Serene Silhouettes

Happy Snow Day! 

We had a snow day today, yes it's mid April but that is when we get our worst snow storms.  Since I work at a school I got the day off Yay, and I just heard we are having another snow day tomorrow. 

For this card I used the sketch over at Try Stamping on Tuesday.  Love this LO.  I used Serene Silhouettes for this card.  I am calling this my spring in Wyoming card since it looks like the tree and birds are covered in snow.  The colors I used are Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, and Always Artichoke.  I got this color combo from the back of the pink pirouette color coach card.  The DSP is from the Twitterpated pack.  I wanted to use some ribbon in Sahara Sand but I didn't have any, actually I don't think SU sells any in Sahara Sand.  So I used the 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon in whisper white and I sponged it with Sahara Sand ink and now I have Sahara Sand ribbon.  I stamped the image on pink pirouette CS with whisper white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then sponged over that with pink pirouette and Sahara Sand and added some dazzling details to the birds and the branches of the tree.  I think the brads are actually crumb cake but they match close enough to the Sahara Sand.
Well that's it for now.  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.

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.

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.
