Perk Up!

Another card-lift from Laurie Zoellmer, I love her ideas!  Thanks for sharing Laurie.  Here's my version:

I used Take a Sip Wheel and Morning Cup Stamp Set for the perk up! and single coffee cup.  The card base is Poppy Parade CS and the backing paper is More Mustard run through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Marker to add color to the flowers on the cup and the heart.  I used the Scallop Trim Border for the strip of Poppy Parade CS behind the line of cups.  I also punched a Scallop Circle out of the Poppy Parade CS and mounted the single cup and perk up! punched from 1-3/8" circle punch with diminsenionals.  I sponged around the circles and other design done with the wheel in Soft Suede Ink.  Doesn't this remind you of the old Harvest Gold and other retro colors from the 60's??  (Any of you old enough to have lived in that era!!) tee!hee!

Sending Springtime Smiles

Here's my version of a card I cased from Laurie Zoellmer.  I used Marina Mist CS for the base, added a layer of Soft Suede CS and cut two squares of Whisper White CS and ran that piece through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Sending Springtime smiles and the blossom are from Easter Blossoms Stamp Set.  I cut part of the blossoms out with the heart punch and sponged the edges with Soft Suede.  The blossoms in the heart were colored with my Marina Mist Stampin' UP! Marker and the I added some Two Way Glue and sprinkled on some Glass Stampin' Glitter in Baja Breeze.  The Blossoms and sentiment were layered onto Soft Suede CS, the sentiment backing punched with the Oval Scallop Punch and the Blossoms background just squared up behind the Whisper White and added a layer of Maria Mist CS with a strip of Crochet Trim Confetti Ribbon gathered and glued on.  I splattered with Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker put into the Spritzer Tool. 

I'm totally ready for Spring ~ I'm sure you are too!

Happy Easter 2011

I card-lifted this from Card Scraps, check out her site and her wonderful cards.  I used Baja Breeze CS and Seam Binding, Always Artichoke CS, Crumb Cake ink for sponging.  I used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Modern Label Punch and Oval Scallop Punches.  I added some Basic Pearls below the Happy Easter from the Easter Blossoms Stamp Set.  The floral paper (love it) is in the package Springtime Vintage DSP.  That bunny will be here before you know it!

Dawn's Birthday Card

I saw this on Stamping School Sunday night, perfect timing for me to make a card/gift for my friend Dawn!  I used Baja Breeze CS instead of the Pear Pizzazz.  The Stamp Set I used for the greeting is the new one in the Sale a bration catalog that I got for free!  Whoopie!!  It's called So Happy for You.  I used Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon (love that stuff).  The bookmark is made with the Two-tags Sizzix Die and the Modern Label Punch for the pocket, the 1 3/4" Scallp Circle Extra Large Punch and 1-3/8" Large Circle Punch.  The Stamp Set used on the bookmark was Clearly for You in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It was punched out of Shimmery White CS.  I used Baja Breeze CS and speckeled the tag with the Spritzer Tool.  The Birds and No5 were stamped with Basic Black Ink and I sponged around the edges with Soft Suede Ink.  The Butterfly was stamped with Baja Breeze Ink and a little Rhinestone added for bling!  I used the Vintage Wallpaper Tetured Impressions Embossing Folder on the top half of the Baja Breeze CS and mounted it all onto Whisper White CS. Hope Dawn likes it!  She's on a trip to Alambama for the Birthday but the card will be waiting for her next week when she returns! 

Happy Birthday my friend...

Valentine Treat

Here's a little topper I did for a mini M&M's bag of treats.  I used the Create a Cupcake Stamp set, along with the Build a Cupcake Punch.  These two together are so much fun!  The little "love" is a stamp from the  Tiny Tags Stamp Set.  One Heart is punched using the Heart Embosslit (love that die) and the other is punched using the Heart Punch and running it through the Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder.  I used Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Blushing Bride CS. The edge was punched with the Eyelet Border Punch.  I punched the cherry out using the Build a Cupcake Punch and colored the stem brown with my Chocolate Chip stampin' write marker and put a little shadow using the White Gel Pen.  You can't see the back (sorry), but I added a Heart from the Filled with Love Stamp Set to cover the staple in the back. 

XOXO Mailbox

Here's a little mailbox I covered with Love Impressions DSP.  I covered 4 little Hershey Nuggests to put inside and also a little 3xe card.  The litte tag is from Teeny Tiny Tags Set and punched with the Tiny Tag Punch.  The heart on the card is stamped with one of the hearts in the Filled with Love Stamp Set.  Hope whoever gets it loves it!  Happy Valentine Stamping!!

Feb 14 Nugget Bags

These are the little nugget bags I made to sell for Valentine's Day this year.  The Stamp Set is Filled With Love.  Some Real Rd CS and my Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Heart Embosslit and regular Heart Punch and the 1" circle Punch, lots of Chocolate Chip Sponging and various Red and Pink CS.  I used a Rhinestone in the center of the circle of hearts on the back.  I've been so busy creating Valentine stuff to sell this year I neglected my blog ~ so sorry!
