Project 40 of 365: Bloomin’ Beautiful in Classic Stripes June 29, 2010

So here we are.  Already at the end of my 3 card tribute to the soon retiring Bloomin Beautiful stamp set 😦  This is one of those sets that I was truly surprised about when they announced it was retiring.  I almost wish I would have posted these in the reverse order and ended with the card I liked the best instead of starting with the one I liked best….but this is a cute card too, and best of all it is super simple.  Who wouldn’t smile if they received such a brightly colored card.

This card was inspired by a card from the demo only site by Robin Merriman.

Project 21 of 365: Blue Bride June 9, 2010

Isn’t it funny when you sit down and you have a project in mind, and you work, work, and work on it….Then in the end your project is nothing like the one you started making?  Well, that is exactly what happened here.

While I like this card, I was NOT planning on making a wedding card, and I was NOT planning on running the Frilly Lacey border all the way up the card.  So this is truly one of those projects that revealed itself as it went along…Luckily I am happy with the outcome…but it does seem like something is missing, so if anyone has any suggestions on what this card needs for that “finishing touch” please let me know by leaving a comment below.

This card started from the Mojo Monday 142 challenge, and then I also got the colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 33.  I love combining these two challenges!  They both come out on Monday and it is SOOOOOO much easier to jump in and get a project finished when you already know what colors AND layout you are using.

It is probably a good thing this became a wedding card, as it seems like every week we are getting another wedding invitation, so I will need plenty of wedding cards this year.  Hmmmm, maybe my husband and I should get around to having that Wedding Reception we told everyone we would have when we broke the news that we decided to have a small wedding in Vegas instead of a big wedding at home…

Project 13 0f 365: Anniversary Explosion Box May 30, 2010

13 of 365: Anniversary Explosion Box

Hi All!

The project I am posting today is a belated Anniversary gift for some friends.  When I posted my first blog they had mentioned they liked the Explosion Box Project, and since I had neglected to make them an Anniversary Card, I told them I would make them one if they told me what colors they liked.  Tina said she liked Green and her husband liked Dark Purple, so I hope the colors I used are close enough.  I will soon find out as I will be giving this to them when I head over there in a little while for a pre-Memorial Day cookout!  Yum- Yum…I can’t wait…..Plus I get to give them their gift in front of other people…and maybe, just maybe, some of those people will want one too 🙂

I have been thinking about either holding an Explosion Box class or selling them per request (incorporating colors/themes the people want.)  I am still working out how much is a fair price….So if any of you out there would like me to make an Explosion Box for you, or are interested in hosting a class let me know!!  Email me at betty.ray020@gmail.com.

These boxes really show better when they are filled with pictures and momentos….so click HERE to be taken to the original one I made a couple weeks ago which looks more polished since it is full of pictures and other little things 🙂
