It's your birthday....

It sure is a snowy day here on Long Island! I dug out the front steps and then headed downstairs to make a card while I warmed up. Here is my card for the color challenge at Splitcoast today, to use red, dark brown and light brown together. I immediately thought this stamp would be perfect and wanted to use a Sugar Pea Designs stamp set. They just celebrated their first birthday and are hosting a blog hop with great prizes. At the end of the hop we are to post a card. My plan is to grab a cup of coffee and hop along with them next. 
This card is also for the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge this week (SSSC253), shown below:

I have another card for today, this one using a new technique for me - White on White. I stamped the flowers in Versamark and embossed them. Then I colored them in using Copics, This was not an easy challenge. I tried first with a snowman stamp and then with a bird stamp but wasn't happy with either result. I also have embossing powder all over the place! It does look pretty cool with the flowers and really stands alone here.

Thanks for stopping by again!! 


Thanks a Bunch!

Here is a card I made for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast from yesterday, which honored Tracy Valure. I used an image from Sugar Pea Designs for my card today in honor of their first birthday last week. The really have some cute stamps there and this one is no exception. I colored her with copics and followed the design of one of Tracy's cards. I used a picket fence Die-namic from MFT for a border between the papers.

With Sympathy

Here's a little different style for me for today's inspiration challenge. I love clean and simple cards and we were asked to be inspired by the queen of CAS (in my book!), Angela. She uses a wonderful mix of texture and elegance in all of her cards and I hope I captured a bit of that here.

Happy Happy Birthday!

I had time to finish another card today, this one a birthday card for the color challenge on the MFT challenge website and for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, shown below:

The colors for MFT Color Challenge 14 were a blueberry, light purple, lime and white. I love the contrast of the lime against the blues and thought the balloons would work perfectly. They are from MFT Die-namics Balloon STAX and I used a sentiment from MFT LJD Celebrate You.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by today!! Kelly


I had fun making this one today, maybe because "really?" was one of my favorite phrases this past year. This sassy girl from MFT is really adorable, and looks cool in her paper pieced dress. I made this card for the sketch challenge this week at MFT, shown below, and for the Ways to Use It challenge at SCS, which was to use ovals. Perfect! I have made a goal of doing all of the MFT sketches this year. This is my first for this year, but I've only missed two so far.

Today's card used MFT PI Feeling Sassy stamp set, as well as the Diagonal stripes background stamp for the oval. For MFT Die-namics, I used the Large Scallop and the Sentiment Strips.

Shower with Love

Here is a card I made for the featured stamper challenge today at Splitcoast, honoring Claudia. I found a great background paper about rain and finally used a die-cut umbrella from MFT I have had for a while. Just fit so perfectly there and so perfect for the rainy day we are having here in the northeast. Easy card today, but fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
