I finally Inked Up Green Thumb!
Yep, I have had this adorable Green Thumb stampset from Papertrey Ink for quite a while now and just had too many other stamping obligations and hadn't had the time to break it in. Yesterday was my day off and I decided to stamp for fun! I absolutely LOVE this set - there are still so many stamps that I didn't get to use, but I definitely will be soon! I love this color combo - I will try not to use it on every card I do from now on *wink*!!

Hot Stuff from My Favorite Things
This is another supah set that Kim from My Favorite Things sent to me to make some cute stuff for the design team. I LOVE this set!!! It is absolutely TDF! I paper-pieced the dress and used my SU! corner rounder to make the scallop edge at the top of the card. I had a blast making this card and I think this is my new favorite color combo - I am gonna have a tough time not wanting to use it for everything! I am off work for a few days for a mini-vacation - stamping, stamping and more stamping.

Hit The Beach!
Hello! Sorry I haven't posted in several days, had a few technical difficulties! :) I absolutely adore this new stampset by My Favorite Things - it's called Hit The Beach! This set will debut on the website on July 1! While I was putting this card together I was trying to decide what I could do differently to make it stand out. Hmmm..........then it came to me - an umbrella! Then the hard part came of figuring out how to make it look like a real umbrella! This is what I came up with. I cut two circles with my Creative Memories Cutting System - then cut them in half. I used my corner rounder with the guide off to create the scalloped edges, drew some lines on the top with my marker and added a "pole" and voila! I used some larger dimensionals that I got from Hobby Lobby to give the umbrella a 3-d effect. I had some craft sand that I got a couple of years ago and wanted to use it for the background - this gave me a reason to try out my essential glue pad I got from Anna Wight a while back.............worked like a charm! I think this card turned out really great and I love the look of the umbrella! :)

Tent Topper
I absolutely love these Tent Topper cards! These great cards were the ingenious idea of the very talented Michelle Wooderson - here is the link to her original Tent Topper post!! This is the tent topper card that I designed a while back for my stamp club to make. These cards fit into a standard size A2 invitation envie just beautifully.

I decided it was time for me to post a new picture of myself - I have lost 25 pounds and I must say that this new picture of me looks waaaay better than the one I had posted lol It is amazing what a difference losing 25 pounds will make!! I feel better, look better and most importantly I got to go out and buy some new clothes that were two sizes smaller lol I still have 15 more pounds to go. On another note, I am also the proud new owner of a brand spankin' new vehicle!! I decided with gas prices it was time to get rid of my '04 suburban and trade it in for something smaller and better on gas - I went with an '07 Kia Sorento - you can't beat their 10 year, 100,000 mile warranty. I will post a pic of my new ride when it stops raining here and I can actually wash it. :)

Birthday Bella
Yep, this is the very first Bella I have gotten to stamp. I have 3 or 4 Bellas and just got the chance last week to get some ink on them. They are just precious - I love them and they are so much fun to color! I used my SU! markers to color her in and used my brown Prismacolor Pencil/Gamsol for her hair. You can't tell in the photo, but there are stickles on the cake for just a little bit of sparkle. These were cards that were mass produced for some altered lunchtins I have been working on so I tried to keep them somewhat simple. If you don't have any Bellas you sure need some - you can get yours here!

Ink: Palette Noir, Real Red, Basic Black, Going Grey
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, WW, Pretty in Pink

Caribbean Lady!
My sister Kimberly called me this morning and said she was mad and I asked her why and she said she checked my blog AGAIN today and there still wasn't anything new posted - so here it is Kim. lol I am so totally in love with the Little Lady set from Papertrey Ink - it's just adorable and you can do so much with it! If you don't have this set already you definitely need it! I decided to use Cool Caribbean instead of the usual red and I love the result. I used my new Versamagic Chalk Inks that I got from Eclectic Paperie - they seriously rock! The chalk inks are absolutely perfect for clear stamps - you get great coverage. I can't believe I waited so long to order them.
