Ron Don't look

Surprise, surprise I'm back. lol. I know I'm off work for the summer so I should be able to post more often but this week has been busy. I finally got all my paper neatly organized and I am ready to start stamping again. Well this card I started off wanting to do the Stamping 411 sketch but ended up going another way. I'll have to do the Stamping 411 tomorrow. This card is for my hubby. Our anniversary is on Sunday, 12 wonderful years together. Almost everything on this card is new except for the Very vanilla CS the pewter brad and the metal swirly thing. This is a really neat card I saw on another ladies blog a while back. ( It has a secret door and opens up where you can leave a hidden message. How cool is that!!! On the front of the card I used an image from Studio Sketches and I also used the vintage wallpaper embossing folder and the DSP is called Newsprint. (all new items coming in July).

On the inside of the card I used the bird from Elements of style a sentiment from Occasional Quotes and a sentiment from With all my heart Stamp sets.
Here you can see how it opens to reveal a hidden page. very cool!!!

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.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
