Vintage Thanks for PP82

For this card I "case'd" myself : )  I saw the challenge over at The Paper Player's this week and knew I had to do something for it.  I LOVE this colour combination....Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  For a template I copied a card that I did for my monthly class last week.

I had fun with lots of Sale-a-bration product for this card.  First the card I did for the challenge:

I've had this piece of Embossed (with Vintage Wallpaper TEF) Very Vanilla cardstock around since Christmas and finally found a use for it in this card.  It, along with all the other pieces of cardstock and Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB 2012), was sponged with Soft Suede ink to age it a little. 

I really like the little medallion in the "Fresh Vintage" set (SAB 2012).  I stamped in Pool Party and hand cut the medallion and then layered it on top of a Poppy Parade flower from the Triple Layer Blossom Punch.  This little medallion is all tied together with a Vintage brad, Chantilly lace and Calypso Coral organza ribbon (from SAB 2012).

To frame the sentiment I embossed an image from the "Elementary Elegance" set (SAB 2012).  Here's a look at the card I did for my class:

Day 10: That's shiny ;)

So, I got side-tracked off my Twelve Days of Christmas Cards postings.   I got distracted on Friday by taking one kid to the doctor because of an endless cough and a little bout of stomach flu.  No worries, I'd have the weekend to catch up, right?

I was SO excited to have a weekend with "nothing" going on.  No parties, no places to go, no big errands to run.  I had a breakfast date with my son and then my lovely father-in-law arrived.  He not only brought us winter tires and put them on the car (THANK YOU, THANK YOU!), he took the kids away for a few hours!


That's shiny!

Okay, so put aside stamping for a bit...let's go Christmas shopping for the kids and out for lunch.  It was great, we went to our favourite Indian place, then across the street to our favourite toy store and topped it off with a yummy holiday drink before heading home.

I fully planned on capping off my wonderful day by spending the late afternoon and evening stamping and watching a movie …

CAS Christmas

Here it first Christmas card of the year!  I'm really liking Stampin' Up's new Winter Frost Speciality DSP.  I figure that I can use some of it for Christmas cards and whatever is left will be great for winter birthday, thank you and other cards.  Gotta love versatility!

I used the  CAS -Colours and Sketches Challenge #42 sketch for this card.  I really like the simplicity of the clean lines in this sketch. 

Here's what I did with it:

Love, LOVE, LOVE, Island Indigo and Pool Party together!  I'm so happy that Stampin' Up kept those two colours and used them in this DSP.  So great! I used one of my favourite, easy techniques -- "thumping" -- to create the look on the ornament.  The "Ornament Keepsakes" stamp set is still available by the way.  Here is a close up of the ornament:
While you can't see it here, I also stamped it again using the Illuminate ink to give it a bit of a shimmer.  To finish it off I used a little bit of S…

Thanks Grandma!

So here I am again apologizing for my absence from the blogging world.   And yet again I'll say something about "trying to do better"....especially for those of you, my faithful friends, who have expressed that you miss stamping with me and seeing what I'm up to.   I will do my best.

I have been absent because, honestly, I haven't been stamping!   The winter and spring were crazy husband, who is head of Music at his school, was helping to run a kids were busy....I was busy....

Excuses.  I know!

In any case, after months away from stamping I started again this week.  A lot of the stuff I've made, I've already passed along to others before taking a picture.  But I captured today's card before it gets put in the mail.

My daughter and I just spent a lovely day with my mother-in-law while the boys were away doing their thing.  A neighbour of ours was selling a little pink bike and, very generously, "grandma" bought the bik…
