Almost there...

Sorry, it has been awhile... I am almost home and cannot wait to get back to normal life. My husband is in Ok finishing up pilot training and the girls and I have been in Denver the past 2 weeks waiting for our home in Utah. We will finally be leaving my grandparents (it has been great here) and moving to our home in Layton where my husband will join me in a few months! I am so excited to set up my stamp room and post some new things from the new cat!! Hang in there with me, I will be back so so soon!! I miss you all

Spring Swap

This was my first attempt at the spring swap. I felt like making a "trendy" card and since black and white are really fashionable this spring this is where I went with it. However I was afraid the other participants would not agree, so I kept the design and changed the color scheme! The pictures are not great, but I used cool caribbean, Gable Green and Perfect Plum CS and Chalks! Then for an accent I uded some Stickles on the flower. I love this set, Doodle This, I really hope it makes it into the new catalog!! Enjoy!

Stamping 3 year old!

Skyler stamped her first birthday card for her friend Claire. She used Pretty Princess stamps, Only Orange and Pink Passion CS with Green Galore ribbon and Diamond Dust! It really turned out cute. This is a great set for little girls!

Got Stickles?

This great color chart was put together by Cindy

Thanks so much this is Awesome!

Stickles. Stickles are a glitter and glue in one. Imbed baubles, other dimensional objects, or use alone as a glitter accent. I was recently asked by a customer, Shawna, what were the coordinating 30 Stickles colors compared to the 48 colors offered by Stampin' Up (SU).

Here are my suggestions. Keep in mind these colors merely coordinate with and are no where near exact matches.
Stickles - SU

Copper, Platinum, Silver, Golden Rod, Gold - No SU color available that is similar
Xmas Red - Real Red
Candy Cane - Ruby Red
Magenta - Pink Passion
Lavender - Lavender Lace
Purple - n/a
Orange Peel - Only Orange
Fruit Punch - Regal Rose
Pink - Pixie Pink
Dark Blue - Lovely Lilac
Starry Night - Lovely Lilac
Yellow - Yoyo Yellow
Eucalyptus - n/a
Patina - Handsome Hunter
Lime Green - Old Olive
Green - Glorious Green
Waterfall - Buckaroo Blue*
Turquoise - Tempting Turquoise
Aqua - Cool Caribbean*
Holly - Garden Green
Black Diamond - Basic Black

* these colors are only available through SU this year (2007).

The 'clear' Stickles - there are five (5). These all dry clear; however, the difference is in the hues of the glitter within.

Star Dust is clear with aurora borealis (rainbow) hues.
Diamond has only the gold/champagne sparkle from the AB spectrum.
Crystal has the yellow/green from the AB spectrum, Icicle is similar to StarDust except the size of the glitter is round and larger.
Frosted Lace has irridscent pearl glitter.

Another Doodle!

This card is for my Grandpa, "Papa" who after 45 years quit smoking!! He is doing great and we could not be more proud of him.

So my challenge with this card was to use "flowers" for a man. I thought the color choices created a western appeal with a touch of masculinity! What do you think? I love this set!

Doodle This Fun

This Spring Mini set is my favorite! I love this set, Doodle This! I cased the format from splitcoaststampers, it is 1 piece of cardstock cut in 2, then scored like normal cards then in half again in 3 of the sections. To hold it in place I put some ribbon through the entire card and tied to close. I Really Love this set!!
