Last Pumpkin Challenge!

Hello again!

Today marks my last post of the year 2014.
I am so grateful for all the blessings received during this marvelous year, the year of increase indeed.
I am also looking forward to new beginnings and much joy for the 2015. 

Sadly, I realized this weekend several of my friends caught the so-mentioned flu. :(
It was then that the idea to use all my not-yet completed cards from the Snowflake kit to send Get Well wishes came to me. I added the sentiment "Feel Better" from the Sassy Salutations and it fit perfectly on the middle. 

My friends at My Pumpkin Challenge made also their last post for the year using this awesome kit…and I know you cannot wait to see the beauties they made for next week. 
Check out My Pumpkin Challenge today!

This is how I did the regular bow first with the twine, then added Stampin'Dimensionals
to only one side, then added the punched circle.

This is my last card with this kit (yes! I used the whole kit!). The ribbon is form a previous MPP. Precious Specialty Paper All is Calm…still available till January 5th..I think! 
The 6th a new Occasions catalog starts! Yay!

I made sure it looked pretty on the inside.

It is a Happy New Year card (sentiments Good Greetings!)

Don't you love how this kit added open envelopes to accommodate your "bulgy" card well? I loved it!

Remember this card I made for Christmas. I "upgraded it" for my dad.
He loves pictures….and this card is perfect for that indeed.

Check what I did…

Now would you like to keep using this set for other occasions. Do so!
Have a beautiful ending of 2014 and a hopeFUL beginning of 2015.

Creative Blessings,

Sneak Peek: Retrosketch #146

Hello my dear stampers,

As part of  "enjoying" my time these last days I decided to play a bit with stamps that inspire me at the moment and try some challenges. Gee! I've been keeping so busy I haven't gone to challenges much. Retrosketches #146 is one of my favorites.

This sketch is so fun and beautiful…

I love the new paper stacks that are coming January 6th with the Occasions Catalog so I want to give you a sneak peek of such awesome paper. What do you think?

Stamp Set: Groovy Love
Banner Punch, Vintage Faceted Button, New DSP pack (coming January 6th)
It comes with one side in reds and pinks and the opposite in black and white!

Truly enjoyed decorating the insides.

The circles theme followed through out the whole card…sweet!

Be blessed with joy today!

Birthday Invitations for a Friend

A dear friend who graduated with me from college asked me if I could design some birthday invites for her mom's birthday party. She gave me an idea and colors and here is what happened after. I am so glad she liked these and they were delivered safely -even during such a busy mailing season-.
God is good, and I am blessed!

Love the Dress Up framelit….honestly, with two girlies in this house I doubt I will ever give it away. I think you may still find it on clearance till supplies last soon again. I noticed they took it off…as of now we are into Year-End closeout sales. Check those out…great deals!

My friend loved the transparency I used and the Blushing Bride Cardstock. Hoping she has a beautiful celebration indeed.

Have a beautiful Monday!

Beautiful mantel….

This was made by my friend Virginia…eek! Love that owl punch!

This was made by my friend Linda from church. She saw this idea somewhere online and got it done. Is so beautiful…love looking at it. Imagine eating?! My kids will have a blast! I plan to open it on Christmas day for our family Games Day!

My two favorite Christmas cards of 2014

I so enjoy meeting with my sweet Paper Pumpkin ladies every month. Not only is exciting to bring them new ideas, but when they get creative is an explosion. This time one of my friends and artist Faith Saxton, went ahead to punch a heart with the new Heart Punch out of the "wrong" card stock. aaarghh!

Ha! Neither of us knew at the time it was going to be the beginning of a beautiful card. I TOTALLY fell in love with her card more than mine..haha! 
I will show you mine below but hers is soo sweet I added it to My Pumpkin Challenge this week. Go check what my other friends created for you.

Faith's card is definitely one of my most favorite cards ever. So creative!

We had fun with the Silver Encore Ink Pad…can you tell?
The outside and the inside are so precious! 
I am really blessed to be able to stamp with Faith and my other ladies. 
I cherish each of hem. 

And THIS was my inspiration card I gave them….easy peasy eh!

I finally got myself this beautiful snowflakes embossing folder…why I took so long?

My inside card was super simple compared to the beauties my ladies made, lol!

Check out my other most favorite card of this year. 
I used the happy holidays stamp from this Paper Pumpkin kit

I went to make a quick card and it happens to be that a Mint Patty was on my desk…hey!
Inspiration happens. Love this Wondrous Wreath…so glad I got it. It is the most beautiful wreath and my first wreath stamp too! Can you believe that?

I used Real Red and Mossy Meadow…also Garden Green and Pistachio Pudding ink pads. 
What a mix! It worked I think! Te beautiful embossing folder is the Mosaic.

Hope you are inspired to start creating in 2015! I am loving each of these stamps…
Life is full at the moment with family, Christmas shopping, sending packages, Church programs and dinners…but as soon as things get a bit settled you will see more. 

Check tomorrow for a few more Christmas samples…

Love you all truly….
Jessica Urrutia
