World's Best Trophy

Hi Stampers,

Does someone ever just touch your heart and make you so grateful that they are part of your life? Well, that's how I feel all the time about my children but I think sometimes they need to be reminded of how much they really are loved even if they are adults. Don't you?

Our son, Cody, is no exception and I just felt he needed to know how much he means to us. He always surprises me with the depth of his heart.

I used the World's Best Trophy and the best part---it comes with 53 photopolymer stamps!!! WOWZA!!! This set is great for making ANYTHING family.

The Color Theory DSP is so versatile. I love the paper that looks like paint chips, weathered wood and color splatters.

Remember, you too, can make this card with supplies ordered from my website.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #249-I am Thankful for You


Hi Stampers,

This week's sketch is all about home to me. At this time of the year, I always feel like "nesting". Don't you? Cooking, baking, decorating your home for comfort and what not. Well my card this week shows the beautiful fall colors showing in my neighborhood. Such a vibrant pallet and just plain gorgeous. I used sponge daubers in Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to get the colors of my leaves. I then used the leaf framelit from Colorful Season to cut them out. Some of the leaves I "popped" up on dimensionals to give even more dimension. I also punched out some leaves from the new leaf punch. The wood textures paper  worked great for my background. I then cut out a wreath from the Swirly Scribbles and embossed the sentiment from Painted Harvest in gold. 




Would you like to recreate this card for your own stash? Remember you can order everything from my website.  Thanks for visiting!!!


Just Married Car

Hi Stampers,

My niece, Alyssa, just recently got married and I thought it would be fun to make a car shaped card for the occasion. She looked so beautiful on her day.





To make this card, you need to cut approx. 1-1/2" off the top piece of a  4 x 11 piece of cardstock. I used the corner rounder from the envelope punch board on a lot of the pieces.

Painted Harvest Cut Away Card

Hi Stampers,

I think I am stuck in Painted Harvest mode. I guess with the changing colors occurring earlier this year and just the feeling of Fall in the air it's easy to reach for this stamp set. This time I used the cut away card technique. I managed to use some retired dsp in Elegant Eggplant and the same color in candy dots. The flower is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum. For the center of the flower I used Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant dots.
