Just a POP of Color

 It's Rachel's turn over at the Sisters in Stamping blog and she picked Black and White with a pop of color. I've been having a hard time coming up with something...that's one of the reasons why my post is late! Here is the card I finally came up with--


I like it!! My pop of color is Daffodil Delight and it's on the simple side. One would think the card was going to be extra fancy considering how long it took me to come up with it. This stamp set is one of the 2015 SAB free sets, it's called You Brighten My Day.

This is the other reason my post is late--


This is my little Rudy, and he hasn't been feeling well, I think he has a cold. He likes to come and sit right in the middle of what I'm working on at my desk. How can I say, " no, I won't hold you" to that cute little face?

Thank-you for coming by today-- happy Stamping! Karla c(:

2015 Sale-A-Bration-- A Happy Thing!.

Thank-you for stopping by today! Over at the Sisters in Stamping blog it's Friday and that means we are putting together our weekly Fabulous Friday post. Here is my card--


We are showcasing a few of the NEW 2015 Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, I used A Happy Thing. I used the Daffodil Delight and the Old Olive Blendibilities sets to color up my lemons. The lemons are stamped on So Saffron card stock and colored with the lightest and the darkest markers in the set. Also, I used the lightest marker to color the line of rhinestones and the white embossing (Love Life) that I stamped and heated on the black card stock-- Blendibilities Three Ways.

Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

Thank-you, Thank-you

The Sisters in Stamping are saying "Thank-you" this week for Fabulous Friday-- here is my card.


I used a set called An Open Heart-- I don't know the first time I saw that set I thought of Mistletoe and I couldn't shake that until I put it down on paper. Just one of those things.

Thank-you for comin' by!! 
Happy Stampin'

A Little Gift

Hey!! Hopefully you have noticed that I was gone for a couple of weeks...you know it's just that time of year! I know you know what I'm talking about. Here is my project today for the Sisters in Stamping blog --


 A couple of years ago a friend of mine gave me a candle like this one, I remade it with the DSP stack from the Holiday Mini Catalog called Trim the Tree and tied it up with the Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon-- also from same catalog.


Here is a picture of it lit, there is a tea light in the bottom that is replaceable. 

Thank-you for coming by today! 
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Showcasing Ornaments



I used Versamark and stamped them with the large star from the stamp set Bright & Beautiful. Sprinkled silver embossing powder over top and used a small dry paint brush to remove the powdered that stuck to ornament. After it cooled I attached the rhinestone. I found the porcelain ornaments here: online. But the last time I was at big box store ("M"s) they had them in the Christmas Decor section.
