Twinkling Tuesdays...Ribbit!

That time of the week again. Our guest sketch man this week is Madelyn's younger brother Nick, who loves frogs. So, it's frog fest this week! No sketch to follow - just frogs or other little critters. This is a quickie-as I have scrapbooking class tonight and that's my focus on the 4th Tuesday and Wednesday of the month. I used the Unfrogettable set - which is a retired Stampin' Up! set. Such a fun set! I realized looking at the picture that the ribbon end is about stabbing the poor frog in the eye!Ouch! Oh well...enjoy! Check out the other Twinkling Tuesday's gals creations - I'm sure there are some fun cards on those blogs!

Twinkling Tuesday again

Happy Tuesday everyone. This week's sketch is broght to us by Madelynn's 7 year old brother, Jack. Great sketch Jack! I used one of my new favorite Stampin' Up! sets, Fifth Avenue Floral. Paper is Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Glossy white, and Naturals White. Ink is Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black. Also used - Word Window Punch, and mini brads. The sentiment comes from the set "Simply Said".
Check out what the Twinkling Tuesday team gals have come up with. You can also check out the Twinkling Tuesday blog with our featured Stamper, Bonnie. Link is in the right hand column. Enjoy!

A cup of tea...

I learned how to make these "mug" cards a long time ago, and decided to use my Fifth Avenue Floral set with it and make a more spring-like card. This might be fun for mother's day. I used Baja Breeze Cardstock with matching ink, glossy cardstock and Basic Black for the flower, and it's using 1/2 piece of cardstock. (cut 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 folded in half, and then the remaining cardstock folded and cut into a handle. FUN!

Twinkling Tuesday again...

It's that magical day of the week again - Twinkling Tuesday with Madelynn. This week's sketch was a bit of a challenge for me. I didn't get in the groove and kind of had to force myself with this one. I used Baja Breeze, one of my favorite colors, and Baroque Motifs, a nice classy set. My original visions of this sketch weren't looking as good on paper as they did in my head. Oh well....next week will hopefully flow easier!

Twinkling Tuesday again!

Our Twinkling Tuesday challenge this week was to use a stamp that we have not used before. You know...the stamp that you just HAD to have, but haven't used yet. So, this is hostess set "God's Beauty" was the first hostess set I picked out in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. However, I hadn't used the Butterfly yet. And I haven't used this sentiment yet from the "Smarty Pants" set. I paired them together in this card. This card is totally CASED (Copy and steal everything)from my friend Julia's card below. I just changed the color combo and the punch, and whaa laa...a new card! Thanks for the idea, Julia!
