Winter Friends

Well I finally found some time to post on my blog.  I have been so busy lately trying to get Christmas gifts made and as always running my kids to all their activities.  This card is one I made a week or two ago.  The image is from Whimsy Stamps and I have water colored her with my distress inks.  The papers used are some from my stash and I also added some dew drops.
Here is a close up.  of Corse I added some glitter. I didn't add a sentiment because I wasn't sure I wanted this to be a Christmas card.  I think it would make a good friend or Thinking of you card.

 I spent many hours last night moving my stamping area from a corner downstairs to the spare bedroom upstairs.  I think I will use it more being upstairs where I can cook and watch the kids and the dogs and see outside.  On the downside my hubby does his painting downstairs so we wont be working together in the same room anymore and the fireplace is downstairs so I will miss that too.  But I can still go hangout down there when they are downstairs.

Easter

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!

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.
