PaperWorks Co. Challenge Focus

Hello there ladies and gents...my project for today is for two different challenges...one is for Splitcoastampers WT challenge...this weeks challenge was to use Green...and Green I used. The nexy challenge was to use a sketch...a very simple sketch from Clean and Simple Challenge 115. I lvoe the sketch! My paper was shimmery...can you see it?

I used a vanilla base for the card followed by glorious green and then a shimmery white background. Simple! Then I added some felt flurries snowflakes and pearls...color and VOILA! Card is done! I just LOVE simple Christmas cards!

The main reason I wanted to make this card though was to show you that you CAN use just a small image from a large stamp and still look FANTASTIC! So many people are Affraid of the BIG stamps, but to me they are FUN and versatile!

PWCO. Snowglobe

Today's Sunday sketch over at the PWCO. blog is a fun one! I really enjoyed playing around with it...for my card I did the "spotlighting" technique...super fun and quick when you don't have a ton of time to color the whole image! Most of you know how to do this technique, but for those of you that don't here is the lowdown...

You'll start by stamping 2 of the same image on a piece of your choice cardstock. The you will simply punch one out with a punch where desired. The you will color the small circle image and adhere it to the coordinating slightly larger circle...clear as mud right? Just take a look at my card below!

I choose to use circle, but you can use an aray of shapes, squares, rectangles, ovals and even your nestabilities shapes...super cute huh? I love this Magical Christmas image!


Stamp: A Magical Christmas

Ink: stazon black

Paper: Pixie pink, basic black, prism white

Accessories: small felt flurries, rhinestone brads, snowflake charm, circle punches, watercolor pencils, blender pens

So, what do you think? Easy peasy right? I hope you play along with the sketch...and you get bonus points if you use the spotlighting technique!

Hugs and happy Stampin'

Athens, Greece

Hey there,

I have been a little MIA...but with a good excuse! We went to Athens for a little get away! It was absolutely AMAZING! the kids has a great time too...they love going to museums! Here is my favorite quote from my 4yo. daughter! We were walking around the new Acropolis Museum (where they don't allow pics, BOO!) and she is looking at all the amazing 4000 yo. statues and she says, "They are all naked...that is SOOOO not allowed!" hahaha that girl cracks me up! Here are a couple pics for ya! Hope you are having a great day!
The family in front of the Parthenon...got a really nice guy from Brazil to take the pic for us!
Here is a picture of the Parthenon, it is located at the Acropolis...and is Greece's most famous temple...But, did you know that people lived at the Acropolis as early as 5000 B.C.!!!
I really neat door, I love the colors and the neat design!

This is Hadrian's Arch, built by the Roman emperor himself. The inscription facing the Acropolis reads, "This is Athens, the ancient city of Theseus." and the other side reads, "This is the city of Hadrian, not of Theseus." hmmm I think someone was self indulgent.

Anywho, these are just a few of the many pics I took...I didn't get to do down to the Monastiriki like I wanted (due to rain and little children needing naps, ohh yes and a strike that blocked the road!) But I am going back at the end of October for my 10K run...so there are more pics to be seen!

Thanks for stopping by!

So I was looking through different sketches to make something yummy for you guys to look at when I stumbled across last Saturdays Inspiration Sketch over at Splitcoaststampers. I was inspired by this awesome little quilt picture…

several things inspired me…the colors and the shapes! Aren’t the colors gorgeous? The round polkadots were screaming at me! So I went to work!

Here is what I came up with!

What do you think? Isn’t the book mark just the cutest? I love making these, they are sooo awesome and sooo easy!

Stamps: #1 Bonus stamp from the Zac & Zoe Sports 2bundle
Ink: Stazon black
Paper: Prism White, Designer paper
Accessories: thin coasters, 1 3/8 circle punch, rhinestones, ribbon,
watercolor pencils, blender pens, ribbon scrap

I hope you like my little book mark! I’m sure everyone has seen these giant paper clips, but just in case you haven’t they are in the office supply aisle at WalMart and I think they cost about a dollar for 12 or so of them…I know! They make great presents for teachers and stocking stuffers for the reader in your family!

Boxed Set

Hello hello hello!

Before I start on my post I would just like to take a moment of silence to honor and respect all those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. It was a tragic day, a day that will always be in our hearts. I pray that all the families that lost loved ones will always know they are never forgotten!

And on a more pleasant note, I would like to wish my Daddy (I know I'm almost 31, but he will always be my Daddy) a very Happy Birthday!

It's been quite some time since I last posted on here, and let me just tell you it feels Ohhhh soooo good to be back! I was feeling a little in a slump, like I wanted to give up paper crafting all together and pursue something else! Sheesh What was I thinking? Paper crafting runs through my veins! It's as much a part of me as I live and breathe! Last night I made a pair of earring's (my new hobby I want to try my hand at) to give to someone who recently watched our dog for us while we were away...then I thought, hey I need to package it nicely... plus I had to created a project to showcase today, so I made this super cute box and matching 3x3 card, pretty helpful to have a batch of new supplies waiting for you when you get some too, that gets a girl in a crafting mood!

So tell me? What do you think of my little box and card? Arent the earings super cute? They are my first ones that I have ever made, but I love them...I love their simplicity and how they can go with pretty much anything! Plus it was my first time using a head pin! All in all I think it was a very successful project and I pray that the person I give it too will appreciate it!

And a little pic of the box and card all ready to be given...altough I still need to sign it!

Thanks for stopping by, and if you like the sketch I used on my card, you can check it out here at the OCC weekly sketch blog!

Stamps: Zac and Zoe Sports Bundle I
Ink: stazon black and stazon white
Paper: velum cardstock, baja breeze, prism white, junebug paper pad by basic Grey
Accessories: blender pens, watercolor pencils, paprer snips, black gingham ribbon, border punch, rectangle punch, 1/16 circle punch, scor-pal

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a wonderful stampy kinda day!

Sand Castles in the Sun!

Hello hello! Tuesday already?! Where did the weekend go?!

For todays card I have a sweet little card...it's a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square...I love these cards, because although they are smaller, they really aren't that much smaller, just a tiny bit...and square cards are soooo much fun!

My card uses one of the new RAM stamps just released this past weekend...it's called Day at the Beach. I just love that little sweety, she is just too cute! Love the pudgy little cheeks and the sweet sand castle, and since the beach is just a short walk from our house I can relate to this adorable image...we are constantly building castles! Hmmm maybe I'll make a scrapbook page with this image soon!

Anywho here is a list of supplies I've used on this card...I hope you like it!
