I made this card for Asela's sketch challenge. I colored the owls with koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. Then I inked them with versamark and heat embossed. Next I cut them out. For the background I cut out a 1 1/2 inch circle and used it to mask my moon, and them I sponged with bashful blue, blue bayou, night of navy and finished with a little basic black. Lastly I used my gel pen to add stars. Thanks for looking.

Gina K. is having a sketch challenge this weekend on her blog. It is fun sketch and I just got my Gina K. stamps about a week ago so this was very fun for me. I just love her stamps.
To create a parking space just popped into my head when I was coloring the car, and it goes perfect with the saying in this set. All I did was take a strip of gray paper and draw in the lines with a gel pen, super simple.
Now for the old lady I stamped her on white and colored her and the car with Koh-I-Noor pencils and used OMS. Next I cut it
out and stamped the whole image with versamark and clear embossed her three times. Lastly I added the pearl, and glued her into her parking space.
On the inside I stamped the phase " getting lucky means you found your car in the parking lot."
Thanks for looking.

This card meets four different challenges. The first one is for Melanie Muenchinger. You can check out the challenge here.The second and third challenges are the ways to use it (WT173) and the sketch challenge (SC183) from SCS, and the last one is the dazzle us with something challenge on Stamp Something. I am loving this set from Gina K. It was fun making this card, I used lovely lilac and certainly celery with whisper white for the paper. After stamping the hippo I stamp the little flower and then drew in the stem and added a small rhinestone to the center. I then cut it out with my rectangle nestablilities and sponged the edges. On the hippo I water colored her in lovely lilac water color crayons added purple toenail polish (twinklettes). Then I made some eyelashes for her by cutting grosgrain ribbon length wise and then fringing it. Here is a close-up.
For the background I stamped the flower in lovely lilac ink matted it on whisper white. for the celery layer I scored it in a diamond pattern and mounted it under the lilac layer. then added the "dew drops" from Michael's. I really like this girly card. Thanks for looking.

I wanted to wish Allison from Stampin when I Can. A very Happy Birthday!! If you have never been to her site head on over. She does an awesome job posting tips, challenges, links to new blogs she has found and much, much more. So Allison here is a card I made in honor of your birthday I hope you have a great day and get the nesties that you want. By the way I am just a little green over here, I would love to have a monitor like the one you got. Lucky girl.
For this card I used my largest scallop circle nestabilities, only I folded my card stock in half and offset the fold so that it would not cut and that gave me my card base. Thanks for looking.

A couple of months back I started buying nestabilities from Cut At Home if you haven't heard every month they give a coupon code for 40% one item. They have good service, but be prepared to wait awhile for you nestabilities to arrive they have been back ordered most of the Spring.
Anyway back to the reason I am posting about them today. I needed a way to store them and did some blog surfing and found where someone ( sorry I don't remember who) who stored hers in a CD wallet on magnetic sheets. I thought it was a great idea so I went to Staples to buy some magnetic sheets, they were out which was a disappointment so I consoled myself with a walk down the Michael's (it is only two stores down). While there I found that they sell the sheets much cheaper than Staples and I had a coupon. You can see in the picture how they look. I cut the magnet sheets 4 1/4 x 4 1/2 using my paper trimmer and an old blade, I have to tell you it cut like butter. I then labeled each of them so that I can keep them all straight. I didn't have a extra CD wallet and didn't really want to buy one (I would rather spend the money on stamps), so I used a binder and CD pages the are two high so that when I get the long rectangles I can make a small slit in the top one so that they will fit. Here is a close up picture.
Thanks for looking.
This is what the packages look like if you are interested in buying some for yourself.
