OMGiggles! I made a tri-fold

I am so excited that I actually made this card. There is an awesome tutorial on SCS and it was so easy to follow. If I can do it, anyone can! And I only wasted 1 sheet of 12 X 12(LOL) I think I am going to make more of these. the patterned paper I used is from We R memory keepers and is from the white out collection. I also use my nesties in the scallop oval and the sentiment is from Rubber Stampede and it says, "No act of kindness, no matter how small, Is ever wasted" I love that sentiment! I am just so excited to be able to share this project with you all! Go HERE and try it out!

Splitcoast Color Challenge


Hello all my blogger friends, Here I have another challenge card that I made tonight. This one is for the Splitcoast stampers color challenge. The challenge colors are Certainly celery,Pixie Pink and Apricot appeal. I easily included all these colors into my card. and the DP was a scrap that I had, I don't even remember who it is by but it was perfect for the challenge. The image I chose was Girls rule from Victoria Case and isn't she just adorable? I colored her in with my Copics. I had finished the card and was looking at it and it needed something so I decided to add some bling to it and Voila! There you have it!
I think I have found some mojo (which I thought I had totally lost) so, off I go to do some more creatin!
Big Hugs all!!!

Mojo Monday #97


Oh my goodness, This was I think the funnest challenge sketch that I have done is a while. This is a sketch challenge with Mojo Monday and I love challenges!
I had to make a birthday card for my niece and this sketch was perfect. I used an image from Stamping Bella called Eloise Greengrass and I paper pieced her little dress with paper from Debbie Mumm, a baby girl collection
I also used it on the base of the card along with another piece from the same collection. I then used the green glitter cardstock from DCWV and used my nesties in the scallop circle. My finishing touch was the build a brads that I circle punched a flower from the Debbie Mumm paper. I am such a glitter freak, I used some crystal effects and added glitter to her wings. The flower is colored in with my spicas and also added on the stem. I totally love this card. Glitter glitter everywhere!!

Adorable Gate Fold card



Here is a gate fold card that I made the other night. I was in a Penny Black ATC swap and had some leftover images so I thought they would be perfect for a smaller gate fold card. I got the instructions from Splitcoast Stampers and this is a size gate fold that I had never done before. This is 4 X 4 1/4. Now I have to make an envie for it because this card is just too cute to not use. My favorite part of this image is his eyes. I added googley eyes. I again, used my spicas on his polka dots so it added some glitter effects to the image. The base of the card is Pretty in pink and the DP is called Princess Stripe from Pebbles Inc. Such pretty girlie colors!

A Challenge Card


Here is a card that I made for a challenge on one of my Yahoo groups "Sisterhood of the blogging stampers" This one was really fun and I added a few things to it that just made it pop.
I chose to use a Stampin Bella Image"Savvyshoppabella" My Bellas have been getting neglected lately so you will be seeing more creations done using Stamping Bella. I just Love those images. So Sassy!
I used Crystal lacquer on her boots and jacket to give them that Pleather look. Kinda cool, huh? I also used my Spicas on the shopping bags. I just love those pens. Anything glitter, I adore ! Sometimes I can get a little carried away with the glitter but thats ok, It so sparkley! I even try to use glitter on my sons baseball pages(he's 13) but that doesnt go over too well, LOL! The DP I used was a partial piece that I had in my scraps, I just love the colors so I just had to use it! The sentiment is a random stamp that I bought from the $ bin at Michaels. The card base is Barely Banana.
I havent made too many cards lately, I am having a huge Garage Sale on Saturday so I have bee trying to clean out my closets and um, Yes, I am going to say it, go thru and eliminate some of my scrapbboking and stamping stuff, (tear in my eye) I just have so much, There are things that I have found in a drawer and was like, wow, I could have used that on this challenge or that challenge. I hate to do it, but I am sure, I will be totally restocked in a month or 2. LOL!

I also have a friend that is going to be here and she sells scrapbooking stickers, 1000's of stickers and she is going to set up. She has the best prices on every brand any theme you could imagine. Most Jollees are $1.00 and she also sells Prismacolor double end markers for $1.50. I usually go crazy whenever I hit her booth at the swap meet. So if anyone lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, Come on by on Saturday!

Penny Black ATC


I first want to say, That I love making ATC's(Artist trading cards). They are so much fun to make and so easy. This ATC is a swap that I am in and it is a Penny Black image called Elephant song. Isnt it just adorable? The colors I used in this are Pacific Point,Pixie pinknad the scallop oval is My minds eye. I also used my Spica's on the polka dots in blue and pink and colored her toe nails in with my red spica. You cant really tell from the picture but I used googley eyes on the elephant for a little pop. The "Wish Big" sentiment is from short and sweet from Stampin up! For the Pixie Pink I used my swiss dots EF on my Big Kick.
For some reason the photo didnt turn out as clear as i would like it. I should be getting my swaps back in a few weeks so I will share when they arrive!

Mojo Monday Week 94

Here is my entry into Mojo Monday #94. This was alot of fun to put together as I havent done a whole lot of sketches lately. I used a stamped image from Stamping Bella name Phoebe Ketto. Isnt she adorable? I actually used no DP on this one this time, I do love my DP(all 5000 pieces of it LOL) but I wanted to do something different for me! I used my Spots and Dots EF and embossed the Lovely lilac,yoyo yellow,glorious green and real red. I then used my scallop edge nestie and my scallop punch.
I did color Ketto in with my spicas and my gelly pens and used crystal effects and glitter on the wings. I also added some red ribbon, Pretty darn cute!
Well I am off to do some more challenges!
