Stamping 411

Good evening!! I hope everyone is ready for a nice weekend. I thought I would get a jump on this weeks Stamping 411 challenge . This was a fun sketch to work with, anything will go good with this sketch. Check it out and give it a try. This card has all new stuff on it except for the white CS and black embossing powder. The stamp set is called Wicked Cool. The colors are peach parfait, concord crush, and whisper white. Everything in black is embossed with black embossing powder. I had sooooo much fun making this card, after all halloween is one of my favorites. I added some rhinestone jewels to the hats. I hope you are having a great start to your weekend and take some time to stamp (it's great therapy). Thanks for stopping by:)


This is just adorable. I love what you have done with this sketch. Fabulous Steph!!!

Absolutely adorable! I love what you did with the sketch and how your images are not across on the same plain.. You added interest by off setting them ~ I think this is fantastic!

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!

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.
