Ho Ho Ho

I had fun with him. I took the Whipper Snapper lion and put the hat from the whipper snapper santa face. I combined two stamps to get this. The holly is Darcie from one of the sets. The Paper is Heidi Grace. She has some of my favorite holiday papers this year and last year.
Of course I added some bling on the scallop punched bottom. That is a Martha Stewart punch. Must say I like this one. Hope you do to.

Birthday Gray Hare

I needed a cute birthday card and nothing is cuter than whipper snapper stamps. I used stickles on the bubbles to make them look soapy. The picture isn't the best but the white paper is embossed with the cuttles bug I am still working on a good area of the house to take pictures. Bare with me.

Rubberstamp Tapestry

This is another Tapestry set. These make very simple cards in a short amount of time. Beginner stampers can't go wrong with these sets. I used a coluzzle to cut out the oval shapes.
I am going to be going out of town to visit my sister for the holiday. We leave tuesday. I will try to get in one more posting before I leave but I have had a lot of running around to do. I don't come back until late saturday night. She lives in Missouri and it is a 13 hour drive. Love seeing her but I hate the drive. But hopefully I will come back refreshed and ready to get back to my stamping. See everyone soon.

I made this card using the Rubberstamp Tapestry peg set. I call these stamps the goof proof stamps. You can not possibly make a mistake because if you do you just stamp over it. This is a process of stamping over what you have already stamped. You just keep on layering until you are satisfied. And you don't have to layer a lot. Just a little bit goes a long way.
When the stamped image is complet then I add some stickles (which is a type of glitter glue) it really adds that extra something. These are some of the quickest cards you can make. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Thanks for stopping by.

just chillin

This card was an extra I made when I did my class. I really have to learn how to count. I made 11 cards when I needed 10.

This was a very simple card. The stamp is whippersnapper. The background is one of the cuttlebug embossing folders that I used. Very simple and very appropriate for the kind of weather we are having here today. So it's the perfect time to catch up on my blogging.

12 days of Christmas

Here is a great idea for anyone who wants to be a secret santa and or has a special someone whom they would like to do the 12 days of Christmas for. The gifts can be whatever you wish. Mine were inexpensive and I created little poems for each gift and put the poem on gift tags like these.
Here is a sample poem:
On the first day of Christmas,
Here's something for your tree.
To let you know you're thought of,
with love from our family.
The gift is an ornament for the tree. I have created over 24 different poems so if you decide to do the same family two years in a row they don't get the same poems each year. This has been a lot of fun for us. If you have any questions on this please feel free to leave a comment or email me at Thanks for stopping.

Snow Friends

For all of you gals that take my classes here is a sneak peak at one of the cards that we will be making this saturday in class. Again my pictures, I don't think do a great job showing off the colors in the card.
If you haven't signed up yet you better hurry because the space is almost full. If you can't make it but would like a kit just let me know so that I can cut up the kit the same time I'm getting ready for class.
Happy Stamping/Card Making!!!

Christmas gift

This is a gift I am working on for one of my cousins. She got married in september and I figured I would make her a scrapbook of the shower and wedding for a christmas gift. So this is a page from the scrapbook and the other thing is a picture cube. I can use it as a small gift box or she can keep it on a dresser or desk and put little nick nacks in it. I think it came out good so far but I have a long way to go with the scrapbook. If I could just find some extra time somewhere. lol

Seasons Eatings

This is a card from my las card class for those of you who couldn't make it. My next class is Nov. 15th that's a saturday at 11:00am until you finish. I don't like to rush people.
This card really looks better in person. The holly paper is by doodlebug and it's flocked. I put crystal laquer on the little mouses candy to make it look more like candy.
Thanks for stopping by. I am working on some christmas projects that I will be posting soon once I have an once of spare time to finish them. lol But I promise they will be coming soon.

Holiday Baking

Riley has some holiday muffins piping hot just for you. I thought that this was a really cute card to send along with some homemade muffins. I just have to figure out a creative way to decorate a container to put the muffins in.
I am still trying to figure out how to put all the fun things on my blog but I am learning and getting a little more each time. So thanks for stopping by and please keep checking back.
