Simply the Best

I've been spending a lot of time at SCS on a new thread called PIF swap, or Pay it Forward. I've traded out quite a few of my sets in the last week. I made this Thank You card using one of those sets and will be sending it to the person I got it from. The set is called Simply the Best and I love it. Here are the supplies I used: Creamy Caramel and Really Rust card stock, Really Rust Classic Ink and a strip of Out Law DP all from Stampin' Up! The white is from an unknown source. This card will go postal tomorrow...Thanks for looking!

60 Sucks!

My Sister in-law and I have this thing going where we try to out-do each other every year on our birthdays. She's a couple of years younger than I, but don't ever tell her I admitted it, so every year I get her an age card for her birthday. She turns 60 next week and I wanted to let her know what it's like to be 60. So instead of getting her one of those "you know you're getting older" cards I made her this one. 60 Sucks! was printed out on the computer and the suckers are from SU's Very Punny. I'm sending this in a box with 60 suckers. I hope she likes it. Thanks for looking............Rita

Stippled Rose Quickie

I had a few minutes today and wanted to try something new. I've never done the Poppin' Pastels technique and thought I'd give it a try. I stamped the image on white card stock with VersaMark and then chalked it with non SU shimmery chalks. I then cut out the image and glued it to the black card stock circle and glued that to So Saffron card front. I used my tracing wheel from my sewing box to make the holes around the outside for the faux stitching. The ribbon was attached with a glue dot and the sentiment is from Warmest Regards stamp set. All stamps and card stock is from Stampin' Up!

Happy Friday!!!!

I had a few minutes today to play and decided to do this scrapbook page. I've been wanting to get it done for a long time and now I finally have it finished. This is an it's all about ME page and I used Stampin' Ups Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' kit, some assorted stickers and Karen Foster Snap Stamps. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you'll be able to read what all it says on the page.
Thanks for looking and have a super weekend..........Rita

A Request and A Workshop Card

i.r. stamper asked to see all the one sheet wonder cards I did for Christmas. So here they are, back by popular demand........ This is the card we made at our workshop Saturday. I know I said no more Christmas Cards but this was a workshop and I didn't know that we were going to do Christmas, Sorry. We loved this set so much that everyone ordered it. It's called Fabulous Flowers and it's just that, fabulous! I see it as an all occasion set. It wasn't meant to be a Christmas set, but look at the beautiful Christmas Card we made using it.
Be prepared to see a lot of this set in the future. The sentiment came from Star-Studded Season, another set I like that I'm also getting.

I'm cleaning and moving things around in my stamping room again and I can't get in there to stamp. If I don't get done by Wednesday I won't have anything to share with you until next week. I have two more things for this week and that's it. Cross your fingers that I get it done soon, my back is killing me and I don't go back to PT until next week. Until tomorrow, thanks for looking and have a great evening.......Rita

The Last Christmas Card, Maybe.....

Maybe next week I can work on something other than Christmas Cards. I have all I need for this year with quite a few left over. I sent all my leftover cards to Debbi to be sent over seas for the Cards for the Troops program. This is such a great program and it makes me feel good to know I'm helping in some way, even if it is just sending cards.
Today I'm sharing another Christmas Card I made last week. This one is just a simple and super quick card. The tree is from the Merry and Bright set and the saying is from Happy Everything. All supplies are from Stampin' Up.
I guess you've noticed I haven't been keeping up with my blog lately. The reason for this is I'm not sure anyone is actually reading or looking anymore. It's hard to find time to make something special to share when you're not sure anyone is even going to see it. So, with that being said after next week I might take some time off. I'll let you know next Friday for sure and for how long. Thanks for looking and have a great week-end.

Another Christmas Card and I've Been Tagged

Here's another card I did the other day. I really like these colors together.
The tree was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Gold EP. The corners were punched using the Photo Corner Punch. All supplies are Stampin' Up! Thanks for looking...........Rita

I've Been Tagged
I've been tagged by my friend Laura over at Lu-la's Corner (thanks Laura). This one is stamping/scrapbooking related; FUN!!!RULES: Answer the questions and tag 5 people to do the same. Make sure you let the people that you are tagging know that they have been tagged.Here goes:

1) If you could have $100 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?- This is easy. It has to be the paper!

2) If you had to choose between using only stamps or rub-ons, which would you choose?- STAMPS!!! Although rub-ons are nice sometimes.

3) If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts, but could only do one for a whole year, which would you do? I guess it would have to be the scrapbooking. I'm soooo far behind

.4) Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home?- I would love to own my own business, so I have to go with owning a scrapbook store. (Think of it as a really big scrapping room).

5) What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style?- Right now I guess I would have to say Simple and easy.

Now to tag five people. Well I'm not sure who hasn't already been tagged so I'm going to keep this one to myself. If you're reading this consider yourself tagged.

Happy Birthday Chris

I made this card today for my Nephew in-law Chris. I used the lighthouse stamp from Winds of Grace set and the DP is from the Pallet O' Prints. Card stock and ink is Close to Cocoa and the faux stitching was done with the uni-ball Signo Gel Pen. I added the initial brad C for Chris.
I hope he likes it. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Thanks for looking..........Rita

Happy Birthday Lindsay

I made this card for my nephew's girl friend. You can't see it but I put glitter in the center of the flowers. This is the first time I've used Baroque Motif stamp set, this one belongs to my demonstrator. I wasn't sure I really liked it but now that I've seen it in action I think I'm going to have to order one of my very own. I love the way this card turned out. I used Linen background on white card stock and stamped the main image over that.
Thanks for looking........Rita
