Baby Onesie Card – CC475

cc475 baby

The latest color challenge at Splitcoaststampers (CC475) is “Point me to a Real Pie” – Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie. With dessert option of enamel dots.

I cut the blue card smaller than the onesie die, so the card is similar to a tent topper. And I positioned the enamel dots to be the onesie snaps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Brownies

Hubby and I went to college town late Saturday afternoon to take Offspring1 and Offspring2 out to dinner. We haven’t seen them since their spring break (4 weeks), but we didn’t want to disrupt their schedules too much. Offspring1 suggested a restaurant named Sardi’s Pollo A la Brasa, that serves Peruvian Chicken (rotisserie chicken, similar to what we get from Giant or Sam’s). A VERY busy cafeteria style restaurant in an old Pizza Hut building. A bit loud. It was really good food. Sadly, Offspring3 was working and didn’t get to join us.

Of course I had to take a treat for the Offspring!

I love Baker’s Chocolate One Bowl Brownies – quick, easy. I used mini muffin tins (sprayed with PAM), and added a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of Nestle’s Mini Tollhouse Morsels to each one prior to baking. Baking time will vary, I think mine were in the oven for 18 minutes (and it was probably a minute too long).

Offspring1 and Offspring2 each got a disposable container of brownies (along with other supplies they had requested).

The Pillsbury Doughboy is so right, NOTHIN’ SAYS LOVIN’ LIKE SOMETHING FROM THE OVEN!

58th Anniversary Card, Terps Theme

58 anniversary stump

My parents are celebrating their 58th anniversary this coming weekend. WOW. I decided to make this card a University of Maryland Terrapin theme. Why, you ask? Well, neither of them attended Maryland, neither did I, neither did my sibling. My Dad has been a Maryland fan since the 1970′s (I don’t remember him following college sports prior to that, perhaps they were more commonly televised beginning in the 1970′s?). When the Colts left Baltimore in 1984, my parents got University of Maryland football season tickets to replace their Colts season tickets. Thirty years have gone by, and after this past fall season, they decided to not renew their Terps season tickets.

I think it is to protest the University of Maryland moving from the ACC to the Big Ten. ;-)  Not really…although, the conference change presents the perfect break away point. A changing of the guard.

Thinking of You Note Card – CC474

cc474 thinking of you

This week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (CC474) is Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, and Very Vanilla. With dessert option of NO STAMPING.

I knew immediately what supplies I was using – a new die, Stem Silhouettes 4 from Taylored Expressions, and a tag die from Lawn Fawn.

I cut three of the stems out of cream cardstock, and colored them with markers and a blender pen. I cut two tags – one of vellum paper, one of Pistachio Pudding, and adhered the vellum one behind the Pistachio one. I wrote the sentiment with a Copic Multiliner, and glued the stems around the sentiment. The tag is mounted on an embossed cream panel, then to a note card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mother’s Day Tulips Card – PPA199

ppa199 mothers day

I am trying to work on a custom 50th birthday card, but the current Pals Paper Arts (PPA199) color challenge was swirling in my head. The colors are Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron.

Tulips and butterflies worked for me! There is a touch of clear Wink of Stella on the butterfly wings, a slight shimmer that I could not capture with my camera. This stamp set is retired, but one that I will never give up. I just find it so versatile.

Thanks for stopping by!
