Copic Storage

My husband bought me this for our Anniversary last month and it finally arrived... It fits all my markers with room for more.. :-) We finally got snow last night probably 3 inches or so and this morning it was only 19 degrees so I guess that means it's officially winter.. :-(

Whiff of Joy - Winter Stamp Kit

This little beauty is from the Whiff of Joy stamp kit that just came out. I finally got these babies mounted on some foam so had to ink them right up. The sayings that came with them were absolutely and they matched each image perfect. The kits are such a fabulous deal. It's like getting all the accessory and sentiments for free. This was colored with copics and i added lots of little rhinestones... Just adorable... Have a great day.

Warm Winter Wishes

Here is another card I did this weekend with the adorable digitals from Saturated Canary on Etsy. Can't you feel that cold weather just looking at her. The paper I used was from one of the new Joann's stacks and then the flower I had in my stash. That cute punch border is from a punch I got the other day. I've used it to death already but its from EK success I just love how those punches cut through cardstock. IMO Marth punches do not punch as well as EK success. Well off to work I go have a fantastic and warm week..

Bon Voyage Gift Set

Wow I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted. I have been so extremely busy it's not even funny. I took a new job at work as an Application Administrator for a new Service Management tool that needs to be set up and configured with the Go live date 1/1/12 so as you can see i've been busy busy busy and time is just cruising by. I actually found some time today to work on some cards though. This one i made for a co worker that went to Australia a couple weeks ago. Made on Kraft Card stock and colored with pencils.. Have a great evening.

Inky Antics - Honey Comb

Today I have to show you one of the cards I've done from the Inky Antics Honey comb collection. These are fun not sure how many of these I will make though because they do take some time. I wanted my inside to be finished all the way since that is the focal point of the card. The honey comb comes in sheets for like $6 a sheet. Out of one sheet I think I got 6 trees. I also used the brown and cut out a truck though you wouldn't have to cause there is a stamp to just stamp one. The birdy is one of their sets but i think they are up to a dozen or so stamp sets now. I would love to get some different ones also. Have a great day...

Paper Storage

I recently seen this idea on someones blog though I can't remember where I seen it. They used some kind of tupperware type containers for their hanging folders. This for me was a better storage idea. You can find it here at Amazon - Two Tier Rolling File Cart and I use these file folders since they could hold an inch big. As you can see it really holds alot. I separated it by Stampin up and Papertrey Ink and then the bottom right hand corner is misc divided by colors Reds - Blues - Yellows - Orange etc...

Another Card...

With Christmas only a few months away I have been making some Christmas cards. Isn't this little guy adorable. I got him at Archivers he is just a cheap $2.49 stamp but he is "Oh so cute". I love animal stamps they are the best and this one is simple and fast. I colored with markers and added rhinestones and gold little balls to the ornament...

Well off to work have a fantastic day...

A card finally

I am still here I have just been extremely busy. The leaves are starting to change here so you know what that means.. ughhhh Anyway here is a card I made with the digital image from Wee stamps I think it was. I just love her images. I bought all the ones that were at SCAD but haven't had a chance to use them as of yet. I had posted this to Etsy but it sold already i plan on making another one probably this weekend... She's a cutie isn't she. I have to show you what I did with my paper organization also this weekend. It's all sorted now for 8 x 11... Have a great evening..

Designed 2 Delight Digital Image

So when I seen this little image I just had to get him isn't he just the cutest. I colored him with copics. The punch is EK success I think and the paper is the Fall stack from DCWV. I added glaze to different spots on this image to make then stand out.

Well school started this week so in my book summer is officially over. I can tell in the mornings by how dark and cold it is too. Burrrr I am so not looking forward to winter and the white stuff. I don't even want to say the word it might hear me. Has anyone started christmas shopping yet? I've been thinking about it but haven't started.

Well work time have a great day...

Hope everyone has a fantastic Weekend...

Christmas Dog

Here is a card I made this weekend. I think the stamp may be by Wild Roses but I ain't 100% positive since it's no longer in the container. Anyways I followed a sketch I had. I colored the pooch in pencils and the stocking in copics. Added some embellishments I had laying around. Added some new cards to my Etsy site tonight also. This one will probably go up on Saturday. Have a great evening....

Whiff of Joy - Fall Stamp Set

Ok so I have a special treat for you so far I haven't seen anyone else post this yet. I got my Whiff of Joy Fall set yesterday and OMG it was gorgeous. Take a look at this beauty. You get so much for the price you pay. You get everything on this picture plus there are probably 6 sayings that are adorable but not pictured in the picture. One I think says "Girls just want to have fun". There is a lot of coloring in these. As you can see here is the Little Mermaid one I colored up last night. I don't know about you but I find coloring very relaxing. So anyways I was disappointed I didn't order the last stamp set they had which was the adorable little school kids so I thought I would take a chance and order this one. I am so glad I did. My card is colored with mostly Copics and some pencils... I haven't decided if I should sell these or give them to friends for special occasions since they are more work than the normal for coloring. Hmmm decisions decisions... Hope everyone is having a fabulous week....

Christmas LOTV

Here is another Lily Of the Valley card I made. I used Copics to color it and used some Flower Soft for snow. I just love these little images.. Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Isn't it hard to believe the summer is almost over :-(

Little Witch

Here is a card I made with a SU set I bought last year and haven't used it yet. It's called Greeting Card Kids. I made this little gal and a Christmas gal. They are the perfect size for an A2 card. The paper I had in my stash from last year. Aren't them little witch feet great. This little gal is available in my Etsy store...

It's been warm here but it's hard to believe its August already. I know it is when I get up for work in the morning at 5am though and it's still dark outside. I hate getting up in the dark it makes it way hard for me to get up. Well have a great evening and remainder of the week.

Another House Mouse

Here is another card I made with my new House Mouse. This one had the cutest saying which was sold out and I need to get that said "Oh Nuts" haha... colored with Copics.

Have a great evening...

Halloween House Mouse

Here is one of my new stamps I got on Friday. I just love this image just wish it was a little smaller. It barely fit on my 5 1/2 card but it sure is cute isn't it. I colored it with copics... I added diamond glaze to the seeds and the candle also.

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Gorjuss Winter

Here is one of my new Gorjuss girls I just got. I just love it when they have something else with them like an animal. This one I colored with copics and added Snow Ink around the edges and Flower soft on the tree... I think she's just adorable..

House Mouse

Here is a House Mouse one I made. I haven't used this stamp in forever since I found out they are not an Angel Company which I also quit buying them because of that but I just love this image it's so dang cute. If they ever change their policies I would have a lot of catching up to do buying all the images I love... This one is colored in Copics which also if you don't know are raising their prices on 8/1 or is raising their prices I guess I should say. I think it was like .40c per marker or refill when I figured it out. Anyways have a great day...

Since I posted this post this morning I thought you know I am just going to email House Mouse and ask them if they changed their policy and they have changed their policy on this and you can now sell their cards on Etsy. That was my exact question to them. You cannot sell stamped images that are not attached to something though as I have seen people do on Ebay.

Halloween Trio

When I was stamping images in my stamp books I decided to stamp a couple to make cards of. This is an older stamp but can't remember if i've ever inked it before. Ain't that bad. It's hard to believe Summer is over half done. Well have a fantastic week.... Lili Of the Valley had a new release last night I got my order in right away....

Friday, July 22, 2011


Hope everyone is having a great week. This is one of the baby cards I made last weekend. My daughter's friend is having a little boy so was trying to find something I could make. I made a few of these and in girl form too. They are made from a die that I bought from Papertrey Ink. The stamp sets are also theirs. Hopefully I get some cards made this weekend. Well off to work have a great day

Lili of the Valley and some exciting news

OMG the news first. Go to this link and go to Debbie's Blog She is the first on the Daily Preview or whatever they call them for that company and then you can see another Blog and Video here at Kimberly's. They are coming out with new Spellbinders at CHA for Edges and both of those links got Videos but the tutorial one is on Kimberly's and they look FANTASTIC. I am so excited. I love my Nesties... Here is a short funny story when I was moving my stuff back upstairs i keep my Nesties in 4 regular size Stampin Up containers. Well I remember moving them but when I made a card this past weekend I went to look for them and I could not find them anywhere. I literally searched for hours for the things and was beginning to think they got thrown out. Well I could not tell you how upset I was. I think my husband thought I was crazy... he doesn't realize how much money are in those 4 little boxes probably thousands worth the dies if you think of how long they have been out and I probably have 30 sets of them. Well after hours I finally did find them stacked somewhere I can't tell you how relieved I was.... Ok onto my card.

This is one of the latest release of Lili of the Valley. Remember I said I love love love these stamps and this artist which i think as I said the other day maybe also drawing for Sugar Nellies? No I don't know that for a fact but wait till I get my stamps and I make a card I will show you what I mean. Anyways I better type fast I have work in a few minutes. Ok so this is my latest card. The spin wheel thing and I can't remember what they are called is a Die from Cat's Pajama's. I like the spin wheel but for the die you need to make 2 of them and then you fold them with the folds and then tape them together. I think they lose something when taped together but I believe it's the only way to do them. So I know there is 2 edges where they are taped and if you are looking for them then you can see them which I don't particularly care for but their dies are fantastic and as I said I do like the die... The little white one on top could be folded into a small one and then the little circle is part of the set too and then I added a pearl. Oh and those ribbon type banners are also on that die set too so you get alot of dies for the price. But it's all colored in copics of course.. But sorry to cut it short I am going to be late for work... Have a great day and check out them products and video's.

Happy 4th of July

Hope everyone has a nice and relaxing day. I just got done grilling some BBQ chicken and Brats for the family and now I am heading in my scraproom to index my Papertrey Ink stamps... Big job there haha... I wish they would come out with a catalog that has what they get new every year. I even email them to tell them that but no response lol doesn't hurt to ask. Maybe in the future... I ended up making a few cards last night with my Lili Of the Valley stamps. Oh have you seen the new Sugar Nellies release. I got an email this morning that mine are postal. I wonder if its the same person that is the artist for the Lili of the Valley stamps cause the little girl looks the same... Anyways I need to take pictures of them but haven't figure out where I can set my lightbox up yet since I am so limited for space. Here are some pictures of my stuff upstairs. Granted the room is smaller but its warm and no drumming over my head hahaha. Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally a Card

Well I finally got some cards done this weekend. Here is one of my new Riley stamps I got that I just had to ink up. I think I ended up making 8 different ones which I just got done posting on Etsy which I also haven't posted anything new for awhile. Now what to do with the rest of the day.. It's nice outside but too hot to just sit out there. I've been thinking about go getting some pizza and watching a DVD. Or maybe I will go and make some more cards... How are you enjoying your weekend?

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I'm still here....

So yes I am still here I've just been laying low and gearing up to do some Holiday cards. I am also in the process of documenting all my stamps. I bought these Canon Sketch 5 x 7 notebooks which have 100 pages in them and see the picture above. I am stamping all the images in them and then when I am bored I am coloring some of them just to get some color schemes. I have almost one whole notebook just of Elizabeth Bell... So far I got almost 5 notebooks full and haven't made a dent yet. If anyone knows of anyway to get Memento Ink off the fingers i would love to know. I have to take a break every other day cause i have been getting blisters on my thumb lots of stamping. I also have been going to work with black fingers. Believe me i have tried everything. I even walked through our local Archivers and tried all the ink removers on it. None worked. I tried every home ingredient i could think of even bought some stuff off the internet called Removeez which that worked better than most ingredients but still no go for 50% of the ink. Yes it wears off in a few days but I have a business job so it kind of looks funny lol.

I also moved scrap area's again. My husband plays drums so we swapped spots so the noise would be less which i love it upstairs even though it's smaller so i am still having some of my stuff stored downstairs but majority is up here. It's nice and quiet and warm. It was freezing downstairs no matter summer or winter.

