Sketch Saturday

Happy Sunday all my stamping friends. Another challenge completed, This one I started last night and finished it today. This creation is for my son's PaPa ad today is his Birthday so I needed to make a card for him to give to PaPa. This is my take on The Sketch Saturday challenge. I hope you enjoy it! I made a card similar to this one for my DH Gramma ( I mean making it with the Balloons) but totally different colors.
Here are the supplies I used: DP: My Minds Eye "Confetti" Celebrate "Brothers" Zig Zag/Dark Blue Paper. YoYo Yellow,sage shadow and white CS Swiss dots & Mosiac Embossing folder(for the balloons and the YoYo yellow panel) Yellow embr. floss and a Blue bow from Martha Stewart(pre tied of course because I cannot tie a bow for nothing! LOL) The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set that I have .
So, Enjoy my creation and Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

The Pink Elephant challenge

Hello all, Wow, It has been a while since I have been on here. I am so sorry for that. I have gone thru a little lack of creativity the last week or so. I have actually been at my desk every night but just couldn't get those creative juices flowing so tonight I am on a mission to get at least 3 challenges completed and posted to share with you all. No ifs ands or buts about it so onto the first one. This one is from The Pink Elephant, What a fun site and this weeks challenge was tons o' fun! I started with a image from "Me and my big ideas. This was the first time this image has even seen ink and it was super duper easy to color in. I have like 5 or 6 of the M&MBI's stamps and they are all so darn cute, I'll share those with you all a little later .
The suplies I used for this creation were:
DP from My Minds Eye, image stamped in Memento's Tuxedo black, cardstock used is Chocolate chip,Riding hood red, Pretty in Pink and white. Image colored in with my Copic…

Sketch Saturday #90

Hello all, Well I completed another challenge. This one is from Sketch Saturday. I am a total sketch challenge junkie. Once I get goin on a challenge I just cant put it down until I have completed it. This one was no exception. I added a whole buncha bling on this one too. If anyone knows me they know that I love glitter and bling. Sometimes I will wake up and have these specks of glitter in my hair, on my face, just everywhere.
So for this challenge I used an image from InStyle stamps called Joyce and Marcy. I colored them in with my Copics and also used a a jelly pen(on her hair band and bracelet) and smooch(in green apple) on the coffee cups. I embossed the blue CS with my D'vine swirls EF and the DP is from a DCWV stack. Prima flowers were added to the top right and I added bling brads to the middle of each flower. I also added some pink bling around both scalloped circles.
The sentiment I actually printed off on my computer and it says "Can I interest you in some goss…

Birthday card for Gramma

Hello all, How is everyone doing this warm February day? Well at least here in The San Francisco Bay area, we are having 70 degree days. I cant believe it. They say it isn't going to last too much longer. We have 3 storms coming in this weekend so better enjoy this beautiful weather while we can.
So, onto my creation. This one I made in a quick hurry for DH's Gramma. She is turning 93 tomorrow and I wanted to make it totally special for her. When I say I made this quick, I mean in about and hour. For the past week I knew I needed to make her one but I just couldn't get the creativity flowing. I am one of those people that works extremely well under pressure and this creation needed to be mailed out this am(like first thing) in order to get to her tomorrow(Wednesday) so late last night it just kinda came to me! The DP I used is Cottage Wall from Stampin Up!, My color combo is Old Olive, Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry. The balloons are punched out and I embossed 1 wit…

A little something

Hello all, Just a quick little creation that I wanted to share with you all. I just got this new stamp Designed by Elizabeth Bell for Susana's custom art and card design. You have got to go to her site. She has great prices on everything a paper crafter needs. I had never even heard of this site then I received a gift in the mail from a fellow paper crafter and the address was from someone in the bay area where I live so I had to go and check out the site and I was so excited. She carries Copics, Elizabeth Bell images,Victoria Case Images and all kinds of great crafting items. So when you get a chance, go on over and check out this wonderful site.
Anyways, I couldn't wait to color my new image in. ( SCACD also has a few really easy tutorials on coloring in hair,skin and clothes with your Copics.) I am really happy with how my coloring turned out. Practice makes perfect and I am going to get lotsa practice.

I used my Spellbinders Labels dies on both my stamped image and als…

Gina's Feb. Stamp camp

Here we have the projects that we completed at Gina's stamp camp tonight. These are just some totally adorable projects. Check out the 3 bottles in the holder. Isn't it cute? She had everything cut and scored for us to just put together and she even filled the jars with bubble gum, M&M's and jelly beans. So so cute! Then we put together a little milk carton and closed it of with one of the Stampin Up! clips(they are so teeny tiny) and the 3rd. and final project was a friend 3X3 card. I so look forward to her stamp camps every month. A fun and creative night out with a great bunch of ladies! Well, I am off to hopefully get my Valentines goodies done so I will be seeing you soon!

2 Challenges in1

Hello everyone. Well, This creation I have for you is actually 2 challenges in 1. As you can see above, the sketch challenge from The Sweet Stop, which was really fun but took me a while to get it put together. Have you ever had those moments where no matter what DP you put together it never looks quite right? Well, That is why I didn't use any DP. My color scheme is (the other challenge) Blue and white. This was the challenge from Stamptacular Sunday challenge. Also, It had to be winter themed. I used my Belinda Bumberboots fromStamping Bella. Isn't she just so darn cute? I embossed my card stock with my A2 EF folders,(Swiss dots, my fave! and tiny bubbles) I also added glitter to her umbrella and skirt and wings(is that what they are? LOL! Anyways, I just love glitter and I had seen another creation out there with the umbrella all glittered in. Really purty! I love love love glitter! Belinda was also colored in with my copics and you cant see it too well, but I added a li…
