Another Whiff of Joy

Hello all, I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! Here I have another entry into the Whiff of Joy guest Designer call. This one, Like the last one is called "Willow with lantern" I think she is absolutley gorgeous and really enjoy coloring her in. I once again used my watercolor pencils with my blender pen. I have yet to purchase any Copics, which I will be doing in the near future. So, go on over to Paper Craft Planet and check things out, On top of the Guest designer call, there are so many great ideas and some really creative and friendly people over there.

Whiff Of Joy guest designer call

Good evening all! Tonight I have been working on a project that I entered into a Guest designer call for Whiff of Joy. There is a sketch to follow and you have to use at least one WOJ stamp/image in the sketch. You too can enter to be a guest designer for Whiff of Joy. All you have to do is go on over to Paper Craft Planet and submit your creation as well. All of the info is there so go on over and check it out. If you have never used any of the WOJ stamps you have to try them out. They have some adorable images. The detail in these stamps is awesome! So do you think I have a chance? On this sketch, I used the image Willow with lantern and for the sentiment, I used Circle of friendship from Stampin Up! I colored Willow in with my watercolor pencils and used stickles on the holly berries and also on the lantern for the light(yellow stickles) The designer paper is from S.E.I. and is called "Glitzmas" also used was basic black(Stampin Up!) and a textured white (unknown)card sto…

I would like to use them in more creative ways, but this is all I could come up with. So, with that being said, I used a rub on sentiment from Stampin Up!

Let me know what you think and I promise to work on my photo taking skills, How embarrassing. Well hopefully I will have more to post tonight! Hugs!

Leahs monthly challenge #2


Wow! What fun this challenge was. Leah'sbirthday is this month and she got the inspiration from this really cool lookin cake! Check it out, I just love it! Well The colors that we had to work with were Rose Red,Regal Rose, Close to cocoa,Pretty in Pink and Vanilla. So this is what I came up with. You cant see the sentiment too well but it says "she with the most purses wins!" I used the purse stamp from Stamping Bella and everything else is stampin Up! Although I did use liquid pearls from Ranger Ind. and added some of the chunky glitter from Stampin Up!I also outlined the scallops with Close to cocoa. Isnt this just adorable? Come back often this week since I have the whole week off for Thanksgiving break so I will have lots to share!

Beates WSC #67

Hello all, Well I have been making my Christmas cards like crazy and having so much fun doing it! This is one that I made for BeatesWSC #67. It is also the first Holiday card that I have made using Stamping Bella. My Bellas have been getting so neglected. Poor things.
This Bella is Wreathabella and I colored her in with my watercolor pencils. for the rim of the hat and the boots and laces, I used this fab glitter from Martha Stewart. Don't ya just love Martha? Anyways, The glitter I used comes in a pack of 3 with the glitter glue. It's called "Arctic Glitter" so cool! The glitter I used on the wreath is in the glitter stack from SU! called Enchanted. I think it has been retired. The card stock I used is all Stampin Up! Real Red, Glorious Green,Close to cocoa and for the card base(you cannot see) I used Pretty in pink. I used the red pin and green deco paper for a Christmas stack that I got last year(I cannot remember the name) Finally for the greeting, it is a stam…

Beates WSC # 67

I have only made 13 cards so far and I have a variety, 3 of this, 4 of that and so on. I will probably have 50 completed by Dec. 1st. I like to have them mailed out in the first week of December. Well, I just wanted to share what I have done so far and will have more to share during the week, I am on Thanksgiving break all next week so I have lotsa time to create! Hugs!

Brandons birthday!

