Homer Hello!

Got to play in my craft room a couple of times during my vacation.  This card (although it is full sized), is based on a card set by Tammie E. at One Happy Stamper 
Her set is 3.5 X 3.5 and come in their own cute little box.  She really has the best crafting imagination when it comes to cards and 3D paper art!
and inside......
The Essentials:
The stamp is from Whipper Snappers
The embossing is a Darice Embossing folder
The edge punch is EK Success
The coloring is copics
The cloud stamp is from Memory Box Dies
Southern Girl's Challenge:  Warm Fuzzies
Crafter's CafĂ©:  Embossing
Inky Impressions:  Animal


Playing with FBD!

Playing with some stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs today.  Found a cute template on Split Coast Stampers for a handled box.  It's just big enough to hold one of those small packages of ground coffee from the store.  If you are ever in need of really adorable "coffee-based" stamps, FBD is the site to go to!  Heather has many other designs but is truly known for the caffeinated ones, LOL. 

All paper are from my stash.
The ribbon is from Stampin up.
Digis and sentiment stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs
Colored with copics.
Dragonfly die from Magnolia.
Handle cut out from SpellBinders.
Flowers are hand-made.

Hello, I'm back!

Its been 13 months since I last blogged.  I have done a few necessary cards while I have been away but not many.  In the past year I completed my BSN (yeah! Western Governor's University).  Now that I have my life back, I find myself gravitating back to my craft room.  Although I have been back making cards for the last month, this is my favorite so far and my "hello" back to the paper craft blogging world.  ( It's also for a friend that moved all the way across the country last month :P  )
