My First My Digital Studio card

This is for the My Digital Studio Monday Challenge on the Utah Divas International blog. The challenge is to create a red, white and blue card in honor of President's Day on Monday, using My Digital Studio. I've had the program since November, but this is the first time I've used it to create anything! Now I don't know why I waited so long - this is really fun to use! Believe it or not, everything on this card was created digitally and printed on my printer, even the ribbon and brads! I will definitely be using My Digital Studio more often! If you are interested in purchasing My Digital Studio, get in touch with me. TFL!

Lindsey's Valentine

This is a card I created for my son to give to his girlfriend for Valentine's day. The colors are Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, and Whisper White. The background is stamped with heart images from the Confetti stamp set, and the "hugs & kisses" sentiment is from the All Holidays set. TFL!

Simply Adorned

It's amazing how new goodies can get the mojo going! This is the Simply Adorned pendant, chain, and crown charms from Stampin' Up! For the inside of the pendant, I stamped a 1 1/2 x 2 inch piece of Sahara Sand with images from the Bliss Sale-a-Bration set in Marina Mist, Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso. The pendant opens up like a locket, so you can change out the images inside to match any outfit. What a fun new accessory!

Build a Blossom

I got some new stamps this week, and you know I had to get them inked right away! This is the new Build a Blossom set from the Occasions Mini Catalog, and I used the new Blossom Petals Punch to punch out the petals & leaves. The sentiment is from the Something to Celebrate Level 2 Hostess set, also in the mini catalog, and I stamped the background with Confetti. I highlighted the petals and leaves with Dazzling Diamonds glitter - it doesn't show very well in the pic, but its very sparkly IRL. The colors for this card are Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Pear Pizazz, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White.

Bliss Card for UDI Color Challenge

A friend recently told me about the Utah Divas International blog and the stamping challenges the have on their site. So, I checked it out. On Tuesdays they have a color challenge, and this week's challenge is to use Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla in combination. This card is my take on the challenge. I used the new Sale-a-Bration "Bliss" stamp set, along with "En Francais" for the background. The Very Vanilla cs is textured with Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, and I made the Chocolate Chip frame using the Top Note die and Crosshatch embossing folder. I finished off the card with a piece of Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon, a Filligree designer brad, and a quick spray of Log Cabin Smooch Spritz. Here is the link to the original challenge and the inspiration for it: Utah Divas International TFL!

I made this adorable little bucket using my Big Shot and the Pillow Box Die for the Big Shot. The bucket is Rose Red, accented with Regal Rose, Real Red, and Whisper White hearts - the large hearts are punched, the smaller ones are hand-cut. Tutorial for the bucket is on here:
