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!!

6x6 Page Protector

Here was another one of my projects for my secret sister I made using a 6x6 page protector. To make the flowers I cut out cardstock with the Blossom Party originals die, layered and crumpled them. I also added a few brads and buttons. You can find the tutorial on how to make the pouch here. Happy Stamping!!

Catching Up

I have a bunch of card to share that have been in my vault for the last few months. Mostly they were hidden away because I didn't want to give myself away to my secret sister. This is a card I made using the set You're My Type that was from the last mini catalog. I think the typewriter is perfect for masculine cards!! Happy Stamping!!

Little Friends

Here's a bright card I made for my secret sister last round ... I love razzleberry with daffodil!! I used the stamp set Little Friends,  I water colored the girls with my water color crayons and then added detail with the markers.  Several circle punches were used to get the different circles, window punch for the saying and the dotted scallop ribbon border punch was used on the yellow strip as well as the paper crimper.  The large decorated razzleberry scallop was made with the perfect pennant die.  Happy Stamping!!

Bowling Invite

The other day I mention that my little one had a Birthday and with Birthday's come party's so I had to make up a bunch of invitations.  He decided he wanted to have another bowling party so I had to bust out a long long since retired set to make his invites, a set called Have A Ball.  (Yes I keep each and every set I have ever gotten BUT I still use them!)  I kept them super simple since I made over 20 of them.  Happy Stamping!!
