Love You

Happy Saturday!

Only 2 days left and then I have to go back to work :(.  This is a card I made for my daughter for valentines day.  Yes I am way ahead of schedule, which is very rare for me.  She love bright colors.  I'm thinking of redoing it with a bright green or blue as the main color since that is her favorite.  I got my idea for this card from something I saw on pinterest, although I did change it up a bit.  I didn't want the hearts to be plain but I don't have a heart stamp so I stamped them with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the image.  Love the touch of the buttons.  I don't seem to use buttons very often but I love them on this card.  The background was kinda plain so I used another stamp from gorgeous grunge for that.  The Love You stamp is from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set.  Colors used for this card are Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay, and Whisper White.  On the inside of the card I used the Happy Valentines stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Now I need to make my sons valentine card.  Boys are always so much harder when it come to Valentines Day, but I think I have a good idea of what I want to do.


Super cute Valentine's Day card, Steph! You ARE way ahead of schedule! I'm jealous. I was just looking at the back of my daughter's bedroom door looking at some of the Valentine's cards hanging on it thinking I need to get busy on those for my family too. Not gonna happen for a bit though.

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
