Day 4- Sheltering Tree

Today is Day 4 in the 30 day art challenge.  Today was a rough one and it made me really appreciate a friend I can totally count on.  So I made this card for them. 

I used a set from the Spring Catalog- it's called Sheltering Tree.  It's a photopolymer stamp set, and it is a lovely set to use.  There are lots of other elements but I kept it simple. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping :)

Day 3 .... Sale A Bration Thanks

here we are ... Day 3.  And I didn't think I would make it.   Not because I couldn't create a card today...but the weather has been horrendous here, and a 45 minute drive home took 3 hours!  By the time I got home, I was wrecked.  But I just had to open the box that was delivered today (it would be rude not to, right)?

so I pulled out a new stamp set and some new twine.

The stamp set is one of the new bonus items you can choose for FREE during this month for Sale A Bration.  It's a really nice set.  (there is another stamp set, a stack of vellum and current In-Colour twine/buttons you can also choose from that was added for this month) 

I used the blendabilities, which I am sad to report that for now, they are not available since there have been some problems with a few.  I am hoping that they come back soon, because they are great for colouring.

If you'd like to see what's available, visit my site. There's a link to the right.

Day 2 of the 30 Day Art Challenge

Well I am on a roll lol.  Day 2 and I made a wedding card.  I was asked to make a card for a co-worker who is getting married this month.  I wasn't told her wedding colours, but I knew the new SU Spring Catalog goodies would work very well.
I love the new SU Spring Catalog.  There are so many great items in there.  I used the stamp set- The New Two.  I also used the new Something Borrowed DSP.  It coordinates with Sahara Sand and Whisper White.  Totally Classic.

Thanks for stopping by....

wonder what Day 3 will bring...

Happy Stamping!

Day 1 of the 30 day art challenge

I have decided to take part on a team 30 day art challenge.  Every day I plan on posting a new card/project and hopefully that'll help me with my blogging as well

so here goes- Day 1

I used Soft Suede as my card base and the SAB Best Year Ever DSP. (you can earn that free during Sale A Bration).  I used the Big Day stamp set (another free item you can choose) 

This cam together rather quickly, but makes a great birthday card

thanks for stopping by

Happy Stamping!

Valentine's goodies

A cold Sunday afternoon and preparing for the upcoming storm, and I worked on a few things.  I'm putting together one of the Spring bouquet kits and realized I do not have a hot glue I just did all the stamping ahead of time.  Then I turned my attention to the new My Paper Pumpkin kit I received on Saturday....

The kit makes 24 treat sacks and includes everything you need to make them.  They are really cute...however, since my son is almost 20, and doesn't need the Valentine treats for class (which this would make an awesome set for)!  I made 2 cards and 2 treat bags for a friend. 

I am really loving the My Paper Pumpkin kits!

If you'd like to get your own monthly kit, let me know.  There is a special right now, that if you do a 3 month paid subscription during Sale A Bration, you can save on the kits.

Thanks for stopping by...

Of course if you want to get your items at an additional discount- I'm always looking for new recruits.  You can do as much or as little as you want.  Just ask me how.

Come Party With Me!

Thursday was my birthday, and since last year I've done a "come party with me" event.  Guests come make cards and celebrate my birthday---but they get the presents!  It was a lot of fun last year, and since I went to the Sale-A-Bration kick off...I have a huge surprise for my guests!  They will be playing with some NEW product that will be available January 6, 2015

 this first card uses 2 new sets.  I love the new lotus blossom.  And you want to know something?  You can earn it FREE!  during Sale A Bration, for every $50 you spend, you can choose an item from the SAB catalog FREE!  (and it is PACKED with great items)!  The second stamp set used is: Best Day Ever.  I just thought it added some fun to the lotus blossoms.

 This card was FUN to make!  It uses a new stamp and framelit bundle. AND something awesome... Washi sheets.  Yes you read that right.  In the new Occasions catalog there are washi sheets.  8 sheets (2 sheets of 4 designs/colours)  and they were fun to play with.  The balloon is a framelit.  And I can see so many ideas to be made with them!

 Now I love the bow die we have, but this is just adorable... a bow PUNCH!  It makes such an adorable addition to a card or the tiny treat boxes.  The DSP used is from the birthday specialty paper...and it's beautiful!  There are 2 sheets with gold accents (need I say more)?

 This quick little card came together fast and easy with the use of the new Ornate Tag topper punch. (yes that means there is a new tag topper coming)  I love the Celebrate Today stamp set.  I think this will be one of my favourite birthday stamp sets.
The last card that they'll make is using the stamp set we received FREE at the SAB kick off!  (who doesn't like FREE?)  It's called One Tag Fits All.  There are so many great things to make with this set.

Thanks for stopping by, and I can't wait for my guests to arrive tomorrow!
