The snowflakes are part of the set called Gina's winter bundle. Go visit the Melonheadz blog to get some freebies and see some of the other amazing images.

Inspired Stamps

Hi Welocme to Inspired Stamps. This week we were asked to make a set of Christmas Cards. I kept mine simple to focus on the Scripture and tree. I used Luke 2:14

Here is the first card. I used DSP from Stampin Up. This one uses the green side with white ribbon.

 This one is a different layout with pearls around the mat and the ribbon is red.
 This one I choose to stamp in blue to go with the DSP. I used white ribbon.
The last one is using the tree side and green ribbon. I love how easy these were to make and will not cost extra in shipping.

Hi, I am starting on Christmas gifts. This cute image is from Some Odd Girl. It is a hot chocolate holder or gift card holder. I haven't decided which is why it is blank. The snowflakes were cut with my Silhouette.

Happy Thanksgiving

 I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  I have so much to thank God for in all the blessings he has given me this year even through the tough times. I want to thank all my followers for sticking around. The first card uses Inspired Stamps set and I was playing with my distress inks to create the background. The triangles were cut with the silhouette.
This second card was cut with the Sihouette using Craft Brown Treasure. I just love how well this cut. The background was created with different mists. All Papers on both cards can be found at Paper Temptress which is having a 25% off everything sale now through Monday.

Pink Christmas

I am loving playing with my silhouette and distress inks. I cut the ornament out and then colored the different parts with different distress inks. The base is BubbleGum pink pop tones. Grey Linen is paired with the Hambly pink grid. I think this would be a perfect Christmas card for a friend.

Thanks a Latte

This cute image is from Sweet n Sassy. The saying is from a retired stamp set. I used different mediums for the whip cream and coffee. Smooch paint was added to cup. The shape was cut using the Silhouette.

Welcome, this week Inspired Stamps DT was asked to create something with give thanks theme. I so much to be thankful despite the trials. I choose Thanksgiving set for my card. I love the idea of two step stamping. I first used the solid leaf with different distress inks than stamped outline with Distress Ink Tattered Twigs.

Inspired Stamps

 First Inspired Stamps is having an amazing sale. Now is the time to get those sets you have been wanting. Now to share the ornament I made using Tags. I stamped the Tag outline 8 times than cut out and glued them together.

The front uses Luke 2:14. I used stars from another set that I can't remember right now. I kept the front simple and just added some smooch paint to the stars. Make sure to head to Inspired Stamps blog to see the amazing work the other DT did.

Ok, if you like things neat and clean, turn away. This is just my main work space. Yes, I am too wondering how I can create anything in that disaster. I have about 3 to 4 projects started but nothing finished. I am easily distracted these days. I am still struggling adjusting to my new health challenges. For me, it is being gluten free and asthma that doesn't like the constant change in our weather here in CA. I want to thank all my followers and wish the best to everyone. I hope to be back to blogging in the future. I do have Inspired Stamps projects coming up. Also, Inspired Stamps release there new amazing stamps tonight.

This card uses new dies and Just for You Halloween additions from There She Goes Stamps I am loving using guaze and decopauge glue on my projects. This is for There She Goes Sketch challenge & Ribbon Carousel challenge of Halloween theme. I used black netting and purple twine.

Inspired Stamps

This week the Inspired Stamps team was asked to create a project with scripture. There are so many amazing ones to choose frome. I choose this wonderful one from the set called Amazing Grace. I went with fall colors because that is what is covering my desk. I think I am hoping this will bring fall to my area since we are in the 90's.

Note book tutorial

This week I am sharing a tutorial on altering a notebook. I choose one that is a mini composition notebook that is 3" x 4 1/2".

Here you can see the finished journal.                       This is a close up of Luke 2:14 from Inspired Stamps.

Here is note book before I started. I took a piece of DSP and cut it to size. I then colored it with Distress Inks. The paper already had the embossed snowflakes. The DSP is glued to the notebook using Decoupage glue. I find this helps hold it best. I used a bit of the decopauge on the large snowflakes too.

 One of the amazing things about Inspired Stamps is that they come with this piece of foam. It helps to make a good crisp image. I stamped my image than embossed it. I choose to keep it simpke and not color the image.

Here is another notebook using Tags.   I did the same thing as the red one. These would be great gifts for friends and family.

U Rock Multicolor

This is for Some Odd Girl sketch challenge. Sorry for the washed out look but trying to get a bunch of cards up and camera and I aren't liking each other. I used distress inks around the image. I had fun coloring this image different colors for the hair.

U Rock Green

This fantastic image is from Some Odd Girl and was colored a while back. The DSP was a light green and used Gumball green ink to darken it. Purple mats the paper. It is also for Paper Issues Facebook challenge.
