I used my new Martha punch that I got at Michael's and just some textured CS from Joanne's. The tab is SU and I used my decorative accents on the corners and tab.. love those lil dots.. oh and I ticket punched my corners of the CS !! lots of fun this one, she's just to cute!!

This was a stamp I also got at Jazi crafts and I have been wanting this stamp for soooo long and well I actually had to return it cuz it had a few defects .. sad.. oh well this is the one and only card I made until she gets more in..!! so girls make sure your checking your stamps ....now I try to stamp all the images right away on a sheet of paper to make sure they all stamp good ~_^

I've been really busy with other things.. but I'm back..!! and really excited to share with you my cards I made with the two stamp sets from Lauren's blog candy giveaway.. I WAS SO EXCITED TO WIN..! I love both these stamp sets and fortunately I didn't have them.. even better !! I also had a Stampin Up party and got my order in and I was anxious to use my new punches.. I just love gettin new stuff!! lol.. The first card is made from bird day designs from Hero Arts its such a cutie.. I stamped the image with stazon black and colored the birdie in with CTMH markers using buttercup for body and taffy for the beak the hat is with breeze and blush as well as the cake and candle with some hollyhock too.. I used my nestie's for the scallop circles in white CS and hollyhock CS and punched my new tag with my Stampin Up designer label punch inked the edges with breeze and died a CTMH white flower in hollyhock and used a white brad.. sentiment is in hollyhock...the Ric Rac is from the new boom di ada creative basics pack which I LOVE!! The BT is from the boom di ada L2 PP and the textured CS is from Jo Anne's I embossed it with my cuttlebug and used my new nestie's labels trio.. for the sentiment cut out.. I inked the edges with hollyhock and stamped the sentiment also with hollyhock on white CS I stamped the stitches with my CTMH stamp

This card was a lot of fun too... I love the cute cupcake's.. I used this Making Memories paper pack that I scored on at kinko's!!! I went to make a few copies and there it was in a basket of clearance items... it came with ribbon and bling and velvet letters I just loved it and for 2.47 what a steel.. had to have it..!! I used my nestie's for the center oval and punched out the small 1/16Th holes around the scallops.. I used my new Stampin Up ticket punch on the BT and CS and the ribbon is the one that came with the pack.. placed it down with CTMH bigger brads in lavender.. the sentiment is the Stampin Up designer label punch stamped in pink carnation and I used my new hodgepodge hardware.. LOVE IT!! its so cool how they coordinate ... I love COORDINATION !!! The Images I stamped in black stazon and colored in with CTMH markers.. using breeze lavender pink carnation and a lil topiary for the leaf! I used my write N rub pen to adhere the glitter which is Martha Stewart lavender and CTMH prisma glitter.. for the cupcakes..

It's that time of year.. FIESTA TIME!! oh what fun.. gotta love the nice hot summer days and there's nothing like a Margarita on the rocks to go with it! I got this stamp at Cat's craft cupboard and I couldn't wait to use it.. of course the Latina in me was so excited to see this cute lil chihuahua with his sombrero.. and you gotta love his ears stick in right out!! too funny..
To create the card I used a piece of SEI paper called sea foam for the card base and used Creative Imaginations Fiesta and pepper paper for the layering. The red is a textured CS that I got at JoAnne's. The inks are CTMH cranberry and sunflower and for the image I used black stazon. I colored in all images with my watercolor pencils and used a blending pen . The stamps I used .. drink.. CTMH "do nothing" and the chihuahua and cactus are from Inkadinkado "muchos gracias" and the font is from technique tuesday..I inked all edges with either sunflower or cranberry and popped up the one circle with the drink and the message then finished off with a green twine for some texture.. I hope you like it .. FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO CHICA'S.. and SALUTE.. aaahhh the sound of Margarita's clingin.. ;) gotta love it.. hasta next time ..