Okay, Here is Brandon with his card. He loved it! Made me feel so good, Even though when I was making it he kept coming in the room and I had to constantly cover it up. When he did open it he was like, ah ha, Thats what you were working on. Cant get anything by him. Except for one of the birthday presents I got him, Came in the mail the other day, and When the mailman got here, Brandon had to sign for it and he carried it to me and said, okay mom, more ebay? then he went on his way. I got that one by him. Oh, the gift that he signed for was an autographed numbered baker board(skateboard) Whoever Baker is, Brandon loved it!
For his birthday dinner we went to Claim Jumper, if anyone has one near them, You know how big the portions are, Check out my burger, That is seriously a huge burger, ok, dont mind the open mouth, I think I took 2 bites and I was full, It was my lunch and dinner the next day. It was so yummy though!

Happy 13th. Brandon

Hello, Just a quick one tonight. I have been working on this card for Brandon's 13th. Birthday(Nov. 13th.) for hours and I totally love how it came out. This set is so cool! It is called "Skater Dudes" from "I Brake for Stamps" This is a 19 piece stamp set and perfect for those teenagers who love to Skate! I stamped the background with some of the words that come with the set like, Ollie,Grind,Air,180, etc. I dont even know what half of them are(LOL) I then heat embossed the dudes with black craft ink and clear embossing powder. Then cut them out and arranged them just so on the white cardstock on top of the sayings. I raised 2 of the images(as you can see in the side view) and voila, a teenagers Birthday card! Let me know what you think! Well Brandon is in bed asleep and I have to decorate his bedroom door so he wakes up to a Happy Birthday since I will already have left for work when he gets up. Have a great night all and I'll be back soon! Hugs!

Wow! I have a Teenager!

Birthday Box in a Bag

Here is a "Box In A Bag" That I made for my boss who's birthday is on Wed. Nov. 12th. I found the tutorial on Splitcoast presented by Diana Gibbs. I used some paper that I just purchased today at my local scrapbook store "Remember When" They are having a huge sale and everything in the store was 30% off, Needless to say, I am such the Paper hoarder I bought tons of designer papers, anyways, It is called"A family affair" by Momenta, I used Buckaroo Blue cardstock by Stampin Up! for the bottom and for the scalloped square and used "So many scallops" Happy Birthday for the sentiment. I added some faux stitching on the blue to add a little pop and I think it turned out pretty good. Now to figure out what to put in it for her. Yikes, I was having so much fun making the Box in a bag that I didnt think of what to put into it. Well with the 4 day weekend, I'll think of something, I hope! Well of to do some more creatin, enjoying my Sat. night in…

Ginas Stamp Camp

Well we made 3 projects tonight at Gina's stamp camp. I just love going to her camps. They are so inspireing! This first one is a packing tape glitter card. So easy and so darn cute. You punch your square in the card and then cut packing tape a little bit bigger than the square hole and attach the tape to the inside of the card with the sticky side out, Then you sprinkle your dazzleing diamonds over the sticky window. Then stamp your image and attach it to the inside of the card at the window facing out and voila, Glitzy glitter window!
Here you have a little goodie pouch. Inside are some pepermint patties in a little baggie. Cute little gift for co-workers. And this final project is a little snowman that you can add to a gift bag or even a card. We used the Stampin Up! Top Note Bigz Die for the face and for the hat. Is that adorable or what? I think I have to order that Die to add to my collection, so many possibilities! We also made a 4th. project but I left it at Ginas(sigh!) It…

A Frame and a challange!

Hello all my cyber friends. Well it’s Saturday night and what a great day today was. I had a vary productive day. It has been raining pretty much all day today so what a perfect day to get some things done. I cleaned out the fridge,cleaned up my side of the craft room(my boyfriend has a train layout on the other half of the room) Organized scraps,went to our neighbors house and played Liars dice, Brandon even came and played. I had so much fun. It's not too often that I get to hang out with with my almost teenage son(13 on the 13th.) So I was lovein it.

Then about 11:00 when we came home, I headed straight to the craft room. I have 2 things to share with you all tonight, The first is a wood picture frame that has taken me forever to complete but I think I like how it turned out. I painted the outside edge of the frame with brown acrylic paint and the inside edge was painted with pink acrylic paint. I then covered the frame with {note}worthy Audrey polka dot stripe paper from Makin…
