stamping 411

Wow, it's been a while since I have had time to participate in the stamping 411 challenge. You can check out the sketch here . I still need to make lots of xmas cards but I wanted to use this adorable stamp from SU's punch potpourri set. I stamped it in black ink on very vinilla CS and colored the flowers with my stampin' write markers. I'm not sure if you can see it but I rubbed some of my stampin pastels around the outside of the heart. I looks cool IRL. I also added some dazzling diamonds to the flowers. I used my texture plate on the marina mist CS. I haven't used my texture plates in forever, I am so addicted to the folders that I forget about the texture plates. I sponged with marina mist ink over the embossed portion to make it stand out a bit. I have enjoyed taking a day just to play with my stamps (I have been doing laundry in between, though). Just one more week and then we are off for christmas break, YEA!!!!
On the inside I layered a piece of very vinilla CS over the chocolate chip card base and stamped my sentiment from the On your birthday set. The flowers are from the Punch Potpourri set colored with my markers and punched out with the Boho blossoms punch. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by:)

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.

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.

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.
