I used my new Stamp Set Let It Snow by Impression Obsession. I got it fairly late, so I didn't have much time to play with it this year. I thought this one stamp out of the set was perfect for a card to my hubby. lol. That so would be us!

Paper: Baja breeze, Snowflake PP by?, Choc. Chip and WW
Ink: Baja breeze, choc chip
Extras: MS glue pad, irid ice ep, snowflake punches, blender pens, shimmerz, white perfect puff, ribbon, Snowflake brad, SU marker, Cuttlebug dots folder on big snowflake
It's snowing like crazy here. Definitely not the norm for us to get this much and these cold temps for this long.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

My girlfriend Suzi gave me CTMH holiday paper package with part of my xmas gift this past weekend. I had bought the elves set from her friends party and she brought it down with her. Not traditional Elf colours, but I wanted to use the CTMH paper for the card and I've got to match everything of course!
I used this weeks SC over at SCS for the layout. My girls kept bugging me with wanting to do their own crafts, so I kept it simple. I'm not really liking it, but I'll send it to Suzi anyways. lol.

I have just gotten the MS glitter package and thought I'd try those. It turned out to be really easy to use 3 different colours. I love the look of the multi colours that was on stampnextra's tree and might have to do that tree for my next card.

I wanted another quick and simple Christmas card and this is what came together. I'm such a lucky girl.. well I guess I'm no longer a girl, but lady just sounds to old and mature. :o) Anyways, my Mom bought me MS's 18 pack of different coloured glitter. Yippee! So, this is using the turquoise glitter on the tree and word Sparkle. I used the sakura glue pen for the glitter to adhere to.
No kids both nights this weekend, so I best get my butt into the dungeon and get creating. I want to be able to have cards made to give to my Mom to give out.

Oh, more blah blaha... I had challenged myself NOT to use bling on this card. Hard to do, but I didn't add any stickles, gem brads, iridiscent ice etc... Once I put the 3 coloured scalloped nestie circles together, I thought of making it into a ornament. I just bought a cuttlebug folder/ dye cut that had a little ornament top piece to it. Perfect fit to give it that look!

I cased a card from xeyedlyza on scs. I just loved her card and asked her what company CTMH was and she messaged me that is was Close To My Heart. Now, I have this set myself!!! My great friend Mel bought me for my Birthday! How lucky am I!
I used the cc#176 and added choc. chip. I aquapainted the flowers with sky reinker and also coloured in part of the vase with the blue. I did the bg on the vanilla in different shades of the choc chip and sky and then coloured in some of the dark choc chip ones in the river rock. Added a ribbon to the vase, stuck on the flowers with dimensionals and that is that!

I need a stamp that says "Seize the Ice Cream Cone" lately. I just love having them on hot days. Not good for the waistline though!
I had such a hard time with this card. I really wanted to destress in my dungeon, but the creativity was stagnant. I finally gave up after coming back to it during commercial breaks of The Deadliest Catch. Those men are crazy!
Last week's sketch challenge on scs was this layout. I can't seem to get away from these colours. Maybe, the new in colours will pull me away for awhile. We'll have to see how they look in real life.
Recipe: Too simple to really list. Hero Arts cupcake stamps, cuttlebug bday embossing folder, some SU ribbons, linen BG stamp, couple brown brads, blender pens to colour in cupcake and nesties. I could use a moist chocolate cupcake right now. I'm insomnicating and having monthly cravings. GGGrrrrr.... and of course tomorrow will be the day the girls are up the earliest of the week. It goes without saying, I swear!
I hope you all are tucked snugly in bed, dreaming of your next card. :o)

Thanks for stopping by! What is your favourite flavour for a popsicle? I love root beer, lime or grape.
Wednesday, July 2, 2008
I made my own bg with 3 of the stamps from this Hero Arts Cupcake stamp set. How cool is that! The pp is Karen Foster Birthday Celebration. I keep using the same colours, so I picked paper that had colour and it was fun matching the colours in the pp to S.U. Added some microbeads to the top of the cupcake with a cherry on top. Both images were stamped with blk craft ink and clear embossed. The ribbon was bought stamped with Happy Birthday on it. I also added a couple of my new brads. Pulled out the S.U. markers for the cupcake colouring.

I've had fun using pp for inspiration the last couple days. For some reason, I'm in the mood to make xmas cards... weird or what?! Can't ever be too early to start making 60 cards now can we?!
I want more patterned paper. I'll have to maybe hit the LSS for some new beautiful Basic Greys. I can justify it with it being my Bday in a month right? I'll use that excuse to order Nesties too and to order cuttlebug folders and and and. A girls got to do what a girls got to do to keep her happy. If Mama ain't happy.. no one is happy! So true! ;o)
Have yourself a great weekend. I think we're taking the girls to Kung FU Panda if it isn't nice out tomorrow.

My husband came home at lunch time with this beautiful bouquet and the homemade ice cream cone craft that he and our girls did together last night. Brad did a great job on the cone and the girls did a great job on the ice cream with sprinkles and chocolate they told me. I think Brad could do some good in the craft room. Wow! We were suppose to go out for ice cream 10 yrs ago and ended up doing something else instead. wink wink. So, it's been an ever running joke about me wanting my ice cream cone. He filled it with printouts of different ice cream places for me to pick from. We are going to the Marble Slab Creamery tonight. Yum! Oink! The picture doesn't do the flowers one bit of good. They are gorgeous in real life.
I hope you all are having as good of a day as I am. He will get his present later tonight, but I won't be posting a picture of me in it. haha.
