Birthday Challenge

Yes, it is my birthday today! Spending it at home. Yesterday, I was checking Lindsay's blog and found she has this 3 challenges, you can participate in one or all three . You can click here to check for more info.
On the first card I made it for the challenge # 1 Technique: Where I am try to keep stamps and embellishments short by not stamping at all . I was inspired by a great artist paper in Etsy. I used a paper piercing and as letter molds I used Chipboard Alphabet from Jo-Ann Scrap Essentials. It was easy and therapeutic.

just a different view of the same card.

This card, I made for Challenge # 2 Color: Making a card with none Christmasy colors!? Holy cow! Well, I did my best and I think I pull it off. Let me think, for this one I used a lot of tiny little things specially color. I used all Stampin Up colors from the Bold brights set of ink pads ( Tempting turquoise, Orchid Opulence, Yoyo Yellow) I usedPunch Pals stamp set, Bassil purplish cardstock and my mind's eye designer paper. Ufff... I think I got them all. If you have any questions about any of the materials please let me know!

I have made other Christmas cards but I have always used, you kow the regular colors, greens and reds, etc. I like how this one turned out, what do you think? Do you think you can make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors? Give it a try!

This is the inside of the card. Enjoy it and don't forget to let me know what you think.

In the mean time, I am going to keep making some more cards or even better I will keep checking blogs for ideas!

An 8 year Old Girly Card

Not much hapening this week, after being on a great Hike in Merida. I wanted to also show a card I made before traveling.

It was made for an 7 year girly girl who was turning 8. I loved covering the chipboard I need to get better files to give them a better finish. I used a regular small file and I was soooooo tempted to use embossing powder... (sigh) didn't have the time and I thought it would have riund the kind of vintage look of it.

Anyway, here it is. I used DCWV paper and My mind's eye paper. I enjoyed using Best ocassion chipboard punched board, I loved using 2 way glue, Defining Alphabet, Wood Stamps from the paper studio/stampabiities.
Hope you like it and hope you enjoy it!

Kristina Werner Color Inspiration # 27

I have not been very inspired lately! I keep looking at gorgeous card makers, I am soooooooo impress with everything they create and then I checked on Kristina's blog and there it was, a Color Inpsiration, I am a bit sad there isn't going to be Top Ten but instead, we get something greater not only we can check each other's submissions but also get Blog Candies... yummmmmy! and so here are the colors for this week and my submissions.

Babies! How cute they are!!!! I keep making baby cards for invitations or just for congratulations. This one is for a baby girl.

Yes, This one was inspire in one of the soooo many Cards Kristina made some time ago! I looooooved that card and so I decided to give it a try. It is definitely not as super dupper cute as hers but I still think it is cute what do you guys think?

This one I have made taking the template from the card I posted some time ago. I couldn't help but adding a brown ribbon and make it yummy. You can also see the tiny little line I was going to use to add a message but I just didn't think it would look very good. Pretty simple yet again cute!

Hope you like them and help you get inspired to keep creating.
