Party!! Get your Blog Hop On!

Welcome to the May 15th & 16th Blog Tour !!

This tour features 22 blogs! Each blog will show case a beautiful project using items from Stampin' Up!'s - Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog.

Don’t forget to bookmark your favorite blogs as the links that make up this tour will disappear at midnight on May 16th.
I am showcasing something I LOVE and TRUST ME If you need to make something quickly and amazing well grab your Rub-ons and what perfect set to use then the Summer Loves that are available in our Stampin Up Occasions Mini Catalog!

Let's get started shall we!

Of course if you have been following my blog then you know I can't seem to put down my Textured Plates! (I do use them with my Sweet Big Shot) As well as my fav. cardstock Kraft cardstock. As you can see this set of rub ons is so wonderful and makes such a beautiful card with the perfect image.

This card was inspired by one I had received from one of my many fun swaps. I did change the elements and of course I used my rub-ons I cut out the butterfly and paper pierced (LOVE THAT) Also I made this into a 4x4 card. I already know this will be a little card I will be using very soon!

Now this little box came about because one of my AWESOME Stampin Addict Sistah's was so wonderful to spoil me and send me loads of matchbox cut outs so I could get a change to play until I am able to purchase the die myself! Isn't this box so cute! This would be a wonderful little box to put a little trinket/jewelry for that graduate in your life!

Need a card for an amazing friend.. Here you go. I almost didn't even want to use this Rub-on because its so beautiful! BUT since it was for this cool Blog Hop and I still have 1 more since you get 2 sheets of these images lol. I thought Why not :)

Now onto my last card that I want to send to all of you for stopping by at my Blog a simple but sweet and to the point Thank you! I hope you enjoyed your stop here :)

Diva Challenge #127

Hello everyone!

Time for another weekly Diva Challenge! Are you ready.. This week we have a sketch for you to try!

For this week I used a set that I've had for a while and hadn't used it! I know GASP!.. I had gotten God's Beauty but in Spanish as I really love this sentiment and it so beautiful in Spanish so I had to get it :)

Again I went with a Kraft Cardstock base and used this set to it fullest :) I actually used all the stamps for this card! The butterfly I stamped and colored w/my Stampin Up markers.
For the flower I used vellum cardstock and used Whisper white under it to stamp the flower.
Did you see I used my Textured Plates again! lol I can't help it they are so much fun and so easy so why not!
I hope you guys will stop over at our Diva Blog and play along with us! Have a wonderful Afternoon and I shall be back with the Blog Hop!

Diva Challenge #126

Oh yes it's your fav. tardy Diva! Another new challenge this week that brings again one of my fav. toys if I do say so myself! The BIG SHOT.. Man do I love that machine because in no time you can have a beautiful creation.

Here is my little creation for the week. I used 2 Sizzlets to create my little flower. After I I went and grabbed my spiral punch (I really am loving that punch as of late) and used one of my textured dies for the dots on my flower.

The flower was created with kraft cardstock so I could do create the coloring as I did. How fun is that?! I then cut out 2 little Leaves (love that sizzlet) and then used a piece of Urban Oasis and used my spiral punch attached it to a Kraft card baseand here we have it!

Oh and I used a little sentiment Rub-on from Chateau Bella and Kraft Satin ribbon and I have my simple pretty card.

Now hop on over to our Diva Blog and check out the rest of the creations from the other Divas.
As always I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day and thank you for stopping by!

Ever After More then Just for I Do's!

Hello everyone!

Hoping everyone is having a wonderful week. Here in NY it is rain and rain and MORE Ram's games have been canceled he's not too much of a happy camper I tell you that much but for me the stamper well I don't mind it because its made me buckle down and well stamp (ok doesn't take that much to make me stamp! HA..)

So Remember last week I shared all those cards I was making... well I thought really now am I going to stamp ALL the cards the same oh man I can't... and then I thought hmm do I have a Wedding set.. hmm NO I don't then I remember HEY since I'm a demo with AWESOME customers I was rewarded a free set from the Sale-A-Bration sale we had. SOOO I clicked over and picked my free set which I decided would be : Ever After... and before I knew it.. Mr. Brown was knocking on my door with my free goodies.. IT ROCKS TO BE DEMO! lol..

Then I thought OH MY GOSH Mother's Day is around the corner! I have to make some cards and then I looked at my new set and thought WELL HEY why not... and here are my Mother Day Cards! Ok if your a mom and happen to be a friend of mine too look away... cause you'll be getting one of these! HA...

Here is a close up of the cards :

OH and Look I even stamped the inside! Ha... (I used my All Holidays set for the sentiment)

If your wondering how I got my multi colors on my heart well THAT was the fun part I just took my Stampin Up Markers and scribbled on the stamp and stamped.. Don't they look like I worked so hard Ha.. I love that image and how fun not having to worry how I was inking it up cause they all are unique and pretty!

Well I am off as now I need getting them addressed so they can be sent of! As always thank you for stopping by and don't forget tomorrow is Diva Wednesday!

Kristina's 50th Color Inspiration that is.. I went over to look at it and I think that a quarter of all bloggers have gone to play cause she has some INSANNNNNNNNNNNNNNE goodies to give away to celebrate..In my style I waited last minute to play along too. Wasn't actually going to cause well I actually got nervous w/so many entries But you know what like Nike says "Just Do It" lol..

So Now look what we all had to play with!

Aren't those colors SCREAMING to be played with? So this is my little number.. A Baby card.. BUT I really felt like throwing a curve and created something I don't think I really ever would, but I like how it came together...

So out of my element Who would have thought I would make a card like this.. BUT there it is again.. elements and more elements! I really had fun playing with these colors. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. We have to go to a Party shortly but I wanted post my little card before we left. As always Thank you for stopping By!
