Babies and Christmas

Happy Tuesday!

I had such a great weekend! I got to see the birth of my brand new niece and god daughter Kaylea Emma who was born on Friday, Nov 21. Mom and babe are doing great so I was inspired to create a baby card to welcome her! I used a new baby set I got from my SCS secret sister a couple of months ago. It is so cute and I was excited to have the chance to use it! I used Pink Pirouette and bashful blue. I also added some bashful blue taffeta and a CB background with a baby theme I got from wish RAK.

Also, I wanted to use my Elzybelles stamp with the holiday window and the snow saying. I am going to send it to MY secret sister in her December reveal package. I hope Melanie hosts a round 3!! This one uses tempting turquoise, red riding hood and WW. I also used my new CB folder snowflakes that I got today from my same Secret Sis. She is so awesome!!! And the final touch was the turquoise gg and some liquid applique for the snow effect. I hope she likes it!

So, as always, thanks for popping in and I will post again in the next couple days. Please let me know what you think! See you soon!

Pia Pudding top holiday fun.

Well, I had posted my blog challenge, but was ahead of myself. I removed the post for now and figured I would post my sketch challenge from Monday from the stampong bella forums on SCS. I played around a bit and decided I was happy with it. I received the image from a fellow SCS stamper. Thanks so much for Pia!!! She is on my wish list now for sure! What do you think???

Tile coaster how to

OK, I just thought I would let you all know the coaster is VERY easy. I brayered a blue and a green onto the tile. I stamped the tree with black stazon and the deer with brown stazon. So easy! You really have to try it!

Tumbled Marble tile coasters

Good Monday Morning! I have not had a chance to do my blog challenge yet, but I may have a chance tonight after our club meeting. I hope to anyways!

I do want to post my coaster sample for my upcoming tile coaster class. I am also going to offer a Christmas set option also. This one still needs to be protected and have the felt feet put on, but let me know what you think!

Hi everyone!! Just wanted to post my challenge for the bella sketch challenge from Monday. It is BSC54 and you can find it here. I am pretty excited about it, I think it turned out pretty well, some of my better work. I really want to make an effort to expand a little more on my creativity if it is possible (which I think it is...;)).

Thanks for popping in and let me know what you think!!!

Christmas is coming... Oh......!!

I can't believe it that Christmas is less than 2 months away!! I had my second Christmas stamp a stack last night and it went not bad. I had 3 people come, but they are all excited about another class, so I am going to do a third for this season (a first for me!) the beginning of December...

Anyways, I did 3 cards again last night and they all seemed to be a hit!

I used SU card stock for all the cards. The snowman card was cased from the new cardmaker magazine cover, the house off of SCS gallery and the last one I just did on my own. Anyways, thanks for popping in and enjoy my cards! I have been feeling awful today so I don't know what I will accomplish tonight. I think I will just take it easy and watch my Senators!

Some Saturday Stamping Fun!

Well, I am finally getting a chance to work on a few stamping things! Yea! I am glad that I am getting some premium time in... :) First is a little web book I made for my DD using the bella sketch from this week. I am addicted to my bind it all... :)

Second I worked on the bella color challenge... It was any blue, yellow and a light green accent... I used buckaroo blue, so saffron and some SU DP.

And last is my Stooby Toosday challenge which was red white and blue... I love tyler the jock!

Well, I am off to hockey shortly and then the Rider playoff game, so I hope to stamp again this evening! See you all later and thanks for stopping by!

OK, as promised! Enjoy my holiday shopping books!! :) I think my family will think they are adorable! I do! The images are from elzybelles.

As always, thanks for popping in!

OK, I don't have a photo to share YET... but I do have a project I want to show you as soon as I get home and can snap a pic to post. I got a Bind It All from my parents last night for my birthday (WOOHOO!! Thanks Mom & Dad!!!) and immediately made coaster covers for 3 little books I made. I finished 2 of them at work because I needed the sheets for inside the books but I just love how they turned out! I will post the photo of the 3 completed ones as soon as I get home from work! I promise! I think you will like them as much as I do! Have a great day!

New Stamping Bella challenge and a 3D project

This is my card I made for the newest challenges in the stamping bella member forum on SCS. I cased a great card by Giffy, who was the first one honored in the challenges. Here is what I came up with...
I used Fifi from stamping bella and masked out the pooch and made a cute little shopping bag. I thin k I may yet add a tiny tuft of tissue in the bag also. The CS is pink pirouette, ski slope DP and blue bayou on the layers. I used some black twine for the handle..

I also created this little bird house I got instructions on from Nichole Heady found here... I put it together quickly but want to make a few more to put on some of my holiday packages...

So, what do you think??
