Just Magnolia

I thought I would try out this sketch for Just Magnolia blog. You should see the candy up for grabs but ... I just enjoy the great sketches. I used all the same ingredients as the other card because I was watching hockey. LOL! Bo Bunny bg papers, SU felt flowers, Prima flowers, misc lace ribbon, Bo Bunny brads, Hero Arts gems, Fiskars border punch and nesties. Ok, maybe a few more items. LOL!!

Wasabi KETTO

I just had to try this cutie my mom bought. Although the colors aren't my favorite, I liked using the new Peaches bg paper. What you can't see is her whole outfit is colored with Copics then covered with Spica Copics. The border leaves are from the SU set Pocket Sillouettes.

Sketch Saturday

This weekend I chose to use a Whiff of Joy stamp but have no idea what she's called since I don't own the stamp. I tried to find her online but ... she enludes me!! I used bg paper from Bo Bunny as well as the matching brads, Prima flowers, Copics, misc ribbon and SU felt flowers. OH! and I put white Stickles on her wings and used my white pen for sunlight accents.

Made this card for a birthday but couldn't post until my friend received it in the mail. Only bad thing about having your friends subscribe to your blog. LOL!! I used a Sketch Saturday from awhile ago that my sister challenged me to, which was great cuz I did always want to use that sketch. Here's her card and SO cute! The paper is Glitz Design the Audrey Line, Bo Bunny crushed velvet brads, SU felt flowers (luuuv them!), Prima flowers, Stamping Bella baubles, Fiskars corner punch, swirls CB embossing folder and colored with Copics and Spica Copics.

Whiff Of Joy

Today's Sketch Saturday I kind of altered (turned completely sideways) when I realized my image I had previously colored, was too big! After looking at both I realized I missed the 3 small embellishments on the corner too!! DAMMIT! I joined anway. The bg paper is from Making Memories & Fancy Pants Designs. The felt flowers are from SU - FREAKIN' LOVE THEM! Sentiment is from My Favorite Things and of course, stamp is from Whiff Of Joy.

My 2nd KETTO for the weekend from Stamping Bella. I liked the colors I used on my last card so thought I'd try again. The Peaches paper comes with the center cut out so I found this piece a bit difficult as I tend to layer a lot. I didn't want to cover the nice swirls and great design so tried to limit how much was covered be it paper or embellishments. The HELLO sentiment was popped up and edged with Stickles. I used Prima flowers and Bo Bunny Brads.

Suzette Ketto

This new Ketto line at Stamping Bella is just plain frickin cute!! Although I did think the stamp itself would be bigger but I'm still in love with them. The BG paper is the Peaches line by Prima and I can't wait to use more. The black & red piece was so little. I used some suede ribbon from eons ago, felt swirls and miscellaneous gems.

I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday and what a great sketch it is!

Penelope - Rachelle Anne Miller

I just had to use Penelope as soon as I got her. Rachelle Anne Miller makes the cutest stamps! So sweet so I made this card for my sister. She's the recipient of many of my cards since she's my BIGGEST fan. LOL!! She needed something springy for her desk at work. Not so sure how the black worked its way in there so much but seem to work. I used Martha Stewarts butterful punch and covered each of them with Stickles.


This is one of my favorite fella's since most men I know in my family drink beer. :-) Don't cha love the beer eyelet? hee hee! I'd love to tell you what paper I used but my 12 x 12 paper storage cubicles are true 12 x 12 so I have to cut the end of the paper where it tells you the company. Kind of annoys me because when I use the paper months down the road, like now, I can't remember who made it. And seriously, I'm not into being THAT organized that I tag it somehow. I put Crackle Accents on the starts so they'd crack and I'm bought the star tabs at the Dollar store. Must go back!
