Customer Thanks!

As I have said before ... I always love making thank you card for my customers ... what could be better than inspiring them to cut and mount their stamps than giving them a handmade card.

Since most of my customers qualified for the 3 FREE GWPs/PWPs I decided to use the Thank You Oval for this card stamped with Reflection Blue ink.

I used a Nestability to cut it and then sponged it with more Reflection Blue and also the edges of the card. I pop-dotted the nestability and stamped the swirls from Pretty Posies.

Happy Happy

These flowers are from the set Pretty Posies and they make me happy happy. I just got them and had not used them yet. So I decided to ink them up for a co-worker's birthday card.

I colored them with my copics and added a little lacy edge. The sentiment is from a retired TAC set called Little Tidbits.

Human Treats and Pet Treats

My friend Kim and I hosted a booth as part of Friends of Noah's - Arftic Art for Animals. Kim made some wonderful pendants and jewelery with her fused glass, mixed media, and resin pieces.
I helped her with the booth and made just a few "treats" for sale - both human and for dogs.

Human Treats

These are based off of my last post. I made conversation heart ones and gumball ones. I used a multitude of TAC dog and cat stamps. Some are old GWPs. Some are from the retired set Dog's Life. Some are from the current sets Furry Friends and Good Dog.

This was one using a retired GWP and Tag Tidbits. All were colored with copics and used the scalloped circle punch.

This one used Good Dog and Tag Tidbits.

Dog Treats

I made these cuties out of the pretzel rod bags. I used scalloped rectangles as the toppers and again used a lot of the same sets as above.

Retired GWP and sentiment from retired Dog's Life.

These images are all from the retired Dog's Life set.

The sentiment here is from Ruffles (I love this saying) and the paw prints are from Dog's Life.

I sold quite a few and had a lady interested in me making a bunch for them to sell/give away at their vet clinic ... what a fabulous idea!!!

One Layer Wonder

One Layer Card

TAC recently set up a challenge to use one layer of cardstock on a card. Wow! I never realized how much of a challenge that this would be for me ... I always almost use 2 or more!

I used Fabulous Frames on this as well as the owl from You Whoo. I then added the sentiment from Good Things.

I drew a rectangle frame and sponged the edges and added the bow to add a little "something" to the card.

Blog Hop - Be My Valentine

Paper Wings is a great community site devoted to The Angel Company. Today they are sponsoring a blog hop for Valentine's Day!

Heart Cookie Cutter

You may remember that I had created a great Christmas ornament using a large cookie cutter and adding a scene to it. (See the post HERE).

Well for this Blog Hop I kind of wanted to do the same thing but obviously with hearts. Here is a large cookie cutter (about 5" tall) and I created a scene in it.

I used the hearts from Hedgehog Happiness along with the headghog pulling his wagon.

I have 4 layers total in this project ... it kind of reminds me of doing diaramas back in grade school!

The sentiment is from From the Heart.

I colored everything with my copics and I tied a big red ribbon around the side and made a big bow at the top.

Here is a side view.

From the Heart Blog Hop

Lots of Heart

Today TAC is sponsoring a Blog Hop called From the Heart. I just love mixing stamp sets and realize how well they go together. For this one I took the hearts from Hedgehog Happiness and stamped them in a row and colored them with my copics. I then pop-dotted them to add a 3D effect. The girl and sentiment are from the set called From the Heart. I colored her with my copics as well.

I used brown and pink for my cardstock (love love love these colors together) and added a ribbon along the bottom.

Sorry that I don't have my normal links to the stamp sets and supplies ....seems as if the Angel E-Commerce site and Angelnet are down today ... I'll update once they are back on-line.

Please be sure to check out these other wonderful creations to get ideas for your upcoming valentine's projects:

2010 Year in Review

I saw this on another blog and decided that although it is already a couple of days into 2011 ... I'd still like to do it.

As we close out 2010, I look back on my projects and accomplishments for 2010 and I have chosen my top 10 (well I choose 11) blog posts from last year.

Cover Girl

This post was from January 20th and it was a card that was published on the cover of Scrap & Stamp Arts. It was a shaker card with red hots for Valentine's day. You can see the post HERE.

TAC Contest Winner

In February I found out that I was a contest Winner at TAC ... I had tried a few times but had never won. I was soooo excited. You can see the post HERE.

Mice Day

This was a cool card that I did for Administrative Professional's Day! You can see the post HERE.

Sympathy and Sadness

This was one of the cards that I made for my boss Tracy's funeral from everyone at work. Such a sad time ... I still have a hard time believing that he is gone. You can see the post HERE.

Joy Ride

This was a display board that I made for the TAC Seminar as part of a contest. It was chosen as the best board by the TAC staff. I won a $100 gift certificate and was super excited! You can see the post HERE.

Gift Card Holders

I made a bunch of these as my special trade at TAC seminar. They were so fun and easy to make and they were a big hit at seminar. You can see the post HERE.

What's Up Hedgehog???!!!!

Who can forget this post ... I think I've had the most comments ever on this one! All because of Barb Foster and her dare!! For a good laugh and smile you can see the post HERE.

Blossoms & Blessings

I love this set and this card was later turned into my blog header (thanks Kim)! I just love this!You can see the post HERE.

Holiday Boy

This was another submission that I made that was published on Scrap & Stamp Arts ... I love it because it looks like my little red head here in my house. You can see the post HERE.

Winter Scene Step Card

This was my first ever attempt at a step card and I loved it! Plus I love this stamp set called Cuddly Christmas! You can see the post HERE. (with instructions)

Winter Scene Ornament

So I just said how much I love that one set right ... so I made my friend Kim an ornament with that set. The main part of the ornament is a metal cookie cutter! It had multiple layers in it. You can see the post HERE.

So that's it ... that wraps up my 2010!!! It was a great year and I hope 2011 proves to be just as good if not better ....

Let It Snow

Winter Scene

It's amazing how fast the snow has melted around here ... I thought for sure it would be here for weeks if not months ... but the 50 degree weather this past weekend and the rain helped it along. So I guess I will just have to make my own winter scenes.

I used the cute penguin from Cuddly Christmas and colored him with my copics. I sponged the background and stamped snowflakes from a retired set called Bunches of Flakes. The sentiment is from Jingle Jolly. I tore white card stock and lightly sponged it with charcoal ink to create the snow drifts.

Thinking of You


I recently got this Damask Backgrounder set and wanted to use it right away. I stamped it with versamark ink and then used clear embossing powder on it. I then used the Damask GWP and stamped it on white (the color is much more of a match in real life) and paired it with a sentiment from Thinking of You.

I added some ribbon, matted everything on black, and pop-dotted the sentiment.

Happy New Year!

Love Tree

I recently got this new tree in the set called Tree Swing Fun and had to ink it up. I colored it with copics and then added hearts as leaves. I sponged a little bit of blue in the background for sky.

I added the sentiment from I Heart You (now retired) and then added the ribbon with the bow.

I love how this turned out!

Here's hoping that you have Lotsa' Love in 2011!
