Spring Parade Stamp TV Kit

I finally got my Spring Parade Stamp TV Kit!!  I Love it, the 4 mini stamp sets, the printed paper, and the coordinating cardstock. The kit also came with an assortment of brads and some of the most beautiful ribbons I have ever seen!!!
This is a picture of the stamp sets in the kits and how I have chosen to store them. I cut down the inserts and glued them to the front of a stamp storage sheet, then flipped it over and attached the stamps.
Four of these will fit in a binder box, and since I also purchased 4 stamp set Duos during the sale they all will fit in 1 box!

Now on to the fun part, playing with my new toys... I have been watching Gina's videos using this kit and waiting eagerly to play along.  Here are my first two cards.

And here is a pic of the other 4 stamp duos I bought. Cute Right??

Thanks for stopping by I appreciate your comments. Susan

3D Shadow Boxes

This week I made 4 Shadow Boxes for my Grandbabies.  I downloaded the template from the Silhouette store and cut them out with my Portrait. They are a bit of work to put together, so many pieces to to fold and tape together. Take it from me use score tape to adhere them as I tried others but they came apart.

I made a few Mother's Day cards for the three's challenge over at Stamp TV, I used three cardstock colors, three printed papers, three layers, three ribbons and three rhinestones to make three cards.

I think they turned out rather nice, what do you think??

I made it Myself

I made my own ink storage from foam core board, and white duct tape.

First I made the back and added sides and upright supports to fit my ink pads...

Next I measured the height of the ink pads and cut slots to slide the shelves into, at this point it was only held together with a few pieces of tape

 Here it is finished all uprights and shelves cut and in place, it was a lot of work, cutting and measuring, it is not perfect but for under $10.00 it is perfect!!

Of course after all that and watching Gina's latest video over at www.stamptv.com I had to make a card.

Thanks for stopping by

Wednesday , the week is half way done

Happy Hump Day!!  I have a couple cupcakes to celebrate!!
These were made using the Gina K Designs "Birthday Hoot" paper pack and the stamps are from "Sweet Tweets" stamp set. I added some bling with the rhinestones, stickles, and a sakura glitter pen.  The cupcake was cut out by my Silhouette Portrait and cut files from GKD. The lacey cIrcle and banner were cut out of Die-namics from MFT. 

Thanks for coming by and I hope you likes what you saw!!

It's Monday

I have been busy over the past week and made some more cards for you to see.

This one was a quick Birthday card, I made to use my new chevron embossing border.

This was an experiment to see if I could cut this flower border with my Silhouette

 This card used Gina K's new double color embossing technique, in my opinion is is very cool lol
 This was a sketch challenge from the cutting Garden, a local paper craft studio
This one was made using this weeks color combo from over at Splitcoaststampers

Thanks for coming by and having a look, please leave a common and let me know you were here Thanks Susan

Happy Tuesday!!

I have been busy creating over the past week or so. I am still in LOVE with my Portrait. Today I thought I would share some of my recent creations.

Here I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out the flower and Doily. The stamps are from Gina K. Designs, the set is called Poster board Sentiments

Negative stamping Technique

Portrait was used to cut the hot pink lacy circle layer and spiky flower.

I used the new Free Birthday Hoot stamp set, from Gina K Designs,  the cut file, and patterned new patterned paper pack for this one.

Hexagons are very popular this season so I cut out this Hexagon background using my portrait and a cut file from the Silhouette store. The focal Image is from Gina K's All occasions labels 2

Lots of dots just needed some ink, so I made my own DP with it. The label  is from another new set from Gina K Designs called  All occasion labels 2
 I am on the Studio Calico waiting list for their monthly Project life kit and they sent me a free stamp set. The set contains the sentiment below and another diagonal line border stamp. The border under the sentiment was made using this months one free with three stamp set called Petite Borders. They are seriously cute!!

This card combines two new stamp sets Poster board sentiments and Lots of dots.
Phew that was a lot of cards I hope you liked them!!  Thanks for Stopping by!!
