Unity Birthday Stamp

I just had a strawberry milkshake that I made from strawberry Yogurt...Geez it was yummy! I guess I would have to say that ice cream of any sort is my downfall...but I try to eat the healthy yogurt kind because this has no fat and no comes from ECBY...Not TCBY, but ECBY. It is kind of expensive, but it is worth it to me and it has gotten to be a habit now. My other downfall is no sugar lemondade from Chic-Fil-A (sp??). My good friend Debbie has enabled me on both of these treats...Thank you Debs! I would love to hear what your downfalls are...besides this expensive stampin habit of ours :)

I have already given this card to the friend that asked for it and so I really do not remember all the deets, but the cupcake stamp came from Unity Stamps. I really like their stamps because they are "big" and easy to work with. I use SU's Tempting Turquoise for the cardstock and SU's designer series paper for the background. I had some left over embossed shimmery white stripe paper that I used embossing with my Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder and added some polka dot ribbon and bows. I also used Robin's Nest pebbles for accents. The cupcake was colored with my Copic Ciao markers and I also used Liquid Applique for the icing and sprinkled some glitter on top of that. The "Anna" name is computer generated and on the inside of the card I used the computer to personalize a poem for Anna. Then of course the dimensions to make the cupcake pop.

Gotta house time for me...ugh! Have a great week peeps :)

Another Artful Inkables Image

Here is another Artful Inkables image. I cannot remember the name, but you can go to the site and find it there. The reason I cannot remember the name is because when I ordered stamps from Kristin, she sent me some singles and this was one of them. I just love flowers and coloring this one was so much fun! I know I used SU's Blush Blossom for the cardstock. The other paper is from Michaels. I used my Oval Nesties and colored with my Copic Ciao Markers. I then put Liquid Pearls around the Oval and a pearl and rhinestone to finish off the flower. The Happy Birthday is computer generated and last but not least the Robins Nest Pebbles.

You can click on it for the deets. I hope you like this one. Have a great week!

It is Friday afternoon and I remembered that I had forgotten to, here me am! It has been a busy week especially at work. And I wish I could say that I was NOT working tomorrow, but I am. I really am blessed to have the overtime and so I take advantage of it everytime I get the chance.

This card is made from and it is called Hibiscus. There are soooo many ways you can use these two stamps (the flower and the leaf)...I know I will be using it in a variety of ways. It is just perfect for just about ANY card.

I used my Coluzzul (sp?) to make the outside circle and my Nesties to make the inside circles. I colored the flower with my Copic Ciao Markers and I used the White Singo Pen, Copic Glitter Pens, and a Swarovski Crystal to finish it off. Took hardly any time, which is what I need more of these days...time.

Thanks for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful weekend :)

The Lilac Set

Good Sunday Morning to All!! I hope you all have had a very plesant week. Mine has been quite busy, but very nice.

On this card I used SU's Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst for the background. I then used SU's Designer Series "Flowers for You." I stamped the Lilac stamp from Flourishes right on the Designer Paper with Brilliance Black Ink. I colored the image with my Copic Ciao Markers and used Liquid Pearls to highlight the flowers. I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch on the side, Purple Vellum to make the butterflies, also a Martha Stewart Punch, and Rhinestones to the center of the butterflies.

Thanks for your visit. I hope you all have a great week!

Weird Colors ???

I know these are weird colors, but I liked them anyway. I do not know whose stamp this is, but it was one of my first stamps that I ever bought. The card was made a long time ago and I just came upon it while going through my studio and cleaning up, so I thought I would go ahead and post it. I do believe the colors are from SU's "In Color" group Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava. I also used Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa as back ups. I colored with my SU markers and used Swarovski Crystals. I also do not know where the "Love" stamp came from...sry...

I know this is going to sound redundant, but my laptop has now contracted the "Blue Screen of Death." Why is it that when stuff (started to say something else) hits, it comes in droves? Oh well, as a good friend told me many times when going through tough times..."This too shall pass."

I hope you all have a wonderful week and come to visit again when you can. I really get inspired by your comments and all of your wonderful ideas and artwork !! Thanks for stopping by !

if anyone will even remember me ! I have really had a tough time with my computer in the past 3 weeks...could not get "word" going...could not get AOL going...could not even get to blogspot...I am really not computer illiterate... but it seems that when you get a new hard drive...all is completely "lost." And really everything that I had WAS lost. There are worse things, but it has been a "ride."

At any rate I am back and am posting a card using Flourishes "Thank You" stamps. I have been working on Flourishes stamps, because the latest ones are truly beautiful...and that is how I have been using my "DOWN COMPUTER TIME." So hopefully, I am back !

Once again, click on the pic and you can see the deets...I really love how this card turned out, but my photography is still in the making...however, my picture taking skills are going to change be on the look out :)

Thank you guys for keeping in touch with me and for all of your comments !!! It means so much to me...Have THE BEST WEEKEND !!
