The colors are Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry.
I splattered the background a bit with a marker and gold Wink of Stella.

Fun Name Tags!

These are the name tags I made for everyone at the Holiday Premier Party last Saturday. I think that everyone liked them.
For the prize drawings, I had everyone open their goodie bags and unwrap these. Then they had to add up their totals on the letters and the one with the most numbers got to pick a prize first. You would think the one with the longest name would have the highest score. But it didnt work that way. One of the highest scores only had a 4 letter name!
These were really easy and fun to make. I already had a whole bunch of scrabble pieces.
Happy Stamping!

Case(E) This Sketch #241!

I made this card using the sketch from Cas(E) This Sketch Challenge . I just love the pumpkins with the Gourd Goodness stamp set. It is a two step photopolymer stamp set. It looks so realistic. I used Tangerine Tango and Peekaboo Peach. It is a really easy set to match up. The greetings is from this set, and is stamped in Early Espresso.
I have used the Painted Autumn Designer Series papers, gold, copper and champagne foil papers, with Early Espresso, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstock.
The die cut leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the Pumpkin is from the Patterned Pumpkin thinlits.
I have also added a heart from the Corrugated Elements and added a little Glitter Enamel Dot in the center.
If you would like to order any products for this card or anything else you can visit me here , email me or leave me a comment and I would be happy to contact you!

Merry Patterns!

I made this card with a new stamp set called Merry Patterns! It is available for a limited time only and only with a $300 purchase.
I used the sketch from sketch #482 from the Sketch Saturday challenge. This is a fun set to play with but as you can see you have to be really careful not to rock your block at all. I love how easy the two step stamping is. First you stamp your outline and then fill it in.
I've used Be Merry DSP, Garden Green and Whisper White cardstock, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green ink pads, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and Cherry cobbler double stitched ribbon.

Seasonal Chums!

Isn't this little deer just the cutest?? It is from the Seasonal Chums stamp set. The tree and snowflake come with this stamp set also.
It is originally made to make tags and the stamps have fronts and backs and fold over when you cut them out. But I only wanted the front of this little deer. So I cut my stamp apart so I didnt have to fight with the rest of the stamp. Then later when I want both the front and back I can still place them together and use them that way also. I do this quite a bit with my stamps.
I have seen quite a few versions of this card but this is my version of it.
It is also using Merry Little Christmas designer papers, stitched shape framelits, and the circle shape framelits.
I just love the Stitched Shaped Framelits. They are always my first choice when I go for a shaped die. But my sweet daughter has been helping me with my die cutting a lot this month and she isn't too found of them!
I colored the little reindeer with watercolor pencils and wink of stella. My new favorite way to color.
The black border is punched with the Ticket Tear Punch and I have wrapped the Black Shimmer Ribbon around the card!
For anyone coming to my Holiday Premier Party on the 30th or October 3rd, they will be seeing another one of the Seasonal Chums!!
Happy Stamping!

Year Of Cheer DSP!

I found this card over at Patty Bennetts blog Patty stamps . Patty is a very inspirational person. I was lucky enough to meet her at Onstage last April. I went WAY out of my comfort zone and walked up to her and introduced myself. She was very nice. I just love her projects!
This card is made using the Year of Cheer Designer Papers. I have lots of these papers left over from my explosion boxes. So I was really excited to see Pattys projects!
The stamps on this card are from Watercolor Christmas which we received for free at the Rockaway Retreat I went on last weekend. (I can't believe I have back for a whole week already!!).
The Watercolor Christmas also has a matching kit available which makes 20 cards.
The inks are Island Indigo and Pool Party with Island Indigo and Whisper White cardstock. It is also using this lovely foil snowflakes, (which I also had lots leftover from the explosion boxes.).
This will be one of the cards we will be doing at the Holiday Premier Party on the 30th.
There are still a couple of spots left!
If you would like to order any of these products please send me an email or leave a comment or you can order here .

Box In A Card!

