Princess Kitty

I'm really not into yellow lately, but here's another card. It just seemed to match with the red cardstock and glitter. This Princess Kitty is such a cute die.
I made her crown with silver foil cs and put red glitter in the hearts. I took this photo in the late afternoon with hardly any sun and somehow the silver ended up looking like gold. I used the treading water punch and threaded ribbon through the holes.

Well, this weekend is Scrap Pink and I'll be at the store along with Jean. Sizzix has a Scrap Pink kit that is full with different dies and a part of the sales from this kit goes to the Susan G Komen Foundation. October is breast cancer awareness month.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you on Saturday!

Here's Lorry

I was downstairs this afternoon cutting some kits for Saturday and ended up making a card. This is from one of the new Hello Kitty dies that I bought today. This is Lorry, one of Hello Kitty's friends. I also used the Hello Kitty circle shapes die for the background. I can't remember the name of the die.

Here's a closer up photo of Lorry. This was one of the easiest dies to layer.
Well, thanks for stopping by! I'll be posting another card tomorrow.

Hello kitty

So excited that these dies are finally here! I've been wanting to scrap some layouts with Miss Kitty for an album and make some pillows too.
I know, this picture is kind of crooked but I had to work with little light in the room and this was the best angle to catch the light. But, these dies fit perfectly on a card front.
I put glitter on the flower petals. And you can see the glitter here. Also used some Hero Arts gemstones for the bling and a Hero Arts flower. Well, I'll be showing a bunch of items made with these new dies on The Joy of Crafting show in November.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

Almost forgot...

I made these other cards and haven't posted them. BTW, most of you know that I also post for the store. So if you visit the store blog-o, the same samples are normally posted there too.This first card was something that my husband challenged me to work with. I had to use the Cuttlebug embossing folder bird call. This is actually the 2nd card I made out of this folder. I didn't care for the colors that I used on the first card, so I changed it to these colors - pink, red and green. Here's a closer look at the card front.I glittered the bird and it looks so pretty IRL. Here's another card I made using the snowflake embossing folder for the background.
The snowflake die is one of the new dies from Cuttlebug. First you cut it out and then you emboss it. This card looks better IRL too.
Well, thanks for stopping by and see you in another week since that seems to be how I've been posting lately.

Trick or treater

Last week as I was going through my piles of scrap papers, I came across an unfinished box that I made from a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock. I don't even remember where I saw this but it was from sometime last year. So I finished it and made something.I just picked up this die from the store and thought it was perfect for this box. It wasn't hard to piece together as it looks. The black in the pumpkin is actually black glitter. I know it's hard to see because of the way that I took this photo but there was no sunlight today.
The deets:
Sizzix Halloween die, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Fiskars treading water punch, Spellbinders nestabilities in oval scallop and classic, Worldwin cardstock, DCWV cardstock, black glitter and black ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

Back again

Today was spent partly filming Ben Franklin Craft's tv show, The Joy of Crafting. It will air in November. If you're planning to make Christmas projects and need some ideas, the show airs every Sunday on OC16 at 6:30 pm. It's always fun to meet other crafty women on the show.

I didn't get to post the other cards that I made earlier in the week so here goes...

This is a cute little gift card holder that I embossed with the spiderweb embossing folder from Cuttlebug. When I first bought this folder, I really didn't think that I would be using it as much as I have been. I just love this new clear stamp set from Penny Black. The circles were cut using the Spellbinder's large and petite classic circles. I kind of messed up the coloring on this second card. So I tried to cover up my mistakes with glitter, but made it worst. This stamp is also from the same clear stamp set. It's called "Trick or Treat". On this card, I embossed the background with Sizzix texturz set #6.

I'll be back this weekend with the rest of the cards. Have a great evening everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Has it been that long?

Well hello again... didn't realize that the last time I posted was on August 25th. I've been doing make-it take-its every Saturday and spending most of my free time cutting and die cutting out the supplies that are needed. I'll be at the Navy Exchange this Saturday with Jean from Dandelion Designs from 2-3 pm. I'm pretty sure that anyone can come to this food festival since it will be in the parking lot under the big blue tent.

Here's one of the cards we made last week Saturday at J's. I really enjoyed seeing everyone again.
We stamped the background on kraft paper using one of the new wood block print Christmas stamps in white Memories ink. The bird and flowers is a Sizzix bigz die. I die cutted all the pieces for the kits except the bird and flower.

The pink polka dot paper is from the DCWV Butterflies and Blossoms paper pack.

This was our 2nd card that we made. We stamped the owl and broom on kraft paper, and see that black paper with the pukas. That was cut out using my Cricut machine. The cartridge that I used was Stretch Your Imagination. Well, it took me over 3 hours to cut enough for everyone. I have the old 12" machine and could cut only 2 cards at a time.Here's a closer look at the card. I stuck dimensionals under the owl. All stamps are clear stamps and cardstock from Hero Arts. I have a bunch of cards to share and will post more tomorrow. Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by.
