Made by mistake...

"Get well soon" sock monkey
I didn't make this guy on purpose. It was only by chance. I have to make cards for my swap at my up lines house for this month. And when I was coloring them in I guess I forgot to color his arm in. So as I noticed it, it looked like a cast. I popped up his arm with dimensional and it looks realistic in person. I didn't have a small enough get well stamp so i printed it on the computer.
Paper: New In color, kiwi kiss, pacific point, DSP= bella rose
Ink: choc. chip, close to cocoa, barely banana, New pink
Access: SU silver brads, tempting turquoise ribbon(which matches pretty good) and the mat pack
star punches=small and big, window punch, photo punch, the new awesome SU scallop punch which is going to be in the fall/winter 2009 catalog.

SC184 sketch challenge

I have to make a card using this? How is that going to be possible?

SC184 challenge for July 9th 2008

Rock and Roll technique:

This is my 1st challenge for splitcoaststampers. I was kind of nervous since I've never done anything like this before. And I thought that this layout was a harder but after working on it is. Hope that you like it.

ingredients: All stampin' up!

stamps: priceless, brocade motif(background)
paper: pretty in pink, rose red, whisper white
ink: same as paper
access: pretty in pink ribbon, silver SU ribbon charm slider, dazzling diamonds glitter, slit punch, silver brads,

rock n roll: i first stamped in pretty in pink and then rocked and rolled it in the rose red and added my dd glitter. dimentionals to pop up butterflies!

SU preview-window dressing set

I got my new stamp set from stampin' up and I wanted to play with it a bit. I wanted to use the cute little girt but I have noticed that everyone else uses her so I thought that I would do something different. I used the flowers. The only think is that I also used the dazzling diamonds on the flowers but you cant really see them all that well.

paper: pretty in pink, rose red, whisper white
ink: close to cocoa, choc. chip, going grey, rose red, pretty in pink, barely banana, so saffron
access: pretty in pink ribbon, SU silver eyelets, slit punch, dimentionals, dazzling diamond glitter
