SCS Creative Crew February Holiday Focus

SU-Creative-Crew

 

No Brainer day is February 27.

Make a project in the spirit of No Brainer Day: simple, easy, obvious or totally logical. Add a little bling for some elegance.

I have to admit, I thought about my “No Brainer” project for days and days and days before I finally worked out what I was going to make!  I still can’t believe how long it took me to come up with this simple little tag!

Hearts A Flutter 003

Cute enough to give for Valentines Day, and simple enough to put together in under 5 minutes!  Maybe I should try for no brainer projects more often!

Head over to the February Creative Crew Challenge Gallery and check out the awesome projects my fellow Design Team members have posted for your inspiration, and get ready to make your own no brainer!  Upload your project to Splitcoaststampers and include the keyword CCREW0214HF.  I can’t wait to check out what everyone makes!

Check back tomorrow for the Creative Crew Scrapbook and More Focus Challenge details and my project!

February SCS SU Creative Crew Catalogue Focus

SU-Creative-CrewCatalogue Focus Challenge – Punches

Stampin’Up! has so many great punches that make our cardmaking so much more fun! Use your punches to create a window card.

I used the 1″ square punch and Petite Petals stamp set from the Celebrate the Everyday catalogue for my Creative Crew Design Team submission.

Petite Petals 001 - Front

Loving the Petite Petals stamp set and matching punch!  So easy to make quick and cute cards!  I do love this notecard size!

Petite Petals 001 - Inside

I’ve added a couple more flowers to the inside, and decided not to add a sentiment, so my card can be used for any occasion.

Pop over to the February Creative Crew Challenge Gallery to check out the gorgeous creations my fellow design team members have made with their punches, and get ready to play along!  Upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers and include the keyword CCREW0214CF.  Can’t wait to see what you make!

I will pop back tomorrow (when it’s going to be so much cooler here, thank god!) to share my creation for the Holiday Focus challenge.  See you then 🙂

Embellished Events

 

I finally pulled my Embellished Events stamp set out of my stash and teamed it with the Modern Medley DSP for this gorgeous wedding card!

Embellished Events 001 - Front

So pleased with how this turned out 🙂  Love those rhinestone bubbles too!

Embellished Events 001 - Inside

How gorgeous is that sentiment?  Perfect for a wedding card!

It’s another hot one here again today, so I’m hoping to lock myself in my stamping room and get some more play time in!

Gifts of Kindness for Mojo Monday 328

Last night I sat down at my desk to play with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.

mojo328

Here’s what I came up with.

Gifts of Kindness 001 Front

This is my first play with the Gifts of Kindness stamp set, and I love how it turned out!

Gifts of Kindness 001 Detail

I cut the flowers out and popped them up on dimensionals to give them a little more wow!

Gifts of Kindness 001 Inside

Only one flower on the inside though…..I was a bit sick of cutting them out by then!

I’m hoping for more time in my craft room today…..it’s too hot to do anything else!  Stay cool!

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh Whale

Today’s project is the last of the Valentines Day projects.  We made this cute little Petal Cone box.

Oh Whale 001

With the Happy Whale Clearlits Die this was super easy to decorate!  The heart was cut from a sheet of the More Amore Specialty DSP, and we were set to go!

Tomorrow I will be sharing my first attempt (and the only attempt so far) at using MDS, so be sure to pop in and check that out.

More Amore Gift Box

Another catch up project to share with you today 🙂  Only one more after this one!

We made this More Amore gift box for Valentines day.

More Amore Box

We filled them with cookies we baked and decorated using the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps…..but there’s no photos to show of those as they are long gone!

More Amore Box Detail

I love how the paper bow turned out!  The Designer Builder Brads completed it beautifully 🙂

At just $4.95 for a pack of 4 of these Kraft gift boxes, they make a super cheap gift.  Just add some designer series papers and a pretty bow, and your next gift is taken care of!

Tomorrow I will share the last of the Aviary cards we made yesterday, so be sure to stop by to check that one out 🙂

Hearts A Flutter

I’m still playing catch up….today’s card is one I made with my regular stampin’ ladies for Valentines day!  It’s a case of this card by the talented Ann Schach.

Hearts A Flutter 002 Front

I’ve kept all Ann’s design elements, just added a few layers…for those who know me, they know that I just don’t cope without layers!!

Hearts A Flutter 002 Inside

How cute is that pierced heart???  I love it!  The Occasions Paper Piercing Pack made this super easy to get right!

Tomorrow I have another Aviary card to share with you, so make sure you pop in for a look!

Thanks for stopping by.

Aviary Birthday

I have really been enjoying playing with the Aviary stamp set!  Today’s card is a case of this gorgeous card made by Andrea Walford.

Aviary 002 Front

I love how the bakers twine makes it look like the bird cage is hanging!

Aviary 002 Inside

I used the bakers twine again on the inside to “hang” the birdcage, but I probably should have stamped the cage down just a little bit further.  Not to worry, I love it anyway!

I will be making this with my regular group of stamping ladies on Monday…I know they will love it too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

Popping in quickly today to share a card I made a while ago using the gorgeous Pleasant Poppies stamp.

Pleasant Poppies 001 FrontHere’s the inside:

Pleasant Poppies 001 Inside

I love colouring in, so really enjoyed making this card 🙂  I coloured my poppies for the front of the card on a separate sheet of watercolour paper then cut them out and popped them on dimensionals.

Pleasant Poppies 001 Detail

That two-tone ribbon from our Occasions Catalogue really sets it off I think!
