3 More UN convention Cards

Here are the last 3 cards that I made last weekend with all my scrappin sisters & friends. The stamp set I used is called "Because I Care". This stamp was stamped w/black staz on ink. I wanted to try some different colors on each card. My stampin sister Kim suggested that I cut out some flowers  and put them on the card to make them 3D. I did just that and I really love the way they turned out. I added the houndstooth embossing folder to the card front and added some glitter to the flowers. You can never have enough glitter they say and I must say that I do indeed love adding glitter. The 3 color ink that I used were Pale Plum, Blushing Bride & Daffodil Delight. I'm going to add either Happy Birthday or another sentiment to them at a later date.

Another UN-convention card

Happy Friday everyone. Here's another card that I made last Saturday w/my stampin sisters. I had alot of fun making this card and hopefully the little boy who will receive this card for his birthday will like it just as much (even though he already saw it when I messaged it to my bff Cheryl!). This stamp is our "extreme dirt bike".  I really enjoyed making this card. I used our ink spritzer to make it appear that the bike is kicking up lots of I used our houndstooth embossing folder on this card which made the stamp itself really pop out. I do hope you like it!! I'm going to post pictures of 3 more cards I made last weekend. They are the same stamp just different colors.

Unconvention Stamping Night!!

Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you that my stampin friends & I got together from noon until almost 10pm last night...and did we have fun!! We didn't attend the 2010 Stampin Up convention so we had an UNcovention get together. I was "supposed" to be there at noon but fun from Friday night made me late along with a wonderful flat tire! Thank goodness for bills because if I hadn't stopped to pay for one my tire could have blown out on the freeway which would have made my day horrible!! Anywho, I want to share with you a card I copied from the new catalog. It is soooooo adorable and I'm glad that my upline & good friend Julie was able to get the card recipe. I used the new "blushing bride" cardstock, with the new stamp set "Greeting card Kids". I used my favorite blender pen witht he colors blushing bride, cherry cobbler, old olive & chocolate chip to color in the card. I hope you like it as much as I had fun making it!

Birthday Card

Hi everyone...I know 2 posts in one week?!?! What's wrong w/me you might ask?? I have no idea so if you figure it out...let me know I made a card similar to this awhile  back but changed it up a little bit by adding some really cute brads. I wanted to use up some retired dsp (that I'm still in love with btw). I do hope you enjoy it..if you do, let me know with a comment. Hope everyone is having a "cool" Sunday!!

Stamp Club Project

Good afternoon everyone! In Merced, we're on our way to close to 100 degrees today. I'm very thankful today (and every other hot day!!) for air conditioning.  This past Saturday was Stamp Clubs Hostess Appreciation night. Thanks to Julie for having us do 2 fun and easy projects. The food won an honorable mention...Julie definately outdid herself (as usual) Here is one of the projects we did Saturday night. This is a really cute post it note holder. It's actually an acrylic picture frame w/Stampin Up's newest DSP "Greenhouse Gala". I love this paper. It's very colorful and rather trendy looking. I do hope you like what i've made.

New Catalog Out

Hi everyone!! I haven't posted in over a month and i really do want to start posting more projects that i've done. This card was inspired by a stampin connection post but I changed it up a bit. As you can tell, I love Pink!! I was also thinking about soft serve ice cream this past weekend (and was good and didn't have any!) Anywho...i love this set. It's called "Sweet Scoops" from our summer mini. After all, isn't one of the best things of summer ice cream?!?! Well, I think so (that and Taco Salad!). You can purchase this set until August 31st 2010.  I used Sweet Scoops w/pretty in pink and one of our new "In" colors "Crumb Cake". This ice cream looks good enough to eat I say. I also used "Birthday Wishes" sentiment from our New Catalog Hostess level 3 set "Occasional Quotes". I do like how this card came out and I hope that you do too!!
