CMCC#4 - Grandson's Valentine's Day Card

I had made a Valentine's Day card for my youngest grandson and I my husband said it had to go!  It was a giraffe and he thought it should be heavy equipment!   Stampin UP to the rescue with "I Dig You" stamp set.

I used the colors from the ColourMe challenge (Pool Party, Perfect Pumpkin, Gumball Green and Blushing Bride) and created a scene worthy of Jack!

Happy Valentines Day!

I have a Grandson that lives and breathes trains, so I created this Valentine for him using Stampin Up products.  
The card stock for the train cars is More Mustard, Marine Mist, Real Red, and I used Basic Black and Smoky Gray for the wheels.   The train track is Early Expresso card stock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. The strip is cut in half.   Lastly, the clouds and the 'meadow' are The Designer Series paper.

CMCC#4 - Sympathy Card

The colors for this week's Color Me challenge had me stumped for a few days!  The lovely creations by the design team were inspiring, so I started browsing through my Stampin Up collection to see what caught my eye.  I love simplicity in life........and this stamp set Simply Sketched was just what I needed.

I used Gumball Green, Perfectly Pumpkin and Pool Party for the stamped image, Blushing Bride for the sentiment and Pool party for the decorative dots.   It needed something more, so I finely cut card stock in all of the colors to make 'reeds' along the left edge of the card, fastening with a bit of Stamp Up Multi Liquid Glue.

Thank you for the challenge Design Team!
