Baby shower bella card!

This card was made for a friend whose baby shower I went to yesterday I just didn't get a chance to post it when I made it on Friday! I used my new mamabella stamp that I just got this past week in the mail! I love how soft this is and how it turned out! I used my giga square punch and just put 2 together to make a rectangle! you really cant tell unless you look real close that its 2 punches. Then I used the "happy new baby" stamp from SU's "tiny talk"!! That set is retiring but I will be keeping it really just for that stamp!! I added some dots around the sentiment with my silver gel pen and thats about it! Very simple but very very cute!!

Shoppin bella!

I made this card for a girlfriend at work who's "dirty 30" birthday is tomorrow!! She loves shoes so this Bella is perfect for her!! I figured i would make her a sweet card since I am going to totally decorate her station with black and white ballons and streamers!! I used the sentiment from SU's "first in fashion" Set. I used my new GIGA circle punch and then ran them thru my CB with the happy b-day embossing folder and kinda just cropped them to fit the card. then some super cool polka dotted ribbion I picked up from the big M!! Hope ya'll like!! I know she will!!

Ducky baby!!

I really liked this little guy the min I saw him! I had to buy a whole set of A*muse animal stamps to get him but it was worth it!! This is actually the 1st card I made using both of my scalloped square punches!! Not to much to say about the car its pretty simple but I like it! It is 3x3 so I will be adding it to a coworkers b-day gift this week!! Hope you like!!

Just Be-claws!

I saw these stamps and just had to have them!! They Are the crabby dancer stamps from Gina K designs Let me tell you what she is just great!! She also has a great blog titled A Day In the Life What I like about her stamps is that you can get them mounted or unmounted!! So the 1st card I used the crabby dancer stamp and "just be-claws" I used my cuttlebug Mosaic embossing folder and some super cool stitched ribbon!! I cannot wait to see what colors SU will come out with in the stitched ribbon!! Demos got a sneak peek of one color so I am hoping there is more I just love it!!

And My 2nd card I used the seafood surprise stamp and the same just be-claws sentiment, I do not have the scalloped rectangle punch yet so I just took 2 mega squares and mounted them together with the black card stock you have to really look for where they are put together at but if you use a lighter color CS just tie a bow around it and it will hide it! I did not think of this idea I saw it some where in the blogging world but for the life of me I cannot find it!! (story of my life).

Party bella!

This was just a quick bella card I made last night I used my happy b-day CB embossing folder and cakeabella. I used real red and taken with teal! i just love these colors together!! I got the idea for the card and for the white polka dots on her apron from some one here in the blogging world but I have searched for 30 mins and cannot find the if you have a card like this with a tab punch and polka dots please let me know so i can give you credit...I promise I am not trying to stamp lift with out giving credit! The party girl stamp is a stamp from the M's dollar spot. You can't really tell from the pic but i colored the cake silver with a gel pen so it kinda sparkles!! Hope ya'll like!!
Edited: I found the blog that I got the idea from so i wanted to give proper credit! It was Kendra from Inking it Up! Ya'll go on over and check her out! She rocks!!
I am adding her to my blog roll now!

SCS bloggers RAK

Yesterday I got this SUPA fly RAK from Tammy at Stamp with Tammy I have checked out her blog and she is super talented!! Ya'll go check it out now!! If you read my last post you know that I have been a little stressed lately so this card could not have come at a better time! Thank you so much Tammy!! She used the double line doodles stamp that will be in the next SU catty and we all got if we went to a regional seminar! I will for sure be casing this one! i love how she attached the smaller flower with a matching brad!! Thank you so much Tammy for making my week!!

Scrapbooking my 1st Love!

I have not scrapbooked in FOREVA! As a matter of fact I think this is my 1st scrapbook post on my blog! So this felt so good to do. Last night I was suppose to attend a stampin night at the local SB store with a group of ladies but it had changed and I did not get the message, the owner and I are buds so I talked with her and shopped a little well she was putting out some new papers and stuff and I usually only use SU papers & designer papers but Bev knows how I love paisley stuff so she showed me this paper and i was in LOVE!!! I just had to get it! It is made by wild asparagus and is double sided with a solid color on the other side. All the other paper is SU, it went so well with the ruby red and sage shadow by SU. That's usually why I do not by non SU paper cause I am OCD about matching colors But i think it turned out nicely! The "Princess" is a rub on by Karen Foster I think...not sure and I already threw the package away and took out the trash. so sorry if it is not. If you really wanna know I can go dig through the trash for ya. I have also never used a rub on in my scrapbooking so now i am hooked on those I think! I "hung" her name from a SU clear button backed with ruby red to make it stand out. The letter stamps are from CTMH. I am so behind on my scrapbooking right now (who isn't) but this felt so good to do! This is already Placed in Haleys scrapbook! This was one of her 1 year pictures by the way!

Mi vida Loca...

I think that's how you spell Spanish is a little rusty lately, any ways my life has been super duper crazy lately. Some of you know some of you do not, but Jeffrey (my hubby) is getting a promotion and being transferred to Tallahassee, FL. So we have been in the process of selling our house here in Brunswick GA and buying a house there in FL. It has been stressful but at the beginning I told the Lord that it was all in his hands. I have had faith even though I have been stressed and everything has fallen into place nicely. We just accepted an offer on our house here last night so it is under contract now and we have a house in FL as well. We close on our house in FL on the 12th of July and our house here on the 16th. So that is the reason I have been not posting for a while. I have been stampin to keep my ounce of sanity but not really posting any thing. I wanted to let my peeps know to not give up on me!! i will be back into the swing of things soon!! I have gotten a few emails from feedbiz telling me that some people have canceled their subscriptions and that's probably why but please be patient with me. I promise to get better soon!! Thank you all! Smooches!

Emmy bella!

I made this cute little girly for a small swap that I am in! I really like her and I just cased a layout from a pregobella card I did a few weeks back. I love the bright colors and how cheerful they look. After i took this pic I decided to add a little bling and I put stickles on the shopping bag and purse. I did not add a sentiment cause this card could go a number of ways so i will let the lucky people who receive it in the swap do that part!! hope you likey!! On another note I finally found a giga square punch to go with my mega one I got last weekend so I am off to play with that now!! Hopefully I'll have some more stuff to post later! It s a really rainy day here in GA but its okay we have been praying for it since the wildfires started about a month ago! Rainy days are perfect to stamp!!
