This is a new set for me, Big Bold Birthday. I won this set as part of a team competition last fall. I finally inked it up and had some fun. The scallop with the hodgepodge hardware tied to the ribbon is inspired by Beate. She has this on quite a few of her beautiful cards!
Paper: certainly celery, purely pomegranate, so saffron and Cutie Pie DP
Ink: certainly celery, purely pomegranate, so saffron, bashful blue
Accessories: certainly celery ribbon, Hodge Podge hardware, paper piercer, scallop punch, circles punches, ticket corner punch, brads, stickles

I completely cased this card because I fell in love with this one HERE. I changed it up a little but I love the cuttlebug background that goes with the buoys on the ship and the waves of water that I made with scallop scissors. I added the puppies from Loads of Love accessories since I thought they looked like a group of puppy friends. I colored the boat with a blender pen and ink from the lids of the stamp pads. I don't have a Sahara Sand ink pad so I used a complimentary color from CTMH. I hope you like it!
Stamps: Boatloads of Love, Loads of Love accessories.
Paper: Sahara Sand, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi and whisper white.
Ink: basic black.
Accessories: Word window punch, silver brads, cuttlebug, scallop scissors, blender pen and ink for the lids of the wasabi, blue bayou, and CTMH desert sand ink pads. Creamy Caramel & Chocolate chip markers for the pups and anchor. Crystal Effects for the boat windows. dimensionals for the puffs of smoke.

I made a few of these this past week. This one was made with Cutie pie paper and a Stampin' Up! Glue stick. I printed the calenders from my computer and trimmed them. You can find the template for the calendars HERE. I attached jumbo eyelets and tied them with wild wasabi stitched ribbon. embellishments are rhinestone brads and the tab punch with daily notes from the office accoutrement set. These are so easy to make!

This was my 1st attempt at Mary Jo's sketch challenge from the other day. I saw this scrap on the floor of Cutie pie paper and just had to use it. The heart is colored with pomegranate ink with a blender pen...and then I colored it a 2nd time with the sakura star dust pen. its very sparkly and matches the cutie pie paper exactly-- even though the picture doesn't show it. the mouse is water colored for his face, but the rest is colored with markers. He is too cute!!!
Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Ink: black, purely pomegranate
Paper: Cutie Pie, bashful blue, so saffron, purely pomegranate
Other: pomegranate stitched ribbon, sakura stardust pen, circle punch.
So I could not quickly figure out random.org. Not sure why- but it was too hard for me. So I asked my son to pick a number between 1 and 38- and he picked #13
Charna- You are the winner of the Creative License simply Scrappin kit!!!!
My resolution is going to be making more cards on my own and not waiting for a class to come around. even though i love the classes that you offer!! And also to finish up my son's scrapbook pages that I have left unfinished.CharnaCharnascarpati@hotmail.com

This was the birthday card I made for my Dad. His birthday is New Year's Eve, but we celebrate it on New Year's Day. I think I did OK with making it masculine and I love the chipboard star. Its cover with night of navy craft ink. I punched a hole with the crop-a-dile and tied the cranberry ribbon on. This is part of my new year's resolution: to use chipboard ( I have tons of it!)
Stamps: Its your birthday
Ink: night of navy craft ink, old olive
Paper: night of navy, old olive, so saffron and unknown stripe paper
Other: crop-a-dile, scrap ribbon, marvy mega circle punch and chipboard.

I love the simplicity of this card! Easy!!!
Recipe: all supplies are Stampin' Up! Whisper White and Black cardstock, rub-ons and black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon!
Blog candy update: I have been enjoying all your resolutions- I think my list has been added to! I will keep the blog candy up until Sunday January 6th at midnight. Monday I will announce the winner! Good luck and keep the resolutions coming. They are great.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I made this card for Mary Jo Albright's sketch challenge on her blog Beauty Lies Within. You can see her sketch HERE. By participating in her sketch, I am entered to win her blog candy. What fun- but even better...check out her trick with the scallop punch. She punches the scallop twice to give the scallop points. She made a very cool medallion using this trick.
Now for My Blog Candy....
WOW. I passed 50,000 hits and then some! I am so thankful for all the nice ladies I have met through my blog from all over the country. I had no idea blogging would be so fun! So for the very 1st Time I am giving a away some blog candy!
Please leave me a comment (on this post) for what your New Year's "stamping" resolution is going to be. I have 3 !!
- Stop hoarding all my supplies like hodgepodge hardware and items from the Pretties kit
- Use designer paper "in the moment" not after its retired
- Learn to use chipboard and the Bind it All so they are not neglected in my stamp room
So what is the candy? It is a new Stampin' Up Creative License Simply Scrapping Kit from the Level one hostess selections from the Fall Winter catalog. The colors in this kit coordinate great with the new Spring Summer Crew Classics Collection. There are lots of fun projects over on splitcoast using this kit as well! Good Luck!
