All SAB card

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!!!

Glitter semi tutorial

The card with the gorgeous coloured heart done in glitter is one from the Edmonton regional. I fell in love with it. I probably have about 8 pictures of this card on my camera. I did not make the card with the heart, I repeat I did not make the card with the heart, isn't it hot though. The cards with the flowers done in glitter is the one I made. It is so easy, I will tell you how to do it and then give the supplies for my card. Roger that?

Take SU's sticky cuts, letters or "sweet" OR in just the sheet of sticky cuts pages, did you know you could get ones that you can make your own, just think of all the possibilities with punches and the sheet of sticky cuts...I'm in heaven.

Step 1
Take a sticky cut, I choose 3 flowers from the SU sticky cuts "Sweet". I just peeled one side off of the sticky cuts and adhered to the whisper white paper, then a took my hobby knife and on the sticky cuts, cut it into 3 pieces. (the heart card would have cut theirs 6 times).

***you will end up cutting through your paper, don't worry about it. It is best to the cutting on a cutting mat, before you put your card together.

Step 2

I peeled off one section of my sticky cut and dumped Fine Cosmo glitter on it, then the next flower etc. Pat the glitter down to get it to adhere even better. Work with only 1 colour at a time.

Step 3

Peel away the middle section of the flower and using a different coloured glitter, adhere to sticky cut. You can do this as many times as you want.
All supplies SU
Base is Pacific Point, mat is Rose Red
Flowers are from Sticky Cuts Sweet on Whisper White paper matted with Pumpkin Pie
Blue glitter from Fine Supernova- Aqua
Orange glitter from Fine Supernova- Orange
Pink glitter from Fine Cosmo- Rose Pink
Ribbon is 1/2 Striped grosgrain ribbon- Pumpkin Pie

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.

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.

Easter already

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"

Beautiful Boho backgrounds

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.

Eye candy

Whew, lotta posts, I just wanted to have some eye candy on the top. The one card you have seen before, I just wanted to show how different things can be with a different setting. Another "photo shoot" my sister and I had.

An award, an award

Wow, can you believe it, a talented lady, whose blog I like to visit was kind enough to give me this award. You can find her blog at Sarastamper , go check her out.

I didn't know what to do with the award or what not so I kinda blew her off for a bit (sorry Sara), then I figured I would grab the bull by it's horns and email and ask, this is what you do, just click on the award and save to your pictures and then do a regular post. Now I believe that I am to pass this on to 5 other people. Let's give it a whirl. Head on over to check out these ladies, yes it is kinda chain mailish, but it makes a person (me, anyways) feel good to receive. These virtual strangers enjoy your creations enough to do this. If it's your thing, it's you thing, if not c'est la vie.

Spiderman invitations

My son is turning 4 in a few weeks and like every other little boy he's in love with Spider man, so we will be having a Spidey party. I am making the invitations with paper and stickers, I don't have enough of the same Spidey stickers so they will all be a little different. I don't know if It's a faux pas but some of the invites are going to little girls so I am feminizing them (poor spidey with glitter-he-he). I will post some of those another day.
The colours I choose were brilliant blue, real red and whisper white, so those are what I used for paper, ink, etc. I have a little spider web stamp that I used and the stickers are from Sandylion, I bought them at Dollarama. I printed the swing on by off the computer with Spinstee font.

Lately I have been trying to come up with some designs for swap cards and I have a serious block, if I sit down and just craft things are ok, but the fact that I am trying to come up with the perfect design is driving me nutso, and I can't. I made this card awhile ago and just had it sitting on my desk when my sister seen and said I should post. I was going to make this card for swapping at regionals but I don't have any silver hodge podge and you have to use only current material for regional swaps so back to the drawing board

All supplies SU

Bottom base is not quite navy, then a strip of Urban Garden DSP.

The other base is kiwi kiss, baja breeze mat, not quite navy mat. I then stamped the image from pocket silhouettes in baja breeze and not quite navy. A little pewter paper clip from hodge podge and a little bit of whisper white ribbon to finish it off.
