Razzleberry Elements

Here is a simple card I made using the Elements of Style. It was so easy since it is monochromatic. I sent this card out as a RAK (random act of kindness).
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Very Vanilla satin ribbon, Champagne shimmer mist
It is hard to see the simmer in this picture, but if you click on the image it will enlarge and you should get a better idea of how pretty it is IRL. So shimmery!
Hope you are enjoying the long weekend. Don't forget that the Last Chance Lists come out tomorrow! If you see anything on the list that you can't live without, you should order it right away. All the accessories are as supplies last! Until next time, remember if I can stamp, you can, too!

Tropical Invitation

Hi, Stampers! I know! I know! I haven't posted much lately. Life has been busy. End of school, sport practice, new job, anniversaries, and the list goes on.
Anyhow- last Saturday I had a workshop and this is what we made. It's a cute little pocket card invitation. I used the cute little coconut drink image from the Tropical Party stamp set.
The cardstock colors are Very Vanilla, Brilliant Blue (bye bye Brilliant Blue) and Bashful Blue. The ink colors are Brilliant Blue and Basic Brown (bye bye Basic Brown). I also used the Brilliant Blue Stampin' Write Marker and some Very Vanilla satin ribbon, some hemp twine and the scalloped circle punch.
In case you didn't know, the bye bye's were because Stampin' Up! is having a color renovation in July. Many colors are retiring to make room for a fresh updated pallet to choose from.
If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like more information about our new colors, drop me a line. I"d love to help you with any questions. Until next time, remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

A week late, but hopefully not a dollar short!

Hi, Stampers! I know I haven't been as diligent posting on my blog as I should be. Life has been hectic. I have applied for a new position at my workplace, we have had major storms here in OK, and life in general has been busy!

Anyhow, I'm hoping to get back into the routine of things. Thanks for being patient with me.

The first card here is a graduation card for my nephew. He is now finished with high school and entering the world of adulthood! What an exciting time. I wish him the best in his new adventure!

This next card is for my cousin's birthday. We are all meeting tomorrow at a local Chinese restaurant for a surprise birthday party for her! She hasn't ever had a birthday party so I'll be she will really be surprised! Her brothers and sister will be there and her children and grandchildren, my parents (her's have gone on) and my sister and me. I bet we have a great time.

I hope each of you have an enjoyable and productive weekend. I will try to post again very soon. Until then, remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

I'm baaaa-aaack!

Well the craft fair is behind me now. It was a lot of fun and I met some really great people! I even cleared a few dollars. Woo hoo! Now I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things and keep you folks entertained at least once a week.
Here's a little card I came up with after looking at Stamping 411's sketch challenge for this Saturday. I'm not sure I'm totally happy with the colors, but the Bermuda Bay looks so tropical and water-like and the Sahara Sand looks like, well, sand. LOL I'm just not sure about the Old Olive. The Pumpkin Pie is OK, but maybe too dark on top of the Bermuda Bay. I really wanted the palm trees from the new Island Oasis DSP from the summer mini.
It is also one of the things my gals will be making next weekend. We usually meet on the afternoon of the 2nd Sunday, but since it is Mother's Day, we are meeting on Saturday morning. If you are in the OKC metro area and would like to come, send me an email and I'll let you know where I am. We'd love to have you join us!
Let me know what you think of the color combo on this card. I'd really like some opinions. Until next time, remember that if I can stamp, you can, too!
