PPA 258

I created this for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.   This combination is in my comfort zone.  I truly love bright colors, especially paired with Night of Navy!  I never used to use Navy, but it has become a favorite.  I think this combination would make a pretty flower card, but I really needed some birthday cards for younger folks.  I might try another if I get some time this week!

I just wanted to share that I was so sad about Strawberry Slush going away and I thought I'd never get over it.  Watermelon Wonder is my new bff!!

A masculine ice cream cone

I warned you that I would have a few ice cream cards coming up!  This is my male version of the last one I posted.  It's for a high school freshman so I didn't want any frills.

As I mentioned, this Stampin' Up! set called Sprinkles of Life is so much fun!  You can make cupcakes, clouds, ice cream, etc.  I started on ice cream cones and had so much fun that I kept going.

In case you didn't read my previous post, this set is awesome but even more so because Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House for each set purchased!

Ice Creams everywhere...

I have a big list of birthday cards I need for July and August, so I decided to break out the Sprinkles with Life set.  I think this one will be for my granddaughter who is turning five.  I still can't believe that!!   I am in love with the Sprinkles of Life set!  When combined with the tree punch, it can be used for so many things!  Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House for each purchase. What a great cause!

Just a warning -- I will probably be posting a few cupcake ICE CREAM cards over the next week or so.  Once I got going, I couldn't stop! ( I just noticed that I kept referring to the ice creams as cupcakes!  Must have had a bad day! LOL)

Can I just confess to a little ooopsie?  I thought Island Indigo was in the Cherry on Top dsp, not Bermuda Bay.  I used the wrong cs, but I think it works okay.  Let me know what you think!

PPA 256

This cute sketch was an easy one.  I've been loving my banner triple punch so I was happy to use it again! Even though my banners were thinner than the punch grooves (1, 1 1/2 and 2 inch), it worked just fine.  I just flipped it upside down and made sure the strip of paper was even on both sides.  I also got the chance to use a bunch of new items which always makes me happy!  Tell me what your favorite new item is.  I know it's hard to choose.

Alternative Paper Pumpkin

I just got my June Paper Pumpkin in the mail today and love it!  The stamp set is super cute!  I didn't make the kit as directed yet.  I sat down and came up with this one so I wouldn't spoil it for those who haven't received theirs. I won't tell you what was part of the Paper Pumpkin except the Bermuda Bay base.  I even made an envelope to match.

This is a get well/lift type of card for a 12 year old girl.  When I finished, I thought it seemed a little old, but I am curious to see what you think.

If you are interested in purchasing a cute monthly kit, just click here.  There are many options available:  on a monthly basis (you can skip or cancel any time before the 10th of the month); or you can prepay for 1, 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions.  The prepaid subscriptions can be added to an order.  Click here:
