Dino Roar

Howdy!  Thanks for stopping in today!  Today's share is another card with a stamp set that I haven't used much.  Dino-Roar.  What a great set for little boys that love dinosaurs!  It is a simple card, and I'm not so sure whether I like it or not, but here it is:

Lots of coloring with Stampin' Write markers on this one.  Also some sponging.  I'm not sure of all
the colors used, lots of dino-type colors, lol, so I'm just gonna leave this a very quick post.

Come back again soon!    Comments are appreciated.

Hi again,  I'm back to share another card I made around Valentines Day.  I bought the Stamp Set Furry Folk, well, cuz it had furry little critters on it, and an Owl, so it was most definitely a must have for me.  Only I hadn't used it at all, sadly.  So I  decided it would make a cute little Valentines Day, or just an I Love You card.  I also made this one a 3D stand up card with a window. I know there's a name for it, but honestly, I am drawing a blank. Happens alot. Let's blame it on age, shall we?   Here you go:

Isn't this just the cutest little card?  I love making this type of card, and as usual, used lots of different Stampin' Up! products on it.  Cardstocks are Whisper White, Real Red, Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake.  Inks are Bashful Blue, Real Red and Garden Green. The 2.5" Circle and Jewelry Tag Punch, Real Red 1/8 ribbon. Adorning Accents Embossing Folder. Stampin' Dimensionals,

Furry Fold is retiring May 30th, so if you want it, don't wait too long.

Have a great Friday. Thanks for stopping by.

Bookmark Card

Hello all, and happy Wednesday!  Today I want to share a card with a little gift attached in the way of a bookmark.  This was a case from our awesome Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Only Magazine called Stampin' Success.  So many great ideas and samples for us to learn from and CASE.

I used so many SU products in this card, but I love it, and I love to read so it's perfect for me.  Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso Cardstocks. Early Espresso and Calypso Coral Inks The Boho Blossom, Curly Label, Eyelet Border and Modern Label punches.  Linen Thread, 1/8 Early Espresso and Early Espresso Polka Dotted Ribbons.  The Striped Embossing Folder with my trusty Big Shot, The awesome Simply Scored, the Crop o Dile and the Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker.  Also, just had to add a Pearl.  Stamp Sets used are BroadSheet Alphabet, Best Friends Forever, My Friend, and Fine Flourish.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today.  If you have some time, read a book!  It's a wonderful way to expand your mind.

Have a great day,

Card Box

Hi All, and Happy Sunday!  Hope your weekend is going well.  I promised to show you a project I've been
working on and today's the day.  A friend of mine was at a training at her work and they had lunch brought in
for everyone.  They were in these cool little boxes, just the right size for a card box.  She brought one to me
and here's what I did with it.

I used the Everyday Elegance DSP that was free during Sale-A-Bration, then the matching cardstocks in Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla for the flowers and butterfly.
I used the Flower Fest Die for the biggest Flower, the Framelits for the sentiment,and of course my trusty Big Shot. I also used the Scallop Circle for the Pool Party flower and the 5 Petal Punch (not the pointy one, lol, name of punch is escaping me at the moment)  The small ones on the sentiment are using the Boho Blossom Punch..  I also died some of my Pear |Pizazz Seam Binding Ribbon Lucky Limeade for the Bow.  There are some Pearls on the Butterfly. The texture on the butterfly is made with the Spiderweb embossing folder.  I also added some card index cards to the inside, but once again I can't get another picture to load, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Heehee.

Well thanks for stopping by again today.  Will be back on Tuesday with another post.  Have a great day!

Stamp Room part 2

Hi again.  I won't promise to post everyday, but just thought I would drop in with another picture of my stamp room.  Tomorrow I will show you the project I've been working on.  Finished it last night, so it's ready to photograph.

Ok, so here is my how I store my paper.  It is in magazine holders from IKEA.  I love it because I can tell
at a glance what I have.  Lots of little boxes for storage. The brown bookcase you see at bottom right holds
my current wood mount stamp sets.  So it is a mess right now, but it is definitely getting there.  More later.  Have a great weekend.

I'm Back......Really

I know I've said it before, but really, I'm back.

The VC Rocks! season is officially open, and what a better reason to start back on my poor neglected blog. For those of you who don't know what VC Rocks! is, it is a celebration of Stampin' UP!, a "virtual convention". It runs through the summer, has a high volume of emails, and the most wonderful group of women ever. We have swaps, loads of them, games, challenges, contests, classes, and all manner of fun. Registration for new members opens on May 1, 2012. Please join us, you will be glad you did!

Today I am gonna share a bit of my new stamping space, that I have been working on for several months. Not quite finished yet, probably never will be, but here goes.

This is my cutting station. Ikea rods for my punches, Gutter for some of my ribbon.

Ok, since I can't seem to get another picture to load on this post, I will show you another area next time, plus a project I have been working on today.

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.
