Side Step Card

Hello All,
Here is a card, I made for my DH it's not the greatest pic but I hope you get the idea.
My computer and camera are acting up so,I haven't been posting.
I think all the bugs are worked out or at least praying that they are.
Why is it that you upgrade one thing and then everything else you own then becomes incompatible & UN-discoverable? I was so upset spending the day fixing my laptop,when I could have been stamping...
Thanks for letting me vent.

Let me know what you think,

SU! Friendly Words

So every time I have seen SU! whisper white paper embossed, 
I think it is so "Regal" so I came up with this card. 
I used SU! Rich Razzleberry card stock & 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.
I used my "BIG SHOT" & a texturz plate to emboss the front of the card.
I really love using SU! wheels and the wheel guide helps me keep everything straight and in order.
I love that you can connect the two pieces so that you can essentially stamp up to a 22 inch border or
snap them together  to make a right angle corner. 
I rolled my sentiment on a 4" x 4 1/4"  piece of whisper white paper then used my SU! Stampin' Sponges to add basic gray ink to give it a distressed look.
These sponges are a great deal because they last forever.
I have had my sponges since, the first time I signed up with SU! in 2005.
You get 3 sponges but you just cut them into little wedges
depending on your preference you can get 6-8 wedges from one sponge.
Then I sewed around all the edges and placed the butterflies on each section and
added a little rhinestone for some "bling".
I made the butterflies with my  SU! Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.

Cars 2

So as many of you know Cars 2 came out at the end of June and Little "J" loves CARS!!!
So on my 2 week hiatus, I saw a pattern for a crocheted car and I thought, 
I could make a red one and Little "J" will think it's Lighting McQueen. 
So as I started my project the car was looking like a boat so, 
I winged it without a pattern and this is what I came up with...

 I may try again because if Little "J" had not taken it from me I would have done some reworking,
But all and all not bad for my first try ?

Let me know what you think,


Where has the time gone?

I can't believe it has been two weeks tomorrow since my last post...
Well I have found myself a bit uninspired lately and between potty-training and life in general, 
I took a little break. 
So I did keep busy, I was just being LAZY when it came to taking pics and writing. I really need to change that because, I really did start to "Miss my Blog Family". 
I did come up with this tri-fold card, I had to walk away from it because,I didn't like were it was going,but in the end,I think it came out okay. I used some paper scraps and an old SU! Simply Scrappin' Kit and was glad to put it to use.

Sew Simple

I hope you all had a FUN & SAFE Holiday and were able to share some downtime with Family & Friends.
We had a nice holiday weekend and Little "J" had a blast in the pool. 
We had Root Beer floats while we watched the firework show Master "D" put on and all in all had a great time.
We are trying to stay cool from the triple digit heat,but honestly it just rained a few weeks ago so we can't really complain about the heat to much. 
So last week, I tried to organize some of my paper stacks. After I searched high and low for the "perfect" graduation paper and finding it in my very own stash made me realize, I really need to figure out what I have.
So I have decided to try and CREATE with one stack at a time and hopefully my paper stacks will be put to good use and I will have room for more crafting supplies....

So here is my first Project 

All the paper came from my paper stack except for Very Vanilla & Crushed Curry (retired SU! card stock)
I used on the side. I made two cards the fronts are the same and the insides are just a bit different.
I stamped the image three times
once on the Very Vanilla and once on green paper and once on Crushed Curry.
I then cut out their dresses and attached them with snail.

I  added paper buttons with my SU! sizzlits die.

 I really enjoyed sewing the paper together for the inside of these cards,

for the stitching, I used my New Singer "Stitch Sew Quick"
I found it at Wal-mart for around $14.00 dollars and It's so fun to use.

Let me know what you think...
Happy Stamping,
