Tuesday Template 11-30-10

This week's sketch was inspired by wanting to play with a more masculine stamp set. I love this new set called Bad to the Bone. It reminds me of my Mastiff with all his wrinkles. I love Bulldogs and if they did not have such health issues I would have one. So here is my Valentine/sketch card. I even took a photo of the inside.
If you get a chance to play be sure to send me a link and I would love to check it out.
Happy creating till next time.

Sharing Ideas

Since I am terrible about sharing ideas and pictures of things I do other than cards. This is a coffee cup filled with hot cocoa, marshmallow, sprinkles and a candy cane.I thought I would take this opportunity to let you see what I created for our school holiday shoppe:

Also, I participated in a Christmas Bag swap and this was what I created:

Tuesday Template 11-23-10

Sorry, I missed last week's post. Life has been getting away from me lately. I wish I could say I was on a far away vacation or taking a spa treatment. But alas I was just being a Mom, Wife, Sister and all the other roles that I must play. I was hoping this holiday season would be different then others put it is starting out exactly the same. The running has started and the endless days are ahead of me. Plus, I decided to help out with a holiday fundraiser for our school. This last part have been enjoying though.

Simple and sweet little card to say hello.
Growing up my Dad and Mom would call me pumpkin as a term of endearment. I think that maybe where all my love for Fall started. I really can not think of anything about this season that I do not love. My yard is filled with crisp brown maple leaves, which I need to rake but that is okay. I love seeing the colors change and then to see them fall. Oh I will we could just skip winter and have an extra Fall!

Friend - Tea for Two

So it is the end of a long day and I can not think of anything to say, no chatter, or quick whit. So, I guess I will get into the details of the card.

This is the caboodles cardstock collection, I just love how it goes so well with the Copics.

Tea for Two is another set that I think I will end up purchasing. See my friend let me stamp off a few images and now I believe I have no more left. Boo Who, well I guess I need to own if for myself. {smile}

Get Whale

Not really pleased with how this one turned out but I will continue to use this set since it is so stinking cute. I might have more samples done with this set.

Originally, this card was going to be vertical and at the last minute I changed it. I hope that it is not too similiar to ones I have done in the past. They are all starting to blend. {smile}

This is a new set from our fall supplement called Ever So Thankful. I paired it with the retired Amelia collection since the colors are a great match for fall.

Oh Christmas Tree

Thought I would switch it up a little and try moving the picture to the right side. I know I am strange to all the sudden go switching things up. But anyway this card is an stab and trying to get Christmas cards done before the December. I have a goal to send only handmade cards this year. Last year I sent out a little of both and felt guilty.

Little early for a snowman but this stamp of the month is too cute to not get ready for winter. I have really enjoyed getting this set inky. Coloring has become one of the most relaxing this for me to do. What do you do to stay sane.

Christmas Card Frames

I love the fabulous frames to spotlight an image or a saying. Here I used a little white embossing powder to frame the sentiments. October is always crunch time for me to start creating Thanksgiving and Christmas Card and teachers gifts. What time you get started for the holidays.

Peace be still

In this picture I was trying to spotlight the paper glaze that I used to make the tree glossy. I am not sure that you can really tell but I love the effect.

The sample includes designer paper collection from the Maggie SWIC. Be sure to check it out!

Cold to come

Scary...but winter is not that far off. I mean when you wake up in the morning and it is in the low fifties. It reminds you that it will not be long before the mornings are super cold. I do not look forward to the mornings when you get into a cold car. Luckily, my husband is sweet and normally starts it for me and the kids.
This card is done with the October SOTM which is Jingle Jolly. Get this wonderful set while it is on special.

4X4 issue

Okay, so my 4X4 issue is that I am not really fond of making these little cards. See I never have envelopes to fit them that is my main issue.
My friend Vickie always teases me about not wanting to create these little guys. Sometimes, when I have a smaller image I will go ahead and make these smaller cards. So, this little cute dog is for her. See I'm sorry that I always give her a hastle about them.

Tuesday Template 09/28/10

A quick little sketch using a 5.5X5.5 card, thought I would change the shape a little. Plus, the image I wanted to use was really too big for a standard card.

Well, what do you think of Theo? At first I was not sure. But now I love him, I have colored him in every way imaginable. {smile}

Check back soon I am sure to post more with him.
