My version

So this is my version of a beautiful card and I saw posted the other day that uses new items from the occasions many catalogs. They use the springtime vintage designer series paper and the vintage flower adornment and the thanks for caring stamp set. The original card can be found here.


I didn’t want to make it exactly the same so I changed the paper from the DSP that I used. The colors that are used are rose red, Baja breeze, always artichoke and pear pizzazz. I also used a glimmer Brad to attach my lace ribbon to the tag. I was able to incorporate my always artichoke seam binding ribbon along with my lace and pear pizzazz ribbons. I added a vanilla Rosette to the tag as well. I use the textured impressions embossing folder frame tulips.

I hope you all like this card as much as I do.



Owl Wedding

I saw this card on a blog and had to try it.  It is so cute.  I would not have thoughy of the details she put into it.  Hope you like it. 

I used my owl punch and bird punch to make this as well as my Teeny Tiny wishes set for the greeting.

Congratulations Card

This is a card I made for my work partner.  She is going to a wedding on the 31st of December.  The dresses for the girls are apparently red so I thought a little touch of red would be nice on the card.  Hope you like it  Linda.I am still sad as the brown truck is now 4 day late in delivering my order.  So still no playing with my new products.  Waa!

I used my elegant lines embossing folder on this card and my work play stamp set.  Red is of course cherry cobbler  for cardstock and seam binding ribbon.  I printed out the names on my computer to personalized the card.

Sponged Laughter

Yesterdays challenge on SCS was to use sponging on a card.  Here is a card I have been wanting to make for a while, mostly because I have not used this posy stamp yet.  I stamped it twice and embossed it, cut and layered it. 

Today it was all about baja breeze.  Hope you like it.

Copic Challenge 40

Wow, two posts in one day.  I am behind.  Here is the card I made for the Copic Creation challenge “Light Source”.  My light source is supposed to be from the top.  I tried the white gel pen accents this time too.  Not sure if i love it or not.  Practice, practice, practice.

I used Bo Bunny paper “Sophia” for the background paper and a great sticker from an accessory pack I got a while ago,  probably a year or so.  Hope you like it.

Here is an up close look at my coloring:

I think I am going to ask Suzanne at Scrap Bitz what I could do differently.  Any suggestions are welcome.

Scrapbook on Canvas class

I’ve been delinquent again.  Sorry.  Lots of snow days from school here, some without snow and now one with snow.

Saturday I held a class to make a scrapbook canvas.  I have 5 ladies here to do the class and we had a  blast.  They each chose their own papers they wanted to start with, all from Stampin UP.  3 blues and 2 black and vanilla.   It is so interesting how one idea turns into 5 very different and interesting beautiful works of art. 

These are the canvases as they were finished except for one I did not get a pictures of.  I will have to have Susan send me a copy or bring it next class so I can take a picture.  I have to admit as always I am learning when it comes to taking pictures but this gives a pretty good idea how they turned out.

This is Annie’s:

 This is Margaret’s:

 And last but not least this is Kathy’s:

I am most impressed with them all.  It was great fun and I look forward to having the girls back next month for another card class.

Claire at the Beach

I came across these great pictures of my little girl Claire at the beach in Port Canaveral in Florida.  She was almost 2.  Look at her expressions here. I found when looking through pictures she did make some pretty amusing faces when she was that size. 

I used the summer splendor paper on the MDS for the background along with the satin ribbon and some clouds from the sunny days kit.  I am really happy with how this turned out, simple but cute.

This program is just too much fun.
