More Christmas Cards.....

I made 2 sets of this cards.  The patterned paper is from DCWV Glitter Christmas stack.  I love this paper stack and I seriously need to go to Joanns this weekend to get more paper because I ran out.  The Christmas Tree is cut from the Christmas Solution Cartridge.  I got my idea from Courts Crafts.  I used stickles and some Glossy Accents and Martha Stewart fine glitter.  I can't make up my mind which version I like I think I like the one with the white background more.  I also used border punch from Martha Stewart again. The Sentiment outside is from Papertrey Ink and cut out with a scallop circle punch.  Ribbon and Pin are from Michaels.
I think I like this one better I used glossy accents and sprinkled it with glitter.

On this one I used some Star Dust Stickles.

Cards for a Friend

Here are some cards I made for my friend.  It's really a very Belated Birthday Gift (May) that I promised her but I was having serious morning sickness and was completely out of commission for a couple of months.  I hope she likes it.

Here is the whole set!

Here I used paper pack from Me & My Big Ideas.  This pack is seriously huge 148 papers called Fashion District.  I cut all the stamped images using Spellbinders Nestabilities.  The Stamp and Sentiments I used Papertrey ink Asian Fusion and Everyday Button Bits stamps.  I colored the flowers with some copics and sakura star dust pen.  The buttons are also from Papertrey ink and ribbons are from Michaels.  The punch from this is from Fiskars-Border Punch Threading Water.

For this set.  I used my gypsy and cricut to cut the images.  The top 2 are from Elegant Cakes and the cake is from Sweet Treats Cartridge.    I used stickles for the rose and the candle for the cake.  The sentiments are from Papertrey ink and ribbon is from Michaels.  The punch from this one is from Stampin Up Scallop Trim Border punch.

Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #15

Hi Everyone, well I broke down and got me more Sparkle Rubber Stamps.  I bought  the new Christmas Tree Ruby Stamp &  Rin and Snowman. Her stamps are seriously just so adorable.  If you haven't gotten at least one you really should they are worth it.

This week's challenge is to create anything inspired by winter!
 For this challenge I decided to color Rin and Snowman using my copics, for the snow I added some Icicle stickles and for the background I used some chalking.  For the base of the card which is 5x5 I ran it through my cuttlebug using one of the embossing folder from the Asian Folder. I added some felt flower with some bling on top of it.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Daily Designs Sentiment.  Hope you guys like it.

This is the inside of the card. I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Pages which I don't know what it's called at the moment.

Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #14

 This week's challenge is CAS (Clean & Simple)!  I don't have any of Sparkle's Christmas Stamps yet so I decided to make Cocktail Emily into a holiday Card.  Hope you guys like it.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 38: October Inspirations

Fall is in full swing, and using the month of October an inspiration, create a layout or project based on the season. The only catch is that it can't be a card!

This leaves your theme wide open to Autumn, Halloween, or Harvest Elements (note, since it's October, a Thanksgiving feast scene wouldn't really work for this challenge, but gourds, pumpkins, etc. would be appropriate!)

Okay so this picture of my son has been hanging on our refrigerator for so long now.  I think he is about 2 or 3 years old here.  He is now 7 years old by the way.  His daycare decided to put this outfit on him - isn't he the cutest look at those dimples.  I used the Happy Haunting Cartridge on this  layout and Disney's Happily Ever After.  The Peachy Keen I used to stamp the pumpkin is Monster Mash Face and for the Bride of Frankenstein is Blushing Bride.

For the pumpkin after I stamped the face, I used Kathy's technique I put glossy accents on it and them sprinkled it with some Martha Stewart Glitter.  I did the same for the Bride of Frankenstein Face after I colored it with copics, I also used stickles on her dress.  Hope you guys like it.

My Inspiration - My Muse

Peachy Keen - Let's Face it Friday - Week 2

While I am not playing favorites even though I have 2 boys  - 3 in January.  I just find it easier for me to Scrap my One and Only Princess.  I've always been an avid Scrapper but I started scrapping even more when my she was born 2 years ago.  This is her 2nd Birthday.  Time goes by so fast sometimes.  I hope you guys like my layout.  Thanks for Looking!

I think one picture is clearer and close up than the other but I can't tell so I posted both of them.

This layout is also being submitted to My Pink Stamper's Challenge something Cute.
