Love Bites

That's the phrase that comes with this fabulous stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie called Fred and Ginger. Although you would probably assume that this is a Hallowe'en card (and a fine one it would make), it's actually a birthday card for my friend. She's really into "goth" stuff and I knew she'd appreciate the vampire. What's funny about this card is all the paper I used was given to me by her. I don't own a single sheet of Hallowe'en paper...That's hard to believe...I'll have to remedy that. Anyway, there's lots of glitz and sparkle, but sadly, it doesn't show up too much in this picture. The bats on the BG paper have shiney red eyes too...spooky...Have a happy and safe Hallowe'en!

Flower Garden

Hi everyone! I did this card for my Mother's birthday which is on Friday. I actually got it in the mail really early and she's had it for about a 3 weeks already. I've just finally uploaded it onto the computer...sad how long that I used Flower Garden from Stamping Bella for this card. It was my first time using it. I tried something different with this card too, I used the Faber Castell Gelatos to colour them. It's kind of like watercolouring. They have a great texture. Again, I wish my photography skills were better, becaue honestly, this card looked much better in person. The colours seem a little "off" in the picture. Anyhow, enjoy!

Uptown Sushi Girls Chelsea and Lauren

Aren't they awesome eating thier little sushi? I made this card for my friend that's leaving me for the next 3 months (sad face) to go to Florida. The sentiment sort of worked for the occassion, "Miso" want to see you", but I added "when you get back" to the inside...I really wish I had mad photographic skills because my pictures really don't do the colours any justice. There's lots of shimmer and sparkle and it's barely noticeable...Anyway, the stamp is a newer one from Stamping Bella and the papers are Circa 1928 from Cosmo Cricket...Enjoy!

Spencer the Bookworm

Hi Stampy friends. It's been a while hasn't it? I had packed up all my stampy stuff for a while (I don't have a room to leave it set up in) and just got into it again today. In honour of National Card Making Day and the fact that I need about 4 cards this month for various occassions.

May I present Spencer the Bookworm. He's from Stamping Bella and I made him for my nephew's birthday coming up very soon...
