I had a great time playing on my days off....

Hi everyone!! I finally had a couple days off which gave me some time to PLAY!! I was able to complete a few challenges. The top two cards were for challenges. The above card is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. We were asked to use a punch!! The inspiration for this card came from the cover of Cardmaker Magazine.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Whisper White, Real Red and Gold
Ink : Stampin' Up Real Red Craft
Stamps: Stampin' Up Grateful Greetings
Punch: Martha Stewart border punch
Glitter: Martha Stewart Garnet glitter
Ranger Gold Stickles

The above card is for the 365 Cards blog challenge. There was a card recipe that we had to use. 4.25x5.5 inch card base, 4x4 piece of patterned paper, 2x2 piece of patterned paper, 3 buttons, 1 ribbon, and sentiment.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up Kraft
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up DSP Urban Oasis
Stamps: Stampin' Up For All You Do
Ribbon: Stampin' Up Basic Black 1.5in. Stripped Grograin Ribbon

I was so impressed with the way that this turned out. This stamp set by Stampin' Up has been around for a while. I have had it probably a year. For those of your that followed my blog when I updated it ALOT, I used to make mention that I will not put away a stamp set until it gets used on a card. In the efforts to try to organize and simplify, I had to use this set. I has been sitting here forever. Well....this is what I got. I love it. It is perfect for a co-workers birthday next month.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up Summer Sun, Rose Red, Old Olive
Ink: Stampin' Up Rose Red, Summer Sun, Old Olive and Always Artichoke
Ribbon: Stampin' Up Old Olive 5/8 grograin ribbon
Stamps: Stampin' Up Inspired by Nature & Everyday Expressions (retired)
Dies: Spellbinders (Labels Three) & QuicKutz Maddie Ann Numbers

Hey Wendy I love these cards! You rocked the 365 challenge.....mine really looks horrible. I think I should have put more thought into it....LOL!!! That stamped card for your co-worker is beautiful. She's going to love it.

ps.....yes I have entered a few challenges over at needed some inspiration to scrap and those challenges always get me into the scrap mode. But leaving all those comments isn't an easy thing for me to do, but I will!!
