Here's to another year full of adventures!

Hello Stampers!
Happy Friday to you!!  Can you believe it's the LAST Friday of the year?
I thought this would be a great card to end the year with!  It's from the new stamp set, Balloon Adventures.  I think it's such a fun stamp set!
In a bundle it comes with some great matching framelits, you are going to love!  The Balloon Bouquet punch also coordinates with it.

Thank you for all your support this past year!  I love sharing my ideas and generating ideas for others!  YOU are the reason I keep up with this blog!
Happy Creating!!

Thank you for joining me today.

2017 New Year's cards using Washi Tape

Hello my crafty friends!
So glad you popped on over to my blog today.
I have another New Year's card to show you, well actually 4 of them!   I wanted to use up some of my Washi tape so I wrapped it around a piece of Whisper White cards stock.  Cut a piece of 1" x 4" Glimmer Paper, layered it next to the Washi Tape.
I used the numbers from the Large Number Framelits to cut out 2017.
I added Sharpie colored Gems and Enamel Dots from the Annual catalog also ones I had on hand from Past Project Life kits and Paper Pumpkin.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday, it's card challenge day!

Hi Stampers!
I have a fun sketch challenge for you!  This time it's from Split Coast Stampers!
I used two Sale-a-Bration sets, Delicate Details and Avant-Garden.

Card stock used: Sweet Sugar Plum, Whisper White and Elegant Eggplant.

When I seen these stamps I knew of one person who has always been there for me no matter what! My Mom.  She's a gem, my true hero.  No matter what rotten things life has thrown at her she is always positive and is the most giving and caring person I know.
Here is their card sketch layout.  I have a GALLERY  at Split Coast Stampers you can check out.  I used to be under MTBlackpearl, but I decided it would make it simpler to have only one stamping name, so I started a new one!

Thank you for stopping by today!

I sure hope you had a lovely Christmas!  Was Santa good to you?  I am always asked that after Christmas. ha-ha  I just like the thought of being together, I wish we had more days like this.
Here is my project share for today.  I used Falling Petals Textured Embossing Folder, Love Notes Framelits dies, and Sealed with Love from the new Occasions catalog.
I love the beautiful Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack in Sweet Sugarplum and Silver from the Holiday Catalog, so I used that to add some fun extras to the card!  This is available until January 3rd! Occasions catalog starts January 4th.

Hello Stampers,
Happy Friday to you!  Not just any Friday however, it's the FRIDAY before CHRISTMAS!  All you last minute planners, this is your time!  ha-ha
Here is my project share for today.  I wanted to share this project and send out a great big THANK YOU for all of you for following my blog, and being a valuable Customer!  YOU inspire me to create.
I really like the Holly Textured Embossing Folder and Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.
I also found some DSP from last year and using the same great photopolymer stamp set created this card.  It's a "Z-fold' card without the z part.  I cut it off to create the flap.

Be Joyful Christmas Tree

Hi Stampers,

Happy day to you!  So glad you could pop on over to my blog today!
I dug out the Work of Art Stamp set and created a fun two tones Christmas tree.  With the largest swish.
I wanted to make my daughter a card and she just loves purple.  This this is what I came up with.  I was not sure if I would like the 'greens' with Perfect Plum.  It actually kind of grew on me.
I used Garden Green and Always Artichoke for the tree and Elegant Egg Plant ink for sentiment.  The snowflakes are from a Project Life Accessories kit,
Brights Enamel Dots are what I used for the center of the snowflakes.  Finally, I used Gold Glitz Dazzling Details and spread it over the tree.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hello Stampers!
Happy Friday to you!   Have you gotten all your Christmas shopping done?   If you have a crafter on your list you can pick up a gift certificate from me!  She/he will LOVE being able to choose new products from the Occasions Catalog!  Not a crafter?  No problem!  I also sell my cards. You can pick out an assortment and place them in one of my hand made boxes.

Here is my project share for today.
With the crazy hustle and bustle of the season I wanted to share with you a fun and quick card!  This card is made with the Candy Cane Lane DSP.
I cut the cute gingerbread men, candy and houses out and popped the large one up on dimensionals.
You can't much simpler than this!

Penguin Pencil Toppers

Hi Stampers!
So glad you could join me today.  I hope you are staying warm from where ever you are!  Seems like everyone is in a deep freeze!  Brrr!

I would like to share a project my daughter and I made for her classmates.
The stamp is not Stampin' Up!
It's from Great Impressions I found at a cute little store while traveling through North Dakota.
In pretzel bags we put two pencils, an eraser and sharpener.  It's a useful gift for her classmates other than candy all the time.  I do want to say Stampin' Up! does offer the 'pretzel' size bags, I just had these on hand.  :)

Thank you for joining me today.
Have a STAMPendous day!