I found a tutorial for this card at Stamp Your Art Out .   I have been seeing these all over lately. It is called a box in a card. I have so many papers left over from the Year of Cheer DSP that I thought I would use it. I have decorated the inside yet but I think the outside is done.
I used the snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits,  I have embossed one of the stamps from the Merry Little Labels stamp set in gold. Then layered it with Gold glimmer paper.
It is a fun little card to make but it won't fit in an envelope.
I also have a gold strip punched out with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.
Happy Stamping!

Painted Harvest Poinsettia!

I love the Painted Harvest Stamp set. It is fun in so many colors. On this card, I stamped it in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler to give it the look of Poinsettias. I couldn't decide what to use as background paper because nothing seemed to go with it.
So I decided to just use it as background paper all by itself. I think it turned out very colorful and cheerful.
I used Garden Green and Whisper White cardstock and then Cherry Cobbler Stitched Ribbon.
For the leaves I used Wild Wasabi and Garden Green, also Crushed Curry for the centers of the flowers. I added some Gold Enamel shapes for a little dimension!
Hope you like my card today!
Happy Stamping!

Seasons Greetings!

This is my version of the card on page 35 LR corner in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog.
I changed it up a bit. I used Smokey Slate, Elegant Eggplant and Silver Foil papers. I also used Silver Edged Ribbon. I love these new ribbons. They come in Gold Edged also and are so elegant.
I have used Snowflake Sentiments Bundle. If you buy the dies and the stamp set you get 10% off.
This is such a great set!!

Pink Flamingos!

I found these adorable slippers in Flamingo Jims at Rockaway Beach when I went there last weekend for a Stampin Up retreat!
We had a great time at the retreat! I had never been to this one before. It s at the Twin Rocks Friends Camp in Rockaway. It is a very nice retreat center.
For my flamingo card, my good friend Joan asked me to make a flamingo christmas card. So this is what I came up with.
The Santa hat from the Santa Suit stamp set and Santa builder die set (or get the bundle for 10% off). It fits perfectly on this card. I used the Fabulous Flamingo set and the Quilted Christmas Designer Papers. I added some snowflakes and rhinestones. I really like how it all came together.
I have another idea for a Flamingo christmas card so stay tuned for that!

Fall Coffee!

I love Gingham and I also love this Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. It is in the new holiday catalog. I really wanted to use this Smoky Slate Gingham ribbon but I couldn't find anything to go with it. Then I had these papers and was looking at them and thought "Wait a Minute!" those pumpkins are Smokey Slate. You know how there are colors in the papers but they aren't listed in the pack?? So I saw my chance to us the ribbon!
So I used the Stitched Shape framelits and the Oval Shapes, also the new Merry Cafe stamp set. The new Merry Cafe stamp set works with the Coffee Cups Framelits. So this all went together perfectly.
I also wrapped the Copper Trim ribbon around my smokey slate ribbon for some more color!
Happy Stamping!

Snow Fun At Main St!

These cute little snow people are going to a class at Main St Stamp and Stationary tomorrow!
This is a fun stamp from Art Impressions called Sparkle & Cheer and they are very cheery!
I just love the sentiment "You make my heart slush!"
I have used some cute Pebbles christmas papers to go with these cute little guys and colored them with my watercolor pencils and wink of stella!
So hope on over to Main St tomorrow and make these fun little guys! (and girls!).

Painted Autumn!

I love this designer series papers. They are called Painted Autumn. I think they are just gorgeous!!
I think this will be the closest to a Thanksgiving card as I will get. There really aren't any sets I can think of this time that actually say Happy Thanksgiving. But I haven't looked very hard either.
I have seen lots of different versions of cards with the sunflowers cut out of the paper. For my card I decided to go with a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches . I always find it so much easier to find a sketch and then go with it when I know what papers and stamps I want to use.
I also added the copper trim ribbon and the Touches of Nature Elements.
Happy Stamping!

Spooky Cat!

I made this card using the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday Challenge! I turned the sketch sideways so my little pumpkins at the bottom are the row of three. Check out their site and you can see the sketch for yourself.
This card is made using the Spooky Cat Bundle. You get a cat punch and a fun stamp set in this bundle. Also there is matching designer papers and you can punch a whole punch of cats right out of the papers. How cool is that?

Painted Harvest!

