This card took only 2 minutes. One single stamp (from the Bliss stamp set which you can get for free with a $60 order) and tie your piece of ribbon in a knot. Adhere it with glue dots or I find Sticky Strip does the trick in this case. There you have it quick, cute and simple in 2 minutes.
So glad you stopped by for my Simple Saturday. Have a great day!

I think I found my mojo with this one. I was very please how it turned out. First off I used Card Patterns Sketch # 107. Great sketch! I started with the swirl image from Elements Of Style and them embossed it with the Square Lattice Folder.
The next layer has the Double Stitched Ribbon Punch peaking out the sides with Basic Black 5/8" Satin Ribbon ruffled in the middle and then White Organza Ribbon over top.
For the focal point I used this image from Notably Ornate. I stamped it on Black c/s and embossed it in white. Then I cut it out and cut out the inside too. I stamped my sentiment from All Holidays on Whisper White c/s and mounted it underneath the black on dimensionals. The final touch is a double bow in the White Organza Ribbon, held together with an Antique Brad. (I go through these like candy!)
Hope you've been inspired. I sure was, and if you need more inspiration, please check out the gorgeous creations by the Stampin' Celebration design team here.

I got caught off guard with this one. I have to say I was stumped. Well, lucky for me I had these Pixie Stix starring me in the face on my desk. I figured why not make a kids card and see how I could incorporate them. I struggled a bit finding current c/s to match but managed to make some dsp from the Brights Collection work. In order to get some green in there I took my Hemp Twine and coloured with a Stampin' Write Marker.
Of course the funnest part of the card is the Game Spinner Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini.
Hope you can play along. Check out the cards from the rest of the design team here.

The card uses Easter Blossoms Stamp Set, The Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric from the Occasions Mini. Check it out here.
Other products I used on these cards are:

I used another piece of Vanilla Hodgepodge to host my sentiment from Clearly For You. So often I forget about things like the hodgepodge but when I remember them I love the way they look on my projects.

The egg is so pretty just the way it was but you can imagine how much prettier it is with all the sparkle. The sentiment is from Something To Celebrate, the hostess level 2 set in the Occasions Mini.
For my second card I used Colour Throwdown #132 and Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #59. The egg image is from the set Easter Blossoms. Once again I embossed the eggs with Clear Emboss and this time I sponged them with Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue and then filled in the rest with Daffodil Delight. The ribbons are 3/8" Bashful Blue Taffeta and 1/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta. I added some fabric from Springtime Vintage for a bit of design. Once again I used the same sentiment as the card above.
It was fun to play with some pastels today. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a great day.

The second card uses dsp from the pack called Sweet Stitches in the Occasions Mini.
Lastly, this dsp is called Elegant Soiree. I dressed up the paper with some Basic Pearls. The sentiment is from Elements Of Style.
Have a great weekend!

Recognize the fabric on these two?!?
I was starting to run out of ideas and things to fill a jar with so I called it quits here. But after making these I checked my emails and discovered the deadline has been extended. Maybe we'll come up with some more ideas over the weekend.
Got any ideas???

Don't those cupcakes look yummy??? My mouth was watering. Maybe I was just a little too hungry at the moment I made this card cause I didn't make just one cupcake, not even just 2, I needed 5! I used Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #107 to host these yummy cupcakes.
I used the sentiment from All Holidays because despite the fact that this is technically a St. Patrick's Day card, I don't know who I would send it to. This way I can send this yummy green and brown cupcake card to a friend who needs a little caring!
Hope you find a reason to make a card today. Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's creations.

I saw a card similar to this last St. Patrick's Day and have been waiting a year to try it out. Shaped cards are so much fun and the shape is half the detail so I tried not to overdo it.The hearts for the clover are the Heart To Heart Punch and the Small Heart Punch. The faux ribbon is cardstock embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder and then pierced with a Designer Flower Brad. My sentiment is from So Happy For You once again. I seem to be using this set alot. I guess that is because it's so versatile and you don't have to have it stamped perfectly straight in order for it to look good. Which makes it so easy to use!
Make sure you check out the rest of the work from the design team and have fun stamping.

I used Pals Paper Arts Colour Challenge #83 and Card Patterns #105 for the sketch. I saw a card that Carrie Gaskin made with the happy birthday hanging off the h and b and thought that looked really neat. You can see I incorporated the wood theme a little with the wood grain. Now after I finished the card I had a really good laugh because every good carperter's daughter and wife of a mechanic knows that wrenches are for mechanics and not carpenters!!! lol! Now you know why I wanted that set. It has a hammer! We'll just have to pretend for now.I think I made up for it though with this next card.
We had a Backyardigans theme birthday last week with my daughter and Tyron, one of the characters, is a moose. My dad is also a hunter of deer, moose, elk...! Perfect! Let's make a moose card my daughter and I decided.
So glad you stopped by. Have a great day!
