Another simple valentine's card that I made for my child to give to her teacher. maybe I'll staple a bag of candy or cookies to the back of it and make it a big tag :)
This is a cute spring card I made. Colors are perfect plum and sage shadow. I used my dots cb folder on the purple piece. I used my oval nestabilities for main image and I colored it in with my markers. Patterned paper and ribbon are from stampin up. Hope you like it :)
I think this card is a cute valentine's day card. I made it for my son to give to his teacher. So its still kinda boyish so he won't feel embarrased to give it to her. All materials used are stampin up except the handmade flower i crocheted myself :) Colors are chocolate chip, ruby red, and very vanilla and patterned paper to natch the ruby red color. Very vanilla ribbon pulls it all together. Thanks for stopping by :)

I know it is a little early for valentines day cards but this is a valentine's day card that I made for my darling husband. My first layer is ruby red cs that I sponged with vintage photo ink to give it more of a muted look. The second layer is designer patterned paper. The first layer of scalloped oval is sort of a khaki colored cs cause I wanted to keep it masculine looking and not so girly. The second scalloped oval layer is whisper white cs. I cut these scalloped ovals out using my nestabilities dies. The image is stamped with the khaki ink and then ruby red ink for the 2nd layer of that image. The sentiment is stamped with ruby red ink and it says (ok, corny moment beware,lol) you make my life a beautiful thing. I fell in love with it and knew it would be perfect for this card. I then added some stickles dots around the scalloped border and a white satin and organza bow. I hope you like it as much as I do :) I then designed a nice insert for the inside of the card where i'll write a quick personal message.
Another calendar I made but this time instead of square chipboard I used my nestabilities dies to cut out this designer square instead of a plain square. I still added the designer patterned paper but didn't sand the edges to give it more of a crisp clean look. Used my zutter machine to punch the holes and bind it all together. hope you like it :)
I crocheted this bookmark to give to my mom. This is actually the first of three that I made to give as christmas gifts for my mom, my mil, and my sil.
This atc was made for black and white with a smidge of red theme :) First layer is basic black cs, second layer is real red cs, top layer whisper white cs that i stamped with my background stamp using basic black ink. I then stamped image on a seperate piece of whisper white cs in basic black ink. Then I colored frame and sentiment with my real marker and adhered it to top layer in the center and 4 black brads onto each corner. you like? :)
This atc was made for a yellow and black theme. The first layer is basic black cs, second layer is so saffron cs thta i stamped with a background stamp in basic balck ink. Top layer is whisper white. I stamped the sentiment in basic black ink. I stamped image with so saffron ink and sponged it in using my so saffron pastel chalks. Knot bow was made using basic black ribbon. I then added gold pearl stickles to flower stems.
I made this calendar using 2 4x4 chipboard squares and pasted this pretty designer patterned paper and then sanded the edges to give it an aged look to it. The ribbon bow was made with silvery organza ribbon and kept together with a sliver flower and brad. Holes were punched with my zutter and bound and put together to make a cute gift for my mom :)
This was a christmas card I made for one of my best friends. The first layer is ballet blue cs. The second layer is bashful blue cs. The image and sentiment are stamped with ballet blue ink. I then sponged white pastel chalks under the image to make it appear like a layer of snow. Then on the tree I added dots of crystal clear stickles that made it appear glittery like snow on branches :)
This atc was made for red, white and blue with silver and a patriotic theme. My first layer is brilliant blue cs, second layer is real red cs, top layer is whisper white cs. I used real red ribbon for knot bow. I stamped sentiment in brilliant blue ink. I used this image and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder because it kind of reminded me of fireworks. lol :) enjoy!!
This atc was made for a yellow and blue atc swap. ATC's measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are meant to be cute and simple or as extravagant as you want them to be :) So, my first layer is blue, night of navy, cs my second layer was so saffron cs sponged with night of navy ink then the next layer is white cs sponged with so saffron ink. I stamped the snowflakes with night of navy blue ink. The ribbon bow is also night of navy ribbon. I added one large snowflake in the center that was heat embosseed using irridescent ice embossing powder to give a snowy shimmery effect. I did that with the sentiment as well :) hope you like it!
I made this calendar by first using 2-4x4 chipboard squares that I covered with cute designer patterned paper and sanded the edges for an aged look. Then I used my zutter to punch the holes through the chipboard and the calendar pages. I put it all together and added the binding and a ribbon bow to finish it off. Hope you like it!!
I received these during a gift exchange at our demontrator holiday party. They were made first using wine glasses. The powder inside is salt and there was a tealight on that. The paper shade was made using vellum cardstock and then stamped with ballet blue ink and snowflake stamps then glitter on top of the ink. Cute ribbon bows on stems were ballet blue, and organza ribbon. I think I got the best gift of all :) enjoy!!
