I fell in love...

I fell in love with this paper the minute I saw it.  The color are so pretty and it just made my happy. 

The stamp is form Stampin' Up and I had to add some white polka dots to the girls dress so it matched the paper. 

I will be taking a week or two off from blogging... my husband is coming home tomorrow on leave and I haven't seen him for 8-1/2 months.  I am SO excited.  For those of you that don't know, he is serving in the US Coast Guard and is stationed in Kodiak, Alaska.

I'm off to play with the new toy FedEx delivered today... a Tim Holtz Vagabond.  It's my Christmas gift from my hubby.  He is a keeper!

Way out of my comfort zone...

I love Asian themed cards... my friend Pat (waving at Pat!) makes the most beautiful Asian cards so I thought I would go outside of my comfort zone and use a stamp I have had for a long time... Hero Arts' Haiku Bunny. 

It was pretty simple to make... and I did very little coloring on the image because the paper is so bold I wanted to keep the image simple.  I will be trying more Asian cards when I have time... using Pat as my inspiration... Love ya Pat!

Distress Inks... a quick post!

My favorite inks are Ranger's Distressed Ink.  They are so versatile.  I used blues and purples for this card, blending the two colors together over an embossed stamped image.  I also added some white dots with a white pen and some Hero Arts Pearls along with some white ribbon from my stash. 

It's late and I am off to sleep... my two dogs are on the bed waiting for me!

Hapy Monday!

Happy Monday Everyone!  I had the best dinner last night with my parents and son at Red Lobster... a late Birthday dinner compliments of my parents.  It was SO nice to get together and just relax with good food and good company. 

I saw this card somewhere on someones blog but I can't for the life of me remember where (if it is your card that I cased let me know and I will give you credit for this great design).  The original card was turned the other way but and was a little different but I wanted to try and duplicate the technique. 

This was my first attempt at a rolled flower and it took me several tries to get this one.  I watched (my stamping idol) Jennifer McGuire's tutorial and it was really helpful.  I am still not happy with it and will be practicing more in the future.   Jennifer's flower were also heat embossed but I left this one plain paper.  I sprayed the flower with too much Perfect Pearls but I kinda like the way is came out with the pearl spray pooling.  I guess the old saying "there are no mistakes in stamping... only embellishment opportunities" is right.  The link for Jennifer's tutorial is at the end of this post if anyone wants to try it.   She is an amazing stamper. 

I also tried Ranger's Distressed Embossing Ink... I think I actually like it much better than Versamark.  It is "stickier" and I think the embossing powder sticks better to it.

I'm on a roll...

Last night/this morning I was up until 3:30 AM stamping.  I started out slow and re-did the same dingdang card FIVE times but I am finally happy with it.  I will post it later this week.  I also made 4 other cards and will also post those after I get them photographed. Like I said... I am on a roll!

I made this card a few weeks ago and I wish the photo did it justice.  The colors are SO vivid and it was sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist so it really shimmers.  All of the stamps are Hero Arts and the inks are Ranger Distressed...two of my favorite products!

I am off to do some more stamping... I have lots of card ideas bouncing around in my head!

Well I am back and I was given an award...

I gave it to myself but I won't tell if you won't!  I am now the official recipient of the "Most Inconsistent Blogger Award".    I tell ya it was a lot of work to get this award... a case of Impetigo on my face, the return of C. Diff, helping my son move into a bigger apartment and hurting my back, and just plain not feeling too great.  I hope I can be more consistent in the future... I will try.  Thanks to all of you (okay... few of you) that have stuck with me and my sad little blog.

I do have a card for today.  I have been following Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking classes at the 2 Peas in a Bucket website.  I tried making a clear card and I think it turned out okay... the hardest part was creasing the acetate!  I definitely need to get some Hero Arts pre-folded acetate cards and soon!

I tried a new designer paper on this card... Kaisercraft.  I really like that it has punch out borders and tags with the pad.

Distressed Ink card...

I spend a lot of time playing with Rangers Distressed Inks.  I love how versatile they are and hte way they react with water.   I use them mrow than any other ink. 

This card was one of those cards that came from playing.  Both stamps are from Penny Black (another one of my faves) and I used a few different Distress Inks.  When I was done I misted with water and that caused the speckled texture.   Sorry but I can't remember which colors of ink I used. 

