Happy New Year's Eve!

Evening All,
I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year as we close out 2013 and welcome 2014! I had a little time to myself this afternoon and decided to prep one of my cards for my next club class. I wanted to use the new Co'redinations Cardstock. Here is what I came up with:

I wanted a card that was flexible enough to be used as a Valentine or any general occasion. The use of the Primrose Petals base and coordinating Co'redination Cardstock that comes in all of the colors made this project easy! After using the Apothecary Accents framelits I then ran it through the Lattice EF and sanded it. I used the Raspberry Ripple in-color and punched out the flower and used the En Frances in Versamark to coordinate with the background. A little "bling" in the center and I was done. Love this cardstock!
Have a Happy New year!

Still Here

Morning All,
Sorry for my slow posts! Been busy like everyone else I suppose, even though its "school vaca" I cover vacation days at my other job, which is pretty busy this week! Anyway I wanted to share a Christmas card I made for some friends right before Christmas:

Its very simple but I thought, cute nonetheless. I did a card base of Old Olive, used my awesome Silver Stamp pad for the snowflakes, added the buttons as my ornaments and then used my Silver Ribbon to "hang" the ornaments.
I also wanted to share that Stampin Up added more items to the Clearance Rack!! Check it out here!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Last minute gifts!

Hi All,
Thought I would share some more Christmas gifts that I finally got made. I was able to finish up my great aunt's Easter cards. I give them to her on Christmas  so she can be ready, as she is quite the card addict! Here is what I came up with:
I endeavor to use all of my supplies so I had some paper left from the last catty and punched out a cute bunny using the clear button for his tail. A sentiment from my retired Well Scripted set and I was done, Hope she likes it! Have a great day!

A little late!

Evening All,
I wanted to share a card I made for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Here was their sketch:
Of course I messed up and didnt post it soon enough but I can at least share it here!
I used Wisteria Wonder as a base, inked the "Ears to You" retired stamp, placed a few strips of retired DP and some Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine on the center bunny! I liked it even if I didn't get a chance to enter it!! Hope you have a great night!

Finally a little progress!

Evening All,
Well I think this is a first, doing two posts on one day! I needed to finish up some of my Christmas gifts which included some Valentines for my Grandmother. Of course I have had a bit of a "block" so I went on over to CAS Colors and Sketch Blog and wasn't disappointed. They had a great sketch:

And here is what I came up with:
I used some of my last bits of Pretty in Pink and my Sending Love DP (perfect for Valentines day!). I decided to run the square of Very Vanilla through my Big Shot with my Polka Dot embossing folder and heat embossed my image in white powder. Very sparkly! Hope she likes it! Have a great night!

Another Freshly Made Sunday

Evening All,
I wanted to share a card I made recently after seeing the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. Check it out here:
Here is what I came up with:
I went a bit rustic and I rotated the sketch. I used a base of Cherry Cobbler with a panel of Crumb Cake on Early Espresso. I punched out the ornament from the Deck the Halls DP I had hoarded. A little Bakers Twine and a sentiment from Short and Sweet and I was done! Simple and fun! Have a great night
