a sweet little hello --

i'm participating in splitcoast stampers (SCS) divine secret sister card swap again -- it is always so much fun.

this is a card i'm getting ready to drop in the mail to my little sister.  hopefully she doesn't see it here and guess who i am;)  i think i'm safe -- i won't post it over there! hehehe --- it'll be our little secret! :)

i love a black and white card from time to time, and this is a fun one!

here is the recipe -

the background stamp set is from autumn leaves, and it is called flourishes v.2.  the flower and 'hello' are from SU's posy punch, and i used the punch to cut it out.

the rest is just black and white cardstock, and some black ribbon -- and a few little black embellishments.

hope she likes it! :)

thanks for stopping by -- and happy stamping!

anniversary wishes --

hi everyone -- thanks for stopping by!

this card i made for my in-laws anniversary - i like this set from stampin' up - so sweet and simple.

here is how it went together ---

to start with, the card i bought in a package in acmoore's - pre-cut!  fun!

i wanted the design to stand out, so i dabbed some SU chocolate chip ink around the edges.
the ribbon is some i had on hand -

the stamp sets are all SU --
  • have a seat
  • whimsical words
  • so happy for you
i also used SU chocolate chip cardstock and ink , and cheery cobbler ink for the heart.  the words are punched out with the medium size oval SU punch. i also used dimensionals to pop up the heart a bit.

thanks for stopping by!  happy stamping!

i've been featured!!!!

things have been a little quiet in the craft room lately -- i injured my back last week, and have been slowly healing.  but i'm on the road to recovery and should be back up and running again soon --

something exciting i want to share with you --- i received an email last week telling me i had been featured on a blog!  how cool is that --here is the blog:

Pixel Berry Pie Designs Blog

stop by and check it out!  she has lots of cool things featured, and if you are an etsy seller, you can add a link to your shop for some free advertising.

so -- here is the item she featured from my shop  - tumbled tile coasters.

have you ever stamped on tiles?  it takes a little practice, but it's alot of fun.  you want to use stazon ink - or if you need to use a marker, something like a sharpie.  it needs to be something permanent so as not to bleed when you use them -- yes, use them! :)

some people seal the coaster with an acrylic spray -- i don't like to do that.  i like them to be absorbent.  the image will stay for a long time - don't worry.

they are not dishwasher safe, but can be wiped with a damp cloth.

this set of 2 uses the SU set - because i care, and a stamp i picked up in michaels for the background.  i used timber brown, royal purple, and olive green stazon ink.

i also but some felt on the back of the tile so it doesn't scratch any surfaces.

thanks for stopping by!  happy stamping!

be sure to stop by the blog i listed above - lots of cool stuff to check out!
