My Last Post of 2008


I'm back in the swing of things a bit. I decided to start off my "week" ( yes I know it's Wednesday) with a Kwerner Color Inspiration. I'm having a hard time getting the Mojo going. I think Christmas did me in this year. So today is just a quick post. I have several things to share but will probably not post too much more this week. I am trying to just enjoy my family and get caught up on some things. My craft room looks like a paper bomb went off. But I promise to do better next week. So here is what I have to share today. Several things really.

First off is my color inspiration card.

This card is really very simple. I had some Christina Cole 3D stickers by Provo Craft that I used for the flowers. They have their own dimensional on the back so they pop up a bit. This is just adhered to a piece of Whisper White that I stamped using a dollar spot clear stamp. All this is mounted on an Old Olive layer and tied with some twill ribbon that I got at Joann's. This is adhered to a folded Pink Pirouette 4"x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock. The pink is stamped with the Just Jeans background stamp in the same color ink. I did not have pretty in pink so that's the reason for the substitution. I then doodled along the edges using a Rose Red marker. A layer of Rose Red completes the card. This particular card is for my sister who just got a new job. I'm so happy for her. She doesn't usually read my blog very consistently so I hope she doesn't see this before it gets to her:)

Here is my WIGW card. While I made this over a week ago it still applies as a Work It Girl because I banged out 20 of these babies in about 2 hours. The picture really isn't that great. Still trying to figure out the best place/time to get my pics. This is a relatively easy card to mass produce. It could also be changed quite easily to something other than a Christmas card. I used Mellow Moss as the base and stamped with one of my favs....Weathered BG in Mellow Moss ink. I then inked up my tree (Lovely as a Tree...may it never retire) with Mellow Moss and went in with a Choc Chip marker to highlight the trunk area. I then dabbed on Stickles to several branches. It's hard to see in the picture. This is layered on Choc Chip. I stamped Christmas Blessings from Star Studded Season in Mellow Moss and punched out with my Large Oval Punch. Sponged the edges with Choc chip ink and popped up with dimensionals. So easy.
That's all for me today. Hope you all have a safe New Year's Eve. We are staying home. My husband works part of the day and so we are just going to hang out and play games/watch movies. Oh and we may "rock out" to our new Guitar Hero World Tour that Santa brought. I love the drums....they are sooo hard though. So hope you all have a "rockin" New Year:)

Nikki,

I enjoy your Blog. I love how talented and creative you are with your cards. I hope that's from my genes.

I love the card you made for our Shannon. I made her one too, but not as beautiful as yours.

Love you,
Momma
