So Many Scallops

I am gonna have to try this again.. Can you tell my hands aren't steady or what?! Anyhow, this is another 3x3" gift card. Using the snowflake stamp from SU So Many Scallops. The colors used are SU buckaroo blue, bliss blue and chocolate chip. I also used Stickles on the stamped image and on the card itself. (it's really crooked). I'll be making this card again... I'm not going to let it get the best of me.

Changito Birthday

This is a new (this summer) Changito stamp from Stampendous called 'Changito Pool Guy'. The sentiment stamp is also from Stampendous called 'beach-n birthday'. It took me a while to figure out what to do with this stamp, but I achieved my goal and created this little 3 x3" gift card. The wave image is from a SU stamp set called 'On the Beach'. The colors used are SU green galore, only orange, buckaroo blue, creamy caramel and basic black. There is Stampendous Chrystal Snow on the tip of each wave (can't see in the scan, bummer!)

Sensational Scenery

I was doing a little playing around with chalk, I think this card came out pretty good for playing. I took a piece of scrap paper and cut it into a good size circle. Then placed the circle on top of my card in the desired spot. Took a cotton ball rubbed in white chalk and rubbed it on the edge of the circle to make it appear like a luminous moon. (Pretty neat, huh?!) Took the pine tree stamps from SU Sensational Scenery set and stamped them accordingly with bliss blue. Dabbed the edges of the trees with a glue pen and applied Stampendous Crystal Snow (glitter). Which you can't see very well in the scan, but it does look nice. The card stock is also SU bliss blue. The sentiment stamp used is from the SU retired set called Christmas Cardinal. It reads 'Wishing you a never-ending season of peace'.

Snowflakes Card

Hi everyone,
I know it's been a while since my last post, but I have to say that I've had a pretty busy summer so far. I had surgery and am doing well. After the healing process, my family and I took a long needed and deserved vacation to Darien Lake NY. We had a blast.
Anyhow, seeing as how it's a little on the chilly side today, the spirit of the holidays came over me. So I made a snowflake card. The card stock is SU retired bliss blue. I used a lot of Stampendous Class O Peels (the little snowflakes). Also used are a few Robins Egg dew drops and some glitter. I couldn't figure out what sentiment would go best so I just left it without one.
