Finial Press Love You Much

I saw this card on By Weekend Warrior but it had a few differences.  I changed mine up and used a different sheet of the Sending Love DSP.  I absolutely LOVE this paper!  It's so pretty!  This was also my first time using the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  I love this texture!  It adds a whole other dimension to the card and a touch of elegance! I sold 5 of these to my friend Eileen!  YAY! I'm always accepting orders!

Top Note Valentine

This is a tweek on a card I saw on  I thought it was awesome but it was a Christmas card and I really didn't need a Christmas card this time of year!  I was really excited to use my new Big Shot machine that I got last week.  The Top Note die was the first one I used aside from the Perfect Polka Dot textured impressions folder.  I also got to use the clear mounted Love You Much stamp from the Whimsical Words set and got some use out of Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper. Anyway, I'm quite happy with how this one turned out and I even sold a couple!  Thanks Eileen! 

Here's the Breakdown:

Paper:  Whisper White and Real Red Card Stock, Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper

Stamps:  Whimsical Words, Vintage Vogue

Fox & Friends Thank You's

I saw these cute thank you cards on posted by "forever designing".  I thought they were super cute and small and quick and easy to make.  I changed mine a bit because she used the Forest Friends stamp set and I didn't have it yet so I used the Fox & Friends set instead.   I'm planning to make a box to go with them to put them inside and maybe a couple more cards to make it a set of 5 or 6. 

The Breakdown:

Stamps:  Fox & Friends, Trendy Trees

Ink:  Chocolate Chip classic ink

Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Taken with Teal and Sweet Pea DSP

Tools:  Oval punch, scallop circle punch and circle punches

Accessores:  stitched pink and brown ribbon

Enjoy!  {I'm always accepting orders ;0) }

Look Who's Turning 3!

This card is for my son Daniel's 3rd birthday!  He's obsessed with trains so I thought using the Choo Choo set would be perfect!  I got some inspiration from another card I found on  but I changed it up and made my own version and based my color scheme on the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper that I used.  For the puffs of smoke, I used the stamp from Choo Choo and embossed with Detail White embossing powder after stamping it with Versamark ink.    I think Daniel will actually really like this card!  (At least I hope so! LOL!)

The Breakdown:

Paper:  Whisper White, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Sweet Pea DSP

Stamps:  Choo Choo, Look Who's Turning... and the Train Track wheel

Ink:  Taken with Teal and Chocolate Chip classic ink, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip Stamp'n'Write Markers, and Versamark

Tools:  1/16" hole punch, Paper trimmer, circle punches and the Modern Label punch, silver brad

Accessories:  Chocolate Chip stitched grosgrain ribbon

Choo Choo Birthday Invitations

I found these invitations while searching around for ideas on  Anne Matasci posted some like this.  I tweaked them just a bit.  Her's weren't invitations but I really liked the idea of them being smaller and so easy to do.  They are 3X3" cards so I made 9 of them in one day.  I think they turned super cute!  Probably going to have to make more!

You can see in this example to the right that there is a train in the middle of the track wheel stamp.  I had to make a masking for each train car.  I stamped the train, then cut it out.  Then I stamped the train on my card, covered the stamped image with the masking, and rolled my train track wheel over it so the track doesn't go over the train.  Masking is a neat trick!

Here's the Breakdown:
Ballet Blue, Crushed Curry, Real Red and Whisper White Card Stock
Choo Choo and Eat Cake (I think), Train Tracks Wheel
Ballet Blue, Real Red, Night of Navy and Crushed Curry Stamp'n'Write Markers, and Chocolate Chip classic ink
Please let me know if you ever have any questions!  Thanks for looking!

Status Update!

Hi friends!  Sorry it has taken me so long to post again.  We were out of town for a while and I wasn't able to make anything.  When we got back, I started making things again but didn't take pictures of them!  Oops!  So, I just took pictures of a bunch of the things I've been working on lately and I'll be posting more over the next couple of days.  I posted 2 projects today and I'll be doing more soon!  I just got a new shipment of products yesterday and started using a bit of it last night.  Unfortunately with little ones it is hard to have time to go work on stuff.  :0(  Oh well!  Well, I'm going to have to cut this short.  My youngest: Nathan (9 months on Thursday), is tired and in need of rocking to sleep.  TTYL!
