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!

Hi Steph, love your card and I know you love Halloween. I like how you made it look like a jack-o-lantern's face. Great job!

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
