Happy Moments LNS Card

This week's LNS challenge is to make a birthday card.  I think the SAB set, Happy Moments, is a great set to use for this challenge.  I stamped the image 3x's, cut them out, and then colored the images using Pixie Pink, Green Galore and YoYo Yellow markers.  Ran the Green Galore and Pixie Pink cardstock through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  Drew a design on the Whisper White cardstock using the same markers.  Here's the rest of the details:

Stamp Set: Happy Moments
Inks: Pixie Pink, Green Galore, YoYo Yellow, Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, YoYo Yellow
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, Crushed Curry Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Scallop Trim Border SAB Punch, Gold Cording, Green Galore Brad, Mini-Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Scissors

Decor Elements in the Family Room

I purchased this Decor Element set a while ago (it's retired) and again, finally, put this up in my family room today.  I also accented behind the clock to carry over the decor to the wall.

Decor Elements

I finally put the Hostess Level 1 Decor Elements on my 2 canisters that I use for my flour and sugar.  It is very, very easy to apply them and I am glad that I finally put them on!

Medallion Birthday Card

This is a card that I made for this week's LNS Challenge.  Patty Bennett ( came up with the great idea to make a border using the Medallion punch - so I thought I would give it a try!  I stamped the image three times on a strip of Whisper White c/s.  Then I used the SAB Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom.  I ran it through my crimper 4 times to make the paper more pliable.  I then feathered the edges with Chocolate Chip, feathered the edges with a VersaMark inkpad, and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Since the strip is bulky, I attached it to the back of the Whisper White card stock using some sticky tape.

I also used the kissing technique for this card.  I inked up the Medallion stamp with Brocade Blue and inked up the Woodgrain Background stamp with Chocolate Chip, and then "kissed" the stamps together.  That's how I made the lines that you see on the Medallion image that was punched using out the scallop punch.  Here's a list of what I used:

Stamps: Warm Words, Medallion and Woodgrain Background Stamps
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue
Papers: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Designer Label Punch, Scallop Punch, Vanilla Hardware/Brads, Bashful Blue Ribbon, Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Paper Piercing Tool, VersaMark Pad, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Mini-Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Crimper, Sponges
