Fifth Avenue Floral

I just love this stamp set. I've seen so many wonderful cards using this set and I just HAD to have it. So, I got it :-) I CASED (copy and share everything) this card from It is so elegant. I changed the colors up a bit but the sketch layout is the same. I used Shimmer White cardstock - you really can't see the shimmer in the photo but it is real nice. I thought the flower could use some glitter as well.
Have a great night!

I'm Baaaack . . .

I hope you missed me :-) I hate that its been so long since I last blogged but . . . life gets hectic sometimes. I have been crafting a little bit but it seems that I am always making cards at the last minute and then I forget to photograph them and . . . you know . . .
I made a card similar to this for a Stampin Up swap I was in. It was my very first swap (outside of my upline's meetings) with people I didn't know. It was very nervewracking - I wanted to do my best because the people receiving the swaps are all Stampin UP demonstrators - so I wanted to impress. I think I did ok, what do you think??

Swap Card

Here is a card I made for our team meeting this month. Selene was nice enough to take a picture of everyone's cards and she sent mine to me to put on my blog. You should check out everyone's cards. They are fabulous!

Cute as a bug

Another Saturday Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge. I liked this one. I am feeling "springy" today and went with some nice spring colors. I used the Love Bug stamp set together with the the Tea Party DSP. I even "pimped" out the bug's ride by adding some glitter to it - ha ha. Have a great day today!!

Happy Moments

So, I needed a birthday card in a pinch. I used the stack of presents from the Happy Moments stamp set. Wouldn't it be nice to get a stack of presents??

So, I love looking at all of the different blogs that are out there. It is so nice to get inspiration from other people. I look at Andrea Walford's blog every day. She has such great ideas and is very talented. When I saw this card, I thought it was a great masculine card and I needed a get well card for a guy.

What do you think?

Same sketch different paper

So, at my scrapbook class with my upline Selene Kempton, we made this beautiful card. I just loved the colors she choose and the butterfuly cut out . . . well . . . :-)

I had to make a get well card and I thought I would use Selene's creation but with different paper. I love using Designer Series Paper as a focal point on the card. I was going to add some flowers (where the butterfly is) but I thought it would clash with the DSP I used. So my creation is on the right.

Thanks for the inspiration Selene!!
