Anniversary Wishes

Supplies: Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes  Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Basic Grey Hey Girl!, Ivory cardstock  Ink: Pear Pizzazz  Accessories: word window punch, SU flower garden textured impression folder, EK Success Scallop dotted ribbon 2 in 1 punch, pearls
Here is another card inspired by the Clean and Simple Sketch 235.  I rotated the orientation of the sketch so I could use the full embossed flower image.  I inked up my embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot.  Then I sponged the edges with pear pizzazz.  I have to say I am pretty excited that SU is bringing this color back.  I love it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Under the Weather

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse and Whipper Snapper  Paper: white and pink cardstock  Accessories: pink twine, oval punch, dimensionals, SU cloud embossing folder, Darice embossing easy frame, nestabilities, copic markers
I picked up the Darice embossing easy frames and tried them out.  They work great!  I wanted more of a frame around the focal image, so I embossed an oval nestabilities.  It flattened out the I ran it through again and some of the clouds were on the oval frame I embossed...  So instead of continuing this endless battle, I got out my stylus and smoothed out the embossed oval frame the best I could.  Next time I think I will use the Darice easy frame and a stylus to emboss a frame. 
I added a sidewalk to my focal image, and popped up the main panel for some dimension wih the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Alive....

Supplies:  Paper: Basic Grey Hey Girl!, Papertrey ivory  Ink: Early Espresso  Stamps: ?  Accessories: mini butterfly punch, gems, pear pizzazz ribbon, dimensionals.
Hello!  I feel as though I am very out of the loop with the stamping world.  What a whirlwind life has been, with summer coming hopefully life will begin to settle down.  School and everyday goings on have been really busy, and unfortunately my crafty hobby had to be put on the back burner for awhile.  I try to make time and then something comes up.  I have made a few cards here and there, and didn't get a chance to share them.  I just took pictures of them all so hopefully they will be posted within the next weeks.  I made this cutie today.  That little butterfly is just the cutest!  I love how it works so well with the elegant butterfly punch as well.  That Stampin Up always knows how to coordinate!  Love that!
I hope to get back to visiting stamping blogs and galleries.  I have gotten quite addicted to Pinterest!  I should probably spend less time on that and more time actually crafting! :) 
Thanks for stopping by!