I think this card needs "something" but for the life of me I can't figure out what to add.  Think I will just hang onto it for a bit until I figure it out...

I lost a stamp making this card...

I made this card two weeks ago and lost the smaller flower stamp.  I have looked everywhere and still have not found it.  It looks like I am just going to have to break down and get another set.  I use this particular set quite a bit. I know it is going to turn up as soon as I buy a new one.    :P

I used Hero's "Dandelion Frame" and added the flowers and butterfly from the "Real Flowers" and "Watercolor Petals" clear sets.  I also did some distressing with Distressed Old Paper ink.  The sentiment is from the clear set "Just Find Me".   I love how Hero's chalk inks coordinate with their notecards... plus they are priced very reasonably and they are white on the insides so adding sentiments and signing them is easy.  They also have matching envelopes.   :)

A lesson learned...

I like how this card turned out with one exception-- you can see the adhesive on the self-adhesive pearls I used.  Ugh!  From now on I will be using Ranger's Enamel Accents.  I bought some a few weeks ago and you will be seeing them on my cards soon.  They come in a double pack in both black and white and they form a perfect little dot because they are self-leveling.

I am thinking about taking off the pearls and substitute the self-adhesive with Enamel Accents.   If it works I will post a picture.  I love trying out a new product and find out it is really great!

Pastel theme mouse...

I fell in love with this Basic Grey paper the minute I saw it so I had to make a card.  I really like how Basic Grey 6x6 pads have solid color papers to match the other paper in the pad.  It is an easy way to coordinate!

A rough week...

I'm sorry I have not had a chance to post this week... it's been a rough one.  On Monday I had to put my 13 year old Brittany, Ginger, to sleep.  It was heartbreaking but she was suffering and I could not continue to let her suffer.  I miss her so much. 

Also, my son Jeremy (21) is going to be moving back home in the next month or so.  He moved out on his own in February of this year but his employer has cut everyone's hours so much he can not really afford to live on his own and so he's back home.  It will be nice to have the company but we have both gotten used to living alone so it will be a bit of an adjustment at first. 

I will get some cards posted this weekend or early next week.  I broke down and bought a light tent on eBay.  I lost the one I had a few years ago when my neighbor was irresponsible with fireworks and caught my house on fire.  I am glad to have one again.   :)

I was looking at Jennifer McGuire's blog a while back (she is my stamping idol) and saw a technique where she used a white pen to add dots to her images.  It was beautiful so I had to try it and here is the result.  The image is from Hero Arts (of course... I love Hero!) and the papers are Basic Grey.  I have done this technique a few more times since this card and have improved a bit... the trick is you just need to be patient and take your time making all those dots!  I will post more cards using this technique soon.  :)

BTW, Jennifer recommended the BEST white pen ever... the Signo UM-153.  You can get them at Two Peas and eBay.  I loved these pens so much I bought a box of them on eBay!

I was into mice but now...

It's BUTTERFLIES!  I know, I know... I get on a kick and can't stop making cards with the same animals and insects.  Lately I've just really enjoyed butterflies.  This card was really easy to make... I layered the same stamp in different ink colors and then stamped the Hero Arts "Old Writing" on the top of them.  I stamped two of the butterflies from Hero's "Elegant Engravings" multiple times, cut them out, and layered them for a 3-D effect.  A few brown pearls and some brown ribbon and this is what I ended up with. I love the softness of pink and brown together!

Fun with my new punches...

I'm back!

I bought a few new EK Success punches a while back.  They are the "deep edger style" punches and I love playing with them!  This card came together while I was playing and I really like how it turned out.  Sorry for the poor picture quality but I can't seem to find my background I use for photos.

Pale Yellow and Black Color Scheme

I absolutely love this color scheme.  It is hard to tell in the photo but it is a pale yellowish-tan and black scheme.  Its from the DCVW La Creme Matstack.  There are so many beautiful coordinating papers in the stack!  I will definitely be using this paper again!

Fun little Birthday mouse...

Here I go with the mice again...and more Basic Grey papers!  I love this little Whippersnapper mouse.  I colored it, put it in my box of colored images, and then found the Basic Grey paper a few weeks later and knew it was perfect for the image.  I have been stamping quite a bit lately and I am going to try to get photos taken of the cards and get them posted in the next week or so.  I got a few new punches that I am dying to share with everyone!    :)

Great read...

