White and Bright

Today when I decided to work on some cards, I thought I would look to some challenges for inspiration. I love Our Daily Bread stamps and use them quite frequently, so I started my day with their challenge which was to make a card using whites. Well since there are so many shades of white, this proved to be a little more difficult than I thought it would be. With that said, here are the materials I used: stamps from ODB Cross of Christ set, paper crimper, cuttlebug embossing folder, white prima flowers, frosted lace stickles, white Bella baubles, and SU ribbon. You should take a look at all the beautiful creations for this challenge, there are some really talented ladies out there.
Now I'm off to work on another card..................
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Kayla's Digi

My project for today is something I made with the most adorable digi image from a budding new artist named Kayla (you can find her stamps HERE).  Now this stamp was drawn by Kayla and turned into a stamp by Stitchy Stamps ( you can find her stamps HERE).  When I look at this cute little guy all I can think is how much he needs a good friend and a hug. Wouldn't you love to take him home with you?

Since this is one of Kayla's first stamps, I decided to make a keepsake box she could keep. I know I am looking forward to working with her stamps again.

You can also follow Kayla's Blog HERE to know when she adds new stamps.  Her stamps are under the name Purple Panda Designs.

Kimono Kids

I got this new SU stamp set especially for Lauren because she loves anything oriental. I wasn't real sure what colors to use as there were several to choose from. After using yellows and greens, I wish I had chosen others so I wonder what color combo would you use for this set? I would like to make 8 - 10 cards and want to use different color combos for each so any suggestions would be welcomed.

I hope everyone in blog land is doing well. Just maybe (keyword maybe) I can finally get motivated to post more often, at least that is my fall goal.
