2010 In color Wicked Cool

I used the new In color from Stampin Up to make all these Halloween Projects. The Halloween set Wicked Cool can be found in the SU catalog. I wanted to make some cards using only cardstock and no DP. I used my embossing folders to give the cards some pop. The little treat box is made out of the Sizzix scallop envelope you need to two envelopes cut out and two 2 ¼ x 1 5/8 pieces. I found the idea on Chat Wszelaki’s blog Me, My Stamps and I. She has step my step pictures on how to make them.

Here is a link to the post: Envelope Box and Cards

Hope everyone has a great weekend. My girls and I are heading out in a couple of hours to Cincinnati to Fright Feast at Kings Island. Looking forward to spending time with them. They are 18 and 16. Time is just flying by!!!

Summer Cards

Here are some cards that I have worked on this summer. I use the hostess set Just Because on the so saffron and olive cards. I use a technique that I found on line a couple of weeks ago. You take an flower image you usually have to watercolor and stamp it on pattern paper and it gives a faux watercolor look. I love the results and it is so much easier than water coloring. Two other cards use a set from the summer mini. I love the bright colors and my daughter used them as thank you cards for her graduation gifts. The last card was very simple. I used color pencils on the image and the set is a retired hostess set. Tanks so much for visiting and have a great evening.

A whole lot of projects

Wow it has been a very long time since has posted. I got a new job in March and have been getting use to it. I also changed the location of my scrap room from the basement to an upstairs bedroom so it would be easier to make time to paper craft. We have had a busy spring also. My oldest daughter graduated from high school and my youngest has had summer basketball camp. But it seems life will get on a schedule for a bit. I am posted some projects I did this spring that I was able to get pictures of. I will also post some picture of thank you cards I made for my daughter for graduation gifts she received. Almost all products use are SU except the yellow and green card and I used CTMH paper and ribbon. Thanks for visiting and have a good evening!!

Valentine Cards

Hello everyone!!! I can’t believe how long is has been since I posted. November….Wow!! I guess life just gets away from us sometimes. Yesterday was our 19th wedding anniversary. Can’t believe it has been 19 years. I am so very luck to have Jerry as my husband and Best Friend. I thought I would post some of the Valentine cards I made this month. We made them at my last card class. Everyone loved the heart cups and I saw this morning on SU site where they are going to put them in the next catalog that will come out this summer. I stocked up on the cups my last order just in case but I’m very glad I will be able to get more when I run out. There is one card I am posting that was not made for valentines but for a baby shower. The shower had a heart them so I went with the red and pink colors. I used a CTMH stamp set on that card but all the other cards I used SU products. Oh except for the white buttons and those are some buttons I had horded in my stash. The Valentine pattern paper is in the mini occasions catalog. ;) Hope everyone has a great week. Thanks for Visiting!!!
