A few new..

Thanks for joining me again.  I have some new cards to share with you!  I feel like I'm a bit rusty since I haven't been crafting much lately but there's nothing better to cure that than to jump back in and start creating again.

 This card uses a sketch from Mojo Monday.  I love that I was able to use the Banner Blast set and Banner punch from Sale-A-Bration on this card.  The other stamp set is Giggle Greetings from the main catalog.  Its another one that makes me happy with all the fun/silly images.  The colors were from a challenge on Colour Q.  I missed the deadline to submit for that one but I love to check those out for inspiration.

 This one was inspired by a Pals Paper Arts sketch.  I really like how it turned out - simple and striking.  This uses the set Blue Ribbon.

 Next, I had to do an Easter card for this one.  I just love springy colors. The sketch for this one comes from Cas(e) this Sketch.  The cross is from a retired set called Crosses of Hope.  The Hello, Doily and Teeny Tiny Wishes are in the current catalog.

 I think this is my favorite one of my creations this time.  It uses the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy punch and also the Oh, Hello stamp set.  The mom is from a retired set called Family Reunion.  The sketch is from Create with Connie and Mary (missed the deadline for this one too!) and the colors are a challenge from CAS.

 The last card I made was for the Paper Players and Dynamic Duos and Less Is More.  I like the idea of butterflies and seeing them soon.  I thought it was a nice pairing with the sentiment- it reminds me of butterfly kisses.  Sentimental, I guess.

Firstly we'd like to see 
of something on your cards 

 Finally, here is a little something I made for my club members.  I'm having so much fun playing with the Envelope Punch Board!  It perfectly fits 8 Hershey miniatures.  The stamp is from the Occasions catalog and is called Eggstra Spectacular.  I even added a touch of Dazzling Details for that cute little bunny tail. It will be perfect for the SUO Challenge!
 I love that you can see both sides of this fantastic Sweet Sorbet DSP!

Special Occasions

I'm back!  We still don't have a normal desktop computer but my husband has managed to figure out a way (and teach me) how to upload all my pictures to my laptop so I can get back to sharing with you again.  YAY!

Today was my Special Occasions Stamp Camp.  Here are the cards we made:
 Here's a picture of the grouping.

 Next we had some 3x3 Easter cards.  These will be so cute tucked into an Easter basket!  They use the Watercolor Wonder DSP and the Eggstra Spectaular Stamp set.

 This beauty was Inspired and partially CASED but, alas, I cannot find who to point to as my muse.  If it was you, please accept my sincere gratitude!  I thought this pretty card could be used for any number of special occasions.  It uses the Sweet Sorbet (SAB) DSP and the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp set.

 I've been wanting to try my hand at making my own swing card and this is kinda half of one.  I thought it ended up very romantic looking and was perfect for a wedding card.  Stamp sets used were Mr.&Mrs. and Everything Eleanor.  I also just love the Pistachio Pudding and Smokey Slate together!

Last, but not least, this fine graduation card was CASED from Janis Sinko.  I found her delightful card on the Demonstrator website and just had to share it!    I don't have a woodgrain stamp set so I inked up my embossing folder and used that to get the woodgrain look on my cardstock.  Pure Gumption is the stamp set used to this one and I did use every single stamp in the set on this one card!

I hope to be sharing more with you in the near future! Pin It Now!
