Lots of Stamping Today!

I tell ya, I've been in my stamp room for three hours solid. When I stood up to come out to photograph my cards, I could barely walk. But I'm a happy camper. I have really missed it while away, so I'm cathing up now!

FS22 - CharmWarm

This SCS challenge was two weeks ago and I can't believe I missed it. Charmaine, of Oodabug Alley, is one of my absolute favourite stampers and I love her style. So, late or not, here is my card in honour of Charmaine. I got to use my new cardstock and stamps from the Winter Catty and I love them. Here is the card I chose to CASE. Here's to you, Charmaine, and thanks for all the inspiration I receive just reading your blog.

Cardstock: Bazzill Bling, Purely Pomagranate, Soft Sky, Kraft
Patterned Paper: Shabby Princess
Stamps: Peaceful Wishes, All About Christmas (jumbo wheel)
Ink: Purely Pomagranate, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: CB Snowflake embossing folder, Grosgrain ribbon, Faux stitching, Paper piercing

Reach for the Stars, Card Recipe #2

I found this challenge at Stampin' When I Can (is there any other place with such good info?). It's for Reach for the Stars' DivineMissM. The card is approx. 5" x 5" and uses Bazzill Bling. It's actually a left over piece from the previous card (dontcha' just love being able to use an entire piece of cardstock with no waste?). Again, got to use my new stamps and colours on this piece, too! It's a very simple, but elegant design and I love doing it. The inside has a stamped sentiment. Thanks for the Challenge.

Cardstock: Bazzill Bling, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Peacful Wishes
Ink: Purely Pomagranate
Accessories: brads

Ribbons and Ink Weekly Challenge #13

Well, I did this card, also found through Stampin' When I Can, but I don't think it will be acceptable because I goofed up. It clearly states on the Ribbons and Ink blog to use one of the colour combinations set out by Heather for the challenges. I went merrily on my way cutting, pasting, stamping and colouring and when it was all finished, then I realized my goof-up. But you know what, I'm okay with that. It was so much fun using this set that I'm happy anyway! So, Heather, check it out, but if I can't be entered in the draw, well, okay. Thanks for the challenge.

Cardstock: Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Silly SeaLife, Fishy (small wheel), Very Punny (sentiment)
Ink: Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Versafine Black
Accessories: MM's Funky Fibres, Prismacolor Markers

Well, that's it for today, folks. I must get on with my day and get some errands completed and the mail picked up. Thanks for stopping by. See you next time!

Your card (which is really cute!!) is absolutely eligible. I just said you had to use SU! colors and gave several sources for color combos :) My original challenges had that you had to use specific ones but I gave that up ;-) I really like your card and the layout works great with the octopus. It is a great color combo too, very light and summery. Thanks for playing!
