I'm about 30 minutes late getting this posted. I just returned from a business trip to Albuquerque and decided I didn't like what I had already made for this Hop. Oh silly me.....I had to go in my stamp room and try and find something I could recycle. Last Christmas both Michael and I received Ipod Nanos and this is one of the boxes that they came in. I lined the box with the new Sweet Pea paper and used the Charming Stamp set to create the image. The green ribbon is from the new mini catalog. I hope you like it! Please leave commnents, as I really enjoy hearing from you. Enjoy your next stop at the wonderfully talented Karie B's blog and the remainder of the tour. Have a blessed day!
I made this card this morning before I came to work. The card stock is SU's Kraft, Bashful Blue, Always Artichoke and Whisper White. I colored the stamp with SU markers, Bashful Blue, Bordering Blue, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. The edges of the white are sponged with Always Artichoke and I drew the design on the edges with Always Artichoke. The ribbon is SU's Bashful Blue satin ribbon and the pearls are from the Pretties Kit. To give the card dimension I popped up the sentiment. The blue is punched with one of the new SU punches from the Occasions mini. I sure hope you like it! Please leave your comments and have a blessed weekend!
My boys and I went to the X Games last night and froze our patooties off. I'm not really sure if that's a word, but I'm sure you catch my drift. This was one of the snowmobile riders doing some absolutely crazy trick. I'm pleased with the picture, as I couldn't see in the back of the camera because of the sun glare and just started clicking away. It took 4 or 5 shots to get a good one. The second picture is of the boys and me waiting for the bus to come back down the hill (about an hour and a half wait in 20 degree weather). Michael, my younger son, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My older son, John, has decided that next year he's going to stay home, order pizza, drink hot chocolate and watch it all on television. Have a great day!
These are two of the five cards we are going to make this coming Thursday in my Card Stash Workshop. We will be making 5 cards total. I'm really excited as I have 5 people signed up, with another 5 tentative. Yippee!
The first card was made with SU punches, SU Razzleberry Lemonade Paper, Rich Razzleberry paper and ribbon. I looovveee the new Two Step Bird Punch! The possibilities with this punch are endless. Oh my, it just dawned on me, there isn't any stamping on this card. Oh yeah, that's so that you can stamp your own sentiment on the inside :)
The second card used SU's Bella Bleu DP, Not Quite navy, and the new satin ribbon. The sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration set "Whimsical Words".
If you have any questions, please feel free to mail. As usual, all of your comments are appreciated! Have a blessed weekend!
I'd love to tell you that this card turned out exactly like I planned....but, that wouldn't quite be the truth. The little hearts are covering up where my punching skills were not at their best. I started with a Real Red base card and added a Very Vanilla layer that I roughed up the edges. The next layer is SU's Sending Love Specialty DP. I punched the next layer with the scallop trim corner and border and had two corners that were far from perfect, hence the little hearts which were punched with the new tiny heart punch. The next layer is pretty in pink and is topped with the image layer made of very vanilla, stamped in Real Red and sponged with Pretty in Pink. The stamp set I used was SU's Wandering Words. I added dazzling diamonds and a few pearls to finish the card. Thank you for looking - hope you enjoy! Have a blessed week!
