Triple Layer Birthday


I made this card and liked it so much, I made 5 more.  I had never done a triple layer card before, but I love the way it turned out!  I did 2 in Primrose Petals, 2 in Raspberry Ripple and 2 in Gumball Green.  Very pretty.  I wish I had taken a picture of the other 2 colors, but I didn't.  Sorry.

Stamps:  Ivy & Blossoms
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, Primrose Petals
Ink:  Primrose Petals
Misc:  none

I hope you have a very safe, happy and prosperous New Year!!!  See ya' in 2013 in blogland!

Mr Frosty


I made this card to honor the Featured Stamper over on SCS.  She is Sabrina (cook22) on SCS.  I don't know why only part of the photo is showing on my picture today.  I got a new computer for Christmas, and I'm still learning all about it.  I may have done something wrong......LOL!

Anyway, the snowman image is from the stamp set "Holly Jolly Greetings" from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  I stamped him, then cut him out and popped him up on the tag. 

Stamps:  Holly Jolly Greetings
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, Cherry Slush, Forest Green, DSP
Ink:  Palette Noir Black
Misc:  brad, rhinestone, snow flake punch, Palette Noir pens

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peak at my card today!

Happy Stamping!

Birdie Birthday


This is the other card I made for my client's celebrating birthdays in January.  I used several different stamp sets from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  The main image is from the stamp set "Tweet That".  The little bird images are from the set "Christmas Selections".  I love how the little birds match the birds in the main image!  It really makes it easy to make your own background papers that coordinate perfectly!  The sentiment if from the stamp set "Pansy Riot".  Here's all the details:

Stamps:  Tweet That, Christmas Selections, Pansy Riot (sentiment)
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, China Blue Eyes, Dark Night Navy by MFP
Ink:  Palette Noir Black, Night of Navy
Misc:  Diamond Glaze (for the water in the bird bath) Copics

I hope you like my card today.  Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I created. 

Happy Stamping!

This stamp set is just a perfect description for me!!!  I can't do anything until I've had my coffee, so I couldn't wait to use this stamp set!  I used the bean stamp and stamped the background for my gatefold card.  I then stamped the coffee cups on Snow Storm Smooth with Not Quite Navy ink and adhered the panel to the left side of the card.  I sponged around the sentiment and popped it up on the left side with pop dots.  Viola' a quick card.

Oh, Deer


First and foremost, I must say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the horrific shootings in CT yesterday. 

I'm so sorry that I haven't been able to post for the past couple of weeks!!!  Things have been so busy at work, and we had our Christmas open house last weekend, with about 50 guests.  I took off Friday to get ready for the open house on Saturday night.  I then spent Sunday putting things back away and resting a little bit.  We spent the two previous weekends decorating the house and Chirstmas tree.  Wow, it makes me tired just thinking about it! LOL

My card today is for the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS.  My inspiration was a plate with a reindeer head on it.  I immediately thought of this cute little mini set called "Oh, Deer" by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

Here's the details on my card:

Stamps:  Oh, Deer
Paper:  Snow Storm Smooth, Always Artichoke, unknown DSP
Ink:  Early Espresso
Misc:  ribbon, pearls, Copics

Our blog hop also starts on Tuesday, the 17th.  I hope you'll stop by each day for the hop!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Saturday.

Happy Stamping!

Speedy Fox challenge~~1 layer, 2 colors, 3 embellishments


Today's challenge for Speedy Fox and Friends is a recipe card: 1 Layer, 2 Colors & 3 Embelllishments. I used one layer of card stock, and my 2 colors are yellow and green for my image and my 3 embellishments are the 3 sunflower buttons. This was a really fun card to make, and I may do a few more similiar to this. Only thing is, I used all my sunflower buttons and don't know that I can find any more. I guess I'll have to be on the lookout for more buttons.
Stamps: Bring on the Sun, Buried Treasure (sentiment)
Paper: Snow Storm Smooth
Ink: Palette Charcoal
Misc: Buttons
Please join us this week for this fun challenge.
