KW’s Color Inspiration #50

Phew, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything!  I’m still here and alive, just a busy mama as usual! :)

This is Kristina’s color challenge for this week.50I was tempted to add another color, but I was a good girl and followed the rules! ;)


Weird, the ribbon looks a little rust-colored there, but is very red in real life.

Paper – summer sun textured, whisper white, chocolate chip, Good Morning Sunshine dsp

Supplies – real red 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon, corner rounder punch, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, stamping sponge, paper piercing tool, dimensionals

Oopsie, forgot to post this little fella.  It’s kind of a tease, now, since the stamp set is from Sale-a-Bration and no longer available! :)   BUT everything else is!


This was a color combo I wasn’t sure about, but I like how it turned out.  I like simplicity. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

3×3 card class, take 2

These are the final 4 cards that we made at my 3×3 card class (a.k.a. love notes) last weekend.

This bunch covers birthdays (guy, girl, and kid) plus a thank you card.  The other 6 were shown in this post.stamp_princess_1




We had a ton of fun, and I will definitely do a class similar to this again! :)


p.s. I was inspired by so many ideas that I saw various places online, but I was a naughty card-maker and didn’t write any of them down or bookmark the links!  If you see a card that is a CASE of one of yours, please let me know so I can give you credit! :)

my little crafter

My daughter that just turned 3 (Ariana) loves to have crafty time with mom. :)   Yesterday she made a thank-you card for a friend, Paula.  (Who, by the way, has a great Etsy shop — click here.)

Ariana chose the color paper she wanted and I cut/scored it for her.  The rest was all her.  She glued, cut ribbon scraps of her choice, and made a great little mess. :)   Oh wait, I did help her punch out some hearts, too, with a retired punch.  Those punches can be tricky for little hands.p4070013I love to watch her create. :)


KW’s Color Inspiration #48


I don’t usually do these challenges with a particular person in mind, but I thought I’d try it this time.  I like how it turned out, with the exception of the letters.  They looked cute all crooked-y until I assembled the card. :)

I do love these little letters, just not crooked.stamp_princess_birthdayStraight would look better, no? :)   Now I know for next time. ;)   Tee hee.

But I do love this paper, and how handy that it fit with the colors for the challenge this week! :)

Thanks for stopping by!,

This was a very quick card to put together, thanks to the Curly Label Punch Bundle.  Hi, my name is Laura, and I’m a punch-a-holic. :)

I usually don’t write much here … and if you heard the impatience coming from my 7-month-old or the mischievous silence coming from my 3-year-old right now, you’d know why. :) Bye!
