Inspiration Challenge #9

I really like Makeesha Byl's blog and thought I would have a go at her challenge. Looking at the other ladies submission's - there is a lot of talent out in SU land.

Well, here is my card. Just remember I do have my 'L' plates on.. And my supplies are limited! all I could think of when I saw the Latte stamp is a chocolateish color. (is that really a word??)

My supplies were Kraft, Close to cocoa and Confetti white. Ink is Choc chip as is the ribbon. And there is a bit of choc chip chalking around the edge - a bit hard to see. The paper is (I think last years) close to cocoa - please let me know if I am incorrect.

Enjoy your evening.

Another couple of cards

I know these are quite simple. I had a small (two person) workshop at work during lunch (we only had 1/2 hr) and this is what I made.
I won't bother with the recipe, as it is quite simple and could be fancied up with ease. Help yourself..

This next one is a copy (yes a blatent copy) of a card that Claire (Creative Puddle) sent me. So thanks Claire!!

Have a great day.

Stay tuned... I will upload some more tomorrow..

Well, there was a couple of new uploads. Thanks for looking. I will upload the other 4 tomorrow.

Have a great day.

How I wanted to get my hands on this guy!

Once I saw him in the catalogue... I couldnt wait until I could play and YES, he is a rooster!!!

Stamps: Rustic Rooster
Paper: choc chip and Whisper white
Ink: Choc chip, versamark and Real red
Punch: circle.
I used the choc chip chalk and dusted around the rooster after I tore the edge!..

I hope you enjoyed this card, as I did and yes I did CASEd from Splitcoaster stampers.

Take care

Ok... Circle Circus... This one was fun to do

I guess you want the recipe?
Stamps: circle circus and Think happy thoughts
Paper: choc chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Whisper white
Ink: Choc chip, pumpkin pie, old olive and Whisper white craft
Punchs:Scallop circle and circles.
Ribbon: Pumpkin pie and old olive grosgrain..

I know pretty simple and thanks to the person on Splitcoast who had the great ideas!I did have to think about how to make the scallop stamp become more than one colour and out came the pens!

I know, I know... slacker eh!

I have finally got around to taking some photos of the cards I have made! But yet again Photoshop crashed. Luckily my IT expert (Mark) came to the rescue.. And now it seems to be working again! These cards are either from the catalogue, CASEd from Claire or from Splitcoast stampers. Although this first one I made for our new Great Niece Elizabeth Eileen.

Keep watching - am on a roll with uploading. Enjoy, please