Well that's enough chit chat for today. I hope everyone is enjoying summer since we are finally seeing one here in MN.

Papertrey - Fruit Fusion

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I am glad I don't have work tomorrow it's been a nice long weekend. I got to work on some cards this weekend and made this one with my new Paper Trey Ink Set Fruit Fusion. There are several different fruits this is just one of them. I added those little glass balls which I can't remember what they are called I want to say like Robin Eggs or something but maybe I dreamt that anyways I have tons of them so added them to my little grapes on this set. I loved the way it turned out. Have a good evening..

Dad - Lili of the Valley

Sorry I've been horrible about posting lately it seems like I never have the time and then when I do the blogger website was down. Anyways I made this card a couple weeks ago using one of my new Lili of the Valley Boy's release stamps which I just love... Isn't it to cute. I colored it in copics and the background paper is Papertrey Inks.

So hasn't it been a stormy spring so far it seems like it's been one storm here after another and I forgot what the sun looks like. And those poor people in Missouri and Kansas my heart goes out to them.

As for stamping news i just got some new stamps from "love to stamp" - I believe the store is new. Of course I seen them on a blog when they were having the release and ran right over to order some. I got 4 of them so hopefully I can find the time to make some cards with them this week. One of the little gals is in a hot air balloon and I have a stamp set from Papertrey ink with Hot Air balloons so I am thinking they will go good together though I haven't looked yet.

As for reading new hmmm I just finished a great series by Jeri Smith-Ready about a gal who can see ghosts it's fabulous called Shift & Shade I don't remember which one is first off the top of my head but i think Shade is book 1. If you love Paranormal books this is the one to read. I just started Gena Showalter "The Darkest Kiss" which I believe this is Book 2 of her Lords of Underworlds series even though they don't need to be read together as they are all separate characters in the books. I like to multi task so i listen to TONS of audible books and do that while I am making my cards.

I also got this weekend some new shelves at Ikea to hold my ribbon and Marth Stewart punches well a few anyways. I will take a picture of those this weekend and show you. The shelves fit the Papertrey ink ribbon perfect and also the smaller rolls of Stampin Up or Michaels. They are like 40+ inches long and then they have smaller ones half that size. They also sell some cute little jars which 2 packages of them fit on one of the smaller shelves for buttons and brads etc...

Dang time is slipping and I need to get to work - Have a fabulous dry week..

Berries - Teddy Bo

Here is a card i made this week with a digital image from Teddy Bo. I just love those little Bo images they so dang cute. This one I added a sentiment that I had from TLC images. Link is under digital images. I also used some paper from my stash and the cute punch border is a die from MFT's from last months release. The Flowers are from Wild Orchids.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week. Only a couple more days now and I go to Michelle Zindorf's class again in St. Cloud. I can't wait I had alot of fun last time I attend. I even took class 1 again this time lol.....

MFT's Card

Well I woke up to rain this morning but it's still better than snow haha... Here is a card I made this weekend from a new set errr maybe it was new last month I don't remember now but I thought the stamp was adorable. I added rhinestones to the sweater and her hat and then little pearls to the punch from Martha Stewart. Hope everyone has a fabulous week...

Finally Friday

I am so glad today is finally friday and it's actually maybe going to be nice and warm outside today. I can see the sunrise over the houses so that is a good sign. I am going to go to my parents house tomorrow and visit them and take my son and his gf out for lunch. But right now I am going to show you a card I made last weekend from Whimsey Stamps the designer is Chrissy Armstrong. They had a few birthday stamps come out and this is one of them. Isn't it too cute. I colored it in copics.

Before I forget I signed up for another Michelle Zindorf class in St. Cloud in a couple weeks. I've already taken them but I couldn't resist and it's not like I have done it since the last class a couple years ago so I think of it as a refresher... I can't wait. My sister lives in that town about an hour or so north of me maybe a little more. So I am going to meet her for breakfast that morning.

Cats Pajama's Bunny

There was like 6 of them in the release I think. Anyways colored in Copics of course and used my EK Success punch on this one. Have a great day...
