my challenge. . .

I needed a little self-motivation, and focus when I was sitting down to create this card. So here's what I challenged myself with:
one color of cardstock
two colors of ink
one type of embellishment

And this is what I created! I used the stamp set, Priceless Love, Holiday Red and Black ink, and red Sparkles. I cut out the X's and O's, and adhered them with foam tape, and used the border stamps to create a fun little design. I really like this stamp set, and although it makes terrific Valentine's, you can use it for so much more too!!

Hopefully by now, you are done with your Christmas cards, and ready for the big day on Saturday!!! And if you are. . . .kudos to you - now get started on your Valentines!!! ;) (tee hee!)

yummy cupcakes!

Hey there cupcake! This card was created with the stamp set, Cupcake Sprinkles, paired with Twitterpated paper I also used the sweet little frame stamp (one of my new favorites!) from the set, Priceless Love. I added some Chocolate ribbon, plus a piece of string and a button that I found in my stash!

Are you ready for Christmas!? We have just about all our shopping done for the boys, but now I need to get WRAPPING!!!!!! I am off to school today, to help the Kindergartners make gingerbread houses! It will be a flurry of sugar and candy - and CHAOS!!!!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

Wings Level 1 Kit - Make a bunch of cards!

One of our new products for January is the new Wings set. It is available as a Workshop on the Go kit, Level 1 Scrapbooking kit (with pre-printed pages, paper, cardstock, and My Stickease), a paper pack (with patterned papers and matching cardstock), and My Stickease.

For the cards pictured below I used the Level 1 kit, Dreams Come True stamp set, and some various embellishments.

By using the pre-printed pages as the card base for most of your cards, you can really create a bunch of cards. I still have lots of supplies from the Level 1 kit even after making 12 cards!

You can order any of the Wings products and the stamp set beginning January 1. Make sure you check out the January special featuring the Wings WOTG kit!

many many many thanks!

HAPPY DECEMBER!!!! (Can someone tell me where 2010 went to????) :)

I love to combine two different stamp sets to create some new unexpected cards! I used the August Word Puzzle set, along with the sentiment from Many Thanks.

To create the globe, I stamped the image in black onto a white cardstock block. Then I stamped it in Pear ink, on Sky cardstock, cut out just the globe and adhered it to the image. I sanded all the edges of my layers, and added a few little jewels at the end, for some added pizazz. Lots of layers doesn't mean it has to be a busy cluttered card. It's still pretty clean and simple, thanks to the double layer of white.

We are off to SeaWorld for the weekend, along with my parents, to celebrate Mr. B's 6th birthday! I'll share some pictures next week! Have a great weekend!
