Stamping 411

Well, this is my first christmas card this year, July sounds like a good time to start on christmas cards. lol.  I used the sketch over at Stamping 411 to make this card.  I used the sweet little girl from the greeting card kids.  I used my new twinkling H20's to water color her.  The DSP is called letters to Santa (beautiful paper).  I love all the new stuff from SU.  I used the stripes embossing folder on the cherry cobbler piece.  For the sentiment I used a stamp from the "Four Frames" stamp set and a merry christmas stamp from a retired stamp set (Merry Crittermas), and punched it out using the decorative label punch.  The ribbon is also new, it's 1/2" scallop dots ribbon in Chocolate chip. I added a glimmer brad in real red to the bow.  Love how this card turned out.  Hope you like it.  Thanks for stoppin by:)
Here is a close-up of the image.  I watercolored some blue in the background behind her.  I LOVE to watercolor, it is so relaxing and fun.

My Friend

Hello,  This is a card that was a make-n-take at France's house about a week ago.  I added a glimmer brad and some glitter to it and wanted share it.  Love this card, I'm glad she used this stamp set cause I'm not sure if I would have ordered it if I hadn't had the chance to play with it. lol.  Anyways I used Dazzling Diamonds on the main image and I used the Fine galaxy glitter in champagne on the background.  Well I've got to run, today is the state shoot for 4-H.  Thanks for stopping by:))

chocolate dipped strawberries

Good Morning!   I added some chocolate to my strawberry card.  Scroll down to see the original card.  I did one with milk chocolate on both strawberries and one with 1 milk chocolate and 1 white chocolate.  I did this using the full heart punch and then cut it in half with a wavy line.  (hope that makes sense).  I've been having lots of fun with these strawberries.  Well that's it for now, Thanks for stopping by:)

Sweet Strawberries

Good Evening!  I've been thinking about this card all day and couldn't wait to sit down and make it.  I saw someone had made a strawberry with the Scalloped Heart embosslit die and I just had to try it.  I also used the 5 petal flower punch and the Sweetest stem embosslit for the leaves and stem.  The CS used is real red, crumb cake, very vanilla, and Garden green.  I added a Glimmer brad in Real red to the bow.  The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes.  Now I wish I had the new Fruits & Flowers stamp set so I could stamp the strawberry on the inside of the card.  Well I hope everyone is having a sweet summer.  Thanks for stopping by:)

I've got my eyes on you!

OMG, was this card ever fun to make.  I've had the "make a monster" stamp set for  a while but this is the first time I've used it.  I used the Stamping 411 sketch to make this card.  I stamped the monster with black staz-on on water color paper and added some eyes, mouth, and antenna's.  I colored it with my SU watercolor pencils.  I didn't have any cool monster paper so I stamped some of the eyes on a piece of elegant eggplant paper with my elegant eggplant ink.  I used my build-a-brads with the eyeball stamps, I know the build-a-brads are no longer available but I thought the eyeballs would be cute.  If I had the new polka dot brads I would have used them and the glitter brads would also look great.  Oh yeah I also added crystal effects to the eyes on the monster.  I printed the sentiment from my computer.  The colors used on this card are:  Basic black, elegant eggplant, old olive, and whisper white.  On the inside of the card I layered a piece of whisper…
