Color Throwdown#734 - NBUS#48

  Welcome! - Yep, it's been awhile since I've posted here on the old stamping blog.  I've been in a bit of a stamping slump lately and just haven't felt much like creating anything.

This week however I really liked the Color Throwdown colors so I got inspired and whipped out a card for the challenge.  Here are the colors: Green, Cream and Brown.
 Grab our badge to display on your blog.

Here is the card I created for the challenge:  COLOR THROWDOWN #734

For this card I used the images from January (KOTM) Kit of the Month from Unity Stamps.  The leaf/plant circles were stamped with Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut out with SU Stylish Circle dies.  Then I mounted them on a punched circle of Early Espresso card stock.

The card base is Garden green, layered with Early Espresso & Very Vanilla cs. - I added a strip of old SU designer paper (long retired) and a punched border (Martha Stewart) of Early Espresso.  The sentiment is from another Unity KOTM set. I stamped it with Early Espresso ink & punched it out with a stylish die from SU and edged the border with the garden green ink.  The sentiment was mounted with foam tape & I added some light brown sequins to complete the card.

I also received a birthday card for my upcoming birthday in the mail that just happened to have the colors for the challenge so I'm just sharing that because it was so cute.  Thanks to Candy Gray for sending it to me.

Freshly Made Sketches #571

Hello. - Joining in on FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #571


Here is my card:

 I received some Stamp Kits from a friend and decided to use one of them for this card. - The stamps are from,  Stamps of Life and this was the August 2022 Kit - Sew Happy.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the Stitched heart was stamped with SU Baja Blue (retired).

I also used some light blue pearls for embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by.

Unity - Mushroom Card

 Welcome! - Yes,  I'm really posting a card here.  I know it's been ages since I've posted. - The holidays were a busy time and while I stamped I didn't get many posts done of the cards I made.  - Those will come later.

I ended up getting pretty sick in late November with Bronchitis and it took awhile to get over it.  

Thought things were going well this year and wouldn't you know it,  I came down with Covid. - Just a mild case, which I am very thankful for that. - Still it's left me with little energy so my time for stamping has been limited. 

Anyway I joined the Unity Kit of the Month club again and finally made a card with stamps from the December 2022 Kit.

Here is the card that I made:

I kept this one pretty, CAS (Clean and simple) more or less.

Card Base - Basic Black, Layered with Pumpkin Pie.  I added the stamped mushroom piece then a piece of printed mushroom designer paper and tied some twine around it.

The sentiment and mushrooms were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  - I used SU Stylish Circle Dies and some black gems to complete the card. - The sentiment was popped up with foam tape.

Hoping to do a little stamping this week. 
I'll be starting to post a few of the Christmas cards I made for 2022 in the coming days as well.

Thanks for popping by.
