Ok, have a wonderful day now!
Sunday, August 30, 2009
Today's little card is one that I found while I was re-organizing and putting my stamping area back together. So I thought I would put it to use vs putting it in a pile somewhere and it worked just heavenly for this little pixie Greta. The paper is Bo Bunny- some left over from another project that I wanted to sue up- some SU grosgrain and the paper clip is from Making Memories I do believe. I love to make these cards and send them to my friends and staff: it is like a card and gift all in one don't you think? I love paperclips so this is a good one for me.
Ok, now everyone off to do some fabulous crafting and enjoy your Sunday! Don't forget that Kelly has free shipping on orders over $50 at KLSNS through tomorrow!

This card is stamped with memento so I can use the copics without any trouble, and for those that frequent me, know I use neenah paper as well. The paper is some from Basic Grey June Bug pad again. This is a wonderfully bright and cheerful paper pack. I then used one of the large SU eyelets to thread that beautiful satin ribbon through- talk about a nice feeling. The flower is a prima that I took the little polka dot circle that I punched out the eyelet hole with and used a epoxy sticker over it and stuck in the middle of my prima. The next card I do I am going to put something in that little wheelbarrow.
Tata for now! Heidi

Today's card is one that I made to stock up on my basic cards and I wanted to keep it simple and quick. I pulled out my Penny Black Enjoy Life Stamp set that I got from Julie over at ABC Toys and Crafts and stamped it all in black and then left it. I took the spellbinder small label and die cut it and then I just squared it off around the outside to make the frame. I thought the tree would do well sitting back so I lifted the frame with some 3D foam. Then I added a little border punch and I tell you, Julie has tons of the new Martha Stewart ones over there! Now I have another card in my box!
I also wanted to let you know what is going on over at ABC.............

But I pulled out one of my older Tilda images this week. You know you build up all those new Magnolia's (or whatever your vice is) and then you don't use the older ones- I love this one. So I am submitting this one for the Friday Sketcher Challenge. The image is Magnolia Spring Collection Tilda with bird. which you can still get over at 7kids! I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah paper and colored her with my copics to match the Basic Grey Lime Rickey. For the flower I punched out a piece of the paper with my circle punch and covered with epoxy sticker. I do love this sketch and will use it again!
Thanks for stopping in! Heidi

Okay and is that paper yummy or what!? It is of course...... basic grey Porcelain pack. It goes so well with SU pink piroquet and mellow moss. The ribbon is mellow moss grosgrain and then some pink from one of the SU designer packs but I don't have the package any longer but is it sweet and rippled. I would also like to say thank you to Claudia as I had seen this sketch on her blog and had to give it a try!
I know I am off schedule a bit this week, hope to get back on track this next week. Today is my day to spend with Claudia: we will stamp, gab, color, gab, and probably giggle too! That is it for today ladies!

This set is Fishy Fun and I got it from Julie at ABC Toys and Crafts. It is one of the new releases that we featured last week and are currently in stock right now! The sentiment is one that I made up and added to the card. The fish are highlighted by using the circle scallop and then punching another circle inside and raised with foam.
I am also submitting this one for the Stamp Something challenge b/c on our vacation this summer my son and father in law spent all their time fishing! I didn't see anything this cute come out of the water though! LOL!
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

She is stamped with memento ink on neenah cardstock and then colored with my copic markers. The DSP is Basic Grey June Bug that I also got from Kelly over at KLSNS. I have gotten so bad, and I am sure that many of you are like me, but I am buying ALL the Basic Grey pads because they are so yummy. I don't think that I would even have to see them- I would just order them. I was at Hobby Lobby the other day and they had a Holiday Sampler and the papers were so gorgeous. Anyone see it yet?
Well I am off to get some work done- you all have a fabulous Thursday!

This project is kind of an "off spring" of the project I did earlier this week. I wanted to do something more than a card and I am behind on scrapbooking and thought this little album would be perfect for on the coffee table or any display. It will hold 3 nice size pictures in the middle and then you can add some journaling on the tag that I have that fits into the pocket on the right- plus you could add a photo above it. I also made that a pocket behind Edwin as well.
The image of course is Chasing Edwin from the Catching Butterflies Magnolia Collection and these stamps are on sale over at KLSNS right now for up to 35% off. This is a great way to build up your collection AND Kelly has a special on shipping as well. I hope you'll take advantage of it!
This is a picture of the outside of the album- it can be closed and stringed shut for safe keeping or travel.
I thought I would also show you some close up of the other pages that I made. I did keep them simple and used Basic Gray Two Sccops paper on them. The little birdie is also a magnolia stamp that someone stamped for me- and I thought it would fit the theme.
Basics for making the album:

Today is my day to show you one of the brand spankin' new stamps that has just been released by My Cute Stamps. This set is called Fishy Fun Crab Set and I had a few ideas in my mind when I got this set from Julie and played and played with it- and all I know is that I had to use color, it was so tropical that I couldn't do anyting but........... don't you agree?
This is a close up of one of the cards, I colored them with my copic markers and was able to match them all pretty closely with the DSP which is a Cosmo Cricket one! So yummy! As you can tell from this photo all the little cards which are 3.5x3.5 will fit into the pizza box that I also made to go with this set.
So, where can you get these sweet stamps? Well you can go on over to ABC Toys and Crafts and Julie has all then new releases NOW.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was packed: a golf outing on Saturday and then scraping, sanding and priming the front porch to have a fresh coat of paint! Lets just say I slept well this weekend and did not do what I was anticipating doing, which was to go to the Novi Rubberstamp show on Sunday! But oh well- the porch looks splendid.
Today's card is made with the OH SO CUTE little Tilda in her cherry dress. This has to be one of my favorites- for sure! I stamped her with tuxedo black ink from memento on solar white Nassau cardstock and then colored with mostly my green and red copic markers. The circle in the back was made with my inverted scallop circle nestability- is this shape not the coolest!? I think that she will find her way to a special friends home soon!
Also, you are going to want to check out all the new items that Tab over at 7kids: either in the store or on pre-order. Just to name a few:
* New flower soft and accessories by flower soft: pre-printed cards and taglets (pre-order

So now I have decided quite possibly that I need to do about 8 of these for holiday gifts. I am making many of my gifts and this will be the perfect box to hold them. I can't imagine someone wouldn't love getting it.

Today's card I had to post is just adorable...... well I think. I used a Penny Black Stamp called Bubbly that I got from ABC Toys and Crafts. What I like about this set, and you will see if you look at it, is that it give you alot of different stamps and can be quite versatile. You purchase ones set and you can create cards for a variety of occasions. This one I chose to use as a Congrats kind of card....... The papers are bright and cheerful and who wouldn't want to get mail from those little critters!
So stop on over and check out all the Martha Stewart Punches that Julie has in stock now. I am amazed at the variety and I am guessing we won't be seeing all of these in the stores. Plus if your store is like mine, they get 3 and that is it, so you better be there the day the arrive! OR, better yet just order them from Julie! Plus Julie is having a sale of 10% a lot of her merchandise.
Thanks for stopping by today!
