Last month the winner came from Marie's blog.  Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize winner this month?

Happy New Year's to you all, hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!  
How about all the cute new stamp sets this month!!  I choose to use Ellie Retail Therapy and created a Wiper Card.  This is such a cute technique and fits perfectly with this cute stamp.
Card opened

With the card closed

 I just love how cute this turned out.  To create the background I used Anne Griffin embossing folder, embossed the white CS.  Using a brayer and versmark ink I inked the raised embossing area and then applied Blue Silver EP.  You can find a great Tutorial for creating this look.

Ellie was stamped with black ink twice once on white CS and once on DP.  For her dress and hair ribbon, it was cut out and pieced on top of the first image.  The 1st image was colored with copic markers and glittered using a glue pen and Sparkling Snow, Waterfall and Bubblegum glitter. The image was then fussy cut and placed on card using pop dots.
Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh was attached to the front of the card.

Strips were added to the end of the card.  One was embossed using Anne Griffin's Embossing Folders.  

Using Super Adhesive Sheets  place a piece on top of white CS, remove backing and cover with Sparkling Snow glitter.  Stamp the Born to Shop sentiment and punch using a circle punch.  The edges were inked with pink distress ink.

Season's Greetings

Good morning all, I would like to share a Christmas layout with you this morning!! 

I started my background paper using the new Toyland Bear #674 stamp set that was just released. 

Using the pine stamp to create the background in the corners and along the side of the page.  They were stamped with green ink and small dots of dimensional glue was added to the berries and glittered using Fire Engine Red glitter.

The ornament was punch from sticker paper and glittered using the Lacey Glitter Background technique.  You can find a tutorial HERE on how to create this look.

To create the strips of paper I used the snowflake stamp from Snow One Like Me and the Crystal Medallion.  They were stamped with versamark and embossed using White EP.
To create the strips I used 1/8" and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape with Elegant Emerald and Silver Dreams glitter.

The Season's Greetings was die cut using Die-Versions Season's Greeting Script die.  I used brushable glue and Elegant Emerald glitter to add sparkle.

You can find complete details on this layout HERE on my SNS gallery!
Have a great day see you soon!

Celebrating #38th!!

Good afternoon all, hope your day is going well!!  Today is my 38th wedding anniversary!!!  I can't believe it has been that long, guess time really does fly when you are having fun.  We have been blessed with so much though out the years health, children and grandchildren!  I created a card for my husband that I would like to share with you today.

I used the largest heart die from Spellbinders and die cut 2 hearts.  Using the a smaller heart die I cut one heart.  To create the dress bottom emboss one heart and make score lines and fold.  Using a glue pen I added some sparkle to the dress with Sparkling Snow glitter.  Score and fold  the 2nd heart.  Place the embossed folded heart inside the remaining heart and you have your skirt for your wedding dress.  Fold the smaller heart to create the top, I added red rhinestones along the top.  I used red as that was our colors for our "special" day.  A smaller bow was added to the middle.  

The card base was embossed using Anna Griffin's folders.

Cut a strip of black CS the length of the card base to create the tux.  All you need to do is make a cut line down the middle, make score lines and fold both sides down. Add a small piece of white CS behind the cut to create the shirt.  Cut a small bow tie from red glitter paper.  Add rhinestones for the buttons.

This really turned out so cute, my husband really loved it!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful evening and remember.....Keep Stamping!!!
