3 Cheers for You!

Hi Stampers! I saw a version of this card done on Pintrest and knew I needed to re-create it myself. I love the colors and the festiveness of this. The ladies at my last card class also love it. It actually looks more difficult than it is.

I used my big shot and the labels collection framelits to make the focal point in whisper white and gumball green. I then stamped my image three times onto the whisper white alternating between gumball green and cherry cobbler. The final touch of the mistletoe was done using stampin' write markers.

Happy Stamping~

Masculine Sea Card

Hi Stampers!  If you are like me then you seem to have a hard time when it comes to making masculine cards for the special males in your life.I saw this card done when I was surfing other blogs and Pintrest, but I didn't bookmark it so I am not sure who to give proper credit to. If it is you- please let me know so I can!

This card uses the triple layer technique which has become so popular now. It is such a quick an easy technique that yields such gorgeous outcomes. It only requires a little embellishment before it looks like a completed card. I will definitely be using this technique more and more.

Happy Stamping~

Merry & Type

Hi Stampers! This is one of the cards we made in my recent card class this past week. This card uses the dryer sheet technique. I haven't used this technique, but thought it added the perfect amount of glitz and glamor to this card.

The image is from the Merry & Type stamp set on page 13 in the main catalog. I then used the Stampin' Up! markers to color the image in. It was put through my Xyron machine to add adhesive on the the front. A used dryer sheet was placed over the image and trimmed down. Then I rubbed dazzling diamonds over the top. The final effect is very glittery and makes it look like it is snowy. I love it!

Happy Stramping~

    Hello Kitty Birthday

    Hi Stampers! I know that it has been some time since I last posted, but I have not stopped stamping and creating. My life as a single mom has kept me busier than I ever imagined, but I still find time to create and stamp. I am still a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I still love what I do.

    The card I am showing today is a quick card I made for my cousin's daughter for her 2nd birthday. The theme of the birthday was Hello Kitty and I couldn not resist re-creating  one of the Hello Kitty cards I saw made on various blogs. I can not take credit for the idea behind this card. I saw it while browsing several other blogs. Unfortunatley I did not have it bookmarked so I can not give proper credit where it is due. If this is your original creation please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.

    Happy Stamping~
