I’m so excited that Kristina Werner’s color challenge this week works perfectly for a Passover card! I’ve been feeling the need to make more, especially with these adorable froggies! Here are this week’s colors:


I decided to do another scalloped circle card. The circle reminds me of a seder plate. And the frogs, the second plague, are one of my family’s traditional Passover symbols. I used textured cardstock for the Kiwi Kiss and the Baja Breeze. I liked how it adds just a little more dimension.

Here’s another Passover related card. Well, for me it is Passover related because of all of the frogs, and frogs always make me think of Passover. For you, a frog may just be a frog. 🙂 This is from a sketch challenge on a new website I have been visiting called Stampin’ Addicts. It’s a happy, upbeat group of crazy stampers like myself.  The forums are a great place to chat and the gallery is growing. Today’s card:

Passover is coming up next week, and one of the things my family really likes to focus on are the ten plagues. Particularly the decorations — frogs and bugs more so than blood and boils. So I got it in my head to make a Ten Plagues Passover card. It took quite a few stamp sets, and a fairly loose interpretation of the plagues, but here is what I came up with:

cimg7667The plagues (and the stamp sets I used)
1) Blood (Pick a Petal)
2) Frogs (Hoppy for You)
3) Lice (Hoppy for You)
4) Wild Beasts (Wild About You)
5) Cattle Disease (Pun Fun)
6) Boils (All in the Family)
7) Hail (Pick a Petal)
8 ) Locust (Bugs & Kisses)
9) Darkness (Chocolate Chip Cardstock)
10) Slaying of the First Born (All in the Family, Family Accessories Too)

Ink: Ruby Red, Garden Green, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Creamy Caramel, Garden Green, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White

This whole going on vacation thing can certainly put a cramp in doing the different weekly challenges that I like to do! But better late than never, right? Here is what I came up with for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch:

mojo79sketchYou may notice that the colors are the same as the ones from the Cheep Talk card last week. I used the same colors from the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper. I love this paper pack. The colors are amazing!

Every month there is a Demonstrator Only challenge on Splitcoast Stampers called the WICKED challenge. It stands for Wonderfully Inspiring Challenges Keep Educating Demos. It general consists of three parts — a color challenge, a sketch challenge, and a technique challenge. This month I decided to do just the color challenge part. February’s colors are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. They are absolutely fantastic colors together! Looking at the Kiwi Kiss, I just knew I had to use those wacky frogs in the new Hoppy for You set. Here’s the card I came up with:


Stamps: Hoppy for You
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Bella Rose DSP
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch

Have a hoppy day!

I am loving this new frog set! It is so cute! And my favorite of all the sayings is “Time’s fun when you’re having flies!” I used it to make a card from last week’s SplitCoast Stampers Color Challenge. The colors were Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, and Garden Green. It’s hard to see, but I used one of the new Texturz plates on the Baja Breeze background. I also used the new Circle Scissors Plus to make the two round circles. Love it! So easy to use!
