Xmas Purse and Card

I was feeling daring this evening while the husband is out playing hockey! My dearest damn talented friend Mel created this tote! How talented is she and is was the EASIEST one I've ever made. I usually get so frustrated and just don't make them. I thought I would make one to go with my xmas cards. Maybe, put a little little lip gloss in them or ??? I'm so happy I actually made something. I made a little flap piece for my purse (hope you don't mind Mel). I'm sure it could be better. I'll have to work on it!


Stamps - Snowburst, So Many Scallops
Inks - Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou, Vintage Violet
Papers - Baja, Bayou and Violet
Accessories - Punches, sticker gem, white gel pen, SU Baja ribbon for handle with Violet paper behind it.

Check out Mels blog for the tutorial and template for this cute little purse! What do you think?
I better get going. Off to The Keg with the hubby for appy's. No kiddies tonight! Woot Woot!

WSC 58 - Halloween Card

I wanted to make a Halloween card, but I really don't have a great Halloween set. I'm not overly happy with this card. If you want to see fantastic unreal Halloween creations visit Mels blog. What talent! I bought the patterned paper at a Scrapbook store for I think 25 cents a sheet. I used the new tangerine orange from SU. I used the cuttlebug circle folder on the small black strip to kind of go with the circles on the pp. I sponged blk, orange and green galore over the white area around the cat. It seemed to bright being all white. Added a black gem. I did faux stitching between the two different pp's. Inside says: a haunting halloween.

Sc194 Baja Grey Bella

I got this gal in a Bella swap I did awhile back! What a great way to get a variety of Bella's without having to buy them all! I love this new SU baja breeze blue. It's fab! I saw a card on scs that a lady made using it and grey. I've added a link to her card below as it wouldn't fit up here! You've got to check it out! It's ultra fab! I need colouring lessons! I am envious of people's abilities I see on scs.

Inks - Baja, Going Grey, Blk
Accessories - Aquapainter, blender pen, SU ribbon, blk gems, shimmer pen on shoes and other little places, glaze pen on balloons to make them shine, pencil crayons, SU marker, cuttlebug Bday and weathered folders.

Kels Baby Girl Card

My best friend since grade 6.. over 20 yrs is expecting a baby girl in Oct. I went the lazy way and used a sticker of a pram stroller I've had for years. I used the new S.U. pink (can't remember the last part of the name). added some barely banana and some baby coloured pp that I've had for years and years. I stamped It's a Girl all over the pink cardstock, scallop punched the edge and added some white gel pen dots to the scallops and some faux stitches.

I've just designed her Baby shower card too! It's really simple as I need to make 13 of them fairly quickly!

I also had a blue pram that I made into a baby boy card for my girlfriend who just had a baby boy yesterday1

My Christmas Cards

Okay, I think I've got my 2 xmas cards decided. For the most part, I'm going to make the snowmen one as it's really quick and with having to make over 40... I need quick. I just lvoe the Vintage Violet with the Baja Breeze. I wish they'd bring popular in colours from the past back! Smart on S.U's part I say!


Stamps - Season of Joy, So Many Scallops, Tags for All, Snowburst Snowflakes
Paper - Baja, Vintage Violet, WW
Ink - Baja, VV
Accessories - Glimmer and glaze pens, snowflake cuttlebug folder, nesties, punches, silver brads, gem sticker, blender pen, Lily White Flock, Icicle Stickles, Orange pencil crayon

I'm sure I'll end up making others too for really close friends and family as I always seem to.

Happy Cardmaking!

Simple Christmas Card

I wanted to keep my xmas cards simple this year, but is this too simple? I love the new Baja and thought the Snowburst set borrowed from my so damn talented friend Mel would go perfect with it. I also then remembered I had bought the Snowflake cuttlebug folder long ago and thought it would work well with the Baja Breeze.
I used a blender pen to colour in the snowmen's hats, scarves and added a bit to their bodies. I put icicle stickles then lily white flock ontop to make it look like snow beneath the snowmen. Sponged in a little baja over the whole image and coloured in the frame too. I put glaze pen over the hats and scarves to give them some dimension and then a little shimmer pen for some sparkle.
The other xmas card I made first last night that I felt had so much potential did not turn out how I would hope. I need to tweak it to make it work!
I actually got 3 cards made last night. I haven't been in the dungeon for a long time. I've got another baby card to get done too this week. I'm cheating with using big carriage stickers on them.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have found some time to get into your stamp room and unwind!
