Where Did the Time Go???

Oh my, where did the time go?  Has it really been so terribly long since my last post???

Obviously, I took a break.  You can't imagine all that has transpired in the last five years.  Trust me, you don't want to know.

I'm not making cards at the moment.  I actually had so much "stuff" that it became tedious just to gather the materials I needed to make a card.

So, I sold all of my stuff.

Now I have acquired a small quantity of stamping supplies, so I may just post something soon.

Happy Fall!

Today I am sharing some cards made at camp. My upline, Susan Smith gets the creative credit for the cards. I've not had much time to create, perhaps later today...

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Welcome Christmas Into Your Heart

The Christmas Season has begun and I am going to be posting several Christmas cards from my card classes and camps. Susan Smith is my upline StampinUp demonstrator and gets the credit for this awesome card design. I love the music notes wheel, and the use of the ornament punch is great. Two different greens used here, Certainly Celery and Old Olive.
This cards really represents the spirit of the season, family, love, and being together.
I pray those things for you.

Isn't this card awesome? All StampinUp products were used in the creation of the card. The card base is Early Espresso as is the watermark background. The leaf images come from Stampin Up's Autumn Splendor stamp set and is stamped with Early Espresso and Versamark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used a brayer for the multi-colored decorative image portion of the card by using glossy white paper with Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and More Mustard. After braying the decorative background, I wiped off the image to ensure the leaves were clear and crisp. A corner round was used on the right side of all the layers. The stamped image was layered on Cherry Cobbler card stock, added a cute little brad the pop the image and adhere a small piece of the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon in the new Holiday Mini.

Just a little blurb about the Seam Binding Ribbon....if you are ribbon challenged like me, this ribbon was made for you!!! It is very light and flexible, easy to maneuver, tie, loop, etc. It comes in three colors, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, and Always Artichoke. It is currently available in the Holiday Mini which expires on January 2, 2011, get it while you can, it is the bomb!

Hope you enjoyed today's post! If you are interested in purchasing any of these products, please contact me as I am a NEW Stampin Up Demonstrator and would love to help you create this fabulous card!

Flower Pot Note card

This cute little flower pot comes from the ladies at Pair-A-Dox...thanks for sharing. I think it is adorable. Instructions and dimensions are included because this just had to be shared.

About the flowers....they were created using Spellbinders Shapeabilites Daisy Heads, just used the smallest flower. I love the detail "veins" in the flowers.

About the leaves....easy peasy and too cool. They are hand created, notice the veins and the alternate ripples? To make, just take a 2 X 11 piece of green cardstock and fold long long ways, crimp, cut out leaves, unfold. Awesome end result, minimal work.

About the paper....this is SU's retired Parisian Summer paper. If you have some, you are a head of the game, it is very hard to find. The solid cardstock is Stampin Up. I have found the SU TeaParty paper looks good with this card.

About the ribbon, brown and pink and coordinates perfectly with the paper, costs $3.99 a spool at Michaels.

You can click on the photo and save a copy to print/obtain the instructions.

Love is in the Air

I made this anniversary card for a friend to give to his wife for their first anniversary. I like the shimmer and softness of the card.

The CS is a gold and chocolate shimmery Bazzil paper. The bird image is from "Our Daily Bread" designs and is called "Sing Unto the Lord". The "Love You" image is from StampinUp. The DP is from last year and I don't recall the company name. Ribbon is a brown sheer ribbon from a local craft store, the brad is a beautiful pink and bronze butterfly.

The inside sentiment says "To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides". Not to mushy but very sweet.
