Communion Card

Good Morning Again!!I wanted to share my nephew's Holy Communion card with you all. Need opinions. How is it? I would appreciate any comments. I started with a Navy CS Base by Stampin Up. Added a layer of Always Artichoke by SU, then a Gold layer from my stash, and then the vanilla layer that I stamped the image on and embossed it in gold. I colored very lightly with distress inks just to give it some color. The inside of the card contains the verse on the bottom and on the top the cross and "Jesus Loves You". The card took me forever to make. Trying to figure out where to put the outside sentiment, deciding how to color the image. I think it turned out ok, what do you think?? Enjoy!! Keep Stamping!!

Hopping Down the Bunny Trail

Good Morning!! I just love this Tulip Pathway by Magnolia. A lot of fun to color. I received it from a swap from the Magnolia group,along with Tilda and the bunny too. In fact all supplies for this card except for the flower were from the swap. The flower was from Diane at Magnolia-licious. I love the little bunny, done in shrinky dinks. Never would have thought of this but I need to pull mine out and use them. Really fun!! My daughter loves shrinky dinks too so would be something we could do together. Something that is hard to find these days. I don't have the copic colors again for this as I did this a while ago and set it aside and just finished it. Did that with a lot of images. Need to write the copic colors down I guess. I made a First Communnion card for my nephew last night. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I'll post it for you under a new post. It stopped snowing for now. It actually was sticking to the ground yesterday, umph!! We only got a dusting but even that is too much. I'm ready for sunny skies and warmer temps. So is my body. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis pretty severely and the damp weather does not agree with me. My doctor actually told me to move to a warmer climate, like that will happen. Have a lot of running around to do today and laundry to do too. Busy, Busy day!! Hope you all have an awesome Tuesday!! Keep Stamping!!!

Card Two-I'm on a roll

Good Morning again!! I had another card ready to go so I thought I'd share it with you. This one features one of the stamps by Humorous Seniors called Read My Lips Lucille. Isn't she a hoot!! I love these senior stamps. Don't have a lot of people to send them to but they are fun. I started the card with a Gold Shimmer card stock. I added a layer of what I think is baja breeze card stock from Stampin Up, then a layer of DP from DCWV. I die cut using the scalloped oval a piece of Cameo Coral card stock from Stampin Up and then cut my image out with the oval and popped it up with dimensionals. My sentiment is actually three words I put together from a misc. set I purchased at Michael's. It has all kinds of words. I added some bling on both sides...this is actually bling for flip flops but it works so nicely on cards too. Added a ribbon made with the Bow Maker and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The Humorous Seniors line of stamps can be purchased from http://www.ibrakeforstamps.com. This is also the new site to purchase the Wild Orchid Craft flowers. They do not carry all of the flowers but they do carry some and are looking to expand their selection too. So as an enabler, lol, I tell ya stop on by if you get a chance. Thanks for stopping by!! Have an awesome day!! Rubber Hugs, Kim

Back with an Easter Card

Good Morning Maggie Lovers!! It's been a while again. Seems every time I turn around something is coming up in our little world preventing me from being able to craft and blog. ARGH!!!! Card making is my stress relief and I need good dose of it!! So today I have not one but two cards for you!! Felt so good to finally color and create. I had this Maggie colored and ready to go, all I had to do was put her on a card. I started with a Cameo Coral base from Stampin Up. Then a layer of maybe baja breeze? CS from SU, followed by a layer of DP from DCWV. I colored Tilda with copics, sorry I don't have the colors because I did this a while back. I then popped Tilda up with dimensionals. I embellished with a bow made with my bow made easy (love that thing) some flowers from WOC and a few pearls from my stash. The weather has been wicked here the last few days. Can you believe we are still getting SNOW!! Enough already!! Mother nature is really pulling a fast one on us. It's time for sunshine and flowers. No more snow!!! I guess though I shouldn't complain too much after hearing about what is happening in other areas of the country. My friend lives in Raleigh, NC and they saw a tornado rip through there. The scary thing is she slept through the whole thing?!?!?! It could always be worse I guess, so I should be thankful it's just some snow. Hope some of you can find your way back to my blog. I know it's been a while and that it has been sporadic. Love all your comments, they mean so much to me and of course so do you!! Have a terrific Monday!! Rubber Hugs, Kim
