This is a fun project made using one stamp! The image is stamped and embossed several times. I glittered some of the design and painted some of it too. The butterfly image has been cut down each time to show more of the butterfly as it is layered on the base. It is a bit time consuming to do, but the results are amazing! The stamp is by Holly Berry House. Hope you have a fun day!

Another card today! Simple Pleasures in Colorado Springs celebrated their 19th anniversary this weekend and this is one of two exclusive sets by Memory Box honoring their 19 years. This is a stamp set and a die set and has so many options. (you can order this set from Simple Pleasures too!) I used watercolor pencils to color it. I cut out each individual little flower and attached it to a base stamped and colored image... with dimensionals. There are a few petals that have dropped off the flower too! I have also glittered the image which is tough to see in the picture but adds so much to the finished look. I added rhinestones to the center of each flower too. The sentiment is by Verve Stamps and this card will be for a breast cancer patient...so perfect. Have a great day!

Wow! I am finally posting something again! I have been fairly active in my craft room lately but mostly for cards that were desperately needed! I took a craft class this weekend at Holly Berry House in Colorado Springs and purchased this adorable stamp. I made it into a card that opens and the back of the card is the back of the bunny. The pictures do not do it justice as there is a bunch of glitter on the card. I colored it with water color pencils and glittered it. So much fun! I hope to be back again with the beautiful butterfly we did in class! See you soon and thanks for dropping by!

I'm finally back with a Christmas card. This is made using Waltzingmouse stamps and dies. The mountains were stamped and then I added some snow to the mountain tops. The trees and houses are stamped and then some snowy glitz is added to the roofs. I added a few snowflake dies and punches. The sky is an embossing folder. Love how it turned out! Looks like the Springs today!!! Have a great day!

I have been very anxious to do one of these bendie cards for the holidays. This one was quite fun to make. I used lots of those cute holiday buttons and just clipped the shank off of them so they would lay more flat. There are a few diecuts used by Memory Box and the snow was added with my snow pen that is almost gone! Hope I can find another one as I really like it. Happy holiday crafting!

It is so good to be back in my craft room. I made many Halloween cards but did not have time to photograph them before mailing out. I did lots of the Prima Doll cards all dressed up for Halloween and I was very pleased with how they turned out. So, this is a card I just made this morning. Lots of die cuts used in this one. The little children are a cutting from Graphic 45 papers. I added snow to the window and lamp post. These are mostly Sizzix and Memory Box dies. The brick background is an embossing folder that I have distressed. Have a wonderful day and thanks for dropping by!

I'm back with a fun holiday tag to share. The background was run through a mixture of several distress stains by Tim Holtz. I sprayed some gold mist in the stains as well. I dried the tag. Then I stamped several images with gold embossing ink. I embossed Tim's deer in gold. The pointsettia dies were also dabbed with distress stains and dried. I sprinkled some glitter in the stain too. I embossed a pearl in gold since I didn't have a gold bling for the center of the flower. The burlap ribbon is from HL. The tree stamps at the bottom is by Memory Box. The snowflakes stamp is by Tim Holtz. Have a fun crafty day!
