I did this card for Kristina Werner's Color. It seriously makes me think of a Marvel Comic. But my hubby is my superstar, so this is very fitting! What would I do without him? Probably lie here in a pool of filth with my three children running around me wreaking havoc. Luckily, I have this sweet man to help me with the kids, help with the the cleaning and just to have a great time with! These were definitely more manly colors, and I like how this turned out! I will add some tips to this post later on... Thanks for looking!

Sweet Suprise!

This card was done for my Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards. The card was supposed to have the major focus on the inside. At least that is how I took it! So here is my take on the challenge! This stamp set, Stampin' Up's Tart and Tangy is one of my favorites and I love how the "scallop" fruit on the inside looks! I reminds me of paper sassafrass lass released last summer.

The hole on the front was made with a 1inch circle punch, then the matching fruit on the inside was made with the 1 1/4, the 1 3/8, and the the scallop circle punches. It is really important to use a smaller hole on the outside, or the inside piece showing through can get stuck or lift up... Don't ask me how I know that... : )

Hope you are enjoying the start of your holiday weekend!

I am excited to be doing a class next week making hairbows with Stampin' Up Crochet flowers! I think they are so cute! We will also be making a set with the Pigtails Ribbon set from the catalog as well. Each person will make two of each bow and a box to give a gift of a set if they would like and a matching card! This class will be held next Friday the 29th at my house, 9:30-11:30 and again at 2:30-5. This class is $20. If you would like to purchase the bows without having to make them yourself, please email me, and I will let you know the pricing.

Happy Birthday!

This is the Stampin up Level 3 Hostess set paper. I LOVE IT! I also used the rub-on from the set as well. If you book a party you could possibly earn this set for free! I used the scallop punch on another project... the one from yesterday to be exact, and those red stripes on the baja breeze? Those are the "scraps" from scalloping! I have a serious paper addiction... I horde. I refuse to throw away scraps... and look how pretty they look right there!

A Card

This is my first attempt at posting to my blog. I am looking forward to sharing my hobby with you! My first card I am posting today was for a sympathy swap I did this week. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get my sentiment in just the right spot! I am addicted to that very simple tool now!

This is Stampin' Up! retired Ginger Blossom paper, which I love! This was inspired by this card by Vikki on It's a Stamp Thing.
