I got my SAB stuff a few weeks ago and I was really anxious to play with it! I looked on Splitcoaststampers for inspiration and I actually started out using SC215. I have never played along with any of the challenges because I am not quite sure yet how. I am just a "lurker" most of the time. I love looking at everyone's creativity. There are some awesome crafters out there! Check out some of my favorites on the right! The card is not exactly like it was supposed to be but the end result turned out nice, I thought. What do you think? So Saffron CS, Chocolate chip ink, the sentiment is from Dreams du Jour, Kraft taffeta ribbon and the new cordouroy buttons (love'em!) in Kraft. Oh, yeah and the Delicate Dots DSP! Thanks for loooking!

I LOVE THIS CARD!! It is so cute! Our Bunco theme for February was barnyard animals. I immediately knew I would make cards as my gift, but my animal was supposed to be a pig and I couldn't find a stamp of a pig anywhere! So, I found this cute cow stamp at Michael's and my "Thank Moo" card idea took off! I used Kraft, Basic Black and Whisper White CS. Unfortunately, my SU! collection does not include little bitty letters yet so I got these at Michael's also along with the ribbon. I stamped the little letters on WW CS and punched the scallop circle in Basic Black. Don't you just love the little pink flower brad? It totally made the card! Totally!!
Well...finally a new card to post!! I actually have a couple, I have just been lazy this last couple of weeks and by the time I get home from work, it's dark and I can't take photos without the sunlight! The colors for this card were inspired by some paisley napkins I saw at Target this morning. Although this card didn't turn out quite like I planned (do they ever?) I really like it! This one is for my Uncle Marvin in Kansas who just came out of the hospital. I didn't want it too girly and I think I succeeded. I stamped the butterfly from SU! Dreams du Jour in Not Quite Navy ink onto Vary Vanilla CS (if you look closely you can see that I inked the edges of the VV also) and I used the inkpad to "dye" my (non SU!) ribbon. The base of the card is Not Quite Navy CS with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive cardstock behind the Very Vanilla. I threw in some retired DSP because I felt like I needed a pattern. I also got to try the Chit-Chat rub-ons I just got! I still have a hard time trying to design my own cards and layouts but I must be getting better because I am fall in love with each new card I make! I hope you like it!

Well, since Hubby decided I was using too much Riding Hood Red, his Valentine card was made with Pacific Point and Baja Breeze! Of course, I used the Love You Much stamp set and the 3 heart punch! I was really surprised at how much I liked the end result. Hubby liked it too!! What do you think?

I finally made another card! I have spent so much time just organizing my stuff, I haven't made time to stamp! Well, my Mom's Birthday is tomorrow so of course I had to make a card! Here it is! I thought it turned out pretty good! Hubby thinks its time to change the color of my cards - too much red! Well, I am still waiting for my new stuff to get here! I hope it gets here soon! I need to make my project to get ready for my next class on February 22.
Sorry, the picture is kinda dark, but my ususal "photo shop" is out of commission right now! i'll post the new project as soon as I see the UPS man!!!
