Trying Out A New Set!

I saw this set in the catalogue and figured that it was time that I starting making more Valentine Cards. I haven't really celebrated Valentine's Day for the past few years as it was the day that my Mom passed away five years ago this year. I think that she passed away on that day because she was so loved. I really miss her.

I had a bit of a problem figuring out how to put this card together but I think that it came together well. I am pleased with how it turned out. I always have so much trouble trying to figure out where to place the ribbon. I think that ribbon really sets off cards and gives them that little extra that they so often need.

For the backgrond on the heart embossing folder I tried a new technique that I read about on SCS. You sponge ink on the inside of one side of the embossing folder before you put it in the cuttlebug. I like how it turned out and will definately be using it again.

What do you think??


Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Ink: Black stazon, and real red
Accessories: cuttlebug, heart embossing folder, nestabilities, crystal effects, brads, ribbon, punch, primsacolor pencils, taltine, stumps, two way tape.

Have a great day.

It feels so cold here today. The last time I checked it was -16 celsius. At least the sun is shining and it is not showing. I have enough shovelling for this weekend.

Wow! Three Days In A Row!

Well Kelly's challenge the other day must have motivated me. I am so pleased that this is the third day that I have posted a card. (Pattinig myself on the back)

I made this card for my bil as today was his birthday. He and my sister have a sailboat and love the water so I thought that this set would be quite fitting for him. We have so much fun the summer when we get to go for a saiil.

I don't know why I have always really liked lighthouse for some reason and when I saw this set long ago I just have to have it. I bought this on the BST forum at SCS. It was well worth the money. I definately would never part with this one. It is definately one of my favorites.

Anyway, enough babble. My BIL Dave really like this card so I was pleased.

Happy 51st Birthday Dave!

Ink: Black stazon

Getting Back Into Stamping Again Now!!

My friend Kelly kinda challenged me today to post something again today because yesterday was the first day that I posted something this year and it was definately too long. I of course, had to rise to this challenge and post something.

This is the first calendar that I have made and I must say that I enjoyed it. I just love this designer paper and of course I had collected it for awhile before I used it but I am working on that too.

I was supposed to get together with Kelly today to do some Valentine stuff but of course the weather around here would not co-operate with use. We are in the middle of a snow storm here now and it is not expected to stop till tomorrow morning and it has snowed since lunch time. Bummer.

Stamps: True Friend
Ink: Non SU Green, su marker used for the rust
Paper: SU designer paper called Apple cider

Thanks for visiting my blog. Come back soon.

Happy Stamping!

I'm Finally Back!

Been awhile since I finally got around to making a card. Between everyday life and a bad back and neck I just haven't been able to do anything.

This is a card that I made for my Sisters Mother In Law as she is having surgery on Monday to remove a lump in her breast. I wanted to bring it up to her this weekend so she would know that I was thinking about her and wished her all the best. I hope that it will make her feel a bit better. I can only image what she must be going through. Being an 86 year old woman and find out that you have breast cancer must be scarey. She is such a sweet woman and I just love her dearly.

Good luck Nanny Keeping, my hopes and prayers are with you.

I was at Michael's last night and saw this ribbon and this card just went on from there. I thought that it was so cute and then I thought about this set. It is not quite a match for the real red but it will do.

Stamps: Best of Cluck, Riveting
Paper: Real red, whisper white
Ink: Stazon black and classic su black
Accessories: punches, cuttlebug, nestabilites, primsacolor pencils, taltine and
a stump, su markers

Hope you all have a great day and thanks so much for dropping by

Take care
