AMAZING blog to check out!

It's NOT stamping related (right now), but you REALLY should make Laura's blog a regular stop! Talk about insight into life in Iraq! I LOVE visiting her site!

Diary gift

Well, since the class was cancelled this weekend and I promised to have new stuff for you on Monday, here's the diary I made for Emma to give as a gift to a friend next weekend!
I bought the paper, ribbon, AND composition book at Walmart. The paper pack came with the 3D flower and the sticker letters. I also punched out a frame that came with the pack. I added tape to the back, and put directions for them to add a pic :)

Well, I'm busted! LOL I don't have anything to post today! I DO have about 6 cards I need to make, but I've been swamped.... OK, so I DID make ONE card in the last couple days, but I can't show it to you NOW ;) It's for the technique class on Sunday! If you're reading this and would like to join us, we're meeting at my house this Sunday (Feb 15) at 4pm. We'll make 3 cards (1 per technique) and get the directions on each technique for $15! E-mail me if you are interested!

Glittery U

Well, I'm going to go ahead and post this since Michael NEVER looks at my blog (of course, I say that and this will be the first time he'll check it LOL)!  When I asked Michael what he wanted on his Valentine's Day card, he said "U".  I know this isn't what he meant, but I had to!  LOL
VERY simple (notice a theme?)  Creamy Caramel base, Rose Red mat, Whisper White, and Sticky cut letter with light blue glitter.  I HOPE he'll keep it on his toolbox at work ;)

Heartfelt Misting

This one was fun to make!  I tried a new layout and like how it turned out!
I didn't get a good picture of the card closed, but the picture above is of the flap closed.  For the main image, I sprayed the stamp with water.  For the flap cover, I sprayed the paper, then stamped!  The colors are Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, and Cameo Coral.

Masking Camper

OK, I made this card and I think it's nice, but I have to say, besides the colors, I am NOT loving this card!
See!  The colors are Creamy Caramel, Handsome Hunter, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip.  I masked the camper, then stamped the trees.  The trees didn't stamp well, so I had to stamp over them again.  THEN I tried to add a sun in the corner, but I overdid it and ended up covering it with this tag.  SO not pleased with this!

Eat Cake

Well, I LOVE this card (OK, the colors are the BIG pull for me!)  Jean (Bizet at Splitcoaststampers) did an AMAZING job on hers! I just hope mine is HALF as good as hers!  SO check mine out below, then head over to Jean's gallery and take a look at ALL her creations!
I used Eat Cake (retired) for the image.  The colors are Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.  I added the dots with a white gel pen and the brads were from the Target $ spot a few years ago.
