Another Purse!

When I made the banner I had to pay several packs of these papers. It is the Whole Lot of Lovely Dsp pack. I wanted to use up some of the other papers and needed a project for next weeks retreat. So I started making this purse. I was thinking I don't know if I'm going to like this. But I actually love the way it turned out.
Plus I have had these pearls forever and they never seem to fit anything I do but I love them for this purse!
Happy Stamping!

Create Banner!

This is a banner I made for Marketplace at the retreat I am going to in Union, Wa next week.
I can't believe its next week already! Yikes!!
I used the Large Letters dies, the Layering Oval dies, both of the butterfly sets and a couple of punches. Also I used the Oh So Lovely DSP.
It turned out to be a lot of work to make 10 kits for these so I hope they go will at the retreat!
Happy Stamping!

Happy 30th!

Here is a birthday card I made for Katis 30th birthday coming up on the 10th. She said I'm not 30 I'm only 29! I told her I would make it 29 from now on!
I used the Beautiful Bouquet bundle for this card. So many flower stamps and dis in this set. I just love it. I stamped the flowers in white and then added some Wisteria Wonder with my marker.
Each little flower has a rhinestone in the center.
I also used the Number of Years bundle for the Happy Birthday and 30th plus the number 30.

Feathery Friends!

I had to go to the bathroom at Kohls the other day and it is back by the Hallmark cards. On the way out I saw a cute card and it made me think of this little bird.
This little bird comes from a hostess set called Feathery Friends. There are two cute birds and two flowers. I can't remember what else. I stamped the little bird and flowers and then colored them with my SU Watercolor Pencils and my clear Wink of Stella!
So if you place a $150 order you can get this adorable set for free! You can place an order thru my online store or just leave me a comment!

Graduation Girl!

Kati's graduation was officially in June but she had one term left to do. She completed that this last thursday. I surprised her with balloons and this card yesterday.
We had the emblem of her school made up for us at Main St Stamp and Stationary for scrapbooking.
I used her school colors for the card and the balloons!

Scrabble Anyone!?

I had to wait until I gave these to friends I made them for. They are obviously made with Scrabble pieces. I saw some done when I went to a cool antique store in Gearhart.
I used Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the Very Vanilla Lace ribbon.
I think they would make fun name tags also!

I just love this card! I think I found it on Pinterest. I can't remember for sure. But you can see the original card here .
The only thing I did different on my version is the ribbon. Mostly because I forgot to put it on until I already had the front on.
This card was done using the Lovely Words thinlits and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle. If you look at the Beautiful Bouquet bundle you will see how many awesome flowers it has. Its a great bundle! And it has a lot of different sentiments too!
This card is also using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Oval shapes too!. The little flowers are cut out with the Bouquet Bunch framelits from the Beautiful Bouqet Bundle. I have used Crumb Cake and Tranquil Tide Card Stock!
If you are interested in purchasing any of the items I used to make this card you can send me an email, leave a comment or purchase it online here !

Cased from the Catty!

This is my version from page 22 of the Main Stampin Up Catalog! They did a gift bag but I just went for a card!
This card was done with the Grown With Love Bundle! I stamped the flowers and stems and also die cut the flowers out. I didnt want the sentiment that came with the stamp so I put a bow on top.
The whole stamp was stamped with Wild Wasabi (I think) and the I stamped the flowers in Berry Burst before I die cut them.
These little bows I put over the sentiment are so cute! The flower pot is stamped in Pool Party and then die cut.
The original image in the catalog I believe is stamped in Pool Party but it looks a lot darker than mine!
I used the brick embossing folder on vellum and added some of the new Berry Burst crinkled ribbon!

Happy Stamping!

You Move Me!

I just love these papers! They are from the Petal Garden DSP pack. This is a pack of 6 x 6 papers.
I used the You Move Me and Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp sets.
The coordinating card stock colors are Sweet SugarPlum and Rich Razzleberry.  The For You is in the Mini Treat Bag die set which I also used for the card.
At first I just used the Move Me thinlits for framing the center of the card. But the Sweet Sugarplum card stock just blended right in with the DSP so I framed it with the Layering Square Framelits and Rich Razzleberry to make it pop out more.
When you see the card in real life it looks like the Hummingbirds are fluttering!
You can get the Move Me thinlits and stamp set in a bundle and save 10%!

I die cut the Poinsettias out of the corners and then ran the whisper white card stock thru the Big Shot with the Holly Embossing Folder. I love this embossing folder!
The little deer and the tree are all from the Card Front Builder Thinlit set that goes with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.
The tree is cut out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper!

Lovely As Can Be!

For this card I used the Lovely Words Thinlits and Lovely Inside and Out Stamp set. You can get these two items as a bundle for 10% off.
I also used the new Ruffled Embossing Folder. It is one of the 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing folders.  So you get a really deep impression! If you want an even deeper impression you can spritz your papers with water first and then run it thru the embossing folder.
I have used Blushing Bride Card Stock, with Bundle of Love Specialty DSP which has a nice gold finish on some of the pages.
I have also cut the lovely image out with Gold Foil paper!

Life Happens!

Here is another card with the great Coffee Cafe Suite! For the foam on this cup of coffee, I used the Sweetened Condensed Milk technique.
You can either paint Sweetened Condensed Milk on your image after you stamp it. Or you can pour some on a couple of paper towels and use it as an ink pad and stamp with it.
After you get the SCM where you want it you heat it like you would when embossing and then add some embossing powder to seal it a little and heat it again!
I think it worked perfect on my coffee!!

Fab Flamingo!

This card is a little out of my normal range of cards. It was totally not what I was going for but thats okay. You have to step out of your box every once in awhile right??
I stamped the flamingo on watercolor paper with Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst. Then I spritzed it with water.  I stamped the background with Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo using the Touches of Texture stamp set and spritzed it also.
I then added some rhinestones and enamel dots!
Happy Stamping!
