Mommy Needs Some Creating Time...

It's been awhile since I have been in my stamp room and stamped "just to stamp." For no other reason than I needed to use the creative part of my brain. My days are filled with feedings, diaper changes, playing with my 4 year old, and cooing at my baby. :) Not much time for much else. Yesterday my 4 year old had a friend over and my baby was asleep so I ran to my room for 10 mins. I hurried and tried to come up with something fun. This is not my best creation at all...but I saw the ribbon that ended up on this card laying on my table and built the card around that. Here it is...
The flower pot is from the Cupcake stamp set that is in the mini catalog (that ends THIS SATURDAY...April 30th!!!!). I stamped one of the cupcake bottoms in Early Espresso ink on Early Espresso cardstock and punched it out. I used that for the flower base. Then I just punched out some flowers using the Itty Bits Punch Pack and glued them on. Added some of the tiny pearls in the centers. Now...do NOT look close at the ribbon cutout that I did. Needed to check on the girls at this point so just had to hurry up. But hopefully you can tell everything else that I did. Here are some close-up's...



Color comb is Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Crumb Cake. Probably my most used color combo. :)


Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoy!!!

April Club Projects...

We had club this week!!! I haven't had any kind of social life these days, so it was fun to get together with my girls! We had a great time. They got to meet our new club addition...

...and make some fun projects! What could be better than that?!?! :) Here is the card we made... I LOVE the "Take A Spin" stamp set. I just think it's something fun and different to use. I got a card VERY similar to this at Leadership that I LOVED! (Thanks Denise! :) ) I just had to make it a bit more simple than the one she did. :) I still think it turned out to be a fun card. I love layering punched images on cards to give it some texture. On this card in the background I hope you can see the stars. Here is an up-close picture...


Color combo for this card is Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turquoise. That Designer Series Paper on the side of the card is from the hostess benefits Level 1 pack.


The second project we made was a fun 3x3 card holder. Here it is... I used the Designer Series Paper and the stamp set from the "Spring is Blossoming" promotion going on this month. (Click HERE to read about that.) Then we also used the Fabulous Phrases stamp set. Here is a top shot of the folder...



When you open it up you see this...There are four cards in the set. Each one uses one of the stamps in the "Four Frames" stamp set. Here are all the cards...We used River Rock textured cardstock as our card base and I LOVE the subtle texture that it adds. Here is an up-close picture of that...



Colors used in this project are River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, and Not Quite Navy.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!!!!

March Club Projects...

I am back for a minute! :) I have club tomorrow...so thought it would be about time to post the projects we made LAST month!!!! I just really have been a bad blogger these days...but I have been trying to be a good mommy. Adjusting to two kids has been...well...an adjustment! :) I don't get much done each day, other than feed the baby and in between try to give attention to the 4 year old. :) Anyway...here is the card we made last month... Accessories galore for this card! I love it! LOVE LOVE those fabric buttons. They all got to use whatever one they wanted....so not everyone had the polka dot. And I got this layout straight from Stampin' Up! It was fun to do! Here are some close-up's...

Color combo is Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, and Old Olive.




This next project is super fun and here it is... HOW CUTE?! And what is this container?! you may be asking. Well...it's an empty brad/accessory container! LOVE IT! I have been saving them and this month we just altered them and turned them into a fun treat holder. Here are some close-up's...



Baby crying so off I go! Hope you enjoy and thanks for visiting!!!!
