Another card we did in our recent class. I saw this on a blog Stampin n scrapin in GJ. The white on white with the distressing is very effective. I had just bought this stamp & it's from Stampendous.

Card Class


Here's one of the cards we did in a class I recently taught. I used Cherry Cobbler cs and the polka dot is some I got @ Hobby Lobby. I was pleased with the way it turned out. This stamp is in a set of 4 made by Hero Arts and was retired but they brought it back. Wish other stamps companies would do this too.

Dressing a wine bottle


We were going to a neighbors for dinner and I did not have a wine bag so I used this apron. I thought it was cute. The stamp is a Rubbernecker stamp. I stamped it with black ink and tied it with black ribbon. I used Scor tape to hold it in place.

Here's a card I did using Cherry Cobbler & Marina Mist. I used a background stamp that I have had for awhile. I bought it @ a stamp convention. The manufacturer is SavvyStamps. I used my new stamp set Bliss. I have always used the background stamp in light colors. Not sure I like the way this card turned out. Too bad, it is already in the mail! I really do like the Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler together tho.

Playing with my new papers


I made a card yesterday using Marina Mist, vanilla and black. I used a Penny Black flower stamp and a cling dandelion stamp, origin unknown. I masked the Penny Black stamp to stamp the dandelion. Turned out fairly well.

Saturday's Shoe Box card


Here's the card I made for our Sat. shoe box. The stamp is a Penny Black one. We exchanged stamps @ Christmas and then were to use the ones we got @ our next exchange. I love these colors together. Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. The girls cards looked better than mine so I came home and changed mine. The difference was that I colored the stamp with markers and then stamped. I got a very washed out card. They colored the stamp with brown and then added the not quite navy. That worked better. That is one of the reasons I love shoe box, the exchange of ideas is great!

Marcy's birthday card


Here's a card I made for Marcy for her birthday. I used to stamp on figured paper a lot. I especially like to do this on checked or polka dotted paper. Just for a different look I ran the piece through the Swiss Dots embossing folder. This stamp is from Endless Creations. Check out their website. They have some really darling cards.

Another birthday card for the VA


I haven't used this stamp in a long time. I used a layout that I did last month. I just changed the stamp. I am all out of this paper. It makes a guy card really easy! The stamp is by Morningstar. I bought it @ a convention. It is plain and I just used different stamps to make the figure and then cut them out.

Happy Valentines Day



Happy Valentines Day!

Here's a card I made for Valentines day. I used Real Red, Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder and Martha's heart punch. I used SU Love You Much stamp set. On the inside I used a retired SU set. You can't really see the saying in the picture but it says Be My Valentine. I cut the heart shape using my Heart Nestie. I hope you like it.

Ally's Valentine


Here's the card I made for Ally using the Love You much stamp set. I colored the little red flower with a marker. I first tried to press it into a red stamp pad, too messy. The marker worked very well.

Evan's Valentine


Here's the Valentine I made for Evan using the SU set called Love You Much. It's a really neat set and the one I used for all my Valentines. I am only doing Valentine's for my 2 youngest grandchildren this year.

I bought this stamp @ the convention. It makes the plaid on the top of the card. A real pain to get even without the stamp-a-magig. I did not use it but it turned out OK. This cupcake stamp is one I have had for a long time. It is made by DeNami. I used glitter glue for the icing.

I made this card for the VA birthdays for Feb. I have only 2 more to make for the month. Colors are navy, red and yellow. A little out of the box for me but I like it. The stamp is Gind K designs.

Working on VA Birthdays for Feb.


Good Morning:

Here's another card I made for my VA guys. I started out with this image that I stamped a long time ago. The stamp is one owned by Peg. I don't know who made it. I started out trying to color the car with straw and the vintage photo. I got out of line so I decided to cover the whole piece with ink. The AMuse checked paper was a scrap I had and it was black & white which did not go with the straw & v. photo so I just colored it with the inks. It certainly turned out differently than what I thought when I started but I like it.

Working on VA Birthdays for Feb.


Here's a card I made for the VA birthdays for Feb. I loved this paper and decided to use the Popsicle stamp that has never seen ink. Didn't really like it until I added stickles. Maybe not a wise choice since it is so cold but it's on it way!

I Made Myself a Get Well Card!


Actually I make get well cards for the point. When some on is sick, has an accident etc. the Sunshine Committee sends a card. I got one in the mail after my fall. Inside was a band aid, an aspirin and a life saver! Too cute. I had forgotten that I made this card.

Swap card


Here's a card I made for one of my swap groups. It is SU Mellow Moss (wish they had kept this color!) and Burgundy. I used a level 2 hostess set. Don't know if it is 2 step stamping or not but that's what I did. I first tried with pink & burgundy but did not like that so I just used the burgundy. I like it! I wish I knew who made this saying. It is an unmounted stamp & I also like the font.