Here is a photo of My Mother-in-Laws book, Chasing Lilacs, along with the synopsis from

Synopsis: It is the summer of 1958, and life in the small Texas community of Graham Camp should be simple and carefree. But not for twelve-year-old Sammie Tucker. Sammie has plenty of questions about her mother's "nerve" problems. About shock treatments. About whether her mother loves her.
When her mother commits suicide and a not-so-favorite aunt arrives, Sammie has to choose who to trust with her deepest fears: Her best friend who has an opinion about everything, the mysterious kid from California whose own troubles plague him, or her round-faced neighbor with gentle advice and strong shoulders to cry on. Then there's the elderly widower who seems nice but has his own dark past. Trusting is one thing, but accepting the truth may be the hardest thing Sammie has ever done.

Chasing Lilacs...

I made this card for my Mother-in-Law, Carla, for her birthday Her birthday was in April and I am just now getting it posted to my blog... I am such a procrastinator. I chose this particular stamp because she recently had her first book, Chasing Lilacs, released and it is fantastic (and available at Amazon and B&N). I made the background paper using white glossy cardstock and various alcohol inks and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder... I love the way it turned out!

This card is a very special one...

This is a very special card. I made it for my son, Jeremy, for his 21st birthday. Its hard to believe that the little 4 lb., 7 oz. baby I had is all grown up. He's a great kid and I am so proud of him! I chose this image because he is a guitarist in a band with some friends called "Fourth Day".

The main image is a technique called "shadow stamping". I used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous set to make the background. It's hard to tell on the photo that the Stazon Metallic ink I used is really shiny.

I love this mouse image from Whippersnapper Designs... they have the most adorable images! This was my first try and using rayon seam binding sprayed with water and crinkled as ribbon and I really like the look. I will be using this technique more and I'm going to try dying it with reinkers.

Today's post is gong to be quick because I am heading out to pick up my new glasses. I got this technique from the amazing blog of Jennifer McGuire. It's a reverse-image stamp embossed with white embossing powder on white cardstock. I then colored the open areas with Memento markers and gently wiped any ink from the embossing powder with a baby wipe.

Today's card is one I made last summer. My wonderful hubby is currently active-duty in the US Coast Guard and the cutter is was stationed on did a 6-month patrol to the Persian Gulf so a group of spouses made 12 cards each and they were sent to the crew to let them know we appreciate what they do. This is what I came up with.

Well I am back. I am going to try to make more regular posts since I am now all moved into my room. I made this card a while back and never got it up on my blog. The most difficult part of this card was cutting and embossing the frame with my Nestabilities dies and making sure it was centered. I used two small, very simple stamps to create the image... one is a grass stamp and the other is a flower! I fell in love with the colors of the designer paper and all the layers on this card and I am happy with the end result. Have a great Tuesday... don't forget LOST is on tonight!

My Remodeled Stamp Room!

*Click on photos to enlarge*

Well it is finally done an I am all moved in. My hubby did all of the work on this and I think he did an awesome job! The room used to be our third car garage that we had incorporated into the house after it caught on fire in July of 2008. Here is a shot from the hallway entrance. I got the inspiration for the island in the center of the room from the blog of the fabulously talented Cindy Lawrence.

Here is my desk on the West wall. All of my 8.5x11 cardstock is stored in the two filing cabinets under the desk.

My JetMax storage cubes and Best Organizers on the East Wall:

I love my Best Organizers... I keep all sorts of tools and suplies in them... and they hold A LOT!

I store my clear stamps in a Scrap Rack... it is so easy to flip through the pages to find what I am looking for...

My cutting table, ribbon, and Nestabilities:

I have my Nesties stored on chipboard rectangles I got at JoAnn with magnet sheets glued to them. I then put them in plastic cases I bought at Office Depot and hung them (sorted by shapes) on a drapery rod with curtain hooks...

On the other side of the room is my desk... my hubby calls it "Command Central". I have my iMac, a small tv to watch while I am on the computer, and a larger tv mounted on the wall above the desk to use at the island and stamping desk. He even put a mini fridge next to my desk! He's definitely a keeper!

The view back towards the door and the closet.

My rubber stamps are unmounted and put in CD and DVD cases. I originally used EZ Mount but am now in the process of gonig bare rubber and stamping with an acrylic block and Tack & Peel. Here is a close-up of the wire storage in the picture above.
