Shabby Cycle

I have to say this is one of my most favorite cards that I have made in a while.  I love the layers of this card along with the little details.  This card was featured at one of my more recent Card Buffets and I believe there were none left over.  I would like to see how this card would turn out in Midnight Muse or Night of Navy, I bet that would be gorgeous as well.  Have a great day

Fall Ensemble

I have to give a big Thank You to Kat for taking this picture for me.  I think she did such a good job on the layout and lighting I should hire her to take all my pics. I have commented several times that picture taking is not my forte.  I think everyone had an enjoyable evening created these three projects with the Wonderfall Stamp Set and Sweater Weather DSP.  I hope to begin to offer classes similar to this more often because they are quite enjoyable and versatile.

Bubby Helps Stamp

Here is my most favorite picture on my blog - my very own Steele aka Bubby.  Steele wanted to help the girls finish up their fall frame ensemble class because they were keeping him up late...LOL
Both of my dogs like to help stamp, or maybe, they just like to help bum snacks from all my stampin' friends.  Either way, they are never too far away.  I will post a picture of our finished projects tomorrow.

A Wonderfall Thank You

This Thank You card will be featured in my next card buffet - All Thank You's.  I used Clear Block E to stamp Pistachio Pudding on the front of this card. Always make sure you have some extra padding under you stamping surface when you stamp with clear blocks.  I then used Calypso Coral for the the leaf (from Wonderfall) and the Sentiment is from Lots of Thanks.  I finished off the card with a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  I hope everyone likes it!

The Bright Side of Clock Works

This is a card I made for a recent All Occasion Card Buffet - please forgive the sentiment, we must have "bumped" the card with a baby wipe during all of our stampin' fun!!  I really like the versatility of this set.  I have used it for masculine cards and then I paired it with some bright colors like Tangerine Tango and Bermuda Bay.  Some of my stampers were so good they did not even need to use the Stamp a ma jig to make the clock face, how awesome is that???

I'm Back

Once again, my blog has suffered when my life got a little busy.  You can't say that you are surprised right???
I made this card for a very dear friend who had surgery a few weeks ago.  I have to say I am in love with this Hostess Set - Simply Sketched.  It is so simple yet so elegant.  I used my friends current favorite color - Strawberry Slush with Garden Green.  I really like the soft effect of the Mosaic Madness embossing folder on the Whisper White background.  Do you see the "hand stitching" I added to the Garden Green??? Hope your day is filled with stampin'
