SAB Love

Hope everyone enjoyed Valentine's Day and President's Day weekend. I spent some time at my craft desk creating projects with some older stamps and papers that I pulled out and dusted off :) It's fun to change things up every so often. Some of them were from last year's SU Sale-a-bration collection. Love that you can get all of the special sets in the digital version on one disk now! This Love sentiment/focal point on my card is from the Outlined Expressions set. I also love that you can resize the digi stamps; its so handy. I colored it in using watercolor crayons - bashful blue, certainly celery, so saffron, and then I mixed razzleberry and perfect plum for the L so that it matched the ribbon better (pomegranite). I added some dazzling details glitter glue to the little hearts for some fun sparkle. Then I mounted it to my card base, groovy guava, which is stamped with the little heart from the set Lovely Little Labels in Versamark ink.
Enjoy your weekend! (I'll be holed up again as another snow storm hits New England!)

Perk Up Soon

Here's a card that I recently created using one of the Go-To Sketches in the Jan/Feb issue of Paper Crafts. I really like the unique look of this layout. I pulled out some design paper from an older SU collection because I love the colors and the polka dots; the pink has a softness and warmth that I like for this time of year. The cute mug that I chose as my focal point is from SU's Scentsational Season set and it was cut out using the coordinating framelits. A little rhinestone in the center gives it a touch of bling. And the sentiment stamp used is from MFT's Miss You A Latte set.

Birdy Birthday Trigger

Today I played along with the Tuesday Trigger challenge over at the Moxie Fab World blog. Here's the inspiration photo

Such a cute photo! I love the wood, all the happy colors, the fun images! So to create my version in a card design, I pulled out my wood veneer to use for the background, some fun colorful design paper from Basic Gray's Lemonade collection, and one of the cute birds from Verve's Anniversary Birds stamp set. Because I wanted to make sure that my Happy Birthday sentiment (from SU's Eat Cake set) didn't get lost in all the color, I stamped it on a piece of Rose Red cardstock and then embossed it in white.
Happy Birthday to Cath's mom! :)
