5 minute card

I love these new rub-ons....Well they are new to me at least. A friend I met on splitcoast had me over for a stamping day a few weeks ago and gave me a pack of these rub ons. This whole cards was done in literally 5 minutes......Just a little paper piercing and ta da!

Another Bella Birthday...

I am on a bella kick!......This is PMSaBella. I just love that she is kicked back with some junk food. Sometimes that is exactly how I want to spend my birthday. I used crystal effect on the kernels of popcorn and it turned out super cute! Also used some more of that design paper I LOVE! I am going to be so sad to use my last sheet :(
I will be gone for memorial day weekend as I am going camping......and I will be going through withdrawals since I will have no stamp stuff :(

1st of many Bella Birthdays

This was made for my Boyfriends' sister who turned 24 over this last weekend. I used markers to color the bellas and of course this was another addition from my wonderful WRAK group on splitcoast. I love this new design paper I bought at Big Lots....of course I went back to buy another slab and it was already gone. I can not believe the "finds" I have found at Big Lots....

Pregnant Bella WRAK

I said I have been receiving some bellas lately and by have I! This could not have come at a better time. My cousin and her husband recently found out they are expecting their first child and she wanted to wait until the first trimester was over before getting super excited. This came just in time for me to make her a congratulations. Of course I tried to make it gender neutral since she doesn't find out what she is having until June 12th. I have really been into the pink and the celery lately!

Splitcoast Forum

On split coast their is a group called DSS (Design Secret Siblings) It goes for 3 months and in that time you send "secret santa" sorta stuff to your "little sister" You do not get to reveal yourself to your until the last month when you send them a "reveal gift" This is the card I made for my little sister as she has said her favorite color is Pink. I hope she enjoys it and I am going to start collecting stuff to give to her for her "Reveal gift" soon as the three months do pass by pretty fast.

Embrace Life Wedding Card

So A friend of the family had recently got married and this was the card I made for her Bridal shower. I used water color crayons and my blender pen to color the flowers and also used the masking technique. I also used my cuttlebug embossing folder which honestly I do not use enough at all.

Happy Anniversery

My Boyfriends Aunt celebrated her 2nd anniversary Tuesday and this was the card I made....Of course it was on super short notice and I realized I really need some sentiment stamps that say simple things like "Happy Anniversary." I put the bottom picture on here to show how shimmery this chalk really is. This is my first card using this pack of paper from stampin up

New (non) Stampin Up stamp!

This is my first Paper Pretties Stamp. Meet Sophia.....

This is one of the cutest stamps and her sentiment is great "Cuddle Me" Absolutely adorable! I did Paper Piece her dress, which was a little hard as this DP was actually Designer Card stock so a bit bulky for the shoulder.

I have a few more Sophia's on the list especially flutterby!

Happy (Belated) Mothers Day

Happy Belated Mothers day!

I had a very hectic weekend....My boyfriends parents and My mom finally met.....So I was a tad nervous, and I wasn't feeling to well either so that made it a little stressful for me. It went great though and I just can't wait for Memorial Day Weekend which will be pure relaxation :)

This was my mothers day card. I stamped the image in Versamark And used shimmer chalk to "dab" on the image. I learned This Technique from Jillian Winters ( I had to do 6 of these for the grandmothers and mothers in my life.....I was very excited with how these turned out! of course I used my new favorite stamp set "Essence of Love". I have a stack of three stamp sets and I feel like I use these for almost every card I do.....I definitely feel like I got my moneys worth though, but I feel guilty for the pretty rubber collecting dust. I have received some great Bella and Fella images from WRAK over on splitcoast. What a great group of ladies!!!

Here is the inside of my mothers day card!

Last Sunday, I had a wonderful stamp day with my Aunt. She has bought the new set from Stampin' Up. I will admit that this is one set I thought it was cute, but thought I would never use it.....I shoulda known better! I wanted to play with the gamsol technique and prismacolors and that is how I colored the flower. I also really wanted to use my new notch punch that was actually still in the package and I bought it a month ago (I know, I know.....crazy that something still stayed in the package!)

Here is another card I made with the same technique. I also used the new cuttlebug emboss folder (swiss dots) that my aunt had bought. Of course every where I looked it was sold out so I bought it on E-Bay just because I HAD to have it!

Hope you like the new additions! I have some great cards coming up that I can not wait to SHARE with you all :)

Now I have to run to Michael's because it is their last day of having the Design Paper at 4 for 1$ .... Can't beat a deal like that

Birthday Bella

I admit I am in LOVE with the bellas.....the problem is I have not purchased any. My stampin up demo owns a lot so I have stamped a lot of images to play with so I can see which ones I will purchase in the future. This is really one of my first cards using the brights. I am much more of an earth tone or soft subtles person. I am trying to start new things though. Also, I am not much for using my glitter mainly cause it is so messy so I even broke out of the box for that too. Hope you like.
