Halloween Treat Bag

This project was created with Cloud9 Design two sided card stock called Luster Justin Pieces. The yellow and green card stock was purchased at a local craft store. I love the bat sticker made by Cloud9. It is a Epoxy Accent Sticker. The Happy Halloween sentiment is from the Stampin Up set called All Year Cheer III.

This greeting card was created with black card stock and Stampin Up Whisper White card stock. I also used black and white glitter card stock from DCWV The Glitter Stack purchased at a local craft store. The circle ghost sticker is a Cloud9 Design Epoxy Accent Sticker mounted on a Stampin Up perforated tag. The little ghosts on the bottom of the card are Cloud9 Design Happy Halloween Ghosts Rain Dots. There are also stars around the ghosts heads but you can't see them good in the picture. The pumpkin and scull stickers are Cloud9 Design 3D Gel Element Stickers. The black grosgrain ribbon was purchased at a local craft store.

Happy Healing

The front of this little get well gesture (located on the far left) was stamped with the 'Happy Healing' retired stamp set made by Stampin' Up. Ink color is tempting turquoise by Stampin' Up. The back (located on the inner left) is a stamp made by Stampendous called 'Worth It'. Perfect for someone who might have a little boo- boo and needs a little lift.

Cloud 9 Design Happy Halloween

This card was made with Cloud 9 Design 12x12 two sided card stock called Luster Justin Pieces. The bats on the front of the card stock are raised and shiny. Very cute. The back of the card stock is a smokey black/gray color like charcoal. Cloud 9 Design3D gel word stickers 'Happy Halloween', 3D gel element stickers 'Bats' and Fiskars multi color Halloween Rain Dots were also used. These rain dots are awesome, they are raised dots of color and self adhesive like stickers. The Cloud 9 Rain Dots add dimension to any card or scrap page.

Trouble the Cat

How's this for a box of fluffles? This is Trouble and she is sooo cute!!!!

Bubble Gum Yum

I really like this 4x4 inch card! This card was created from strips of card stock that were in my scrap bin. I glued all the strips together then glued white card stock on the inside. The pink set of lips image is a Stampendous stamp that was stamped with Gel-a-tins Bubble Gum Yum scented embossing powder. OMG!! This smells fantastic! Perfect for a set of lips. The 'luv ya' sentiment and 'xo' images are from a clear rubber stamp set called Hugs & Kisses made by Gel-a-tins also. The ink is Stampin' Up mauve mist. The eyelet flower and ribbon were purchased at a local craft store.

Bloom


Here is that beautiful smile again! This scrap page was created with a clear rubber stamp set called
'Bloom' made by Gel-a-tin's Co. This is a great set to use for pictures of little girls growing up into little ladies. All of the flowers and the sentiment are from the 'Bloom' set. The bee is a Great Impressions stamp. The inks are whisper white and pretty in pink from Stampin' Up. The eyelets and card stock were purchased at a local craft store.

Tattoo Shop


This is a scrap page created with a clear rubber stamp set called ' Tattoo Shop' made by Gel-a-tin's Co. The little bike image is from a clear rubber stamp set called 'Build a set Traffic Signs' also made by Gel-a-tin's Co. I couldn't display the page without the picture it just wouldn't have the same feel to it. Doesn't this child have a beautiful smile!? Anyhow, she received a new bicycle for her b-day and this stamp set was the perfect one to use for the occasion. The silver, real red and basic black inks are from Stampin' Up.

Fluffles the Cat

Helloooo... This is my Fluffles the Cat collection, I love it.

You can purchase all the Stampendous Fluffles The Cat wood mounted rubber stamps here. I just started some projects with these. So far only 2 with the same stamp and colors. These should keep me busy for a while.
This stamp is called Box of Fluffles. The project is a money gift card. The top photo is the card closed, the bottom is the card open.. with a little something inside. I really like how these color came together.The second project below, is a candy box made with the same Box of Fluffles stamp. It's the perfect idea for this stamp. If you notice, I even put matching color candy inside. The sentiment stamp says 'just a little something...' also from Stampendous.

