Wish I was at the shore card...

Well, that's not REALLY the name of this card, but I live 45 minutes from the Jersey Shore (the FOR REAL Jersey Shore) and my house felt like a SAUNA today, so this card became my "vacation" that I needed from the heat! LOL!

I used an older Stampin' Up set, Tropical Party, and I created the palm trees, flowers, and sea grass from it! To make the Sunset over the ocean, I used Ruby Red, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight Inks, then I used Marina Mist to make the ocean and this was on Whisper White card stock. I backed the sunset on a piece of Tempting Turquoise. I am in the process of uploaded some videos to You Tube, and they will have the FULL Tutorial on there! In the mean time, if you would be interested in purchasing these items, check out my Stampin' Up set at:

The Earth Laughs In Flowers Card

Yea!!! My first card I made using items that I got from my Stampin' Up order yesterday! Its ALL items from the summer mini!!! Its stamp sets Flower Fest and Fabulous Florets. The card stock is Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, and Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper. The ink I used is Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasibi. I used Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder and Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. You will also need: Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Snail Adhesive.
Now, I made a VERY sad attempt at making a tutorial for this card. Look for a link for You Tube to pop up hopefully in the next half hour!

You can find all of these items and more on my website:

Quick Thinking of You Card

Dusti, this card is acutally one of the cards I sent to you today for the swap! Just wanted to post a quick pic of it cause it turned out SO cute!
Jessica Wilson


Ok, so this is my son's mask for his school play on June 2nd. He had to pick a creature from the ocean, and he chose a SHARK! So...maybe pulled out her trust Cricut Machine and, believe it or not, this is a Batman Mask that I turned into a shark head! I went to a local scrapbook store, Scrap That, and took advantage of their 40% off paper sale! Got some really great paper to make this project! Also, this shark does have a fin! This picture is what happens when you let a little dude take the picture on my phone! LOL!

Happy Birthday Easel Card

Another VERY fun card to make! Looks beautiful and also looks like it took a very long time to make! GUESS WHAT....IT DIDN'T!! I used:

Stampin' Up Poppy Parade Card Stock
Stampin' Up Poppy Parade Patterned Card Stock
Stampin' Up Poppy Parade Ink
Stampin' Up Basic Black Ink
Stampin' Up Basic Black Card Stock
Stampin' Up Whisper White Card Stock
Stampin' Dimensionals
Stampin' Up Snail Adhesive
Stampin' Up "Just B" Two Step Stamps (RETIRED)

I will upload the sizes for all the card stock tomorrow in the am...My little guy just woke up from a nightmare, so I must cuddle my little dude back to bed!! 

Happy Stampin'! 

Another Thank You card

I have to say, this is by FAR one of the most fun cards I have made! I felt very "free" when making this card! I used:

Stampin' Up Button, Button Clear Mount Stamps (Used EVERY ONE on a very large clear block)
Stampin' Up Bigz Top Note Die
Stampin' Up Decorative Label Punch
Stampin' Up Afterthoughts Stamp-Thanks I love being spoiled
Stampin' Up Blushing Bride card stock (for die cut)
Stampin' Up Blushing Bride card stock for card base 5 X 4 1/2
Stampin' Up Concord Crush card stock (for layer) cut at 4 1/2 X 4
Sizzix Damask folder
Stampin' Up Stampin' Pastels (for coloring in the button stamps)
Stampin' Up Blushing Bride Stamp Pad
Stampin' Up Concord Crush Stamp Pad
Stampin' Up Stampin' Dimensionals
Stampin' Up Snail Adhesive
Versa Mark Ink Pad
Clear Embossing Powder
Transparent Embossing Powder
Heat Tool
Powder tray

I made a top note from Blushing Bride from the Top Note Die on my Big Kick. While with the Big Kick, I placed my piece of Concord Crush in between the Damask folder and pressed it then I set it aside. I placed every button stamp from the Button, Button clear mount stamp set on a large clear block and just stamped the entire top note, and made sure I did not overlap them. I then took my sponge and sponged in Blushing Bride ink the edge of the entire top note. With the Stampin' Pastels, I took a few pieces of cotton balls and dabbed it in a few colors (you can be creative here, choose which ones you like). The best part of this was YOU CAN GO OUTSIDE THE LINES! YEA!! Afterward, take you Versamark Ink Pad and ink the ENTIRE top note cut out. Then, over your powder tray, take the clear embossing powder and cover the entire die. Take your heat tool and heat until the powder melts.

