Hello Creative Friends!!

Welcome to MFP September Stamp Release.
This month were release this beautiful 3x4 stamp set:

Isn't it beautiful!!! I just had to create this card with the balloons in the sky. It was my second thought. Come back Sunday to see just how I made a Christmas card. You'll love both cards. So I've add a sneak peak of my card =) Now for today's card I created my sky by die cutting my clouds and layering them on my card with a strip of waish tape just how I wanted them to show up. I have a little clips of this in my video below. I used my tumble glass by Tim Holtz. I colored my image in using Sharpies and Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I layer it on strips of black card stock and then onto a card base. I truly enjoy creating this card. I hope that you did too.

Back- 2- School

Happy Monday To You All!!

Today I'm here to share this clean and simple back 2 school card. I  created this card using gamsol and colored pencils. I haven't use gamsol in a long time and I wanted to give it a try again. I did create a video for you all. I do have some tips as well. I'll share that later in the post. I wanted to go for a clean and simple look. I started by using my score board to score this embossed box for my apple. Now I have to say I didn't do so well with the scoring so I created a temple which you'll see in the video. After creating my box I stamped my apple and sentiment from Mark's Finest Paper: Lesson Learned .  I completed my card by adding some bakers twine and a gem in the center. 

Tip: When using gamsol add a heavy layer of color so you can achieve a rich look and what have sticks on your image. I decide to leave the lines because some apples have them.

Yesterday we celebrated my 51 Birthday!!!

 I'm so happy I was here to celebrate this special day with my mom. We even tricked her into thinking she was not having a party. Picked up some cute and oh so yummy petit fours cakes. Oh they were so amazing that my daughter wants them for her birthday.  And you know what she will get them. lol I love them too and because we had cake for the first 2 weeks I think its perfect. You see I celebrated my 30th birthday the first week, my mom this week, and my daughter next week. So you can see we have had a lot of cake. With the petit fours we not eating too much cake. 

So I wanted to stop in and share the card I made for her. I start out by using Mark's Finest Papers: Great Flower. I did generation stamping using Studio Calico: Coral Bay and Emerald City inks. I stamped my sentiment using Versa Fine: Black Onyx ink. Add some gems to finish off my card.

Good Morning & Happy Friday,

Today I wanted to pop in and share my SN@P/PROJECT LIFE Part One of Jan.  I say part one becasue I'm still working on =) Jan. I know I know the year is almost gone. I don't know how some of you fly through your pockets so fast. But I've also had lots of highs in lows in life and just a given this a try. So I'm tossing with the idea of should I call this  SN@P or Project Life? See I'm using different brands. My album is Simple Story but I'm also using Project Life items as well. So as you can see I'm using a little bite of both. In my album you'll see that I not only use Simple Story Pockets but found that Project Life pockets/Journal Pages work as well. I found this out by shopping at Micheal's and asking could I try the pockets and journal the Sn@p album. I was given he go head and I was so excited to find out it works! You may be wondering what the journal pages is here's a look:

These pages is 6x8 which fits perfectly into my Sn@p album. You'll learn that the tabs hangout but you can cut them off and use them onto other creations. In my video you'll see just how I used the pages. You can find these journal pages as Micheal's exclusive! 

Well that's all I have for you all.
Here's a look at my first page.

To see move watch my video.

Well thats all I have for you all.

We Flock Together!!!

Good Morning Crafty Peeps
Today I have a clean and simple card. Today card features Mark's Finest Papers: Crows Stamp set. I wanted to go for a clean and simple look using these whimsical birds. I created this card using basic card stock, pens, sequins and some fun glitter mist by Tattered Angels. I was waiting on my Wink Stella Glitter Brush to arrive and it hadn't so I used Tattered Angels: sliver glimmer mist. I love how the birds have add sparkle. Be sure to watch my video below to see just how I add my mist.

Panda Fun

Good Morning Crafty Friends!!

Today I have a fun card created for a swap over at MFP Ning Site. This card is all about Pandas!!! I really love the way this card turned out. I started by using Paper Trey Ink black and green card stock. I stamp MFP Panda stamp set to make my own background paper. I covered it with vellum and use staples to hold it together. I later used some panda themed ribbon and cotton tread. For the cotton tread I used a sharpie to make the green marks. I fished this card off with gold gems.
