Party Hearty

Good Morning!! I thought today I would get away from posting Christmas cards and post a Birthday card for you. This card uses the Stampin Up set Party Hearty and was easy to make. I started with a Night of Navy base, a strip of Creamy Carmel, a piece of real red that I put through my nesties and also a whisper White that went through the nesties too. My cupcake image was covered with Liquid Applique to give it a little extra bling, colored in with the Stampin Write Markers. I stamped Party Hearty on the Creamy Carmel strip and added a piece of Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I hope you like it!!

Today is a busy day for me. I start the Christmas cookies today, what a wonderful tradition. We make several different varieties but my all time favorite are the Christmas cutouts. Yummy!! Just what I need on my diet!!

Till next time....

Happy Stmaping,

Snow Swirled Christmas

Good Evening!! Today, I thought I'd share one of my Christmas cards I'm sending out to friends and family. A very simple card but is really pretty in real life. It uses the Stampin Up Snow Swirled Stamp Set. I used White craft ink to stamp the image then added silver stickles to it. You probably can't see the stickles on the photo but in real life it is stunning.

Tonight my family has a Chorus concert to go to. I am really looking forward to it, the school usually puts on quite a little production. Really puts you in the holiday spirit.

Thanks for stopping by, more tommorrow and hopefully better pictures.

Happy stamping,

It's a Start!!

I decided to jump on the bandwagon. We'll see how this goes. My hope is to post everyday, but we all know how that goes. This is an adventure for me, something to dabble in. I hope you all like what you see and come and visit often. I will try to keep the talk short and sweet and the pictures coming. Here is my first submission for you. Although you can't really tell so well in the picture, I have used dazzling diamonds on the wording and popped up the snowman to give it a little Wow!! This uses the Stampin' Up! Big on Christmas Stamp Set. One of my favorites. I was so happy that it wasn't discontinued today. As I'm sure you all have heard the retiring list has come out from Stampin' Up! today. Run, not walk to my website at to check out the list and to do your shopping. They have a 10% off promotion this year as well as free shipping on orders over $70. You can't beat that with a stick. Well, I guess that's it for a start.
Happy Stamping,
