Our Last Challenge!!

Well, it's been a fun three months, but all good things must come to an end!!  The first quarter Design Team for the Latenightstampers was a great group of ladies--we had a blast getting to know one another, and creating with each other.  Thanks to all of them for a memorable quarter!!  So, our last challenge was "Birds of a Feather"-- what can you come up with using a bird in your project?!!  What fun!!  Of course, the owl is the Latenightstampers mascot, so I had to use one!!  I don't have any owl stamps though!  So, I pulled out the So Tweet On Board, and used one of those owls!!  I actually just traced him onto the designer paper, then cut him out!!

Lnsdt#13I used the Oval All Stamp set--coming soon in the Occasions Mini Catalog!!  And the "hi there" is from the Fundamental Phrases set!

Cardstock:  Bordering blue, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Bella Birds Designer Paper

Ink:  Bordering Blue

Misc:  5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, 1" & 3/4" Circle Punches, large, small & scallop oval punches, Scalloped edge punch.

Oh--and I used the sanded background stamp!!

Hope you enjoy the card!!  Now go get to stamping--let's see what you can create using birds!!!

Easter Basket

EasterbasketCan you believe Easter is only two weeks away?!  Have you made your cards and treats yet?  Today make it your goal to at least plan your cards and treats, then contact me to place your orders!!

I made this basket using the #2 Die Box and the Big Shot!  I simply cut off the top flaps of the box, then put sticky strip all the way around it. Using my word window punch and scraps, I punched out all the soft colors--then lined them up!!!  I used the Certainly Celery ribbon from the Sale-a-bration bundle for the handle--it really stands up nicely!!  It's attached using jumbo eyelets!

I've been thinking about doing a tutorial for this basket--what do you think?  Would you like to see one, or is it pretty self-explanatory?  Leave me a comment!!

UDI Divas Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!!!  I'm actually in Phoenix as you read this--Cameron is playing in a baseball tournament!  I'm hoping this scheduling thing works!!  :-) 

Anyhoo--it's Saturday, which means it's time for Sketchy Saturday over at the UDI Blog.  I liked this sketch, but I'm not sure about my card.  I think the main image block needs something, but I can't figure out what!!  Oh well..............

Tkfdivasc23The card base is made with the Black textured cardstock found in the Taste of Textiles collection. (pg. 156, #113991, $9.95)  And, the 'striped' white is also from the same collection.  All five pattterns are beautiful!!

I cut the white cardstock to size, then placed it in the Manhattan Flower embossing folder--you can place it exactly where you want it!  Then, just send it through your Big Shot!  I used sponges to add a little bit of color--Basic Gray and Pretty in Pink.

Other items used:  1 1/4" Pink Pirouette Grosgrain ribbon, 3/8" Black Grosgrain ribbon, and the half pearls from the Pretties Kit.

Only THREE days left of Sale-a-bration!!  Get your orders in now!!  You can order online, or send me an email--I'll get back to you first thing Monday!!!

Sneak Peek!!

HI!!  I was playing with some of my new toys from the upcoming Occassions Mini Catalog--I love this new scallop oval punch!!!!  Layers perfectly with our small and large oval punches!!

Tkfmisc  There is also a NEW stamp set that coordinates with the scallop oval punch!!  Very pretty!!  I stamped the thank you twice--once on white, then again on a scrap of Bashful Blue.  I punched out the white with the large oval punch, and the blue with the new scallop oval punch!  If you look close, (click on picture to make it larger) you can see the little dots on the blue!

The patterned paper is from the Sale-a-bration DSP--Delicate Dots!  Can you believe there's only a week left of Sale-a-bration?!!  Be sure and get your orders in before March 31!!  You can earn one item for every $50 in merchandise!!
