Wednesday Wowzer, Hooray!

14 Nov
I made it, not even late!
I was inspired, today, since I saw an old friend, sort of, today, and I hope that I will see her again tomorrow to give this to her.
I manage a small gym in my very small town and I have not seen this one lady,that I adore, in awhile because **GASP** she has been going elsewhere for her workouts!  I know small town scandals, I could tell you a few! Any how, I saw her today but just missed her, so I’m hoping tomorrow I can catch her and give this to her.  She is the epitome of STYLE and this card is especially for her!
I have used the Love in an Instant – KOM May 2012 set for this card.
For the sentiment I have done one of my favorite things which is to just cut and piece phrases from ones I like to come up with a phrase that suites my needs.
I had the pewter charm that says
“be yourself”, which fit this card perfectly.
Here is one last look at my “couture” stylin’ card.
I hope you like it!
I’ll be back next Wednesday to WOW you again!

Thankful Thursday

Today’s post, you will not read any complaints from me.
I have made some Thank-you cards to hand out to some dear friends who have touched my heart.
For that reason, this will be a thankful post and I hope to get through this with no complaining whatsoever.
I made 4 cards, they are all somewhat similar, with slight variations.
They all have this sentiment inside.
The first part is a stamps from the Unity May 2012 Love in an Instant set.
The 2nd part is just words I printed out from my computer.
It was my birthday on Sunday and I had some friends who went over and above their call of duty in recognizing that it was my birthday. So these cards are for those friends who I wanted to say thank you to.
Each card is different, in the way the borders are done.
Some have patterned paper,
some have washi tape and some have border stickers.
Here they are all lined up.
I love making a group of cards together
.
Its a great way to get a lot of people takes care of at one time, and by just mixing your embellishments, you can easily make each card unique so they do not end up looking exactly the same.
So did I make it with out complaining?  I hope so!!
The set I used to were

Wednesday Wowzer PLUS!!

7 Dec

How are you today?

It is ME, you know the blog writer, with a fun new project with some {ippity} stamps.

I can say I do make these things for fun, but it is my effort to invite you over to I Heart {ippity} in hopes that you will try these fun stamps for yourself.

It also happens to be a time for celebration.  Our {ippity} leader in inviting you all to her birthday celebration where she is having some FABULOUS giveaways.

Be sure to check her HOME blog here:

Today I wanted to show you a little ornament I came up with using the set CUPPY CAKES.

I took a Canvas Corp star and stamped the cupcake image onto it…

…I then stamped the cupcake on to various papers from the

My Minds Eye Ooh La La For Her line.

I added some hot fix pink pearls in swirl fashion and made the BABY trinket from Epiphany Crafts Shape Tool that I got the most wonderful deal on from YOUR SCRAPBOOK SUPPLY.

My final touch was to add the dangling beads and a flower made from Cheery Lynn Designs new roll up flower called CUTIES 3.  I made it this way so it could be used as a Baby’s 1st Christmas OR just a BABY of the family ornament.  It could even just be a room decoration, what do you think?

Think outside the box, that seems to be my motto!

Head on over to I Heart {ippity} we have such creative gals!

I love everything they make, every week.

Go and see for yourself.

Have a great day and remember this is the season of giving, not the season of stress and greed!  Relax and enjoy and don’t get caught up in the worldly view of this season.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Supplies:

Canvas Corp Canvas Star

Staz-On Ink-Timber Brown

 Epiphany Crafts Shape Tool

My Minds Eye Ooh La La For Her

Sweet Stamps new Challenge “Anything Goes”

4 Oct

Anything Goes…This is my kind of challenge!

No restrictions.

I just got a batch of new Sweet Stamps and I was so excited I was able to do anything I wanted to do.

I chose to do a clean and simple card.

The Sweet Stamps I used are:

Rose & Leaf Bold

Beautiful Day

I colored the roses with Pearlescent Watercolor Paints.  I have been using these paints a lot lately and LOVE THEM.

After I painted them, I added matching glitter and then put an acrylic dimensional topcoat on them to make them shine and stand out.

I finished with some Rhinestones from Rhinestone Hues and that’s all for this card.

Now, who can resist a challenge where you can do anything you want?

Head on over to http://sweetstampsblog.blogspot.com/ to participate in this challenge, just starting today.

You have a chance to win a $20.00 cert. to Sweet Stamps.com and believe me, that is a FUN win!
