Posted by PicasaChristmas is right around the corner and the weather we are having sure does indicate that winter is here!  It was 29 degrees this morning!  The fur babies aren't even staying out very long.  I did this card as part of the monthly cards for SparkleNSprinkle last month.  I used red cardstock by and stamped the holly with black ink to make the backgrung.  I used Spellbinders ornament die cut with the Grand Calibur to cut out the double sided adhesive and then sprinkled with the Silver Glitter Tinsel by SparklNSprinkle.  I then stamped the holly and colored with Copic markers.  This was then die cut and placed on the Glitter Tinsel.  I used Crystal Effects to make the berries shine.  The stamps is from  You can see many samples of this stamp set if you go to their web store.  Enjoy.

Have Courage

I just realized I had not posted any of my pink ribbon cards to my blog.  Shame on me!  I used pale pink cardstock for the card and decorative paper to layer on this.  I stamped the ribbon and fuzzy cut, then applied to card.  The sentiment was punched out and applied to chocolate cardstock that was also punched out.  The seam binding was dyed with re-inkers and crunched.  The flower was stamped and die cut, then wrinkled and put together.  I also made a stick pin from pearls and a pearl heart and stuck this in the back of the flower.   The flower stamp is from Heartfelt Creations and I don't remember what company makes the ribbon and sentiment.  Everyone enjoy this beautiful fall weekend coming up!

Sweet baby bears

Today is a cool wet day here in Virinigia so I thought I would post a sweet baby card.  I used a clear stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  The bears were stamped on pattern paper from Melissa Francis and fuzzy cut.  They were layered onto white cardstock and a matching button was put on their tummy.  Then I wrapped the twine around the card three times and tied a neat bow.  Then I stamped "sweet as can be" for the sentiment.  Very easy card.

Autumn Leaves

Yesterday was such a beautiful fall day here in Virginia and today is suppose to be the same.  I love this time of the year.  The leaves still have not peaked but they are turning and you see color everywhere.  I hope you enjoy this fall card.  The stamp is by Heartfelt Creations and they also have a leaf die set to match but I don't have that yet, just hand cut the leaves.  I stamped this onto ivory cardstock two times.  I then fuzzy cut the leaves from the second stamped images.  I colored everything with Prismacolor pencils blended with stumps and gamsol.  I used pop-up dots to raise up the cut leaves.

I made easel card from one of the new SparkleNSprinkle stamp sets that were just released.  These are smaller sets than previously and are just so sweet!  There are three different snowmen sets which can be found here  There are three other small sets also and all of them can be found at the above link.  The above easel card was shown on the SNS newsletter which went out yesterday.  I was really surprised and pleased that my card was in the newsletter.  To find out how the card was made you can visit  It is a rainy cold day here in Virginia today and that makes me want to get in my room and work on more stamping projects.  Hope you enjoy this card!

Wrinkled Pooch

What do you think of this winkled pooch?  I think he is so sweet!  Plus the sentiment is great!  This stamp set is from and also the glitter tinsel.  This is a 5x5 card made from a medium brown cardstock.  I used pattern paper to layer and cut it in triangles.  I then ran the double sided tear-ific tape from http://www.sparklensprinkle/ down the middle of the triangle and sprinkled on the tinsel.  I used the Grand Caliber from Spellbinders with the scalloped rectangle to die cut the sentiment.  I colored the pooch with Copic markers.  Have a beautiful fall day!  I am going to visit a fall craft show and hopefully the back and knee allows me to walk the whole show!

Fall butterfly

Posted by PicasaI am anxious to get back to blogging and cardmaking!  It seems like I lost most of the month of September.  I had to go to the ER and found out my appendix was about to rupture.  Had surgery and came home in two days.  Then I was on a strong antibiotic and couldn't get my body to co-operate so ended up back in the hospital.  Finally I am feeling much better and need to get back to my crafting!!  The above card was made for SparkleNSprinkle and it is on their web site in case you want the directions on how to make the card at  I used my Grand Calibur to cut the Spellbinder dies.  Enjoy and I will be back soon!
