Pleasant Poppies

I'm back with another card.  Wow I think that's 3 days in a row, it must be some kinda record for me.  On this card I used a lot of stuff I haven't used in a long time.  Colors used are crisp cantaloupe, early espresso, and Gold Foil paper.  I embossed the early espresso core'dinations paper with pretty print embossing folder and then sanded the top of it.  Love the sanded look.  On the Gold Foil paper I stamped the pleasant poppies stamp in versa mark and embossed with Gold embossing powder.
The ribbon used is the 3/8 ruffle stretch trim in crisp cantaloupe and the 5/8 crochet trim.
Well that's it for today.  I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by:-)

Best of Halloween

Happy Monday!

Todays card was made using the sketch challenge over atHand Stamped Sentiments.  I used a stamp from the best of Halloween stamp set from Stampin Up.  I stamped it with versa mark on whisper white CS and embossed it with black embossing powder.    I added some color to the windows and moon using my stampin write markers and a blending pen.  The orange rhinestones are just the basic rhinestone jewels colored with an orange sharpie marker.  The ribbon is the 1/8 taffeta ribbon in pumpkin pie and basic black.  That cute bat DSP is from the Holiday Catalog and it is called Witches Brew. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure to stop by and check out all the other great cards on Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Christmas Cheer

Hello stampers,

On this card I used the stamp set Wishing You from the holiday catalog and the sentiment is from the sweet Essentials set.  This card was originally going to be a snowman card but I changed my mind when my snowman didn't turn out like I wanted.  Colors used are Island Indigo, Pool Party and calypso coral.  The burlap can be found in the Holiday Catalog.  The Island Indigo CS is the textured CS which I embossed with the stylish stripes folder and the pool party piece was embossed with the polka dots folder.  For the snow I just ripped a couple of pieces of pool party and added some dazzling diamonds glitter.  The image was colored with my markers directly on the stamp.  I think I need to add some sparkle to the presents.  Well I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by:-)

Team sketch #4

Here is the card I made for the team sketch #4.  Thank you Sara for creating these sketches for us.  I need a lot of thank you cards right now so this is what I used the sketch for.  I used the six sided sampler stamp set.  Colors used are wisteria wonder, soft sky, very vanilla and afternoon picnic DSP and some wisteria wonder chevron ribbon.  Oh and half of a paper doily, some basic pearls, and the pretty print embossing folder which I sponged with wisteria wonder ink after I embossed it. 

That's it for today.  I hope you like it.


Todays card is one I made for a challenge from my Upline.  She gave us a piece of coaster board and left it up to us to figure out a way to use it.  I used mine to cut out letters with my big shot.  I stamped with the gorgeous grunge stamp set on the letters in smoky slate and sponged the edges with pumpkin pie ink.  The layout of the card is from another challenge from my uplines team which is a sketch challenge.  I used 3 different papers from the Halloween DSP. 
Imagine this picture flipped the right way.  this is the inside of the card. 

This is what has been keeping me busy lately.  Meet Hazel our new puppy.  She is a 8 week old chocolate lab/ weimaraner mix.  We just love her to pieces, she is so much fun.
