The Lamb of God

My card today features a new spring Magnolia stamp, Tilda with Lamb  -  I fell in love with her as soon as I saw the preview. I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch too. I love a good sketch-- it gives me that starting point to build on. The saying is computer generated, and I know it's kindof long, but I love this saying, so I wanted to share it with all of you as well. I will stamp Happy Easter on the inside. I colored her with wc pencils and an Aqua Painter, except for her dress which is paper-pieced.  Happy Stampin' N Scrappin'!!!

Riley's Playing Ice Hockey

I'm typing this up half asleep...seriously. My allergies kicked in overtime yesterday and totally wiped me out. It takes a few days for the meds to kick in--hopefully soon! Anyway, when I ordered the large envelopes from SU! I ended up with the Extra Large ones, so I decided instead of sending them back, I'll just try to use them. So, this card is huge... 8.5"x 5.5" when folded. The black piece in upper right is embossed with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder and then sponged lightly with white craft ink. Then the snow has lots of liquid applique so it's puffy like snow, and the ice (pond) is covered with dazzling diamonds cause ice sparkles when the sun hits it. The blue layer is cuttelbugged with the spots and dots--kinda goes with the hockey pucks, and the sentiment stamp is one I got for free from Scrap N Win when my Sophia card won 2nd place! ☺ This is for a customer and I was told that it's for a girl who used to play on a boys' hockey team. So, I

Ewe Are the Best

Happy Tuesday!! Here's another card I made while visiting my sister these last few days. We used Ginersnaps, " Spring Things " by C.C.Designs. It has 14 stamps in the set and is my favorite right now. I'm typing this Monday night and prescheduling my post for Tuesday, and even as I sit here typing, I'm missing my sister. We have so much fun stamping together and laughing etc. I think it's been a year and a half since I've driven up here, and we're leaving in the morning. But she'll be bringing my niece down to visit this summer which isn't too far off, yay! :) This card is pretty self-explanatory... I did re-stamp the bunny ears, cut 'em out and pop dotted them (mostly to hide my bad coloring booboo). She and the lamb are pop dotted as well, and the ovals are cut out with Nestabilities . Hope you find time Ink Something!! I saw that yesterday's TLC was to make a really cute mini Easter basket at might wanna go try that! xXx

Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Hi there...I'm back! Sorry I've been MIA these last few days, but it's Spring Break here and I took my girls and went to visit my sister and we're still here. Today is the first time I've been able to upload any cards here....but good news!! We've been stamping up a storm, so I should have plenty to show you the rest of this week :) This card is made with the new C.C.Designs set called "Spring Things" --available to KLSNS ! I stamped the girl and duck first, then masked them and stamped the puddle. Then I masked that and stamped the fence/grass. Here's a close up picture--you can see the Crystal Effects on her boots, the puddle and ducks feet/bill as well as the "fruit punch" stickles on all the hearts. I found some cute umbrella buttons in my sister's stash, so I cut the ring off the back and glued it onto the sentiment...then added clear stickles to it. Not sure how this is looking on your computer, but since I'm on a laptop the

TLC - Crimped Envelope Pocket

Today's SCS challenge is a super FUN crimped envelope pocket card ! It's so easy (granted you have a crimper!)  Here's what it looks like with the lid off: I used a variety of stamps for this. This super cute " Bunny Sophia " is by Paper Pretties and was just released yesterday!! I paired her with this Cuddly Buddly tree, and the clouds are from the C.C.Designs Scenery set . I added some primas with stickles and pearls for centers. What a FUN project today! :) Happy Inking!
