Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!

Hey Everyone I have this cute Christmas card to show you.  I just got these stamps and couldn't wait to use them. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I have to say...this took a lot of masking. It was hard but It was well worth it. I hope you like it!

I used Gerda Steiner Designs "Holiday Friends". ( I also used Magnolia stamps "Winter Fence and Winter Forest." ( )

The inks I used were StazOn "Opaque cotton white". Rangers Archivall Ink "Jet Black. and Tim Holtz Distressed Markers and Inks.

I used Simon Says Stamps "Falling Snow" stencil. I also used Lawn Fawns Lawn cuts, "Small stitched Rectangle Stackables.:

The DSP I used was from MME paper pad.. "Merry."

I can't wait to make more holliday cards. I love this time of the year. I however am healing from an allergic reaction and have not been able to make more cards. Once I am all better I see many more cards ahead. Smiles

"Meowy Christmas!"

Hey Everyone, I am so excited to share with you my two new cards I worked on. I just love these little kitty's! They are so adorable and I am really enjoying Gerda Steiner Design stamps! You will see more of her stamps coming up. I just got another set. Sooooo excited. I saw on Jennifer McGuire's Cards,  ( ) that sometimes she adds a little bit of sparkle paper. I really like the look of it and tried them on these two new cards. She is so right. It gives it that little sparkle that adds so much to the cards.


The First card, I used Gerda Steiner Designs "Deck the Halls" stamp set. ( ). I used the die cut "Merry Christmas" by Impression Obsession. ( ) The inks I used were Distressed Marker by Tim Holtz by Ranger. The paper I used Paper Accents "Glitz Silver/Platinum" and DCWV Holiday Collections "The winter Matstack 2009".

The Second card I used again Gerda Steiner Designs "Deck the Halls" ( ). I also used Lawn Fawn's "Toboggan Together". ( ) The inks I used were Distressed Inks and Markers by Tim Holt, Ranger. The paper I used Paper Accents "Glitz Silver/Platinum" and Authentique DSP Budndle collection "Cozy", Kraft colored card stock.

I hope you enjoy these two cards. I know we just finished Halloween and there is Thanksgiving before Christmas, but I thought I would get a jump start on my Holiday cards. Smiles

I wanted to share with you this Amazing card video by K Werner Design. I love everything about this card. The colors she used were amazing. My favorite holiday is Christmas! Enjoy! Check her out on You Tube as well as her blog (

Hip hip hooray... the holidays are here!

    Hello, everyone! The holidays have started. I am so excited! I have two cards for you from "Lawn Fawn". I just loves these cute stamps.

     I have been so busy with work but did have to get my some cards done. It's my outlet...apart from my family and friends, this makes me happy. Now who do I send these too? (smiles)

     The card on the left is from the stamp set "Booya" by" Lawn Fawn". Don't you just love the cute little spider hanging from the tree. (smiles) I also used the "grassy border" from "Lawn Fawn" as well.  The tree die is from "Impression Obsession." I love how I could make it an eerie looking tree or I could change it up and make it a fall festive tree if I want to. I masked out the moon by using a 1" circle punch and the blended the colors of the night sky with Tim Holtz "Distressed inks".  ( I am still learning that technique.) I also did this technique with the grass as well. I colored the cute little ghosts with "Copic Markers." I just love these marker. They are a little pricey but I have to say so worth it! Last but not least...I cute the card out using the "small stitched Rectangles" by "Lawn Fawn."

     The Second card, I also used the new Lawn Fawn "Toboggan Together" stamp set. I just love these little deers. To make the falling snow, I used "Simon Says Stamp, " Falling backgrounds." The inks I used were Memento Black, Memento Rhubarb Stalk, Tumbled glass by distressed inks and Staz-On Opaque. I colored the little deer with "Copic Markers".  The dies I used in this card, from "Lawn Fawn", were the "Mini Snowflakes", "Small stitched circle", "Forest Border", the "small stitched rectangles", and the "hillside borders. "To give this card a little pop, I used "Stickles, Xmas Red", by Ranger and added a little clear "Wink-of-Stella, " just to give it that touch of glittering snow.

I hope you liked my cards and would love to hear feed back from you. Just leave a comment below. Thank you all so much and Happy Crafting!

Yeah New Stamps!

Hello Everyone, Sorry it's been a while since I last posted...I have started a new job that is keeping me busy. It's fun and challenging at the same time. I wanted to share with you some new stamps I just got and I can;t wait to use them. I have lots of ideas and can't wait to get started. Here are some pic of my new stamps.

  So the stamps I got on the left are from Lawn Fawn. 1. Party Animal, 2 Booyah, Happy Harvest, 3. Holiday Party Animal, and 4. Thankful Mice.

The stamps on the right are from Gerda Steiner Designs. I am so excited to make cards with these cuties! 1. Happy Fall, 2. Deck The Halls, and 3. Peekin' Pumpkin Kitty.

The holiday are coming and it's better to get an earlier start than later start. I think I might be somewhat on the later start. But all is well... still trying to get settled in my new home and get everything in order. I am hoping that will happen very quickly. Look forward for some new creations with these cuties!

Here are a few video's I found really fun and gets me excited about creating! Enjoy and happy stamping!

Created three different cards with one stamp!


     Hello everyone, I have three cards for you using the same stamp. I just love this stamp by Magnolia "Sister and Brother". I have to say that, yes the title of this stamp is "Sister and Brother." I also used it as a couple stamp as well.

     In the first card on the left. I colored these cuties with copic markers. the clouds and the grass were also colored with copic. The tree die cute is from Memory Box , "Small Alder Tree." The die cute I used to frame the image is from Spell Binders "Labels Eight." I gave this card to my husband and he liked it.

     This middle card is again with Magnolia "Brother and Sister" stamp. This time I used Tim Holtz distressed inks. I loved how it turned out and I used it for the inside of the card.

     The third card, I used Tim Holtz distressed inks as well. I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels eight" die, The Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL722 Poly clear stamps. Christmas theme.  I also used Memento black ink as well as Recollections "Adhesive Faux Pearls.

     I started a new job this week and am in training, so I have not been able to post the cards I have made. I am hoping to set up a routine so that I will be able to most every two to three days. Thank you so much for checking me out and following me.

     Happy crafting my friends!

     Here are Three videos using the same stamp set by Lawn Fawn "Joy To The woods" Clear Stamps and Dies.

Adding Homemade flowers to your cards!

    Hello everyone, I wanted to show you some beginnings of cards I had made a while back. I thought they turned out amazing and really wanted to show you. At the time I was also learning how to make my own flowers. I still have yet to perfect this skill...but am still very interested in it.

     So let me tell you about these two beautiful little girls! The one on the left is by Elizabeth Bell! " Beary Big Hugs". Spellbinder dies," Classic Ovals (LG) "and "Floral Ovals." I used wax paper with the "Floral Ovals." I thought it would give it a different softer look. I colored her with Tim Holtz distressed markers. The flowers were made with...Cheery Lynn Designs " Miniature Rose" and EK Success "Retro Flower" (Med). I used Ranger "Glossy Accents" to glue the flowers together. I also used Stampendouse Frantage "Chunky White". For the little raised white dots around the little girls. Along with the frantage I used, Rangers "Liquid Pearls Dimensional Pearlescent paint, pink and blue.

     The second Picture with the little girl holding the balloon. I used Magnolia's, " Tilda with Balloon." Everything I used it just the same as the card on the left.

     Hope you enjoy the video's and the cards. Happy Card Making!!!
