Bella Week #4

Here is card #4 of my bella week. I know I just did this card last week but I change the papers and colors. Also I added ribbons instead of the paper strips and taylor dots. This layout was a tayloredexpression cupcake challenge. You can look back a week or so to get the exact #. Which reminds me I need to zip over to Taylors blog and check out her cupcake sketch this today, since it is friday!
Happy Friday!

Bella of the Week Day 2

Good Tuesday Morning to Everyone!
Boy has it been cold here. Its only in the 30's but the wind chill must be dropping the temp quite a bit cuz its cold!
Here's my second bella for this week. I like her because I think the black really sets off all the colors. She is ready for a party with cupcake in hand. Thats my kind of girl.
Have a good day and stay warm.

Bella Week

Hello Everyone!
Well, the weekend is over and tomorrow is
monday. We are having our postponed Christmas
party at work tho. (It was postponed due to snow.) So that will start the week off with some

I have decided to make this week a Stamping Bella week. I will be putting a new Bella card on here for every posting this week. Probably not every day since I only have 5 and this is the 1st one.
I made this card for an invite to a stamping club at my house next month. I thought it would be a fun card and very approriate for a stamp club. What do you think?
Supplies: Stamps-stampingbella and bella sentiment(it didnt have a name on the package)
Ink: Basic Black (I use adirondack pitch black for copics) and copic markers.
Paper: Su pink passion and summer sun. Also DS Bobunny Teen Chic Squared.
Embellishments: Misc ribbon (dont remember from where) su punches and some dew drops and cool rhinestone flowers I got from my favorite local scrapbook store.
Thanks for looking!

Another Cupcake Card

Hello! Happy friday! Oops, I guess its not friday for everyone but it is my friday! Yeah!
I made this card with the new Karen Lockhart violet cupcake stamp. I am a little disappointed it doesnt show as much as I would like tho. Dont you just love her stamps? And what better place is there to get them then at Ellen Hutsons store? Shes the best.
Supplies used were Basic Grey Euphoria, stampin up certainly celery and retired eggplant. (I really stocked up on that before it retired.) I also used papertrey ink's plum pudding satin ribbon. I added some crystal effects with glitter on the flower but that doesnt show up very well.
My stamps are violet cupcake and happy birthday by Karen Lockhart. Oh, also some dew drops.
Happy stamping!

Hello Everyone! Happy Monday!
This is a card I did this weekend with cupcakeabella by stamping bella. Isnt she cute? Wouldnt it be great if that was really how cupcakes went to the hips and not the real way. I love cupcakes and its alot less fattening to buy cupcake stamps then the actual cupcakes. When our daughter was home visiting for the holidays she made some yummy cupcakes with pink cream cheese frosting. They were the best. She left me her frosting recipe. It has the actual heavy whipping cream in it and it is sooooooo yummy. I wish she was here to make me some more cuz I miss her like craaaazy.
See you tomorrw. Happy stamping!

I am making birth annoucements for my niece as a baby gift. I am planning on printing the full annoucement on it for her so she wont have to fill them out herself.
I hope she likes them. I am using some of my Gina K stamps for the very 1st time.
I also made a couple of other cards this weekend I will post later this week. One is with cupcakeabella from stampinbg bella and the other is with one of the new karen lockhart stamps I got from that is the cupcake with the little violets in it.

Big Shot and Doctor Bag


I had day 2 of 3 stamping day today. I dont know how tomorrow will go. My hubby and friends were supposed to go riding to the Gorge but there are supposed to be 50 mile an hour winds, so they might not go. Of course I can still stamp but its not the same as having the house to myself. Also today after stamping with my sister, I went to the hospital to see my new grandniece. She was born yesterday. She was 2 1/2 weeks early. She weighs almost 6 lbs and is adorable. Her name is Brooklyn Grace. I love her name. I will post a picture of her and my 10yr old grandniece who is Brooklyns cousin tomorrow. I will also have a picture or two of cards I have worked on this weekend. I have almost finished 4 sets.

Anyway, about my title for today. I am selling my bigshot. I bought it because I was told by two separate ladies that the sizzix dies would not fit into my cuttlebug. But guess what? They do. The long ones wont but I dont use them. So( a light in my head just came on) I will sell them too. I also have the doctors bag. I had to have it cuz it was pink and black, checkered and polka dots. All the great things in one. But they are just all sitting on the floor gathering dust and I figure it will be easier to sell if I sell them together.

So if anyone is interested just leave me a comment with your email address and we can discuss prices. I will have to figure out what I want to sell it for.

See you tomorrow and happy stamping.

I forgot Something!

Oh Yeah! I forgot to mention when I am stamping for the next three days, I will be using my new stamping bella stamps, karen lockhart stamps and my cupcakes from emma's paperie.
Now I know I wont sleep tonight.


Sorry, No Pics today!

I dont have any cards to show today. I am excited. I have the next three days off and plan on lots of stamping. I am stamping with my bff Alice tomorrow. Then on saturday I am going to stamp with my sister. I also have a gift card for Craft Warehouse and a full punch card for my favorite scrapbooking store in Salem ( where my sis lives). The scrapbooking store now carrys Nestibilites!!!!! So with a full punch card you get $15 off any none sales items. So that pays for more than 1/2 a set of nesties. There are still so many I need!!! Then on sunday my hubby is going on a motorcycle ride with his buddies. ( I know he's crazy its the middle of winter. But he is also one of those guys that wears shorts all year, so what can I say.) But that means I have the whole house to myself and get to stamp stamp stamp!!!!! Yeah! I do have to do the laundry but the rest of the house work is done. I hope I can sleep tonight. I feel like those two little kids on that disneyland commercial that are too excited to sleep cuz they are leaving for disneyland. Except I have my disneyland in my own home. How lucky am I!

I hope you all get time to stamp this weekend also.

Happy Stamping!

Oh, I also used crystal effects from su on my inchies and threw on some glitter but it literally looks like I threw it on, so that didnt work quite the way I wanted but it still adds some bling to it.

Hannah's Snowbunny

Hello Everyone!
Well, its monday and work is done for the day, so we are into another week. This is a card I did using Hannahs snowbunny. Isnt she cute. She likes pink as much as I do. The card ended up being 5 x 7. I cut a piece of scratch paper the size of the plaid layer to see how everything fit before I did anything else. I usually make 6-10 cards at a time. Sometimes I just go crazy and start cutting everything and then say ops, this isnt going to work.
I hope you all like her. I glittered her hood, both pair of gloves and the heart by the word ski bunny.

Supplies: SU cs basic black, pink passion. Heidi Grace Valentine's Day Love story designer paper.

TECC48/Taylors challenge

My 1st sketch challenge. This is from tayloredexpressions #TECC48. I liked going by a sketch. Then you can just pick papers and a stamp and start working.

I usually dont do that because I dont like my handwriting, but it worked out ok this time.

Supplies: stamping bella. Inks: Pitch Black. Papers: Daisy Bucket Perfect Harmony collection. Misc brad and flower.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone. Welcome to my blog. I have been thinking about a blog and even tried one about a year ago. But I am not very blog literate. My wonderful hubby who is creating his own blog is helping me. I am hoping to start displaying my work on this blog but we will see how it goes.

I hope your new year brings great things for you.
