U R Fantastic

Well just had to enter this stamp. I was a find at one of those stamp swaps. I pick up lots of for a bargain. There where so many of us there. This a stampin up stamp and came with (originally 4 ) 2 other "household" images...this was sale.
I put that new smooches ink/paint for the fan. It really gives that silvery feel for appliances and such. Paper from DCWV. some tiny mosaic squares that glisten. All glitter in the paper is hard to see but it there and helps with retro feel. Base paper Bazill Bling and a square of black.

Bloom with Happiness

Hello All,
World card making day is Oct 3rd! So in honor I am participating in the card swap at the LSS !!! So I signed up for the general theme. I choose this flower element from the Creative Imaginations already has flocking and color. This paper did suit better for cards. The base Med Tan embossed with clear polka dots, green bazill cardstock. A snippet of ribbon and button finish it off. For the sentiment stamp by stampin up. I also made two other sentiments (*Just a Note* and *Thinking of You*) so the recipient can choose which on will fit their needs. I hope they like it and will use it:)

Simple Joys

A more serious and thoughtful type of card. I am loving it he fall season and the colors. I also tried the flower soft for that leaf effect on the ground. It does give it that texture feel. I must admit I went to a stamp re sale event at a LSS. I bought bunch of stuff Whoa!! This tamp above is just one of those fine examples. Who says old can't be new again? The paper, ribbon, outline ink, base sentiment and button is from PTI. Memento Ink and copics for the rest.

Autumn Leaf

Hello All
This is for my weekly stamping class I am following at PCP. The main idea is to use a scope of colors on one stamp. Since I did not have those particular brand of ink pads... I just inked my stamp up using a fall color scheme. Worked out good! I used all Memento inks, Bazill cardstock, PTI patterned paper, ribbon and button (the rustic brown). Sentiment by A Muse, stamp by stampin up.

Ghouls Just Want to have Fun!

Having the Halloween fun! The sketch is from the PCP weekly challenge, what a creative sketch. I used my nestabilities paisley die to make my ghosts then hand drawing the faces in. A Muse spider web stamp embossed in black placed on Cosmo Cricket paper from the Halloween collection (lasts years). A computer generated sentiment placed on Melon berry paper from PTI that was edged in that gooey drippy punch by Martha Stewart. I know the hubs liked this card by all the Halloween noises he was making after I showed to him:)

Baby Onesies

I made some baby cards for some gals at work having babies. I love this Sizzix die cut, how cute is that? I will make other patterns , it what ever you make to be. I have the motivation to learn to set snaps. The expecting joy stamp is from Amuse, Most all paper is from PTI (old stuff they do not do 12 by 12 anymore), the boy paper is Twinkle Twinkle. Ribbon is Offray. I made the bibs to fit by cutting a 2 inch circle then outlining around the neck area, cutting on the line. The ribbon was first glued to the bib collar. The bow was made separate then adhered to the bib.

I guess I will be the one shopping...
I started just trying to figure out what to do so what better than Christmas candy for all those kids. Candy Canes are an all time favorite so I picked the Candy Jars stamp by Impression Obsession. It colored with some glitter pens so I hope it shows in the picture.

Caring Nurse

I was making a card for a coworker who had a bad day at work just for some support. I used that ribbon ruffling technique from Lisa Johnson (PTI Designer), it was just the thing for that added punch! This a Clear Art stamp from the Feeling Yucky set. The paper is PTI Pure Poppy and ribbon, white card stock also PTI. I used Copics to color her. The bottom oval is from AMuse. The sentiment was something I got at the craft store discount bin, no markings. So the Heartwarming Vintage and Crafty Secrets is having the challenge of the week...a red white and blue card!!! So you know I had to post it over there to:)
