I used my new nestabilities for the image on this one. I really want to get the set that resembles the top note die from stampin up, but they are always out of stock :( I do like this one too though :) I ran the red layer through my wizard with my swiss dots cuttlebug folder. I put it on backwards because the paper is white core and all the dots were white on the other side, and I didn't really care for that look.
stamps: elzybells, su warmest regards
ink: ruby red craft
accessories: copic markers, ribbon from my stash, stickles, nesties

This one was stamped on white and colored with copic markers and the outfit was pieced on. The little buttons are a little larger than I'd like but they were the smallest that I had and I really, really wanted to use some buttons!
The ribbon is from my stash, I think it was leftover from a SEI class I took at CKC. The scallop punch is by Martha Stewart... love her edge punches!!

For this card I stamped the baby image twice. Once onto blush blossom paper and once onto the DCWV flower paper. I trimmed out the entire image in blush and layered it onto the bard base, then cut out only the outfit on the flowery paper and added some rhinestones for the buttons. This card is one of three I am sending her, so the other two will be coming over the next few days.
stamps: unknown. if you know the source of this baby, please let me know so i can list that :)
ink: palette noir, rose red
paper: DCWV patterned paper, SU whisper white, certain celery

Onto my card...
A new friend of mine asked if I could make some Holiday invites for her to send to her family. I know there aren't super Christmassey, but I really think they reflect who she is. She just recently bought a log home, and installed brass switch plates with pine cones and branches hammered into them... they look just like the Peaceful Wishes OSW I did, only they are solid brass and not cranberry and thyme. I really hope she likes this design. And if not, I can always just put a new vellum layer on and stamp a wintry sentiment.
stamps: su peaceful wishes, su
ink: su true thyme, cranberry crisp, encore gold
paper: su true thyme, cranberry crisp, unknown gold metallic and vellum

Michelle (aka DD alum, flaxychick) has BLOG CANDY and some fabbo inspiration on her blog Twisted Chick Creations. Michelle has been an inspiration to me since I first saw her stuff on SCS... long long before I dared to post... or **gasp** even upload! LOL She creates adorable projects and is super creative... plus she has some fantastic stuff in her store Paper Addictions. I love how the stamps and papers match! .... now where's my credit card?
.... and did I mention she is having a sale???

Back to my card... My friend Krys gave me this old pack of SU designer paper because... well let's face it K, you don't stamp! I started coloring this witch purple and remembered the paper, so I went with those colors. the main image is popped up with dimensionals.
I put some black studio g glitter glue on her boots as well as on the brads. I really like this glitter because it's not too glitzy but it sure is shimmery and purty!
I also spaced the brads a little funky.
stamps: from pattyb... not really sure :)
ink: stazon colored with copics even though she told me not to :)
paper: pumpkin pie, basic black, old su dsp
accessories: black glitter glue from studio g, black brads

I hope to clear off the french board soon... it's really loaded up with stuff. But that's a small part of a bigger picture. If you've been reading for any time you know of the challenge it is for me to clean this room up. Baby steps, right? The problem with that theory is everywhere I take a baby step twenty minutes later it looks like a hurricane hit. Who am I kidding... it's five minutes.
How do you do it? How do you keep your stamping space tidy?

It was love at first site. I think this punch works amazingly with this technique. I chose this orange paper because it was a scrap from these boxes that I made for the last Ft Meade MD swap. And besides, orange is an amazing color! The card base (layers and all) was pulled from the french board. I made it last halloween but never did anything with it. I have some bellas on it in my gallery at SCS. I have no idea where the black and white gingham is from. I was on a card in a ribbon box. I was thinking about what ribbon to use when I spotted it up on the top shelf. I pulled out my YR07 Copic marker and colored away. I love coloring my ribbons. You really get a lot out of your ribbons this way :)
stamps: stampin bella
paper: su only orange, dcwv

It's covered with Stampin' Up paper from a Simply Scrapping kit. The flowers came all glitterified like that and also included the matching brads. I forget where the washer is from. It was in a jar with other metal embellishments that I have.

I love this DCWV card base with this bella. I will be so sad when I am out. I save them for special cards. Since I stitched directly on the card base, I have a quarter sheet of white on the back to hide the stitching.
On last years Holiday paper from SU, I took my Creative Memories wavy trimmer and sloped the one edge. I wanted to test my ability on steering LOL
Bella is colored with Copic and Stampin' Up markers. The felt flowers are by Making Memories and Stampin' Up and the brad is Stampin' Up.

This is a Prima tube (thanks Tracy!!) that I altered for the SBS I am going ot this weekend in Ft Meade. I've been to swaps with those crazy Ft Meade ladies before and they are a LOT of fun so I can't wait to stamp on their home turf! My friend Kristyn is going with me and I am certain she will love the Ft Meade ladies too!
This was made with some retired SU paper and embies and is filled with... well, I can't tell you!!! :P

I really don't know what I was thinking when I made this goofy card! I do like how it looks closed though. The opening is at the blue scalloped layer and Bella flips up with it... so it's a tri fold card. The *celebrate* sentiment also lifts with Bella. I think I'd like it better if I had attached that to the card base and only Bella lifted with the flap. She is colored with Copic markers and her dress is covered with stickles.

The first ribbon technique I want to share is this simple french board style tag pocket. To achieve this look, all you need to do is cross two (or more) ribbons adhering them at the ends only.
- photo corners, wrap a bit of ribbon around the corner of a photo attaching the ends to the back
- knots, use a loose double knot for another look
- tie on a group of ribbon with a longer srtip of ribbon (as shown on the letter D here)
And here is my completed project from this SEI class at CKC. I love these word books!
