Hispanic Night

Just finished up at Hispanic Night and I had a ton of fun I even got to sit by Jan (inkerzaway from splitcoast who I adore)!!  This little box was the make and take we got to make .... isn't it cute?!?!  I love it!!  This is my favorite set (yes I know I say that all the time) from the Hispanic Catalog.

Vanilla Scoop

 Doesn't this card just look yummy!!  I love it .... but I am fond of this set!!  Here I took the Ice Cream image from the mouthwatering set and created this vanilla flavored scoop.  And yes it is embossed with the vanilla scented ep!!  Other than that it's just more simple layers.  Happy Stamping!!

Ooh and the next posts will becoming from convention so stay tuned!!

Simply Soft Vaulted Card

This card showcases the previous hostess set Simply Soft.  I thought this set went well with the dreaded paisley petals DSP.  This was another one of those cards that had lotsa layers .... I think it was a phase I went through.  The colors I used here were river rock (I know I don't use it too often), always artichoke and very vanilla.  Happy Stamping!!

Mambo Madness

Oops guess I didn't schedule enough posts.  I had more dental work done ... then was frantically trying get everything ready for convention in my last three days.  I'll sharing some cards that I had in my vault that went to my last secret sister; didn't want to ruin the surprise!  So a few of these will have now retired product them on them but since many of you keep your sets forever like me I'm sure you could still use the ideas!! On this one I used the Triple Treat Flower and embossed it in Melon Mambo!  Love all the pink on this card even though I am sooo not a pink kinda gal.  The rest of this card is all about the layers! Happy Stamping!!

Delightful Cupcake

This was a card I made during th spring that I didn't have a chance to share while the occasions mini was current.  I used the set called Sweet Cake!!  It's a super fun set to make layers with since it was designed with lots of detail.  I stamped the main image several different times using different colors to get all the layers I wanted.  The frosting is embossed with crystal clear ep to give it that frosting type look.  I swear this card looked good enough to eat!!  My favorite part though is the ribbon .. to create the dual color I just used my marker along on edge of it.  Too cute huh!??!  Happy Stamping!!

Orange Creamsicle

Mouthwatering originally came out in the mini catalog and I was sooo happy that it made it into the big catty!!  Here's a super simple card I made using this set!  Since I was a kid those orange creamsicles were my favorite ice cream and wanted to recreate the joy of biting that first bite!  The side ice creams are embossed with clear ep and the center with Tangerine Tango EP to make it pop a bit more.  I used the scallop punch to take a bite out of it as well as adding a mini popsicle stick.  Happy Stamping!!

Over the Top Butterfly!

Remember how I was saying sometimes I need to go simple well this isn't one of those times ... this one is a little over the top!! Oh so pretty but over the top!  This was definitely one of those cards that should be hand delivered.  I cut out the butterfly with the butterfly die and then added some stamping to their wings with the set Vintage Vogue (now retired) and a bit of sponging.  I then layered them onto a rosette I made with the Designer Rosette die which gives this card a lot of width.  Then added ribbon, pearls some shimmer paint and poof all prettied up!!  Happy Stamping!!

Up Up and Away!!

This is such a fun little set called Up Up & Away and I have wanted this set forever!!  Here I used it on a very simple mailable card.  (Sometimes I get a little carried away)  Here I layered 2 of the balloons on top of some stamped clouds that I dressed up with clear dazzling details, I also stamped those same little clouds on the tempting turquoise base.The orange strip i ran through the big shot with the hounds tooth EF.  Happy Stamping!!

Friends Forever

 This card was made using the set Lean on Me ... it's such a cute little set that is perfect to send to a friend.  Here I used the image with the two best friends hanging out, I colored them in using my water color crayons!!  (love those!!)  I chose the colors by the DSP colors I had lying on my desk ... gotta use up those scraps!!  (Really it's because I'm too lazy to go across the room ad get some out of the drawer.)  Other than that just some simple layering and the cards done!!  Oh and I of course ran the base through the big shot using my dotted EF.  Happy Stamping!!

Zoo Review Zebra

Zoo Review has been a favorite set of mine and here is another card I made using the Zebra stamp.  I went with an unusual color scheme here by using Pumpkin Pie which really brightened up the card.  I stamped the Zebra with Staz On then added some more "color" to him my water color crayons.  Other than that it was just all about adding layers.  Happy Stamping!!

This card is actually kind of strange and cute at the same time! I used the set Button Buddies ... the cute little pig one.  While I was cutting out the lattice piece I noticed the negative looked like a pigs head as well so I incorporated into the card; so it looks like a large pig head behind the pig image.  I thought the laughter saying from the set Word Play was perfect to use with this.  So I hope you got a little chuckle out of this slightly strange card!!  Happy Stamping!!

Delightful Kettle!

 One of my favorite sets is Morning Cup even though I do not drink coffee .... but I have a lot of friends who do.  For this card I used the kettle and the color combo Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette!  Other that it just a couple bunch, embossing folders and some accessories!  Happy Stamping!!

Happy Father's Day!!

Here is a card I made for a swap a couple months back. I used the set Best Dad Ever and colored the ties different colors by using my markers. I then stamped the sentiment to overlay the ties. I ran the river rock piece through my big shot with the houndstooth folder. I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day and Happy Stamping!!

Stampin' Addicts' New Catalog Blog Hop - Blast Off

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts' New Catalog Blog Hop!! If you are following the hop in order you came from Adriana's site Escape2stamp site where she made some super cute projects from the stamp Two By Two.

I love just about everything in this catalog and I had a hard time deciding what set I was going to use for the hop.  I finally decided on set Blast Off, I've been waiting for a space set forever and I was sooo excited to see this one!  I'll be using this set often, especially in some of my scrapbooking projects!

 For this duo I went with that cute little Alien as my focal image.  The card uses Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi while the Candy Wrapper uses Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. Both are simple and fun projects that can be used for small children or tweens!!

 The color combo for this next duo is Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler ... they work perfectly together!!  On this set I used some of the new Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon as well as the new Outer Space Wheel.

The next stop on the hop is Sara's site Lily's Ink Pad where she if featuring the set Bug Me!!  You are going to love her projects!!  Happy Stamping!!
