I started cleaning out one of the boxes and came across this cupcake from the Hey Cupcake set that Melissa had colored and coated with Glossy Accent. I decided that it was too pretty to toss and I had to use it on a card.
I used one of the new lables from Spellbinders, Labels Fifteen, and embossed the cardstock using two different sizes. I stamped the inside with one of the Card Label stamps and Eat Cake. I really love how it came out.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that you are up to non Christmasy cards for the months to come! Like this fishy card!
I used the Fishing for Details set, it’s sooo much FUN!!! I stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copics. The fish is cut out and adhered with pop dots for some dimension. Easy peasy! All the squares are cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities and then some bling in the corners. Done.
Have a lovely last week of 2010, see you next year!

I stamped the Mini Jar on acetate with black Stazon ink. I stamped the lid on designer paper. I attached my lid to my jar and then to the pink panel. I added some paper embroidery to further give it a vintage feel.
The fruit from the Fruit Medley set are stamped on acetate. I colored the reverse side with Copic Markers and then ran them through the Xyron sticker machine. I applied green, orange and red glitters to them and attached them with glue dots.
You will have to check out the Fruit Medley set...it has 15 images...and some cute sentiments!

Oh the Holiday adventures. First we have to get the cards out and gifts bought…or made…and then there’s the decorating. The holidays seem so busy, there always seems to be more activities and less time every year.
Every year I tell myself I’m going to get all my cards done before it’s too late to send them. I’ll let you know how that works out for me next year…in the meantime…I did manage to get a few cards finished this year.
This card is one of my favorites. It’s simple to put together and I was able to make several in just a few short hours. That’s my kind of card. I used the star ornament from the Ornamental Holiday set and the sentiment is Elegant Merry Christmas. A little Jingle bell finished this card off in no time.
Our design team has worked very hard this year to bring you wonderful and fun art. Don’t forget to give them a little love now and then. We would really love to hear your comments. If there is anything you would like to see on the blog, please send us a note and we’ll make sure to give it a try.

I'm sharing a very quick but cute little card/tag that I made to attach to some gifts.
I used Spellbinders Label 8 and a sentiment from the Warm Wishes set.
I corner punched the corners of the card, distressed the edges with brown ink, stamped my image and added a little bling. I pounded out 4 of these little guys in no time at all and will be likely making more tonight.... I love mini cards and tags I think they really make a present that little extra special.
Thanks for stopping by

This is my last Holiday card for this year. And it was a fun one to make.
I made my own patterned paper by stamping the background with It’s a blizzard outside, inked it up with Distress ink, Broken China and then added some Glimmer mist. It has a lovely shimmer. I adhered it on white cardstock and stitched. Added a ribbon and button and then adhered it all to a tall card base using pop dots. I love pop dots! :):):)
I wish you all a lovely week!

Using a paper bag I created a couple of pockets perfect for the gift card and a little something extra. The gift card will go on the inside with the tag.
On the front of the card I used Spellbinders Curved Rectange and Classic Diamonds. I inked up one of the embossing folders from the Cuttlebug Heritage set and embossed my Curved Rectangle. I stamped the Small Paisley Dragonfly on the diamond and added Glossy Accent to the wings. I added a Pearl Jelly dot to make it pop. On the inside I stamped "Let your imagination take flight" on a tall scallop rectangle also from Spellbinders. I used two diamonds and stamped the Small Trailing Butterfly on the smaller diamond. For the background I inked up the paisley embossing folder and embossed. I really love this technique because I think it gives it a fun letter pressed look to the background. For the tag I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the Birthdays and Balloons set. I have another pocket to fill...I'm thinking a little candy treat will go nicely.
This card is for a girl, but there are so many saying and stamps that can easily change this card for a boy. One of my favorite little boys stamps is the Biplane. Check it out if you have time.
Wow...there has been some great posts this week. I'm so happy to see the pugs. Aren't they great? Make sure you leave a comment and tell us what you think. You can also visit us on Facebook.
There are lots of Pug Lovers out there so if you know one this would make a great gift ... Here is a cute idea using a paper bag ... I put it our there earlier this week to the design team to try and use a paper bag on their project . Some had already made cards for this post this week and others have more stuff coming ... but this is what I came up with . The paper bag wallet was inspiration off one of the blogs or Splitcoast Stampers ... I can not remember ... but it was cute .

Hi folks! I sthart the new week with a CAS card, using the Warm Wishes set.
I used a textured white cardstock and a green mat. Very easy, but with some pop dots to give it all dimension it turned out pretty nice. I love this branch stamp. So versatile, so classy!
I’m about to start sending my over seas cards out. Are you???

The background is also stamped tone on tone. I added a bit of faux stitching and some photo corners to finish off the card. A fun way to color without using pencils or pens!
I used the stamp aligner to stamp Shalom as a border along the bottom of my card with Stazon ink on the metallic paper. Most of the images on this card come from the Tree of Life set. One of the stars comes from the Celebrating the Festival of Lights set.

I am sure that you all want to see ................but .......................I am not going to show it until next week. Its going to be great for some of those last minute dog lovers cards.
Supplies Needed :
White Colorbox pigment ink
Clear button or White
R59 Cardinal Red Copic
Clear ultra fine glitter
H978 Background Basics 2
White Gel Pen
This card was quick and easy .... I stamped Background Basics with the white pigment ink about 1.5 inches from the bottom of the card . Put some faux stitching on the top and the bottom of the stamped image to frame it in. Embellished with some pearls.
For the snowflake I colored the button in with my Copic marker and put that to the side to dry. The I took out Scraphappy Glue and drew the design on the snowflake ... sprinkled with clear glitter and put that aside to dry . The best part about Scraphappy glue is that it has a very fine tip and it makes it possible to do small piece work.
I hope that you all have a really great week-end and make sure that you check back .... If you like this card show me some LOVE post a comment ... tell your friends about us , friend us on Facebook ... Tell us what you want to see and learn.
