Morning Cup

Well its offical I am now a Stampin Up Demonstrator!  Yea:) I am so excited.

This is the card I made for the shoebox swap I went to on Saturday at FRANCE'S house.  It was a blast.  I used the morning cup stamp set for this one.  The quilt pattern in the background is done using paper from the comfort cafe' DSP and the 1 1/4" square punch.  I didn't have enough paper for everyone to make it in the same color so everyone had a different color from the same DSP pack.  That lovely Doilie was made using soft suede CS and the new Delicate Doilies Sizzilits die.  I really love this die.  A Doilie is perfect to go behind a teacup.  Colors used on this card are Soft Suede, Real red, very vanilla and comfort cafe' DSP.  I hope you like, I know I had so much fun making this one.

On another note:  We bought a new house this past October and have been fixing it up.  The upstairs is pretty much done now.  We finally got the master bedroom painted and carpeted. and the master bath is totally redone.  I got to move back into my bedroom last night, it was so exciting.  Now we can start working on the basement.  We have a family room(a.k.a. stamp and art room) and 2 bedrooms to paint and carpet. Oh and the stairs. 

Thanks for stopping by, Would love to hear 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
