Christmas In July

Merry Christmas (In July)

It’s that time over at Scrap ‘n Stamp, and we have been busy creating some amazing projects to inspire you through out the week.  They have an amazing sale going on right now, and LOTS of blog candy too!  Go check it out and make sure you go back each day for more great ideas!!!


I created this card for the gallery (the DT has decided to bombard the gallery with all kinds of Christmas projects).  I used a Dreamweaver Stencil, Versa Magic Inks, transparent Embossing Paste, and glitter to create my Christmas Tree, and complimented it with some Mimosa papers (I know not very Christmas, but it worked) and Core’dinations cardstock.  Although nontraditional, I think it turned out great!
Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!



A Couple More Father’s Day Cards

12 06 2009

I told you I had, had quite a bit of time to craft even though I did not have time to post…. Well I have some more time to post so here are some more Father’s Day cards for you.

For these cards I used digi stamps from Dustin Pike, along with some more basic Grey papers, and Stampin’ Up! Markers.  The images are printed on Glossy cardstock and the image just outlined to add colour.  I left these cards simple and let the patterned paper do the embellishing!  I think any dad would be happy to get one of these cuties for Father’s Day!!



Hope you like these!

Until Next Time,

Happy Crafting!


Father’s Day Card

11 06 2009

Hey, I’m back again with another card…

she;llie3This card is part of my collection of Father’s Day cards that I have for sale… It has been so much fun designing cards for this special day!  I used Basic Grey patterned paper, as well as SU! cardstock and stamp.  I coloured the truck in with SU! markers.  The rectandles are cut out using the Nestability Deckled Rectangles by Spellbinders which I bought at Scrap ‘n Stamp. Lastly I used the Spellbinders foil behind the truck to give that chrome look.

I like the way this turned out so much that this may even be the card that Taryn gives her Daddy for his first Father’s day! (It helps that he is a big ‘car guy’)

Well until next time, Happy Crafting,


life keeps getting in the way!!

Hope you like em!

A Birthday Card For A Friend

15 05 2009

deanna-birthdaySo here is a cute little card I made for a friends upcoming birthday!  I chose this image to represent the three of us crazy ‘monkey’s’ in my family!!!  If I had to choose, I would be the giraffe, Rob the elephant and Taryn the monkey in the tree!!  The card is super quick and simple, but looks great (especially in person).
I printed the image from Dustin Pike’s blog I believe it is one of his colouring pages.  I used my ink jet printer and printed on Satrdream paper which I bought at Scrap ‘n Stamp, the ink does not dry on this paper so I embossed the image using black embossing powder.  Next I coloured the image using my SU! markers.  I mounted the image on some Bazzill Bling paper.  I added a strip of the stardream paper behind my image and mounted the entire thing onto my card base.  I added a few Denim kaiser Craft Pearls to finish the card off.  I think my friend will see the humour in the image!  Happy 40th Birthday Deanna!

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting,
