some new V-day cards!

Hello all, Well, once again, it has been a while since I have posted. I think I have lost my mojo. I sit here for hours and get nothing done. I have a crop to go to on Friday night and I am afraid that I will get nothing done. I so want to get somewhat caught up on my scrapbooking. I can look at magazines for hours and have all of these wonderful ideas but when you put the paper in front of me, I go blank. I will let you all know how I do on Friday night and what ever I put together I will post it on here. So, with that being said, Here are 2 more valentines day cards that I put together. Is this image adorable or what? The only problem is, I dont know what the name of it is. I just love it though! I am on a mission to make 30 Valentines cards to send out and right now I am at 15 or so. Half way there.
See the first card with the x's and O's? That punch is from Martha Stewart. Totally cool punch. The background paper is from a Stampin Up! 6X6 pad. The card on the right I used s…

Bella Challenge

Good evening all. Here is a a challenge that I completed for the Bella SCS Challenges.Click on the link and there you will find the Bella challenges. Soooo much fun! Color challenges, Sketch challenges, etc. The challenge was to use Ballet Blue,Brocade Blue and Lovely Lilac. I didn't think I would like just those colors together with no pinks or reds but I think it turned out really cute. I used Oh So Pretty Bella and colored her clothes in with my watercolor pencils and my gel metallic pen for the stool and around the mirror. I filled in the mirror with crystal effects and Dazzling diamonds glitter. I wanted to give it the mirror/glass effect. I also used my Embossing folder in D'vine Swirls on the lovely lilac and for the first time I used my Nestabilities in the scallop Rectangle. For other entries into the challenge you can go HERE! Happy Stampin!

I dont remember!

Well here is a card that I made for a sketch challenge and cannot remember where the sketch chal. is so, I thought I would post it anyways. I really like this card. I used some double sided paper that I bought just because I have a really bad paper addiction and thought that I might as well use it. It is from My minds eye and the colors are vary bright but really pretty. I used Daisybella from Stamping Bella, I received this image in a swap with another stamper. I colored the flower in with my Pentel Metallic Gel pen. Those gel pens write so smooth, I love em! Too bad I cant find them anywhere. I then pierced around he petals of the flower and down the stem. Isn't it adorable? I used a sentiment from Friendship Blooms from Stampin Up! Really fun card to make!

More Valentines!

Hello all, I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for the work week. I had to get a couple more Valentines in before the weekend was over and here they are! The one with the scallop circles I used my Nestabilities. I just bought these and they are the coolest! The colors I used were basic black, real red, and whisper white. You cant tell too much in the photo but I added some bling to the corners of the black card stock. The paper with the hearts on it I picked up at Michael's. On the next card, I used my Balloonabella from Stamping Bella. I paper pieced her dress and added crystal effects to the balloons and added glitter from MarthaStewart. I also added bling to the photo corners and topped it off with some Happy Valentines day ribbon by American crafts. These are 2 of many more that I will be making!Enjoy and everyone have a happy Monday!

Valentines card for my sweetie!

Finally, I am able to post. I have been trying all day and error, error, error. Ok, with that being said, Here is a card that I made for My awesome boyfriend Craig. I am so bad at giving him cards. I know, I make them for everyone else and he gets totally neglected. So, I have been keeping this one on the down low. You see, I share the craft room with him, He has half the room for his train layout and his antique cap gun collection and I have the other half for all of my goodies(and I get the closet too!) so it is really hard for me to make things for him since he is usually sitting right behind me so I was being sneaky and completed this for him. Whats really cool is he totally appreciates anything that I do make for him so that makes me feel good.
On this card I used a Penny Black image, I just love her girlie images. The heart that she is holding is from a package of bling that I bought at Michaels(Darcie). I colored her in with my watercolor pencils and used my blender pen. For her…

A Valentine for my sweety

Vday card for my man!

My Favorite Holiday!

Well as I have said before, Valentines Day is my most favorite Holiday! I start earlier on my V-day cards than I do on my Christmas cards. These are some that I made with total scraps. I printed on the velum and used brads to attach, some I think I used heart eyelets. They are pretty simple but I totally love em! Enjoy! More tomorrow! Hugs to you all!

Some ATC's

I am so sorry that the pictures are not totally clear, My camera is acting up.Hello everyone, Long time no see. I have been such a slacker lately. I don't do it intentionally, it just happens. I have been on winter break for 2 weeks and have actually been sitting at my desk at least 2 hours every night but have really made not one project. Yikes! Well, tonight I completed 3. I am in 2 different swaps for ATC's(artist trading cards) Those are my absolute favorite things to make. The first two ATC's is for one of my Yahoo groups, Luckybug_and_friends. The other is for a swap on SCS and is strictly Valentines.That has to be my most favorite Holiday. I just love the colors and all the love that that is in the air! On 2 of the ATC's you can see where I paper pieced the dress of the Bella(Balloonabella), I also used crystal effects on the balloons and added ultra fine glitter. I love glitter even though I usually wear more than I put on the cards! The atc on the left, I us…
