Stampin' Royalty Challenge #4

I was inspired today by a card given to me by Angelica who made a flower pot and I thought wouldn't that look great beside the little house.   This Good Neighbor paper is in the Sale-a-bration catalogue and you can get it  for free when you order $65 from the Stampin' Up cataglogue. can get these cute little house stamps that are on the inside of this card
from the Sale-a-bration catalogue as well.   They really are a cute little set of stamps!    I used Really Rust cardstock for the main card and the flower pot.  Soft Suede really goes well with the Pumpkin Pie orange in the house and the scalloped edge.  I made the big daisy with the scalloped circle punch and just cut in about half an inch to make it look like a daisy.   I did the same with the boho blossom So Saffron flowers.  The Pumpkin Pie button just added some zip.   The thank you is stamped with Baja Breeze.   This would make a nice housewarming card but I didn't have any sentiments for that.....sigh.....there is always something more to be ordered (grin).

Cottage Wall DSP

At first, I didn't really like the new in colors
that Stampin' Up introduced last July, but
now I really love them and especially this Cottage
Wall DSP.    It goes so well with Old Olive.

Old In Colors with New Stamps

This was my favorite of the old in colors.
I love the courdoroy buttons.  I also love
the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch.  These
new punches are easy to store and very easy
to use.   One of my favorite things about
Stampin' Up is that the stamps match the
punches and I used the new With All My Heart
stamp set on the flower.

One Layer Challenge

I am really enjoying participating in these challenges.
Thank you all for your hard work and time in putting
them together, and then commenting on them all.  I am
finding your challenges inspiring and challenging.  I used
the masking technique for this card. You need to stamp
most of these images on a post-it note and then cut them
out.   I placed the F friends mask on top of where I stamped
it and then stamped the next hearts so that they would
overlap, and continued this technique across the card.
Stamp Sets: I (Heart) Hearts, Vintage Vogue
Teeny Tiny Wishes
Colors:  Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum
and Pale Plum

So Many Birthdays!

Alot of very nice people are having birthdays  (grin) and I am
trying to keep up and make cards.  I still have alot of
Pink Pirouette from last year that I am trying to use up so
that is the base of this card.  The chocolate chip and rose
DSP are also from last year, as well as the ribbon.  But I
have lots of it and may build a class around this card for
my friends.

Birthday Challenge

I did try this card in pink and I really like it.   The stamp
set is Vintage Vogue, and the colors are Rose Red and
Pixie Pink.    I just used the sizzlit die Little Leaves from
Stampin' Up to put behind the flowers!

This Card might look a little familiar.......

I hope it's okay to case the new catalogue - this might
look a little similar to the card on the front only I used
some different colors and stamps.   I used the Vintage Vogue
stamp set from the new mini catalogue and all the new
in colors for stamping.     I used the 1 3/8 circle punch
but you can only do one layer at a time.

My oh My - Sarah.....H E L P!

                                                   I thought before I posted this card that I
                                                   would change my blog....and....I  did it
                                                   all by myself!! is a little big
                                                so I will need my daughter's help to change it.
                                              Meanwhile, I thought I would post this card
                                               that my friend Angelica made today for
                                                           a friend.
