Croppin' Bella style~

Another version of Bella with hints of pink and green. Love the bright colours of these buttons. The ribbon is an AC Moore purchase, most likely one of those times I needed to use a 40% coupon.

A closeup view of this card...loved the gateway fold and then layering it with some patterned paper from K&Co mat packs. Again, I paper pieced bella's dress and croppin' tote with matching paper. She is watercoloured using Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa and Old Olive for her hair bow and shoes.

Thanks for looking...I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Stampin' Bella style ~

this little lady was traded from the SCS forum...wish I could say I look this stylish going to a stamping/scrapping event. Though I have learned not to take the entire collection of "stuff" I still wind up looking like I am on a camping trip...Oii!
I stamped her on Naturals white CS using Stazon, watercoloured her pulling colour off the lids of inkpads and then paperpiecing her dress and rolling tote to match her outfit.

Here is a closeup version with a view of Robin's Nest glass beads. I picked these up at Rubberbuggy in Strasburg a few weeks ago. The rectangle is the popular nestabilities and embossed using the same die.
Thanks for looking!

America...God shed His grace on thee!

oh Beautiful for Spacious skies...I love that song, it never ceases to provoke some tears from deep within! Pray for our Nation, we need God's favour more than ever.

This flag is from the CTMH's Home of the Free. I stamped the image twice, one in Real Red and the other in Brilliant Blue. I cut the stars portion of the flag and mounted it onto the real red stripes. So cool. I stamped AMERICA in brilliant blue over top the flag.
Using my scor-pal, inspired by stamping pal Brandi, I pulled it out and tried a few different folds with some of my cards. I have been looking for ways to use my embossing numbers collage folder and why not on this card? Love the simplicity of this card and the ease in putting it together.

Sacrifice, Honour and Duty...

Love these images from Close to My Heart! I ordered these from my friend Krista when I was looking for Military related stamps. CTMH revamped their military stamp line and these are just perfect! I combined this image with Cuttlebug's diamonds in the rough embossing folder, SU's jumbo eyelets and black gingham ribbon.
River Rock CS is perfect for these military images.
I used a monday Mojo sketch layout for this card. Not sure if I followed all the rules but worked for me. I layered the helmet and boots together on River Rock and Naturals White and stamped everything with Black Stazon. Love the crisp images!
A closeup view of the dogtags... you can stamp the words that come with this stamp set on the tags, how clever is that?!
My son is graduating from the Marines in just two weeks!!! How time flies...although I must admit that it seems to crawl some days. We are so excited to see him and celebrate his successes while in training!

Friends put Delight into My Day ~ thanks Brandi!

This is such a beautiful card!!! love the colour, layout and the texture!
This card appeared in my mailbox the other day and what a delight! Check out Brandi's blog(link on the sidebar) ;=)
She used Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, Whisper White CS and Chocolate Brown ribbon and jute. The technique looks like ink resist, embossing and added bling to the centres of flowers. Gorgeous! and me, the lucky recipient!
Thanks for visiting!

Toadally Unfroggetable Waterfall card

This card is so much fun to make! A friend directed me to this card and walked me through the process...(confessions are good for the soul) So then, in my excitement I introduced my stamp group to this adorable card!

The finished card...what makes it waterfall? the scored lines that each stamped square is adhered to. The ribbon on the bottom is pulled to see each square.Watch as each square is pulled to reveal the next image.

on the second square I stamped this googlie-eyed snail...cute huh?

this mushroom makes you think of fairy tales & prince charming...

finally the sentiment that is just sooo adorable...Have I toad you lately that I love you? ...awww...then a final word to the're unfroggetable.♥

How sweet is that?
