Outline Christmas

I just love Outlines stamps. Here is an ornament and a card I made using stamps by Outlines. The directions for the ornament is on the Outlines site. Both of these projects use a ton of embossing powder.

A Drive By Card Lift

I was at this wonderful blog The Shamrock Stamper last week and saw a lovely card that I decided to copy. I made some changes and added lots of glitz(which does not show in this photo).

I used my Nestabilities for all the layers. The stamps are Inkadinkadoo and Studio G. The snowflakes are by Punch Bunch.

Hanukkah Card

For some reason I just can't get motivated to make my Hanukkah cards this year. I think one reason is there are so few exciting Hanukkah stamps. I got the new set of Papertrey Hanukkah stamps. They are very traditional. I do like them but for some reason I am not inspired. This is one card I made using these beautiful stamps.

I'm Famous

Well just kidding. But I am featured in the Newsletter. Click on the link to check out their site. The newsletter includes several projects, reviews and a vintage image download. I hope you check them out.

Where is Saturday Image Bonus?

Don't forget Saturday Image Bonus has moved to my other site Clearly Vintage. Today's theme is children.

Dreaming of the Orient

The theme at Wednesday Stamper this week is exotic places. I have always dreamed of a trip to the Orient. Here is my interpretation of the theme. For some reason the scan is not showing very clearly here but if you click on the card it is extremely clear.

Christmas Tag

This is a tag I made for the Created by Hand challenge Chistmas Tag. I have also included the image I used for you to download.

A Cuttlebug Christmas Wreath

Here is an easy Christmas card I put together. I used a scalloped circle to make this wreath card. I punched the scallop circle, then I punched a circle slightly off center. I then used a cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss it. The background is another Cuttlebug folder.

Michaela's House Ornament

This is an ornament made from paper that my 7 year old daughter made. We got the pattern off theMeridith(Better Housekeeping) website. She dripped liquid applique on it to make it look like snow. We made the tree with the Martha Stewart branch punch.

Snowman Jar

I got this idea from this month's Cloth Paper Scissor's Magazine. I made this for Mixed Media Monday. For the head I used a Styrofoam ball. The eyes and face are black brads. The nose is copper foil. I covered the ball in white glue and them sprinkled Mica Snow Glitter from Martha Stewart on it. Inside the jar are some antique buttons and pearls. I used antique lace to accent the jar and some ribbon from AC Moore. The hat is a top from a Prima Flower jar and the hearts and balls are stick pins from Heidi Grace.

New Christmas Card

I found the star on this card at Michael's. The paper is from a stack by MME and the stamps are Walmart.

I made the dots on the brad with a white gel pen by Inkessentials.

New Moo

The theme at Make a Moo this week is to use something new. A new stamp or technique. This is a technique that Femmy explained on her site. I took it a step further and used it for my whole Moo. I used Versamark an covered my whole surface with it. I then sprinkle SU Vintage Verdigris embossing powder and heated it. I repeated this process five times. I then put Versamark on a stamp (Walmart Clear Stamp) and stamped the surface. It created this lovely debossed look. I then lightly inked the surface to bring out the design more. It is a wonderful effect. I may use this in a Christmas card.

Keep in Touch

This week at Wednesday Stamper the theme is Telephone. I got to use one of my favorite stamps and old telephone from The Moon Rose. I love to make collages of stamps for background papers. It was so much fun to gather all my stamps to make the theme of the card. The center stamp is one of my stamps from my stamp line Clearly Vintage. I just love these two girls holding hand and thought this would make a great Keep in Touch card. The other stamps are by Paper Impressions(Ink Bottle),Serendipity Stamps(ink spots,postcards) and Ann-ticipations(ink pen). I colored the images and background with Copic markers. The edge detail in a border punch by Martha Stewart.

Wishes Do Come True

This is for the Crazy Amigo Challenge Blue and Red.

This is a Moo card. The image is by Loast Coast Designs. I colored her with Copic Markers.

New Tim Holtz Stickles

So of course I had to try the new Tim Holtz Stickles. It is more like glass glitter and gives your projects a unique look. My only disappointment was that there isn't as much of the glass glitter pieces as I would like in the glue. I made this card using three colors of Stickles; Fired Brick,Antique Linen and Peeled Paint. I stamped the image with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I then added the stickles. The stamps are Just for Fun and Studio G.

Christmas Stamps from Walmart

So everyone at Splitcoast Stampers has been talking about these clear stamps at Walmart. Of course I had to go check them out. Which is always a bad thing. I went and purchased three sets of the Christmas clear stamps but that wasn't all. I ended up buying 3 movies from the 5 dollar bin and three Nintentdo DS games that were on sale. Walmart and Target are like money pits. I ended up buying all the things I did not know I needed.

Anyway, I made this card using several of the sets of stamps. It worked wonderfully for the theme at Wednesday Stamper this week Angel. The stamps do stamp extremely well. I used Versafine ink. There is lots of glitter on this card but it did not show up on the scan.

Monogram Card

This is a card I made with my Just Rite stamper. At first I was going to make a card for my husband to use as Thank You cards, but of course it evolved into something for me. I just have the hardest time with cards for men.

New Memory Box Stamps

Here are two Christmas cards using my new Memory Box stamps. I just love their stamps. They are so simple but make great cards.

The stamps are Studio G. I also used my new Spellbinders Labels One.


This is a quick card I put together for my daughter's teacher. It is a total copy of a few cards I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. It is very simple to make. You use punches for the eyes and nose. The stamp is a Studio G.
