EDIT with second card*****Friday Mashup #123 & Operation Write Home #186

OMGoodness, I am so late posting for the Friday Mashup # 123!  I’m going to post my card now and come back tonight and add all the details:)

Ok, I’m back, all the little ones are in bed and I have a little while before I have to head to bed myself:)  This card is for the Friday Mashup #123.

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
Create a project using “Clear Block Stamping (use your clear block as a stamp).”
Create a project using “Color-blocking.”
Or Mash it Up and create a project using “Clear Block Stamping & Color-blocking.”

Here’s the sketch I used, it’s from Operation Write Home #186:

Half-fold Card1Here’s the second card I made:

Half-fold Card3Here’s the first card with a little sentiment added:

Half-fold Card1aI thought these would be nice for our female military to send home to their husbands or boyfriends.  Operation Write Home doesn’t require sentiments, but I felt they were missing something without at least a small sentiment.  Just my opinion;)

Now, what didn’t I use, you might ask?  I used mostly Stampin’ Up! products, except for my main image from Fred She Said, Fallen Maple Leaf.  Of course, the leaf is the same on both cards, but the Stampin’ Up! colors are totally different.  For my first card, I used my SU acrylic blocks with Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze and More Mustard.  For the second card, I used the new DSP Sweater Weather, which can be found in the new Holiday catalog.  I also used Stampin’ Up! cardstock, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, and Basic Gray. I did use, for the Tangerine Tango,  an embossing folder that was a gift from a friend, not SU:)

Thanks for coming by today….. twice;)  I really appreciate every one of you! 🙂  I’ll be back again soon:)

Merry Monday #70

I’m up late again, but I made two cards:)  The first one will be entered at Merry Monday #70. Here is their sketch for this week:

MM70Both of my cards today will be sent to Operation Write Home.  I’ve already entered their challenge, these are just more cards for their box:)  The first one I think would be good for a male to send to a female, it’s kinda girly;)  My second card is a little more generic, I think anyone could send it to anyone else.

Half-fold Card1This card was made with Stampin’ Up! cardstock So Saffron and Garden Green.  The image and red snowflake paper are both Fred She Said.  The image is called Christmas Rose Coloured Set.

Christmas Rose Coloured Set:
-contains coloured JPGs of Christmas Rose, Christmas Rose & Candles ( with background, and with white
background), 4 ready-to-print sheets & Bonus Christmas Sentiments Set ( has PNG & JPG versions) ( all 300 ppi)

The paper is also from Fred She Said, FSS-Christmas Papers1-2009.  I love these papers and use them all the time! 🙂 Now for my second card:

Half-fold Card2More Fred She Said😉  For this card I used Fred She Said image simply called Blue Jay.  Oh, dear, I can’t remember where I found the paper:(  I know it’s FSS, it might have been a freebie.  I use it all the time, it may be in one of her kits, I’ll look around and If you’re interested let me know:)  Also Tracey is making Cutting Files, check out the store🙂 I did use some Stampin’ Up! cardstock, Garden Green and Soft Suede.

Okay, I’m getting goofy now, it’s off to bed for me!

Thanks for coming by to have a look:)  You all are a quiet bunch, but I’m happy you’re here! 🙂  Of course, there are more cards on the way! 🙂

Friday Mashup #122 & Operation Write Home #185

Oh, dear, another late night for me:(  My husband hates when I stay up late because then I don’t want to get up in the morning;)  Oh well, I’m going to try and finish this quickly:)

For you today, I have two cards!  The first card is for the Friday Mashup Challenge #122.

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with a “Tag (as an embellishment on you rproject or as the project itself ).”
  2. Create a project using the colors “Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Sky, Primrose Petals & Bermuda Bay”.
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project “with a Tag using the color combo above”.

Wow, lots of colors!  I squeezed them all in, lets see how you like it:)

Half-fold Card1I don’t know where this card is going yet, but it’s very colorful:)  Both of my card are all Stampin’ Up! products today.  If you have any questions regarding supplies, feel free to ask:)  Oh, and I did “mash it up”  I have one tiny little tag in Primrose Petals;)

My next card if for Operation Write Home, because our military men and women deserve cards! 🙂  This card is for someone to send home to a loved one.  Here is their sketch for this week:
