One more........

Okay, I promise this is the last one in this color scheme (for now) and with polka dots. I was inspired by the Embellish blog and just could not stop! :)
I love how quick these simple layouts come together and right now, I don't have tons of stamping time, so I feel more productive when I stick to this style.
The challenge is still open until Oct. 1st if you want to submit something!
This card uses the PTI designer paper - Autumn Abundance and their Fall Elegance stamp set.
Some of the leaves are stamped on the card base and the others are stamped, cut, and mounted with glue dots for some dimension.
Lastly, I added some Kaiser pearls.......

Thanks for stopping by!!

Embrace

I loved the color combo from the Embellish magazine challenge so much, I put these colors together again on a couple more cards.....

Here is one I did last night, just a quick CAS card using my Unity September KOTM. The sentiment is from Bevy of Butterflies.

I'll share the other card tomorrow.......

Something for Sunday...

I don't think I've posted this one yet. I did this a little while back, and stumble on it when finally getting the chance to upload photos to Splitcoast.
For this card I used my Papertrey Ink - Life set for the image and the PTI - Mega Mixed Messages for the sentiment.
The card base is Kraft and I used SU! Soft Sky and Soft Suede paper and ink.
The layout is quite simple - I like these type of cards.
I was on a kick with this color combo for a while. Seems as though I always find my way back to that plain old Kraft paper. Which reminds me, I need to order more..........
That's all for tonight, off to do some homework!!

Polka Dot Challenge

There's a challenge up over at i Embellish. It's all about the color combo above and polka dots.
This color combo shouts Fall doesn't it??
That's why I dug out my big Autumn Pumpkin stamp from Unity (big shock there huh?).
The patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink - Autumn Abundance.
The sentiment - PTI - Fall Elegance.
My paper is a mix of PTI & SU!
Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Scarlet Jewel, and Rustic Cream.
Fall is in the air............the evenings are getting crispy!!

Friday Flair.........I think......

Not sure if I made it in the 50 blog cutoff for Unity's Friday Flair, but I'm posting anyways.....
I dug out my Giggle Grove again for this one. I stamped three of the trees onto some Black Market DP I have sitting around. The quote is from June's Kit of the Month.
The card is on Dark Chocolate from PTI, with Rustic Cream & Pure Poppy, Taken with Teal (SU!), and some Kraft.
There were just 17 new releases at Unity on Thursday -
Check them out!! Great Stuff!!

Wednesday Challenge

Here we are at Wednesday already!! Some of us Unity fans have a challenge group that took a little hiatus over the summer, but now we're back!!
This week Lisa challenged us to a Christmas card with reds, blues, pinks, and Kraft. I must admit - Christmas cards are tough for me right now - I'm just not ready yet!!
Anyway, here is what I came up with - not sure if I like it yet though.
I used my Unity Snow-one like you set. The sentiment is from by Bitty Christmas Tag set. All the colors of the challenge are in the patterned paper that I used - Memory Box. I added some pink and blue with a red bow and rhinestones.
Happy Hump Day!! Thanks for stopping by!!

My 1st Submission.....

Well.......here it is. My very first publication submission. What is the publication???? Check it out HERE..........Embellish Magazine. Ashley and her husband have created this fresh new online magazine and are taking submissions for their very first issue. To make it even better, they are giving away an iPod Touch to the submission that makes it onto the cover!! Deadline for submitting is September 27th!!

This is my entry - It's an anniversary card I put together using the colors in the publication call. I absolutely love this color combo too!! I might just have to make another card or project to submit. Who knows...........maybe I'll get lucky!!

Even if you don't enter a project, be sure to check out Embellish!!



I used my Unity Love Grows set and my Unity Distressed Dots too. Twine was also a requirement in the submission and I used in around the card and in the button.

Wish me luck on getting published and check back for more.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello, hello, hello

Dug out the Giggle Grove set yet again and came up with this CAS card.
If you don't have this set yet, it is a must have........check it out HERE! It comes in a small set (which is the one I used here) or you can purchase the trees individually in bigger sizes too!
The card base is Kraft and I used some My Minds Eye stash I had with some SU! Certainly Celery. The buttons are laced with twine and that is all from Papertrey Ink.
The teeny, tiny sentiment is from Papertry Ink Mixed Messages set (also comes in 2 sizes and both are worth every penny). It is hard to see, but I stamped that 3 times across the dots under the image.
Pretty quick and simple.............thanks for looking!!

Hearts-a-flutter

Just a really quick post tonight to share a card I put together last week.
Quite simple actually. I used my Unity KOTM August and this cute heart image from it. I also used my Unity background stamp Worn Grid.
There is also some really pretty green glitter in the center of the heart. This card did not photograph well and looks much cuter in real life!!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Labor Day Weekend!!

Big SALE!! & a card too.........

Big Sale!!!!!!

That's right:
20% off everything in the catalog!!!!
This includes the Holiday Mini Catalog (to the right).
Just email me your order: doodersmom9@gmail.com

Keep readin'!!



I put this card together using the cute little flower sprig from the August KOTM from Unity again. I love these simple silhouette flowers. They are so versatile.
The ribbon and sentiment are SU! and the pearls are Kaiser.
I used Papertrey Ink's Rustic White and SU! Kraft and Soft Suede papers.
Added some gold glitter to the centers of some of the flowers.

If you have not heard yet, SU! is placing some major restrictions to those of us who use various stamping products in addition to our SU! product. I have a big problem with this. The stamping community is full of wonderful people with tons of talent and it should be shared by all. My blog will never be limited to just SU! and I will not remove any links that lead you to my talented friends..........so there!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!

Happy Day........

Here is a CAS (cute & simple) card I put together tonight.
I had stamped & colored these flower in pots quite a while ago, and they were sitting there staring at me, needing a place to go.
I punched them out, matted them on Certainly Celery, and again on a white scalloped square. Designer paper is SU! Sentiment is from Unity KOTM again. The card base is Kraft.
That's it...........I like the quick and easy cards, especially since I'm starting my last semester and school work will be infringing on my stamping time.
Thanks for looking................
