It is vintage valentine time! Using Pretty in Pink Night and Day DSP plus the Holiday Best set from Stampin Up! I created a vintage look Valentine for someone special! The heart punch created a little dimention and I love my cordoroy buttons! Happy Mojo Monday!

Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge

It didn't take long to get the stampin "itch" back after a brief time away from my studio for Christmas celebrations! But Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and while I am waiting for some new Valentine's Day supplies to arrive soon, I wanted to get started on my cards! I LOVE to send out Valentine's Day cards. So the "Love You Much" stamp set created the images for this Pirouette Pink and Close to Cocoa color scheme. I did a little background stamping with "Filigree" and some retired DSP created a little color variation.
Adding some Dazzling Diamond glitter on the scroll background gives this card a little "wow" in person. And a rhinestone brad and bow were a must! Happy New Year of stampin joy! Thanks PPA for another great challenge!

Mojo Monday #118

I had to do one more Mojo Monday before Christmas and this one looked easy and fun! I havn't used Mr. Twigster since last year and ...boo hoo, he is retired! But I am making some cards to send this winter to brighten someone's winter day! I think I have 3 or 4 now. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year of stampin for the joy of creativity!

Winter Wonderland and PPA #21 Artist Pick!

It took me awhile, but as I was putting away some stamps, I came across my Christmas Punch set, and there was the snowman punch! All I could see was 3 little snowmen faces peeking in a window on a snowy winter day! It took a little retired DSP, but that's ok, cuz this happy little card just came together easily! So Pals Paper Arts, there you go and Our Creative Corner too! Since we just had our first snow and snowmen popped up all over our neighborhood, I had some relevant inspiration! Bermuda Bay, Only Orange, and Baja Breeze cardstock created the layers and I stamped the little guys on Whisper White...of course. The sentiment is from retired set, Happy Winter.

About being named Artist Pick#21...I am so surprized and yet delighted! This was a Christmas treat. Thank you Pals Paper Arts Designers. You inspire me. And all the other amazing stampers give me so much joy with their creativity! Thank you for even taking the time to visit Stamp for Joy. I pray a blessed Christmas to you and yours!

For some reason my comment button did not post here. Email me at tparrott@go-concepts.com for your thoughts about this card!!!

Mojo Monday #117

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so for this Mojo sketch I brought out this Simply Scrapping kit and pulled off the elements I wanted and stuck them on Kiwi Kiss textured cardstock! A little ribbon and "voila" an easy Valentine.

Paper Dolls Birthday

I have two sweet little nieces turning 3 within a week of each other so I made them each a little birthday card using the Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge. I had never used it before but I think she turned out so cute! I used my dotted swiss embossing folder for the background on Taken With Teal and mounted on Blush Blossom cardstock. The sentiment was stamped using retired Just B. Three is such a sweet age! Happy Birthday Abrianna and Sydney!

Pals Paper Arts Christmas Vintage Challenge

I love vintage! Just wish I had more Christmas vintage stamps! But with a little creating I combined a retired background stamp and the Hostess I Holiday Best and the ever so vintage Winter Poste to set the mood. Old Olive and Ruby Red were my color combos. I had some fun with the rivets. After I set them I put a rhinestone brad inside. Aren't jewels a bit "vintagey" too?! I don't think you can really tell, but I used a Nestability to cut out the scallop oval and the Old Olive layer is mounted on dimentionals for the raised look. The skaters are stamped on Very Vanilla and mounted on the Red cardstock underneath. I sponged on some Close to Cocoa to vintage it up some more too.
Some ribbon to garnish my card and a scrap of antique crazy quilt for the background completes this PPA challenge!

Mojo Monday Christmas Blessings!

Just a sweet little card to keep me in the true Christmas Spirit! Love this retired stamp set called "Baby Jesus is Born." With a little watercoloring and the snowflakes from "Branch Out" this card was simple to complete. A little button adds to the whimsicle feel and that is it for today! Hope your week is going well and that you have a peaceful heart this Christmas season!
