Bangles Anyone?

Hello friends!

I’ve got a question for you. Do you remember that song from the Bangles in the 80’s called Hazy Shade of Winter? There is a reason I ask (and you can hear it here!)… The song starts out saying “Time time time see what has become of me”. This is relevant. I have been so busy and where has my crafting time gone?! I JUST NOW got to play with my Designer Vellum Stack from Sale-A-Bration!

But play I did! I whipped up some cute note cards using the Crazy about You set. SAB

I colored the back side of the vellum with matching Stampin’ Write Markers. These 3×3 lovelies let me play with all the different vellum sheets at once. 🙂  Can you guess which one is my favorite? Think pink ink… ha!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great weekend and maybe a chance to enjoy some good 80’s tunes! Ha!                                                                                                                                  Remember, shop with me here for your craft supplies! 🙂

Hey Gang! It’s another sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This was a fun one to work with.  I wrestled with my color combo but finally came up with this number. Naturally, there is some pink involved. Ha!

This is a Strawberry Slush and Basic Gray duo. I used the Hardwood background stamp on the gray with Craft Stampin’ Ink and topped it with the In Colors DSP. I want us all to have a moment of silence… in hopes that Strawberry Slush will be continued! Oh my, I LOVE it!

The stamps sets I used are Crazy About You and For Being You. I used the Banner Punch and trimmed it with the Paper Snips. The Pansy punched DSP is topped with a Basic Metal Button and Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

I hope you’ll play along with us this week! It is certain to get your creative mojo flowing! Click here to join in the fun!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well, Happy almost Valentines’s Day! I would post tomorrow in true celebration of the holiday but it also happens to be my wedding anniversary. So here is a “love” card I made with some of our new products.

Some products aren’t so new like the gold sequence trim and the chevron embossing folder. The ribbon is from the Sale-a-bration catalog and is a wee bit brighter than the Crisp Cantaloupe (it’s Calypso Coral) but I like the way it pops! I used the new “Stacked with Love DSP Stack” in the Occasions catalog that I loooove. In this picture one of the banners is from the same paper stack and the other is the fancy gold foil paper.

The stamp set is “Crazy About You” and I tell you, you can use this stamp set for any occasion. From “Happy Spring” to “Celebrating Father’s Day”. CUTE CUTE CUTE! And it also has a couple flowers. I used the coordinating Flower Medallion punch under the sentiment.

I think my next purchase is going to be the Bouquet Bigz L Die so be prepared for some flower projects to come! Ugh, I am ready for spring. Are you with me?

Not M.I.A!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am sorry if it seems that I have been M.I.A. I have simply been in a creative funk. You know how it goes. I had a good “talking to” with myself and got into the craft room. I made a couple of gift card holders that I think are pretty nifty. Yes… nifty. I said it. 😉

Gift Card 1

They are super easy to make. Seriously, just FIVE steps! Check it out!

Gift Card Holder

Of course decorating is the fun part!

Gift Card 2

I made some during Christmas time the same way, just a different look. And I love the envelope that I made using the Punch Board! I went over the “S” with Crystal Effects and it makes it so cool looking with that shine. 🙂

Oh yes! Forgot to mention… I didn’t have any current ribbon to match so I used Hello Honey with the Crushed Curry and I waited in silence to hear the siren from the fashion police. No one came! I am here to tell you that it is safe to use the two colors together.

Not sure why the pictures turned out yellowish but this is Bermuda Bay and it is one of my favorites!

Anywho, that’s all for today folks. I am glad to say that I am not M.I.A. In fact I’ve got a brand new craft desk I’m using. Pictures coming soon! Don’t forget to get your shop on for supplies at my store.
