Good afternoon . Today I made a wintery card. The snowman is a penny black stamp. Don't you just love him. He is so cute! I started off with some stampin up cardstock. I used Bo Bunny DP for my layers. Behind the snowman is a doily from MFT . The tag was made with stamps from PTI. The striped tag came from tiny tags II and the "winter wishes" is from the winter penguin set. I used twine from the twinery and I glittered the snow with some diamond stickles. Today I am playing along with the sketch from Cardpatterns and the" let it snow" challenge from the One stop craft challenge blog and the color challenge of turquoise, purple and white from the Creative Inspirations blog. Thanks for visiting!

I started off with a kraft card base and layered it with aquamist. My patterned paper is from the fancy pants Saint Nick 6 x 6 pad. I added my ruffled ribbon just like dawn showed us in the video. I added some recollections bling to it for a little sparkle. I wasnt sure about doing this. Is it too much bling? Next I cut a label using the fancy tags 3 from spellbinders. I stamped a small snowflake from the winter penguin set all over the label in aquamist ink. I stamped the circle from tag-its 10 and the greeting is from winter penguin. I distressed everything with chai ink. I stamped the big stamp and a small stamp from the mega mehndi madallion set onto cream cardstock and cut them with snowfake dies from Our Daily Bread Designs. I cut two snowflakes in aqua mist to layer them. I added some more bling to finish it off.
Then I realized that I glued everything upside down on my card base...lol!!! I had to cut the whole front off and glue it on another card base to save the card. Thats the first time I have ever done that. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Good morning. Today I made a card for the Make it Monday challenge from PTI. I used the Cardpatterns sketch 142 . Im too late to enter it in the cardpatterns challenge but I loved the sketch.
I started off with a Pure Poppy cardstock A2 base. I used all PTI stamps. The merry christmas is from the tremendous treats set. I stamped off first and them stamped it many times onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I added some snowflakes from the winter penguin set . I stamped them all over in pure poppy ink ( I didn't stamp off first.) I cut the whole piece into thirds and inked the edges with chai ink. I cut a solid bracket border (mft) from red CS and adhered it to my largest piece of kraft. I layered black offray ribbon and layered some red fuzzy ribbon ( hobby lobby) on top of the black piece. I glued all three pieces of kraft to my card base.
I cut a classic circle and a scalloped circle from CS. I diecut the penguin and his hat on white CS and stamped the images from the winter penguin set. The seasons greetings is from Tag-its #9. I popped the circle up with foam tape.
I'm not one to make my own BG paper. I usually buy lots and lots of patterned paper,( what an addiction:o) but this was a fun technique and I will be doing in more in the future. Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!

I used the Mehndi Medallion and Mega Mehndi Medallion PTI stamp sets. I began with some pure poppy cardstock and some patterned paper from the Season's Greetings Ehco Park 6 x 6 pad. I distressed my pieces with PTI's chamomile ink. I stamped the medallions 4 times. (4 different sizes) and stacked them on top of each other with foam tape for some dimension. I added a button with some twine on top. For the greeting I stamped a piece of white CS with the small medallion several times to make a background. I didnt have a flag die so I used my square punch to make the V shape at the end of the banner. I stamped the greeting from the Tremendous Treats set in versamark and embossed with gold powder. I finished it off with a red ribbon. I enjoyed playing along and think I might join in again next month. Thanks for visiting!

When I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World Blog, I knew I wanted to make a card using this inspiration photo. I was inspired by so many elements in the photo. I love the wooden headboard , the banner, the ruffles on the pillow and that big fabric flower is adorable.
For this project I started out with some chocolate brown cardstock from GKD. I layered the gingham pattern paper from Amuse studios and some kraft cardstock. I cut a 4in x 5in piece of GKD white cardstock and scored it at every half inch. I sprayed it with Amaretto memories mist . It still needed something after i sprayed it, it wasnt quite the color that I was looking for, so I took a craft sponge and added some Tim Holtz walnut stain ink. That made it look just like I wanted. I cut a rectange from it and used my medium scalloped die and cut two pieces for the bottom of the card. I used my banner dies to make the banner and stamped some studio G letters on the banner. The heart is a verve stamp. I used Glubers for the first time and made a rolled flower from ribbon. I love the way it turned out, I will definitely be using those more often. I punched the leaves with an EK success punch. I added pearl bling to card to finish it off. I am also entering this card in the sketch challenge by Sassy Lil' Sketches. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Inspiration Challenge. I knew exactly what kind of card I wanted to make as soon as I saw the inspiration photo. I was inspired by the beautiful blue floral wall and pillows. I used some Bo Bunny Dp on my card to look like the wall. I was also inspired by the lamps on the two bedside tables. I used a stamp set illustrated by Nina Brackett called Lovely shelf. I used stampin up DP to layer my card. This Dp reminded me of the pink roses on the bedside table. I added a satin bow with some pearls in the center. I used nestabilities fancy labels and stamped the sentiment from PTI. I hope you like this card. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Good Afternoon! Today I have a birthday card for you. I made this card with spring in mind, because I am so ready for it. I used Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious DP. The sentiment stamp is from Impression Obsession and the tree stamp is from memory box. I just love this tree stamp. I colored the leaves with copic markers and added liquid pearls to the tree to look like berries. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and I added two buttons with some twine on each end of the ribbon. I used scor-tape and ruffled the ribbon. I made this card for two challenges:
Hope you liked this card and thanks for visiting my blog today!

Wow, It has been almost two months since my last blog entry. Way too long. Its amazing how time passes by so quickly and you just can't find time to do the simple things that you enjoy so much in life. I guess you have to make time for these things. That's what I plan to do in 2011. I want to make more time for me and my papercrafting hobby. Today I have a card that I made for Valentines Day. I made this card for the Card Patterns Sketch 100. The background paper on this card is from Bo Bunny Crush Collection. The red and pink CS i had in my stash. I'm not sure what brand. I stamped the swirls in the BG with a verve stamp and matted all my layers together. I used a verve die and stamp for the tag. The sentiment (sweetest wishes) on the tag is from impression obsession. The starburst is a Mcgill punch that I stickled and added bling to. I added ribbon to my tag and added a bow with some bling for a little extra sparkle to this card. Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have a great day!!
