April Showers

April Showers have arrived!!
Hope You all are doing Well. I'm sitting on my bed thinking about going back to sleep!!
The rain makes the day so gloomy, you don't wanna come out of bed... not for housework or anything for that matter!
In Puerto Rico we have this saying When its Rainy
"Today is a day for the 3 S' Soup, Sheets and S..."
Lets Just replace that word with Stamping!! lol
Well Yesterday I Looked at this Clear stamp I have and was trying to find a way to get the best image, SO i began Filing it with my Nail File (a Tip I saw off of Youtube)
I stamped the image in a White piece of card stock and Loved the way the image Came out!
(Nice and Crisp)
I felt so Bad just putting that Stamped image in my Scrap Box So I got to work On making it a Card and this is What I came Up with!

I took the white Piece of Card stock* and attempted to "Sponge"...I did this with a Cosmetic Wedge as I don't have any sponges on hand!!
I placed the Image on Pink "Designer" Paper*
Colored in the Flowers With my Stampin Write Markers
I thought that the Card was a bit Plain So I Freehandedly cut a Hill Pattern in the Front of the card and attached a 1" Piece of the Designer Paper on the Back to Even the Card out!
I added a Ribbon and a bow and three Cardboard dots That I found Laying around
I placed My Stamped Image to the Right Corner and I was done!
Then I saw I had Space for a "Sentiment" and Remembered I'd purchased a Studio G Clear Stamp set From Lalatty (She Has some stuff on sale on Ebay!) It was a Cute and Simple "Happy Spring"
So I stamped It in Old Olive and Cornered it as well...
You Cannot See it on here but I place a White Piece of Card Stock in the Inside flap to Make the Designer paper Stronger and Hide my Ribbon!
I Rounded my Corners and

I must Say This Card Took Me about 9 Hours to make. As I was Just winging It, I would walk away come back do one thing then run off to play with my Kids and think about new Ideas and Come back and do something else!!

Hope You Enjoyed my Card and Blaberring "Tutorial" lol
Well TaTa For Now...

Items Marked * Im unsure who are made by, and where I got it from!

April 3, 2011

Hope you all are doing Awesome!!
Better Than me I hope
I'm Car-less but thankfully I'm Ok and surrounded by my Family
Its Not easy finding a new car on a Budget

Well Yesterday I worked on a Monochromatic Card,
I was trying to see how that would work, and it was awesome.
 I had made a Purple One for the Catch a Bug Blog Challenge (Which ended)
and Decided to try another one just to see what I came Up with!!

I started by Stamping "I will always Cherish You" all over my orange-yellow Card stock
I layered a Orange and yellow Polka dot Pattern piece and Finished it off with a Bow, and Flower embellishment I found in my Scrapbook Box.
I Printed the Digi Stamp from Pink Cat Studio
(They Have such CUTE Digi Stamps)
I colored the image with my Stampin' Up Stampin Write Markers
And cut it out!
Glued it With Dimensional Drew the Antennas

I wanted to Stamp a darker Sentiment to the right of the Butterfly, Maybe a "Thinking Of You" or "Missing You" Sentiment, But I don't have any of those....YET, lol

Also My 5 Year Old Daughter is sick, So my Husband decided to make her a card on his own
and here's what he came up with:

She Loved it so Much!!
Well Off to Prepare the Kids Lunch!

Hey All,
Hope You are Having a Wonderful Evening
The Weather Here in PA is Crazy
They Announced more than 7 Inches of Snow and it never showed!!
(I guess that's actually a good thing!)

Well Hubby's working the kids are watching TV and I had time for a lil quick stamping!!

I made this Card with my New Punch Bunch From Stampin' Up Sale a Bration Sale which Sadly ended!!
(I found Stampin' Up a little bit too late, Oh Well there's always next year for this sale!)

I free Handed the the "Hills" on the Pattern Paper I purchased today at BigLots!
Its called DayDream Ensemble by GCD Studios
(Dont Know who they Are, all I know its adorable Paper and only $5 Bucks)

I stamped My Owl On White card stock and because I don't have the Punch to Match, I cut it Out.
I Stamped my Flowers and Colored them In and made an extra outline,
Stamped My "True Friend" on yellow card stock and placed it on a Flower Stem.

Put My Pieces Together and

Hope You Like My Card
(I think Now I'm starting to let go a lil bit and Not over think the card, *I didn't get a Mental Block* I just went with it!!)
Well Thats All For tonight!
