IS Blue Christmas

I am totally digging this Bo Bunny paper. It is so bright and pretty. Perfect with my scripture stamp. Inspired Stamps will start carrying lots of Bo Bunny papers October 1 and this is one of them.
 Luke 2:11 is a scripture stamp that is part of the Vintage Christmas. I used my Spellbinders to cut it out and the lacy circle behind it. The inside sentiment is from my favorite set Christmas Poinsettia.
I used this sketch for inspiration. I added s snowflake brad instead of a flower.

Card Mania's challenge this week is to use a doily. I made this card with several doilies and my background paper. I stamped flowers on two of them with an Inspired Stamps flower stamp. I added some yellow to the center of the flower with my copic. I added small rhinestones to add some sparkle.

TSB Happy Anniversary

I tried some new paper that has gold in it which I normally hate but I am trying to expand my colors a bit. Lots of people like gold, just not me. However gold is great on cards. I used a Jaded Blossom Stamp for the front sentiment. I used my Spellbinders to cut it out. I added some gold gems around the card.
This is a new The Stamping Boutique image called Dried Flowers. I colored it with Copics and added Stickles.
The inside sentiment and scripture on the back are from a Sweet N Sassy stamp set. I loved the DCWV gold stack paper I got and wanted to use it but I didn't want to cover any of this say so I put it on the inside of the card.

 This is her new image for today's anniversary party. I colored it with Copics and added Stickles.
The paper I used is DCWV Birthday Stack. The inside sentiment is Stampendous.

IS OH Christmas Tree

I actually did something new on this card.

I used Luke 2:14 Tree image/scripture. I added some color with my Copics and added Stickles to the stars.
I tried something new with my ribbon. I looped a piece twice then hole punched it and put a brad to keep it together. I like how it came out.
 The holly is from the Christmas Poinsettia set. I used green distressed ink and added some red to the berries. I added Stickles to the berries. The inside sentiment came from Perfect Christmas Sentiment.
I used some paper that I have had for several years. I bought a paper pack years back and have about 20 pages left. I believe this is DCWV. Man a pack of scrapbook paper goes a long way when you are making mainly cards and other small projects. Yet I can't bring myself to stop buying large paper packs. The deal you can get on those just can't pass it up.

Learning is fun

This card came out so cute. Perfect for a coworker that has been helping me adjust to my new school.

This image is Learning is Fun by The Paper Shelter. I colored her with Copics. I embossed the red paper behind her with a notebook embossing folder. I used a notebook looking punch on the side of the image to add even more school elements. I inked around the image with some green ink.
The inside sentiments are from a Jaded Blossom stamp set. The paper is some old DCWV paper that I have some scraps left of.This ribbon went perfect with it.

TSB Back to School

This week on The Stamping Boutique the challenge is Back to School.

As my followers are aware I am sure, I am a teacher so having cute school images is key for me. I started a new job this year so I need lots of cards to thank all the helpful people at my school.
Audrey is still one of my favorites. This is Audrey Playing Hopscotch. I added some color to her with my Copics. I keep my themed paper together in a plastic pocket folder so I don't always remember the brand of the paper. I believe this is DCWV. I have scraps of these pages that I have been using for years now.
The inside of the card I used a Jaded Blossom's stamp. I like to added a little DP inside my card to give it that something extra.

IS Christmas Card

I can not believe it is almost Christmas again! Man this year has flown by and good residence. This has been the worst year for me. So much stress. I am ready for a new year that is hopefully better. 
I used two of my favorite Inspired Stamps sets on this card.  HLO Christmas Girl is the stamp I just keep going to. Something about her draws me in.  I colored her with Copics and added Stickles to the flowers. I cut a red embossed piece of red card stock then I spray glittered it to put behind my image.
 Christmas Poinsettia was used on the inside of the card and for the sentiment on the front. I cut the front one out with my Spellbinders die and added some white with a gel pen.

Sweet Sympathy


I wanted a little inspiration to get me started with this card so I looked at the Mojo sketch and say this background paper and thought perfect! I was debating what sentiment to do with this card and decided to go with sympathy since this is such a sweet card maybe it will give some just a second to think of something else.
This image is super cute. It is Spring Swing by The Paper Shelter. I colored her with Copics and added some Stickles to the flowers, bow and middle of the dress.I used distress ink, antique linen around the edges.
 I used Jaded Blossom sentiments on this card. I added some paper flowers. I colored a couple white flowers with blue spray so I could have some matching blue flowers. The brown flower came that color. I added a few pearls and some sheer ribbon.The paper is DCWV.
I added some of the DP inside the card with another Jaded Blossom sentiment.
Your comments are greatly appreciated and make my day just a little better :)
