Another She's A Lady

This card is done the same as the other one, just using different pencils and paper. I don't know what one I like the best. I just love this stamp set. And this stamp set comes with a poodle, plus shopping bags and a purse. So I want to do the poodle with this lady next.

She's A Lady

Don't you just love this Lady....

I think she's pretty and so elegant looking.
She is colored with pencils and blended with OMS. The gold trim done with a gel pen. I layered the image on the Label 4 Nestie. The background mat was done with an Embossing Folder called Vines. The paper is from my stash. I added a band of white and gold ribbon and added pearls on the side.
Stamp: There She Goes Rubber Stamps
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pearls and EK Embossing Folder
Coloring: Prisma Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits.

With Sympathy

I love how this card turned out. So elegant looking.
I used Sage Shadow Ink from Stampin Up.
And I don't remember the name of the Designer Paper, but it is really shimmery.
And the ribbon is from my stash, and it is shimmery also. So it perfectly matches the Designer Paper with that shimmery look.
The stamps are from Great Impressions.
Thank You for visiting my blog and I hope you are enjoying my cards and that they may give you inspiration in some way.

Life's Just Beachy

I needed a BEACH card for the club that I belong to, so I created this one. Not sure I like it a whole lot. I tried so many sea shell stamps, water stamps, flip flops on the sand and nothing would work for me. I just had a terrible time with this theme. This card actually has play sand on it and real sea shells that I picked up on the beach in Florida. And the tag is popped up in the middle so it looked wavy. Thank Goodness it is done with.
At least I won't have to worry about another beach card until next summer. Anyway my card is done.
Stamps: Great Impressions
Paper: My stash
Embellishments: Label 4 Nestie and Brads

Little Fairies

I sure didn't realize it has been this long since I posted something. I suppose I would have to say that I have been busy lately.
This card was using the new Stamp of the Month from Great Impressions, it is called Wildflowers and Fairies. I stamped the Fairies on top of the Wildflower background. The card needed something else, just to plain for me, so I added the brown ribbon and a yellow bow to the middle of the card. The papers are from my stash. I like the yellow and green together. I used Versafine Brown ink for stamping the fairies and Olive Pastel Color Box ink for the background.

Season's Greetings

Another quick and easy card. This is a cute card also. The stamp set is A Flower for All Seasons. I think that is the name of it. Colored with markers. I love the scallop circles. I put a white dot on all the scallops. Added the red snowflake ribbon for color. Stamped the Season's Greetings and used the lacey scallop border punch on the bottom of the card and added the stripes on the inside bottom of the card. *

Stamps: Stampin Up Retired (A Flower for All Seasons) and Endless Creations
Paper: My stash
Ink and Markers: Versafine Black Ink, Tombow Markers and White Gel Pen
Punches: Stampin' Up Scallop Border and Marvy Scallop Circles

Merry Christmas Poinsettia

This card is a little on the elegant side I think. I seen this poinsettia stamp at a craft store for a dollar and I thought I could do something with it and for only a dollar if I didn't do something, I wouldn't be out much. Well, let me tell you everyone loved it and I had to go and purchase 8 more of them because they all wanted one. So it must have been a pretty card to some of them.
I stamped the poinsettia in (Stampin Up's) Real Red Ink and clear embossed and heat set it. And this poinsettia had 3 images to make one poinsettia, there is 3 layers to the poinsettia. The center I used Yellow Stickler's. And the (Martha Stewart) branch punch for the greenery on the sides of the poinsettia. It is glued on a White Oval (Marvy Large Oval Punch). I punched the holes in the oval to help take away the plan look. Added some Gold Ribbon for the elegant touch. I had some gold stickers that said Merry Christmas, and they worked for me. I didn't want to deal with trying to make the Merry Christmas in white with embossing and heat setting.
Hope you like this card as much as everyone else did.

Snow Pals

This card is another one of my favorites. More coloring to do, but still quite easy. I adore the snow people, they are so cute. And love the tall pine tree. I colored the branches green and added red dots using a gel pen. All the stamps are from Great Impressions. Tombow Markers were used. And silver brads to add some bling to the card.

Red Christmas Card

Just a few more Christmas Cards in July to add from my workshop. I can't believe it is taking me this long to get all the Christmas Cards on this blog. I guess just a lot of things going on this summer and no time to get it all done.

I liked this card the most because it is so colorful. And quite easy to make. I stamped the image with versafine black and then embossed the stamped image with clear embossing powder. There was only Red and Green Tombow Markers used, and the gold ribbon. How easy is that? The stamp is from Magenta. I purchased the stamp last year and used it for my personal Christmas Cards. I thought it would make a pretty card for my workshop. And everyone loved it.
