Nature Love Valentine Card

Christmas is over and the New Year is almost here.  That means countdown to Valentine's Day.  It's my favorite holiday...I love the colors, I love making the cool treats for everyone, but most of all, it's my hubby's Birthday.  :)

Join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments #176 for a cute inspiration challenge....
Here is the photo....

Here is my take on the inspiration photo....

Close up of the double bow and the 5 hearts folded and glued together to make this super fun 3D heart.

I also used the Core-dinations paper with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Fun, right?!

Happy Stamping,

Merry Little Christmas

It's time for a color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Join me this week and please visit the other Design Team members blogs...you will LOVE what they have to show you, too!!

This week it's another simple card.  Easy to duplicate over and over and over.  Great for those of you that make hundreds of cards to mail each year at Christmas.

After I made this card I realized I didn't use Baked Brown Sugar.  I'm a bad girl!!  But as my kids say in school..."you get what you get, don't throw a fit!"  Hahahaha!!  

It's been one of those weeks here....too busy with no time to breathe.  We have a BIG Birthday boy in our house.  Travis will be 3 on Thursday!  Time flies when you are having fun.  Check out this cutie pie....

Enjoy your week and Happy Stamping!

Merry Christmas Watercolor Winter

It's December!!  Where did 2013 go?  Seriously....this year flew by!  I love December because it's CHRISTmas and it's my third son's birth month.  He's such a sweetie and I know God blessed us with him for a reason....he's destined for great things!!  He's only going to be 3 this month, but he sure has such a big heart and a fantastic personality and he's super talented at sports. He amazes me everyday!!

Now, on to some stamping goodness!!  Be inspired this month over at Stampin' Celebration!  Here are the gorgeous photos to help you on your creative journey....

And now....here is my take.  You know me, sweet and simple.  

I got this set (Watercolor Winter) last year for FREE.....that's because Stampin' Up! asked me to be a guest designer in their monthly publication called "Stampin' Success Magazine".  What an honor to be asked, but boy there was some serious pressure I put on myself.

Now that I know this set really well from staring at it for months, I saw the above photos and knew this set was the one I needed to use for this challenge.  I know it's retired, bummer, but it was the one!!  I also used a retired ribbon.  The delicious Red Satin ribbon.  So shiny and so perfect for this challenge, too.

Now it's your turn.  Be inspired and stop by other blogs to check out the other GORGEOUS creations by the Stampin' Celebration Design Team.


Happy Stamping,
