Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Happy Holidays Everyone!!!
So this year I am not feeling the Christmas spirit at all. I am not sure why but I did give it my best effort. I made a few cards for a few special people in my life.
I fell in love with these shaker cards so that is what I made.
The stamp is Close to My Heart, I used stickles (lots of stickles on this one) I colored with my Close to My Heart markers as well.
This card I embossed the snowflake background and colored with my water pencils!! I used stickles on this as well
So this card I used Bo Bunney paper and a new snowman stamp and my favorite saying (this year anyway) "Snowmen fall from heaven unassembled" I used liquid appliqué, colored with my Close to My Heart Markers and well put in way too much glitter for the snow!!! But I still love it!!

Retierment Card

My father in law has just retired so I made him this card I borrowed the stamps from my GF "Cheri" and they were perfect for this card!! I believe that they are Stampin up stamps, I used a bit of bling and colored him with my water pencils. I forgot to take a picture of the card before I gave it away so I had to ask for my Mother in Law to send me some pictures of it for me!! What a GREAT LADY!!
Thanks for looking and sorry it took me so long to get some card making done!! I am in the middle of making the perfect birthday card for a friend of mine (who is so picky) so it has to be perfect so I will be posting more soon!! :)

Moved and slowly getting settled!

Hey all I have to apologize for not updating my blog! We have now moved into our new house on the lake and are slowly getting settled!! I managed to get a nasty cold just after we moved in so that made the whole unpacking process that much slower!! The room that I have chosen for my scrapbook room had no lights in it. So over the weekend I plugged in some lights and had Cheri come over for the afternoon. It was hard to color and stuff in such poor light so I asked my husband to wire in a light for me and guess what I have a light in my scrapbook room (it is so bright in there I am sure that a plane will land in there soon!) now so I can start unpacking my things!! I am so excited!! So hopefully I can post some exciting new projects very soon!!!! :)

The Sugar Bowl Challenge

So over at the Sugar Bowl the challenge this week is a beautiful sketch and amazing candy for the winner so I just couldn't resist!!! Below is the sketch we are to follow and below that is my take on the sketch.
I am not sure what paper I used just grabbed some out of my stash. I made the background paper with blue glitter ritz and a glue pad. Then I used a holographic glitter ritz on the snow flakes on the image and used stickles around the image and around the Winter Wonderland saying as well. I also used pearls on the border as well. and for the bottom I used some snowflake brads that I had. What can I say I love blue & glitter!!!
I hope you enjoy!

I started making this card from a Whiff of Joy sketch got frustrated and just did it my own way!! Talk about not following the rules!!
I used my new Whiff Of Joy Stamp "Fall Willow with Grapes". I colored with water pencils, blended with a water pen. I also added Glitter to all the grapes and also to accent the dress. I love the blues in this card!!

So I colored this one with my water pencils and used my water pen. The stamp is Eulanda's Haagen-Daz Bear by whipper snapper that is being held hostage by Cheri at this moment!! LOL The saying on the front Is "I scream, you scream we all scream for ice cream" I also used a cherry charm from Cheri's collection of stuff!! because that one side was missing something!! On the inside there is a Thinking of you stamp.

Thursday, September 3, 2009

So this is my favorite card of all time! I used Hannah stamps for this one on the cover is says "I am having a party and you are not invited" and on the inside of the card is says "Put your big girl panties on and deal with it!" OMG I love this card!!! The skull stamps are from Stampin up, the Goth stamp was from a good friend of mine and I also used a cuttle bug embossing folder with skulls on it as well! What can I say my daughter loves skulls!!!
I made this card for the Whiff of Joy challenge. I had so much fun making this card. I used the new Fall Stamps by "Whiff of Joy" for this card. Yes I am addicted to the Whiff of Joy Stamps they are so beautiful!! I have colored the images with water pencils and used my water brush as well.
I made this card with my daughter for a friends birthday. She did the coloring and I did everything else! She is one talented girl!! Anyway I used my favorite stamps "Whiff of Joy" Party animal. I used "Hot lips" Glitter Ritz for the for the outside and the inside of the card and a fiskars border punch on the outside. The sentiment stamp on the outside is a close to my heart stamp.
