Hi I know I have not been keeping up with my blog lately and I am sorry for that.... Ever since blogger changed I have found it harder to work with. It has already take me 1 hour to get this post up and running. 
I am participating in Summer Card camp 2. There is a lot going on I have made one card and half way done with my second card for class. Thanks to Jennifer and Kristina for the wonderful color combo and 3 great card sketches. There is a lot of great ideas going on in class. Now for my first card. 

In class they showed their sample using gelatos. I don't own any gelatos so i used distressed ink on water color paper. I didn't have the same stamps that they used so I just used a square reverse stamp that had a small image and it worked great. I am loving the effect. I also used  a stamp from memory box and embossed in white. The butterfly is a die cut from IO and I used the word window punch from stampin up. Thank and the flower are Papertrey ink.

A Strawberry Delight

 My Daughter and me love strawberries. So I When I saw these stamps I fell in love. The are by flourishes stamps they have been out for a while and I have owned them at least that long. 
Sometimes I forget some of the stamp sets that I have so every now and then I will sort through them like a kid with a tin of  buttons. 
So as you can see I pulled this set out and made 2 cards. They where a lot of fun to sit and color.
The Banners I made myself. I know that there are dies out there that can cut them and all you have to do to is fold but I just didn't have it in the budget to buy them. It  just took trial and error and I got it twice LOL(it doesn't mean I will be able to do it again hehe.)

Fathers Day Card

Happy Fathers card I made using Wplus9
cookies and milk stamp set and die. Loving it.

Silent Night

It has been a while since I have made a post but I am here to share a card that I made for Holiday Card class and PTI.
I love this little guy and have waited a long time to get. So here he is all decked out ready for more snow. The snow flakes are random from PTI Hero Arts and October Afternoon.
I used spellbinders dies to make the window. The Penguin is from PTI as well as the Silent night sentiment.

SYS Day 6 again -Thank you

Can you tell I really love this idea of cutting out of the side of the card. I knew this was one set I was excited to try . The Daisy is from MFT stamps. the paper that is sassafraslass I knew I wanted to use this and I had a heck of a time finding I thought I a lot turns out I have less than a half a sheet. I am bummed. And my only local scrapbook store is now closed boohoo......

SYS day 6 butterflys

Ok I know Day 6 again right? Well Get over it lol I still have one more post to share after this one. ; ) I loved this idea so I made two butterfly cards and scrap paper yet again from Amy Butler(I just love her style) paper the butterflies and from beautiful butterflies by papertrey ink. Since the stamps are solid I made my own design in the wings. I so can't draw but I did my best and I like the result. I really like them both but I think the orange one is my favorite.

SYSDay 5 Birthday Happiness

I love the card that Jennifer McGuire did for SYS day 5 so I did my own spin on this card. I love clouds and sunshine and hot air balloons. Abby and I will go out side early before the bus comes (of corse during school) and see what we can see in the clouds we always have fun doing that the crazy thing we ever saw was a cloud crocodile and a baby one that was bigger than our house..... Ok now on to my card. I used Hero Arts cards. My slice vintage finding for the sun Papertry ink up up and away hot air balloons. Papertreyink clouds as MFT clounds and the inner sun is from MFT. I cut 2" from the top of the card and scored two lines across.
