About Me

My Photo
I am a mostly SAHM who is also a nursery/NICU nurse. I got into stamping about 9-10 years ago to pass the time. I have 2 kids (10 and 8) that are both in school full time and a wonderful husband of 14 years. We also have 3 Maine Coon cats that are part of our family. I really enjoy making cards and love learning new techniques. I am hoping to get more cards made now that my room is organized. Now if I could only find where I put everything...

TGF-Farm Fresh Friday-Anything BUT a Card


The Greeting Farm's Beanie Anya ready for winter.  I made this cute tag from a random tag from Michael's. Stamped Anya in Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic's then fussy cut out. The background is sprayed with Ranger's Sail Boat Blue Alcohol ink. Random glitter paper from my stash of paper (seriously-everyone has one of those right?) and the fun extra's are from the new Bundled Up set from Crate Paper. It's pretty gloomy here in Colorado so it was a perfect day to play in the craft room. I guess all that was missing was hot cocoa and Christmas music playing in the background. 
Till later.  Happy Crafting.

Tiddly Inks Challenge #119- Anything Goes

TI-Happily Ever After

I made this card for my parents 42nd Wedding Anniversary.  I just love this stamp.  It is so sweet and you just feel the love pouring out of it with just a simple touch of their heads together.

Farm Fresh Friday - Back to School Challenge

Summer?  Where did you go? 
The school bells are ringing and I now have a 5th and 3rd grader.
I love to give the kids teacher's a little something for back to school and these were my tags I made for their little bucket of goodies using The Greeting Farms Cheeky Lessons.
She is so cute!  I could not wait to color her up.  I did some fussy cutting and then paper pieced her outfit and apple. The paper pad was from MME School Daze.

Stampin Bella's Love Fest 2013 Challenge Bring on the Bling



I just LOVE the Stampin Bella Uptown Girls collection.  Here is Lucille that I made for Valentine's Day. I have several Uptown Girls in my craft room just waiting to get colored up.  I have the new Audrey that I seriously need to get working on.  She is so sophisticated.


Here is another Uptown Girl named Posh.  I made this one for my crafting bestie Rachel for her birthday this past January.

All of my cards are on Copic XPress It paper and stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I whip out my favorite Copic Markers and get coloring.  I really struggle with layouts so it is usually hit or miss on how I layout a card.  I really need to just follow other layouts that I see.  Oh well...I better get back into my craft room and play.  Happy Crafting.

February Challenges SOG and Oozak


February where did you come from? It's that time again to try my hand at a few challenges. I created this Some Odd Girl "Love me not Mae" for the SOG February Challenge and for the Anything Goes with Favorite Color Combo Oozak challenge. I stamped her with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, colored her with my trusty Copic Markers and used "With Love" 6x6 paper pad from American Crafts.  I think I got it from Target.  I am hoping to get a few Valentine cards posted soon too, but I guess I better get to finishing them first. :) Happy Crafting.

SOG January Challenge 2013


Wow! It's almost the end of January already. Where did the time go? I have had so many birthday cards to make from the end of December to January that I have not blogged them yet. So be looking for them in the very near future. But today I wanted to get my Some Odd Girl January 2013 challenge posted. The inspiration design is above and my take on it is below.  I used Baker Mae and the paper pad is from American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray paper pad. I think I bought it at Target.  She is colored with Copic's of coarse and she also has a few liquid pearls on her cupcake. Until later.  Happy Crafting.

A Little Christmas Cheer


Good morning.  I just wanted to update my blog with a few cards I made back in November.
 Where did the time go? Between shopping, baking and holiday things at school, time just slipped by. This in one of my new favorite Christmas themed Kraftin Kimmie's.  Her name is Madeline. I will try to post a few more that I made tomorrow, until then I better get back to wrapping and baking.
 Happy Crafting.