Hugs n Kisses


This project is another recycle gift made from a Campbell soup can. It's the perfect size for any small gift or even to fill with candy for your honey. I used memory paper to cover the can. It seems to be easier to work with than card stock, it doesn't fight back as much. I used white card stock to stamp on. The hearts, XO and luv ya images are from a Gel-a-tin's clear stamp set called Hugs n Kisses. I love this set, it has endless possibilities.

Asian Gardan

Hello again, it's been a while, huh!? I've been busy with this stamp set by Gel-a-tin's. It's called Asian Garden. This is a multipurpose card that could be used for any occasion. I dug out some scraps out of my scrap bin and carefully placed them in their own spot.




The card to the right hand side is also created with Gel-a-tin's clear rubber stamp set called Asian Garden. I love how the asian grass looks. The 'Get Well Soon' sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The ribbon is also Stampin' Up. When I was embossing the sentiment I accidentally got the heat from the embossing gun on the ribbon. It shrunk it!! But I love how it looks. I guess the best things discovered are on accident. I used pale gold embossing powder for sentiment and trim. I don't know the brand but it's a nice color.



This is my favorite card that I created with this stamp set. That little asian bird was giving me issues but I finally got it to work. The ink colors are Stampin' Up forest foliage and sage shadow. The sentiment is a stamp made by Stampendous. I also did the oops thing with this ribbon too but before doing so I inked the ribbon with forest foliage so it would match.

Coffee Break




This is a project made with a clear rubber stamp set called 'Coffee Break' made by Gel-a-tin's Co. It is a decorated mini brick of Millstone Raspberries n cream ground coffee (just enough for one pot). The sentiment around the solid blue circles says "You're the mocha latte in a world full of cheap machine coffee". The paper was purchased at a local craft store. The inks used are Stampin' Up positively pink and brocade blue. The gift bag was a great garage sale find... I bought about 30 of these in all different colors for a dollar. Perfect match! Great gift idea for anyone.




Not only do I like coffee but so do some pretty good friends of mine. The mug is one of those Color a Mug that you can get at a local craft store for a dollar. I took out the coloring pages and let my imagination go. The inks used for this set are Stampin'Up Close to Cocoa, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.The project to the right hand side is decorated with the same clear rubber stamp set by Gel-a-tin's. I used Millstone French Vanilla ground coffee for this one. This set really sparked some creativity for me because not The coffee cup on the tag was embossed with Gel-a-tin's Extra Foam Latte scented embossing powder and the coffee beans were embossed with Gel-a-tin's Cuppa Joe Black Coffee scented embossing powder. The aroma made me feel like I was sitting
in a coffee shop. These smell great!!!!
The picture on the bottom right is a shot of the bottom of the mug. I love this idea, inexpensive too.



The project to the left hand side is just about the same as the one on the right only different design. This Coffee Break set is great because you get so many different little stamps which make the project ideas limitless. The picture on the inner left didn't come out that great but this mug did. I used the same Gel-a-tins scented embossing powder on the tag. (Mmmm, smells wonderful). The sentiment says 'Take a break...' Very nice pick me up for a coworker or friend who is having a bad day. I think the Millstone Caramel Truffle ground coffee should do the trick. These mugs are great too because you can decorate the whole thing, even the bottom.

Chocolate Bliss

These are a few projects I made with a clear rubber stamp set called 'Chocolate Bliss' made by Gel-a-tins Co. The top project is a decorated box of Lindt truffles, Mmmm! The sentiment says "You're the chocolate truffle in a chocolate bar world." I also used that sentiment on the candy
box as seen in the project below on the right hand side. The candy box is filled with individually wrapped Lindt Lindor Truffles. What a great way to cheer up a friend. The tags were made with a Stampin' Up circle punch. The chocolate truffle image on all the tags were embossed with Gel-a-tins 'Chocolate Bliss' scented embossing powder. Let me tell ya, it smells good enough to eat.
The project on the left hand side was also made with the same set using Lindt Swiss milk chocolate with liquid raspberry filling, yummy! (I don't know if I want to give this one away). The sentiment used for this says "Man cannot live on chocolate alone, but a woman can!" I couldn't think of a better way to honor a great piece of chocolate and make someone smile at the same time.
