Greetings from Earth


Hey Everyone! I have been trying to knock out some last minute Christmas cards the last few days, and wanted to share a card that I really like and is not your typical "Christmas/Holiday" card. I always try to look at my stash of stamps and try to figure out how to use them for every occasion. I pulled out the set Greetings From, and a retired set called Greetings of the season, and came up with this -


Super fast and clean and simple card... Just paper and ink..really. I think its perfect to give to anyone during the holiday season. Yea! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

a dazzling 60 years

Hey Everyone! I have been busy, like the rest of you I am sure, getting ready for the upcoming holidays. This past weekend I painted our back hall, and yesterday I made an anniversary frame for my beloved neighbors. They are celebrating 60 years of marriage. Wow! I am just in awe of them every time we share stories over the fence with each other. They both are wonderfully amazing people, and full of life and love for each other. So, as a token of my love for them, I decided to make a frame for them. I made a card a few months back for a couple celebrating their 50th. A fellow demo, Carol Carriveau, made the suggestion to put it in a frame, so that's what I did. Thanks Carol! Here is the frame -



I just changed up the numbers, and used Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper in lieu of the gold foil on the original considering it is their diamond anniversary. :) Here is a close up - 


I really loved making this for them, and I am sure they will love it too! OK, off to get some ingredients for this weekends Boy Scout bake sale! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Peace & Joy


Hello Everyone! We made it to the weekend! :) This past week has been productive in the creative dept, and I couldn't happier! Whoop! Here is my latest project - 


I have had this idea tooling around in my head for over a year, and had intended to use the retired Neighborhood Wheel, (one of my all time favorite images from Stampin' Up! by the way,) but how convenient that SU comes out with Holiday Home. Whoop! Perfect for the project wouldn't you say? 
I had so much fun coloring and making all the little details. Here is a close up -

Oh Happy Day


Hey Everyone! I mentioned in my post from yesterday, that I needed to sit down and crank out one more Birthday card this week. Well, that is just what I did. Here is my second birthday card this week - 


I used two hostess sets for this card, Nuts about you, and Hello Love. :) Over the last couple of weeks I have had to do some reorganizing in my stamp/laundry room due to some plumbing issues. While I was putting things in their place, I found some retired SU cork sheets. Never opened of course, until yesterday... a little late to the party, but better late than never. :) Who knows, maybe you have some, and can breathe some new life into them too! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Thanks Pumpkin(s)

 
Hello Everyone! The sun is finally out here in the midwest. We can at long last get some pictures of all the beautiful trees turning, and see everyones pumpkins on their porches. :) Inspiring to say the least.. I was inspired to play a little more with the Good Greetings hostess set, and pair it with the sweet Fall Fest set from the holiday catalog. Here is my card -
 

 
 
I stamped my pumpkins in Crushed Curry, then sponged on Tangelo Twist for some depth, and used my chocolate chip marker to add the little vines too. Definitely a busy card, but I think it all works together. :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Truly Grateful (undefined)

 
Hello Everyone! I actually had to sit down and stamp this past weekend.. :) My oldest son will be making his Conformation in a couple weeks, so I needed to get out his invites for the family. Looking through my stamps I realize, I have nothing appropriate for a conformation card/invite. No dove, cross, or anything remotely close to what I needed. So.., what else do I do besides go into full blown panic mode,... I break out my Undefined stamp carving kit, and make my own.. Whoop!! Here is my card and handy-work -
 
 
I kept the images REAL simple considering this was the first time I ever did this, and I love the outcome. I used a sentiment from the set Truly Grateful and think it fit just fine too! OK, I am off to get these in the mail and one their way. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)

Give thanks

Hi Everyone! I took some time for myself yesterday, and played a little downstairs. I have had very little time for any play time since the beginning of the school year, and it really felt good to get a little inky. I had a back to basics kind of play day yesterday, and played with only things that were in front of me on my desk,.. Paper, Ink , Scissors, and punches, and of course some stamps sets that had yet to see any ink. :) I decided to play with Nuts about You, and... a hostess promotion exclusive set called Good Greetings. Both sets can be earned if you host a $300 dollar workshop. Good Greetings however is FREE with a qualifying order through the month of October... ,.. So Hurry up and get yours! Anyhoo, here is my card -
 
 
I had a lot of fun with all the fussy cutting, while listening to some oldie but goodies on the radio. I think my favorite parts of the card are the little birds pilgrim hat, and the picket fence.. Fun! OK, I am off and running... Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Partridge & Pears

 
Hey Everyone! I took advantage of the heat this last week to make a few samples for an upcoming demo meeting showcasing the new holiday catalog, and the blendabilites markers. I was asked to come up with a project, and some examples, so I have a share today of one of those samples. :)
 
 
I used the new set Partridge & Pears.. When I got the holiday catalog, I was immediately drawn to this set.. Probably considering it would be super fun to color with none other than SU's new Blendabilites markers.. *wink* Love the outcome and the markers! Hopefully you will give them a try too.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)

Frame for Neighbors

Hey Everyone! LONG time no post right?! No excuses this time, I have been away, and that is that. I needed a break, and thats what I did.

I used a retired set called Because I care for the Hydrangea image, and an old favorite color Kiwi Kiss too! Sorry for the picture quality, I guess I am a little rusty, considering the time away. OK, I am off to wrap this baby up, and get ready for their big day.. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

For Becky

 
Hey Everyone!.. I have a quick post of a card that I have made for my neighbors upcoming nuptials. I broke out the set Best of Brides and Babies for the first time.

For the Bride and Groom

 
Hey Everyone! I have a quick share this evening.. This weekend I will be attending a wedding, and wanted to share the card that I have made for the newlyweds.  I broke out some older papers, considering they are the brides colors, and a scrap of some old big box store DSP. Had to use it because it fit perfect -
 
 
 
I cased myself for this card, just changed up the colors, which I adore! Such beautiful combo of Purples and greens..I colored the image with copic markers, and am hoping that SU will come out with a similar color grouping with their new alcohol markers, blendabilites. I also made a scrap page/frame for them too, but do not want to share until I get permission from them considering I used their invitation/names on the page. So if I get the OK, I promise I will share that with you too! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Have a great weekend everyone!

They are really very similar and very close, and it doesn't surprise me at all. I think he really looks up to her. :)
Happy times!
OK, onto the card... I used contraband, so please forgive me, but this occasions called for it. 
 
 
 
I broke out my Paper Trey, By The Numbers dies, and some ancient Brilliant Blue card stock. I found a sheet of some big box store holographic DP. The congrats Grad and the congratulations banners are  from the SU set, Blue Ribbon.
