Perfect Princess

Hi!!  Here are a couple of cards I've made with the Perfect Princess Stamp Set!!  I am trying to come up with birthday cards and thank you cards for a friend of mine.  She has her own business, and needs cards to send to her customers and hostesses.  She wants bling, and I'm having trouble coming up with anything at all!!  So, if you have any suggestions for me, I'm ready and waiting!!! :-)


This card uses Lavendar Lace and Pretty in Pink.  The crown is stamped, then covered with irridescent ice embossing powder--over the entire white piece.  It's very sparkly!!!


This is just white and Pretty in Pink.  Again, I used the irridescent ice embossing over the white piece.  This is my favorite of all, but still feel like it's missing something..........


And, last but not least, is this very simple card!  I used my cuttlebug to make the background on the Lavendar Lace.  Then tied white organdy ribbon around, and stamped the sentiment above the ribbon.  Like it, but maybe needs some more bling?

Thanks in advance for any help you're able to provide!!!  I'm sure Michele will appreciate it, too!!

Happy Stamping!!!

Fresh Cuts

Here are two more samples I made using the Fresh Cuts Notecards and stamp set:


Both use the Berry Bliss Designer Paper--so pretty!

Other items used:

Purely Pomegranate ink, Five Petal punch, pink brads (from the Soft Subtle Brads).


I used Pretty in Pink ink for this one--I prefer the pomegranate, but this is cute, too!!

This Sneak Peek is only avaible until June 30, but will be in the new catalog in August!!  For all the details, click here.

Have a lovely Sunday!!!

Happy Stamping!!

P.S.  I'm working on some GREAT specials on the retiring list!!!  But, you must be signed up for my email newsletter to see them!!  Sign up today!!!  (see left sidebar, right below the picture of the boys!)

Card from Sherrie!!

Good morning!!!  I'm so excited today--my son Cameron has been at Confirmation Camp in Colorado since last Sunday, and he comes home tonight!!  I can't wait to give him a big hug!!  

While I wait, I'm going to head over to the fairgrounds for the New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair.  Pami, one of my dearest friends, has a booth there!!!  She works with polymer clay, and makes the most fantastic jewelry, home decor items, etc.  She is so talented!!  If you have a chance, stop by and see her!! 

Here's a card I received from Sherrie (my upline).  She sends cards to the top ten in sales each month, and I was lucky enough to make it for May!!


She used the Celebrate Everything stamp set for the main image!  The designer paper is Summer Picnic, available in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  You can only order from this catalog until June 30!!  Get your orders in now!!! :-)

Happy Stamping!!!

One MOre Shoebox Swap Card

I totally forgot to post the cards I did for the shoebox swap!!!  I had three for everyone to make--all very simple, but fun!!  The first was the card I posted on June 25th--the Eat Cake birthday card.  The second one will have to wait--haven't taken a picture yet!!  Here is the third one:


I made this with the new Fresh Cuts stamp set.  I stamped the image on glossy white cardstock with Black Stazon.  I let it dry completely, then used sponge daubers to "color"--basically, just stipple the color on!  I lvoe the eay it turned out!!

Other stuff used:

Bashful Blue, Basic Black and Glossy White cardstock.

Black Stazon;  Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue & Apricot Appeal Classic Ink Pads.

5/8" Celery Grosgrain.

I also used this as a make-n-take at my June workshops!

Happy Stamping!!!

Shoebox Swap!!

On Monday evening, a few of the ladies in my group came over for a shoebox swap!!  We had such a great time.  These are my favorite meetings because we #1. get to stamp!! and #2.  we talk alot!!  And learn so much from each other!!   That's what I love about Stampin' Up!--all the friends we make while doing what we do!!!

Okay, here are the cards:


This card was designed by Leilani.  It's cut using the Coluzzle!  Isn't it fun?!!!


This card was designed by Anne Hayward.  The salt on the rim is done with sticky strip and beads!  So cute!!  (Anne says it's not "salt", it's ice!! haha!!)


And, this one was designed by Jenni Hogan!!  This is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets! 

Thanks, girls, for a wonderful evening!!!

Finally--a chance to play!!

hat fun!  I finally had a couple of hours to play this morning!!  I tried MaryJo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  I love doing these, but haven't had a chance the last few weeks!  You can see the original sketch here.


I used the soon-to-retired Eat Cake stamp set--it's a fun one!!  The polka dots paper is from the East Coast Prep Designer Paper.  The card is Soft Sky, and measures 9 1/4" x 4" when closed.  I also used More Mustard and Whisper White cardstock, and White grosgrain.

Here's a close up of the main image.  I used lots and lots of glitter!!!




How do you like my new layout!!!  and, check out my new Banner!!!!!  Isn't it beautiful!!!  Michelle designed it for me, and even gave me instructions to upload it!!  I'm so happy with it!!!  She does beautiful work!  You can see her work here.  Thanks, Michelle!!!!
