Baby Shower Gift!

Hello! I havent been around much lately because I have been working on this project for a baby shower gift for a co-worker. Also I have been getting projects ready for our stamping retreat at the beach next weekend.
I made 25 of these cards. 20 for the gift and 5 for my stash. I mostly cased this card right off the Verve website gallery. My boss decided at the last minute to have this baby shower so I was in a hurry. As it is I am about 4 days late from the shower. I also made a coordinating gift box to put the cards in. I messed up on the inside of one of the cards so I just peeled off the outside and used it on the gift box. I used Verve stamps Practically Perfect and Circular Sayings. I changed the ribbon a little bit from the original card and added the thanks at the top. These are thankyou cards for the mother of the baby to give out. I also used su Pink Pirroutte, copic markers, and my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder.
I added liquid pearls on her necklace to look like a real pearl necklace. If you would like to see the original card you can check it out on the Verve gallery.
I wont be showing many projects for about a week. I will be spending this week grocery shopping, cleaning and making cupcakes for the weekend. My penpal Lynn is coming out to visit. (HI Lynn!!) We have never met in person so I am really excited and we are going we our friend Alice (HI Alice!!) to her beach house.
We will be eating way to much, watching movies, sight seeing and of course STAMPING!
Have a great week and happy stamping!

Put Your Big Girl Panties On!

This was just a fun quick card I did. I wanted to keep it simple. Kati asked why would I want to keep it simple? Put more stuff on it, but I decided not to. I've had this set for about a year. It is from Gina K Designs.
I used the kaleidescope ds paper from su. Also tempting turquoise cs. My nesties. I put two sayings on the front cuz I love them together. They both came with the set. Then I added some ribbon and I rhinestone. Easy Peasy.
Happy Stamping!

Spoil Yourself Silly!

I started this card last sunday but couldnt figure out what to put at the bottom of the card. Then I remembered this Penny Black saying from the bubbly set. "Its your day, spoil yourself silly." I thought it went good with the bathtub.
The paper is from a pack I think I got at Target. Its all pink, black and cream. I love the colors
I paper pieced the bathtube and the colored it with copic markers and glittered the flowers.
The cardstock is all su and is pretty in pink and basic black.
Enjoy your day and Happy Stamping!

Another Verve Card!

Here's another verve card with a set I have had for about a year and not used. I pretty much cased this off of verves gallery also and again I am sorry I dont have the name of the great person who made the original card. I changed all the papers and added the sentiment.
I used all su papers. Bella Birds ds papers and then pink piroutte and bordering blue cs. I colored it with copic markers and used diamond glaze on the balloons. The had and balloons are cut out and mounted with mounting tape and the ribbons are all su also.
I used the scallop border punch from stampin up and my nesties. Liquid peals are in little beads along the bottom.
This might be the 4th card for stamp club on saturday but I am not sure. Katis car and all her possessions are to be delivered tomorrow so our house will be utter chaos but oh well, thats life right?! It is going to be one busy weekend!
Happy stamping!

Working With Not Enough Sleep!

Well, I had planned on posting a card everyday this week. But yesterday I worked 11 hours. Then had to come home and feed the family. Towards the end of the day I was asked to work today which was supposed to be my day off, so that meant getting up at 5 this morning. So I went to bed early last night. This is my third week in a row of working my day off. So I have been pretty tired lately. I also woke up at 1:15 this morning. I couldnt go back to sleep so finally at 2 I got up and cleaned my stamp room tables. They were a real mess since I made 4 cards on sunday and didnt put anything away. Finally, I went back to bed at 3am and slept until 4:40. So I am dragging today.
So, anyway on to my card for today. I used a hero arts stamp I have had for years and never used. The sentiment is from the papertrey ink Green Thumb set. I also used three su punches and my nesties. I colored it with copic markers and added some dew drops for dimension. The papers are su baja breeze and dusty durango with dusty durango ribbon and my minds eye pretty please ds paper.
Thanks for looking!
Happy Stamping!

Beautiful Butterfly

I cased this card a little from a sample on the verve website. I dont remember which of the girls did it but I changed the papers and didnt put the big bow on it and also changed the flowers. I used one of the basic grey eva papers and one of the basic grey lemonade papers. I think they match pretty well. The green paper matches the green in the eva paper. I also used stampin up kiwi kiss and mauve mist. The flowers came from several different places. The shimmery ones came from Taylored Expressions online store and the others are some misc ones from Michaels.
I used the Verve Beautiful Kindness set. I also glittered the butterfly and colored it with copic markers. I stamped the swirly thing with kiwi kiss ink.
Happy Stamping!

Froggie Birthday!

Tomorrow is our baby girls 22nd birthday! It is the 1st birthday we have been with her in 5 years. She left home to go to bootcamp 1 week before her 18th birthday. We went shopping today and she got a new watch and some beautiful glass earrings. Actually we got two pairs of earring with different colors so we can share them. One pair is green and yellow in the glass and the green is the perfect color for her birthstone. The other pair is black, gold and pink in the glass. They are very pretty also.
For the card I was coloring this frog a week ago and she really liked it and so I decided to make it into a birthday card for her. I didnt show the inside but I used a Hoppy Birthday sentiment and stamped it three times to make it bigger and used a flying frog from a Gina K Designs set.
For the outside this is a whippersnapper stamp. I used some balloons also from the Gina K set.
I decorated the card with some flowers and candy dots and colored the frog and balloons with my copic markers.
Happy Stamping!

This is the third card we will be doing at stamp club next week. I love these colors together. It is all stampin up. Flight of the Butterflies(stamps). DS papers Cottage Wall. CS papers black and white. Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and basic black inks. I used the butterfly punch. It works perfect with this set of course. Cutting out the butterflies would never look this good. I also added some rhinestones, the only thing not stampin up on this card.

I'm back!

I know I havent posted anything for awhile. With Kati being home and working overtime at work, I have been really busy.
She is partially settled. We are waiting for her things to be delivered hopefully today. Had a few issues with her car being picked up. That will hopefully be today also.
I have done some stamping. Not a lot. I did a scrapbook for my coworker but didnt get any pictures taken.
I will be posting a new card in a minute.
Happy Stamping!
