Cards from class

I had a great Card Class this month, I however forgot to take pictures before class and I always give at least 2 cards to the facility as a thank you.

This is one of the great cards we made this month. I saw a card just like this somewhere, just not sure where... so if you were first to make this card please tell me so I can give you credit!

I am going to be gone camping for a few days, but will have cards from my last class posted every other day, so please come back and take a look!

Deer friend

This has got to be one of my favorite cards that I have made.
I made this bad boy for a swap a while back. I really miss this DSP, it was one of my favs! so you probably want the details on this card...
Stamp sets: Forest friends, All holidays
Ink: Chocolate Chip classic pad; Old olive, Choc. Chip, and Regal Rose markers
paper: Good Morning Sunshine DSP; Choc. Chip, Regal rose, Whisper White card stock
Choc. Chip double stitched Ribbon, texture plates and Big Shot
I ran the regal rose cs through the Big Shot with the Polka dot texture plate, then I attached the DSP and the ribbon before I attached it to the card base. for the focal point I use the markers to color the words and stamped onto the whisper white cs, then I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the deer in the perfect spot.

thanks for looking,

New Toys

I am loving the Movers and Shapers die for the Big Shot. This is the first card I made with it. It is a simple card, but I love it!

For this card I used the Melon Mambo card stock, and the Melon Mambo ribbon. I used the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and a sentiment from the new stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes. I stamped my words on to Whisper white cs in Rich Razzleberry ink, then punched it out with the Modern Label punch. I sponged the edge with Soft Suede ink before I attached it.

Thanks for looking!

Simple Butterfly

Today's card is a simple, yet I think beautiful one. To make this card I used a Chocolate chip card stock base , I layered a

piece of Choc chip DSP on the top, and a strip of Close to Cocoa on the bottom section. I tied a piece of Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon around the Close to cocoa piece before I adhered it to the card. I ran a piece of pink DSP thru the Big Shot using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. I then used Crystal effects to adhere the 2 half halfback white pearls from the Pretties kit. To finish off the card I added a sentiment from the Chit chat rub-ons pack to the Close to Cocoa strip.

I hope you enjoy this card! I know I did.

Thanks for stopping by!

Family reunion

Oh how I miss my family. They all live 500 miles away, so visits are far and few between and the drive is, well LONG. The boys did really good on this trip, they slept almost the whole 10 hours there, but that's only because I made them stay up the night before.

My boys love to fish and a trip to Idaho would Kill them, or so they think, without a stop at the Snake river for Cat fishing.

They usually catch more than they did this trip, only 2,so we gave them to Great-Grandpa and he really loved them!

I was having so much fun hanging out with my family that I totally forgot to take any pictures at the family reunion, I am pretty bummed about that. I am sure that my sweet sisters and cousins will share with me though!

I did take some pics of our sisters night out, which was the calmest (is that a word?) it has ever been. I think we were all tired, and it was supper hot in Idaho. I think I picked the worst time to visit, 105 on Sat! and that is about 40 degrees hotter than where we live!

This me, My big sis Honey (yes that really is her name, her real name) and my little sis Angie. (we always take a self portrait on our outings)

On our way home we decided to stop at a desert lake that we have driven by 2-3 times a year for the last 10 years, and NEVER stopped... Well it was pretty darn neat. A good sized lake in the middle of the desert, you can not see it from the hwy so I have always wondered why do all these people stop and camp there ( you can see their campers). While we were there I did remember my camera. We saw a flock of White pelicans, in the desert of all places! I am used to seeing them here on the coast, but have never seen them inland! We did see a few other strange looking birds, but have no clue what they were. We will have to make sure we stop and take pictures next time, and bring our bird book!

So that is what I have been up too. Hopefully I will get some stamping in soon!

I started off with the sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #78

but sometime we end up doing something completly different!

So this is my first time using the Inspired by Nature set. I used watercolor crayons and colored directly onto the rubber. Before coloring on the rubber I misted the stamp lightly with water. after coloring I misted again, and I misted the watercolor paper that I stamped on.
After the image was completly dry I placed my rub on, and rubbed it on...
I layered the stamped image onto Night of Navy cardstock. I tied a piece of Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon around the bottom. and then layered this onto a Whisper White card base.

I did a Splitcoast challange!!

So I did it, I said I would start doing them, and I actually did!! I did a Splitcoast challange, challange SC237, and how fun it was...

So I will tell you what I did for my card. I started off with a Basic gray card base. I used Rich Razzelberry and Basic Black as my main colors. I used the dotted image from Extreme Elements and stamped in down the long piece with Versamark ink. While that was drying I stamped the pirate in Versamark onto a piece of shimmer white, then embossed it with black embossing powder. I then stamped the other images from Extreme Elements over the pirate image in Rich Razzleberry.

I then used my template from my mat pack to place 18 vintage brads. I am very happy with the way this turned out. ( my boys even like the card, they said "finally and cool card")
until next time,

So I have been playing around and trying to get a little more computer savy, I wanted to add a watermark to my pictures, and so I spent all day yesterday downloading Adobe photoshop 7, had I known it would take 8 hours to download, I would have just went to town and bought it! Anyway I went to Stampin Kub and checked out this video I watched it ages ago, and needed a refesher. so here is my new watermark, what do you think??

The card btw is one I made for a cousin who lost her brother a few years ago.
The flower is from Riot of petals. you can find the details about this card on my splitcoast gallery.
I know I don't haved a lot in my gallery, I am tring to get better about sharing my creations!

The new catalog is here!

Okay... Now I know what you are thinking, yeah right no way she will keep this up. There is no way that she is going to actually post pictures and keep us up to date on anything. Well I guess you will just have to wait and see! lol I am REALLY going to try! So I am going to start doing these sketch challenges, and I promise to post them! I may even do some extra stuff too!!
Cross your fingers and I will too!
On another note, the boys have been keeping me very busy. Swimming lessons start next week, and Jaeden and Tim both want jobs... and then there is camping, which we have yet to do this summer! Oh and a family reunion in a few weeks... busy, busy!
