Totally not stamp related...

unless you can call stamping my feet in excitement related to this blog. I'm going to see Robert Pattinson today!!!

I'm working on the set of "Cosmopolis" today. I can't wait to see him! They are not allowing us to bring any cell phones on set, but I'll do my best to get pics (without getting fired :))

More to follow...

Teacher cards

So, I don't have any kids. When I placed an order once with MFT, I recieved a free set that I can't find on the site right now :) for teachers. My sister however has 2 boys that needed some cards for thier teachers for the end of the school year. Yay, I get to use the stamps! The design is the same for all three cards, just using different papers and embellishments. I used Stella and Rose Hazel for one card and the other two were Fine and Dandy Tickeled Pink and True Blue all from MME. Enjoy!

Bright Swingin' Mavis

Hi folks, this is going to be a quick post, I have to hit the road to go to my Mom's house for a yard sale tomorrow morning...

This is of course as the title suggests Swingin' Mavis from Stamping Bella. I've used some the Stella and Rose paper from MME along with some ribbon, flowers and brads from my stash. Sadly, this card was made for a friend who's kitty passed away over the weekend...such a hard thing to go through...

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!

I wonder if she's reading Twilight?

She sure looks engrossed in that book! This is Lucy...she's from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and another one of my purchases from that was a fun day! I did this card for this weeks challenge at KK. The challenge was to use kraft cs. I've never been one to use too much kraft paper until recently and I love it. You can do anything with it! I paired the cs with PP from Emma's Shoppe collection from Paper Crate which I also used to paper piece a little with. I used some ribbon from Michael's and punched out some flowers with my flower trio die-namics from MFT. The buttons are from my stash. I added some golden highlights to Lucy's hair with my buttermilk Spica pen although they're not really noticeable in the picture. Weird that I even did her as a blond, I rarely do

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Paisley Pixie

Welcome back! Today's card features Paisley Pixie from Stamping Bella's most recent release. Isn't she cute! My photos unfortunately never do the colours of the cards any justice, this one is so bright and pretty IRL. I used the Stella and Rose Hattie papers from MME and the CS is Tempting Turquoise and More Mustard from Stampin'Up! The crochet lace is something I picked up at a fabric store close to home and the little rhinestones are from Dollarama.

Well, I'm off to collapse on the couch now. I have my first head cold in a long while and feel less than great...

Come back soon!

Miss you a latte

This card was done for a challenge at MFT- Denim and Bling! I used my Miss You a Latte a la mode stamp from MFT ;) and some pp from the Citrus Stack from DCWV. I had to use a denim look paper because I don't have any real denim. The bling is added in the form of some blue rhinestones, an orange rhinstone brad and a clear Atyou Spica pen that unfortunatley doesn't show up in the picture... I also used my Flower Trio and Leaf Trio Die-namic and a Scallop Die-namic (currently sold out) both from MFT. Theres lots of paper piecing on her outfit, she's even wearing jeans now! I pulled out my paper crimper hasn't seen the light of day in a very long time! I got to add some of the baker's twine that I recently picked up too.

I did it!

I made my Dad's Birthday card! I have to say it was pretty painless I remembered that I had picked up Birthday Cake Overdose Miles from Kraftin' Kimmie at Scrapfest last month. I don't have a lot of masculine stamps, but this totally works. I also got to use some of the Spotted Owl PP from Jillibean Soup that I picked up there too. I decided to use this weeks SSSC115 for this card.

I used my Dainty Dots border die-namic from MFT and punched out some of the numbers (63) from the PP and used them in place of the embellishment. I made the icing on the cake a little glossy with my clear glaze pen, but it doesn't show up in the picture :(
