Birthday Wishes Truck...

Okay this is definately not my best card ~ I was playing around the the "Loads of Love" stamp set by Stampin' Up to make a masculine card using the truck. I tried to emboss the rims, fender, and bumper using silver embossing powder but it is hard to see. All the supplies are from Stampin' Up ~ I need to work on this one a bit more and then will repost.

"LOVE" Cards...

I just love making easel cards....this was my first one!! When flat this one measures 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 square.
Recipe: (all Stampin' Up!)
~ real red card stock
~ certainly celery designer series paper
~whisper white card stock
~Stazon On Black in (so I could color without the lines going blurry)
~scallop and circle punches
~ stamp set: Love you Much
~ stampin' dimensionals are critical in "popping up" the scallop circle to catch the easel top
Enjoy, Cheers, E

Another fun lovey card. This one is 6" x 3" in size....I just wanted a different size (of course wasn't thinking about the envelope but it will fit in a business envelope).
Recipe: (all Stampin' Up!)
~ basic grey cardstock base
~ real red cardstock
~ whisper white cardstock
~ heart punch (no scissors for this one)
~ white embossing powder and versamark to make it stick
~ real red polka dot ribbon
Thanks for looking, Cheers E

Whimsical Get Well Soon...

Double Stamp Sunflower...

Chocolate Bunny...

This adorable Easter card was made and sent to me by my good friend and upline Jennifer. I love the easel card and the chocoloate bunny looks so realistic ~ SO cute. All supplies are Stampin' Up and I know that the brown is called Chocolate Chip - how appropriate for the bunny!! Cheers, Erin.

Birthday Cupcakes...

Cheers to You - 2 Versions...

Well, I broke down and bought a Cricut - probably one of the best purchases ever!! I will not be one of those people that you read about that waited 6 months to take it out of the box and try it because they were scared of it!! I have made several things already, with this teddy bear paper piecing being one of the first. Love it!! I made this for a friend of my daughter's birthday. This was fun, lots of fun, and so cute!!

Do you LOVE Mickey Mouse?

Well my Aunt just loves Mickey Mouse and seeing as her birthday is coming I thought that I would make her a themed card.

Lisa and I along with our friend Kim had a fabulous day yesterday puttering around oohing and aawing at different supplies on our crafting research trip to Kelowna ~ oh I must put a shout out to my husband Jeremy who very patiently drove us and shopped with us, held items for us, etc. ~ anyways, one of the items I bought was this very cute Mickey Mouse themed paper in a 12 x 12 sheet. Of course the minute we got back that was my focus was to make this card !! I ended up adding the bow to make sure the card would stand up properly as with the circle bottom it kept wanting to roll over.


~ Creative Memories circle cutters for the different size circles

~basic black card stock by Stampin' Up!

~ white card stock by Stampin' Up!
~ Mickey Mouse designer paper by Creating Keepsakes

Another Class....Mini Brag Book

This is our Class #2 Sample!! A Mini Brag Book!! It contains 5 clear envelopes that you can use to display 10 photos, or 5 photos and 5 journaling pages, or whatever you would like to display!!


All Stampin' Up!!

What a great gift idea for a relative that lives far away!! Or you can use it as a mini scrapbook for yourself, perhaps from a special occasion or trip. The ideas are endless. The first image I made for my late grandmother who had limited space in the extended care unit she was living in. She loved have something small and light that her hands could easily look through.

Watch for upcoming dates for the next class.
