Santa is coming


Hi all,

Here's yet another card I made while ago, that I haven;t shared, yet with you. I used the Merry Crittermas set for it, and some Candy Lane specialty dsp. The image is stamped with Staz-on, onto watercolor paper, and then watercolored.

I was planning to create today, but started decorating baby's room. I added some decals on the walls where the crib will be. I am doing under the sea theme. I love the ocean and water...so no wonder :P Hope she'll love it, too.

Love you Greeting Card kids


Here's a card and nugget tin I made back in January. I used the Greeting card kids set, one of my favorite. The dsp is not SU!, as well the sentiment on the card. The sentiment on the nugget tin is a rub-on that is retired.

Hope you like it :P
In mean time I am working on some Halloween kits for my Etsy store

Inkspirations Challenge #88

Hi all, and welcome to the Inkspirations Challenge 88. This week it's a color challenge and the colors were challenging for me, especially because I rarely use Pacific Point. So, the colors for this week are: Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and whisper white.
 


I decided to use the set Daring Adventure for this card. I got the idea for the card from the SU! website. I embossed the background using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. And added some pumpkin pie dsp, as well. I added a strip of pearls and melon mambo polka dot scalloped ribbon.

Forever Young


Two cards in one day? You must be shocked :P
Anyway..this one is pretty simple. I used the Mocha Morning dsp for the strip on the bottom and stamped the tree from the Forever Young set with Whisper white craft ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. Then stamped the sentiment from Petite Pairs in Soft Suede. Tied some linen thread, punched the bottom with the scalloped border punch and mounted it on Soft Suede card base...and Voila :)

Gently falling



Ok, I just love this set and the Spice Cake dsp, so I keep making cards using them. And totally abandon the rest of the Holiday Mini Stuff.
Here's another creation using them. I dry embossed the 2 1/2" circle using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.
The sentiment is from Hand-Penned Holidays, as well from the Holiday Mini catalog.

I sprayed the whole card(finished) with a mixture of shimmer paint and alcohol to add some sparkle. I love the effect!

More baby thank you-s


For those who know me, know that I don't like mass producing, so I am doing few different variations for our baby thank you cards. This is the second one. I used whisper white and pale plum. The stamp and elephant punch are not SU!

Here are few cards I made for Thank You's. I realized that it's about time to start working on baby thank you cards, so this is just a beginning. I used whisper white and wisteria wonder. The elephant stamp and the sentiment are not SU! stamps.

Baby Album


Here's a little album I made the other day to have ready to go for our daughter, who's expected to arrive in early December, as well to put some of her ultrasound pictures. I still haven't made any of the pages, but hopefully will get to it soon.
I used the Beau Château designer album, and the decoration is CASE-d from Heather Summers who  made pretty much same one. I used the letter A.The butterfly is from the Merry Medley on Board chipboard and I covered it with Beau Château dsp, then using the different sanding tools from the Distressing essentials kit, I sanded the edges. 
I will share the pages, as soon as I finish them :) 

note: today is the last day to sign up for Holiday Mini Matching Ribbon Shares.
