Time for the Red & Pink

I was a bit tired of Christmas cards, so this week I finally got to pull out my new products from the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog!   I paired my new products with the sketch from Mojo Monday and here was what I came up with.  I had been wanting to try the emboss resist technique FOREVER and finally did it!    Now if I can only learn to tie a bow!

Stamps: Valentine Defined
Paper: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Love Patterns DSP
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink
Other: Pretty in Pink 1/8" taffeta ribbon, white embossing powder
Tools: Modern Label punch, brayer, embossing tool

Christmas, Christmas

Here are a couple of cards that I made this week.   I don't love either of them, but it did feel good to get back in my room and stamp.   I was a bit let down from the results of my craft fair, so I took some time off to feel sorry for myself and mope around the house.   I finally shed the negative attitude this week and straightened up my room and stamped.    Hopefully my mojo will come back soon and I can be making cards that I actually LOVE again.    :)

Guess who got a new toy?

I was going to buy myself My Digital Studio for my birthday, but thankfully Stampin' Up! had a Thanksgiving sale and I snagged it for 50% off then!   I was so excited when it got here this week and spent the whole day making a calendar for my brother.   I took so many pictures of his dogs while we were together in October and it was great to turn them into a gift for him.    Do you think he'll like it?   I know I do and they aren't even my pets!
