Card Time!

I found some time to make a couple of cards. I copied this off of the Stampin' Up websites and added my own touch. I used the same layout for both cards I hope you like them.

The one on the website was just the marina mist, whisper white and chocolate chip. I thought it needed a little splash of color so I added the pink flower with the pearl in the center.

This one I wanted to use a little more color on so I used my color coach to suggest the colors to match.

With Easter coming up I'm going to be a busy girl, I will be baking and we have someone coming out tomorrow to do an install for our satellite. Friday I will be finishing the cakes and we have a new bed being delivered. Also in these two days I want to put the finishing touches on a scrapbook my aunt wanted me to make for her. So I may not be posting until after Easter.

I hope everyone has a Happy Easter!

Naptime Craft Time

When I was doing my nap time crafting, I took some pictures of some cards I did a couple of days ago. I also did the hand sanitizer covers that I saw on They are so cute and easy too. I may tweak the measurements a little. They are so cute, I can't wait to make more.
I had a star cut out already in my scrap box but it was red and I wanted it to match the paper so I used alcohol ink (this time I made sure the lid was on tight) to darken the color.

The hand sanitizer cover!

This is the tulip card for Easter that I used my new owl punch.

This is a sneak peek of the new punches that they are offering in the summer catalog. I'm so excited for this catalog there are some very cute things in it can't wait to show you more. Can you tell I'm turning into a punch girl.

This is the 4 frames and paper from the Spring is Blossoming promotion Stampin' Up is currently running til April 30th.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Quilted Hearts

Sorry it has taken me a couple of day to post the picture. This is one of the cards I did before my little mess. I used the heart from the owl punch and used the quilt technique I've been wanting to do. I love how it came out. I think I will use bigger hearts the next time..I hope you enjoy!
We had about 2 inches of snow on the grown this morning but it is melting pretty quick.

I hope you have a great day!

Lesson Learned

Well had a great time last night creating but it was cut short by a little mess. I opened my container that I store my alcohol ink and lets just say I had purple fingers now after many, many, many washes they are starting to look a little more smurf like. So did I learn anything....Always make sure your lids to your inks are on tight! I will post my pictures of what I did in a bit...I tried a technique I've been wanting to do for a while. Well I hope it is sunny and warm where ever you are. They say this rain will change to snow tonight....blah! I'm so ready for spring!
Have a great day!

While waiting for UPS

While waiting for the UPS man to show up with my Stampin' Up! goodies, I worked on a little purse from Forever Young Cartridges for my niece.

This is the front

This is the back she LOVES lady bugs and googly eyes.

I hope she likes it. Have a great day!

Floral Embellishments Card

Hello Everyone
Sorry that it has taken me so long to post. I only have worked with one of my new cartridges. It is from the Floral Embellishments cartridge. It took a while to put it together, there were six different layers and some were really small. The next one I make I may bling it out, with gems and stickles. I am VERY happy with how it turned out, I'm using it for a Thank you card.

This other card is from my little one, we had our first play date and I wanted to send them a card.
I used Create-A-Critter and used a Fiskers textured plate and embellished it with some googly eyes. Its pretty simple but since it is from my little one I didn't want to over do it.

Hope you enjoy!
