is your week creeping by???

This little snail may be how you feel this week as it creeps by - but he is sure cute!  this card base is Sahara Sand, the scalloped frame was made with Tempting Turquoise CS using the Scalloped Square duo die - layering the squares.  The embossing was done with a new folder - the Fancy Fan.  I punched out a 2 3/8" scallop circle punch out of Pumpkin Pie.  I poked a hole in each of the scallops.  The bakers twine is the Lucky Limeade twine.

Flowers anyone?

I couldn't forget the flower buttons!  Tempting Turquoise is the base for this card, then Daffodil Delight punched strip with the Scallop Trim border punch on two sides.  The Rich Razzleberry frame was cut from the Peek-a-boo Frames die. Using a marker I colored the vase and the stems and then stamped them.  I finished the card off with a birthday sentiment from a hostess set, Wacky Wishes.

Cheerful Cherry

Another super fast card.  Gumball Green card base, Real Red DSP strip, a small punched strip of Basic Black using the Scallop Border punch.  The stamped cherry image was stamped on a Whisper White CS cut out with the Scalloped Rectangle Sizzlet then layered on Basic Black.  I used a technique with a sticky note to cover up the part of the cherry I didn't want to show on the card when I inked it up.

It just LOOKS like printed paper

For this card, I really got some mileage on the stamp.  Using the flower stamp from Button Buddies, I random stamped over the entire card surface using Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Cajun Craze.  The center panel was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder and then I stamped the flower again with Daffodil Delight, layered it on Basic Black CS.  The button needed a little extra - so I tied a small bow using White Bakers Twine.

BRRRR... buttons

This may have been the easiest card of the day.  Whisper White CS base, emboss a Bashful Blue layer with the retired Snowflakes folder,   and a small Whisper White rectangle embossed with one of the frames from the Designer Frames textured impressions folder, stamp the wee snowman from Button Buddies, and pop that button on!

Buttons meet Fall!


The ladies thought they were gonna poke holes until they dropped on this one, but we used the new Essentials Paper-Piecing Pack.  Then we used a quick stamped strip from a retired set, Fresh Vintage, then stamped the pumpkin from the Button Buddies set three times, Pumpkin Pie CS, Soft Suede CS and a trio of 1 3/8 scallop circle punches later --- VOILA!

This Little Piggy...

This cute card was a quick one too.  Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso were the colors, a Whisper White embossed square using the Perfectly Polka Dot impressions folder, and a strip of ribbon, a brad and the button finish this sweet one off!

Baby button

The first close up is of this cute baby card.  I used the Scallop circle die to cut out the card, then I ran the front through my Big Shot again to texture the front using the Perfect Polka Dot impressions folder.  The Whisper White CS was cut out using the new Labels Framelets.  The colors are So Saffron, Marina Mist, and Razzleberry Ripple.  Of course I added the button to add the final touch!

Button Buddies Class

Here are the photos from the Stamp Class I had using just the Button Buddies stamp set.  I have wanted to have it for a while, just now got around to it!  It gave me hope that all my ideas might get to see the light of day.  NAH.... I'll just keep getting them and then I'll never catch up (sound familiar?)

yes, I'm going to play 'dirty' and not give you close ups all today~!  Check back tomorrow for a couple of them!

wholy calendar!

So, it is September!  How did THAT happen?  I am still stuck months behind in almost everything; including blogging!  I am so sorry!  Life has happened and I have not moved along with it, except to drag my feet each day and land in bed to start all over again trying to hang on!

No excuses- but let me post some creations since you are starved!  These three projects were made at my Christmas Camp last month.
Birthday Stationary set - using Create A cupcake stamp set, Summer Smooches DSP,  Island Indigo, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade

sparkly key fob - uses the Daisy die and sparkly fun foam

Holiday Ornament - uses the new set Ornament Keepsakes and the matching Holiday framelets.  Real Red and Lucky Limeade.
