Nerdy Girl

I love this stamp set that I used on this card.  I haven't used it yet because I wasn't to confident in my coloring skills.  So today I just decided, what the heck, and started coloring.  I really am happy with the result and am looking forward to the next card!! 

I used the sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday for this card.

Oh Happy Day

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Today is a perfect day to craft in my neck of the woods.  It's a bit chilly and cloudy.  Looks like more rain is headed our way.

I decided to create a birthday card today for the challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  I combined it with a great sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!  I did something a little different this time.  I decided to get all the elements stamped and cut out BEFORE adhering anything down.  This gave me the opportunity to make sure I liked the way it was going.  I usually tape first and decide later.  Not the best way to go about it lol.

The challenge at Seize the Birthday is always anything goes birthday but this time the "topping" is "Sweet Treats".  I decided on using cupcakes as my "sweets"

Here is the sketch I used
SS: cricut artiste collection birthday
INK: tangerine tango, crushed curry, pistachio pudding
CS: crushed curry, whisper white, confetti celebration dsp
ACCESS: regals & brights candy dots, basic jewel rhinestones
TECH: fussy cutting

Happy Hallween Web

Good morning! Today is the first day I've been home and my kids have been in school. Woohoo! I thought I'd have more fun time, but my poor house needed some attending to. 

I recently went to the Scrapbook Expo here in St. Charles IL and found these great stamps! I've seen them there before but never really took the time to look.  Boy am I glad I did this year.  Such great stamps and the ideas are endless.  They are Stamps By Judith and Heather

The card I have for you today is one of there September projects.  Such a cool technique.  I changed a few of the colors and it does look a bit different but I just had to share.

SS: web, spider, taffy, candy corn
INK: tuxedo black, melon mambo, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, rich razzleberry,
CS: melon mambo, tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry, very vanilla
Here is video on this card.  Check it out!

Give thanks & Two Challenges

I am loving these two challenges! The card sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday is such a neat one and it got me to do a technique that I haven't done in a very long time, embossing!!

I also combined it with a really cool color combo this week from Colour Me...!  I would never have thought these colors would work together and was pleasantly surprised when they melded together quite nicely!

Here is my card. 
SS: lovely as a tree, and many more
CS: chocolate chip, very vanilla, marina mist, pink pirouette, tangelo twist
INK: chocolate chip, versa mark
ACCESS: early espresso embossing power, hemp, artisan studs

Penquin Birthday

I am loving my new stamps!  Penguins are one of my most favorite things so when I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it.  The funny thing is, is that it took me about 2 1/2 hours of walking around the scrapbook expo before I bought him!!

It took my hubby to tell me to go ahead and get him that I finally added him to my basket (along with a ton of other stamps lol) and I'm so glad I did!!

I used the color challenge over at Colour Me...! for this card.  The colors are so light and crisp that I decided to color my penguin in greys instead of black.

Here is my card.  I used ink pads and water color pens to color in the hat and penguin.
SS: lg fat penguin, birthday hat, and many more
INK: calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe, lost lagoon, tuxedo black
CS: lost lagoon, crisp cantaloupe, calypso coral, whisper white, smoky slate
ACCESS: silver sparkle hemp cord, zig zag embossing folder

Happy Pumpkin Day

I went to the Scrapbook Expo here in Illinois today and got some really cool new stamps! I am so excited about these that I couldn't wait to create something with them.  I am so glad that I had my girlfriend with me or I never would have seen this tree stamp that has so many possibilities!
I decided to use the sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday (you know I love their sketches), and it worked out perfectly!!
Here is my card.  I might have mentioned at some point that I LOVE all things Halloween! I just had to have the candy corn stamps and pumpkin to go along with this tree.
