This will be Aprils calender for next year. The blank spot on the UR is for the month calender.
I found the sparkly glitter paper at Micheals. I went in there last weekend and thats all I bought. One slice of glitter paper and some Dots for eating. I couldnt believe it. Since I have been getting rid of some much unused stuff in my stamp room I havent wanted to buy more stuff.
So I used this LOTV Mermaid stamp, colored it with copic markers and then ran it thru my Xryon machine and glittered the whole image. I layered it with some card stock and added some flowers.
I used the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the layout of the card. I also added some bubble like dewdrops randomly around the card. This whole card is much prettier in real life.
Happy Stamping!

February LOTV Calender!

This is my calender for February of next year! I dont have the calender yet. No one seems to carry them this far ahead.
I think this little bear that is hunting butterflys is so cute.
I colored him with copic markers and added some glitter. The punch along the top is a martha stewart punch that came with about 5 different butterfly punches.
Happy Stamping!

Stamp and Create Magnolia Blog Challenge

This is my card for this months challenge at stamp and create with magnolia challenge . You can hop over there and check out all the great samples from the other design team members. They have some great ones.
Also if you go to the stamp and create store you can get some great deals on magnolia stamps and lots of other great items at really good prices too. The shipping time is also amazing!
For my card I used Tilda w/Burger. I colored her with copic markers. The theme for this month is summertime. So I went with a BBQ theme. I used some papers from Best Creations with lots of cooking things on them. Bright and cheery colors too.
The greeting Whats cooking! is also a magnolia stamp!

At A Glimpse!

I totally cased this card from Taylored Expressions Gallery . I bought all the stuff for this card months ago just because of this sample card on their newsletter. All the dies and stamps are from Taylored Expressions and the papers are again the new SU papers. The Gingham ds papers and the new strawberry slush cardstock. I love this color. But the ink looks almost identical to Rose Red to me tho. I colored the image with copic markers and added some rhinestones and pearl. The butterfly is actually martha stewart but the rest are TE.
Happy Stamping!

Love & Sympathy!

I had to make  sympathy cards for some people since I lost a beloved uncle that I had just gone to visit in March.
I just made the same one to send to a few favorite people!
I used the SU Love and Sympathy set. Also some of the new ds papers. The Gingham collection. I love gingham and was a little disappointed there wasnt more in this set due to the name of it.
I colored the stamp with my SU markers (havent used those for along time!). Then stamped it on Neenah paper. I used my oval nesties to cut it out and a border oval with Island Indigo.
I dont have a Island Indigo marker so I used Not Quite Navy. It matches really good I think.
I also added some Island Indigo ruffled ribbon and some yellow dew drops.
I added a doily behind it for a little extra character on the card.
My picture didnt turn out quite as well as I liked but oh well I guess.
I dont normally make sympathy cards because they are depressing but I had his set on hand just in case!
Happy Stamping!

Puss N Boots

This little cutie is called Puss N Boots.
I just love this little kitty.
I decided to go pink and black with it.
My absolute favorite color combo.
This is for August. Not really summery colors. Well, maybe a little. Kind of makes me think of watermelons.
I colored it with copic markers and  a sketch but of course it is closed already so oh well right???
Happy Stamping!

Lotv Calender

Here is another LOTV calender I made. This one is for october. Isnt this little guy cute??
I found some fall papers to go with his sunflower.
He is colored with copic markers. For the flowers I used some from Craft Warehouse layered with some punched flowers to match the papers and then added a big rhinestone on the top.
The sentiment came with the little bear also.
Happy Stamping!

June LOTV Calender!

So you know Alice and I have been making calenders together for years. The last couple of years of been Magnolias. This year we decided to do LOTV's. Our year goes from June to May. So here is my June calender. Done just a week before June started. But poor Alice doesnt have hers yet because I have been sick so we couldnt get together yesterday!
I love this little LOTV stamp. I think the bunny and the bear are so cute together. I got these new papers and love the colors. There was a big sale at Craft Warehouse over Memorial Day weekend and I picked them up. They go perfect with SU Summer Starfruit CS. Not much goes with it but every once in awhile I find something that goes perfect with it like this. I colored the image with copics and added some flowers.

I have also been really busy selling some unused stamp sets and punches on ebay. I have been having lots of fun with it. I love it when my phone makes a ca-ching sound every time I have a sale.
I have sold lots of stuff but still have lots to go. I am starting with lots of wood mounted and some clear mounted su stamps and misc punches and am moving on from there.

Happy Stamping!
