Kinda Koala!

Good Morning! I wanted share with you this simple and very sweet card. This adorable stamp calls for the Stampin' Write Markers and our fantastic dual-tipped blender pen.


Thinking of You Card

There is something about koala's that just melt your heart :o). 


To make this card I used the #134360 Kinda Koala stamp, #131261 Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers and or #126975 Crumb Cake stamp pad, #102845 Blender Pen. I also used our new ribbon #138425 Watermelon Wonder along with the #133739 Large Polka Dot embossing folder and a small piece of cardstock from the #138443 Cherry on Top DSP.

Tip: You will need to use the #101406 StazOn Ink to stamp your image because it is a permanent ink and will not run when you color in your image.

To Blend or Not to Blend...that is the question. I used both the markers and blender pen to color in the koala. You will get different effects using each one. When using the blender pen I shade from dark to light.



I absolutely love to color and I think is so therapeutic! So I made several cards to share with some friends and family.






Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Graduation Box

Good Morning! This weekend I worked on a gift for Ashtin, one of the girls at work, who is graduating from high school :o). Her favorite color is blue and she loves chocolate. So this is what I came up with.

Graduation Box




I just love this Stampin' Up set "I Am" that we received a few years back at Convention...it is one of my "go to" sets.



I filled the box with Hershey Nuggets and Kisses, Lindt Dark Chocolate, Rolos and M&M's (the $5 bill is wrapped around it). And a Class of 2015 key ring! I wrapped some of the nuggets with the paper I had left over from the front.


All Dressed Up and Ready to Go!



I love curly ribbon and I have it in every color...
so just go crazy with it because you can never have too much ribbon.


Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Inside of Graduation Card

Hello Sun! We are having a beautiful Sunday with no rain...woo hoo! So sorry I didn't post a picture of the inside of the graduation cards I made. I used a poem from one of my fav's...Helen Steiner Rice.

Graduation Card 
(Inside)


I used the #135380 Bravo stamp set and embossed in gold.

Just one more card in #105126 Elegant Eggplant and gold for another nephew. Whew! We are so blessed to have so many family members and friends graduating the Class of 2015!


And here is one more card that works great for Graduation from the same Bravo set. This card was definitely a hit at my workshop Labor Day Weekend 2014.




To make this card I used #135380 Bravo stamp set, #133519 Banner punch, #133787 Ittty Bitty Accents punch pack and Designer Series Paper Stacks.


Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Hello! Hello! Hello! I am sorry I have been MIA the last few weeks. It has been crazy with the end of the school year...I feel like I am getting ready for Christmas trying to wrap up award ceremonies, games, family get-togethers and of course graduation.

Speaking of Graduation here is a new card with two color combos for you to try!

Graduation Cards



To make this card you will need the #137362 Balloon framelits, #133739 Large Polka Dot embossing folder, #109129 Gold, #109131 Silver embossing powder. To make the cap I used black cardstock 1" x 2.5" and found my center vertically and horizontally then cut on the diagonal from each point.


These were so fun and easy to make. On the inside I put a sweet graduate prayer in each card with money of course:o). Any color combo will work for your graduate! Stay tuned for more...


Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
