Hello friend

When I saw Jennifer demo this set color layering deer by Hero Arts I just had to get it but was not looking for a Christmas stamp set, I knew I would probably never use it for Christmas but for every day cards. The background was done with wildflower background stamp by Rubbernecker with toffee crunch ink; used the corner rounder by EK Success; the grass was done with tree leaves stamp by Stampendous with bamboo leaves ink; the message is from friendship messages set by Simon Says Stamp; for the deer I used dessert sand, toffee crunch, rich cocoa & espresso truffle inks

Shoebox Tuesday

For today's shoebox project was a two for one project. Clean and simple cards for any occasion but one of them I made as mother's day as it's approaching.

The first card was using piecing technique. First I stamped the rose from rose wonder set by SU with tuxedo black ink then I cut my rose with the matching die set rose garden and piece together the rose and yes I was lazy and only did the rose as the pieces for the leaves were too little so I colored those with Spectrum Noir markers. The oval was left over still from this shoebox :0) I was thinking about what to do, when I saw the oval so why not used them since they were done and ready just needed a message that would fit there. For my layer, I wanted it to match the sponging on the oval so I sponged the edge of the card with shaded lilac and a perfect match. The message was stamped with tuxedo black and is by Stampendous

After I finished the card above I had the outline of the rose that was too pretty to throw away and of course everyone was going to have one so had to do something with it right? :0) so decided to make another quick card so grabbed the same ink pad shaded lilac sponged inside the petals and my base just as I did before so they would match and picked on of the messages from the set using the same ink and then, of course, needed a little more color so sponged some shabby shutters ink and violĂ  the other quick and simple card was done...ok maybe not so quick but simple :0)

Antique car

I was working on some male cards and I knew I was going to need cards for some of my groups for mingles (aka swaps) at the end I donated all but one because Send A Smile 4 Kids needed some cards for the teens so figure these were good for them

I stamped the cars which are from a set by Local King then I die cut my squares with stitched squares by The Stamps of Life then did my card base which was one of my new favorite fold but not so much as it's hard for the message :0) otherwise love it

With Sympathy

I had to make a sympathy card for my personal use, recently I was making some for my donation box but these were for me to use it's never easy to give these kind of cards but it's nice to give a little comfort to those that loss some one

This card uses a stamp by Dream A Little stamped with tuxedo black, the message is from the set rose wonder by SU also with tuxedo black, I used my Copic airbrush system, die cut my piece with a My Favorite Things stitched rectangle stax and the ribbon is by SU

Stampin' Up workshop

This morning I attended a workshop with two of the local SU demonstrators. We got to make 4 cards although I made 5 :0) all products are SU except for the Copic Markers I used

For the first card, we used seaside textured impressions embossing folder, layering circles framelits sponging the edges with dauber and calypso coral ink; umbrella weather framelits, hello you thinlits, endless birthday wishes stamp set with dapper denim ink and punched with duet banner and adding a little color with dauber and same dapper denim ink

For this second card, the die cuts were done for us all we had to do was stamped and put together but we used cool treats stamp set and matching framelits frozen treats, peekaboo peach ink and chocolate chip ink, ruched peekaboo peach ribbon

For these cards, I couldn't decide which card I liked best the pink or blue so made both :0) they both use same supplies just different colors. I didn't add a message which was our choice there were 3 different sets to add with Sahara sand ink and the pearls

 And last but not least, the card I colored with Copic Markers. Again we could choose different image if we wanted as the set Easter message has the cross and the lilies but I decided to go with the cross. I stamped it with tuxedo black since I was coloring with Copic Markers so did the message, the original message was done with gray for both, the background was also part of the set and I stamped off and then stamped with Bermuda bay and because I didn't like the flap not staying put I attached it but didn't think about it until after I finished the card otherwise I would have stamped some palms on the flap instead of on the back of the flap and since I don't have the set couldn't fix when I thought about it :0)

Spin around ball

After I made this card I decided to play with my new toys by My Favorite Things by making a spinner card using some of the same peel-off stickers I had ready for the other cards as I could use them as a ball in a pool. The happy birthday was stamped with faded jeans and is by Impress. The opening of my slider I did with SU's word window punch as my die was too long. Loved the spin discs

Shoebox Thursday

For today's shoebox project, it was pretty much for us to do whatever we wanted with the supplies given. Candee gave us emerald envy cardstock layer, peekaboo peach cardbase cardstock and die cut of a bee plus a piece of inside the lines DSP. She had colored a piece with 3 mediums...aqua painter and ink, Copic Markers and Cameleon Markers. She didn't have enough Copic Markers to color, I don't like the aqua painter and the Cameleon is too much work so I did most of my card at home with my Copic Markers :0) I added some yellow paper to the body of my bee and also some glitter paper to the wings and mounted it with foam. Because I did color the whole thing I didn't do much shading :0) I know laziness but I was happy with the card
