Retro Fresh and Timeless Talk

I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE the Retro Fresh DSP from Stampin' Up! I have found that I have a hard time deciding on which sides of the paper to use. I used the sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches #133 and added some Retro Fresh DSP... this is what I came up with.

To give this card a "clean" look I decided to feature this great DSP and just a little stamping. It was very hard for me not to dry emboss the half circle but I thought the DSP was more than enough pattern for this card. This was the first time I had used the stamp set, Timeless Talk. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to use but I am sure I will be using it often now that it has seen some ink! :) I also covered a button using some washi tape. Cindy Beach had a wonderful tutorial on her site with some great ideas for washi tape. Check it out HERE!
As I stated earlier I loved this DSP but I also loved this sketch so I decided to make another card! This was the first time I had used the Perfect Blend stamp set too!

Both of these cards came together very quick. I was fun to show how different card can appear even though you are using much of the same products. Thanks for stopping by!!

MOJO Birthday

This weekend my brothers are celebrating their 40th birthday! They are twins and younger than me. I have so many wonderful memories of growing up with them and could not ask for better brothers. They are wonderful dads, terrific husband and great friends! I love them both very much!
Here is one of the card I created using the Mojo Monday sketch...
I love Tangerine Tango and Bermuda Blue Together. I wanted to make this card as clean as possible with a few little details so I added the candy dots as well as the paper piercing to set this apart. I also added a little splash to the sentiment to make it a bit more bold...different from the rest of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
