In Stamping Mode

Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #41

Wow, the past couple days, I really felt like I was losing my mojo! Sometimes, venturing beyond the realm of Stampin' Up! only supplies is just what you need to get it back...at least for me! I've been wanting to participate in Taylor's latest cupcake challenge and this awesome sketch was just what I needed!


Here's what I came up with.


I rotated the layout on it's side so that you could see a more solid background behind the punched snowflakes. Now this card was FUN! You see, I have been slowly making little on-the-fly purchases of papercrafting goodies that catch my eye. The first was this stamp set from Hero Arts. I have no clue the name of it, but I just fell in love with the cute little images. It has the most adorable frog...I may have to make something with him tomorrow. :) The second purchase was these new border punch thingies from Tonic. What a neat concept! I wrestled with it for a good half hour though...anti-fun! Either way, I am really pleased with the outcome. :) Of course, I didn't venture too far from my beloved Stampin' Up supplies. All the cardstock, inks, and ribbon are SU...albeit retired. These were all the In Colors from 2 years ago! Remember that designer paper? I think it was called Christmas Thyme or something. I bought GOBS of it! haha! Ok, signing off for the night. It's almost 3 AM and my son just quietly walked in to ask for more milk and nearly scared me right out of my skin.

Thanks for getting "in stamping mode!"

ha ha - what a cute deer card! I remember that dp, I used a lot of it for the pinecone ornaments! I have to admit we are opposites when it comes to the mojo, lately I have a lack of it JUST when I HAVE to use my SU! stamps (stamp club) otherwise I have SO much fun with other stamp company's stamps! glad you are havign fun venturing out
