Another Kitty sample

Hi everyone! Here's the other kitty card that I said I would post but didn't the other day. Sorry but I've been busy as usual.
Here's the deets: Sizzix Princess Hello Kitty die, Lasting Impressions cs, SU red cs, Fiskars punch, Worldwin silver foil cs, red glitter, and Offray ribbon. This is another easy die to layer. The sample is at the store and looks better IRL.
See you on Saturday for our MITI with Jean and because it's Scrap Pink day, I'll have a card to make too.

Hello Kitty

I worked on a card sample yesterday and forgot to post it. Here's a sample of one of the Hello Kitty dies that we just received in the store.It was quite easy and I made this in less than half an hour. That's fast for me since I normally spend hours working on a card. Sorry it's a little crooked but there was very little light in my room and this was the best angle to take the photo. Can you tell I was jumping on the bed? The background used is the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. I think I used this on just about everything I make these days. I put glitter in the flower and Hero Arts gemstones and a Hero Arts flower.
Have you ever been to Yogurtland? Well, we had never heard of it and one of our customers Barbie (thanks so much Barbie!) gave us a giftcard the other day and we decided to stop by for an evening dessert. OMG! You have got to go there if you've never been there and love to eat ice cream. You just take a container and fill it with the yogurt flavors that you like and pour toppings all over it. And this place is just busy with people waiting in line. It's right across the University of Hawaii.
Anyways, there are a bunch of dies that came in so hope you get a chance to stop by the store. Have a great weekend!

Couple samples and more shipments in the store

Hi everyone! I forgot to post this cute little box that I made with a new Sizzix Halloween die. I can't remember the name of the die but it's a MAMBI die.
You can't really see it but the pumpkin face is in black glitter. The layering on this die was actually real easy.
Here's a Christmas card that I made using the new snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

And the snowflake die is also from Cuttlbug. First you cut it then you emboss it. I used Hero Arts bling on the snowflake.
Also, we received a shipment of Hello Kitty dies today and it's so pink and cute! Call the store if there is a certain die that you want. Have a great weekend!!!

Sizzix Shipment

We just received a shipment today. Hope you can stop by the store to see all the new Christmas dies.
Have a great weekend!!!

A challenge

Over the weekend, my husband brought home this Cuttlebug embossing folder and asked me to make something out of it. It is the one called bird call and not one that I would actually pick out myself. So he challenged me and here is what I came up with.
Here is a closer up of the card. It actually came out better than I thought it would. The card is a 4 x 4 sized card. I rubbed my VersaMark inkpad over the bird just to darken it a little. Then I put stickles glitter glue over the bird. You can see the glitter better in this photo. The green cs is sanded.
The details: Cuttlebug embossing folder bird call, DCWV green (whitecore) cs, Fiskars border punch, Hero Arts stamp, Hero Arts gemstones, red SU cs, pink Bazzill cs and pink Offray ribbon.
I'll leave the sample at the store so you can see it.
Also, Hero Arts stamps and Sizzix dies came in the store today.
Have a great evening!

Here are a couple cards that I made using the new Penny Black clear stamp set, Trick or Treat. It's a cute little giftcard holder.The deets: Cuttlebug spiderweb embossing folder, Penny Black clear stamp set - Trick or Treat, Stickles glitter glue, Spellbinders nesties classic circles in small and large, and silk ribbon.
This 2nd card is from the same stamp set. I messed up on the coloring so I tried to cover it up with glitter but it turned out worst. Here's the deets:
Sizzix texturz plate #6, Penny Black clear stamp set - Trick or Treat, Cuttlebug bubbles embossing folder, Spellbinders nesties classic circles small and large, Stickles glitter glue and May Arts ribbon.
Have a great weekend and be crafty!

A quick and easy card

It's been awhile since I last posted a card sample. Today, I took out all the Cuttlebug embossing folders that were sitting in my package and pulled out this Christmas tree folder. I used gold metallic cardstock to emboss the tree. It was quick and easy, just layering it with white and black cardstock. Topping it with a red satin ribbon bow and red bling from Hero Arts. It really looks better IRL. I took the photo in the late afternoon and there wasn't much sun in the room. I'll leave the sample at the store so you can see it. Have a great evening everyone!
