In Memory of Charlene

Hello!  Today I have the honor of participating in a very special challenge on the CCEE blog today. The post is dedicated to our wonderful, amazing m&m-loving friend, Charlene, who lost her battle to cancer.  Today is her birthday so we are celebrating her life----All of the current and past CCEE members made a card that was either inspired by one in her gallery or by things she loved---the color purple, m&ms, penguins!
 
I made two cards inspired by her love of the color purple. 
 


I know Charlene is having a rockin', party in heaven today :)  Head on over to the CCEE blog to see all the wonderful cards in tribute to her.

Love Always

Hello!  Long time no blog!!  I have been busy with the kids and de-cluttering the house and have not had much time to get my hands inky.  But, now that my office is nice and clean and organized....I took a little time to make a card :)

I used Elegant Flourishes set from Gina K Designs and stamped the large flourish and the smaller flourish using Moonlit Fog ink.  I used some flowers to embellish the large flourish.  The sentiment sticker is from SRM Stickers : Fancy Sticker Sentiments, Love.


Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Stamp SALE :)

UPDATE:  ALL STAMP BOXES HAVE BEEN SOLD! 

Hi there!  I am finally getting around to finishing up cleaning out my office.  It has taken awhile.... as a result of the great clean-out,  I thought I would offer up stamp surprise packages.  In each box I will include at least 10 large sets (smaller sets count for 1/2 set, single stamps will just be extras).  I will put an assortment of companies and stamps in each box (as pictured below).   The price will be $60, which includes shipping to anywhere in the United States.  I promise that this will be a great deal---:)

Here is a peek at some of the sets getting ready to go to a new home--

If you are interested in a box---please email me at cammie22@hotmail.com and I can send you pictures and give you details.
The stamps are gently used, although some have not been used at all.  Some stamp sets have coordinating dies with them as well.

Gotta clean out so I can make room for the new stuff!  Email me if you are interested.  Hope to be back soon with a card (now that the kids are back in school!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love is in the Air!

:)  Yep! That is the theme for this week's challenge on StampTV hosted by me!  The challenge is to create a card using LOVE in any way---it can be a Valentine's card or a general card or even a Christmas card.  The only key is to incorporate the word LOVE or a heart onto the card.  Easy-because I know it is a crazy week for all of us!

You can see the challenge post HERE.

Here is my card for the challenge:


I used these stamp sets from Gina K---Elegant Flourishes and Lots of Lines.  I stamped the large flourish on white cardstock and then punched out the heart shape.  The result is a flourished heart.  (I have to try this with flocking!)  I embellished the card and then stamped the sentiment below.

Hope you give it a try---I would love to see what you come up with!

Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3!


Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K Designs December Inspiration Hops.  Remember to leave a comment on each blog of the hop because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

Today, we are showing projects created with Lots of Thanks and Celebration Diva!
For my first card, I used the thank you for Lots of Thanks and the dotted strip from the set.  I paired it with the large flourish in Elegant Flourishes set, which I stamped with In the Navy and Ocean Mist ink.  I stamped the snowflake from the Season's Greetings StampTV kit and punched it out and added a few rhinestones. 

 
 
Next, I paired another sentiment from Lots of Thanks with the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes stamped in Grass Green ink for a quick and easy thank you:


Next, I stamped the thank you from Lots of Thanks and then punched it out and placed it on a label that I die cut.  I stamped the dots from the set below the sentiment and placed it on top of a flourish from Elegant Flourishes:
 
Finally, I have a card showing off the fabulous new Diva- Celebration Diva!  I created the background by stamping the circles from Elegant flourishes in Sweet Corn ink.  I stamped the girl in black ink and colored her dress and accessories with a black marker.  I added a few glitter drops to her bubbly drink and added a pearl to the flower on her headband.  I finished off this card with a sentiment from Lots of Lines:


That is it for me today! Head on over to these blogs for more inspirational projects using these sets:

Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2!


Hello again---Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs Inspiration Hops!  We hope you are inspired by all of the projects today. As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.
 
Today we are sharing projects created with Elegant Flourishes and Stamper's Favorites!
 
For my first card, I combined the two sets.  I stamped the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes with Grass green ink.  I stamped one smaller flourish in the two bottom corners and another to frame the sentiment.  The gorgeous hummingbird and sentiment are from Stamper's Favorites.  I added the little flowers onto the flourish (and colored them with a Copic marker!)
 
 
My next card combines the sets as well (see--they just go together so well :)  I stamped the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes in black ink and then stamped the flower from Stamper's Favorites using Red Hot ink on white cardstock.  I colored the flower using Copic markers.  I stamped the sentiment from Stamper's Favorites in black.   For this card I used the tiny dot arches that are in the Elegant Flourishes set.  The arch of dots fits the inside of the large leg of the flourish perfectly.  BUT....you can arrange the stamp to fit all the inside and outside loops of the flourish because of the ease of bending clear stamps!  I stamped the circle arch in Moonlit Fog ink.
 



My next card also features both sets.  I embossed the butterfly from Stamper's Favorites in white on blue cardstock and added some black rhinestones on it.  I stamped the smaller flourishes from Elegant Flourishes on Kraft cardstock in Gina K white pigment ink.  The sentiment is from Stamper's Favorites:



Next, this card features the closed dotted circle from Elegant Flourishes.  I stamped the circle in black on the card and then punched small circles to fill in the design.  I used a sentiment from Lots of Lines to finish up this birthday greeting:

Finally, A little Christmas card that uses both sets.  I stamped the flourish (just inked the top part of the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes) in Red Hot ink.  I punched the tree shape to place on top of the flourish.  I stamped a sentiment from Stamper's Favorites in Red Hot ink under the patterned paper strip:

    Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 1


    Welcome to Day 1 of the December Gina K Designs Inspiration Hops.   As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

    Today we are sharing projects using Vertical Greetings and It's the Little Things!

    My first card showcases the gorgeous poppies from Vertical Greetings paired with a sentiment from the set.  I stamped the poppies, colored them with Copic markers and then cut them out.  I added them to the panel I die cut from patterned paper.  For the base of this card, I stamped the large flourishes from Elegant Flourishes set in Grass Green ink so that I could pop the poppy panel over them.  I stamped the little dragonfly from Vertical Greetings on one flourish using Sweet Corn Ink.


    Next, I have a card I shared on the Illustrator hop the other day.  I paired a Vertical Greeting with a smaller flourish from Elegant Flourishes to create this greeting:

    For my next card, I used the adorable elephant from It's the Little Things.  So cute!  I stamped the balloon and paper pieced it and then added some white accents.  I stamped the sentiment in black and Red Hot ink. I added a little black rhinestone to his eye to make it more dimensional.

    Next, I sat the little fox from It's the Little Things on the large flourish from Elegant Flourishes.  I used a sentiment from Vertical Greetings to finish this card:
