Share What You Love!

Good Morning! I have a busy, busy day today! I'm off to a imprints meeting this morning, it's a meeting that my up line puts on. It's a lot of fun we do make and takes, chat, have lots of laughs all while hanging out with the girls and learning something new. What more could I ask for! Then I'm off to a fellow demonstrators house to create with a group of my fellow demonstrators. So there will be lots of fun ahead of me today!

Which brings me to my post for the day. This was a gift that my cousin made me for my birthday using the MDS {my digital studio}, she is also a fellow demonstrator which makes it all the more fun for me. I was talking to hear about all the goodies I saw posted on blogs of convention and told her about a stamp that was only available at convention and that demo's were able to buy while there. So to my surprise when I opened my birthday present here was this fabulous frame and her version of that stamp in a 8x8 picture form for my stamp room. I was super excited about it, grinning from cheek to cheek like a little kid at Christmas. I think her version is cuter, heehee! Thanks so much Niki for my birthday present, I absolutely love it! Now I just need to find the right place to hang it. Doesn't being a SU! Demonstrator sound like lots of fun? Join my SU! team, guaranteed to have lots of laughs and build great friendships all while sharing what you love! Thanks for stopping by & Happy Saturday!

Happy Birthday, to me!

Happy Thursday! I wanted to post this earlier but I've been having trouble uploading pictures. This was a card that I received for my birthday last Friday from my cousin Niki, isn't super cute! I really love the stamp set! This picture doesn't do this card justice it is soooo much prettier in person. Niki water colored the treats making them look good enough to eat. Thank you Niki for my adorable card. Stop by Stampin with Niki for more details on this card. Stay tuned for more birthday treats that I received.
This is a Level 1 Hostess set that can be earned FREE with a qualifying workshop/party.

House of Haunts

As promised another Halloween card! This was a card that I made for our recent stamp camp meeting where we selected the cards/projects for camp, this card wasn't selected. It was really hard to select the few that we did, they were all so great not to mention that I get the pleasure of working with some really talented ladies.

Oh yeah, did I mention that I love our NEW spider web embossing folder. Yep you heard that or should I say you read that right. This is a sneak peek from our upcoming holiday mini catalog. I swear this photo does not do this embossing folder justice just wait till you get yours I promise you will love it. It just gives your card stock that little extra texture. OK, back to my card unfortunately this card did not photograph the best so it's a little hard to see but my moon is shimmering with a bit of shimmer paint. Thanks for stopping I have to run I have lots of projects ahead of me today house chores and hopefully a bit of stamping fun too! Supplies to follow!

Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizazz, Whisper White & Basic Black
Stamp Set: House of Haunts
Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron and Basic Gray
Accessories: Spider Web Embossing Folder { NEW holiday mini}, Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon, 1 1/4 Stripped Grosgrain Basic Black Ribbon
TIP: To create my evening moon I punched a 1 1/4" circle placed my template where I wanted and sponged So Saffron Ink until I acheieved my desired color and then sponged over again with Basic Gray to give a more eerie moon.

I absolutely love Halloween, do you? So needless to say when the catalog came out I checked out all the Halloween goodies and this one made it to the top of my list. I just loved those boots, the witches hat, ummm everything actually! This was a card that I made for a possible stamp camp project. My card wasn't chosen so now I'm able to share it with you! However, you wont want to miss out on stamp camp there will be lots of great cards some of which are Halloween.

I have this set in clear, which made it really easy to place the witches hat directly above her shoes. I was unsure of clear stamp sets when SU! came out with them at first but now I love them, I love that they allow you to add a few stamp images to a block allowing so many more possibilities and easier. Check back tomorrow for some more Halloween fun and a sneak peek from the upcoming New Holiday Mini. If you don't have a holidaymini email me at and I will be sure to mail you one ASAP! Thanks for stopping by!

Just a little notebook

Sorry for being MIA for the last several days life just got away from me. I've been pretty busy and then life decided to throw me a curve ball with a teething 2 year old with a pretty bad cold. So all he wants is to snuggle mommy so now I'm starting to feel under the weather, No fun! I have lots to post I just need to get them photographed.

Here was a door prize that I made for my Stampin' Up party yesterday. I think it turned out pretty cute. Jen W. was the winner of this little gift set and she was pretty excited about being the winner and ever more excited once I told here there was a magnet on the back side. This was a simple note pad, pen and clip that I dressed up.

This is the end result, I'm pretty happy with the way that it turned out. This size card is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 I just put it in a standard size translucent envelope that we sell. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another baby card tomorrow!

UnConvention Make & Take

This was a make and take that I made at UnConvention, I went to a couple of weekends ago. This card was designed by I believe Julie Ramos she is one of I guess you could say sisters in our group of SU! Demonstrators. I was pretty excited that she used this set, I had gotten mine in the mail a couple days prior and hadn't been able to use it yet. I love those cages and all the cute little birds that go with it. Thanks again Julie for putting together the UnConvention. If you would like to visit Julie's blog you can find her on my side bar.

For my MArVElo{uS} DAD!

Good Morning, I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. This card was made for my dad who recently had a birthday, I saw this truck and thought it would be perfect to make his birthday card with. He used to have one of these trucks when he was younger it to was green but a little bit of a darker shade. Anywho this card was a case from one of my stampin pals Ruby Johnson. You can visit her blog here and see her version of the card. Thanks Ruby! Scroll down for list of supplies.

Stamp Set: Countryside, In a Word {summer mini}
Paper: Black CS, Crumb Cake CS, White CS, Designer Series Paper Pack {level 1 Hostess}
Ink: Black Stazon Ink Pad, Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizazz, Always Artichoke and Basic Black Markers
Accessories: Large Oval Punch, Designer Label Punch, Modern Label Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Color Spritzer Tool
TIP: I inked my Square Lattice embossing folder on the raised side and then ran it through the big shot to give it that distressed background. This technique will dirty your folder but is fairly easy to clean off.
