Newton Connecticut

My heart goes out to the families who have suffered during this time, especially to the first responders.  The taking of a life is bad enough but to take the lives of 20 innocent children there are no words.

I am praying that we can all get through this and find someway to make this world a safer and better place for all.

This Holiday Season the heavenly angels won't being singing joy they will be crying for the 20 angels we have lost.

To the teachers who risked there lives to keep the children safe Thank You to the ones who lost there lives you are Hero's who made the ultimate sacrifice.

God Bless Us.

October Stamp A Stack Class

My SAS class is this coming Friday October 26 from 7-9 PM.  These are the cards we will be making.
 I painted the snowflakes on the above card with Dazzling Details.  I put the Details in a small container and painted it across the snowflakes with a brush and let it dry before I attached the rhinestones.
 For this card I painted the rhinestones with a purple Sharpie and then attached them to the card.
This card I cased and it really looks much better in a picture than it does in person so for the class I have added some changes.  I put a small More Mustard brad in the lower right hand corner.  For the stamped image I colored the bird in Tangerine Tango and punched it out with a 1" circle punch and attached it over the More Mustard bird with a dimensional.  Card looks much better now in person.

Michelle's Challenge

My upline Michelle Halleen sent us a challenge and I took her up on it and will be sending her these cards.  The challenge was to make 5 different cards from 1 stamp set.  The stamp set I picked was one we were given at Convention this year: Moving Forward it's the Ronald McDonald set for 2012.  I enjoyed doing this and I hope you like the results.

October Woo Hoo Stampers Swap

Tags!  I don't do tags!  I don't like tags!  I make them and never use them I always forget about them and I was going to do that this time too but who am I to miss out on a challenge.  So I made the tags and then had to put them in something and something that would be easy to ship.  So I came up with this.

September Stamp A Stack

My Stamp S Stack class is on September 21, 2012 from 7-9 PM.  These are the cards we will be making and everyone will make 2 of each design and this class included envelopes which will also be decorated. 

 This card is unique because of the way it opens.  First open the scalloped circle and then the top note piece and the Raspberry Ripple is the inside of the card.  Something different.

Southern Belles and Woo Hoo Stampers Swap

Decided to do the same card for both swaps the only thing I did was use different buttons. On this one I used the Naturals and on the other the new Brushed Bronze buttons.  Love the way these look on the card.  I also used the Woodgrain Embossing folder for the background it's hard to see here but I love the way it looks.

August Woo Hoo Stampers Swap

I just love the Frightening Feline stamp from the new mini.  I used the Howlstooth and Scareybones DSP.  For the eyes and the collar I used the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details and when I attached it to the card the eyes took one an orange hue instead of a red one.  Got to love it.

July Class Cards

 The inside of this card is so cool and really not hard to do at all.  Outside is just a normal looking card.

This last card I cased from Mary Fish.  Thank you Mary.  The July 28 class is late in the month, I wanted to be able to share convention with the class attendees.  Convention was a blast.  Contact me if you would like more information on making these cards.
