I have been playing with my square fabriano cards this morning. I chose vintage violet cardstock. I put my violet cardstock through my paper sculpting sizzix die. Next I put the flower shapes through my swirl cuttlebug folder. I sponged more vintage violet ink to define the swirls. I also sponged around the edges of the fabriano card lightly and around where I put my flowers. The ribbon is from Michaels and Stampin'Up! stitched ribbon in vintage violet. I found some polka dot notecards at Michaels that I put through my paper sculpting sizzix die just for the centers of the flowers. I used sincere salutations from Stampin'Up! to emboss get well soon in black ep. I have an "All sorts of things" stitching guide that I purchased from lastingimpressions.com. I used that to do my paper piercing in a couple of places on the fabriano card. I wanted to keep it simple, but stunning. I hope I accomplished my goal! Let me know what you think!

This is just a simple valentine. I used a 3x6" piece of white cardstock. I put it through my embossing folder and did dtp with real red on the hearts. I punched a real red scallop square with my mega punch. I used the little embossing folder to give it some depth. I then used my stardust gelly pen to fancy up the edges. I used two circle punches the bigger one in black cs and the smaller in whisper white. I stamped my "bug" with basic black. I used prismacolors and gamsol on the bug. I used my stardust pen on the spots and antanae. Oh and I gave my bug little cheeks. I think I will give it to my granddaughter with her socks I got her. TFL!
I need to know if any of you know how to remove comments from your blog. It seems I have been spammed. Grrr.. I went into moderate comments but found nothing. I have been helping my daughter move and get settled this past week. I don't babysit the granddaughter tomorrow. I will stamp and get something new on here then. I was doing so good at getting something on here every day or two. Sigh. I have also realized why I don't want to move anymore. Have a great day and check back tomorrow. I will try and stamp something wonderful!
Update! I figured it out all by myself. I have also made it so I have to approve the posts. Sorry if it causes more work. I can't believe people! Good grief!

Penelope is another sweet little girl who has no hope left. They are grasping at straws just trying to save their little girl. http://www3.caringbridge.org/ny/penelope/index.htm
Also, please say a prayer for Mia's family. They are devastated! http://www.caringbridge.org/cb/inputSiteName.do?method=search&siteName=princessmia
Jake was the first child that I found and he still melts my heart when I see his sweet smile. The day he passed, I just sat here in tears. His family is doing all they can to help others remember him. http://www.caringbridge.org/la/jakeowen/ Jake, I know you are happy in Heaven!
Maybe for now just passing on these few names will help people see that there is a need out there for a cure for cancer. There is tons more research done in adult cancer than for children's. I don't understand this! Why would there not be more for children's cancer research. It is my hope that people will wake up and do what they can to help fund cancer research for children. St. Judes is a perfect place to start! http://www.stjude.org/
Have a great weekend everyone and hug your children just a little tighter and a little longer. Most importantly Believe!

I am thrilled with my new cuttlebug and actually got to use it for some creations today. I don't know what I ever did without it. It is so fun to be able to use toys that are not Stampin'Up!. I love Stampin'Up! don't get me wrong, but in the last 10 years that is all I have used. I couldn't make something with a contraband, because what if someone wanted to buy something. I haven't had tons of sales. It is kinda funny too, cause I am getting my first recruit! A friend moved to another state and she and her daughter have finally figured out that stamping is for them. They don't have a lot of options store wise where they live. She wants to be a demo so she can acquire a pile of stuff to play with! Ha ha!
So with that said my pic of the day is a journal I made for my son's Girlfriend. She loved it. He picked out the paper and I just started cutting it up and modpodging it to the composition notebook. To decorate it, I used my cuttlebug. I used red tag sale alphabet to cut out a cracker box left over from the holidays. Each letter was cut out 3 times and then glued together with the modpodge. I then cut out the letters with the paper to match the journal. I glued that as well with modpodge. I sanded it to make it look aged. I used the asterisks die to cut the flowers. I added bling to each flower with a little crystal. She loves her journal! Enjoy! I will post tomorrow some of the other fun things I made! It makes me wanna stamp again today!

A few people at SCS have been asking if the BISK will work well with the cuttlebug. These images are made with the BISK. The first one in pink is using a fiskars texture plate. The second and fourth ones are using the BISK texture plates. The green one is using a brass template from Stampin'Up! I did find that it gives the best impression if I lightly spritz my cardstock with water first.
The sandwich order that I put on the fiskars texture plate is as follows:
Plate A, Fiskars texture plate, spritzed cs, black rubber bisk pad, c plate
The sandwich order for the brass stencil is as follows:
Plate A, plateB, stencil, spritzed cs, black rubber bisk pad, black bisk plate
I hope that helps some of you! Have a great night!
