RC August Color Challenge...

I have a quick and simple card for this month's color challenge over at Reverse Confetti.  The colors? Red, Blue and Gold.  Fun, right?


I stamped So Striped along the bottom in navy blue.  I added in the polka dot apple, from Class Act,  up on foam tape, after laying down a strip of gold card stock.  I stamped the sentiment in gold as well.  Easy peasy and perfect timing for school!  :)


Here are the products I used...

Stop over to the Reverse Confetti blog for more details on how you can play along this month!  

Have a great day!

Time after time Challenge...

Welcome to the Time after time challenge!  Our challenge was to remake an old project from the past.  I dug deep....way back!

I have officially been blogging for 7 years and 2 months.  I know that because I went back and dug up this little gem....

I am a tad embarrassed to share this, mostly because its quite bad.  And also?  Because it says "oh pig poop".  Wow.  This was a farm fresh card gone wrong.  I must have loved it at the time tho....oy.

So today, I am remaking the farm fresh card gone wrong, using some newer stamps in my current CAS style....


I don't own this set and dies just yet....it's on its way to me now, but I was SO lucky to meet Danielle this last week and stamp with her.  She was so nice to let me borrow her On the Farm set, to recreate this card.

I stamped the checkered border in Pure Poppy to make the background piece.  Then I stamped the sun rays in Harvest Gold with a top edge in Summer Sunrise.  I stamped the lower panel in Simply Chartreuse and then cut out around the hills, so I could pop this up for some dimension.  I die cut and stamped the cow and then added in a sentiment.  


 I think I like this round better!  :)  My style has most definitely changed over the years and it really is fun to go back and see where I started.  Even if the card does say pig poop on it.  Ha!

I can't wait to see what the other girls remake today!  Here are their blog links so you can check them out too!

Are you all ready for Stamp-A-Faire?  I am really excited for Saturday and can't wait to join in the challenges for the day!  The Design Team is here today to share the exclusive SAF sat with you...Filly with Joy.  Here is my card...


First, I dry embossed a striped panel for the top of the card base.  I stamped and hand cut the flowers and leaves and layered them up, curling the leaves at the end for a little dimension.  The sentiment is stamped in black and also in Delicata Gold.  I completed the card by adding in some tiny black dots.
