Seeing Stars…….

Hello, I’m back today with a card for you, yayyyy!!!  I know you missed seeing a card in my last post, but I am more than the cards that I make, so there will be times when you will learn more about me!  I hope that is ok with all of you.


Today’s card was made for CAS(E) this Sketch #77.


It took me two days to decide what I wanted my card to look like.  I tried hearts, circles, and triangles but none of them were eye-catching to me.  So I decided to go with stars.  I love how it turned out.

Life Doesn't have to perfect

I used Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay Ink and Stampin’ Up! Simply Stars (which by the way is retiring on May 31st) to create my card.

I think the stars really stood out to me because I’m in such a good mood today.  Today is the first Saturday in a very long time that I get to really play with all of my craft supplies and not feel guilty about it.  Yayyyyy! I’m going to try to make a couple of cards that I’ve been dying to make.  I’m also going to sit with my nieces and do some water-coloring!  They love playing with me.  I can’t wait, can you feel my excitement.

Ok, ok, I digress, back to my card, lol.

I rounded the corners of all three pieces of cards and adhered them together.  I also added rhinestone to the stars for a little bling. I’m pleased with what I came up with and I hope it’s a great fit for the challenge.

Stencil Class Day 2

So today is day 2 of my 4 day stencil class.  I’m learning a lot.  Today’s class we learned different techniques on how to use stencils.  I tried a couple of them and didn’t like the results so I’m going to keep trying until I get it right.  There was one technique that was easy enough not to mess up.  Guess what that technique is?  It’s so simple, you will laugh.  Have you guessed it yet?  Well here is the answer, its COLORING.  Yes, simple children’s play, Coloring with colored pencils!!  How could I mess that up?

The stencil used to make that card, I didn’t have.  I’m going to get that stencil today, but in the meantime, I had a heart stamp that would do just fine.  So, I made a card with the heart stamp from the ” Perfect Pennants” stamp set.  I love how the card came out.  The heart stamp is so full and small to me.  I want to stamp it everywhere!  I cant wait to see how it will look once I stencil the hearts.  Take a look at the stamped card.

Hearts Enjoy


How precious!! I used the new in-colors ink pads to create the color hearts.  Aren’t those colors yummy!  Tell me what you think of my stamped image.
