Stamping Boutique to create this card. I pulled a couple of the images into photoshop to color...matted the finished image on green and red paper. The "inchies" on the side of the card were created using some dp from Hobby Lobby. The card base was created using the Dots embossing folder from Sizzix. Well today, I am off to visit my friend Stef (aka glitterbabe)! We will be talking and working on the computer, talking and eating....talking and talking....LOL....MAYBE get some crafting done! Have a great day today...I will be out to catch up on my visiting everyone later on today. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!

Happy Hump Day! Today's card is a little out of the ordinary for xmas...purple is not a typical xmas color but I thought maybe with the gold I could make it look Christmasy. :) And my stamp...I really struggled with coloring it cause of the solid area...if I used red ink...the whole Santa would have been in red...didn't really want that so I thought what about just leaving it black and white? So that is what I did and added some Diamond Stickles to Santa's suit to give the card some bling and a Stardust GellyRoll gold glitter pen was used on the stars to brighten them up. I used a Martha S punch on my center layer and stamped the snowflakes using a Studio g stamp I had purchased from JoAnn Fabrics last winter. Of course, you know me...I HAD to add some embossing...I used the Sizzix Dots embossing folder. This was a fun card to make and I may have gotten carried away on my layers but I do like how it turned out. Well off to clean my house for Thanksgiving! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving...I know I am very thankful for my blogging friends...bless you for stopping by!

Oh my oh my!!! I am addicted to Shy Bears!!!! Is this the cutest image you ever saw??? And I just loved coloring it and creating my card. The Shy Bears are Squigglefly digi images and I am OVER my fear of working with them. Love them. Ok...so here is how I made the card after coloring the image with Copics...wanted to add a little bling to the card so I added some clear glitter using those Sakura Strardust pens that I love. I embossed the card using the Sizzix Flowers embossing folder. I tapped an oval picture frame mat on the outside of the embossing folder prior to embossing so the embossing would only appear around my image and not on it....how cool is that? The sentiment is computer generated using the Adorable font...and then I matted the image on a piece of SU paper that had been punched at the bottom using MS Lace Heart punch. I used some of the leftover hearts from the punch to embellish the bottom of the card and then rounded my corners. I was going to add ribbon to the card but decided to leave it alone...what do you think? Ribbon or no ribbon? Well thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me some love. Hope your day is a great one...I will be by to see you.

Good morning! Well here is the first snowman card created with those 12 lovely snowmen from the Stamping Boutique. Isn't this just a darling image??? Course I have a weakness for snowmen. I created my sentiment along a path in Photoshop and colored the image with copics. Used a few Sakura GellyRoll Stardust pens to add some bling to the rings and used Diamond Stickles on the snowman for accent. The ribbon and paper the image was matted on was sent to me by Tracey...thanks tons Tracey! The card base is embossed with the Snowflakes Sizzix embossing folder and accented with the Clear Stardust pen. Well off to Galena today with my friend from work...hope you all have a wonderful day today and thanks so much for stopping to see me again.
