Bird Punch

Holy cow, can you believe that I'm posting a new card? I can't! I know it has been ages since I posted anything. I really haven't been too motivated. I don't know what is wrong with me. Still not really feeling any mojo but I thought I better update my blog and start posting again. Hopefully this will inspire me to start creating and posting! This is a card that I'm demonstrating at my stamp club meeting tonight. I totally cased right out of the new SU catty. I hope you enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by.

Color Renovation!

Check out the new color collections for SU! I'm so excited that my favorite old colors are coming back plus some great new ones. Yes, I'm glad to see some of the retiring colors to go but I really haven't used most of them anyway. I love that SU has been watching the trends for the past several years to come out with these fabulous colors.

And the retiring list....

karen's challenge

Yippee. I can play in Karen's challenge this week. I really need to make a card for Karl's basketball coach but this was more fun! I'll get the coach card after the kids go to bed! Whoa, I can't believe that is march already. What happened to February? I only got one post up. I'm such a slacker these days. I did have a bunch of stamping workshops tho. If that is any excuse. I guess I should have posted those projects. Maybe next time. I had fun with Karen's challenge today. Can you see where my mind is? I want to be laying on a beach with one of these drinks!! I think I had some major spring fever today. It was almost 60 here is Colorado! Don't get me wrong, we will get our fair share of more snow before spring and summer hit! You gotta love Colorado weather. Well back to my card. I used one of my fav sets, cheers! It is so fun. The words came from Stamping Bella. Sorry for the crappy photo, the words say "Bottom's Up". I used yoyo yellow, only orange and green galore CS. I used a bunch of markers. I painted the glasses with some crystal effects for the shiny, glass look. I sprinkled some glitter on the umbrella b/c you always need some glitter! I was soooo excited that I actually had a real bow turn out the right way!! It's the little things that make my day! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

addy tude birthday

Here is one of my new bella stamps that I got. I've had them for a while, I just kinda forgot about them. I thought that I pull out this stamp for my friend's birthday. I hope she likes her. I thought it was fun. I pulled out my SU markers and some old riding hood red paper for the base. Of course anytime that I can use my nestabilities I jump at the chance. Sorry for the quick posts but got lots going on. I just happy that I could get a post! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

loving the vintage style

I have discovered that I love the vintage look. At leadership, Shelli showed us so many fabulous vintage looks I thought I'd give it a try. I love it!!! I really love that I'm using a free stamp set, Vintage Vogue. One of the perks of being a demonstrator! This is a card that I am demonstrating tonight at my stamp club. I hope the ladies love it as much as I do. I love when I stumble on a card that I adore. I used the Vintage Vogue set and coordinating wheel (can't remember the name-just pulled it out the box today!), soft suede, rich razzleberry, rose red, naturals ivory and pretty in pink paper. I used rich razzleberry, soft suede and cclose to cocoa ink. For the flowers, I punched out 3 sizes of the circles and the crinkled up and spritzed with water and kinda just shaped into the current shape. You like my directions for that, real technical huh! The topper is another fun idea that I learned at leadership, mix some of the champagne simmer paint in with hand sanitizer and spritz on card. It gives a great look! I wished that it would show up better on the picture, just imagine a shimmery card.
On a side note, I never could get a card or picture loaded from my iphone. One day!
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy!

I'm trying out a cool, new blogging! This is so awesome. I just wish my picture size wasn't so large. I can't seem to text any pictures yet. I'll keep trying.
