Another Stippled Blossom!

Here is another card I cased from Pinterest! I love these colors together. They are Pool Party and Island Indigo. I added some ribbon, glitter and stones in the center of the flowers. I love this stippled blossom set and this hardwood floor background stamp is becoming one of my favorites also.
All supplies are stampin up except the ribbon and the dies used for the pieces under the flowers.
Happy Stamping!

Another Gina K Designs Cased Card!

This is another card I copied from Gina K Designs. I did change this one a bit. Once you change a few things you just keep going and almost make it your own.
The poppies are from one of their Stately Flowers set. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
The background plaid papaer is from stampin up and the printed paper is using stampin ups Dictionary background stamp. I have some fabric washi tape under the ribbon and added a bow, some rhinestones and glitter.
This image is colored with copic  markers.
Happy Stamping!

See Thru Card!

I saw this card on Papertrey ink, make it monday or something like that. I am still deciding about it.
You cant really put white or anything on the inside or it will mess up the outside and if you write on the inside it will show thru also.
But the dies and flower stamps are all papertrey ink.

Another Stippled Blossoms Card!

This is another card I cased from Pinterest! Don't you just love Pinterest??? I sure do!
Can you see my pink and white polka dot tea cups in the background?? I love those. I went to Teas Me in Hillsboro with my BFF Joan for her birthday and picked up these teacups for myself.
I have a whole china cabinet full of tea pots and have never used them. I am going to have to have afternoon tea here at home some day! I will just have a little tea party!!
Anyway on to my card. I used the SU Stippled Blossoms set. This set is so much fun and so elegant.
I also used the border embossing folder and die from su. Love those too!! I dont know why I dont use them more often!! They add such a nice border to any card.
I believe I used pink pirouette and melon mambo for the roses. I cut out the roses and used foam tape.
I believe this whole card except the rhinestones is stampin up.
I made this same card only with out the rhinestones and it turned out really nice to but I gave it to Kati for her birthday so I dont have a picture of it to show!

Another Pinterest Find!

This card was done with Stippled Blossoms and the hardwood floor stamp from SU. I love how the hardwood floor stamp looks. It really adds to the card.
This is another card I cased from Pinterest. It is using Canteloupe Crisp and Crumb Cake. Plus some Early Espresso. The colors together are really pretty!
All the punches used on this card are SU.

Flower Patch Bundle!

This is a card I cased off pinterest. Sorry I dont remember from who. But they even had a great video to go with it.
It is using the SU Flower Patch stamp set and matching dies. It is the first real clear stamp set from SU I have used. I really like it.
I die cut the flowers out first and then stamped them on the die cut pieces. I am finding that I like to do it that way more and more often. Although SU dies are easy to stamp and then punch also.
This card was simple and fun to do!

Have a Purr-fect day!

This is a digital stamp I purchased quite awhile ago. I dont even remember where I got it now. I found a card with it on it on pinterest. I finally used it!!!
These are some more new papers I got when I was at the stamp store in Tigard. I love gingham and flowers. They are my favs and go perfect together. I used Cantaloupe Crisp cardstock which I dont use very often and used it twice last week.
I colored the kitty with copics and fussy cut him. I used some Elizabeth Craft design dies on the leaf and flowers and added a pearl to the center. The sentiment is from a new stamp set I just recieved from Papertrey Ink.
Happy Stamping!

Wedding Pictures!

Well, the wedding has come and gone! Here are a few wedding pictures that Kati sent to my phone.
My sister in law took the official pictures. But we dont have them yet. She took over 1800 photos!
Doesnt she make the most beautiful bride??
Actually, I just got the top picture this morning. That might be one of the official ones that were taken.
They went out after the wedding and took them at other locations.

Yellow Roses!

I pulled this rose stamp out of a set I have had for a long time. I think this card could work for almost anything. Birthday, anniversary, sympathy, thinking of you, thank you. Whatever you want realy.
I colored it with copic markers and inked around the edges. Added some ribbon. I used a new border punch from Martha Stewart across the bottom and used some new papers I had just gotten at the stamp store when I took a class.
Happy Stamping!

Another Wedding Project!

Only two more days until the wedding. The last couple of days I have been working on these place cards and the holders. I looked at several places to find the holders and no one seems to carry them anymore so I decided to make my own. I got a package of round discs at Michaels, a wooden dowel and some clothes pins. Kati had made a really cute board that says Mr & Mrs and painted it with this purple paint and decorated it so I used the same flowers and paint to make these match it.
I even used the purple glitter paint we used on top of the plain purple paint to spray the papers to make them shimmer and add some sparkle.The sparkle doesnt show up alot in this picture but it is there.

What a Life!

Here are our two kitties. This was the other day when it was almost 100 degrees here. They just lay
out in the heat for hours. The bottom picture is in the house. For some reason Keke loves to be under the blankets.
They are like little babies, they look so sweet and innocent when they are sleeping!

Under The Dome!

This is a card I made this last weekend. I took a class at the stamp store in Tigard. Two classes in one month! Thats a record lately.
This are new dies called Susan's Gardens ( I think). The class took 2 1/2 hours. Half of it was making the flower. Part of it was waiting for everyone to catch up before we could go on to the next step.
It was a fun class. The teacher was really nice. She was from London so I got to hear her great accent also. The two white spots are reflections of the light on the dome so they really arent part of the card.
We also recieved a die cut tag, an embossed piece to match the front of the card and a pattern to make a box to fit this card into. I havent made that yet, but this card is more like a gift than just a card.

Flipping Out!

Here are the cards I made out of the sea of flipflops I showed yesterday. I got my inspiration from a card on pinterest . My card doesnt really look much like it. The layout is the same tho, but thats good right. You get your idea from somewhere else and then make it your own?!
I used the Flipping Out stamp set and matching dies from Papertrey Ink. This is the birthday card to go with the gift and then I made 6 matching cards that say "Life is better in flipflops". I have to totally agree with that. Especially the nike ones that I call pillow tops. They are the best.
Anyway, I put the 6 cards in a gift box and wrapped it with a bow.
I hope my birthday friend loves the cards. I think she will.

A Sea of Sandals!

I am making a gift set of cards for a friend for her birthday. We both love flip flops. I bought some stamps and dies from Papertrey ink. I love them! But you know how after a few time thru your die cutting maching for some reason the paper always seems to stick in the die?? Will these dies dont have any little holes in them to poke them out. So my hubby fixed that for me! He drilled little hole in the dies for me. Now I can poke them out!! Yeah!
More to come on these cards!

Wedding Card!

This is the card I made for the wedding shower for Kati. Her and her fiance have a thing about penquins and how they mate for life. So when Elizabeth Craft Designs came out with these dies this month I had to have them.
I used the ECD bench for the pop it card and then the dies for the penquins. I used some purple glitter paper some white and silver chevron striped paper also.
I made a little veil for the bride and put flowers everywhere. The front is alot simpler and just says Best Wishes but was having problems downloading pictures so didnt show it.
Happy Stamping!
