I have sent aout about 40+ cards so far this year. I did send out many of these becuase of the simplicity and ease to make. You could make about 6 of these in about a 1/2 hour which is fast!

This card uses the Heard from the Heart set and takes advantage of the big shot.
What do you think?

Sheila email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your address so I can mail you your winnings.
I'll be on Spring Break this week, so I may not get the chance to post much. Several of you have asked for a tutorial on making those 3-D stars so I will work on putting one together. Keep checking back for the tutorial!
Happy Stamping and Congrats again to Sheila!

For this little card, I used my Double Rectangle Punch for the ribbon placement. The stems on the flower stamp are close together and fit perfectly between the two rectangles on the punch. It makes it look as if the ribbon is holding the flowers on the card (even though there is a little glue holding them in place.
Wish me luck on everything tomorrow. Did I also tell you I'm a presenter!

Well all the ice and snow that we got this weekend, seems to be disappearing. I see mostly grass from my window this morning. It's amazing how you miss it when by the end of the summer you are complaining after mowing it for the 14ooth time!

We used the Spring Whimsy Stamp set on this along with a stamp-a-ma-jig. Those things are awesome! I know I found a tutorial on using them before. I will look again this weekend and try to post it on Monday.
Here's another using the Birthday Whimsy Sale-A-Bration set. Hello is done with rub ons. Doesn't it look classy!
And lastly, this cute little tea bag holder.

Thanks to all that left me advice. I will be posting often, and I promise next week to have a lot of pics.
I made some great cards last night. . .can't wait to show you. My next project is to make a multitide of Thank you cards for a Regional School Counselor Conference I have been planning. I have 22 presenters, not to mention a dozen vendors that going to be a part of this big event. I want to make them Thank You cards and possible a small favor. Maybe water bottles with a door hanger pocket on them filled with some little mints, tissues. . .
Any suggestions? I have until March 14th to put them all together.
Talk with you soon,

I am approaching hit number 50. . .yes I'm still a baby, but everyone has to start small right? To celebrate, I'm going to giveaway something nice. I can't tell you yet, becuase it's a surprise, but I promise it will be nice. So with that in mind. . .
Here's what I'm asking:
Let me know what advice you have for a new blogger and what your favorite SU stamp set is. A winner will be announced Friday. . .the day my new SU Demonstrator kit is scheduled to arrive!
This is a card I watercolored with my ink pads and Aqua Painter. The Aqua Painter is nice because you fill it with water, touch it to your ink pad, and then color. Between colors, just squeeze onto a papertowel to get the remainder of the color out you just finished. Cleanup is a breeze. I talked about the Aqua Painter on Mama Stamper's Blog, as she is offering candy too by responding to the question "What is your favorite SAB set and favorite SU technique.
Bye for now and Good Luck!!!!

I had trouble with the focusing but you can still pretty much see it. Sorry it is a little fuzzy.
1. Paint white with Acrylic paints
2. Trace flower onto back of DP and cut out. ( I did both sides) Adhere with glue.
3. Water color edges with Purely Pomegranate ink.
4. Punch solid card stock with scallop punch and 1 1/4 circle punches and adhere.
5. Stamp flower from "Priceless" set on base with Purely Pomegranate ink.
6. Stamp butterfly from "Priceless" set on white card stock in Purely Pomegranate ink and cut out. Adhere with foam dimensional dot.
7. Add ribbon.
Wouldn't this look cute in a little girl's room?
