Kristina Werner's Inspiration #25

Two cards this week! Super quick post b/c I only have 4 minutes until deadline (couldn't find my camera anywhere)...I'll try and get the recipes down now anyway, hopefully Kristina doesn't watch the seconds on these things...

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes & Occasions Collection
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Ruby Red
Ink: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Ruby Red, VersaMark
Accessories: Curly Label Punch, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Narrow Certainly Celery Grosgrain, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Ok - I know I cheated on this one because owls aren't Ruby Red, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, or Certainly Celery so I used various browns and More Mustard and of course Pumpkin Pie for their beaks and feet. I love these little guys and this is the first time I've inked them up since buying them (I used a cruisers set at our Sealed with a Stamp, Ink. group meeting back in April). I also used the Aquapainter which is a special this month (1 large one for $7.25) although I use the medium one more frequently so I'd recommend buying the regular package in the catalog! :)

Stamps: Owl Together Now
Cardstock: Watercolor Paper, Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, So Saffron, Ruby Red
Ink: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Ruby Red, Ballet Blue Stampin' Write Marker, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, VersaMark, Timber Brown StazOn
Accessories: Small & Large Tag Punches, Staples, Narrow Certainly Celery Grosgrain, Stampin' Dimensionals, Aquapainter, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Kristina's Color Inspiration #24 & New SU! Promos

LOVED these colors from Kristina Werner's 24th Color Inspiration Challenge! I'm obsessed with the Curly Label Punch Bundle - so fun! Go to my SU! website to order it now! I couldn't decide on Pumpkin Pie or Chocolate Chip ribbon so I did both! :) I'm also totally loving Stitched Exotics but I meant to stamp the Top Note Die with the Stitched background (LOVE that stamp!) Oh, well that's what I get for crafting at 3 am. Without further ado, the supplies are:

Stamps: Stitched Exotics, Curly Label Punch Bundle, & Calendar Alphabet & Numbers
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, and Kiwi Kiss Classic Inks
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Curly Label Punch & Trio Flower Punch, Silver Brad, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon, Sizzix Big Shot w/ Top Note die, Stampin' Dimensionals
