New Goals...

I have decided to try and set two new goals for myself.  The first being to create at least one card or project a day, and the second being to share them with you.  I have loved being in my stamp studio and look forward everyday to making my cup of tea and heading downstairs to see what I feel like creating.  The past few days have been quite productive and I would like to share a peek of what I accomplished!  I have SO MUCH patterned paper and love using it in my cards.  This first project I used a sheet of Bazzill cardstock to create the base of the cute card holder and inside there are five coordinating cards.  With some coordinating papers, a few stamps and embellishments and you have a great gift for anyone, any occasion.  I love how it turned out, I hope you do too.

A few days late...

Going to try and upload some pics today of some of the projects I have been working on.  I am going to be spending the entire day in my stamp studio so hopefully I will have lots to share with you over the next few days. Here are a couple close ups of the project I showed the other day.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks, a few Tim Holtz stamps, some Ranger UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel), a page out of an old poem book that I had in my ephemera bin, as well as a Prima flower, a few mica tiles and some scrap ribbon I had.  

Here is a card I made the other day and just hadn't had a chance to post it yet.  I'm sending this one out so I wanted to make sure I grabbed a pic of it first.  I used Bazzill cardstock along with some of my favorite Chatterbox papers that I bought at a garage sale last summer.  I went there to look at a Cricut Expression but ended up buying over 400 sheets of Bazzill cardstock, tons of Chatterbox papers and kits and some Stazon Opaque White ink pads with refills for only $40 total!!!   I believe that was my sale of the summer!  Loved it!

I used one of Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz on the flower to brighten in up a bit as well as adding a few gems for little sparkle.  

Okay, heading down into the studio now to hopefully create lots of new cards that I can share!  Have a great day everyone!!
