketch:








The base of her card is a die from Papertrey Ink called Noted-Scalloped Shapes.  The frame is a stitched square from Lawn Fawn, and the leaves are thinlets from Stampin’ Up’s Botanical Gardens (retired).  A simple scripted “hello” from Technique Tuesday’s Hello Chickadee finishes her card simply.

The inside of her card is equally simple with a stitched circle from the Papertrey set mentioned above and a few maple leaves from an EK punch.  Simple and clean for a fun challenge.

Thanks for visiting and be sure to check out more great ideas over at the Paper Players site.

Joy and Peace for Mojo Monday #470

Thanks for stopping in this week.  We have some fun cards to share, so let’s get started.  First, this is the design sketch we used:

We begin with Karen’s card  created for the holidays.  With a mix of paper from her scrap box and some simple stitched shapes from Papertrey Ink’s Noted-Scalloped Shapes her card begins to come together.  A little button embelishment from Jesse James & Co. Christmas Button Assortment and a bit of striped washi tape on her envelope finishes her card off just right.

My card is next also with a holiday theme.  My focal point is another Penny Black stamp that is ever so cute, don’t you think?  It’s called A Thorny Affair and I gifted it to my stamping friend Robyn with the understanding that I could stamp a few images for my own collection.  (Friends are allowed to do that!)   I used an aqua painter and some Stampin’ Up ink to color the image–fast, fun, and ever so easy.

To end our collection this week is Robyn’s Halloween card.  Very dark and spooky I think.  By using Stampin’ Up’s Halloween Night DSP, a bit of a spider doilie (retired Stampin’ Up), and Li’l Inker’s Spooky die, she has created a fun card sure to give a scare to the receipient.

We hope you enjoyed perusing through our collection this week and will check out more of this week’s offerings at the Mojo Monday site.  Please leave a comment if you would by scrolling way down to the bottom of the page.  It’s a bit of a distance, but we would appreciate the effort.

It’s a Good Day for Mojo Monday #468

Welcome to our blog this week for our interpretations of the design sketch from Mojo Monday.  Here is the sketch:

This is Robyn’s great interpretation of the sketch.  I like the window as the center square.  It’s very clever.   Along with American Craft and Craft Smith papers in the background the Stampin Up retired Happy Home & Sprinkles of Life make this card so much fun.

This is my interpretation with a Thanksgiving theme.  It’s another Stampingbella stamp as my card’s focus colored with Prisma Color pencils.  Accompanied with checked paper from Papertrey Ink and Stampin’ Up’s plaid I like how this card came together.  There is also a bit of 1/8″ dotted & checked ribbon as accent which is from May Arts.  If you look closely at  my envelope you will see a sweet set of pumpkins from Verve Stamps for a bit of envelope decoration.

Doesn’t this card from Karen just make you smile?  Her sweet Frankenstein is not that scary and is loads of fun.  She cleverly incorporates the design’s components into the body of the monster, and used fun googly eyes to complete the look.  Combining circle and oval punches along with Stampin’ Up’s Festive embossing folder brings her monster together.

We hope you enjoyed your visit and will consider leaving a comment.  Stop in at the Mojo site for more great ideas.

Just a Peek

How about a quick look at three cards we will be sending to a friend for a Holiday card exchange?  We’re participating in our blogging friend Susan Itell’s exchange.  She has a great blog at Simple Stampin‘ that would be worthwhile to checkout when you have time.  We each worked on our own instead of our usual FaceTime collaboration and here are the results:

This is Robyn’s card she will be sending with both the inside and outside view.  You also get a peek at her envelope with sweet washi tape trim. Some lucky person will be excited to receive her card I’m sure.

Karen’s card is a sweet and simple idea she adapted from Pinterest.  A clever graphic snowman that is sure to bring a smile to its receipient.  The inside of her card is just as sweet as the outside, don’t you think?



I’m closing  this post with two views of my card too.  We all tried to use Stampin’ Up products as Susan is a Stampin’ Up demonstrator and try to support her in her business.  Most of our products are current items, but we may have included a few retired things.
Thanks for visiting, and leave us a comment if you can.  We hope to see you again!
