Wishing for a Bubble Bath

This week's Totally Stampalicious Challenge is a color challenge - Pink & RedI used this week's Card Patterns Sketch 99 for the layout.  This was actually a really quick card to put together.  The image is Scarlette Bubble Bath.

This card was inspired by my sweet daughter Emily.  She will be taking bubble baths for the next 3 weeks because she fractured her left wrist (she fell at the Bounce House).  Her cast is hot pink so it really fits with this week's color challenge.  When she found out that she would have to take baths instead of showers she was not at all happy.  Once she got in the tub full of bubbles she decided maybe this bath thing wasn't so bad.  We're going to be doing some extra pampering at our house over the next couple of weeks!

Stamps:  Scarlette Bubble Bath (Bugaboo & Totally Stampalicious) , Big Bold Birthday (SU)
Paper:  Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Pretty in Pink DP
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake, Blush Blossom, Real Red, Black Staz-On
Accessories:  Pearls, Word Window Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Large Circle Punch, Large Scallop Circle Punch, SU Pretty in Pink Ribbon, Gel Pen, Stickles

SCS Featured Stamper - Emily Leiphart

When I found out that today's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers was my Blogger friend Emily I just had to play along!  Emily's Blog Art from the Heart  is one of my favorite places to visit for inspiration!

Here is my card inspired  by Emily's Hello Birdie card.....


I used the Stampin Up Cheers to You set for this one.  I always admire Emily's ability to make a clean and simple card that has the perfect balance.  

Congratulations to Emily for being chosen as today's featured stamper!

Thanks for checking out my Featured Stamper inspired card!

I have some exciting news.....I have been invited to be the March Guest Designer for Totally Stampalicious!   I'm thrilled that they asked me to join them and I'm already looking forward to working with their very talented Design Team.

Today's card is for this week's Totally Stampalicious Challenge - to make any kind of Masculine card.  You can find the challenge HERE.  I made this card using the Hawt Dawg Digital Stamp set from Totally Stampalicious and the Stampin Up Sporting digital stamp set from My Digital Studio.  The #1 on Hawt Dawg's jersey was added in MDS.  The sentiment is also from the Sporting SU digital set!  

This card is for my Godson's 11th birthday.  I let him pick out his favorite character from the Totally Stampalicious digital sets and he picked this one!  I love that I can just pick out the stamp set, download it and use it right away!

Mix it Up Birthday

This week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is to Mix it Up - use stamps from 2 different sets on your card.  I chose to use Attitude Ruby for my image and the It's your Birthday sentiment from the Cupcake JJ set.  Both sets are linked in my supply list below.  There is an all white challenge over at Digital Tuesday Challenge
this week.  The challenge is to use all white except for one image that you color.  I liked the look of the all white and wanted to try it out so I used that theme here.  Since I didn't use any digital images on this card I'm not including it in their challenge.  If you want to mix it up and play along with Totally Stampalicious this week click HERE.

Stamps - Attitude Ruby, Cupcake JJ
Paper -  Whisper White, Shimmery White, Watercolor Paper
Ink - Basic Black, Ruby Red, Blush Blossom
Accessories - Swirls Embossing Folder, Floral Fusion Die, Basic Pearls, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Scallop Trim Border punch

Follow Your Heart

This is going to be another busy week.  Luckily I had time this weekend to make the cards I needed for this month's Stampin' Up card swap.  They are due this Thursday so again I am waaay early - LOL.  This month's theme is Soft Subtles.  There are 9 people in our exchange.  I made 10 of these because I like even numbers.

Since this is for my Stampin' Up swap - all of the supplies are Stampin' Up.  I used the polka dot embossing folder on vellum paper for the top half of the card.  I also used a layer of vellum paper over the sentiment to create a little heart shaped window.  The stamp set is retired but I love it and it fit perfectly in my heart window.

Stamps: SU Whimsical Words
Paper: so saffron, rose red, certainly celery, shimmery white
Ink:  chocolate chip
Accessories:  polka dot embossing folder, eyelet border punch, small heart punch, hearts set Sizzlits

I'm including this in the following challenges:

Bugaboo - Emboss it
Speedy the Cat - Embossing
Stampin B's - Old / New
Old - Eyelet Border Punch & Polka Dot Embossing Folder
New - Hearts Set Sizzlets 
IDIC (I Did it Creations) - Vellum

Celebrating Your Birthday Cupcake!

For my first post of 2011 I made this birthday card for a good friend.  I used the theme from this week's Totally Stampalicious Challenge - Cupcake Card and this week's Stampin B's Challenge  Celebration.
I used the Totally Stampalicious Cupcake JJ  set for the image and sentiment.

One of my "goals" for this New Year is to make cards BEFORE I need them.  This counts ~ right?  I don't officially need it until Thursday!  Yay Me!  (said in my best London Tipton voice for those of you that watch Disney Channel)

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
