Cool Beans!

I can tell I have not been stamping...it took me two days to finish this card! I am trying to get used to my new space, and I made a huge mess trying to find things as I made this card. I think it is going to take as much time to clean up my mess as it did to make the card! Well maybe that way I can get more familiar with where everything is!

This is the sketch challenge at GKD Stamp TV. I flipped the sketch and added a ribbon instead of a paper panel. I used the GKD stamp set My Cuppa' Joe. I just love this set! The papers are from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad, and the embossing folder is by Sizzix. I added a little shadowing with my copic markers to the coffee cup.

Well off to clean up my space and maybe make another project using some of the goodies I bought in Madison today! :)

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Tags

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We just finished celebrating today, it has been a full four days of celebrations! I thought I would share some tags that I made for our Christmas gifts this year. Hopefully I will get some stamping time in this next week, since I have some time off! :)

Give Me a Snow Day and I'll Give You a Card!

Life has been a whirlwind since my last post, kind of like this blustery snow storm we had today! Being a first time homeowner has left me with little time for my crafty hobby. I have missed it very much, and after hearing that there was no school today I knew I was going to try to squeeze in some much needed stamping time! I checked out the SCS sketch challenge last night and the wheels started turning. I was helping clear away the snow and I remembered that I had purchased the GKD "Let it Snow" set with that super cute snowman. How appropriate for a day like today! I colored the snowman with copic markers, added stickles for the snow at the bottom and falling flakes. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the let it snow three times at the bottom panel. The ribbon is from Michaels, and I cuttlebugged the base of the card with the snowflake embossing folder. Well that is all for now...I did get together with my mom last weekend and made some tags so I will be posting those hopefully this weekend!

Stay warm!!
