One More Time If You Please

Hi again, after making up some cards for my Wednesday card group I had some pieces left over so I decided to make a card with the pieces. Nothing fancy and I am sure you have seen enough of Fresh Vintage samples but it really is the greatest Sale-a-bration stamp in my books anyway.

I colored the image with the SU markers, stamped onto Whisper White and then used the Designer Frame to emboss the image. I have a silver of Riding Hood Red under that and finally layered with Whisper White that I cut out with one of my Scalloped border dies.

The larger piece of Riding Hood Red was embossed with the Elegant Bouquet folder then I sponged some Riding Hood Red on it giving kind of a suede look to the piece. Then I cut the Dotted Ribbon Border  piece in half and adhered it to each end of the DSP.  Thanks for stopping by.

First Valentine for 2012

Hi Stampers,

I sure do not like how my Blogger is working these days, things seem so messed up some how, maybe its me. LOL

I need to come up with two Valentine/Something Else cards for my ladies on Wednesday, one wants Valentines and one wants the same card as the others but not Valentines. Hummmm

 So this is what I have come up with so far. I don't think it screams Valentines but it could be or could just be for someones special day.

What do you think, will it pass for both? See you next time and thanks for stopping bye to look.

Friends Never Fade

Hi Stampers:

My Blogger has been not working properly so hence the delay in my posts.

My card today uses one of the stamps from Friends Never Fade. I used SU markers to color the stamp. The colors I used were Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke. I wanted to try to come as close as I could to the DSP in Paisley Petals.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the design on the first layer. I embossed  the flower image using one of the Designer Frames. Then I decided I liked this so much I did another one using a different layout.

I had gotten a little smudge on the inside so this is what I came up with to fix it. LOL

 When I stamped the image part of it was missing where the DSP and the card base met, but I was able to color it in with the markers. Thanks goodness!

Fresh Vintage

Hi Everyone:

Finally got all my stuff put away from my weekend away. I took too much next time I will have to try to plan better. How do you guys figure out what to take?

My card today is a pretty simple card. It only uses two inks and one was just for sponging purposes.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the branches and made the curly sprigs by wrapping a thin piece of card stock around a small screw driver. I added some small pearls on the branches but you may not be able to see them.

I can see myself using this stamp set alot I love how it can be used in different directions, one color or you could color it with markers to get a complete different look.

You Are Loved

Hi Everyone:

I had a great time at my scrapbook retreat. I always do cards but most do scrapbooking or some of both. I always enjoy this time as there are no phones ringing and when we look outside we look out at natures beauty and sometimes a few deer.

I used all new materials from the new Occasions Mini except for the first layer which was Riding Hood Red. I love the new Saleabration Designer Series Paper. It is very vintagey if that is a word. LOL I love the new Dollie die although you do have to have some patience poking out all the little pieces I used a  pencil and rolled it around and many feel out very easily.

Thanks for stopping bye and for all the kind comments on my last post. I can not believe how much better I feel not caring all that emotional baggage.
