My beautiful niece got married this past weekend. I wanted to create the wonderful couple a keepsake card for the special occasion, and here is what I came up with.

Here are a couple cards I created using the Flower Shop stamp set along with the Blendabilities Markers. This first card is fairly quick & easy to make.
Have a great weekend!

I cannot think of many things more adorable at Christmastime than either a baby or a kitten opening gifts. Both seem to be more interested in the packaging than what is inside. This page shows my 1 1/2 year old great-nephew opening one of his presents and my Mom's kitten playing inside an opened box.
Holiday Carryover List...until August 27th. (when the 2014 Holiday Catalog goes live on 8-28, they will be retired) so make sure to check out the list to see what is still available!
Back in early December, I shared these two pages. They were all ready to add my Christmas photos & a little journaling. Here's what they look like now that I completed them...

Today I have a couple cards to share using basically the same supplies & the same technique, but the second one is has a little more detail. I used the Swallowtail stamp and the spotlighting technique.
I used Gorgeous Grunge for the background and also added some sparkle with a layer of Silver Glimmer Paper. I didn't add a sentiment to this one...but can do that when I'm needing a card.
Have a beautiful day!

Have you ever wished you could emboss a detailed design using multi colors of embossing powders and be able to designate where each color would go on the design? Check out this multi-color embossed flower using the Mixed Bunch set to see what I mean...
Using dark card stock, such as Basic Black shown on my sample, hides any accidental "out of the lines" occurrences...so no worries about being super precise. Using line art verses solid images works better because using bolder images may show your brush strokes. Here's my finished card...
Mary Fish's Blog, and was super excited to try it. Hope you like this technique as well!
You are now able to order each of the color sets used on this card, plus Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight & the six color Skin Tone Assortment! If you haven't order these yet...your a missing out on a lot of coloring fun! Check out my Online Store to learn more.

Here's an extra special card that I made for my dear Aunt's birthday.
Then I set to work bleaching the card stock area inside the flowers, leaves and plumage on top of his head so that I could color those as well.

I needed some quick thank you cards that didn't "have bows or other stuff "on them for my son to send out.

Woo Hoo!...it's you birthday! Well, maybe not yours exactly, but I'm sure maybe someone, somewhere, reading this is having a birthday today. Anyways...here's a quick & easy card to make using the Big News set.
Using the fine tipped Project Life Journaling Pen, I added a little doodle border around the main image to sorta match the hand drawn look of the banner, and finished it off with a Basic Rhinestone in each corner.
With the start of the new month, Stampin Up! has a great new special! When you buy three packs of Designer Series paper...you'll get the third one FREE! (Specialty paper & stacks are not included in this offer)
