Gina K. Video showing the new Grands

Thought I would share this video I found from Gina K. Designs’ Stamp TV, showing the new Grand Nestabilities and the Grand Caliber.

Just for YOU!



Hello!   Yep, it’s ANOTHER Stampavie image by Gillian Roberts!   This little guy is Penguin and Tree.    My card design is for the Stampavie Sketch Challenge.    Here’s the fun Sketch we were to follow …  I flipped it for my card. 



And, my VERY pink card!


This really was a fun sketch to work with!   Thanks Jay Jay!   

The DP is from the Basic Grey eskimo kisses 6×6 paper pad.  Mr. Penguin is colored with Copics and I added some Polar White Flower Soft to his hat and the snow on the ground.   I also added some Diamond Glaze to make each ornament shiny, along with Stickles in sequins to the star.  I used several Spellbinders Nestabilities dies on this card …  Oval for the main image and sentiment, Labels Six behind the main image, and the small Lattice Pendant  for the sides of the main image.   I also used Snowflake #2 Cuttlebug die for the two small snowflakes and 2008 MS Collectible Snowflake punch for the two large snowflakes.   Phew!!

Thanks for visiting!

For the “love birds” & Blog Candy


 (Sorry this turned out to be such a lonnnnnnnnngggggggg post!!   Too much to say!!)

Surprise, surprise!  Another from the Gillian Roberts  collection by Stampavie, now in stock at 7 Kids College Fund!   Yes, I know, I have a problem.   lol    I thought these two little birds would be perfect for a special card for any newlyweds on their first Christmas.   This stamp is actually named Robins…  yep, I did it again and colored them as love birds!

I tried to color them to resemble the colors of actual love birds  …   lovebird


Thought it would be fun to add some pink and blue Stickles (Cotton Candy & Faded Jeans) to their stockings ~ kind of like his and her towels!!   🙂




I also added some Green Apple Smooch pearlized paint to their tail feathers for a little bit of bling.  The dp used is from the older Basic Grey Figgy Pudding collection.  The sentiment tag is from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities set Ribbon Tag Trio 2.    


And, the gorgeous little heart is from my dear friend America of the HMDT.   A group of us on the HMDT were being “Secret Sisters” for the month of September ~ Each week we would send a card we made to our Sister, and on the final week a surprise gift package with lots of goodies!   Well, Ms. America  sent an unbelieveable package with sooooooooooooooo many awesome gifts – I was totally floored!!     It felt like Christmas in September!!  Here are a few pictures of my amazing surprise package:


Lots of goodies!!


Ribbons galore!!

Ribbon galore!
