This is made with the Eastern Blooms set using basic grey, and riding hood red cardstock. Classic inks used were riding hood red, kiwi kiss, basic gray, and baja breeze. Also did some paper piercing.
The next set was the Cardinal Christmas. I did the faux stained glass technique by stampin on vellum cardstock and embossing clear powder over the chocolate chip craft ink. Then used markers to color the back side of the vellum.
This is one of the images from the A Flower for All Seasons set. I thought these were really cute images.

Then on June 24th, Julian Ysmael was born, our first grandbaby!! I got to be there when he was born!! He was 7lbs 11 ozs and 21 3/4 inches long. He is doing great! And he is such a good baby!! She got lucky with this one. Britney was definitely nothing like him when she was a newborn.
Here he is....
Me and Julian and his chubby cheeks!! I think we are all caught up now with all the happenings since my last posting....My next posting will be the cards we did with the Hayden Stamping Club at the end of June, when Gloria Ruiz was the hostess!!

I had long weekend off for Easter. All day Friday and most of the Sunday, I stamped and made cards. I think I counted 12!! WOW!! I made some Easter, birthday, thank you and just because cards. I will post them below. But of course since then I haven't done anything.
Tonight after I post these pictures, I will be on my way to April's to help her cut out her stamps. We have decided if she gets them cut out and mounted, she will finally use all the stuff she has bought from me and make some cards!! Then she can stop buying cards at the store. I am sure her family and friends will enjoy receiving hand made cards from her.
Well, here are my cards.....
This card uses the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Birthday Whimsey. I used close to cocoa cardstock and embossed the cake with iridescent ice powder. So it is sparkly but you can't tell from the pic. I also used liquid applique and heated it up so it would give a puffy look of icing. The white cardstock was put through the cuttlebug and dry embossed.
This card was very simple. It is on white natural cardstock and I used a $1 stamp from Michaels that I picked a while ago. Then I used my markers to color the flowers and grass. I also added stickles to it to give it a little bling.
I used an old hostess set from the previous stampin up catalog. I don't know the name off hand. I also used the prints background stamp. I love background stamps!! For the cardstock I used chocolate chip and regal rose. I colored in the flowers with markers and off course added stickles for the bling. I did some sponging on the edges of the cardstock.
Used the prints background again but with a different color and also the alphabet soup stamp set that is retired. Used some silk chocolate chip ribbon. Oh, and I pierced along the edges of the blue paper.
Here is another card using the birthday whimsey set, with some close to cocoa cardstock, double sided decorative paper and chocolate chip ribbon. Used my scallop punch to create the icing and another punch to make the flower.
Here is one of the Easter cards I made using the Good Egg stamp set. I didn't buy this my first go around and then I found all these cute cards surfing the web and I had to buy it!! I need to stay off these blogs and websites.
This is the second card with the Good Egg stamp set. I made the strip with flowers by stamping with a stamp multiple times, colored them in and added stickles. I just can't stay away from the glitter. I also stamped his little eggshell on blue cardstock and stamped it and cut it out and glued it over the original stamped image. This is called paper piecing.
Here is the third card I made with the Good Egg set. I cased this card from the Spring - Summer 2008 Stampin' Up Catalog. Great book to get great ideas!! DOn't forget to utilize it!! It is NOT "JUST A CATALOG"!! This was paper pieced together. I did a faux ribbon with the yellow cardstock and my white signo gel pen. I just love this pen. It is great to creat faux stitching too!!
This is the stamp set, Spring Solitude, which is a current Level 2 Hostess set in the SU! catalog. I cased this from another stamper, I can't recall the name at this minute. I only changed the saying on the front because I did not have the stamp she used!! Can you believe that?!?! Not have that set. LOL!!
Well, this is it for now. I have got to get on my way to help April out. And it may be "April" before I post another entry to this blog. But that is only a few days away. Another weekend is on its way!! YEAH!!
Until next time.....

Then I had this hostess set in the current Stampin' Up! catalog called "Spring Solitude", and decided to give this one a try after seeing some awesome cards on some other blogs.
I used my favorite non-SU glitter....Stickles. The scan of these cards just doesn't do justice to the cards. They look prettier in real life......

We used the Happy Heart Set and made this card on a Pumpkin Pie base, and Tempting Teal, and Rose Red accents. Also DSP from the Bali Breeze set.
Then we used the same stamp set to make this candy holder. I used Kraft cardstock with the Pretty in Pink accent. On both projects we used the Stampin' Write Markers to color in the images.
This is the candy holder open. I used the small trident pack of gum but you can use small hershey or other chocolate candy.
It seems like there is a baby epidemic going on.
Actually, one of my members Leslie, from my Kearny club just had twins. They are grandbabies of Vickie and niece and nephew of Tiffany, of which are also both of my Kearny club. Also Vickie's daughter, Crystal, is also expecting. CONGRATULATIONS!!
I will also be a grandma sometime at the beginning of July. My daughter, Britney, is expecting a baby. We still don't if she is having a boy or girl yet.
Anyways, we made this gift card holder, which was geared for maybe a baby shower or gift. This card used the Nursery Necessities on a Certainly Celery base, Barely Banana and Bashful Blue accents. The star is stamped with the Craft Barely Banana Stamp Pad and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
All stamp sets and supplies used for these projects are from Stampin' Up!
