Cheers!

The Challenge this week over on the SSS blog is Emboss it!  I made a card for a Co-worker of mine and I am entering it into this week challenge.
 
 
I used the new Tim Holtz texture paste and a stencil for this.  I gotta say I really love the texture paste!  Do you have any yet? 
 
That's all for today!  Cheers everyone...

A little card share and some thoughts...

I have a card to share today that I made for my grandmother and I am entering it into the pool for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge Anything Goes! 
 
 I used the SSS June card kit stamp set for this one.  I just LOVE this stamp set.  I also really love the overall card design but... have you ever made a card and then looked at it and weren't completely happy with a few things about it but didn't want to start all over!?  That is the case with this one.  So rather than redo it I am just going to tell you what I would change, Lol.  First is the color that I stamped those leaves and the outline of them, its just not quite right..  Second is the sentiment, I love it but it blends to much with the background it doesn't stand out, however I would still want it black so I am thinking I should have heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  What do you think?  Enough of my rambling for today, thanks so much for stopping by!

I made a card!

Hello everyone!  I finally had some time to sit down and just make something.  So I decided to play along with the AE Challenge.
 
 
 
The challenge was to make Pattern Paper, (I don't have the graphic from the website due to the fact that my computer is acting up).  I used AE pigment ink in Mint to be, Fog and Orchid and I used the Build a Banner and Bottle it Up stamp sets.  Can I just say I LOVE these inks!  They are amazing:)  Well that is all for today...

It's been a while...

Hello!  It has been quite a bit since I have updated my little blog here.  I had some HUGE news at the end of March... I was one of the 2014 Stamping Royalty winners!!  Such an honor that was I still can't believe it.  The issue should be viewable any day now and I can't wait to see all of the winning cards.  So I had a little time last night and made a card to enter into a couple of challenges The Make it Monday-Debossing stamped images and SSS Anything goes.  Gotta say I had so much fun making this card and I really need to make more time for some of the challenges that I love entering.  Here is my card...
 
 
Well that's all for today, thanks so much for stopping by it means a lot:)

Newton's Nook Designs Release Day 1

Hello!  I am so excited to be guest designing this month for Newton's Nook Designs.  The April release is fabulous and I am having so much fun creating with these stamps!  For today I have made a Mothers Day card but this set can be used for so many other occasions.
 
 
 
I started by stamping the heart image randomly on my card base and coloring them in.
I stamped the rose and leaves and fussy cut them out then adhered them to my card base on top of a messy ball of gold thread ( I seriously love the look of thread on my cards).  I added some shimmer to the images with my Wink of Stella glitter pen and it looks so pretty in person.  Lastly I  stamped the sentiment on vellum an adhered it to the card.

Would you like to win Love Grows?
This set will be given away to Two lucky winners!

A little update...

Good Morning!  I am not sure who if anyone really reads my little blog here but I am giving everyone who does a little update on my life...
 
 
Recently a Scrapbook Store opened up right down the street from me and I have been in heaven!  I used to have to order almost everything online and now I get to go to the store and touch and feel all that eye candy in person!  They even offered me a position on their design team:)  And this Saturday I will be teaching a class for the first time using the WRMK Pillow box punch board.  Here is a photo of what I made for this class.
 
 
I absolutely LOVE Crate Paper and Maggie Holmes so the paper and most of the embellishments were made using Crate Paper products.  Cute right?
 
Well that is not the only exciting thing happening in my little world right now I am also going back to work full time!  My kids are getting older and so I made the hard decision to go back to work.  I have loved being a stay at home mom but I am also looking forward to the next chapter of my life.
 
That is all for now.  I want to say Thank you so much to those who do read my blog it means a lot and I will be back soon:)

Make it Monday

Happy New Year!  I had a great holiday and enjoyed some quality time with my kids this Holiday break.  They went back to school today and I had some time to spend in my craft room.  I made this Project Life card for my 2014 PL layout page and I am entering it in this weeks Make it Monday #147.

 

I stamped the camera on white cardstock twice and on an ombre sheet of paper.  I fussy cut the center out of the peach ombre paper and popped it up on the camera and then punched out the center lens of the final camera and popped that up and applied some glossy accents. 

Until next time...
