The Prom

I first saw the template for this dress on Patty's Stamping Spot (Patty Bennett).   I thought it was adorable and decided to make a spring dress out of it.  The dress reminds me of a dress I wore to my prom when I was in high school.  Of course, it's been years since I've been able to wear a strapless dress (LOL).  The dress was punched out using the Scallop… Read More »

I’m a Gothic Girl!

Today's card is for the Just my Sketches Blog.  Check out what the other design team members have made – fabulous cards! Isn't this girl just the cutest?  I bought this stamp a while ago from Stampotique.  The main image was stamped using Black Stazon and then colored in using Blush Blossom, Bravo Burgundy and Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Markers.  The sentiment is computer generated.

The Old and the New

A couple of posts ago, I stated how much I hate to use my designer series paper.  I tend to hoard it.  This is the first time I've used Parisian Breeze since I bought it.  I thought I would use it with one of my older but goody stamp set, Heartfelt Thanks. Today's card is also using Sketch SC224 from Splitcoast Stampers.  I stamped the main image in Brown Stazon… Read More »

   I used the stamp Christmas Rose from a Christmas Cardinal Stamp Set to make my dogwoods.   Don't you think they look a little like dogwoods??  The dogwoods are out around our area and they are beautiful!  I was going to take some pictures to share but it's been raining – maybe tomorrow.  Recipe: Stamp Set:  Christmas Cardinal Paper:  Whisper White, Natural White, Certainly Celery Ink:  Black Stazon Accessories:  Stampin'… Read More »

An Egg-cellent Easter

I made these holders for my grandchildren, David 10, Felicia 8 and Rachel 2 1/2.  I bet you can guess who will receive which candy holder.  They are like the ones I made for Teacher Appreciation Week.   After making the 1st two candy holders, the next 3 went pretty fast. I didn't really want to give the kids candy (or a lot of candy) so I thought the Hershey bars… Read More »
