Love you Lots

Happy Sunday,

I'm taking a break from school work.  I had to take a final today for a 5 week Finance class and I am happy to say I score a 98%, now I just have to do the essay part of the exam. I do love going to school but I think I might love stamping a wee bit more.  I thought I would take a break and atleast blog about some stamping.

This card is the card I made for my daughter for Valentines Day.  I had a lot of fun with this one.  I got to use the new water color pencils and she loves elephants so this was perfect for her.  I stamped the elephant from the Love you Lots stamp set (this is a hostess set) on shimmery white CS with Staz-on ink since I was going to be doing a litte water coloring.  If you haven't tried the water color pencils yet you are missing out.  I love these pencils and I have tried several different brands and these ones are AMAZING!

These are a new item and are very popular.  You can find them in the occasions catalog.  Item # 141709 $16.00  The DSP I used is also from the occasions catalog and is called cupcakes & carousels.

Well I guess I had better get back to my school work.  I will be back soon with the final card in my Valentines Day series.  See you soon:)

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
