Stamping 411

T.G.I.F.!!! Well I am soooo glad it's the weekend, how about you? I made this card for the stamping 411 sketch challenge. I have to try to keep up with my friend France and she has been doing these stamping 411 challenges, so I thought I would give it a try. I Love this card. I got to play with a lot of new stuff thats not available until May 1st. This cute little fairy image was so much fun to color. The BG paper is the new Presto Patterns Specialty paper. I used the new smooch spritz to color it. I just sprayed several of the different colors and blended with a sponge dauber. I then added some regal rose ink in a few spots. It turned out very nice with lots of shimmer to it. I got the idea for this from a gal named Sandi. here is a link to her instructions. I sewed around my image to finish it off. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags Stamp set in the occasion mini catalog. Here is a close up of the fairy. Thanks for stoppin by. TTFN!!:)

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pintrest CASE


Once or twice a month I get together with some friends to stamp, we have so much fun and are always looking forward to the next time we can get together.  This is one of the cards we made at our last get together.  This was a total CASE from pinterest.

I don't really have much to talk about today.  Took the day off work and I haven't gotten anything done.  I have so much to do and I can't seem to figure out where to start.  Anyways I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
