Sympathy Kiss

Today's card is for CC189 (Pink Chocolate Kissed) at SCS. Unfortunately I needed to make a sympathy card today. My daughter's gymnastics coach's Grandmother passed away yesterday. She had recently been moved into hospice care and has said that she's "ready to go home". The card base is SU Vanilla cardstock.

I cut out the ovals with my Creative Memories cutting system and stamped the Pink Pirouette layer with the Victorian Diamond backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The sentiment is Flourishes' Flourished Words stamp set. I stamped it on Vanilla cardstock, cut out with the Scallop Circle Punch, then sponged it with Dark Chocolate and Pink Pirouette.

How it went...

Here's a link to the GAC website. There is a video showing how it all went down!

Paisley Party Pranks in Jewel's words

Here's what Jewel had to say about the pranks Saturday night.

What fun!

We ended up getting tickets to the Brad Paisley, Chuck Wicks, Jewel concert last night. Not only did we get tickets, we also got a "Meet & Greet" with Jewel. While we waited to meet her, they treated us to a wine and cheese bar. SO COOL!!!

It was the final night of the tour so the pranks were in high gear! Chuck Wicks was tarred and feather by the crew - he kept singing throughout the whole thing! Then during his "Cinderella" song they put pictures of him in the Cinderella dress all over the screen, and then they played a video of his girlfriend, Julianne Hough telling him how she wanted to break up with him! Too funny!

For Jewel there was a rather large man wearing a flesh colored latex suit lowered down in a harness. Later he was seen dancning with the band.

Everyone sounded amazing and we all really enjoyed the show. Here are some highlights!

Brad had a disturbance from Borat.

A Few of Her Favorite Things!

Hello! Today's card is for SC198 at Splitcoast. I was able to do a birthday card for my Mom. Her birthday is on the 20th. Mom loves birds, buttons, flowers, sewing, and the color red so I was able to incorporate a bit of all these into this card.

I first stamped the bird from the "Always" set in Riding Hood Red, then in Versamark so I could heat emboss with clear embossing powder. The Dahlia is done in a sheet of double sided patterned paper from the Urban Garden pack. I used buttons and red firs brads to secure the card's matchbox flap. I also used it in the center of the dahlia. The ribbon, with it's double-stitching, is used to represent all the sewing she used to do.

So, what do you think?

A Simple Thank You

Today's card is for the Color Challenge at Splitcoast. It was to use Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss. I have chocolate chip, but Papertrey Ink's Dark Chocolate was handy so I used it instead. Besides, I like dark chocolate better anyway! :)

CC187 ingredients: Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, PTI Dark Chocolate; Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Versamark; Accessories: clear embossing powder, Fairy Tale Ribbon, square scallop punch

Look What We Did!

WOOHOO! How exciting! SheetLoad Shortcuts featured mine and another card on their blog Saturday! You can find the post here. Be sure to order their clear and/or frosted card fronts while you're there! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

2 New Cards!

Well it's been a while, but I'm finally getting back into stamping. I have to say I'm really inspired by this new clear cardstock from Shortcuts. I made a birthday card for my DD's teacher using the Cakeabella stamp from Stamping Bella.

The other card I have for you is the one I made for my step-dad's 75th Birthday! I used the "U R A Hoot" stamp set by Kim Hughes which can be found at Cornish Heritage Farms. The paper is from Papertrey Ink.
