Work Seminar at Disneyland!

Last weekend we had a seminar for work. It was at Disneyland. I was so nervous for so many reasons but it turned out really good.
One on CEO's or something like that from Disney was the main speaker and he was great!
Had a great time at Disney also. The bottom picture is a few of the girls I was hanging out with from other offices. It was a fun time!
Gotta do some stamping!

Tissue Paper!

This card got its crinkly look by using tissue paper. You stamp your image and greeting on the tissue paper, crinkle it up and then glue it to your card stock.
There is a full tutorial on U-tube under brandys cards.
I used SU Field Flowers and decided to do some sympathy cards and used this little greeting. Also from SU but I cant remember the name!
Happy Stamping!

Pretty Rhinestones!

So I showed these flowers earlier in the week. Here is the finished product. I used the stem from SU's Field Flowers and also the greeting. The Greeting is a little hard to read but when you are looking at the card IRL it shows up alot better.
This card is actually my own design. I havent done one of those for awhile!!
I love these rhinestones and I was able to get 6 cards out of the three packages with these two left over.
I know, I know, I can hear everyone saying "how are you going to send that, thats going to cost extra"
But you know what! I figure if the person you are sending it to is special which I think they would be to send a card like this then they are worth a few extra cents.
I also would send this in a little box I just got for cards so it wouldnt get squished and the rhinestones broken!

Happy Stamping!

Punch Happy!

I recieved a card like this for my birthday last week. It was paper pierced around the flower but I tried 4 different times and each time it was too close in one spot and wrinkled so I gave up.
I cased the card, so I cant give credit to the original person that made it.
I used the blossoms, pansy and butterfly punch. Also the Flower shop set for the flower, Blooming with Kindness for the sentiment and Papillion PotPourri for the butterfly.
The butterfly is glittered and the pink polka dot paper is glitter paper so it is glittered already.
There are those pretty flowers again, I did an awesome card with them also so stayed tuned for that!
Happy Stamping!

Flying Butterfly!

This is another card I found at I love the way the butterfly swings. I added another element to the card I saw on someone elses blog awhile ago but cant remember where.
The butterfly is stamped on watercolor paper and then I used re inkers and a aquabrush to color it. After that I added glossy accents to the whole butterfly and glitter on top while it was still wet.
It swings when the card moves with a butterfly on each side that is attached with fishing line so you cant hardly see what is holding it there.
I couldnt decide if I wanted to color the flowers on the piece that butterfly was attached to but decided not to because I didnt want to it to take away from the butterfly.
Happy Stamping!

Back to the Basics!

I have really gotten back to the basics with this card. I have been tired of coloring for awhile but recently have found a ton of great SU demonstrator blogs and U-tube videos and samples on pinterest so I have really stepped back a bit from the really involved cards with lots of coloring and flowers and all of that. I have probably mentioned Brandys cards . She has the most awesome videos. This card I found one of her videos with a black and white card she did I loved but then I went and looked at the other cards. She did a black and white challenge. I found a different card and then I ended up wtih this card that was a little different then either one of the cards I was looking at. She did do a cool video also with a card box to go with it I may have to try to make.
I used the Delicate Doilies set (I think its called.) and stamped the top half of a white card base with my favorite black ink. Then the bottom half is a black strip ran thru the cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I then put some black and white polka dot ribbon and then one of my sincere salutations greetings (love that set) and stamped it in one of the frames from Four Frames set and used foam tape to attach it to the card. Just to give it some sparkle I added a few rhinestones to the centers of the large doilies but I dont think you can see it in these photos. I did matching envelopes also.
Those pretty flowers in the front are ones I found at Michaels today in their $1 bins but actually their $1 bins are now $1.50 bins. but you get about 12 of these flowers for that price and as you can see they are a nice size. I am thinking of a cool card for them. So we will see how that turns out.
So no designer papers for this card. Just black and white card stock some ribbon stamps, embossing folder and one color of ink.
I think these cards would be pretty in any color.
Happy Stamping!
