A Fairy Good Friend Belles n Whistles

Lots of time stamping lately creating some fun quick cards. This is an adorable stamp from Belles n Whistles called A fairy good Friend. Isn't she adorable. I colored this with copics and used vellum to have the wings pop off the card. Stickles are used on the dress of the fairy and flowers. I slapped on some glittery swirls for a finishing touch.

Happy Stamping until next time!!

Another Some Odd Girl

Here is another quick card using my Balloon Kayle stamp from Some Odd Girl. I think this one is perfect for those pre-teen cards! I also used Bazzill papers and some florals from Making Memories with my copics.

Some Odd Girl

Hey friends,something different today with my first Some Odd Girl Stamp! It's adorable and I love it! This card is for my daughters friends birthday.
First, it's been a long couple days here for us with the floods in NE Pennsylvania. My little town is next to West Pittston in the Wilkes-Barre area. Had they not built a dirt dyke the area would be flooded very bad. We are lucky but many friends are not. Since there isn't anywhere to go with the flooding, I stamped!

For this I also used Bazzil papers, copics, palette ink, memento ink, stickles, TAC patterned paper and a balloon punch. I'm putting this in the Some Odd Girl challenge. It required using stitching. I achieved this by using my scor buddy for evenly spaced spots to connect the dots to show faux stitching. I have to get a sewing machine for cards.
Besides using a scor pal for evenly spaced "spots" to connect for faux stitching you can use plastic canvas. See my tutorial for 3 great uses for the plastic canvas.

Simply Stamped Support the Girls

Above is my close up of my image paper pieced with stickles. ( I love stickles and glitter )
This is a set that was in the new TAC catty, Support The Girls. I had to get it! My twin sister was recently diagnosed with cancer. She underwent a mastectomy and just started her chemo. She is staged a 2 and we're very optimistic she'll beat this with all they do with Breat Cancer these days.

Above is the full card, I used Maggie papers again I love it and have many packs left to use!

Thanks to those who have sent cards for me for my sister, she loved them all.

Hello Little Butterfly

I ordered some Magnolia stamps in the early spring. I think they are too cute and finally used one. This one is called Hello Little Butterfly. I layered it on , you guessed it Maggie papers on top of vellum stamped with a butterfly image from TAC. I haven't gone to any Copic classes so I hope my coloring and shading is alright. I think it

Above is the full card. Yes, there are stickles on the butterfly on her shoulder. :)

I think this is really cute and simple.
I hope you've enjoyed my posts this week and I hope to have time to do more every weekend!
If you would like to see more cards with transpareny's used visit my Tutorials tab (under contruction) or search my site for them.

Totally Simple Stamping...

....done on this card. Simple layering done with Maggie again. I used Marvy punches here to layer on bazzill cardstock.
I love this saying from a TAC stamp set that I forget the name of.
It's too cute..!
Enjoy your naps and stamping!
I hope your enjoying these latest cards while I have time to stamp.
I've cleaned out my craft space and 2 big bags of trash later I can see the desktop!

Fairy Wishes duo...

These cards are also using Fairy Wishes Nina B. I used simply layering on Maggie papers and Martha Stewart butterfly punch, bling and bazzill cardstock.

Above and Below you can see the full sized cards. Simply stamped adding bling to pop the cards.

Again, Happy Stamping until next time.
Let me know your thoughts... I will surely miss TAC's stamp sets and papers. However, I will surely use up my stash until it's gone.

Card making day, revisiting vellum

I have finally found some time to create after cleaning out my craft area. I've been using my TAC sets that I purchased from the new catalogue before TAC closed it's doors. My photos arean't very bright to show the Maggie papers.  Above is a close up of the butterfly paper pieces from Fairy Wishes stamp set from Nina B.
Above is the full image. I stamped the large butterfly on vellum, stuck it to the cardfront with brads, then layered the butterfly, ribbon and stamped the saying.
The picture doesn't give the card it's justice. I think I'll be making several more of these since I like it.
Happy Stamping!

A grand tribute...Bloghop

to TAC. Although I am not participating, I Have to share these links from my Angel friends. As most of you have heard The Angel Company™ has closed. I will truly miss the company and the stamps. The friends I've made will be with me forever which is a great consolation.  Please take some time and surf through these links to view the fabulous new stamps that were available. This years catty was the best ever just the economy was not.

I will truly miss TAC and what it stood for. I will still be blogging when I have time just not a demonstrator.
