One Scoop Or Two?

Here are a couple of cards I recently made.  The pink one is made from current Stampin' Up! products and colors.  I made it for a swap.  The purple one I made for a class and it uses some colors that are retiring.  The stamp set is called Sweet Scoops and I love it!  Speaking of classes, I am having a class on Monday, June 28.  If you are interested in coming, let me know.

Have a great day!

Two In A Row

Can you believe I am posting 2 days in a row?  Me either!  It's going to be quick because I have a really busy day ahead of me.  The first photo is a canvas I made for one of the teachers for her birthday.  I am thinking of adding a large black and white striped bow to act as a hanger, but I am not sure.  I am giving it to her today so I guess I'd better decide quickly!

The second photo is the birthday card I made for my nephew.  I kind of like how it turned out. 

Have an awesome day! (I told you it was going to be quick).

Hello Again!

Well, I have had some classes and done some crafting since the last time I shared.  My computer that has all my photos has been down, and still is.  I was able to convince my hubby that I should go back to what I know how to use!  Here are a few cards from my latest class I had over the weekend.  I have some classes coming up in May, if you are interested let me know.

The first card features a set called Sweet Scoops.  It will be available in the new Summer Mini that begins May 1.  There are some cute sets in the new mini.  You can view them at my Stampin' Up! website.   The sweet scoops card is a replica of one that Diana Gibbs made.  She is my upline and my go to if I need some inspiration.  The only thing I changed was the colors (slightly).
The butterfly card was cased from a gal named Ilina Crouse.  I changed just a few things as well.  There was no stamping.  The butterflies are from the emblosslits die.  It is so cool.  It cuts and embosses all in one shot!  All of those butterflies were from just one die.  I used double sided designer paper and flipped some over.
This vintage card was my own creation.  I wasn't sure at first because it is not my usual style, but I love the elegance of this one.  It is hard to see in the photo but there is some glitter on the center of the flowers.
This guitar card uses a color combo I have never used before, but I like it!  The card was inspired by Renee.  I am going to have to get a link to her blog because she has some fantastic work!

Well, I have missed being able to share my creations with you all!  I will have some more for you soon.

Have a fantastic day!

A Few More Cards

I tried to add about 10 cards for your viewing pleasure the other day, however, things didn't work the way I wanted.  So now, I am trickling them in.  I have a really full day, so without further ado...

Here are two more cards from a recent class I had.  Does it make you want to sign up for my next class? I have one on February 20.  I still have just a couple spots open if you are interested.  If you are busy, I still have some spots for my March 12 class.  

The first card is my own creation.  The second card I borrowed the design and changed just a few things to make it my own.  Molly was the creator behind the original.  Her blog is http://mollyslazydogblog.blogspot.com/.  In honor of the upcoming Hallmark holiday holiday that fills the air with love and gives me ample opportunity to create gifts and cards, I am showing you two pink cards.   

Have a romantic, love filled weekend! (I didn't even use a sarcastic tone)

Mommy and Me Valentine's Class

Good Morning!  The Mommy and Me Valentine's Class was a huge success.  I had fun and I am pretty sure everyone else did too!  Here are the projects we made.  I think I may have even gotten a custom order for one of them for wedding favors!  How fun!

As always, if you have questions let me know.  I also wanted to tell you, I am getting ready to start another round of stampers club.  I am looking to fill some spots.  I have two options.  Let me know if you are interested and I will explain how they work.  It is a great opportunity to learn new techniques and get a few supplies in an affordable manner.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Who's Been Missing?

Get it?  "Who's" been missing, or should I say "hoo's" been missing?  OK, never mind!

Here are two cards from my recent class.  The first one uses a ton of punches!  I took the design from the recent regional event I attended.  I just changed the stamp set and some of the colors.  I am very happy with its outcome.  The stamps are For All You Do and Well Scripted (occasions mini).  

The second card uses Fox and Friends stamp set.  I used the new clear mount stamps.    It also uses the scallop trim border that you can earn for free during sale-a-bration.  If you would like to know how let me know!  The leaves are cut out with the little leaves die and big shot.  I just cut off one branch and glued it under the white layer.  My gel pen is one of my favorite embellishments.  Look how much detail just a few highlights add.

