Thank U, Grunge Style

Last weekend, I had several friends and family help me make 100 cards for Operation Write Home! Most of my friends were from the church I attend. The purpose of bringing everyone together to make the cards was three-fold:

First, I wanted to send LOTS of cards to Operation Write Home. Now, I could have done this by myself, and I have, but this brings me to my second purpose. . .

Second, I wanted to share my passion for making cards and my desire to make cards for Operation Write Home, with my friends.

Third, I'm not very comfortable throwing parties, so this was a fantastic excuse to bring family and friends together, make some cards, and just enjoy each other's company. I was fortunate that I was able to hold the event at my church.

Because I did have so many family and friends helping me, I wanted to let them know how much I appreciate them. This is one of the cards I will be sending to family and friends, letting them know how thankful I am that they allowed me to share my passions with them.

Best Friend

I was able to sneak in one card before I head out for a week. I found the sketch at Operation Write Home, for inspiration. Already knowing what my layout is going to look like, it makes it easier to decide on a paper selection.

March Birthday

I love the way this DSP and the stamps work together. The layout is from Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #213. The color selection and theme is from this month's Creative Crew challenge at SplitCoastStampers. We needed to make a birthday card using green or purple. As you can see, I chose to use both colors.

Birthday Roses

This is so exciting. This my first post as a member of the Creative Crew Team at SplitCoastStampers. I was invited to be a part of the Team and will be taking on this challenge for the next four months. I would love it if you would follow me along this journey.

The first challenge - DSP/Color focus: Show us your take on new Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, using some cool wintery colors (cool blues, soft pinks, all mixed up with some earthy tones of red berries, evergreens). All of the challenges can be found here

It's a little difficult to tell, but under the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum I sponged some Soft Blue and Pink Pirouette.

Just For You

This card just sort of fell together. I had the narrow strip already the right width, and I built the card from there. This card was quick and super easy.

Supplies: Stamps - Label Love; Paper - Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Sycamore Street DSP, Very Vanilla; Ink - Rich Razzleberry; Accessories - Vintage Faceted buttons

Secret Garden

Have you ever been so busy you don't have time to play with your stamps? Of course, then it's all I can think about. Then, when I have an opportunity to sit and play . . . NOTHING! I have new stamps, new colors, and just can't figure out where to start.

If you ever are in a creative block, there are plenty of places to get inspiration. One way is to cruise around other paper-crafting blogs; another is to visit Pinterest. Of course, for me, Pinterest seems to create more delays, because I see cards and food and crochet patterns and garden ideas. . . you get the idea. So, another great place for inspiration is to check out some of the challenge sites. This week I pulled my inspiration from Color Throwdown.

Supplies: Stamps - A Round Array, Label Love, Secret Garden; Paper - Daffodil Delight, Temping Turquoise, Whisper White; Ink - Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise; Accessories - 3/16" Daffodil Delight brads, Artisan Label punch, Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon
