Not Done Yet..................

So here are some of the cards and the 2-5-7-10 treat bag I just did tonight or this morning - however you want to look at it. The two cards are pocket cards. They are fun to make too and the possibilities or should I say "stampabilities" are endless! Pictures don't really do it justice. The base on both cards is certainly celery and the other two main colors are apricot appeal and pretty in pink- both of these are from the 6 x 6 DSP Hostess level one. The treat bag is done in apricot appeal and certainly celery to complement the pocket card. The stamp set used on all of these is the For A Friend hostess level one set as well.

And last but not least, I got the great vase at a garage sale for a quarter and couldn't wait to get it home. I cleaned it up and used the Love and Happiness rub-ons. I filled the vase with pretty green frosted marbles and added my favorite flower - pastel pink & yellow Gerber Daisies!! Tied on a bow and there you go!
Okay, it's getting late now and I better head up to bed !!
Until we meet again.......

And More.......

This card has a great story behind it..... you see, I am always trying to use my extra materials that have been cut for a class or project. So I had the garden green already cut - left over from the "mom" card, and I decided to use some of my 6 x 6 DSP hostess paper and chose apricot appeal. Well just after I had this brainstorm, an actual storm blew through and knocked our power out. So we lit the candles and I stamped the rest by candle light!!!! I was pleasantly surprised when I got up the next morning!! Not too shabby if I might say so myself!!!

And here are more of my latest creations!! I found a tutorial on the two pocket cards last night - that would be Saturday since I just realized it's now 2:15 in the morning on Monday- anyways, I had to try them and fell in love !!! They are so easy and so much fun to make!
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them!!!

Stamp Club 5/25/2008

Okay are some of the projects that I have been working on lately!
First off we have a masculine themed card featuring Polka Dots & Paisley located on page 86 of the Spring/ Summer Collection 2008. Colors used were Night of Navy, Ballet Blue and Chocolate Chip. Ink used was the White craft ink. Finished with white grosgrain ribbon. This card was used for my stamp club today! And next we have a Father's day card..................

This is the Bronc Buster set located on page 107 of the S/S Collection 2008 as well as the Canvas background stamp on page 136. Colors used were Creamy Caramel for the base and Blue Bayou along with very vanilla. Ink is Close to Cocoa. Techniques used were DTP - dirct to paper, and sponging. Hemp twine finished off this project quite nicely.

As Promised...

As promised {{{Andi}}} , I am posting some of my recent projects. And I promise I will get some pics taken and post more later today.
The "mom" card featured the Tart & Tangy and One Smart Cookie Sets in the Occasion Mini. I also used the Real Red DSP from the 6 x 6 prints pack DSP in the level one hostess sets. Cardstock colors used were Garden Green, Real Red and Whisper White. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the edges of the whisper white are sponged with Real Red. I also used the scallop and 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches. I loved this card so much.... but not as much as my Mom did!! I couldn't wait to call her on Mother's Day!! "Mom" card done at last moth's stamp club!

Here are some of the letters I've done. I originally made this one to sell at the craft show, but two of my daughters asked { with their big blue eyes } for it for their room and I had to say yes!!!

"SWEET" - I made this for my daughters' room.

And this set of letters below was made for Emma's teacher. She absolutely loves them and just keeps going on about them everytime I see her!! She said she can't wait to take them home ( she has them displayed in her classroom right now) and that she has the perfect place for them!!

This I made for my 1st Graders teacher. She absolutely loved them!!!

So you see, I haven't been up to absolutely nothing!!! I have actually been up stamping late every night for the last week. This insomnia is kicking my butt, but atleast I am getting some great ideas and card samples made!!!
I promise to get back on in a while and get more posted!

Until then,
Happy Stampin'!!!!
