I am here to share my creations with you. I love making cards using rubber stamps. I also enjoy quilting whenever I get the chance. Lately I've been making quilted tote bags like crazy. I hope you enjoy your visit while you are here. Please tell me where you're from and sign the quest book at the bottom. You can contact me by clicking on my profile, then you'll see my email. Thanks for visiting.
I've been married for 14yrs now on June 14th (Flag Day). I have 2 wonderful daughters ages 9 and 8. I'm originally from San Diego, been in Littleton, Colorado for 11yrs now. Love it, just miss the beach. I have a twin sister who's also into stamping and quilting. I've been stamping for over 8 years now. I'm also an avid quilter for 25yrs. My mom took my twin sister and I to our first quilting/sewing class when we were 18yrs old and I've been making quilts ever since.
This will be mailed to the lovebirds in Alabama in which she's not in good health so to cheer the lovely couple up, we are giving them a Valentine party. One who loves flowers & puzzles plus cows. I had these cow images that was given to me by one of SCS pen pals & not sure what the name of stamp is.
I brought out my old CTMH teacup stamp set & used it, slit the cup & adhered the 2 cow heads after cutting their bodies. I stamped the sentiment with Reflections Detail EP.
I wanted to make lollipop toppers for my kids classes, there's 60 of them total. Each one consist of 2 1/2 x 5 1/8 strip of GP white cs, scallop heart die from Hero Arts, then ran it through the CB Swiss Dot ef & used a circle punch. I stamped To & From with Black Stazon. I took the easy way out & stapled the bottom corners after I added the lollipops. I then added tiny heart stickers to each one. I had both my girls write the names of all their classmates.
This was a request to make an anniversary card for a man's wife. He wanted simple but elegant & this is what I came up with. I wanted to use my new MFT Die-namics Contempo Cage. All the white layers are GP white cs & the blue blue is Brazzill Navy. I used the Cuttlebug birds & swirls, big dot & swiss dot ef's. I used the SU bird builder for the leaves.
I wanted to make a card for my late friend's brother who recently just had a bone marrow transplant due to leukemia. I dedicated all my Hope You Can Cling challenge cards last year to his brother who passed away in August of prostate cancer. Cancer sucks!!! I thought by sending this card would lift his spirits a little & the best thing is, we've never met. I sponged the background, then stamped the trees twice & highlighted with Stickles. It turns out that he loved the card & it made me feel good.
I made this card for the Tea Pot Tuesday's on Split Coast Stampers. This card will be sent to a lady who recently took a fall & broke both legs. The lady's name is Marian & she loves daffodils, ladybugs, chocolate & anything to do with gardening. I chose to make a teapot card using roses because I didn't have any daffodils.
I found a template online, printed it & made a pattern then embossed it with the Cuttlebug.
This is my 1st time ever hosting a card challenge. This is for the You Can Do It challenge that started about 4 weeks ago, you earn points & receive goodies too. I chose to have my challenge by creating QUILT cards as quilting is my passion so why not make quilt cards too. I punched out about 45 5/8" squares using The Paper Studio Christmas dp, adhered them on the SU Top Note die, used my sewing machine to stitch & then used The Paper Studio holly leaf ef over the quilted panel. I also used the CB big dot ef on the cream panel then adhered it to SU Cherry Cobbler cs as the the base. The quilted panel is raised with 3D dots & I stamped the sentiment with SU Cherry Cobbler ink & added a bow.I'm looking forward to seeing what all the ladies come up with on their quilting cards.
I'm slowly getting back on track with the daily challenges. This card was made for the Featured Stamper 2 wks ago. We (my 8 yr old daughter) chose this CARD.
Things I changed: Colors & Cuttlebug EF
I used GP White cs as the base as well as the 2nd layer. I used SU Festive DP for the blue dotted paper. I used the SU bird builder using SU Cherry Cobbler cs with kraft branches. I used my new Cuttlebug Flower EF & then tied a tan ribbon.
