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:)

Butterfly Prints/& update on my cousin


This card I made for my Aunt. I started with the stamping 411 sketch but I think I might be a little to late to enter it. I flipped the sketch on its side. It's not exact but the ideas there. Almost everything on this card is new stuff. The butterflys are from the butterfly prints set (I added dazzling diamonds to the butterflys) The background is from the new confetti stamp set (Love it). I used the new color coach for the colors on this card. I started with the butterfly stamped in Tangerine tango so I used the colors suggested for that color. They were Tangerine tango/cajun craze, so saffron, and pacific point. I added a neutral of crumb cake. The so saffron strip on the side is punched using the dotted scallooped ribbon border punch and the added bling is the new rhinestone jewels. I love how this turned out, what do you think?

I also wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was accepted into the craig rehab center in Denver. He will go there in about a week. I guess this is one of the best brain and spinal cord injury rehab centers in the country. We are very excited for him to get started on rehab and get better. We would still appreciate prayers for him. His name is Justin. Thank you so very much for your prayers:)

Bear Tie/ Prayer request

Sorry, I forgot to mention my cousins name is Justin.


Well I wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was working for a tree trimming company and had a log dropped on him. He is in pretty bad shape. He has 7 fractures in his spine and 1 in his neck and shoulder. He also fractured his skull and has some brussing and bleading on the brain. It sounds like it's going to be a long road ahead of him. We are not sure how much damage has been done at this point. I am asking for your prayers for him and my family. I thank you very much for your prayers.

This is a picture of my sons teddy bear. He wanted a tie for him so we used some of the 1 1/4 stripped grosgrain ribbon and a courdory brad.

Purse/and a Prayer



This is a purse I have been working on for a while. It's for my Aunt. This purse has one big pocket on the inside and 3 little pockets on the other side. I hope she likes it. I know it has been a while since I have posted anything. It's not a card but it's something.




On another note I would like to ask for your prayers for my family. My Grandpa has been very sick and is now in the Hospice center and today my cousin was hurt at work and is in the ICU at our hospital. Thank you.

Good morning, this is a card I made at France's house this weekend. Check out her blog here Love this card France. I just wanted to show what did to it. I was wondering what would happen if I sanded the embossed parts of the card. It really made the embossing stand out. I also used some of the new smooch pearlized top coat on all the embossed portions, and I used the gold smooch on the little square. Hope you like it. Well I'm off to grandpa's. Thanks for stoppin by:)


Here is a close-up. Hopefully you can see the glitter from the smooch. It's hard to see on the photo but in person it is glittery.
