Stamping 411

Good evening! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend, I know I am. So glad to be off work. For todays card I used the stamping 411 sketch. They always have great sketches to work with. Check them out here . On this card I used the santa from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set. I stamped him on crumb cake CS. For the white parts I used bleach in one of my water pens. The rest I painted with re-inkers some water and a paint brush. I embossed his boots with clear embossing powder to make them shinny so they look like real boots. The snowflake is a die called snowflakes set #2, it comes with 4 different snowflakes. I added dazzling diamonds to make it sparkle. The DSP is called deck the halls. I sprayed the DSP with my alcohol and shimmer paint mixture and I also added some rhinestone jewels.

Here is a picture of the inside. The snowflakes are from the serene snowflakes set and the sentiment is embossed with chocolate chip ink and clear embossing powder. I hope you like what you see. Thanks for stopping by:)

Hey Steph! This is gorgeous. I really like that DP. The inside is just beautiful too. The snowflakes really finish it off. I've been trying to remember to design the insides of mine too!

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.