I have added a class to my calendar for March.  It is a 5-5-10 all occasions class.  It is on March 12.  You can choose from a 9am class or 6pm.  Let me know which one you would like to attend.  Thanks!

Have a fabulous week!  Mine is full of fun craftiness!

Mambo And Her Rich Twin

I love making the same card in different colors.  They look very different.  Obviously I added brads to the pink one, otherwise they are twins.  The pink is using melon mambo and the purple is rich razzleberry, thus the title is born!  The rich razzleberry looks brown in the photo, but I assure you it is an amazing purple shade!  These cards were very quick to put together, but took forever to cut!  This was one of the cards we made at my last class.  Hopefully, it will help entice you to sign up for my next class coming up.

I hope you have a great weekend!  Mine will be wonderful and busy!

The Love Workshop

I had a workshop this week.  We made 3 fun projects.  The hostess made tons of yummy food!  Food and crafting....I am certain life doesn't get much better!  Bandit stole our hearts in the first project.  If you look closely you can see the white gel pen we used on his heart and tail.
The next project was a little nugget purse.  Both the Bandit tag and the purse used the Big Shot two tags die.  The second photo shows the loot!  My boys were arguing over who gets to eat the chocolate out of this one.  Never mind that there are 120 more undecorated ones in a bag.  I guess that proves my theory that goodies really do taste better when they are decorated first!

Side view.

This card makes me very happy.  It is fairly simple, but still eye catching.  Unfortunately, you can't see the sparkle in the photo.  The designer paper is from the new mini and has glitter already on some of the flowers.  Then we added more shimmer by spraying the images with shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol.  The edges of the love you much stamp were sponged with pretty in pink.

As always, if you have specific questions just ask.

On a side note, I still have some openings for my upcoming all occasions card class on January 29.  Let me know if you are interested.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Blogger Of The Year...

OK, so maybe not this year, but I can set my sites high for next year, right?  I kind of jumped ship the second half of 2009, but I am back!

I still have not mastered the new photo software change.  In my opinion, it not very user friendly.  I have to find the photo and put it on my desktop just to get it to my blog.  I am sure there is an easier way, but I don't know what it is.  My hubby is going to have to give me a tutorial or let me go back to my old ways!  I guess if I used it a little more often and gave you all some eye candy, I would know how to use it by now.  

Moving forward...I made this card in the midst of the craziness of the holidays.  It is using the Dasher stamp and basic brown ink.  I used white craft ink to ink the edges of the kraft paper.  I used a glue pen to make random dots on the background and on the edges of the vellum and then sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter.  

If you didn't get a Christmas card from me this year it is not because you didn't make the "list" it is because I didn't make the list!  I could bore you with lots of excuses, but I won't!

Now for exciting stuff!  Stampin' Up!  is having my favorite promotion of the year.  It is called sale-a-bration.  It is the chance for you to earn free stamps.  Who doesn't love free stuff?  For every $50 you spend you get to choose a free set, paper, or punch from the sale-a-bration catalog.  To see the fabulous catalog you can visit my website:  www.sherismith.stampinup.net or you may simply ask me for a catalog.  If you hostess a workshop and the total is at least $300 you also earn a free set.  If you would like to join my team as a demonstrator you earn another free set.  The starter kits are 15% off as well.  This is the really abbreviated version, so if you have any questions please let me know!

Have a great day!

Flying By To Say A Quick Hi...

Saturday was a workshop.  This is one of the projects we created.  It was a lot fun!  There were some new stampers and some young stampers.  I can NOT get enough of this ornament punch.  I feel obligated to let you know that it is only available until January 5.  So please let me know if you "need" one.  I say need because how could you not want one? 

The stamp set is Delightful Decorations which is also only available until January 5.  My to-do list is growing much quicker than it is shrinking.  The good news is that in about a week everything that isn't done won't matter any more ;)  I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful holiday season and keeping your stress levels to a minimum!

Have a grand day and let me know if you have any questions about my card or otherwise!
