Not for the faint of heart (LOL)

I have been back to work since Monday, so I haven't really created or blogged or much of anything. The blog always seems to be the first thing I slack on. I am the type of person to jump from thing to thing, again why I love paper crafting. As my sister says I find something and just run with it. So you can see what I have been running with lately. I have no supply list or anything, as usual. I just thought I would offer up some eye candy, I have seen these types of cards all over, I'm certainly not the person who thought it up. Here is the link for the templateStampowl

Finally, a page

I got into paper crafting through scrap booking. I scrapbook more then I do anything else, unfortunately I don't seem to be able to photograph them very well so I don't post them often. I made this page to demo at my stamp club. We just made the 8.5 x 11 and then I showed them what I did with it putting it onto a 12 x 12 as that is what most size our albums are.
All supplies SU unless noted
The 12 x 12 is choc chip, various buttons-not SU, and the gorgeous sweet sticky cuts with dazzling diamonds, oh and a piece of ww card stock.
The 8.5 x 11 base is Kiwi Kiss, the strip of dp is from Bella Rose, my photo mats are riding hood red. I stamped the scallop image from SAB's Polka dot punches on ww with real red and punched out with the scallop punch, mat of choc chip, and the "jack" image from Wow flowers in kiwi kiss, then popped up with dimensional. Grabbed some colour coordinated ribbon, not SU, fanned them out then made a pewter build a brad with the same dp as the strip.

St. Patricks day card

I have my splurge tomorrow night, and have not been able to come up with my second project. DH suggested something St. Patricks day, so this is what I came up with, pretty simple and basic but sometimes those are the best cards. I made about 7 of these with different variations. I sure hope people don't get sick of me sending them cards.

All supplies SU.

The card base is basic black, the mat gable green. I took the clover from the stamp set Year Round Fun II and stamped it on whisper white (1.5 x 5.25) then matted on black mat (1.75 x 5.25). I used the stamp set Pinch Proof for the big clover in the scallop. I used heat and stick powder and then green glitter from the Fine Cosmo? glitter stack. I punched it out with the 1 3/8 circle punch. Punched out a basic black scallop, and used the white gel pen.

Backwoods, I'm not talkin where I come from

No you are not seeing double, well actually you kind of are . Can you guess what I just got for a new stamp set...that's right, SU's Backwoods. I just love these masculiney type of images. I had a couple of lonely tangerine tango sheets and figured I'd play. I don't think they are overly fab or anything but thought it was neat how you could get 3 different cards with semi the same colour scheme.
All supplies are SU unless noted.
The colours throughout all the cards are tangerine tango, so saffron, bashful blue, old olive, very vanilla, whisper white,Chocolate chip-but really, non SU paper, which I think is close to choc chip, and as usual I can't give you the name of it and last but not least watercolour paper.
Let's see what I used for accessories, choc chip grosgrain ribbon, non SU white button ribbon slide, and a corner rounder to make the scallops.
White grosgrain ribbon-not SU, staple, round tab punch
Looks like I only used the mat pack on that one. The layout of the very first one is from a sketch from SCS which can be found here.

My first challenge

Valentines seem to be the theme lately. I made this card for my hubby but then I got carried away with sending out valentines and now one of my friends will end up receiving. I did make another one for hubby though.

This card was made from a card sketch, which I love and have made about 8 variations of. You can find the original challenge sketch on SCS here

All supplies used are SU, unless noted.

Mat is regal rose, then I cut my mats out of real red and whisper white 4 x 1 3/4. The inside mats I used some real red paper from a prints pack and whisper white stamped with a heart 3.75 x 1.5. Then I punched out a scallop of real red and circle punched the white, the be mine sentiment comes from Micheal's stamps.

Harley valentine

Just a quick post here, I took this picture in the laundry room, hiding from the hubby. This is what I made for him for Valentine's Day. He rides so we are sorta into Harley stuff.

Nugget tin from here

Peppermint patties, covered with only orange and basic black. The stamp is from Born to ride and a happy valentines. The bar and shields (for non Harley people-the orange stamp on belly band) is from a Harley stamp set by EK Success, ribbon from who knows where. The belly band is basic black and whisper white stamped in only orange.

Valentine's treats

Today must have been my lucky day. There was a water main break at work so I got to come home early, no kits, so time to craft. I jump from projects to projects, I ordered some nugget tins of the neat and have been making them like crazy. I am making some for my husband, guess what kind.....Harley Davidson of course. I am sure if you look at some of my other posts you will know I am into that kinda thing. I actually have a few people that are buying some off of me, kewl eh? I started gathering the tutorial together last night and have started to put it together so it is indeed coming.
