LNS Challenge--Brads

The challenge this week for Late Night Stampers is to use brads. Simple, right? Yea...if you have no problem letting those fun little embellishments go. :) For my first card for the challenge, I did a remake of an older SAS card. Instead of using just some shimmer paint dots, I changed it up and used some brads. I just love this cutie.

Sweet Treat Cups, plus this week's LNS Challenge's been way too long. I have a ton of projects to post, just haven't had the time to sit down and do it. So..tonight I'm making that time to post a project. This little project meets two purposes. upline asked me to demo this type of sweet treat cups card with the pull out tag at our last meeting. Two....this week's challenge for Late Night Stampers is to create something with a Hugs and Kisses theme. So, although I haven't really started my own Christmas cards, I created a 3x3 card with Valentine's Day in mind. I love the Sweet Treat Cups, but hated that I would have to tear up the project just to get the goodies. I have seen and tried various ways to use them with a tag that pulls out. This one simply uses glue dots on the four corners, then you are able to slide the tag through and over the hole that opens up to the center of the card. Once the tag is pulled out and the sweets are gone, you can see the circle with the "I *heart* YOU" through the Sweet Treat Cup.

Stamps - Sweet Centers, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink - Real Red
Paper - Real Red CS, Very Vanilla CS, Polka Dot DSP from Christmas Jingle SS Kit
Accessories - Circle Punches (1 3/8", 1", 3/4"), Round Tab Punch, Sweet Treat Cups, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots

LNS Challenge #43

This week's challenge on Late Night Stampers is to create a card using only the colors found in your favorite candy wrapper. My all-time favorite is Reese's Pieces, so I decided to go with Pumpkin Pie, Yo Yo Yellow, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. All I could think of when putting these colors together was......candy corn. I had remembered seeing a tutorial at one point creating the fun candies and I wanted to try it out. All you do is layer punched circles and then punch out the little candies with one of the points from the large star punch. How fun is that?! I love punch art!! :)

Stamps - Sweet Centers
Ink - Only Orange
Paper - Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White
Accessories - Circle Punches (1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1", 3/4"), Scallop Circle Punch, Large Star Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

What's your favorite candy? What will you create with the colors found in the wrapper? Join in on the fun. Make sure to post your creation by Sunday night. If you aren't a member of LNS yet, check it out here.

Another one for LNS Challenge 42

Here's another one for this week's Late Night Stampers challenge. The challenge is to use Ruby Red, Really Rust and Old Olive together. I know if I look outside right now, these colors are scattered about my lawn and the trees. Since I didn't use a fall image on my first creation, I decided to use one for this second one. Not quite sure about the knots, but I felt there was a void there and I needed something. I do really like how the image turned out though with the three colors used for the leaves.

Stamp Sets - Forest Friends, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink - Ruby Red
Paper - Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, Really Rust, Naturals White
Accessories - Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Write Markers (Ruby Red, Old Olive, Really Rust and Close to Cocoa)

Take some time this weekend and see what you can create with these colors.
