Same recipe, different design

I used the same recipe to make this card as I did with the "Chillin with my Peeps" card. My husband's employees gave him a gift card to the Grand Hotel at Disneyland so that we could go there and have some of their yummy hot chocolate. This card is a thank you to them. The mug is from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge, and then ran through the Cuttlebug with the dots emobssing folder. I added some Glossy Accents to the chocolate to make it look shiny and some Liquid Applique for the whipped cream. I love hot chocolate! tfl.........d

Back to cardmaking

Christmas is over and it's time to get back to my stamp room. I needed to get this card made for the local stamp store, and it was so fun to get back to stamping. These two stamps are Whippersnapper and I thought the sentiment stamp was so cute. tfl.........d

Another snowman, but, it's red!

I made another snowman card, but, at least it is red and not blue this time! The snowman is an old Penny Black stamp that I bought at a used stamp sale, and the sentiment is from the Cutting Cafe snowman set.

It's not a snowman card!

I added several rhinestones to the wreath, but, they don't show up in the pic. I took a little break from the snowmen, but, I think I will do another one next!

Snowman card #1

Another Art Gone Wild snowman. I used Martha's snowflake punch again and added glitter to it and bling in the center. I also used a Martha border punch for the edge, some Glossy Accents on the holly berries, and the bulbs. I-rock bling for the coal on the snowman's tummy, and some Liquid Applique for the snow.

Snowman card #2

This snowman is made by Art Gone Wild. I made two cards today using their stamps. This one has a Martha Stewart snowflake punch with bling in the center. Colored with Copics, a bit of Stickles at the bottom snow and Glossy Accents on the star buttons.

Snowman in Purple

This snowman and background digi image are from the Cutting Cafe'
I added some Flower Soft to the scarf and some Sparkly fluff for the snow. I used my I-Rock to add bling to the center of the snowflakes and the coal on the snowman. My sis loves purple, so this one is for her! tfl....d

So beautiful!

Sweet teriberi surprised me with this beautiful breast cancer mini album! It is SO beautiful. Not only is this mini beautiful, but, so is she. I love it so much and was so touched that she thought of me and sent her support for my cancer journey. Support, is so important on this journey and I am very blessed to have such wonderful friends.

This little scarecrow is another Whippersnapper stamp. I pulled the strings on the edges of some Aida cloth and added it as one of the layers, after spraying it with some Glimmer Mist. The head, sign and pumpkins are popped up and some Stickles on the pumpkins cuffs and hat band. A small brad in the center of the flower on the hat and a leaf button with some twine. Lots of layers on this one! tfl........d

No frills, no bling!

I made this skater card for my grandson for his birthday. No ribbon, no stickles, no bling, eek! I think he is probably going to enjoy a card that isn't so cutesy. This cut is from the Dude Lite cartridge that is exculsive to WalMart. He is asking for a skateboard for his birthday. I don't know if he is getting it or not, but, at least he is getting a skateboard card! tfl............d

Sharing isn't always a good thing

My hubby shared his cough/cold with me. It's not always a good thing to share! It knocked me down for a week, but, I finally have some energy back and made this card. The tree with kitty stamp is from Stamping Fools in Upland, CA. and the sentiment is from Make an Impression. I thought they went together pretty well. I added a glittered star to the top of the tree, some Stickles to the tree, and some Glossy Accents to the bulbs and holly berries. It's nice to be creating again! tfl.....d

Lil penguin

This lil penguin is a Whippersnapper stamp. The sentiment it made by Outlines. I added Stickles around the edges of the sentiment, but, it doesn't show up in the picture. The snowflakes are glittered and have a bit of bling in the centers and the penguin's ear muffs are covered in Flower Soft. The circle is a Nestabilities die. tfl........d

I made a few cuts with my Imagine cart. As they sat on my desk, I just mixed them together and came up with this card. I added some ink to the edges, Glossy Accents to the teeth and flower center.

Cupcake card from the Imagine Yummy cartridge

This simple cupcake card was made with the new Yummy cartridge and my Imagine machine. I make birthday cards for all of the ladies at church each month and I need cards that are simple and easy to mail (without the extra postage), but, I kept one out and added a bow to it. The Imagine did all of the work for me. Inked it and cut it out. I think this cartridge is going to be perfect for making these cards each month! I added some Glossy Accents to the cherry and some Stickles to the swirls on the cupcake wrapper. tfl.......d

Changed the kitty

I couldn't stand it......the kitty was bugging me, so, I stamped and colored a new one and layered it on top of the brown one..........ahhhhhhhh, I feel better now! LOL

Purrfect Holiday

I got the 4th Snowman card finished. Now it is back to Halloween! I really don't like how I colored the cat, wish I had used grey.......oh well............sigh....

Snowflake border

Another stamp from Stamping Fools. I used the Martha Stewart double edge snowflake punch on this one. Added some bling, popped up the snowman, Copics and some Stickles.
One more snowman and then it's back to Halloween! tfl.......d

Snowball fight!

It only took me 7 hours to be able to get back on the computer tonight. My poor laptop is having major problems. I am going to load this card on here while I still can! This is another stamp from my local stamp store. I wonder who he is throwing this snowball at? tfl...........d

Have a "COOL" Yule!

My local stamp store has their own line of stamps. I brought home a few snowmen to play with. The store is Stamping Fools, in Upland, California. I love the sunglasses on this snowman! tfl....d

I'ts pink eye!

