Mom's card...

My Mom made this card for her brother and his wife. She loves the style of these sketchy images. Me too! Nice job Mom!

You Rock...

I used a few "Extreme Elements" for this card. The colors are Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay. Perfect for any young man or music buff.

40 kids???...


I will be attempting something new. Teaching 4 simple projects to children in an after school care program. Coming up with things that 40 girls and boys from 3 years to 6th grade could do was the challenging part for me. I decided to have them make Valentine themed projects. They will stamp and personalize a plain brown lunch bag to hold all their creations. Make a full size Valentine card and the 2 items shown above....a bookmark and a frig magnet. I've kept the tools simple...rubber stamps, white cardstock, red cardstock, red ink pad, a few punches and red ribbon.

#6 Scrapbook page...Not!

The final project in the kit was supposed to be a scrapbook page. Instead I made this card. I have more supplies left over to create more cards...but that will be another day ;)

#5 Textured CS notes and bag...



I love Textured CS! These 3x3 Love Notes are no exception. I had a difficult time photographing the bag of Love Notes....it's too shiny.

Love the clean, simple lines of this card..I think it's a 4x4 with a sweet matching envelope.

#3 from the kit


Card with coordinating envelope. I love the idea of stamping on the flap. Easy, peasy card!

#2 card from the kit...

This card and envelope were made from the same kit. 6 projects in all. I used the Stamp-a-majig to stamp the flowers to resemble a tree. There was also a button that was supposed to be adhered near the punched Bashful Blue flower, but I left that off.

Box of Tags...



I purchased a kit from Stampin' Up! It was for demonstrators that were unable to attend the Regional. I love these kits...everything was cut to measure! All I had to do was stamp and assemble. The first picture shows the completed project. The second one shows the opened box and contents...cute tags for gifts. I guess you could also use them on cards.

and 2 of these...

Just can't get enough of that Old Olive CS...The retired "merry" greeting is embossed using Versamark and Gold EP. It didn't photograph very well.Posted by Picasa

2 of these....

I completed (only) 4 Christmas cards this year. Two of this design, using Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry...don't they look beautiful together!
I have a stack of my " good intentions" that still need finishing touches added.

Frosty???


In an effort to make my Top Note Frosty look authentic...he really has a blank stare. Leaving the black CS eyes and mouth plain, left him looking sad. Back to the drawing board to see if I can add a little zip to his sad expression. The giant candy cane stick makes him really large, at least 12 inches tall.

Lovely with glitter...




I never grow tired of the trees from Lovely as a Tree set. This time I added glitter to each tree for a subtle, wintry look.
