Vintage Christmas...

The challenge this week for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge was to use a vintage theme. This was a little tricky for me....but here's what I came up with!

When I thought of vintage, the colours that came to mind were definitely browns and vanillas. I thought trying snowflakes might be interesting!

I used AmyR's Snowflakes set, from All That Scraps. The sketch for the card is Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #82. I added some marble bella dots to the card as well!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It's Time for Another...

Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!

Hope you are enjoying the hop thus far! I can't wait to see all the creations!

For my card today, I chose to use Sprinkled with Love. This is actually the first set I ever purchased from Taylored Expressions....and the one that got me hooked!!

I stamped the ice cream cone onto Choice Snow White, twice, and coloured it in with my copics. I cut out the ice cream part and popped it up on top, then coloured it with my Clear Glaze Pen, which actually shows up really nice in the picture! The paper is from DeLovely, by Cosmo Cricket.

Please make sure you stop by all the hoppers (they are in the list below!)

Have a great Tuesday!

An SFYTT Christmas

I have finally gotten back to getting some Christmas cards made! I was on a roll.....then summer came!

This card was intended to work for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge....however the punch I did use wasn't a border punch! Oops!

The sketch for this card is from Jen's Sketch for You to Try. The Reindeer is from Bugaboo Stamps....he was printed out on Choice Snow White paper and coloured with copics. I used my Clear Glaze Pen on the lights, and added some stickles to make them appear as though they were lit!. The paper is from SU, called Ski Slope. To finish the card I added some Glitter Bella Dots, and some red ribbon.

Have a great Sunday!

It's Bellarific Friday...

just a little late!

This is the card I created for the Bellarific Friday Challenge this week!

I used one of the new releases from Stamping Bella. This is Little Peep's Birthday Cake! Isn't she adorable?

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her in with my copics. All the supplies used on the card are from the Summertime Project Pantry Kit from Taylored Expressions. These kits are sooooo perfect! They have everything you need!

Sorry for the short post. I am typing this in between batches of Tomato Sauce!

Have a great weekend!

Wouldn't it be nice..

if we could all drive around a hot pink scooter? Some days I think it would be great! ( my kids likely wouldn't think the same!)

This is Scooter Chloe, one of my favourite stamps from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps! She was stamped on some Choice Snow White and coloured in with my copics. Her scarf was paper-pieced with some of the Olivia paper by Basic Grey. The sketch for this card is from the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #6.

Thanks for stopping by today....hope you enjoy your Thursday!

Babies, Babies...

and more babies!

A few of my girlfriends are expecting, or have already had their little bundles this summer! This card was for a friend's baby shower that was last month. She had a little girl just a few weeks ago!

I found this ribbon at Wal-Mart a while ago, and this was the base for the card! I use Babycarriageabella, from Stamping Bella. Man, I wish I looked as cute as her pregnant! I coloured her in with my copics, and used some stickles for a little bit of glitter! The patterned paper is from a Martha Stewart pack that I picked up some time ago. To finish the card, I added some Chocolate Bella Dots.

Have a great Wednesday!

I'm Baaaack!

Did you think I fell off the planet? I think I almost did! It has been an extremely hectic summer, but now that things are starting to wind down, maybe I'll be able to get some more regular posting done! (not to mention catch up on all the challenges I have been missing out on!)

Today I have two cards to show you. They are going to be part of a set for my SIL for their wedding Thank Yous.

I absolutely LOVE this set from Taylored Expressions. It's called Summer Afternoon, and as soon as it was released, I knew it would work PERFECTLY for these cards! I have also used the Many Marvelous Monograms from Taylor's store, definitely a must have!

The base of the cards is Kraft (my fave!), ohhhh, making these a perfect submission for Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday #38!! The DP is Making Memories Black and White and the ribbon is actually left over from their wedding decorations!

Thanks for stopping by!
