It's BACK TO SCHOOL over at the Sisters in Stamping blog. Here is my project for this week--

I used my NEW set of BigShot dies Typeset Alphabet to cut some letters. I filled the box with Oatmeal Cookies. Super fast and super cute! Gotta love that.

Happy Stamping!

Sparkly Spritzers for Fabulous Friday

Welcome to a sparkly Fabulous Friday! The Sisters are showcasing the spritzers in the Idea Book & Catalog this week for Fabulous Friday. They are one of the new products in the catalog and a whole lot of fun to play with. Here is my card-- 
Here is a close up of the sparkly spray! 

I mixed my own spritz for this card, here is the recipe:
10 drops of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
fill remaining spritzer bottle with rubbing alcohol and shake.
Don't do what I did....put the rubbing alcohol in first and then the Shimmer Paint, when I put the spritzer back together it over flowed onto my desk. What a mess!!

Thank-you for stopping by!
Happy Stamping,

2012 Holiday Mini Catalog Favorite!

It's my week over at the Sisters in Stamping blog and we are picking out our favorites from the newly released 2012 Holiday Mini Catalog. There are so many really nice sets it was difficult picking just one...but, I'm sure you'll be seeing more from me regarding this new catalog! I finally settled on a set called Snowflake Soiree. Here is my card--

I know snowflakes in August?? But just looking at them makes me feel cooler....and it has been SO stinking HOT here anything you can do to make you feel cooler is a good thing! I was very happy to see this set in the Mini Catalog, you see, I was really bummed when they retired Serene Snowflakes because I used it all the time! I tried a new technique for the sky looking background, there is a video tutorial on this blog that shows how. I had to take it and make it my own though, I did the heat embossing first and the snowflakes acted as a resist on the watercolor paper.

Thanks for coming by!

Happy Stamping

Fabulous Masculine Cards

   The Sisters in Stamping are showcasing Masculine cards this week. Here is my card--

I used one of my BRAND NEW stamp set that I received FREE from Stampin' Up! It's called By the Seashore, and it is so nice. I was very happy to see a set with sea shells in the new 2012-13 Idea Book & Catalog. The technique I used is called Collage, it was the very first technique I learned when I started stamping years ago. The colors I used are Marina Mist, River Rock and Soft Suede, it looks very "beachy" and it's a perfect card for this weeks Masculine theme that Debbie picked out.

Swing by the Sisters in Stamping blog and look at the other Masculine cards for this week!

Happy Stamping--

Arroof Bark Bark! *

Hey! Welcome to this Fabulous Friday post. We are playing with Embossing Folders over at the Sisters in Stamping blog today. Here is my card-- 

    I used a new set called Animal Talk (love it!) to make a card using the Embedded Embossing Technique. I punched some 1" circles out in Gumball Green, More Mustard and Island Indigo, I adhered them to a piece of Whisper White and then ran it through the BigShot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. Really like the way the circles melt into the background, it gives this card a playful feel to it. Make sure you go check out what the other Sisters are doing too!
   I'm participating in the Freshly Made Sketch FMS46 for this week also.

Happy Stamping!
