Cheery and Bright

Wasn't it just in the last post that I said I wasn't really adventurous with my colors? Umm, well I seem to be getting a bit more spunky!

The first card is for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger and also for Caardvarks challenge to use stickers. The bright, clean look of the Moxie trigger photo really inspired me. I did have to pop out to M's to get this ribbon. Can you believe I did not own a stitch of yellow ribbon. With all my ribbon, how can that be?? I'm quite happy to give this yellow beauty a new home!

Ribbon is from Offray, Paper is from Cosmo Cricket (Lil' Man), the tag is a sticker from American Crafts and the rub on is from Melissa Frances.

The next card is for the sketch on CPS this week, still using the Cosmo Cricket papers. The chipboard swirl is from Cosmo Cricket as well, flower is from Prima, sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

And here is my new addiction. I recently won a prize on the Tombow Blog, and along with a bunch of great adhesives, the package included a pack of their dual brush markers. Not being a big stamper, I really had no idea where to start until I found Marie Browning's tutorial. On the weekend, I sat down and just played. When I realized how easy stamping with markers was, I pulled out some SU stamps that I've barely used and went to town. I just had so much fun coloring and punching!

Which leads me to my Oldie Moldie Monday card. The October Afternoon paper is really not that old, but it has been in my stash for a couple of years. I still love it. I used one of my newly stamped circles and a Papertrey Ink sentiment.

We're getting hit with a snow storm and they're calling for freezing rain. I don't have to go anywhere tonight, so I think it's back to my studio with more bright colors to cheer me up.
Oh and I'm planning to watch the ice dancing, the Can. team is in first place going into the final.
Have a great evening...Ivanka
