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...
This is Sophia from Kraftin Kimmie's Moonlight Whispers line. I am going to try her in my 1st Kimmie Challange. She's sassy and a little sweet. I actually stamped, colored and did my layout all in about 3 hours. That is a first for me.
Yesterday I woke up to a lovely white wonderland outside. 6 inches of snow was blanketed on the ground and looked a lot like Christmas. Needless to say after the kids went to school I started to get crafty. I have actually had Daisy colored for awhile now but did not know how I wanted to do the layout. A few hours and a big mess later, this is how she turned out. I worked on Oliver today. Same thing, he was colored just not on a card. I wish I could decide layouts so much faster. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I even had the Christmas tunes on for inspiration.
I love to color images and then fussy cut them out. My problem is what to do with them next. I have the hardest time coming up with what to do with an image and how to lay it out. Any ideas would be welcome. My Cheeky girl today took me all afternoon of cutting and shaking my head no to what I wanted to do with her and how to lay her out. Ugh! Oh well. I hope you enjoy her.
Happy Saturday! Here is my latest creation Cheeky Shooter from The Greeting Farm. She is so much fun to color and is one of my favorites. This card is going to my dad as a belated birthday card. I hope he likes it. She is colored with Copics and I used Fun Flock in white for a fuzzy cowgirl hat.
Ok. Here goes. My first official post on my blog. That just sounds weird. Lets start at the beginning. I got into stamping about 9 years ago all pre-kid. It started out very small and I took a few classes and then I was hooked. Now a few years later and a few dollars later ( really? who are we all kidding? :) I have a wonderful craft room that is finally organized! A HUGE Thank You goes out to my dear friend Rachel who really creatively encouraged me to get rid of or donate things that really did not belong in my craft room. Here are some photo's.
