I played along in today's sketch challenge on SCS. I wanted to make some elegant birthday cards for the people I work with. February is a VERY popular birthday month where I work, so I'll need quite a stockpile!
Here's my card....
Stamps: Garden of Life (PTI)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz (PTI)
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Black, White, and Black & White dp (all from PTI)
Accessories: Classic Rectangle Nestabilities, Corner rounder punch, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, Rhinestone Stickers
What do you think? I was trying for classic-elegant feminine style. I think it's kind-of retro too... because of the pattern of the dp.
That's all for today. I'm sure I'll be back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get in some more time in my stamp room.
Thanks for stopping by and looking! Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Cute, huh? I think it's kind of masculine. What do you think?
Stamps: Pond Life, Pond Life Sentiments, Birthday Basics (all from PTI)
Ink: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Garden Green
Paper: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Garden Green, white
Accessories: Spots & Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, 1 1/4 inch & 1 3/8 inch circle punches, word window punch, Baja Breeze Button, linen thread, dimentionals
Tonight we're getting a HUGE snowstorm!!!! I'm hopeful that tomorrow will be a S-N-O-W-D-A-Y for me. (Notice that I spelled it out and didn't "say" it.... so I don't jinx it!) Yes, I'll be wearing my pajamas backwards and flushing ice cubes down the toilet all in the hope that my phone will ring sometime between 6:00 and 7:00 am tomorrow morning! I know... I know.... I'm just as bad as the kids!
Thanks for stopping by today and peeking at my blog. Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Paper: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, White, Urban Garden designer paper
Ink: Not Quite Navy

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful day!!! :)

I chose to create 2 cards... both following the same basic layout... just some slight variations with color and orientation on the cards.
Here's my first card...
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Paper: Pink Passion, Orchid Opulence, White
Ink: Black, SU Markers
Accessories: Red Line sticky tape, pink and purple fine glitter, labels nestabilities, Spica glitter pen, dimensionals
Here's my second card...
I didn't change too much. The card is upright instead of horizontal. I also used pink and black glitter and changed the orchid opulence out for the black. It gives it a "hip" feel I think!
I used the Spica glitter pens on the sprinkles on the cupcake and the flame on the candle.
That's all for today! Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Today's featured stamper was JulieHRR. I chose to case THIS card from her gallery. As you can probably see, I changed the colors a little bit and used a different stamp set. I stuck with the same theme and only made the main image bigger on the layout. I also used my threading waters punch from Fiskars instead of scalloped scissors and used much larger rhinestone stickers in the centers of the flowers.
Here's my card...
Stamps: Just Buzzin' By (new from SU in upcoming catty), Stem Sayings (SU)
Paper: White, So Saffron, Petals & Paisley dp (retired SU)
Ink: Black, SU Markers (So Saffron & Close to Cocoa)
Accessories: Fiskars Threading Water punch, Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Pretties flowers, blue rhinestone stickers, 1/4 inch white grosgrain ribbon
Thanks so much for looking today! Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Being sick really ruined my stamping mojo. Today was the first time since Christmas Eve since I've stamped, or even set foot in my stamp room. I did manage to read all 4 books in the Twilight series while I was sick. They were definitely page turners and if you haven't read them.... I strongly reccommend them! Seriously... I read four 600+ page books in less than 2 weeks... they are THAT good!
Today I created some Christmas thank you/good luck in 2009 cards to send out to family and friends. I followed the January 2009 Sheetload of Cards layout to mass produce 8 of these cards. Plus I got to use one of the new Sneak Peek sets from SU's upcoming catty which will be released in a few weeks. Super fun!
Stamps: Game Night (SU)
Paper: So Saffron, Basic Black, Real Red, White, Game Night dp (SU)
Ink: Black, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon
Thanks so much for looking today! I hope you have a wonderful 2009!!! Have a wonderful day!!! :)
