Yee-Haw...Friday Favorites!

It's time for another Friday Favorites over at SSINKspiration!  Here is my current favorite...


#138107  $25.95


And here is my card...


I don't know how often I will use this stamp set BUT...I just couldn't pass up this cute lasso and cowboy hat.  And sentiments like "Howdy" and "Yee-Haw" just sealed the deal!  I promise to give YA'LL more samples with this set!


I am also linking this card up to CAS(E) this Sketch this week.

I love Sketch #97!

SSINKspiration: October Layout Sketch

Thanks for stopping by today!  It's time for a fun Layout Sketch over at SSINKspiration!

Here is our sketch...



And here is my layout...


I used this sketch as a starting point to place my pictures on the 2nd page of the layout!


Here are some details...


Those are a few leaves made out of vellum and then dry embossed them with embossing folders.



I love the Day to Day Project Life Stamp Set for scrapbooking!  It's perfect for labeling dates.



I love the washi tape on the side of this layout!  



The AUTUMN also comes from the Day to Day Project Life Stamp Set.

Can You Case It? #41: Clean & Quick Card

It's time for a fun new challenge at Can You Case It?!  

Check it out...



I love Clean & Quick cards!  They are so much fun and SO EASY to create!  

Here is my card...


The DSP that I used comes from the Maritime DSP Pack.  I love the Red and White Grid design!

I used two stamp sets on this card.  I love the circles from the Draw The Line Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped those in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  The second Stamp Set I used is the Holiday Invitation Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink to match the DSP on this card.  The sentiments in this set are so much fun!



Also linking up with the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge this week!  Sketch #96!


This card was so quick to create!  I hope that you will join in with us at Can You Case It? this week!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Stamp Set Focus: Gorgeous Grunge

There are so many different things that you can create with just one stamp set!  The thing I love most about Stampin' Up! is that they sell most of their stamps in sets!  So you have multiple images that coordinate and you can create SO MANY different cards with just one set!

Today over at SSINKspiration we are working with the stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge...



And here is my card...


This card is a CASE of a card that I did earlier this week.  You can see it here.  I changed the theme from Halloween to Christmas and I think I love it even more!  What do you think?

I love the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set!  When it was introduced, I knew it would be one of my favorites and it is!  It adds so much character to the background of cards and scrapbook pages.


Thanks for stopping by today to see my card.  Don't forget to stop by the SSINKspiration main blog to see what the other Design Team Members have created for you today!

Inspiration Challenge

Today over at SSINKspiration we are having an Inspiration Challenge.  We picked this picture to be inspired by...



And here is the card that I came up with...


I loved the color combination of Gray, Black, White, Blue and Yellow.  So I used these Stampin' Up! colors on my card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smokey Slate, Hello Honey and Coastal Cabana.

I also knew that I wanted to add in a flower because I love the random flowers around the room in the picture!



I am also linking up with the sketch from Retro Sketches...Sketch #136!  I love it!



I hope that this picture inspires you to create something as well!  Don't forget to head on over to the SSINKspiration main blog to see what the other Design Team Members created for you today!  You won't want to miss these cute projects!

I'm from Kansas City and it's getting a little exciting around here!  


I've been a Royals fan my whole life and the last time they were in the playoffs was when I was 4!  So this is pretty exciting!


They start playing in the ALCS on Friday and we are ready to wear our blue around here!  My hubby was asking for a Royals polo and hat for his birthday or Christmas.  Well those dates are in December and it will be more fun to wear the in Royaltober (October).  So I ordered them and tonight we had an early birthday for him.  The kids LOVED it!


I, of course, had to make a card because we wrapped the gifts and you have to have a card with a gift, right?!?!

I saw this blue pumpkin on my Mom's facebook page...


And it inspired me to make this card!

Here's a picture of our party...
We had cupcakes and ice cream and EVERYTHING!  And since it wasn't really Daddy's birthday, we all got a candle to blow out!

Technique Tuesday: Bokeh

It's Technique Tuesday over at SSINKspiration!  We are focusing on the Bokeh Technique today.  You can check out a quick tutorial over on the SSINKspiration main blog right now!

Here is my card...


I created this background by inking a single star stamp and stamping it in random locations 3 times before inking again in another color.  So easy and SO CUTE!  It adds so much depth to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure you head on over to SSINKspiration to check out what the other Design Team Members created for you today!  You won't want to miss these cards!
