Same Design….But Different!

Just a quick post to let you know that I didn’t forget what I promised last week.  Last week I shared a Valentine’s Card and I told you I would be back with another card using the same layout, but it would be different.....so here it is:   And just to refresh your memory....below is… Continue reading Same Design….But Different!

Pretty in Pink

It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around  and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery.  So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink

All the Glitters….

Christmas is over and it is almost January...just one more day and it will be time to say hello to winter.....unless you live on the east coast of Virginia.  We are having what I consider to be unusually warm weather for this time of year....the temperature has been alternating between the 50’s and the 60’s… Continue reading All the Glitters….

Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

I’ve had a lot of fun the past two weeks....I’ve been making cards like a crazy woman. Every time I get a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper, I just want to sit down and see how many combinations of stamps and paper I can come up with to make a different card.… Continue reading Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

Down Home Country Charm

When I first saw the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog I knew that I would be getting the stamp set that I used on this card.  I shared more about this card HERE.

Birds of a Feather Flock Together

I enjoyed playing with the Flying Home Stamp Set earlier this week and now I'm back again with more birds. The bird's nest with the Momma and her baby birds just seem to make the best note cards....instead of tweeting on a phone or other electronic devices, I think these birds make a cute way… Continue reading Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Lots of Leaves

Last week-end I spent a lot of time making cards using the Time for Tea Stamp Set. I’m a little bit of a neat freak when it comes to stamping....mainly because my desk is small and I don’t work well in a mess, so I’m always cleaning my stamps, putting things away right after I… Continue reading Lots of Leaves

It’s a Butterfly Kind of Day…..Again!

If you’ve been following me this week, you might have noticed that I am still stuck on making cards with butterflies....could be because I got just a tiny bit obsessed when I was cutting them out.....all the paper looked so pretty and every time I picked up another piece my brain was saying....oooohhh wonder what… Continue reading It’s a Butterfly Kind of Day…..Again!
