Upsy Daisy

I love this SU! Image Upsy Daisy! It is one of the few solid stamps that I have, because usually I love to color. What I did though is color my stamp. I used my SU! Markers to create multiple colors on one stamp and then breathed some (of my) hot air on the image to make sure it is moist and stamp....voila, multi colored image!

  • cardstock: SU! Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery
  • ink: SU! Markers Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Garden Green
  • accessories: oval punch, scallop oval punch and certainly celery ribbon
This card is very simple, but I love the way it came of my favorites!

Thanks for looking!

girly bot

As promised...I have my girly version of a robot card. Again using Lots of Bots set from SU! and new in colors.
  • stamps: SU Lots of Bots
  • cardstock: white, SU! basic grey and melon mambo
  • DSP: SU! razzleberry
  • markers: SU! rich razzleberry, melon mambo, garden green, going grey
  • accessories: misc. small flower punch & brad, SU! black 1/4 grosgrain ribbon, SU! scallop border punch, dimensionals
In this set this image actually comes with an I'm sorry message, but when I mounted my stamps, I cut off the sentiments and mounted them on the side of my blocks. I decided not to make an I'm sorry card, but used the get well sentiment from one of the other bots.
I think I did okay with my "girly" design, I proved to my daughter robots are not for boys only!
Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Human!

As promised I am sharing a card I made with my new goodies! I stole away from the family this morning and was able to make this cute card.
I made it for a boy birthday, so I wanted to keep it fairly simple. This cute set is Lots of Bots (page 82 of catty) I used new "in color" SU! cardstock... crushed curry and dusty durango on top of a base of basic grey which I used a versa stamp to create the screw and nut background image. This year SU! also has coordinating "in color" markers to match the cardstock and stamp pads, so I used them to color the bot in...crushed curry, dusty durango and bermuda bay!
I could not find my metal gromets that I wanted to use, so I used metal brads for accents. The bot is cut and popped up on dimensionals.
Well, I hope you like. Tomorrow I will have a card that is a "girly robot" as my daughter told me that robots were "boy" things!
Thanks for looking!
Happy Stampin'!

Birthday Bella!

My sister Kim's birthday is July 4th. This year I decided to NOT make her a red, white and blue card...I bet she has had enough of those!

I love bella stamps, this one is cakeabella and she is so cute!

I ALWAYS use Stampin' Up! cardstock, it is so nice and thick and comes in so many colors, this one is Ruby Red. The DSP is also from SU, it is textured and the cherries shine. Unfortunately this DSP is retired, but there are so many new choices in the new catalog!
The sentiment is from SU! set Heard from the Heart (page 142 of new catty)

I then used my SU markers to color the image, I did use 2 markers for her hair and 2 for her apron, I did not like my original color choices so I had to color over them to make a new color. I like the results.

To accessorise this bella, I used a SU! Playground Designer button (pg 181 of catty) and some hemp twine. Popped up on a glue dot and all set!

I really liked the final card! Before I could give it to my sister, the kids knocked it off of the desk, ran it over with the computer chair and then the baby tried to eat off the button! I think Kim loved it anyways!

Thanks for looking!

Another Mother's Day card

This card was made for my mother in law for Mother's Day. I realize that mothers day was like a month and a half ago, but I just downloaded my camera!
I used the same cardstock as for my last card, but I used flowers and brads on this one. I really love the tempting turquoise color, it is becoming one of my favorites. I never would have thought to pair it with red, but I pulled the colors from the designer paper because I loved it. Turqoise and red are one of my new fav combos.
Thanks for looking!

Lovely Birds

This is the card I made my mother for Mother's Day. I love these little birds. They are from SU! Cheep Talk stamp set. The paterned paper is from SU! Pink Flamingo set. I decided to pull some colors from the paper to make the card. Cardstock is Pretty in Pink and Tempting Turquoise. Accessories include Real Red Grosgrain 5/8" ribbon and Eyelet border punch. Everything on this card is Stampin' Up!
To add some dimension I stamped the blue bird a second time on white cardstock and then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.
I love the final card, and I think my mom did too!
Thanks for looking!
