To cheer you

I made this card for two different challenges, the first one is cardpatterns sketch challenge 93, the second one is the color challenge over at Stamp TV. The colors we were challenged to use were innocent pink, chocolate brown, and ivory. I LOVE these colors together. I also LOVE this sketch. I will be using many times. I used pure luxury cardstock  and the DP is basic grey. My image is from a stamp set called Hope Grows. I colored the image with my copic markers and stamped the sentiment under it. I added stickles to the center of the flowers to make them sparkle. I used a MS punch. I added some bling, ribbon, a flower, and a brad from Bo Bunny. This card makes me smile. I hope you like it too. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Christmas Tags

Today I want to show you some christmas tags that I made to put on my christmas packages. I haven't wrapped any presents yet but I need to do this and not wait till the last minute. lol!! I made these all with pure luxury card stock.  The To/From stamp is from a 2008 papertrey set called Holiday Tag collection. It was a gift from my sister-n-law Tammy. I stamped it in colorbox chalk ink (maroon). One of the DP is from Kaisercraft Belle collection, the other is a random piece that I pulled from my drawer. I'm not sure what brand it is. The ornament stamp is from Hero arts. The penguin and owl stamp dont have a name on the block, but I just recently purchased them from local stamp shop. Aren't they adorable? I added the bling and the ribbon to give it a little something extra. Hope ya like them. thanks for visiting my blog!!

My Log Cabin Card

     I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I know I did!! I made this card for Gina's spotlight sketch challenge and because I needed to practice on doing some male cards. I don't know about you, but these are the hardest ones for me to do. I had seen this log cabin card long ago and wanted to try it and finally got around to doing it. I used Pure Luxury CS in asparagus and chocolate and the DP is from the DCWV matstack (the christmas combo). The punch is a Martha Stewart that I picked up on clearance at michaels and the embossing folder is called distressed stripes. I sponged the sky and stamped the tree 4 times randomly. I cut the image and placed it to look like you are looking out the window of the cabin. I added stickles to the trees to look like snow. I added the birthday sentiment. The stamps are from Gina K Designs Winter Wonderland Stamp TV kit and  Snow Much Fun stamp set. I will post some christmas tags later this week.  Thanks for visiting my blog!!

Happy Holidays

This is the first post I have done in quite a while. Its been a really busy fall, but now Christmas time is here and I am ready to do some christmas cardmaking. I made this card for two challenges, the first one is the color spotlight challenge over at Stamp TV. Gina challenged us to make a card using green apple, lipstick red, and white. These were great xmas colors. The other challenge i did was for Cardpatterns. I used their sketch for this card. It was an awesome sketch. I used Gina k Designs stamps and cardstock. I colored my wreath stamp with memento markers and then stamped the image. I used brilliance moonlight white ink for the sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used nestabilities lacey circles. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash. I am having a minor surgery this week and am hoping to spend the 10 day recovery in my card room. So hopefully I will have some more blog posts this week. Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving!!

My first heartfelt creations card

Hello again, its been a while since ive had a chance to post a card but I have one for you today. This is the first card I have made with my new stamp sets that I got from Heartfelt creations. Tammy and I went to the Heirloom stamping festival is PA and had a wonderful time. There were so many great vendors there. Heartfelt creations was the one that caught all of our attention and we came away with some great new stamps and dies to match.
For this card I used SU cardstock and my sentiment is from the SU set Well Scripted. The flower stamps and dies are called Posy Patch from Heartfelt creations. The leaves are called perfect petals. They are also stamps and dies to match. I used my big shot to cut them out. I colored them with my copic markers. I used pop dots to give them some dimension and added bling and stickles to the center of the flowers. The punch is MS and I also used nestabilities labels 1. I made this card for a friend at work. It was her sisters birthday and her favorite color was purple. Well thats all for now, but I have a light weekend planned so hopefully plenty of time for stamping. Have a great weekend!!

Favorite Fall memory Challenge

     Over at Stamp TV Gina has challenged us to create a card that represents one of our favorite fall memories. One of the first ones that came to my mind was move in day to the new house that my husband Tom and I built 10  years ago. We moved in 1 week before Thanksgiving. I can remember going to town and buying pumpkins to decorate my new front porch. It is a Fall memory that will always stand out in my mind.
     I used GKD PLCS in Chocolate brown and sweet corn.  The DP is from  an autumn pack from target. The image is from the Autumn Splendor Stamp TV kit. I masked my pumpkins and colored them with copic markers. I used nesties 8 and 14 for my diecuts. I used the asparagus ribbon from the stamp tv kit and added some bling. I used a MS punch for the border.  I also added a pumpkin button to the bow for a little something extra. Have a great day!!

card positioning systems #184

Hello fellow stampers.  I made this card for the card positioning systems # 184 sketch challenge this week. It was a CAS sketch and I just  loved it. I used recollections cardstock in yellow, red and brown. The white cardstock is Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 120#. It is the best CS out there to use to with your copic markers. The stamp is a new one I just got from Magenta, and the sentiment came from a set from Just for Fun Stamps. They have great sentiment sets and they are clings which make them even better to store. I am really loving doing Fall and Holiday cards right now so you will will probably see many more coming your way.  Thats all for now, have a great weekend!!
