Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #50

Hi Stamping Friends!!
Wow!!!  Two posts in the same week.  Something special must be going on.  Actually there is!!!  A year ago this week, we posted our very first challenge at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  So we wanted to celebrate our first birthday with a bright and colorful party!!!  We hope you can come join the fun!

Stamps:  Punch Bunch (SAB)
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and various DSP (some retired)
Accessories:  Melon Pom-pom Trim, Scallop Square Punch, Glimmer Brads, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Turquoise Grosgrain

Don't you just love all the bright colors?!!  So many fun shades to choose from.  I made the party hats using the Square Scallop Punch and then just hand cutting them.  Love the little pom-pom tops!!  Make sure you stop by the Stampin' Celebration blog and see what the other designers have created.  We hope you can play along!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

ColourQ #83

Hi Stamping Friends!!
Can you believe it?!!  I'm finally blogging again!  I didn't intend to take a blogging break, but life started hurrying by, and blogging (and stamping!) got put on the back burner.  But I'm here for now and hope to make at least a weekly blog appearance.  Maybe even bi-weekly.  :)

Today's card is for the color challenge over at the ColourQ blog.  It's been so long since I've played along.  I'm surprised Arielle hasn't taken my picture off the Royal Court Design Team!  I hope you can play with us this week!

Stamps:  Petal Pizzazz, Perfect Punches
Paper:  Ice Cream Parlor DSP (SAB), Turquoise DSP is retired, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Daffodil Pom-pom Trim (retired), Big Buttons (retired), Turquoise Grosgrain (retired), Large Oval Punch, Tangerine EP, Peach Ribbon, Baker's Twine, Scallop Ribbon Punch

Sketch Challenge:  MOJO MONDAY #189

I'm really lovin' the stuff out of the Summer Mini Catalog, especially the Baker's Twine and the colored embossing powders.  So fun!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
