My Christmas card

I'm gonna try to be creative again.
Here's my Christmas card for this year. I used my Riley the Moose stamp from my fave stamp store in KC, Stamper's Ink. The DP was bought from Hobby Lobby. I used glitter, flock for Riley's antlers, crystal glaze for the star and ornaments and Smooch (Siren) for the tree stand. It was colored with Copics and Sharpie markers!

My Pink Stamper Challenge #9 - Take Shape



For this challenge, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to use my Hello Kitty Greeting Cricut cartridge. Because I Love, LOVE Hello Kitty and because there are some cute cards on there.





I kinda messed up and didn't really look for the 'perfect' (in my eyes) stamp or something for the sentiment in the heart. The sentiment is a rub-on from Heidi Grace. The bling is Light Pink Rhinestones from Kaiser Craft .

Anyways...here it is...Enjoy!!!

My Pink Stamper Challenge #8 - Love My Color

Here is my card for "Love My Color".



This took me awhile to come up with. It is somewhat of the look I was going for but not totally.

I used a Core CS and ran it through my Cuttlebug for a nice stressed look. Since I used the Stylized CB folder, I wanted an Asian look. I used a retired SU set, Symbols of Solicitude, the word is "Joy". And the flower is from Prima Flowers.



Enjoy!!





My Pink Stamper Challenge #5 - Teacher Apprecation Day's

Here is my card for Challenge #5 - Teacher Appreciation Day's.

Awhile ago I had participated in an image swap and used a Stamping Bella stamp that would have been PERFECT for this challenge. Unfortunately, I used the two images I had for two teacher friends of mine. So...I had to go searching and thinking of what I could use.


I did not see anything I liked in my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge or my Printing 101 Cricut cartridge either. Then I remembered that I had a cute Apple sitting on three school books in my Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge!



After cutting the apple and school books, I wanted to make the card look like a chalkboard - hence, the colors I used.



The sentiments are from a set of clear stamps that I just 'HAD' to have when I saw a card using those stamps. It is gracias, merci, grazie from Fiskars.



And here is my card:

My Pink Stamper #1 Challenge - Mother Dear, I Love You So

I know I am not going in order, so that isn't something new with me, right? LOL!


Anyways, this is for Challenge #1.


I bought this stamp when I was at Archiver's because I really liked the saying. I think it goes well with this challenge!


My Pink Stamper #11 Challenge: Colors of the Rainbow

Here is my submission for Challenge #11 - Colors of the Rainbow.

This was a bit hard for me to come up with a card. But then after thinking really hard and looking at my stuffs, I figured I could use a stamped image that I can color using the colors of the rainbow!


So...here's my card:
I used a Sugar Nellie stamped image that I got in an image swap. And I colored her mostlying using Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue and Green.

My Pink Stamper #12 Challenge

I am going to be posting some cards I did for My Pink Stamper's National Scrapbooking Day challenges.


This is for challenge #12 - Animal/critter.

New blog candy!!

Check out this blog. I love her cutesy dragons! She has blog candy to celebrate 100 fans on her Facebook page! You GOTTA check it out!

More new cards!!!

Hooray! I made two more cards yesterday! Hooray!!! That makes a total of Three cards this month! Oh my...that's like a record for me or something. LOL!!!

The owl card was made for a certain little girl, my niece Zoe. When I went back to Guam in January, I met her for the first time. I loving teased her by calling her 'Zorie' which is Chamorro (the native language of Guam) for flip-flops. Only because Zoe and Zorie sounds alike! Well....when I returned home to Colorado, I found some candy, in a box shaped like a Zorie! It was too adorable and I had, HAD to buy it for Zoe. The box is pink with owls on it. Hence, the reason why I made this card! I really love the inside!!! I hope Zoe likes it!!!
Whenever I'm anywhere new....I always have to look for any stamping/scrapbooking stores. While I was on Guam, we went to the Chamorro Village (it's like a little out-dooor market area. Lots of vendors with a lot of touristy stuff). Well...I found a stamp place and of course, bought stamps!!!
So, for my Hafa Adai card, I'm sending this card to a cousin here in the states, along with lemon powder (from Guam). I think the next time I make this card, I'm not going to use pink CS. I used pink because I colored the plumeria pink. Oh and talking about plumeria....the flower in the inside is a plumeria. It is one of my fave flowers on Guam!
Thanks for looking and laters Gators!!!

Fiber - from stash
Eyelet - from stash
Stamps - both SU: Small Sayings (hat & inside saying), Tagger's Dozen (tag)
