In Style

I finally got my hands on the Sizzix dress form and couldn't wait to use it!  All paper is from Stampin Up with shads of Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is from a real old Stampin Up set.  I used glossy accents on the cardstock button.  I can see many more cards made with this dress form.  Enjoy!

Fall pumpkins

This image turned into a wall hanging which I  just love!  I had some really sturdy cardboard and covered it with pattern paper from Papertrey Ink.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils blended with Gamsol and also Copic Markers.  I stamped the pumkins the second time on orange cardstock and used my pumpkin die cuts to cut them out.   I highlighted these with Prismacolor pencils and used pop dots to give them dimension.  I then used my Grand Calibur machine from Spellbinders to die cut the image.  I layered the image onto chocolate and orage cardstock.  I tied some chocolate and white twinery into a bow for an added embellishment.  I also used silk chocolate ribbon to make the hanger.  The image is from Heartfelt Creations.

Sweet Angels

My sweet friend, Amy, gave me this pic of her two girls to play with.  I used supplies from Melissa Frances.  The cardstock is pink and chocolate from SU and the flower is from SU.  The lace is from my stash.  The picture of the girls was taken on the day their parents were married.  Congratulations Amy and John!  You have two sweet angels!

Butterfly fantasy

Good morning!  For a change, I am up early so thought I would start the day by showing a lovely butterfly card.  The new butterfly stamp set, butterfly dies, tinsel, glitter, and embossing powder can be ordered from  If you click on the card you can see a close-up of the butterfly showing where I  used different colors of glitter.  Also, isn't this tinsel darling?  All you have to do is lay down a strip of tear-ific double sided tape and sprinkle on the glitter tinsel.  You can find different widths of the tear-ific tape on this page at  This is the tape that I use to make all of my cards, boxes, etc.  It is just wonderful! 
Stamp Set 437 - Fancy Butterflies  This is a pic of the new butterfly stamp set and it is located at  You can buy it as only a stamp set or a combination set with the butterfly dies from spellbinderspaperarts.  Enjoy.
