DigiStamp Boutique, Feb comp, entry 2

And here I am for the third time this evening to show you this card. This was Leandra's Valentine, as she is a dog lover. And this puppy's name is Barney. Say "HI!" to Barney everyone! :) Awwwwwww!!!! Doesn't he look so sweet holding his heart for you?? I used another sheet of dp from the Studio G pack, which just happened to go with Barney's butterfly friends...SUH-WEET!!! And yup, I used my favorite layout again. :) What can I say? I like it. Studio G provided the sentiment here too...I thought it fit pretty well with Barney's heart. OK, I am DONE showing you cards for this evening. I hope you have enjoyed my efforts. Until my next post....

DigiStamp Boutique, February competition...entry one

Good evening again folks! I'm here tonight to show you my first entry for this month's DigiStamp Boutique customer competition. This a-DOR-able bear is Louie. He is part of the Louie Love set, one of three images. Isn't he just THE cutest??? When I saw this set, I HAD to have it! The dp is from Studio G...yes, dp from Studio G! $.97 for six sheets at Wal-Mart!! I think that's awesome! :) The sentiment is also a Studio G, stamped in orange TCP ink. I used my Prismacolor markers on Louie...still practicing! The hearts are all colored and then Stickled. Sparkle-ay! Well, I should get on with this...I still want to post the OTHER card I made for the competition. Oh, and this card went to my DD, Laurena for Valentine's Day. See ya soon!

JB12:04...All Buttoned Up!!



Happy Wednesday evening folks! I'm making this a quickie post cause I NEEEEED to get this done and linked up to Jingle Belles! We were to use buttons (or brads, or eyelets)...you know we all have those in our arsenal! I was cleaning out a couple of my desk drawers, and came across these snowman rub-ons, which I was inspired to use on this card. And what goes better with snowmen than snowflakes?? :) So, these snowflake buttons made their way onto my card too! I went with my simple go-to layout, with some dp along the left side of the card, and rickrack to provide some interest. The sentiment is from TCP, stamped with teal TCP ink. OK, gotta get this linked up! BYYYYE!

JB12:03, A Banner Holiday!


Greetings blogland friends! Happy Tuesday afternoon! One more day of work under the ole belt, three more to go! As usual, I am getting my Jingle Belles card in on the next to last day of the challenge...seems to be my habit this year! For this challenge, Stef and Lauren have asked that we be inspired by their new blog banner, in any way, shape or form that may take! I went the "easy" way, and chose to be inspired by the colors...seems to me my card from the previous challenge coulda fit this bill nicely too! But, I like this one much better!
The dp is from the Winter Wonderland pack by...(I have forgotten who!), adhered to kraft cs. The purty swirly is one of many different colored ones I found in the dollar bins at Michael's. I puchased the blossom SB specifically for the purpose of making a poinsettia, and I finally got to it! I cut the different sizes out, spritzed them with water, and then crumpled the heck out of 'em! Before they dried, I ran a darker red inkpad over them for some depth. After I assembled the flower, I thought that it needed more definition between layers, so I added some Candycane Stickles to the points. Oh, and the edge of the dp was run thru a Martha Stewart punch on one side.
I guess that's about all for this one! Make sure you all have a look over at the Jingle Belles blog and see what everyone else has created! Take care!
