DD Challenge-Gatefold Card

The latest Challenge for the DD group was to make a gate fold card-Well here it is! Inside and out side-The images are Sugar Nellies colored with copics.  The Paper and button and Die are all Stampin' Up!  

I finally got my All in on printer working!  Thanks to 5 hours of tech support from Epson and Apple yesterday!  What a Day started with a needle in my mouth (had a tooth filled) ended with tech support-you don't even want to hear what else I had to endure just suffice it to say-it weren't pretty!  Oh I made this card Sunday night so it was spared my ugly day!

Razzelberry lemonade-AGAIN

Okay-here is one more card using Razzelberry Lemonade DSP-are you sick of it yet?  This one does look different-there is no Razzelberry  I used papers that only show Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry.  I stamped the Razzle Dazzle stamp set on the textured card stock-I love that the in colors are available in 8.5 x 11 texture card stock!

Challenge Yellow and Purple card

I'm finally posting the challenge from a few weeks ago it was to make a card with a neutral base and purple and yellow of any shade.  All products are again the sneak peek for SU!  The Top note is DSP the Very Vanilla layer is stamped and sponged the Rich Razzelberry and Crushed Curry work just fine for purple and yellow.

Well I haven't posted in a week-first I wasn't feeling well then my scan wouldn't work then my camera's memory card was corrupted!  Issues with technology continue but I did manage to scan this picture to share-It is of my scrappling-I did the pair-the square card and the leftover also known as a scrappling-and I put a magnet on it to make it a bookmark.  These are for my secrete Sister!  I used all Stampin' Up new to be released on July 30th products!  Including new "in colors".

Stationary Basket

Hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable weekend-We had a lovely visit in New Mexico -after the worst adventure getting there last week-Tuesday was not the day to be flying!  took us 18 hours to get from Philly to  Albuquerque.  So tonight I'd like to share this clipboard and magnetic clip-  The clipboard is SU!-I colored the edges and a border around the front with craft ink and a sponge dauber I was happy with how it turned out as far as helping it look more finished-I think this would look cute with a picture or memo clipped on it can hang on the wall or in a cubicle, the clip is from Walmart and I punched the hole for the ribbon with the crop-a-dile I used crystal effects to glue down the paper in the circular indentation then sealed it all over with a heavy coat of crystal effects!  All stamps, inks and paper are Stampin' Up!  I love this set of woodland animals-I'm so happy they made the new catalogue!  but I am sad this paper will be retiring, along with the Baja Breeze color that it features, although SU did say to hold on to our retired "in colors" so who knows what they have up their sleeve for next year!!!!

More Stationary

These are two more of the projects from the stationary basket-this is two of the cards from the set of six and a journal with matching pen.  This is Bella Blue Paper-Very Vanilla and Not quite Navy along with Craft Paper!  One cool thing that I did was for the piece of paper over the top of the book I ran it through the xyron with laminate/adhesive so it was more durable and had greater flexibility.  The ribbon is not on the cards it's around the box.

End of the Year Gifts!

If you've been wondering where I've been the last few days-here is your answer-making end of the year gifts-Reilly wasn't any to happy about delivering-she wanted nothing to do with them-especially since I put Love You! on the tags for the librarians and the school secretary.  I found these notebooks in the art store they had simple paper covers on them and have thick cardboard backing-all I had to do was tear off the covers and use them as a template for scoring-I used the cover weight DSP from Stampin' Up!  I am so happy to have found these acetate boxes the larger note books fit right in them!  I couldn't take pictures of everything before I sent it out Reilly was was too cranky-I had to bribe her with a mani and pedi to get her to deliver-poor baby is so shy-sad thing is she gets it from me-notice I'm not delivering the gifts!  Do as I say not as I do!  Ugh!

more stationary

The next set of cards was this blank inside set of 6.  Close to cocoa and very vanilla card stock close to cocoa ink.  They are simple but elegant-I put just a touch of glitter on the center of the largest flower.  This background stamp is retired but one I won't be parting with soon!

Stationary Basket

Well I have been very busy stampin' the last week-I had a class last wednesday night -then I had to have a handmade basket of stationary put together for the Beef and Beer this past Friday night.  I will post over this week pictures of the contents of the basket.  Here is the first set of cards-it's a set of six Birthday cards-all products Stampin' Up!  except the acetate box.
