Button Up

Happy New Year! 2014

Welcome to another Serendipity Stamps Challenge. This time we were asked to use buttons. I was just going to let the buttons on the pretty shoes do all the talking, but I needed something to ground my sprigs of flowers so I glittered up a cardstock button.

So you see, its very simple for a chance to win 20$ off your order. 

I am very happy with this card and my stamped background paper. Don't you just love those shoes! They could be used for any type of card. The flower die was a gift from a sweet friend.

December 12 Kits Of Occasions


Welcome to December 12 Kits Of Occasions! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! 

This month was Jessica’s turn to send out the kit. Look at all the goodies she sent. We even received some wooden stamps as gifts!
Jessica has a new little one at home but somehow still managed to send tons of dies and stamped images. What a fun kit! 
Thank you so much Jessica.

I cut some of the paper from the kit using my Curved edge 
from Simon Says . The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

 This was a small gift tag 

I colored these images in with my shimmer pen. 
Talk about easy to mail!
I used the new Lil Inkers Die strip to cut paper from the kit.
I hand cut these cute images and colored  them with a red and 
brown shimmer pen.

I will enter this card in CAS(E) this Sketch #58
On this last one I just used my Lil Inkers die to frame some of the stamped sentiments that Jessica sent in the beautiful kit!
Thanks again for a wonderful and easy kit!
Jessica is offering a prize, make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win. 
Sad to say that Amy will be leaving the group.  Amy and her amazing talent, will be missed.
Happy Birthday Amy!

On a happy note Jeanne is coming back!

There is lots to see, so I wont keep you.

December Blog Hop!

This is a very simple card .
 I love this sentiment! Thought it would be good for a
 New Years Card


I felt it was way to pain so I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 
I  to used my iPhone.

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! If you don't celebrate Christmas I hope you had a wonderful Wednesday !

 This was a very quick and simple card I had a few minutes to get my paper fix on.  Ever since Heather showed us some tags she made , using eyelets I have been addicted to using to using them on tags. I just love them. You can see her post :wrap it up quick!

 I love this new tag die and was so happy to be able to make lots of tags in time for Christmas because my order came so fast! 
 Thanks for stoping by.

  Everything but the patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink

Birthday Painting

Check it out HERE

I used my 
Paper Smooches: Paint Palette Dies and Sentiment Sampler I love that set of stamps.

Good Afternoon!
Iv’e spent a ton of time trying to photograph this card. It's so cute and person , but I cant seem to capture it in the photo. The paint pallet is two layers , the top layer and the bush have Glossy Accents on it.  I also applied it to the tip of the brush over the sequins .Not sure if you can see but when I stamped the Watercolor Wonder  I did it twice. You can barley see it on the photo.  Thanks for stoping by .

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Chalking It Up

Welcome to another SSCB Challenge. 
This one is super easy ! We were asked to use chalk on our card.

I don't normaly color a detailed image like this Christmas Chapel … but I could with chalks . I heat embossed my image thinking it would help me stay inside the lines.  I ended shading most of it, so embossing not really needed. 

I used a brush to add some glue and then glitter. The brush gives it a lighter look, when applying the glue.

I hope you can find a bit of time to play along. 
 We have over 100 Wood mounted  stamps 
at the store that are 50% off . 

We also have 3 different grab bags – UM, Sticky cushion, and 

Cling Cushion. Each has 10 small stamps.

 Just search for "grab bag”

Want to see what the rest of the DT has done with chalk? 

I also used Papertrey Ink Cardstock, Lil Inkers Design Stitched Rectangles.
