Summer Order

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to share this order with you.  Some of these cards are recreations from Stamp Club, and some are ideas I've seen from Pinterest, usually with a bit of a twist depending on the materials I actually have.  Also note that there is something recycled in almost all of these cards - mostly paper.

These next few cards vary slightly as I was making doubles so I'd have some extra myself.  The ones on the left are mine, and the ones on the right are for the order (she wanted blank cards).

Hope you enjoyed!  <3 JEM

Good morning!  Something a little different for you today.  I actually finished this afghan for my friends way back in February, but just forgot to post it!  It was their wedding present.

Hope you like!  Have a great day <3 JEM

Monochromatic and Christmas

Happy Saturday afternoon, everyone!  Two new cards for you today.  I've had to experiment with different places to take my pictures with good light because my belly just won't let me lay on the floor anymore... Also my hands seem to shake more.. These turned out pretty well though!  So this first card is for The Challenge #10, for which I used the sketch only and not the colors.  I'm also submitting it for Merry Monday #115, which is to make a white on white card.  I'm not sure where the ribbon came from, but the card stock is from Michael's, and everything else is Stampin' Up.  Click the image to play along with the current sketch!

I've decided I really love this card and want to make more of it.  Totally digging the look.  So this card is for Freshly Made Sketches #143, as well as Colour Me Card Challenge #27.  I didn't have Blackberry Bliss so I used the closest color I had.  The white card stock and silver is from Michael's, the twine from a Christmas project, and the rest is Stampin' Up. <3 JEM

Double Post

Good evening!  Tonight's post features two cards covering 4 challenges total.  I wanted to post them all together to save digital space, I suppose.  This first card is for The Pink Elephant 257, as well as Runway Inspired Challenge #63.  I was excited when I saw the inspiration photo as it let me try out my chevron punch for the first time.  I chose to keep it simple and bold with straight edges like the dress.

Here's the inside with the sentiment so you do know it's a birthday card (and that I did use a stamp!)   :)  The black card stock is from a friend, the white from some unpublished books at work, the floral from an anniversary gift from my hubby, and the stamp and ink are Stampin' Up.

This second card is for Seize the Sketch #23 as well as The Paper Players #202.  The Paper Players Challenge was a Tic-Tac-Toe, so I chose to use green, embossing, and birthday.  The green card stock is from my mom, and the white is from those same books at work.  The stamps, ink, embossing folder, and framelit are Stampin' Up.  Hope you enjoy!  <3 JEM
