Merry Christmas!

Hello Stampers and Fellow Crafters!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.  It's been quite a while since I last posted, been super busy with my Craft Fair and my Holiday Baking.  Today I wanted to my all the projects, they were so much fun to make!

 First my Doggie Treats, I made them for Large, Medium and Small dogs.

 Couldn't forget the Kitty's! 

I sold all but a few of my Pet Treats and had to make a couple more for my Sister's dogs and cats.  All I had were the medium dog biscuits left so I just made up these cute little guys, different punch art but just as adorable.  I may even use this pattern for next year! 
 Use the same punch art as for the doggie treats but made tags for kitty's!

Before I go, I also wanted to also share the apron I made for my Mother-In-Laws walker.  She said she would like to have something Breast Cancer related so I hooked her up, lol!  I mainly used my Cricut and my Wall Decor and More cartridge and a craft apron purchased at Hobby Lobby for this project, which made it super easy! For a better look click on the pic to see a closer view of the beautiful hot pink Glitter Paper I used, it's gorgeous!

Ok, folks until next time...which will probably be in 2014 so better say "Happy New Year" and  Happy Stampin!

Cards for Yvonne

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

On my last post (about 6 minutes ago!) I should have added the cards I made for my Sister's Mother In Law last week.  Once or twice a year she orders greeting cards from me and I found them on my camera and realized I didn't share, so here they are:  Just a note...a couple of the cards I cased exactly from the talented Ladies from the SU club I attend time to time.  Sorry, no time for breakdown on supplies used but email me if you're interested and I'll give you the information!

Until next time Folks, Happy Stampin!

Halloween and Birthday Cards

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

I've been busy, busy for the past couple of months not only making all my Craft Fair Goodies (I will be sharing real soon I promise!) but also helping out a friend who just moved her little bakery to our area's largest shopping community! I love baking and candy making so this is right up my alley and I am enjoying it so much! With that said, I have had little time to post to my blog but believe me "you've" been on my mind.  :O)

For right now though I wanted to share the Halloween Favor Bags I gave out to my Nephews and the Neighborhood children this year and a few cards I made lately for Birthday's. First up is the Birthday cards I made for my Hubby and my Step Daughter Jennifer.  Both are using punch art Hippo's I made using the SU Owl Builder Punch...they're so cute!

Next I wanted to share my Grandson Peyton's card.  He is growing up so fast and turns 13 this year, I can't believe it!  Since he plays Football and is going to the 2013 Gatlinburg Thanksgiving Bowl in TN at the end of this month (so excited for him and his team!), I thought I would make a card using the colors of his uniform for the Bowl and throw in a little of the color from his regular uniforms and here's what I came up with:

Sweet!!! (Just like Peyton) The colors for the tournament are green and white but I also threw in a couple of orange stars to represent his regular green and orange colors.  Punches used were Large Heart Punch, 1 3/8 Circle and xtra lg Oval.  The face stamp is from the Everyday Character Faces from Peachy Keen, I love the mean looking one for this player.  hehe

Next I'm going to share the Favor Bags, the first batch I made was very time consuming and after I made about 8 of them it hit me WHY am I putting all this time (which I really didn't have) into little favor bags that will end up on the floorboard of the cars within seconds of I rethought the bags and came up with the second version, still cute as a button but a lot simpler!  Sorry no time to list supplies used but email me and I'll share!

Ok, until next time folks, Happy Stampin!

I'm Baaaack!

Ok, Stampers and Fellow Crafters, let's try this again! If you're just tuning in, my last post would not let me continue down the page for some reason (I'm sure I'm somehow responsible but just couldn't figure it out!), so this page is a continuation...

Next card I wanted to share is a very simple card I made for my Hubby's Aunt Betty.  Simple but very sweet.  I love it.  I first made this for a beginner class I was offering at my local community college.


I used the Mixed bunch stamp in a variety of colors, love the way it turned out. 

Next card up is for my Brother In Law, Johnny.  For this card I used a retired stamp set "Party Hearty", very cute in primary colors.  You might also notice that I used versamark to give a watermark with a stamp from the Bring on the Cake stamp set.  My pics are kinda dark, and I apologize for that, I didn't take the time to go to my dining room for better lighting. 

Ok, folks, gotta run, until next time...Happy Stampin'!

Sympathy Card for Sharon

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

I've been busy, busy this past month making all my Craft Fair Goodies, I won't share just yet but soon I promise!

For right now though I wanted to share a few cards I made this month for a few Birthday's and unfortunately for a dear friend who lost a love one.

First up is the sympathy card I may for my friend Sharon who lost her Brother a couple weeks back. I used two stamps sets in basic black, Thoughts & Prayers (my go to sympathy stamp) and Papillion Potpourri.  I stamped the smallest butterflies on to Daffodil Delight cardstock, I thought it was quite lovely with the black and white.  Here I also used the new Honeycomb embossing folder and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch.  Very pleased on how this turned out, just wish it was for another occasion.  :O(

Now, I have two more cards to show you but for some reason this blog entry will not let me add anything below my Sympathy card, I am going to end this post and just start another.  Be right back...

Papillon Potpourri Birthday Card

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

Today I want to share a card I made for my dear friend Lisa for her Birthday.  I really enjoyed making this card so much, I think it's very Elegant (hence the Elegant Butterfly Punch used)!  Unfortunately I took this picture while in my craft room so it's a bit dark but if you click on the pic it should enlarge enough to get a good idea on how the colors I chose go so well together.  (see card recipe below for details)

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb cake
  • Stamp Sets: Papillion Potpourri, Bring On the Cake
  • Inks: Craft White, Cherry Cobbler
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Tulip Embossing Folder, Elegant & Bitty Butterfly Punches, XL Oval Punch
  • Embellishments: Half Back Pearls (I think 3mm)

Ok, thanks for stopping by, gotta run, until next time folks...Happy Stampin!

Babies, Babies Everywhere!

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper crafters!

This morning I would like to share with you some sweet baby cards I made for several of the baby showers I have been invited to this month!  I cased the idea from Pinterest and would love to give credit to the original designer but unfortunately no name was listed.  So here you go, my version of her work: 
I used Pretty in Pink CS and Baby Bundle stamp set (both of which are retired).  I used two different embossing folders on these cards the bib was made using the lattice folder and the onesie was made with the polka dot EF.  Too Cute!

Here's a close up of the Bib.  I stamped in E. Espresso on W White cs and used my blender pen with C Cake to add color. 

This cute little boys version is adorable.  I used retired Bashful Blue cs and Pear Pizzazz ink, so cute!    

Ok, folks until next time...Happy Stampin'!
