Fall 2013

Here is another card for next year.  I used the Perfectly Preserved stamps and die for the jar and one of the Papertrey sets for the pumpkins  I love the combination so you will be seeing them again.

I made one for Christmas this year.  I will post it later.  I want to make a few more.  There are just so many different ways to use the sets.

Keep looking for more.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas Card 2013

I was working on this card but I didn't finish it until after Christmas, so I will be using it next year.  You will probably see it again.

Once again, have a great day.

Penguin Card

My sister sent me a penguin card for Christmas. I just had to duplicate it.  I also found a similar one online that I wanted to show you.  You can find it here

I hope you enjoy both cards.  Have a great day.

More to come.

Telescope Thanksgiving Card

I love the telescope cards.  I want to make another for Christmas, or maybe even two.  They are such fun cards to make and to receive.

You can find the instructions over at SplitCoastStampers.   If you have never been to  SplitCoast, check it out.  It is a great site for getting ideas and for instructions.

I have one more to post but I am having trouble with the picture so I will wait until tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys looking at my card.

Thanksgiving Cards

As I said I am working on Thanksgiving Cards.  I need 32 and I only have about 15 ready.  But I am working on it.

The is the first card.  I saw a similar card on Pinterest.  Usually I like the original card better but I like the leaves on the top and bottom.

The tree is a Memory Box die.  I just love the die.

I hope you enjoy the card.  Have a great day.

Veterans Day

I think any one who serves in the military deserves our thanks and so much more.  Our country would not be the country it is without them.  I will always be extremely thankful for them.

This is the cards I made for Veterans Day. 

I hope you enjoy the card.

Another Mummy

Here is another mummy for you.  It is the Riley mummy.  He is just so cute.  I cut an extra head and 3d the mummy in the oval.

I still need to make about 8-10 more Halloween cards.  Hopefully I will get them finished and mailed next week.

I hope you enjoy the card.

Meljen's Designs

Five years ago, I would have never considered digital stamps.  I like the idea of stamping.  But since then I have changed my mind.

I recently ran across Meljen's Designs.   She has some of the cutest digital designs.  I purchased several of them.

This card was made with two of the images.  So far all of my Halloween cards have some kind of mummy on them.  I am not doing it on purpose, but I have gotten some really cute mummy stamps this year.  Wait a minute, the zig zag card, didn't have a mummy.  I forgot about it.

I hope you enjoy the card.

Zig Zag Card Tutorial

I don't know what to call this card and the site I saw it on didn't have a name either.  So until I found the correct name I am calling it Zig Zag.  I found the original card on Joan's Daily Stampede.  She made her card larger than mine.  I wanted to keep it at the standard 5 1/2" X 4 1/4".

I used the Penny Black Mimi Halloween set.  This is just the cutest set and stamps so well.  I will use the set over and over probably.

I hope you enjoy the card.

Flower Soft Globes

Here are two more 3D cards using the Flower Soft Globes.  I have several of these to use so you will be seeing them again.  I just need to finish cutting them out.

If you haven't seen the Flower Soft site, you should check it out.  I don't use it as often as I should but I do love the products.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Monochromic Halloween Card

Here is my first card of the Halloween season.  It is so hard to believe that it is the first week of October already.

I made this card last year but I didn't finish them in time for Halloween, so I cut out all of the pieces and made a kit.  This week, I put the cards together.

The pumpkin is a stamp by Prickley Pear.  It is a great stamp set and you can also purchase the pumpkin die to make cutting the pumpkins easy.

There are set has six different pumpkin scenes, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

I hope you enjoy the card and have a great day.

Flower Soft

I love playing with the flower soft.  While looking around their website, I ran around these cute card toppers.  You cut/punch out the pieces and using foam tape you 3d the picture.  I just adore them.

I thought I had a picture of the card but I can't find it so tomorrow, I will take another one post it on here.  This can be considered a sneak preview.

There will be more of these as the weeks go on.

Have a great day everyone.

Another Four Seasons Card

I have made several cards but I haven't taken the time to post them.  I will try to post a couple of them tonight.

This card is using the Stampin' Up Four Seasons set.  I embossed the background paper with the Stampin' Up Northern Flurry texture folder.

I saw a similar card at Sleepy in Seatle.  Go over and check out her card.

I loved the way the card came out.  Plus it puts me a head on my Christmas cards.  I usually try to make at least 50 cards and I like to get them mailed out the week after Thanksgiving.  I really need to get busy working on them, but Halloween comes first.

I hope you enjoy the card.  I will try to get at least one more posted tonight.

School's In

School started back on Tuesday so I am back at work.  It is also when I start making a transition from summer to fall to winter.  So you will start to see more fall cards. 

I like to take a stamp set and use it several different ways.  So the set I grabbed the other day was "Four Seasons" by Stampin Up.  I really liked this set.  There is just so many possibilities.  I have two cards today and I still want to make a fall one.

I am really bad about not posting details on my cards.  If you ever see one that you have a question about, please leave me a note.

September Birthday Cards

I am working on cards for all of my September birthdays.  I have a quite a few birthdays this months so there will be several cards.

I saw this card in my local scrapbooking store.  I thought it would be great for some of my birthdays.  The card below is my version of it.

Usually I don't uses but I made exception for this card.  I used a sticker for the HAPPY and the cupcake. 

I need to make some masculine cards next.  And a card for my son's 21st.

I hope you enjoy the cards.  If you make one similar I would love to see what you do to make it your own.

My Sister's Birthday

This week my sister has her 50th birthday.  She hates all birthdays but she really hates this one.  I just had to make a different card for her.

I saw a card similar to this years ago, but not as long.  I count out 50 candles for the inside.  The Stampin Up bird punch made the flames easy.

The stamps on the front are by Morning Star Stamps.  They are one of my favorite companies at the Novi Stamp Convention every year.

My sister love glitz and glitter so I put glitter on the candles.  I tried to make the inside look like a cake.  I know the candles should be on the top but she will just have to use her imagination.

I hope you enjoy the card.  Have a great day everyone.

Stampin Up Flower Folds

My stamping buddy is a Stampin Up demonstrator so I have lots of Stampin Up stamps.  The Flower Folds die, I borrowed from my Mom.  I used the Petals A Plenty texture folder and the little flowers in the center are punched with the Boho Blossom Punch and then accented with pearl gems.  I sponged the flower with Color Box Chalk Chestnut Brown.

I hope you enjoy my 6X6 card.

Welcome to my stamping page.  I have been stamping for over 20 years.  I love stamping, it is just one of the ways that I relax.  I make my own cards, however not all of them are my own creations.  When I snag an idea, I will try my best to post a link.

I hope you enjoy the page.  I will hopefully be posting a card later today.
