Baby It's Cold Outside

Hey all,

Today I wanted to share a card that I made for the Farm Fresh challenge over at This is the first time Ive participated in this was alot of fun..and Lord knows Ive got tons of TGF stamps to choose from lol.=) So the prompt this time was Embossing-I used my cuttlebug snowflakes folder for the entire background of the card and then used my Beanie Anya stamp, I thought she was fitting for how the weather has been lately..she looks so cozy and warm! I colored her up with my prisma pencils as usual and a sentiment from American Crafts. Thanks for checkin in and keep warm!=)

Paper Smooches Sparks

Hidy Ho Neighbors!

Im back today with a card that I made for the PS Sparks Challenge..I always have a lot of fun with the inspiration for these challenges and this time was no soon as I saw it I knew I had to use my new Hero Arts tree trunks stamp..Im totally in love with this stamp at the moment!! So I stamped the front-facing scooter from the PS "spiffy Scooters" set,masked it off and then stamped my trees a couple of times with Walnut Stain distress ink..then I stamped the scooter again on a seperate piece of cardstock and colored it up with my prisma colored pencils then popped it up. Once again I went pretty literal and didnt stray too far from the inspiration photo..but its so cute I think it works=) I rounded the top corners of the image and card with my 1/4 inch corner chomper,added some brown twine for texture and slapped it on a white card base to keep things crisp and clean looking..its very retro, I love it! The color of orange and the woodgrain go perfectly together. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go check out and join the fun! Have a great day!

Hey guys,

Another quickie card share today. I just got this Hero Arts Tree Trunks stamp and was dying to pair it up with my Gorjuss Little Foxes stamp..I love how it turned out! It really finishes the whole scene and adds another dimension to the card=) I kept the layout really simple so the image could really shine..I used some of the Basic Grey Pyrus papers,sewed around the edges and that was pretty much it. Thanks for stoppin by!

Halloween Card Series2011 Day 1

Good morning everyone!

I want to say a quick "Thank You" to all of my new followers!=) Today kicks off the first day of my 2011 Halloween card series..Im so excited!!

For this card I used a digi image from she's such a cutie isn't she?? The sentiment comes from the Amy R Ghostly Greetings stamp set from I colored her with my prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) on some Papertrey Ink stampers select cardstock. I used the Matilda 6x6 paper pad from Cosmo Cricket and a little twine from the twinery. You can see the process on my youtube channel (scrappyhour09)

I hope you all enjoy this series and come back tomorrow for Day 2! I havent quite decided how many vids will be in this series just yet,Im aiming for at least 5 but if I get more that's great! You can imagine how hard it is to make a bunch of cards with two toddlers running around wreaking havoc=)

I think I may be slowly getting my mojo back (YAY!!!) Ive been so bummed out thinking that it may not return in time for the Halloween Card series that I was planning, but now I believe the show will go on=) Ive already filmed the first vid in the series but will probably wait until I get the last of my Halloween supplies that I ordered before uploading anything. This past week my hubby was off and we celebrated his "birth week" lol so I didnt really get a whole lot of crafting done,but I needed a few thank you cards so here is what I came up with.

This first card I used some scraps of paper that I had lyin around. The blue dot paper is from Bo Bunny Whooligans (last years halloween line) and the rest I cant remember where they are from sorry! The little striped flags are a Studio calico stamp and the main witch image is from CC Designs..I colored her up with my prismacolor pencils as usual and the sentiment is from the Amy R Ghostly Greetings set.

And for this second card I used my new Paper Smooches "My Peeps" stamp set that came in yesterday..I just love these little birdies!! I used the MME Life of the Party was a pretty simple card to make and Im pretty happy with how it came out.

Anywho, as soon as the rest of my packages come in I will have a haul video for you all and then the halloween card series should follow soon!=) I hope you all have a great week!

On the Mend

Just another quick card share for you all today. I made this card a few days ago but am just getting around to posting it. I used my new Lawn Fawn " On the Mend" stamp favorite image is this little bandaid..and you all know how much I love rainbows..I thought they went well together since rainbows are cheerful and whatnot=) I used several patterns from different 6x6 paper pads in my stash. The little pink ribbon wasnt exactly what I had in mind at first (I was going to use twine) but I had a small run in with a black ink pad so I had to use something a little thicker to cover it up..I guess you could call it a happy accident..cuz I think it came out pretty cute and I never would have thought to use ribbon since Im so obsessed with twine lately. The sentiment is also from this stamp set and I stamped the "get well soon" sentiment on the inside of the card. Thanks for stoppin by and I hope you all have a great week!=)

Paper Smooches Sparks

Happy World Card Making Day!! Today I wont be able to make too many cards unfortunately but I did get a chance to make this little card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. I just loved the inspiration this really spoke to me, I tried to stay away from the obvious "baby" theme but I just couldn't resist..the colors were just too perfect for it=) I used the PS A Little Loving stamp set for the little ellies and sentiment. The polaroid is from the Lawn Fawn say Cheese stamp set. I ruffled up some ribbon at the bottom and sewed across it with my sewing machine. I added some green baker's twine and an itty bitty clothespin to "hold" the photo. I hope you enjoyed seeing my project and go check out for more info on the sparks challenge as well as all of their awesome stamps!=)
