Second Post for today!!

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CASology Week 110 and their Cue Card word is LETTER.

Week 110 - Letter

I have to say when I sat down to create I had to think really hard on what I wanted to create.  All of the ideas that came to mind someone already bet me to the punch.

I felt stuck.  So, I took out a stamp set I’ve never used and one piece of color card stock and decided that I had to come up with something using these two items.

I choose Papertrey Ink Wet Paint Alphabet and Stampin’ Up! Basic Black cardstock.

I ponder over what in the world I make that represented a letter.  I thought about having all of the letter be my background but the word is singular so that wouldn’t work.

Then a light bulb went off and I came up with this:


I decided to spell out the word L-E-T-T-E-R and emboss it with Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise Embossing Powder (which happens to be on sale for next to nothing, let me know if you need it).

I added a Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone and my card is done.

Nothing much to it but I like it.

What do you think?  Let me know below.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with CAS(E) this sketch #84. I only have 8 hours to post this card.


I created a one layer card. I wanted to keep it very simple.

Take a look at my card:

Hello(Sorry about the photo, no natural lighting it is 1:26 in the am)

Edited to include this better photo at 6:30am


My card is pretty clean and simple.  I used there Stampin’ Up! colors to create my card, crisp cantaloupe, pistachio pudding and basic black.

The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! Hi There stamp set.

The scallops are from Papertrey Ink’s Ombre Builders stamp set.

1. I masked 1inch of space at the top of the card using the post-it tape.

2. I stamped my image 1/8 from the top and bottom of the post-it tape.

3. I removed the tape and added my sentiment.

4. I added rhinestones and WALA my card is done!!

You Make My Heart GLOW!!

Second Post for the day!

Hello everyone!  I’m back again with CASology Week 103.  The Cue Card is “Glow”!  Yes, glow.  What can I do?  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do so I turn to Pinterest for some inspiration.

As I browsed Pinterest the common theme was glow-in-the-dark.  So, I asked myself how can I get my card to glow in the dark.  I did some research and I found some glow-in-the-dark paint.  Thank you Martha Stewart!!

Now in order to get the full effect of my card the lighting in the picture at a minimum. I was trying to take the picture in complete darkness but my camera wouldn’t take the photo, so I did the best I could.

Take a look at my card:

You make my heart glow

I added glow-in-the-dark paint to the wood heart and let it sit under the light for a couple of hours.  When you turn off the light the heart really glows.  My kids thought it was the coolest thing.

Since my camera wouldn’t take the picture in the dark, I turned on a small light in my hallway to the left of my room where the card was located. I set the camera to automatic and it took a couple of minutes to actually take and when it finally snapped this is what I got.  I love the glow of the heart from the camera but I really love the glow on the desk from the heart and the the sentiment.

So what do you think?

Watercolor Love You

Hello everyone!  I’m back again with AAA Cards Game #10 Watercolor techniques and Virginia’s View Challenge #5.


V. V. Challenge #5 (2)

Take a look at my card:

Watercolor Love you

I used Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart Stencil and Distress Inks Pack 1 to create my beautiful heart on watercolor paper.

Watercolor Love You close up

I used Simon Says Stamp Big You die to cut out 4 “you” dies out of basic black cardstock and stacked them together to add dimension.

I choose to use black cardstock so that the “you” would pop against the bright watercolor heart. I used clear foam tape to adhere the “you’ to my card.  I love this tape because you will never see the tape behind your project.  Thank you Jennifer McGuire for that one.

I love how it turned out.  I went to my brother and asked him to tell me what the card said and he nailed it on the first try.

So, I’m confident you will see that my card says I Love You!

Let me know what you think.  I would love to get feedback.

I Love Owls!!!!

OMG, I’m so excited about my new 3-D project.  I saw this project at my upline Yvette Sanchez’s meeting two weeks ago and feel in love with it; that I had to make one for myself and you!  Please do not get to excite, wait yes, get super excited.  So here you go:

Owl Gift Box

Tell me this isn’t the cutest Owl you ever saw.  I know that’s what I said.  Paper-crafting is such a wonderful craft.  Look how I transformed a kraft box into a cute, lovable owl with paper, candy and no stamping.  My make and take class at work will learn how to make these in two weeks.

This box can be given out as teacher gifts, students gift, gift for individuals that do not celebrate Halloween traditional or just because it’s so cute! This would put a smile on anyone’s face.  I’m selling these at the craft fair this weekend.


Cardstock: Basic Black (121045), Crumb Cake (120953), and Pumpkin Pie (105117)

Accessories: Decorative Window Gift Box (132146), Scallop Oval Punch (119856), 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch (118874), 1-3/8 Circle Punch (119860), Blossom Punch (125603) and Googly Eyes
