Better Late Than Never

Hi all!!

Kim here, again, and today I'm posting a little later than normal.
That's ok, right?

I had this idea in my head for a few days. 
What can I do with all the little scraps of ribbon that are in my mason jar?
The striped panel on the card is just scraps wrapped around a piece of cardstock and secured with ATG tape. Cool idea, right? 

I pulled out my Elzybells stamps to go with the colorful and playful ribbons. 

Hope you are having a great day!

Love You Forever

Hi all!

Can you believe January is almost over? 
It's time for Valentine cards and lots of pinks and reds.

I want to start out with a CAS and pretty Valentine card. 
It can also be used as a general "I Love You" card for someone you care about.

I don't know what it is about polka dots and white space, but they really make me happy!

Make sure to take some time to pull out your old supplies and create something.

Denim Blue

Hello there! Maria back with another cute card to share with you using a great image by Queen Kat Designs! This one is from The Willow Lane Collection and is called Sweet Denim Blue.

Isn't this the cutest?  Perfect for any little boy's birthday!

Thanks for stopping in this week and check out my cards!

That's all for now!

Hello there!  Today I have another card to share with you.  This one is a birthday card I made this weekend for my friend who turned 40!  

I pulled out some Webster's Pages paper that I had in my stash. I don't know when this was released but I'm sure it's been sitting around for a little bit of time never used!  Turns out it it worked perfectly for my card.  The numbers were pieces of chipboard I had and I added Stazon ink and glitter.  The ribbon is a piece i found hanging out, the flip side of the ribbon is actually polka dots but I wanted the solid side so I flipped it.

So go find some really cool pattern paper in your stash and make a card, you'd be surprised how cool and simple you can go.

Take care!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Day

Hey there Stamping With The Oldies fans!  Maria here this week with some cards to share!

Today I'm sharing a card using this great girl image from Queen Kat Designs.  I haven't inked her up and had her for a while so here she is.  This is from the Willow Lane Collection and is called Mother May I.

I went through my stash for pattern papers and found the doilies so now I must use those.  I thought this came out very cute for a little girl birthday card or just a fun all occasion card!

NOW be sure to dig through your stash and use what you have!  C'mon you can do it!

Thanks for stopping by!

 Eva here with a card for you today. I made this card a while ago, but I really like the kraft and pink together and how this turned out, so I wanted to share it here. The beautiful stamp is from Unity.
I hope everyone has had a great start on the new year. For me it has been super busy, but fun too. Here in NC the weather has been spring like for the past few days, so I have been having a lot of fun playing with the kids outside. Today however I am going to spend some time playing with my stamps and hopefully make some Valentine's Day cards.
Thank you for stopping by!

Playing the Waiting Game

I'm trying to patiently wait for a delivery. I'm not that good at patience, though. So, I thought I'd share a little project with you while I wait. I'm hoping that getting involved in something will trigger the delivery!

I made this card from a kit created by a friend of mine. While I can't take credit for the design (which I adore), I can take credit for the coloring. Yep, copic markers are some of my best friends!

I'm not wishing this month away, but I am a fan of Valentine's. Just because you don't have a sweetheart doesn't mean you can't celebrate. What are your plans? I love myself, so I'm thinking I'll treat myself to dinner and a movie. Maybe I'll do a practice run before then. Hahaha!!

Hope your January is still shiny and new!

A week later...

Here we are, one week into a brand, shiny-new year. How's yours shaping up? I'm still working on getting my expectations, goals, and checkpoints established, but it's progress! Here's a little project I whipped up. Now, I can't take credit for the design, this was a wonderful card kit from a past design teammate of mine.

The cute young lady is from the Greeting Farm, and I think the words stamp is Stampin' Up (but it's been so long I could be wrong!). I colored this lass with my Copic markers (which I have fallen back deeply and madly in love with).

Here's a little close-up. You can barely make out the glitter I added to her heart on her dress, and the ruffles around her shoes. That paper with the hearts on it is flocked! I love flocking! I puffy heart love it. It is my 'glitter' because you all know, I can't deal with glitter.

Ok, it's time for you to get started on wonderful spring projects. The big chocolate holiday is next, then we're on to St. Patrick's day and Easter. Hope you get a little kick out of this card!

The Chill of Winter

Hi everyone!

Today is my last day to post for the week

and since it's so cold outside I made a snowman card.

Set is from PaperTreyInk.

I enjoy playing with this little guy.

The snowflakes above the sentiment are just doodles made with a white gel pen. 

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Well Behaved Women....

Happy Thursday!

I'm so glad this is a short school/work week. 

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the weekend!

The above card is a CASE of one I found in my stash. I used the same color scheme, basic layout, and image, but improved on it a little. 

This sentiment always makes me laugh. 

I couldn't take a picture of my old card since it was falling apart. It was one I made with no purpose and didn't have anyone in mind to send it to. This time, I do. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

New Format for 2013

Hi all!

With the start of the NEW YEAR

we are starting a new format here on the blog.

Each week, one of the team members will take a turn,
for that entire week, 
and post as little or as much as they want.

Each member can choose their own theme, challenge, or just post whatever she wants.

The goal is to create using our supplies. 

My card above was created with some Authentique patterned paper and punch out embellies.

Stop by tomorrow and I'll have another card for you all.
