Baseball All Star

From Cards

My nephew was on his baseball all-star team, so this was his b-day card. The colors are weird on this screen, but I think it's Wild Wasabi and Old Olive??? The baseball player is from SU! Alphabet stamps from Hobby Lobby, and the star is actually a clear sticker placed over cardstock and cut out. Square brads from Spare Parts.

Thanks for stopping by!


Stationery envelope and cards

This is a stationery set that we made, again, at a stamping party. We made the envelope to hold it all with 12x12 sheet, cut down to size. Here is the front. The medallion was stamped on sparkly glittery white cardstock, which, as always, is much prettier IRL.

This is the stamp holder on the inside flap of the envelope.

From Cards
Here it is fully opened... a slot for stamps, one for cards, and one for envelopes.

Here it is with all the cards and coordinating envelopes in view.

Here is the first card I made... Thinking of you. I REALLY struggled to get this card to work for me... it took about 15 tries, I think! Thanks for my missing mojo! I finally got it to work well enough that I was OK with it!

From Cards

Here's the last card... the sentiment says "Birthday Wishes," if you can't read it. The silver gel pen used doesn't always photograph so well!
From Cards

Most of the stamps used were SU!, with the exception of the silver flowers on the second card. I'm not sure where those came from. Colors are Blue Bayou and Soft Sky, as well as silver.

I sent this to my grandma... she LOVED it! She is so funny - she loves to brag about my stamping to her friends that stamp. It makes me feel good about my stamping, and of course, she always gets the extra cards that I make at stamping parties, etc., that I wouldn't normally send out! It's always nice when people appreciate your work!


Thinking of You

From Cards
We made this card at a stamping party, so I can't take any credit for it. I actually used it as an anniversary card since the pp says "love" right above the felt flowers. This is all SU! stuff, but I don't really know the details. The flower bkgd on the Groovy Guava is a jumbo wheel. I really like this one!


Birthday Cake

From Cards

This was another SIL's birthday card.

Cardstock: white from Walmart, SU! pp in Real Red (6x6 pack)
Ink:Basic Black, Red glitter gel pen, Silver gel pen, yellow gel pen
Other: Marvy oval punch, white ribbon from Walmart, Real Red heart eyelets from SU!, and silver paint pen
I doodled around the perimeter of the oval with a silver gel pen.


Thinking of You

From Cards

The color on this picture is weird, but you get the idea. I've been struggling with my "mojo" in stamping quite a bit lately, so when I saw this card kit on clearance at Hobby Lobby, I snatched it up! I added the Rose Romance (retired) heart eyelets and stamped a little on the inside. I don't remember who makes this kit, either, but I'll try to remember to edit it in when I get a chance.


Give yourself a big hug!

From Cards

This was made for a family member whose spouse was not able to be with them on their anniversary. I made 2 of the exact same card, only with the colors reversed. This polar bear and the sentiment below are also from Gina K designs, I think. The "Thinking of you" sentiment is SU!

Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi (and of course, white from WALMART!), PP in the same colors from the 6x6" mat pack.
Ink: same as above
Other: Corner punch SU!, white heart eyelets from SU!, Heart shape stencil and free-hand cut

Thanks for visiting!

My SIL is Mexican, and is very proud of her culture. I made this card for her son. It's very bright and colorful... not my normal style, but I ended up liking it a lot. Every piece of cardstock in the bkgd is stamped with Versamark and a different pattern dealing with birthdays.

Cardstock: SU! Basic Black,Brilliant Blue, Cool Carribean, Garden Green, Only Orange, YoYo Yellow, Real Red
Inks: same as above, plus Basic Gray
Other: Deckle edge on my cutter, Silver gel pen

TFL! :-)


Husband & Wife

From Cards

This was an anniversary card for my brother & SIL. I LOVE these giraffes! I think they are Gina K... I borrowed them from a friend, so I'm not sure. I just bent the front giraffe stamp over a bit when I stamped it (which took quite a bit of manipulating!) :-) I love how their spots look like hearts.

Cardstock; So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate PP
Ink: Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi
The card shape was made with a stencil, and cut out by hand (no Nestibilities here!) :-)
The Wasabi layer is cut with my cutter with the deckle edge.

Thanks for stopping by!


Birthday Wishes

From Cards

This was my niece's birthday card... she turned 7 this summer.

Cardstock is SU! Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery and Retired slumber party PP.
Ink: Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, Cool Carribean, and Certainly Celery.
Marvy Scalloped Square punch.
Cupcake is paper-pieced with different white cardstock that I just stamped different colors.

If you want any more info (like what stamp sets I used) just leave a comment. I'm posting these from my laptop while watching a ball game with my husband, so I don't know all the names of the stamp sets. :-)

Thanks for visiting!


Wishing you Love

From Cards

Sorry, I couldn't get a nice clear picture of this one. This is an anniversary card. The Precious Moments stamp I've had FOREVER! The paisley stamp is SU! as is the sentiment. The sentiment is underneath a clear sticker. Cardstock is Buckaroo Blue from SU!, as is the ink. PM stamp colored in with markers.


Soldier - You are in my thoughts and prayers

This is a card I made for a family member who was deployed recently. I took the pictures separately before I placed the vellum layer over top so that you could see the detail. I LOVE this card!

I don't remember now what all I used for this, but it was a combination of SU! stamps. Cardstock is Brilliant Blue, Silver and Ruby Red. Soldier image was colored in with Old Olive marker. Star (behind soldier) is cut-out from a stencil free-hand. Vellum, silver eyelets, and silver embossing powder were also used. Sentiments and praying hands stamps were all purchased at Hobby Lobby.
