Back to basics

I miss coloring! I have been making so many cards with embelishments and have not been stamping or coloring much. Today was the day. I wanted to sit and work on a card, quietly, so that my poor doggie could lay by me and get some rest. She has had a traumatic time at the vet for a few days. I saw this little girl stamp and could not pass her up! She is so darn cute. She was made by Whipper Snapper. The scallop circle is a revolution die and the tag punch is Martha Stewart ( I sure use that little tag a lot!). I put crystal lacquer on her shoes to make them look like patent leather and also on the glass vase.

The challenge for the week is the banner on the Celebrations cartridge. Everyone did such a cute job with their banners on the BBTB site. I decided to use it as a side hinge instead. I used crystal lacquer on the glass of the jar and a silver metallic pen for the rim. Just an everyday card with a simple look.

Lil elephant

My nephew's wife had a baby boy on Saturday. Now my sister has NINE grandsons! An entire baseball team! She has two granddaughters, but, they are definitely outnumbered by the boys.

This lil elephant is from the Zoobaloo cartridge. I used the threading water punch for the scallop borders and a Revolution scallop circle die.

Just playing around with my new Sizzix Bigz die. I love this die! I used plain, pink cardstock, but, it looked too plain, so I used a Judith dowel stamp and Versamark and added a little flower to the background. Martha Stewart tag punch, and Hero Arts, Happy Birthday stamp.

Sizzix Bigz

This card was made with one of the new Sizzix bigz dies. Although I love this scalloped card die, I think they blew it! It is about 1/4" too big to fit into an A2 envelope. I think they could have thought that one out a little better! I love scallops and I will definitely be using this die often, but, I think I will need to make custom envys for this one.

Little grasshopper

This weeks challenge was the grasshopper on the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. Isn't he a cute, chubby, little guy? He was perfect for lime green and of my favorite color combos.

Little blue fish

A simple card for my little grandson. He had the lead in his kindergarten play! He was little blue fish. The play was adorable, and so was he! (his little girlfriend had the female lead.......she was rainbow fish!) The fish is a new Sizzlet die that I bought yesterday just for his card. Had to keep the card's for a kindergartner :)
