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.

TSB Birthday Party

The Stamping Boutique is celebrating its 5 years anniversary today! I have loved TSB for so long now and just love the artist Tracey. She is such a sweet woman and makes such fun images.
 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. 

Come play along with us on TSB Facebook page tonight at 8-10 EST for some great challenges and prizes!

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.


Head on over to The Stamping Boutique and join in the fun.

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 :)

Halloween Shoes

 I used the sketch below but I added the flag at the bottom.
 Isn't this image so cute. I love her. She is a Crafts and Me digi image. I colored her with Copics and added Stickles to the shoes, hat and sparkles around image. I inked the edges of the image and added a striped piece of Washi tape to the bottom of the image.
 This flag I cut out with my square punch then stamped the web into the background. I stamped the sentiment on top. I added the brad and Washi Tape to the bottom. I love how it came out. The paper is scraps that I have had for a long time. I think it is DCWV.  I added brads in place of the flowers on the sketch below.
I decorate the inside with another sentiment stamp, some DP paper and more Washi tape.

Inky Sending U Hugs

Here is a simple love card I made to send to OWH a while back. I am a teacher and just switched to a new school in a new district so life is crazy busy right now. I havent had any crafting time but luckily I have quite a few projects I havent shared yet so I am spending the few free minutes right before bed to post a few of them.

The ticket is a sentiment by Inky Impressions.
I love how this quilt pattern came out. I used one of my punched and them embossed them with different folders. I couple of cute buttons and ribbon and there you have it. Simple and fun.

GDT Butterflies & Bow

This challenge on Card Mania is butterflies and bows. My butterflies are subtle on the background paper.
See here they are, lol. I used a punch that I haven't used much to make the double holes for the bow. I like it and might do it some more.
This image is super cute. This is a Paper Shelter image that I cut out with my Spellbinders and colored with Copics.