When I was at the retreat in Union, Wa last week I started stamping this paper. I love this stamp set! It is in the new catalog and is called Painted Harvest! I have seen it stamped in many colors.
So I stamped 4 sheets like this and then this week I put it together into this card.
I punched out the circle in Island Indigo. The flowers are stamped in Island Indigo and Pool Party.
I think these colors come together very nicely. I was just using colors I had with me. So when I did the leaves the only two greens I had were Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. I was a little skeptical but since thats what I had, I went with it. I really like them together also.
The insides of the flowers are Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip.
I added some Crushed Curry Ribbon and also a silver snowflake doily. Since I am using a lot of the gold snowflakes on my explosion box I am going to have a lot of the silver left over.
Its funny what we come up with when we use just what we happen to have on hand at that time or what we have an excess of and want to use up.
All of these great items are available now! Have you seen the new Holiday Catalog yet?? Do you not have one but want one??
Just contact me and we can fix all of that!!

I also used the Merry Little Labels stamp set with the Everyday punch for the cards.

Explosion Box!

Here is my very first Explosion Box! I knew I wanted to do an explosion box but had no clue what I wanted to do or how to do it. So I looked around on Pinterest and found different ways to make them and then changed it up a bit and this is what I came up with.
It was an expensive little box to make. Of course I had to use the most expensive papers and a lot of each.
I combined gold and silver together. I kept thinking of the Christmas song. Silver and Gold or what its called. And there is both silver and gold in the designer papers I used.
I used the new Year of Cheer Designer papers and the new Foil Snowflakes.
This was fun to make once I figured out what I was going to do.
The little cross papers on the inside flaps are pockets. You could put a gift tag, gift card or even some dollar bills in there. Maybe even some pictures. There is also a little box inside the box. You can put some yummy candies or something fun in it!
This is also going to be a project for the Marketplace at Rockaway next week! (Next week, gives me a scare just thinking its next week already and so much to do before then!

Hearts Come Home Bundle!

I can't believe its been about 2 weeks since my last posting! I have been so busy with everything. 
Last weekend was the retreat in Union, WA. It was absolutely amazing. The view was awesome! The weather was awesome! We were in the Chapel at St Andrews Resort. So I guess you could say we were truly blessed!!! LOL!
These cards are made using the Hearts Come Home Bundle. These dies are so awesome you really don't need much else!
The black and white card is cased from Sandi McIver! She does awesome work. If you get the chance you should check out her blog!
The bottom card is cased right out of the new Holiday catalog. And I got the idea for the tag card out of the holiday catalog also and combined it with this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch.
All of the cards were lots of fun to make! The black and white card uses gold foil paper to light up the windows but the bottom card I used Gold Glimmer Paper to light up the windows.
At our retreat it was mostly based around the new Embossing Paste.
So I have used the Embossing Paste and glitter for snow on two of these cards!
If you would like to make these cards, I am having a class next tuesday September 5th.
Also if you would like to order any of these wonderful items just leave me a comment or contact me by email!

Another Purse!

When I made the banner I had to pay several packs of these papers. It is the Whole Lot of Lovely Dsp pack. I wanted to use up some of the other papers and needed a project for next weeks retreat. So I started making this purse. I was thinking I don't know if I'm going to like this. But I actually love the way it turned out.
Plus I have had these pearls forever and they never seem to fit anything I do but I love them for this purse!

It turned out to be a lot of work to make 10 kits for these so I hope they go will at the retreat!

Happy 30th!

Here is a birthday card I made for Katis 30th birthday coming up on the 10th. She said I'm not 30 I'm only 29! I told her I would make it 29 from now on!

Each little flower has a rhinestone in the center.
I also used the Number of Years bundle for the Happy Birthday and 30th plus the number 30.

Feathery Friends!

I had to go to the bathroom at Kohls the other day and it is back by the Hallmark cards. On the way out I saw a cute card and it made me think of this little bird.
This little bird comes from a hostess set called Feathery Friends. There are two cute birds and two flowers. I can't remember what else. I stamped the little bird and flowers and then colored them with my SU Watercolor Pencils and my clear Wink of Stella!
So if you place a $150 order you can get this adorable set for free! You can place an order thru my online store or just leave me a comment!
