Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!  Do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in the day.....all week!?!?!  I have definitely felt that way this week.  There were so many things that I've wanted to accomplish and I am sad to say that my to-do list is not to-done. 

Anyway, I was able to spend a very small amount of time crafting this week to create my DT card for this week's challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday.  This week we are challenging you to use this photo as inspiration.
What is it about this picture that inspires you?  Is it the peach, pink and purply colors?  Is it the butterfly?  Is it the tea pot?  The fabulous rose?

I was inspired by both the colors and that fabulous rose!  I thought it was a perfect opportunity to create a ribbon rose for my card! I began with a deep plum cardstock (CM) and gorgeous patterned paper from My Mind's Eye.  I used my Spellbinders scallop die for the background of my ribbon rose.  A stamp set from Martha came in handy for the leaves which I stamped then cut out.  The sentiment is a rub-on from Kaiser. I was really happy with the way this turned out and am looking forward to using this patterned paper and ribbon rose again on a page layout (if I get some crafty time in!).

Regina has an Autumn Leaves stamp set up for grabs for the winner of this week's challenge.  So, get inspired and CREATE!  We'd love to see how the photo inspires you so hop on over and join us this week at SSDS!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I have really enjoyed the past week ~ it's Spring Break here for us!  I didn't get at much crafting done as I thought I might but I did get to spend oodles of fun times with my DD, and I even got a little spring cleaning done (keyword ~ little)! 

We just loved to see all the participation last week with our "Spring Has Sprung" challenge!  Over 100 entries of beautiful spring goodness!  We do hope that you will join us again this week.  This week's challenge at SSDS is to use numbers, any way any how!

I decided to try this tri-fold card that I saw a video for on Youtube from SCS.  It was super easy and I can definitely tell you that I will be making many more of these!

I started with the polka dot paper that was in my stash....I have no idea where it came's pretty old.  I used Royal Blue cardstock (CM) for the base and square scallop.  The sentiment and cupcake stamp are both $1 stamps from Micheal's.  I colored the cupcake with copics and added a tag for the number.  I used a CM sticker for the number and popped it up with dimensionals and attached it to the card with a brad.  I love the way it turned out....cute and simple...perfect for a child's birthday.  The inside has a place to put a little note, some money or a gift card. 

We do love looking at all of your wonderful creations, so be sure to join us this week at SSDS!

Thanks for stopping by!

Returning DT Members

This week we've got a sketch to share with you.  I don't know about you but I find sketch challenges to be the easiest ones!  And an easy idea makes for more cards in my box when I need 'em!  Here's the sketch:

Pretty easy right?!?!  Here's what I was able to come up with!
I used scraps leftover from an 8X8 layout with the same color combo.  Easy peasy!  We do hope you will join us this week at SSDS!  Have a great week!
