Hey peeps, I've been kinda neglectful, it's just that time of year. I haven't done masculine in awhile, which I really, really like to do. I find them so much easier then any other, I guess it's because you can keep it simple, you don''t have to worry about all the "girly" stuff like flowers and bling. I actually pulled out some of my scrap DP and got to use some of it up.
Very Vanilla back ground (SU), strip of ???? DP, with Blue Walmart Ribbon, the mat around the bear is brocade blue (SU), bear is from the SU set Yukon, I stamped the image on watercolour paper (SU), then coloured it in with SU watercolour crayons

I have to say that I love this card, unfortunately it is not my own design. I came across it somewhere, shame on me and had to have one like it, I changed the ribbon and sentiment. I have had the tart n tangy stamp set for awhile but didn't do anything with it. I went on a mission for some examples and found some really great ones to inspire me, so what I am saying is expect to see a few from tart n tangy.
All supplies SU unless noted
Whisper white base 2.25" strip of Summer Picnic DSP, strip of Pumpkin Pie, which I scalloped with a corner rounder from Wal Mart. Old olive ribbon. Pumpkin Pie with scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch with Summer Picnic DSP, apple stamp from tart n tangy in old olive ink. The crooked birthday sentiment is from Upsy Daisy.

Sick of my SAB stuff yet? Hey free product, I am usin like crazy. A friend of mine puts on a "Girls gone wild" golf tournament for breast cancer and asked me to donate something. I am/have made metal lunch tins and am going to fill them with cards that I make, this being one of them. I will post pics of the metal tins later.
All supplies SU, unless noted
Base is choc chip, mat is from the SAB paper Delicate Dots (bashful blue), 2.5" strip of choc chip then punched with the scallop border punch. The flowers are from SAB's Polka Dot Punches stamp set. I used heat n stick powder with versamark and then the Fine Cosmo Glitter. The ribbon is probably from Wal Mart. The scallop oval punch is from the new SU mini and the stamp inside is from Fiskars

I have never done 2 step stamping, or really cared for it, but guess what, I think this is what I will be doing for awhile. I think it would be great for new stampers as you really don't have to be precise. I put up 2 of the same card so you could see the glitter in the centre of the yellow flowers.
All supplies SU-except the stickle
Base is So Saffron, then a strip of Certainly Celery with the DSP Delicate Dots from SAB, then a strip of So Saffron ribbon, again from SAB, with a nice little knot. The stamp set I used is Botanical Blooms, again from SAB, I did the flowers in Bashful Blue and So Saffron, the leaves are Certainly Celery, and then basic black outline, some stickles in the centre and finis!!!

So here are some of the card boards that they had at the Edmonton regional. Some pretty neat stuff. I learnt a new thing to do with the sticky cuts and glitter, it was totally awesome. Will have to give you a 101 on it. I do have a tutorial written and photographed to put up of a gift holder, I just can't figure out how to add add numerous photos in between the directions...ahhh someday.

Bonjour mes amis. I felt like doing something Eastery so this is what I came up with. I also think it would be a great card to demo as is quite simple, but you get to use numerous things. Only 2 more sleeps to regionals wooohooo.
All supplies are SU only
Base is taken with teal, very vanilla mat sponged with Summer Sun ink. Using the 1 3/8", 1 1/4", and 1" circle punches I cut out various sizes in taken with teal, summer sun, and lovely lilac and just kinda slapped them on the card, I stamped the image from "A good" egg on very vanilla and them matted on taken with teal scallop punch, whoops forgot to colour the beak in with summer sun. Then I took a filigree brad and a brad from the fire and ice rhinestone brad and put them where I thought there should be a little bling. happy easter sentiment is also from "A good egg"

Hey chicken wings, yes that is a shadow my my arm in the picture. LOL. I'm so excited, today my sisters and I went and bought fabric for curtains, and paint. I have a 20 month old daughter and think her "baby"decor needs to be redone, so I bought the Ginormousflowers1 from SU's decor elements line. I am making new curtains and going to paint her room, hmmm, maybe I should do a before and after, anywho, the paint is (obviously not exact but close) So Saffron, her curtains are going to be Pixie Pink and So Saffron and then the flowers in Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Pixie Pink and So Saffron, sound pretty rockin. 3 of her walls have built is shelves so it should be neat to see the end result.
The card here (in whispering voice) is for swapping at regional, I should be done with regional swapping posts now, and using the same layouts.
All supplies current SU only
Colours are tempting turquoise, basic black, whisper white.
Base is black, matted with tempt turq. Strip of black 2.25'"and strip of ww 2" stamped with Boho backgrounds. Tempt turq ribbon with black knot. Scallop punch used for black scallop. 1 3/8" circle punch in tempt turq, and again Boho backgrounds stamp set (I love how you can use different sized circle punches to punch out different designs with the big beautiful circle image from Boho.
