Cherish Love

SSIC challenge is to use monochramatic cream or white.  This was a challenge for me. I decided to use Cuttlebug Grace's Frame and then use those white rub-ons from SU that have been sitting in a bin. Flowers and 1/2 pearl are from the Pretties Kit-another purchase that I thought I would use and have barely touched. I am so glad for these challenges that are helping me to use my stash!  Otherwise I guess I was just not thinking outside my usual same old same old card.  I love the challenges and viewing everyone's interpretation of them.  Thank you to all. --It's kind of difficult to see the rub-ons There are three of them- Cherish, Love and the floral .

sparkly holiday

ODBD challenge choice- I chose Sparkly and Texture -BG is embosssed with CB folder snowflakes, Pinecone image is SU. I  stamped pinecone image in white pigment on Real Red SU CS and embossed with clear EP.  Then inked all over with VersaMark pad.  Sprinkled with Heat and Stick Powder (SU) heated, sprinkled again with SU Diamonds Glitter, heat again.  Then trimmed with SU scissors Colonial.  Added SU Real Red ribbon.  Simple and elegant. Inside greeting stamped with Red and red EP

Caardvaark Challenge

The challenge at Caardvaark is to see the inside from the outside.  I used an acrylic circle to show the snowflake stamped inside.  Photographing it was a lot tougher than making it.  :)  It is centered when the card is closed it just doesn't look like it the way I had to photo it.   Thanks for looking.  Thanks Barbara for the tip of Caardvaark's web page.

One layer card

When I saw this technique I just had to try it.  What a great idea for a one layer card.  The details can be found here where I shamelessly stamp lifted the whole thing.

I am entering the card for One Layer Wednesday which is a new site I found. Thanks for looking.  Isn't learning new things just sooo fun?????

Silent Night

Here is a CAS card to enter for the winter blog hop with TSG  Such cute stamps they have.
This beautiful stamp came from Friends of Speedy Cat.  It is an absolutely gorgeous set being released for November.  The beauty and simplicity is something you will get a lot of use from.

Noel-Speedy Cat's Challenge #26

Just wanted to post a card made with my new stamps from friends of Speedy Cat.  They came to me free when my name was drawn for the blog hop. The stamps are gorgeous and I am grateful for them. Notice the difference just adding a black line frame makes.
I like it so much better than w/o.

This set is titled Speedy the Cat's Holiday Collection -Musical Holiday 2010-
SU -all papers
SU-Gold detail embossing pwd
Cuttlebug die cuts

I am entering it in the contest at Mark's Finest Papers

Thanks again for this gorgeous set.


This past week has been busy but mostly with trying to get my computer straightened.  It must have missed me for five days and decided to show me how much I needed her. Anyway I'm glad to have the problems solved.

WHEW! I got back on Sunday evening from Salt Lake City.  What a wonderful time we had at the nutritional convention. It was my first one with this company and it was a great experience. Such caring people.  You know how it feels when someone sincerely wants to help you?  It's built into the very fiber of this company.

If you know anyone who wants to get back the resilience and youthful feeling or move away from pain share this link with them because I do care deeply when I hear about people who's health fails them.  Everything is going along fine and then BAM something comes up seemingly out of the blue and they miss the good health they once had.  Just click here to watch a short video and know that you can give your body a HUGE boost in the right direction. The results we heard were nothing short of shocking.

Thank you to each of you who have commented and encouraged me in my lifetime to continue to research and help those who are looking for change before they are in a necessity change mode. Have a wonderful weekend. With care-Janeen

Embossed Thank You

In all things Give Thanks
I saw this link on Rebekka's site for a Give Thanks card.  I was looking at the JUGS site and the Daily Bread and figured out how to do a card to meet all the challenges.  I embossed the leaves on the pearlescent gold from marco's papers with the cuttlebug EF,  the deep purple is also marco's papers embossed with SU brass template.  Image is SU stamped on acrylic with Staz-on and colored with Tim Holtz alcohol inks Eggplant, Lettuce and Butterscotch. Purple ribbon is SU other ribbon is unknown but purchased at the Stamp Shoppe in Weston.  Thanks for looking have a wonderful week.  It's gorgeous fall weather here in mid Wisconsin. (add-on...When you stamp with the Staz-On on the front of the acrylic piece you use the alcohol inks on the back of the image.  Turn the acrylic over and paint it.)

I stamped this for StampTV color challenge this week and am also entering in ForFun Challenges which is to use something you have never used before.
Something hiding in your stash.  LOL.  I have had these large gems for a long time and couldn't seem to find a way to use them. I love it on this card.  Will have to make more just to use them up.  :)
Also entered in Speedy The Cat Friends which is use some stripes.  (Thanks Joanne)
