Stamp with Us Recipe Challenge

I know what your thinking. 2 posts in 1 day. Well, for the next two days I am working, and besides that I wanted to post my card for the recipe challenge over at Stamp With Us. By the way, for those who may be interested, the girls over there are starting their 2nd round of fun and projects on August 1st. Would love to see you there.
Now for the important bit - for this challenge we had to use
2 x Patterned Papers,1 x Ribbon and 1 x Piece of Hardware.
I used Rose Red for the base and Close to Cocoa. My 2 patterned papers are from a retired lot called Berry Bliss. If you have had a chance to peruse my blog you will see that I made my Origami Box below in the same colors. My ribbon is also retired, unfortunately, it being the Purely Pomegranate 1" satin, and my hardware is the flower buckle. I also added 2 watercolor flowers from the Fifth Urban Floral stamp set. I was pleased with the overall effect. Hope you like it too.
Have a great day or night where ever you may be.

Slider Box with Cards

Today I have another project from UStamp with Dawn and Friends. Once again a project by Jenny Moors. This slider box with matching cards is so cute.
The colors I have used are Taken with Teal, Night of Navy, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. The DSP is called Bella Bleu. My butterflies are a new acquisition from Gel-a-tins called Butterflies are Free. I clear embossed the butterflies in Night of Navy and colored them in using my Stampin' Up Markers in a variety of colors.

Origami Box

I know, twice in 2 days, how can I manage that! I have another great project from UStamp with Dawn and friends to show you. This is my version of the origami box that was presented by Jenny Moors, the Dream Team Member from the UK. (Check our her blog, she is a very talented lady).

I used Stampin' Up's Rose Red cardstock with the Berry Bliss DSP. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate Satin which goes so well with this project. My "marigold" on top was cut with my Cricut Expressions machine using the Sure Cuts A Lot program and the lovely 3D Flowers SVG Kit. I alternated the petals using Rose Red and Pink Pirouette cardstock. The leaves were cut in Old Olive.
Here's what it looks like open -

Thanks for checking in. I hope you like my creation.

Have a great day or night where ever you may be!

Just another manic Monday!

Not really, but it sounded good and it is Monday. I have been on the Royal Blog Tour, a fantastic tour of 79 great Stampin' Up demonstrator sites. You should go check it out. There is even a competition to win a Big Shot for non demos. It's all on the site. You have today and tomorrow only to check it out.

I recently made 2 cards using the Friends 24/7 stamp set from Stampin' Up. I clear embossed this great stamp in Tempting Turquoise on Whisper White and bordered it with Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy. The designer paper is one that I found in my stash. You will notice that it is basically the same style as one that I posted a few weeks ago. I just love this style.
Using the same color theme but the clear embossed emblem is done in the Night of Navy. Just a different style.

Ok, that's it til tomorrow. Be tuned in to view my Origami Box.

Have a great day or night where ever you may be.
