Happy Sunday!!!  I managed to get a card done today but it was not easy.  We are still working on our floors and I have no where to set up my stampin stuff so I have to dig through boxes every time I need something.  I'm not sure of the names of the stuff I used as I have already put them away and i can't find my catalog to look them up.  The tree stamp I think is called Christmas lodge.  I stamped it in Always Artichoke on watercolor paper.  I distressed all the edges on all the layers.  I inked up the edges of the main image with crumb cake ink and added shimmer paint in champagne mist to all the edges and to the tree, it has lots of sparkle.  On the crumb cake layer I used the snowflake embossing folder from SU.  I added some silver brads and some early espresso quilted ribbon. 

On the inside I layered a piece of always artichoke and whisper white paper.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Season set in the big catalog.  Well I think this turned out very nice considering all the trouble I had finding the stuff I wanted to use.  Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment and let me know what you think:)

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
