Mid-Month Valentine

Hello Everybody!

I am so excited to show you my Valentine Day's card for our Mid-month reminder with Creative with Stamps!  Be sure when you link up to use our cool graphic:


This card was made using the Heart Throb kit from Queen and Company.  I love this sweet heart die and foam.  The kit has awesome papers-but I chose a different way here.  I embossed white cardstock with a candy hearts embossing folder.

Those are cupid sequins in the heart!  And some white pearl ball-things.  I also used a tim holtz embossing tool that allowed the oval on the bottom not to be embossed so I could stamp the sentiment there.  


Did you have a Valentine you haven't linked up yet or if your starting next year's supply-its not too late to join our challenge.  It goes until the end of the month.  Thank you for stopping by!

Until next time my friends...watch out for cupid! :)

Steampunk Valentine

Hello Everybody!

I am so excited to show you the card I made using the Queen and Company Heart Throb kit with a Steampunk Flair!

First here is my card:

Here is another picture of it.


Here are the products that I used to create it:


Plus I used Q and C's heart die and a heart foam.

For the background I used the foil cardstock.  But it was too shiny-so I inked it up with black distress paint.

I also inked up the heart foam for the shaker part.  I used the black distress paint for that as well.


I realized I had to do the inside too! :)  


For the heart shaker I used the foil cardstock.  I embossed the inside with gears and used the preserves and black distress inks.  I used the black distress ink for the heart outline as well.


Then I filled it with all of those wonderful things-microbeads and diamonds and a few sequins.  But there are 3 silver little gears in there also.  They came from this earring that I bought at a Steampunk show back in January.


I'm saving the other 2 gears. :)

Here is another picture of the heart.  


For the sentiment I used black and white cardstock.  I cut it out on the Silhouette and then made the background from there also.  I used the Ken Olivers liquid metals silver to make the sentiment sparkly.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Heart Shaker Card

Hello Everybody!

So I got the new heart throb kit from Queen and Company.  It's awesome!  I love all of the little things to go inside the shaker heart.

Everything on my card is from the kit except the micro beads in the heart and the white sequins and grey heart sequins.  The sequins are from the sequin bottles of Q&Co.  


I also added Q&Co. pink diamonds.  



I am entering this card into the House of Cards Challenge: Love theme and colors.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...love is in the air! :)

Lovely Birds

Hello Everybody!

It's February 1st!  I know you know.  LOL!  How are those resolutions going?  Hopefully you are sticking to them!

I didn't really make any resolutions per se-because by now things would have returned back to normal.  So I decided to skip the trying step.  LOL :)

So for February at Creative with Stamps-we are all about Valentine's Day!  So be sure you link up your cards!

Here is my card:


I used spun sugar and evergreen bough Distress Inks and a The Crafters Worshop stencil for the background.  

The Crazy Birds and their accessories!  I cannot believe how much I love these sets-and the crazy talk set too.  I used gelatos for the birds and hats and the box of candy.  The hearts on the background are from their accessory set and it is stamped with DI picked raspberry.

I am so excited to make more bird cards.  Maybe that is my resolution-more cards with these guys. :)

Be sure that when you link your Valentines Day card that you include our graphic:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...more Birds!

Life is Good Layout

Hello Everybody!

With just a couple of days left in January, I decided I had to participate in Stick It Down's single page challenge.  All of the sketches are awesome-but I was really inspired by the single page sketch and all of the DT's examples.

So here is my layout:


Here is what I used: black and white cardstock, Heidi Swapp word stickers, decorative from Paper Studio (hobby lobby), and star stickers with gold foil.  

Let me tell you about those stars.  A million years ago they came out with a foil pen.  And foils that you just put over where ever the pen had written.  For me the pen didn't work great.  My sweet parents bought me a kit of some sort.  I remember I had to have it!  So it came with metallic frames and the pen and foils.  But it also came with stickers-which I didn't realize until I was looking through my metallic stuff.  And thankfully right next to the stickers was the foils.  Press onto the stickers and then you're done.  That's it! :)

Here is the sketch from Stick It Down:


Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...keep craftin'! :)

Mid-Month Inspiration

Hello Everybody!

We are halfway through January already!  It's time to show our mid-month inspiration for Creative with Stamps.  Be sure to stop by there to see all of my teammates awesome cards and to see the prizes!

Here is the inspiration photo.  You can use the picture or the colors.


Here is the card I made.  I really liked the red-so I used Rose Red cardstock from Stampin Up.


I used a Tim Holtz thinlit for the cool design and silver sequin stars (inspired by the grey in the picture).  And I used black embossing powder with an old Stampin Up stamp.

If you haven't linked up-we hope that you do!  Be sure to include our graphic:


Until next time my friends...stay warm! :)

Happy Birthday Set

Hello Everybody!

I'm so excited to share these 3 cards.  I help make cards for my son's school.  The PTO gives home made cards to the teachers for their Birthdays and for Thank Yous.  How cool is that!  So I contribute cards when I can.

You may be familiar with this technique.  It's a lot of fun.  But I stumbled upon it from this pin.  And so here is the tutorial.  And so I used 2 pieces of copy paper and went across the card panel.  I used two distress colors from ranger and then stamped with the 3 stamps.  Everything is from Tim Holtz.  The sentiments are from Crazy Talk.  I love the casualness of the font.




I am so excited to make different versions of these.  I know it's masking-but I hadn't masking that way.  There are so many possibilities!

So I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
