Warm Wishes

This card came out a little dark in the photo but it was done in light blues and a medium blue for the cardstock. I am still working on trying to find a better area for taking my photos of the cards. I can't use a flash because they become totally washed out looking and you see no detail. So I do them without the flash but sometimes they are a little darker than what the card colors really are.
Hang in there with me I will get it right sooner or later. The card looks very elegant in person and it was really easy to do.

Witchy treats

I wanted to make this witch a card but the card always ended up to tall because of the hat so I used the milk carton idea and created a witchy treat container. She was really simple because it was all made with punches. So if your looking for a really quick treat container try this one.

Sorry, It has been a little while since I have posted to my site I have had a VERY BUSY week and it isn't done yet. My days are so screwed up that I can't remember what day it is and I scheduled 3 different things on one day. DUH I am a little better now. But I have a class at the store that I work and I am still getting my cards ready for that. Hopefully it will calm down soon.

Since I needed a little smile today I made this card to wet everyones whistle a little but as soon as my class is done I will post my favorite cards from the class. So please check back. Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping everyone.

Mini Scrapbook

This was such a fun project. You can really load this up with all sorts of photos or sayings. There are just so many places to include things that is seems like the never ending mini album. I tried to show what the inside looks like. It may look complicated but it really isn't. There is only 4 main parts for the entire book, then you just decorate it however you wish. I'm not finished with mine this is just the body I still have to add pictures and embellishments. This will be a great gift for someone special. If you would like to know how to make this email me at I will be glad to share the measurements with you.

Halloween Hugs

The Greeting is from Inky Antics The bat punch is from Michaels and of course the cute little ghost is a Whipper Snapper. The papers are the new reminisce line for fall.

Season's Eatings

Again I wish my photos did the cards justice but they don't show the sparkle from the stickles and the shimmer from the reminisce paper. The Whippersnapper stamp is still cute as can be. As everyone know I colored them with prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol. That is my favorite way to shade. Seasons Eatings came from Art Gone Wild Stamps, Please feel free to leave me comments after each card and you can ask me questions on how I did that.

It's a Moose

Hi everyone. Just received some of my Hanna stamps and I love them. Well anyone who knows me knows I love Moose. And Hanna has Riley Moose. They are the absolute cutest guys and girls I have ever seen and very reasonably priced.
Also just had to say that I am a member of ChemoAngels. A very worth while group that tries to bring a little smile to the rough lives of people going through cancer treatments. I send handmade cards to my assigned buddy every week to help keep her mind off of what she has to go through every day with her treatments. I hope my cards bring a smile to her face.

Just Because

I was playing around with the big cupcake stamp (stamps by Judith) and the little cupcakes (whippersnapper) and decided to make a card that would work for any occasion. I took the picture with and without the flash. This is the one without because the one with washed out all the colors and made it look funny.
I do all my coloring with colored prisma pencils and Gamsol. I get my best shading results.
I am lucky I have had any time to stamp and make cards because I have been dealing with chipmunks storing their nuts in the engine of my vehicles. You wouldn't believe how many they can store in just one night. I drive the car every day it's not like it just sits for long periods of time. Unbelievable. Normally I love all animals but they are starting to irritate me a little bit.
I need them to stop so I can get back to making cards.

This was a really fun card to make. The background paper I of course made by chalking the circles, both the positive and the negative, and stamping the snowflakes. The adorable snowman came from the Whipper Snapper snowman quartet. The saying is from Penny Black.

It's hard to see but I also used stickles glitter glue to add some sparkle to the snowflakes and around the snowman.

I have to admit I get a lot of use out of the snowman quartet stamp. It can be used many different ways. I stamped the image once but cut it apart and made 2 cards out of it. Hope you like them.
