Fabulous giveaway!

Too Darn CUTE!

So, since my kids are all sick today, I was off to Walgreens to stock up on medicine. I was walking through the magazine section when I spotted this magazine called Stamp It! It's the Spring 2007 issue. I started looking and saw this adorable purse box with matching notecards. I just had to buy the magazine and come home and make it. Mine is a little different, but close. I used the Paisley stamp from the Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set with Versamark ink on the Pretty in pink cardstock. Then I stamped the K from my Headline alphabet set and framed the letter with the stamp from Lable Classics. I just think this is cute. The purse easily holds 6 note cards and 6 envelopes!

Polka Dots & Paisley

Here's a card I made playing around with some new stuff. I used the Jumbo Petals Wheel from the Spring Mini for the background with Pretty in Pink Ink. Then I stamped the flower from the Polka Dot & Paisely stamp set using Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Taken with Teal Markers. I used Old Olive for the stem. I added these cute little Rhinestones I found in the Dollar section at my local JoAnn's.

No time to stamp

Hello everyone. Sorry for not posting anything. My daughter had her tonsils out a week ago and life has been hectic! My oldest son started soccer practice last week, and now is home sick. I have a bunch of new stamps and accessories coming soon, so I hope to be able to play soon! In the meantime, if you have a card you'd like to see me post on my blog, please email it to me in jpeg format! I'd love to showcase your work.

Circle Punch Card

Here's a very cool card idea that my downline Judy shared with me. I did vary it a bit. I used different size circle punches to punch out the different colors. I used Appricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Lavender Lace, and mounted them on black cardstock. Then I used my Souffle gel pens to outline each circle. Then I used the Word Window punch to punch out a piece of Appricot Appeal and took the letters from Alphabits to make the "thanks" part. It is a super cool card!

Simple Scrappin' Cards

I just love using the Simply Scrappin' kits to create quick and easy cards. Here are a few examples using the Party Pieces Kit. I have been able to create 60 cards from this one kit, with the edition of 30 sheets of colored cardstock for the bases! I even have sticker left over and cardstock to make 2- 6x6 scrapbook pages! This will be one of the options for my upcoming Stamp camp in April.
