Unique Christmas Colors

Sometimes isn't it fun to use colors just 'outside the box'? This card is made using some of the current Stampin' Up! 'In Colors'. Not your usual red and green for Christmas. I like it! See what you can do with putting a new slant on color!

Big Bold Birthday Card

This has been a busy weekend....but don't you just love the weekends? My favorite time of year is right now! I love the changing leaves, smell of fall in the air....spice in the air! Every year at this time I get inspired! Why don't you see what you can create today? My Mother always said....if you are feeling a little bit blue....be creative. You will feel much better. It is the truth!

Change Of Seasons


These are other cards on the schedule for my next Saturday workshop. We have such fun! Everyone each has their own style and it is great for me to see the inter-action between my creative guests. Even those who don't think they are creative....find out just how imaginative they can be!

Starting Fall/Holiday classes soon!


Sorry it has been a while since I have posted anything. I am getting geared up for Fall/Holiday classes and trying to think 'Winter'! We will be making these 'red and green' cards at the next workshop. I used these colors because I had a request to start Christmas cards...and also a request (from the same person) to make Birthday cards. So this is my way of doing both!

A 'Business' friend of mine asked me to design a card to give to a contractor that had worked for him. This is what I came up with. I hadn't had a challenge like this one before. It was fun and I was glad for the challenge!

Orange and Yellow To Cheer Up Your Day!



I love bright colors and was always afraid to use them Not anymore!

Sunset Sympathy Card


These cards were inspired by Patty Bennett. I love the sunset look. They are fun to make and pretty too. I punched out a circle and barely stuck it to the front of the card. Then I sponged white cardstock with yellow and progressed up the card getting darker as I went. The top is sponged with rust. So....barely banana, yoyo yellow, mostly mustard and rust. Next remove the circle and complete the assembly of the card. Try it. You will like it!

Greeting Card Purse


This little greeting card purse is a hit with my customers and friends! I love it too. So many possibilities. Little embellishments can make a big difference in how a project looks too. One piece of DSP makes two purses including most of the card fronts. I added some bling bling.....everyone has to use bling bling! The envelopes needed are 3 1/8" X 3 1/8".

Time gets away...


Before I know it another week or two has passed and it is hard to believe! A day wouldn't be right if I didn't craft a bit. This is a 'Thank You' card that I am going to share at a Demonstrator meeting tomorrow. We learn so much from each other.
We had a great meeting last night. I always enjoy the time with other demonstrators and we laugh and share ideas. It is not hard to leave the meeting feeling motivated. Thanks to all that participated and to June for sharing her very special 'pull-out' card.

Spring/Summer Cards

Don't you look forward to warmer weather after a long winter? These colors remind me of the spring-time. The trees are starting to turn green and the flowers are starting to bloom.

Maybe this will inspire you to craft this week-end!
I think the bees in the pink card are adorable. I love
the Stampin' Up stamp sets. This one is 'Just Buzzin' By'.

The green card is a combination of stamp sets. The star is set with 'Dazzling Diamonds' for 'sparkle'.

Thanks for stopping by....

Coasters!





This coaster is stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with Watercolor Crayons. The tiles I picked up at a hardware store. They are 4" X 4". This is a great gift or bazaar idea!

Queen For A Day!


This birthday card
is a favorite of mine.
The balloon has
a top coat that adds
dimension and creates
interest. And...who
doesn't like a
birthday??

March Inspirations






March is already here! I blinked and February had already ended it seems. The older I get the faster time goes too. It has been a while since I have posted.....so I will catch you up on things. I fell a few weeks ago and bruised my ribs so instead of using my vacation for spring cleaning and fun stuff.....I was down for the week. Oh well. I was able to watch the WOW Stampin' Up! DVD over and over again! What great ideas. If you have a chance.....please watch it. You will love it.
Since spring is around the corner I made a few cards to remind me of the freshness and whimsy that a card can convey. This little bear makes me smile every time.

Love to Stamp! Here are some new cards!






Every day that I am involved with the 'Stampin' Up! company inspires me beyond what I can even explain. I have the pleasure of having a great support group and all are willing to share their expertise. I want to inspire others as well!
These are a few of the cards I made and used recently either in a card swap or as a project at a workshop.....except for the pig. I just like it! It tickles me!

Hedgehog Valentine


I love this little critter! He comes from the SU set 'Hedgehog Happiness' with a few alterations here and there. I left off the 'Happy Birthday' and balloon. These were replaced with hearts.
