Sneek Peek

This is one of the new sets that you'll find in the Occasions mini catalog. This set is called Send Me Soaring. I thought I'd try something other than flowers and butterflies. I used Lucy Limeade and Elegant Eggplant cs and I used Limeade, Eggplant and Melon Mambo ink for the kites and Bashful Blue for the clouds. It's my first attempt with this set. I also used some of the new twine that's in the mini. It's the Lucky Limeade twine. Have a great day and Happy New Year!!

Best of Everything

Happy Friday Ladies. I'm so happy it's the weekend! I came home to a lovely package from UPS. I didn't want to order anymore holiday sets, so I got this cute little set Best of Everything. I copied the layout from this fabulous card here. I actually CASED that card too I loved it so much. My sentiment is a little crooked, but I think it's still cute. Have a great weekend.

Winter Post CASE

Hello Ladies. Happy Saturday! I went to my upline Karen's house last night for a class. She had some great cards from some swaps she participated in. I saw one that I just loved. It used a different stamp set, but I CASED everything else on the card. I'll have to get the name from Karen so I could give that person credit for such a great card. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Happy Sunday Ladies. I made this card this morning with Pennant Parade and Create a Cupcake stamp sets. I saw a few cards that made icecream cones, so I wanted to try it. It's simple but cute.

My First Swap Card

Happy Wednesday Ladies. This is my first swap card ever. I was really intimidated to do a swap, but I saw one for "newbies." I only had to make 10 so it wasn't too bad. I did a lot of punching for this one though. The colors look awful with my scanner, but I think it's a cute card. I used one of my new sets Pennant Parade and the punch.

Flower Card

Hello Ladies. This card happened by accident. Again I wanted to try and use the DSP Beyond the Garden and it wasn't working for me. I just stamped these images. I noticed that I glued the ribbon on the wrong end of the cs (it was supposed to be on the bottom). I do love the way it turned out. I just wish it showed up better because it looks better than the picture does. Have a great day & happy stamping!

Thinking of You

Happy Monday Ladies. I really like this set and LOVE this embossing folder. I tried to use some of the DSP (Beyond the Garden) with it, but just couldn't work it out. I don't like this DSP like I thought I would. Only a couple of sheets are useable to make card. The flowers are too big. Well anyways this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! Happy Stamping.

Cute Cards!

Here are a few cards I made at a Birthday card event I went to yesterday. We made 8 birthday cards. Thanks to Karen Long for a great time. I finally had a chance to go to someone else's event instead of having one myself. I decided to drop as a demonstrator and just be someone else's customer (I'll miss the discount though!!).
