Here is my newest card : "Celebrate: Friends". I just finished it today after Kari M's open house! It is my entry for the cuurent Stampin' Royalty Challenge #81. Hope you all enjoy the card. I punch out a 2.5 inch circle of white card stock and vellum I used craft ink on the celebrate stamp and some heat and stick powder and then heat embossed using irridescent ice on the vellum. I used my 2 way glue to stick the vellum to the cardstock. I punched out little flowers with the Boho flowers punch and put some big sized pearls in the centre. I used an impressions folder to make the impressed background on white card stock and used a larger sized piece of white card stock in behind the impressed piece! Using my SU tearing ruler I ripped the edges and rubbed them with ink. I used a lighter brown ribbon and a thinner grosgain ribbon make the ribbon border and bow. I stamped a black butterfly from my "Nature Walk" set and rubbed the edges with ink and I stuck it onto a darker brown square I punch with my SU punch. I used the "friends" stamp from my "Just Believe" set and inked it onto a SU label cut from the SU label punch that was cut in half and edged in more ink.  Three little pearls in the top right completed my card. I just love it! Let's celebrate our friendships everyone! "Celebrate: Friends!"

Pics of "Thinking of You" card

Having Fun with Vellum!

Recently, I was thinking of sending some cards to a couple of my friends. I enjoy playing with vellum so I used the SU Nature Walk set to make a fun little note card! First, I stamped off the image of the eggs and the line "Thinking of You" onto the vellum then I used my SU 2 way glue stick to moisten the top of a white piece of cardstock. I fixed the vellum on top of the cardstock positioning the words and the images of the eggs where I wanted them to be. I, then took my cropadile and pressed a jumbo grommet on it with some chocolate chip ribbon and - voila! A cute little 5 min project that I had a lot of fun making!

Pics of Baby Card Trio!

Baby Card Trio!

My cousin Carmen is having her first baby and the baby is due on July 18 (tomorrow)! I am so excited!  I knew I wanted to start working on some baby cards so.....

When I was at Michael's Craft Store one day last week, I used a 50% off coupon to get this gorgeous Hampton Art stamp image of a carriage! I was so excited that when I got home I went straight to my desk mostly stocked with fabulous Stamping Up products and made this adorable card! I am calling this collection the Baby Card Trio!

I am thinking that I will give the blue card to my cousin as I know she is having a baby boy! A few other friends are expecting so I may have the opportunity to use the other cards. I will make some more blue and teal baby cards too just in case! Until I use them, I will keep them in my accordion file neatly organized by occasion and in little plastic sleeves to make sure the cards don't get dirty!

Welcome to the Card Party!

Hello All,

Welcome to the Card Party! It's taken me a while to set up this blog but it's finally here! Over the next little while, I will be adding more photos of my cards and more links to other blogs! I am really excited!

 First off, I want to post a card on my blog for the Stamping Royalty inspiration Challenge #80! The idea of even starting a blog occured to me when I was trying to use facebook to post cards to this blog and I was having such a difficult time doing that!!!! I was feeling very frustrated! Anyways, I hope this blogspot will make it easier for me to enter inspiration challenges, keep everyone updated on my cards, and give me an avenue to learn new stuff from all of you! Well, here goes, I am going to try to post my SR#80 submission! Hope it works!  **Fingers crossed**
