School Kids

I found this card at CardScraps and had to case it! I just loved the colors she used. The card base is Crumb Cake CS, then a layer of Basic Black CS, Real Red CS for layering and the new Love Letter DSP. Of course sponged with Early Espresso and the ribbon is the Black Satin. I think it gives it a real vintage look. The stamp is from the Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set. I colored mine with Stampin' UP! markers and the Blender Pen.

Happy Halloween Greeting Card Kid

I'm lovin' this cute little stamp set called Greeting Card Kids (they look like the old Campbell Soup Company Kids)! I snagged this idea from Angie Juda at Chic n' Scratch, isn't it cute. She's so awesome. She's doing live videos and you can go back and view them later if you miss the actual live showing. I love how she takes us right into her craft room, check it out.

I used Old Olive CS for the box and the wide striped grosgrain ribbon in Old Olive. I also ran a strip of Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon down the side. The background paper is Pawsitively Prints DSP. I stamped the little girl on her pumpkin from the Greeting Card Kids and punched it out with the new 2-1/2" Circle Punch and sponged the edges with Early Espresso Classic Ink. The happy halloween is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set stamped on Whisper White CS and punched out with the Word Window Punch and of course, sponged with Early Espresso Ink. I think my friend Tina has gotten me into the Halloween spirit!!!

Sister Birthday

One of my little sisters is having a Birthday this week ~ here's the card I made for her. Should have had it in the mail already ~ at least I'll get it going before her BIG DAY!!!
I used the Aviary Stamp Set for the birds and cage. I stamped the bird cage on clear acetate and cut it out and mounted it over the little bird that's statmped directly onto the background paper, the top is Elegant Soiree DSP and the bottom part of the card is from Travel Journal DSP. I punched the happy birthday with the large oval punch. The happy birthday is stamped with the Perfect Punches Set on Baja Breeze CS. I sponged around the outside edge with Early Espresso and rounded the corners. The ribbon across the center is Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain. Sure hope she likes the card and the thought ~ I know she will. I did the inside on my computer and added another long-legged bird from the Aviary Stamp Set. Happy Birthday Sis'! It's really hard when they live so far away ~ well, not real far, but over 4 hours, so I don't get to see her and her family very often. I know Judy ~ at least it's not Michigan!

Halloween Mojo!

I borrowed this picture from my dear friend Tina's blog Lemondrops Simple Stuff. She had a Stampin' UP! workshop at her home for me yesterday. We had so much fun and the girls all did a fantastic job of creating!

Tina is a perfect little hostess. She made lemondade, salami roll-ups/olives, watermelon and the best cookies ever!

We created the Peppermit Patty scallop circle with the spider, little tubes of M&M's with the scallop at the top and another halloween stamp and the milk carton with halloween motif (filled with yummy fall pumpkins and candy corn) and then a little 3x3 card with the new owl punch! Tina's favorite holiday is Halloween so I hope we gave her a lot of inspiration to get going for her festivities this year (her pumpkin plants that she's growing in the backyard are starting to get pumpkins on them so it's getting closer). Thanks Tina ~ you're a great friend and an awesome hostess.

Joy at Christmas Notebook

I cased this from Chic n Scratch, almost the same, just different! I used some little subject notebooks and layered Poppy Parade CS, then Jolly Holiday DSP with a strip of Pear Pizzazz CS punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. I used the Stamp from Perfect Punches, stamped once in Pear Pizzazz and again with Poppy Parade Stampin' Pads. I punched them out with the Scallop Circle Punch and the 1-3/8" Circle Punch and layered them on with Dimensionals. I added a little ribbon on the side made with Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon. Never to early for Christmas!!!

Jordan Elijah

A lady at my work sent me a picture of her Grandson. This is the card I made as a thank you to her for sharing her little bundle of love!
I used my digital STUDIO for the background and added a few embellishments. The "In My Thoughts 24***7" is from the Hodgepodge Happiness Stamp Set. I punched it with the 3/4" Circle Punch and mounted it onto the heart with a deminsional. I used a brad from the Filigree set in the center of the Baby Blue ribbon. I punched the bottom with the Scallop Trim Border punch. I ran some Soft Suede CS through the Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder and used the snail to mount it to the back and then all of it onto Pumpkin Pie CS and then a card base of Soft Suede CS. I added 3 little rhinestones from the Jewels Basic Rhinestone pack. Hope she likes her card?

Cased another card ~ hello baby!

This lady (Jackie Topa) is awesome ~ she did a video tutorial on this card. Check out her blog; Addicted to Stamping and see what I mean!

I pretty much followed her instructions. I used the Whisper White for my Base Card and sponged with Pink Pirouette. I used the little Sizzlet Lil' Paws for my bear and sponged him with Soft Suede. The stamp set I used for the Onesie is the stamp wheel Baby Tees. I used the Word Window Punch for the post the hanger (made from a paper clip) is hanging on. I used the Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Paper Crimper, Ticket Corner Punch on the drawers and Curly Label Punch for the bottom of the dresser.

Thanks for looking! Happy Stampin'
