My cardstock is Stampin Up, the ribbon is American Arts, the leaf is from Lizzie Anne Designs Au Naturale set, the Thanks is from their Daisy Dots set. The glitter is part of a set by Making Memories and I put it on the card with good old fashioned white glue (like the kids use at school :)

My sister is SO talented! This is another one of her cards. Sorry the photo isn't very good. She has sparkles on the pink champagne and the hearts and the punch out hearts are the Giga Scallop Heart punch and the Mega Heart punch. We have been having a LOT of fun! Sorry about the lack of cards on my blog lately...so much to do so little time :D

MY SISTER IS COMING! She lands at around 3.30pm today!!! We are SO excited! She will obviously be exhausted when she gets here after travelling for about 17 hours! I was thinking about her a lot this morning and was inspired to make her this candle. The stamp is so beautiful I didn't want to do too much to the candle that might take your focus away from it so I added some beautiful green glitter (from the Making Memories Shimmer set) and voila...elegant and to the point!
The Stamp is from Joann's isn't it gorgeous! I attached the glitter with the 1/2" Terrifically Tacky Tape.
I love it when a plan comes together ;)

I started off by cutting out all the templates that they give you but I have to admit...I'm not that good with the scissors!!! SO, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and try to come up with a beautiful house without cutting out cardstock I really like the end result!
I started by sponging Brilliance Pearlescent Lime all over the house and then stamped the sparkle from Lizzie Anne Design's Holiday Cheer set in the same ink. I then wanted to highlight the windows without having to cut anything out so I had a 'AHA' moment! Why not use my punches! So the little windows are framed by punching with the Mega Rectangle punch and then the Giga Scalloped Rectangle punch, because they were too big I cut them down a couple of scallops and re-stuck them! The door is the Giga scalloped Rectangle punch for the green cardstock and the Mega scalloped rectangle punch for the stripy paper. The arched window took a little more thought...I punched out the top part (the arch) by using the Giga Scalloped Circle and the Mega circle punche and then the bottom part is made with the same rectangle punches. The stripy & red dotty cardstock are both from DCWV Christmas Glitter stack and the green is Bazzill Bling. The roof was decorated with Doodlebugs Christmas Sequins and then sprinkled with silver glitter from the Making Memories shimmer kit.
I have wanted to make one of these for a LONG time and I am very happy that I did. I love it!

I also had a photo taken with Lisa Bearnson - the founder of Creating Keepsakes! I haven't met anyone famous before (apart from Richard Cadell - the Sooty guy (Only British people will understand who that is!)) I will insert the photo as soon as I get it. It was taken on Tricia's Camera.
I am so excited about all the new products I have bought. Can't wait to get them on my eBay site!
Check back soon!!!

(This card has SO much more depth and glitz to it than this photo shows!)
I have been busy today helping my friend Tricia ('Lizzie' of Lizzie Anne Designs) get ready for CKC Seattle this coming weekend. There is quite a lot that has to be thought about and organized and I am glad I can help out in my little ways :) I honestly don't know how she (and Meridith - 'Anne' of LAD) gets is all done! Especially when Tricia has 2 young children too...she's quite marvelous you know! A true inspiration! Her little boy likes to help and feels quite important when he is telling you all about what needs to be done and where the packages need to go, he's super cute!
Well anyway when I got home I was in the mood to stamp and Oh My! I have to say these Snowmen are CUTE!!! Of course they are Lizzie Anne Design's Simply Singles Snowmen. I used Watercolour pencils to colour them in. You may notice I even gave each snowman his own little shadow! I layered with lightweight Vellum and hand tore them to make it look like snow drifts. I also used Stickles Waterfall for the snow on the ground and Stickles Icicle to highlight the snowmen and then I used White Opal Liquid Pearls for the falling snow. LOVE IT! Oh the white cardstock is Paper Accents White Pearlized Paper.

I also want to mention that I took the photo of this card outside and it looks so bright! I have been having a hard time with the way my photos have been coming out...not giving the card I made full justice for it's beauty :) but this one turned out quite nice. I'm pleased with the difference, my Ott-lite has just been retired!
The yellow card is from an old card and envelope set I had and the red is Bazzill, the Christmas tree paper is from a DCWV stack, the gold vellum was from Paper Zone! I did add Stampendous red Geo Dots, looks like I came across those last year ;) I embossed the reindeer with gold glitter and the baubles are stamped in SU Real Red and Encore Ultimate metallic gold.
It's fun to look back and see what you used to work with. I used to really try and use up all of my scraps...it's quite challenging, really gets your mind working :D

This was a fun card to make, I haven't used this technique in AGES! I stamped my daisy from LAD High Hellos set in VersaMark and then embossed it with white emboss powder. I then rubbed chalk over the image and voila! I would like to try this again with a more solid image too.
The cardstock is Bazzill Bling Emerald City but I used the non-shiny side, what a sumptuous colour! The Large tag (Marvy Giga punch) is the old Eggplant Envy (yes I still have some, it used to be my MOST favourite colour!) and the white is SU ultrasmooth. The chalks I used are the SU ones and the ribbon is May Arts - I only bought this ribbon yesterday and I love it! I then added some Sparkly dots by Stampendous for the tag holes. The sentiment is from LAD Sketched Sentiments set. I was tempted to add more sparkles but fought the urge :D

These are my 2 very beautiful girls. They play together really well. This is a few years ago now. The youngest one, Chloe (6), is a definite Mini-Me and Lynzee my 8 year old is a Mini-Daddy. It's crazy how they are SO much like us!!! Lynzee is very laid back which mixes nicely with Chloe's non-stop fidgeting :) This page has been on the Lizzie Anne Designs website for a few months now, it was the first few sets that I owned, I now own a LOT more. Their stamps are very addictive!