Taking another piece of Blushing Bride, stamp "Thanks, I love Being Spoiled" from  the Afterthoughts stamp set onto the paper. Next, take your decorative label punch and punch out your sentiment. Take your Versamark again and stamp the whole punched out shape. Place over the powder tray, and cover the punch with Transparent embossing powder. Take your heat tool until it melts.

Fold card in half and adhere the embossed piece on Concord Crush with your Snail to the card base. Then, after your top note has dried, adhere that piece with Snail in the middle to the Concord Crush piece. Take four Stampin' Dimensionals and put behind your sentiment piece that should also be cool. Place in the bottom right hand corner of your card.

All finished! All items can be purchased from my website:

Happy Stampin'!

Thanks for Bee-ing There

My good friend Kellie (who until she went to her first Stamp Class swore I was SO lame for card making and scrap booking and now she is ADDICTED to both, lol) made this awesome card tonight on the Cricut Machine with the Give a Hoot cartridge. Isn't it ADORABLE???? I LOVE it, and some very lucky person is getting this card!!!

Sympathy Card

I was sorry I had to make this card yesterday, but glad I got to give it my homemade touch! It was so very easy to make this card, and I have to say, I am LOVING Stampin Up Concord Crush! The ink, top note, and ribbon is all Concord Crush (2010 In Colors), and I just cant believe how well they all go together! The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Thanks for Caring set. I embossed a sentiment on the inside, so it gave it that bit of extra special "love" my friend Peg needed!

Graduation Card

I had SO much fun making this card! I had a little bit of everything in it! I learned a fun new technique from Andrea Walford for using my designer paper scraps, and I tried some new things out myself! I will post what each piece is from this weekend, PROMISE! But, for now, some pictures!

"Your A Star" Big Shot Top Note Label

Not sure if anyone has heard of a little company called "Scentsy", but I designed this simple top note die (Stampin Up Big Shot Top Note Die) for a friend of mine's step mother, who happens to be the BEST Scentsy Rep around! She asked for something simple that she could put on a clear baggie with inspirational notes to give to her girls. I used the Cricut "Cuttin Up" cartridge and I used a lavender and the CLOSEST I had to lime green for the colors (the colors of Scentsy) that she requested. If your interested in some of the BEST SCENTS AROUND, check out Jackie's site at:

Feel free to check out my Stampin Up site:


Get Well Soon Card

This was a SUPER quick card to make! I embossed the card stock with my Big Shot then I cut out my stamped image (Stampin Up) with my decorative label punch (Stampin Up). As soon as I can actually have some free time on the computer, I will start posting actual names of card stock and stamp sets! But, in the meantime, please check out my site to purchase your own items!!

New Baby Card

I have to admit, I was feeling PRETTY CRAFTY with my 2 hours to myself after work tonight! I am working on some cards to donate to a friends fundraiser on Saturday. I am going to have about 6 cards (blank inside) and maybe a $25.00 giftcard to my Stampin Up site. Any ideas guys????

I made this card at 5 1/2 X 4 1/4. I cut out little onesies from one of my Cricut Cartridges ( I will post the name of it later! I forgot it!). I used Stampin Up paper and the "Happy New Baby is also from one of my Stampin Up sets! If you email me, I will get you all the info you need. Or if you would just like to browse, please check out my website:

Gary (from Spongebob) Penny Spinner Card

What a fun card to make!! I made this for my son's friends birthday this weekend! The little boy LOVES Spongebob, so I thought he would like to see his buddy Gary (MEOW)! I cut Gary out on my Cricut Expression machine from the Spongebob Cartridge. I used my Stampin' Up Word Window punch to punch behind Gary so he can spin on the penny's. I have the Penny Spinner Card Tutorial on my website: . If you are interested in learning step by step how to do it, please let me know!
