Good Morning All! It's a rainy day here in NYC... a perfect day for crafting. I made a few Mother's Day cards using my Gypsy and my Cricut. I am just loving the Gypsy, I find that with the Gypsy I'm using my Cricut a whole lot more.
I used DCWV cardstock, ribbon(from Michael's), stickles, Cricut Expression, Walk in My Garden, Gypsy Wanderings, ( I welded the flower from Gypsy Wanderings to a vase from WIMG), Fiskar's border punch ,dollar stamp from Michael's and cuttlebug embossing folder for added texture. Hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.

Hi All! I finally got to play with my Cricut Forever Young cartridge. It has quickly become one of my favorites. You can make such cute little purses...they are just adorable. This cartridge is great for the fashionista in your life.
For my first project I decided to make a little purse and a matching card. I used DCWV cardstock, ribbon, cuttlebug embossing folder, Forever Young cartridge, gems, and Fiskar's corner punch. I had a lot of fun creating today, hope you all had a chance to get creative.

Finally, I'm able to get to my blog. Have had computer issues the last couple of months. I just got a new laptop and am back in business. I have lots of projects to post. I'll start off with one of my favorite new stamps, Totally Tess from Stampin'Up. I think she is so stinkin'cute.
I made two quick and simple cards using this adorable stamp. I used DCWV cardstock/patterned paper, stickles(my new favorite embellishment), ribbon, SU's Totally Tess stamp, cuttlebug embossing folder, and image colored in using prismacolor watercolor pencils.

Hi all!! Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. This weekend I decided I wanted to make cards using things that I have not used in awhile. So, out came my Cricut, Glitter cardstock, and Stampin' Bella. All things that I love but have been sort of pushed aside lately. I forgot how much I love my Stampin' Bella stamps they are so stinkin' cute.
For this card the theme is black/white with a pop of color. I used DCWV glitter cardstock, stamp from Stampin' Bella, cuttlebug embossing folder, ovals made on the cricut, Martha Stewart border punch, ribbon, glitter glue and flower embellishments. I colored the image using prismacolor watercolor pencils and added glitter glue on the present and hat. I used pop dots to adhere the image to the card for added dimension. I love how it turned out.

This week the theme over at The Pink Elephant is Fall. I love Fall, it is one of my favorite seasons. I love the crisp air, the golden colors, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
For this card I used DCWV patterned paper from their Fall Stack, SU cardstock, Inkadinkado Autumn Greetings stamp set, SU chocolate chip ink, nestabilities, ribbon from my stash, stickles, and prismacolor watercolor pencils. I wanted to add a little dimension to the card so I paper pieced the pumpkin and the leaf.
Hope you are all enjoying your Fall day!!

Thanks to the challenge at A Spoonfull of Sugar, I'm inspired to create christmas cards. I was going through some of my stamps this morning and I found this Poinsettia Stamp by PSX. I wanted to use non-traditional christmas colors, so I decided on pink and gold. It reminds me of a Victorian christmas. I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder and colored it in using watercolor pencils. I used Bazzil bling and SU brushed gold cardstock,SU scallop punch, pink and lace ribbon, cuttlebug embossing folder and pearls. Thanks A Spoonfull of Sugar for inspiring me.
