Baby Cards

I cut 1 of each dsp sheet into a OSW, then mixed 'em all up. I still have a box full of pieces to use up. I borrowed the stamps and dies from a friend (thank you Peggy) If they do not retire with the catty I may need to get them for myself. These are cute, my favorite is the little toy!
I CASE'd a couple from Pinterest, using the OSW pieces I cut

I forgot about the tiny piece of White Baker's twine I used on this bib...what a bugger to tie...too tiny! LOL I was thinking this one looks a bit blah, maybe i should put one of the toys in front of the onsie, like it's on the floor? 

The onsies above are cut using Maritime DSP

Cards for Teresa

My sister asked for some Sympathy cards and I found this on Pinterest, they just stuck me as appropriate 

I got the Feathers stamped and cut from my friend Deb...I may have to order the set for myself. 
Feather Framelit Dies $12.95
and the Four Feathers Stamp Set $10.95

I also used Bitty Banners framelits and Apothecary Accents Framelits
The Sequins...not my friends! They kept falling off.

My Grand Daughter Bailey is 9 months old

To celebrate their 100th MDS Monday Challenge, they're  having a two week challenge.  So you still have time to create a page and enter for a chance to win PRIZES!  Seriously, this is too good to miss.  

To enter the challenge, select any of the past 99 sketches, create a new project, and add it to the linky at the bottom of the original post Here's a link to Heidi's Pinterest Board with all the past sketches.

I chose Challenge #1 
It was such a clean and simple layout. 
Papers are Tea for Two
The Flag Punch filled with the papers
Embellishments, Paper Daisy's (recolored) and Antique Brads, I tried recoloring them also, NASTY! 

I am actually going to meet her this weekend!!

New play things

Butterfly Basis stamp set and Butterfly Thinlits

Okay I watched several videos on You Tube using these dies, wax paper was the trick they said. I ended up needing to use a double layer of it to get the darn thing to cut out. ......

But once it cut it sure is pretty!

Not too sure what that one stamp is for, I used some bakers twine to border it. 

I used the Blendabilities for coloring. I ONLY have 3 sets...I might NEED to order more LOL
 No clue why there is honeycomb stamp in this set. There isn't a bee...so confused!

I fussie cut  the the flower out for this one, probably not going to do that again.

Bug's B'day Card

Oh my, I can't believe my daughter will be 30 next month. 
Yet another CASE off Pinterest, and used Hardwood Bkgd. 
I actually dusted off the Cricut to do the barbed Wire frame for the wall
The boots are a sticker, I believe Jolee's boutique dimensional.
The dress is from some retired SU DSP, but I used real lace for the edge of the vest, breast area and slip, it's cut with the same framelit but it doesn't look it. LOL
getting the angle for the corner on the floor/wall was a trick, does anyone remember that stuff from school? LOL

Pop ups and a Cascade

 A Olaf card for MJ

Safari card for my nephew Mike aka Creep

Then there's this one I made for my coworkers little girl. Her b'day isn't until July, but I had fun with this one. I am going to do a piece for the back, like an entrance sign that says happy b'day. The copier at work was no cooperating with me and the transparencies LOL so maybe later! 

Bird on the wall

I sooooo CASE'd this one, I found this one on Pinterest (go figure)
Mine looks nothing like hers, i can not seem to really copy a card, Here's is so pretty with lace on it, and random nails on the wood.
My hubby said no nails for mine, plus I used the pheasant from Walk In The Wild. 
I believe this layout is called Herringbone.
I stamped 4 of the backgrounds and cut out each board, then inked the edges with Early Espresso

Pool Pudding

Bad name for the title LOL

There was a post on Face Book for using the colors Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding
Her thoughts were for boy cards, Lovely as a Tree jumped in my head

here I go using the Hard Wood background stamp again! LOL 

Some ladies would be so proud of me, I even stamped on the inside, and I did an envelope too!

Oh, just an odd piece of info, Lovely as a Tree was my very first stamp set. I bought it for a family history book i was working on. I will never sell it, no matter if it retires!!

I actually have a couple sets I will never part with
Bare Back Classic Cars and Pickups
Wildlife Reserve 
Horse Frontier
In Wilderness
Nature's Nest
Roosting (and the chicken wire bkgd)
In Wilderness
Noble Deer

SU needs more guy stamps

Class for February 2015

These cards are identical except for colors. I can't get over just how different they are.
The image size is the same for all of the cards, 
My plan was to show off 4 different stamp sets....Achieved! LOL
I also found out that the train from the Stampin' Up! Traveler Set is the same size too!!


I couldn't figure out which color to go with so I put it to a vote....Blue won out.

I really love all of the cards I've found on Pinterest using the Hardwood back ground stamp. 
I bought that Chevron Ribbon when it first came out, used it on a set of cards for a swap.....then it just sat in the drawer. 

I'm sad the Stampin' Up1 only has the one type of brads, but I like them little buggers anyhow.

Stamps used: 
The Open Sea
Lovely as a Tree
Walk in the Wild

Early Espresso
Crumb Cake

Marine Mist
Crumb Cake
Very Vanilla
Soft Suede
