Heart Thank You

I loved this card on SCS. I had to add the glitter and brads. The hearts are from a complimentary stamp set from SU! to Demonstrators. I finally got the hang of using a sponge for the edges of paper. I know, I know... How long have I been doing this?

Please Specify

Stamps: Doodle this, so many sayings
Paper: Rose red, pretty in pink, chocolate chip, whisper white
Ink: same
Accessories: brads, sponge, glue pen, glitter

Treat box

On SCS they have one holiday idea each week on their site. You should check it out. This one is the treat box. I made this for a lady at the city who helps us with our preschool and such. We all wanted to give her a little something to say thank you. I used Chocolate Chip 12x12 cardstock and the DP is by American Crafts. It was so easy to make and I like the way it turned out. They have some real cute ones in the SCS gallery.

Love this paper!

When I was at my local craft store, thank goodness they have one close by, I was drawn to the colors on this paper. I believe it's by "Chatterbox." It has shades of rose that I just love together with the green and pumpkin. I made this for some sweet friends out here that helped me when I had my baby. I love using the black craft ink.
Stamps: Wonderful Favorites
Inks: Black Craft
Paper: White, Chatterbox DP, Old Olive
Accessories: Black grosgrain ribbon, window punch, 3 flower punch, corner punch, 1/16 punch, silver brads

Baby Announcement

So this is the announcement for my little guy. I was so excited about it that I finished them (except for the picture and tabs inside) at least a month before he was born. Which I'm grateful for because there was SO much stamping (backgrounds, coloring--- what was I thinking?--- It's obvious I only had one child at the time). :o)

Unless I get super excited about the next one I will probably just send a mass e-mail instead of a card. So if you really want to see my work, you'd better pray for a girl, that's the only way I will spend the time to make a darn, stinkin' cute card!!

I'm kidding, I'll probably do it again. And you know why? Because just like we forget, over time, the pain of labor and delivery (heaven only knows how that happens) I will forget the hours and hours and hours I put into making this one card celebrating my little one's life. But it sure will look cute in his baby book!!

I saw this file folder style card on SCS.

I typed up his measurements and printed them on the white paper (seen below)

Stamps: Buggies and Booties, Weathered BKG, Linen BKG, So Many Sayings, Fancy Flexible Phrases

Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Naturals White, Stazon Black, going grey (for stork)

Paper: Same

Accessories: Blue Bayou stitched ribbon, Aquapainters, Window punch, scalloped punch, 1-3/8 circle punch, tab punch, corner rounder(ahh the corner punch-so much fun!)

Another Challenge, Featured Stamper (FS39) on SCS

This card is one for a challenge on SCS. Featured Stamper (FS39) Go here for more info on the challenge.

I took this card from the featured stamper's gallery for inspiration and made my card-see photo below. I wanted to make a simple card without much stamping. The only thing that took time was distressing the edges of the paper. I curled the edges of the flower with my fingers and then used a dimensional to adhere it to the card. The card also opens vertically.

Here's more detail:

Stamps: Delight in Life, So Many Sayings

Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, Cameo Coral, DP (designer paper) from a simply scrappin' kit from Sell-a-bration. (***by the way, SU! just changed "sell-a-bration" to "sale-a-bration")

Ink: Black craft ink, cameo coral, brocade blue, white craft ink

Accessories: window punch, distresser for paper edges, tag punch, celery grosgrain ribbon, stapler, silver stickles for flower center, dimensional for flower.

Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping!
