UDI Color Challenge #63 - Merry & Type

Happy Tuesday everyone!  You know that means it is color challenge time!!!  Here is this week's color challenge:

  • Pumpkin Pie
  • More Mustard
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Pear Pizzaz
  • Whisper White
I'm thinking these colors should have been last week!  They remind me a lot of Thanksgiving.  I decided to go with it and to try to create a Christmas project using these colors.  This is what I came up with!

I used the stamp set called, Merry & Type from the Idea Book & Catalog.  I colored the ornaments using a blender pen and the More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, and Pear Pizzazz inks.  I finished it off with some white organdy ribbon and an antique brad!

................ Until tomorrow!

MDS Monday - Catalog CASE

Hello my friends!

Do you know what CASE stands for?  I used to think it was Copy And Steal Everything.  LOL  I have been made to realize that it actually stands for Copy And Share Everything!  This week our MDS Challenge is to CASE a project from either the Idea Book & Catalog or from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I chose the Holiday Mini - Page 34.  I didn't have exactly everything I needed, but I think it turned out pretty darn good!  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  I have included my CASE'd project as well as the clip from the mini catalog to show the two side by side!  I'd love for you to create a CASE'd project!  Won't you give it a try and share it with me?!

This is the catalog version!

This is my MDS Version!

...... Until tomorrow!

Tag, Tags & More Tags

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it is time for the final pushes of Christmas!  Here is a great idea for all of those holiday gifts that you will need to wrap up!  Using the stamp set, Tags Til Christmas, and the scallop envelope die, you can recreate these awssome projects!

The box was created using the scalloped envelope die (two of them attached together).  All of the embelleshments that are stamped on the tags are from the stamp set, Tags Til Christmas.

I want to thank my customer, Janice T. from Thompson, CT for sharing this awesome project with me1  Leave me a note here on the blog to tell me about your Black Friday shopping experiences!

A Day of Thanksgiving!

Hello All!

I hope that your day yesterday was full of fun, family, and lots of food!  I know ours was!  After an extremely busy couple of weeks, I was fearful that I wouldn't pull off a Thanksgiving meal for my husband's family!  I have had lots of stamping classes, Dr. appointments for both Katelyn & Paul, and a full work load at school!

Even though they are all over 21, they are still at the "Kid's Table"  LOL 
Got up early on Thanksgiving morning and Paul helped me to clean the house from top to bottom!  I was then ready to prepare our feast!

After dinner, we all went out to the back yard to send off into the wild "blue" yonder some lantern "balloons". What an amazing thing to see!

Never a dull moment when the Chenail's get together!

I will leave you with an adorable creation!  This was done by Karen S., one of my gals from RI!  Thanks for sharing Karen!
This project was created with our tags die for the Big Shot, as well as the extra large flower punch (for the gingerbread man!) 

................ Until tomorrow!

UDI Color Challenge #61 -

What a great color pallette this week!
  • Blushing Bride
  • Early Espresso
  • Soft Suede
Each week in addition to our color pallette we are also able to use either whisper white or very vanilla.  I decided that vanilla would be my choice to add this week!

I used the Hello, Doiley background stamp and stamped it in the Blushing Bride ink.  I then used the set called, Field Flowers. I stamped the flowers and stems in the Soft Suede ink.  The verse is also from this set and was stamped in black ink.  The finishing touch was adding the Basic black satin ribbon!

Don't forget to share your projects with me!

Not So Seriously.....

Today's project is one that is a November club member project.  I have used the layout before but this is the first time I use the stamp set.  The set is called, "Not So Seriously".  I bought it because of a great saying that is included in the set.

There is one stamp that says:  Happy Birthday from the bottom of my butt"... and another that says, "Because it is much bigger than my heart!"

I got an awesome birthday card from my downline member, Sharon G. (I will share that soon) so I was inspired
use the stamp set to create something on my own. This card uses a couple of the newest in colors; Pool party and Island Indigo.  I used Wild Wasabi too!  The DSP is from Flower Garden!

............ Until tomorrow!
