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...

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.