We were going to visit our daughter this afternoon and found out she has pink eye. I made this card up really quick to take to her. The one-eyed monster is from the Mini Monster Cricut cartridge. Of course I had to make the eye pink!

Ghostie tree

I added some little ghosties to this tree from Happy Hauntings. For some reason, I liked a bit of the yellow base layer poking out in random places under the tree branches. Normally, these would be covered up by the top layer, but, I liked it showing. I don't know why! tfl.......d

I think I got it done in an hour!

I forgot to look at the clock when I started! This one is for our little Zack man.
The pumpkin is off of the Cricut Paper Dolls cartridge. I had to keep this one simple so that he doesn't swallow any little parts or pieces.

A card in an hour?

I tried to make a card in an hour. I just can't quite do it! But, I did come close!
This skeleton is from the Happy Hauntings cartridge, the haunted house is a cling mount stamp from Hero Arts. I may try again to see if I can get one done in an hour!

Zombie juice

Regina, at the Cutting Cafe' designed this adorable Halloween soda can set! I added it to a 2 liter bottle of soda. I think my grandson will think this is cool! You can see this digi set here:

Layered butterfly

This butterfly is a Hero Arts stamps. I embossed with white emobssing powder on white cardstock and also on pink cardstock, cut them out and layered them on top of each other. I cut off the antennae and added some I made out of wire. A little bling for the head and that's about it! tfl...........d

Penny Black

This image, and the image on the card below this one are both from the same clear set by Penny Black. The sentiment in also on this same set! It also comes with two more little girl images on the same sheet. So cute!

The new modem is working! YAY!

Get well soon

I'm back from Utah. I was able to run over to Roberts and Hobby Lobby while I was there. I sure wish we had those stores here in California! They would know me on a first name basis! I needed to make a Get Well card when I returned. Made this one up with an image sent to me by a very sweet friend. tfl.....d

Friends hug your heart

This stamp is so sweet. The little girls are from Penny Black and the sentiment is Inky Antics. I added a Martha heart border punch to tie it all together. It's true......friends do hug your heart! tfl....d

Happy Birthday monkey

When I was coloring this little monkey stamp from Whipper Snapper, I realized it comes with two tails! I thought something didn't look right! There is a second tail on the stamp that comes out of the top of his head, so, you can use it if you want him to be hanging from a tree branch or something. You have to cut one of the tails off after you stamp, or, mask one off first. I'm glad I noticed it before I made the card......................tfl....d

Special thoughts are with you

This little girl stamp is from a line of stamps from Stamping Fools in Upland, California. I colored her with my Copics, added some Crystal lacquer to her shoes and some Stickles to the bows on her shoes and on her hat. I used my i-rock to set the bling on her dress. Now she is all dressed up and ready to go! tfl.....d

Happy Friday everyone

Happy Friday. I hope you all have fun plans for the weekend. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the side of this one. EK Success corner punch and some ribbon. I did finally use my i-rock to add the black bling to the embossed stems on this flower. I stamped this flower three times, cut them out, layered them and added Crystal lacquer to the top layer. tfl...........d

Three cards in a day.

This is my third card post for today. I wanted this bike to look old and nostalgic, but, I just couldn't help myself. When it was all finished I just had to add Crystal Lacquer. I know an old bike isn't shiny, but, somehow I just couldn't stop myself from making a shiny, red, bike. I didn't even wait for the Crystal Lacquer to dry before I took the pic! tfl.......d

Sometimes it pays to be old!

I wanted this card to have a sewing feel to it. Good thing I used to sew and kept my old supplies! I used some old lace, black ric rac and buttons out of my stash. I haven't looked through these old laces for years. I found lots of treasures! tfl....d

Blankie baby

This little baby is a stamp line from my local stamp store, Stamping Fools, in Upland CA. I cut the blanket off of the image when I stamped it and added my own blanket. The blanket is Aida cloth for counted cross stitch and I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist to add a bit of color. The sentiment is cut off a piece of patterned paper by K & Company. tfl.......d

Simple typewriter card

This simple little birthday card is made using the Doodletype Cricut cartridge. The typewriter is my favorite cut on this cartridge! Just a simple card, but, it can be used for a male birthday card, and those are the ones that are so hard for me to make. tfl......d

What do I do with this stamp?

My local stamp store asked me to make a sample with this stamp. I looked at it and thought......what on earth will I do with this? I stamped it on green cardstock with clear embossing ink, and used clear embossing powder, then stamped it on white cardstock and used white embossing powder, again with Encore pink ink and clear embossing powder and layered all of that. Added some tiny white punched out flowers to the shell with Viva Pearl pen in Ice White dots for the centers of the flowers. Whew, this was a tough one! tfl...........d

Bunnies in pots.

These little bunnies are a Penny Black stamp. I love the little bird! The bird is poppped up with mounting tape and so are the bunnies and the rims of the pots. It's hard to tell in the pic though. I used my Copics to color the those things! tfl.....d

Boquet bear

This little bear looks like he can't wait to give these flowers to someone special. I added some Stickles to the flowers, Flower Soft to the centers, and popped them up a bit. tfl............d

Scallop/Doily card video #9

Scalloped card with a doily

I love this scalloped card from the Wild Card cartridge! I have used it so many times. I added a paper doily, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Starburst Spray, and some Glimmer mist. I have a video uploading for this card and will post it as soon as it is ready. tfl.......d
