Inked up my SU Chocolate bunny (finally).

Here's the lone Easter card that I have made so far this year. I love that chocolate bunny stamp that's in the current Stampin' Up Mini Catalog and I'm pretty sure that lots and lots of stampers have this in their stash. Who could resist?!

I stamped this image with my Tsukineko Galaxy Gold Brilliance Stamp Pad onto vellum. I then cut out the image and glued it onto the tag that I cut out with one of my Nestabilities sets. I added a handful of Primas, some pearls and some bling and here you go!

Mommy and Me time with Sarah Kay/Stampavie

My daughter had a birthday party to go to this weekend, so we sat down together and made this card for her little friend. I stamped the Stampavie image by Sarah Kay called Rosalie's Bicycle and my six-year-old daughter colored it with my Copic markers. I think she did a fantastic job!

While she colored the image, I put the background together, using my Nestabilities die and an old Creative Memories corner punch that I have in my stash. We had a great time working on this together.

We're going to a wedding today!

I just love weddings! Here's a card that I made for the bride and groom. I always try to keep wedding cards simple. I just used some Stampin' Up! card stock that I had on hand for this.

I cut the frame with my Cricut Sweethearts cartridge and the stamps that I used are a Studio G set that I picked up over a year ago at Michaels. I've gotten well more than my $1 worth with that set!

I stamped the image with Palette ink, stamped again with Versamark and heat embossed it with frosted embossing powder.

I love that Tiffany box look with the white satin bow. Especially for a wedding card.

Home is Where Your Story Begins.

I went for a simple card and I think that's what I got! All I used for this card is half a sheet of card stock, ink, stamps, ribbon and maybe ten minutes. I used Stampin' Up's Good Neighbors set for this--a set that I earned for free through this year's Sale-A-Bration. (Going on through the end of this month.)

I'm still trying to get the hang of getting everything aligned, but I like how this turned out despite a couple crooked roofs. Perhaps a Stamp a Majig will be my next must-have item.

The sentiment and sun stamps are from Unity Stamps. And the inks that I used are CTMH.

Followed my heart and found you!

Alright, I'm really on a Unity kick. But really, these sets that I have are so big I have to make lots of cards to use all of these awesome images!!

This card was made using stamps from their February 2010 Kit of the Month, Nothing but Blue Skies. The sentiment was a freebie they packed in my starter kit that comes from the August 2009 kit of the month, Following My Heart... And by the way, that one is their most popular kit sold to date. I don't have it yet, but I want it!

I used lots of Stickles on this card and just had fun with it. I started with a white card base, added a wavy strip of green grass and sponged the white sky background. I added a little bit of a string bow in the corner to finish it off.

Oh, and that bird nest is a creation that I came up with when I ventured past the paper crafting aisle at Hobby Lobby yesterday. Those eggs are ceramic and to make my "nest" I used a roll of raffia from the party aisle. It's all held inside a votive bowl, which I found half off. Just about everything's half off at Hobby Lobby at least one week out of the month!

Love, love, LOVE this stamp!

I earned this stamp for free as a referral credit when my friend, Cindi, signed up for Unity's Kit of the Month. I picked this stamp named So & So Loves.... I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. So cute!!

It's just colored in with Copics and the sentiment is also Unity. It's another freebie that was thrown into my welcome kit. It took me a while to figure out what it said because I was trying to look at it upside down!

Long time, no post!

I haven't posted in ages, but I've recently been bitten again by the stamping bug.

Last month I joined Unity Stamp's Kit of the Month Club and man oh man is it fantastic! Each month I get a new kit and the kit is HUGE. Many come with over 20 really cute stamps. Check it out.

I made this set using stamps from their "enjoy YOUR STORY...laugh" kit. I am a sucker for good tree images and that deer put me over the top.

The deer is paper pieced and I colored in some places with my Copic markers. Fun, fun, fun!!
