This card was stamped in 1st and 2nd generations for the trees, using the Always Grateful Stamp set (C1559). I punched the branches using a Martha Stewart retired punch set, and added a little bow and some gold embellishments for ornaments!

My parents sent me this witch card for Halloween. They bought the card at Papyrus, and she has brad rivets to move her in different positions. I thought she would be perfect to add to my Halloween layout I made for an upcoming Halloween party this month. All I need is the photos now.....and that's the EASY part!
I made this card with the Santa's Greeting Holiday mini stamp (M1028)! This stamp is only $2.95! The background is stamped using the rope in the Sail Away stamp set (C1530). This rope is so versatile! I added some red bling from the new Base and Bling jewel set (Z1893). Simple but festive card!

Can you tell I am obsessed with this new Hostess Stamp Set? So...I simply created the card on the left by stamping random washi stamps in Honey, Clover Green and Twilight. I used some old Dotty paper for the card on the right with a irresistable chipboard and a few buttons.

This WASHI WONDER stamp set was my favorite stamp set in the new Idea Book! So fun and easy to create the look of tape on a project. I cut the clouds from the Cricut Artiste cartridge at 2" and 1-1/4" on page 70. I cannot wait to use this washi stamp on a layout!

Today I was playing with stamps and since I am waiting on my new paper packs to arrive, I decided to use the new distressed Backgrounds stamp set (D1544) instead of B&T papers. The stamp set used for the Seeds is from the Buzz and Bumble Workshop on the Go stamp set. Colors used were Outdoor Denim, Honey,Olive and Terracota.
So I just have been in the mood to make Christmas/Holiday cards lately! I love pine trees and pine needle cards. Since CTMH doesn't currently have a pine tree stamp, I took the pine needle wreath with bow in the new Yuletide Greetings stamp set (D1553) and masked the corners to get a dropping type spray. To mask, you simply place scotch tape over the area you don't want to show when you stamp and ink the stamp, peel the tape and stamp image. I stamped the corner of the pine wreath 4 times to get this effect.

LOVED this idea from fellow consultant, Shirley Ross. Monochromatic card with one of my favorite stamp sets LOVE LIFE (D1482). I used Sweet Leaf ink for the green card, Cotton Candy for the pink and Sunflower for the yellow. The tags are cut from Art Philosophy at 1-3/4' and 1-1/2" respectively.
You're a Peach! What a fun stamp set. I have been on a roll making SIMPLE cards (not a lot of embellies) which is so hard for me to do. I always want to add a ribbon, or buttons or something. BUT..this card is better left alone. This stamp set is only $5 with any $50 purchase from CTMH for the month of July! GO GET IT!!

Well, I am waiting on my CTMH order to arrive, so I decided since we have had 7 straight days of OVER 100 degree weather, that I would make a SNOW card. This snowman is stacked with pop dots, and I used Flakey Friends (C1506) Stamp set and his arms are from the Arbor Wooden Shapes.

I have been on a roll lately in my studio, and was inspired by fellow consultant, Julie Carriere with a Chantilly card she made for her roomies at convention, so I pulled out my Chantilly paper and started creating! The card on the left is stamped with the Country Born stamp set (so stinkin' cute that set is!- D1543) and the other card is stamped with the sentiment from Fabulous You (C1533).

I LOVE this "Wheel of Life" stamp set (D1545). I placed an order for the spinner chip boards with removable arrows (Z1832), but couldn't wait to post a pic of this because they don't arrive until later this week- (So I used some spinner arrow stash). BUT you get the idea, these cards are so fun and I love that they are interactive! I used the Tommy paper pack (X7169B) for the 4th of July card and used the Dream Pop paper pack with irresistible letters for the "girlie" card.

I saw this idea in a magazine, and had to make a card like this with a real tea bag. SO very simple. I used some scraps from the Scholastic paper pack and the red tag is from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (page 26) cut at 1-1/2".

I sent out all my 4th of July cards a week ago, and realized I missed one of my good friends. SO....I created this card with the Honeycomb Flair (C1537) stamp set. Cardstock used was Cranberry and Outdoor denim. The sentiment was from the old retired July Word Puzzle.
It is SO hot today in Roseville, so I decided to stay in where the fans and air conditioning is and make a few cards to replenish my "stash". The card on the left is made with a washi tape combo pack I purchased on HSN a while ago, and love how easy it is to make background paper with it. The card on the right is made with the CTMH Later Sk8r paper pack (X7167B) and the Life is Good stamp set.

I was inspired by a card from this months Paper Crafts Magazine, and decided to pull out some older stamps and made this "Amazing" card in about 5 minutes. I used the "Life is Good" promo stamp CC1020 and "You Are" S1024 stamp set for the Amazing sentiment. I also stamped the "Every Day is an Adventure" on the corresponding chip board shape. WAH LAH!!

I found a card like this one on Pinterest, and found it very easy to make using my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The face is a round circle that I trimmed to fit the corner. Cut this at 3 1/2". The ears are an oval cut at 1 3/4" and the pink card stock is cut at 1 1/2" to fit inside. The nose is a 1/2" heart shape. I drew the whiskers and eyes. Happy Easter everyone!
Okay- I am a bit late this year, so will have to place in my stash for next year! I punched these shamrocks out and used the CTMH Epoxy Bubbles on them. The stamp set is retired (March Word Puzzle). The concept is what I was going for, a heart of shamrocks....

I LOVE anything with owls, and this card was a fun one to make. I used the retired stamp set Soul Mates for the sentiment, and the Whoo's your Valentine owl stamp for the owls. The glitter paper is from the Whoo's your Valentine set as well.
This pocket card is perfect to house a tag with your sentiment and another tag for a gift card. I used the Buzz and Bumble paper pack (can you tell I love this set?) and embellished with buttons and the burlap ribbon. The pinwheel was made with the Cricut Artiste. The card is 5x7 in size and the tags are cut from Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The larger Happy Birthday tag ivory colored base is 5" then I layered the brown paper at 4 3/4" and honeycomb yellow is cut at 4 1/2". The smaller bee tag brown base color is 4 1/4" and layered with the bee paper cut at 4".

I created this Buzz and Bumble layout with elements in the new Workshop On The Go (G1054). The stamp set you see here is an exclusive to this kit, (not sold separately in the CTMH Spring catalog). It is darling...and features the BEE and the "Wonderful Beautiful You" sentiment. It also has "You are My Happy" stamp set. So cute! I used the Enjoy Life (C1439) stamp set for the vintage-y looking edges. Ink used was Saddle, Honey and Chocolate. Other accessories used were Foundry pins (Z1612), antiqued Gold buttons (Z1786), burlap ribbon ((Z1760) and Brown and Tan assortment bling (Z1753).

I haven't posted in a LONG time here....and am excited to be back! I plan to do a few more Valentines and post them before I pop them in the mail. I really enjoy sending Valentines out. This one is the first one I made this year with rhinestone scraps. I used the stamp from the CTMH YOU ROCK stamp set.
