Just Hangin' Around

Next up on the agenda...more ribbon! I just got the new double-stitched ribbon from Stampin' Up, but there are so many more great ribbons that I need to buy. I just love the Ribbon Originals and the Gingham too. I never seem to have just the right ribbon. Well anyway, couldn't wait had to have this clear set before Sept. 1st when they had the general I figured I better use it before then considering I could have bought three of them for the price I paid with shipping. The bananas were cut out and tapped on the chocolate Chip pad too look more real, not sure it worked. Look for Changito at Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station soon! The paper is Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and River Rock. The faux stitching is done with a set from Stampin' Up call All in a Row. The tag is done with Stampin' Up tag punches. This is colored with Stampin' Up markers Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, and Summer Sun. TFL

Happiness Always

This card is made with all Stampin' Up products. The colors are purely pomegranate, pretty in pink, and old olive. The ribbon is the new Double Stitched purely pomegranate. The part that is supposed to look like it is sewn was done with the set All in a Row and the flowers and the sentiment are from Happy Harmony. Stickles have been added over the top of the flowers. The pretty in pink piece was dragged across purely pomegranate and old olive. The old olive piece was peeled and dragged with old olive. TFL

Went to Enchanted Forest today, so not much time for stamping. I made this card after we got home for a challenge online. There are no prizes or winners, but it sure is fun and gets you motivated to do something. This is done with Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and very Vanilla paper. The background is sponged using Always Artichoke, Really Rust, More Mustard, and Chocolate Chip. The stamp set is In the Spotlight from Stampin' Up! The circles are made with the awesome scallop punches from Marvy Uchida. The brads and twill tape are also from Stampin' Up. Please feel free to contact me for more info about Stampin' Up products. TFL!

Basket Case!

Purchased these stamps today at SweetHeart Stamps in Rome. I thought they were too cute. The inside reads: All Work and No Play can make you a Basket Case. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and used Gamsol to blend it! Wish I had gray for the mouse, but no such luck. The stamps are from a company called Art Gone Wild. TFL!

Don't worry....bee happy now!

Another stamp purchased from Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station, isn't this little bee just adorable. Wish I would have done this a little differently though so he would stand out more. Working on another version now. The paper is from AC Moore and the designer paper is by Basic Grey. There is glitter on the bees wings, but it doesn't show up too good. TFL

Circle Scissors!

On vacation since Tuesday, so been out shopping with Mom. I bought the circle scissors, so I could make circle cards. It was the last one at AC Moore, but saw some at Michael's. Most everything else is Stampin' Up. Does that make you happy Crouse? I still think it needs something, but not sure what. Went looking for Halloween paper today, couldn't find any so I used Retro Paper. I really wanted something with purple, green and orange, but Bob (Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station) was closed!! The stamp set is Booglie Eyes, the colors are Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Old Olive The dots around the Marvy Scalloped Punch are made with a set from Papertrey Ink. TFL!!

3x3 Circle Card

This is a small 3x3 circle card made with the GIGA Scallop Circle Punch! The Stampendous stamp was purchased at Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station! All paper and inks from Stampin' Up. Colors are Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, So Saffron and Sage Shadow. The striped paper is Designer Series Paper from SU. You'd be surprised what a difference DP (Designer Paper) and a little glitter can make. Please feel free to contact me for more info about SU products, I'd love to hear from you! The colors didn't scan well (as usual), they are much brighter and prettier in person. TFL

Fabulous Bella!!

I really love this Bella card!! Baroque Burgundy paper and ribbon is from SU. I used SU markers to color her, (Close to Cocoa for hair and Blush Blossom for skin) but her pants and shirt were done by stamping the image on the DP, cutting it out and the gluing it over the image stamped on the card. The paper piercing is done using the Mat Pack and a needle. Most everything else was purchased at LSS (Local Scrapbook Stores). TFL!

Improved Changito

Bet you wanna kiss me now! LOL... Didn't like this one, so made a few changes. What do you think, do you like it? The image was purchased at Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station, the DP is from a LSS a long time ago, and the polka dot ribbon was purchased at Michael's. The sentiment was printed on the computer and then punched with the Marvy Scalloped Oval punch. Used SU Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel to color the monkeys... hand drew the lips, cut them out, colored them with real red and glued them on.

Scanners suck!!!

This is one of the new sets from Stampin' Up called Priceless. The paper piercing was done using the Mat Pack and a fat needle. It has a coordinating wheel called So Swirly, It is a very pretty set. I had trouble scanning this because that ribbon always wants to be yellow. So I took a picture and it looks a little better. I wish I had some Blue Bayou paper though because this Soft Sky is too light. We just found out our boss is leaving at work, so i will be giving this card to her. She is an amazing person and really cares about her people, so I am very sad to see her go. TFL

Mom's Cards...So Proud of her!!

She keeps saying she can't/doesn't make nice cards, well she's full of S$!%!! Here is proof that she makes beautiful cards. Give her a little inspiration and she runs with it. Well these are awesome! My favorite is the one with Real Red, Cam's favorite is blue (of course) and she like the one with the green the best. Pretty soon she'll be giving classes. She used mostly all SU products, the stamp sets are Bronc Buster, Wanted, and don't forget to check out the Bronco Wheel and Outlaw Paper. I really love these sets!! I didn't get them yet, but maybe she'll let me borrow them.

More Changito!!!

Here are some other Changito 3x3 cards that will be included in this set, only 3 more to go. I hope to finish them today. These ones are all pretty similar, but not much you can do with 3 square inches when you're not feeling creative. Even so, that's the beauty of these lil cards, you don't have to do too much with them to make them cute. After I finish this set, I want to make a brown and red set! You can get Changito at Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station. If you'd like a template for 3x3 boxes to hold your finished cards, please leave a comment with your e-mail address or contact me. These would make a great gift. Be sure to use a heavy cardstock (like Stampin' Up!) TFL

My Favorite 3x3 Changito!!

I love these 3x3 cards, they are so much quicker to make and these little guys are the perfect size! He needs to be holding something, but I haven't figured out what yet. I made a little 3x3 card box to match these guys, so trying to use all the same papers! Fluffles the Cat and Calendar Chick are also the perfect size. Leave me a message with your name and e-mail address, if you would like more information about purchasing these stamps or click on the Best Buy Shop link to the right! TFL!!

Pearl's Gift Card Holder

Hi, Did you miss me. I have been having some computer problems, but thanks to Bob most have been repaired. I started this project almost a month ago, but of course just finished it today because I had to. This is made using a no. 3 coin envelope to hold the gift card. I adhered two pieces of designer card stock together, but it would be much easier if you only used one double-sided piece or a wheel, because when you fold it the two pieces separate a little. These monkey's are too cute!! Don't wait...get yours at Lil' Deb's Stamp N Scrap Station now. Great prices and I get a little extra discount for making cards for advertisement, so be sure and let them know I sent you. I think I'll make another one of these with brown monkeys, but leave everything else the same. All you need to make this card is: 2 3/4" x 11" strip colored cardstock, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" colored cardstock, 2 3/8" x 3 3/8" colored cardstock, 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" neutral cardstock, 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" colored cardstock, Scrap cardstock, #3 coin envelope (2 1/2" x 4"), Paper trimmer with scoring blade, Adhesive (SNAIL and Dimensionals), Stamps, Ink, Embellishments, and Scissors. Hope you like it! Please share if you make one, I'd love to see it! TFL
