Cheep Talk! 29

Cheep Talk!

Hi Girls! I survived the CRAZINESS of the TWO pre-teen & teenager pool parties this weekend! ;) Not one crumb left over from TWO dozen of cupcakes, ONE dozen of White Chocolate Macadamia Nut & ONE dozen of Chocolate Chunk cookies & EIGHT bags of various chips! :) Those kids can really eat!!! Thankfully, I have the day off from my REAL job, (the one that supports this hobby / paper addiction :), so I gathered some ingredients including sprinkles & started creating! :) My inspiration for this card comes from the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge - Week 6 that can be found at www.DAWNMCVEY.TYPEPAD.COM & from the Challenge 51 Buttons Galore than can be found at www.aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com I stamped my own Designer Paper starting with a white sheet of CS, randomly stamping a bird image using VersaMagic's Sea Breeze Chalk Ink, then heat embossing with clear embossing powder. Repeating these steps with the other stamps & colors used. I love heat embossing with VersaMagic Chalk Ink because its consistancy is so thick & moist. Perfect for embossing! Please feel free to leave a comment telling me what you think of my creation! :) Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Be Sweet! Until next time...

Ingredients used:

Paper: SU Cool Caribbean, Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

Ink: VersaMagic Sea Breeze, Jumbo Java, Pink Grapefruit Chalk Ink

Stamps: SU Cheep Talk

Sprinkles: Spellbinders Labels One, EK Success Scalloped Circle & Round punches, Offray satin ribbon, Jo-Ann Craft Essentials buttons, brads & clear embossing powder, DMC embroidery floss

This is by far your best ever! You need to get with Stampin'Up or perhaps one of the specialty paper designers and start selling designer paper! You did such a great job with your paper for this card! I am super impressed. I'd buy some of that paper from you!!!!

Hi Girls! Thanks for all the kind words but my little birds did not make it to the Top 10 Spotlight :( There is a lot of talented people out there! I am going to keep trying:) Please visit again to what I am up to next! Hugs, Mona

GerhardineF said...

Most darling card I've seen in a long time! Simply beautiful! You should have won the contest!

Chris said...

Beautiful work on this card! Love the paper you created! Very sweet!

Cindy Percovich said...

Like some others have said already, you should have won the challenge with this card. I checked out the top 10 and NOTHING comes close to your beautiful design. I stopped doing these challenges a while back because they are so biased for those that use their product line... Despite this, you should feel good about your awesome designs!!!!
-Cindy (I'm a big fan)

Hi Girls! I posted this comment elsewhere, but I just wanted to make sure you all read this. Thank you for all your support! You are all so nice! :) I guess I lost focus for a short time & got caught up in the moment of wanting to make the Top 10 in the challenges :( I apologize because my intentions with this blog is to share what I love to do with you girls! I hope you all understand. :) All the comments that you girls leave and the number of followers that are interested in my creations are WAY MORE than I ever imagined! So sincerely, thank you very much!:)Hugs & Kisses xoxo Mona
