Oh my, oh my!

It snowed here last night!

So much!

I don’t even know how much.

I just know that when I was outside at 5:00 this morning the snow was drifted up to my waist.

Crazy!

Oh!  Let me show you the view from my scrapbook room.  Which is upstairs, overlooking the porch roof.

THAT is the snow on our porch roof!

Yikes!

So what was I doing in my craft room?

Oh yeah, I was making this card.

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Betsey Veldman’s blog.

As soon as I saw it, I had an idea using that Lizzie Anne banner stamp.

See all those little flowers I put in the trees?  They were the scraps from punching the border!

I love you Friday

Wow, it has been a long time since I have joined in on the Friday fun.

I don’t use black on cards very often.  But I had this cool black paper in my stash and finally decided to use it.  I stamped the tree from Growing in Unity in black and then colored the background with my brand new Copic markers (love them!)  Then I covered the whole image with Tim Holtz Hard Candy Crackle Paint.  It turned out pretty cool.  Let me show you a close-up.

Isn’t that cool?

I Love Earth Love

January.21.2010

I was talking to my crafty internet friend, Katy early today.

I gave her an assignment.  I told her she either had to make a baby card using her Basic Grey chipboard stickers or she could make a Valentine.

Haha.

I’m the boss.

She told me I had to make a birthday card and I had to use my Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack.  I wanted it soooo bad, then I got it for Christmas and hadn’t opened it before tonight.

When I was blog surfing today I saw a sketch challenge over on the Limelight blog.  They were also trying to get everyone to incorporate canvas into their projects.

So here’s what I made:

I cut that piece of Ranger sticky-back canvas out with my handy Cuttlebug and the Label 4 Nesties.  Then I inked it up with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink.

After that I stamped the border with a Waltzingmouse stamp using some new Papertrey Ink ink that I just got today.  I love it!  Then I stamped the flower image from Unity Stamp Co. with some brown Memento ink.  I colored the little leaves in with a Copic marker.  It bled a little bit, but you can’t really tell.

The sentiment is from Through the Trees by Papertrey Ink (I HAD to play with my new toys!)

As I did in the last card I shared, I put a sentiment inside this one too.  I stamped the Unity flower again and then added a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink.

Just so you know, I love this card!  LOL  Aren’t the colors so calm and soothing?

I made 3 cards today!

I don’t like this one.  Something about it, it’s just not my style.

I like this one a little better.

Maybe because it is blue.

I like blue.

I have the image on the next card stamped for months.

Just couldn’t figure out what to do with it.

I put Glossy Accents on the vases.  Don’t they look cool.

Wow, more cards today!

January.16.2010

I have some more cards to show you today.

I made 2 this afternoon, the other is from right after Christmas.

But I never showed it to you before.

Here is the “old” new one.  This is the first sympathy card I have ever made.

The next 2 I used my newest Lizzie Anne Designs monthly mix stamps on.

I had the idea for this card in my head, but it did not turn out quite the way I was picturing it.

Here’s another card with the love birds.

I wish you could see the shimmer on that cloud paper.  Here’s a close-up.

Hope you enjoyed!

So excited

Well, guess what I ordered today?  An iPhone!  Okay, so I’m very excited.  It’s refurbished, but I saved $150.  That’s cool, right? 

Oh and guess what else I got?  Some Copic markers.  Great deals at Taylored Expressions for Black Friday.

Yeah, I’m excited.
