So what has been happening? .. stay tuned...

Well  I have been up to ... NOTHING! I cannot get motivated to stamp.. could be that I have been sick the past few days.. but still I want to stamp.. just cant muster up the "get up and go" mode.. I got some new inks and stamps in the mail.. thought that would help but .. NOPE~ nothing.. guess I will try again next week.. I have to get some done.. im in a swap~ lol.. thank goodness it not due for a couple months.. :)
When I DO get some mojo goin on.. I will have them done in enough time and they will hopefully be beautiful :)  I know what I want them to look like in my head.. just have to get it down on the cardstock :)

My son signed up on his OWN for Saturday school.. OMG shocked me.. but Im proud of him for putting forth the effort to get some extra credit in on his studies :) YAY for you my son! ..

(now if his mom can get off the buttocks and do some of what she needs to do.. the world will be a better place~ Atleast mine will )  LMAO..

Have a good night everyone.. Im off to do what I do best.. Catch some TV time~ lol.. criminal minds here i come!

STAMPSMITH ATC's that I have made

Here are some STAMPSMITH ATC's I have made.. I love Stampsmith stamps.. Estelle has a wonderful selection to choose from!
LOVE GONE WITH THE WIND.. well captured forever are Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable.. This one was one of my favs.. Burgandy bazzill cardstock, and some really cool ribbon that was burgandy and gold checked.. no clue where I got it from.. but was very fitting for this atc.. :)

TAC (the angel company) is one I made EASY to do..

This one was really easy to do .. I used TAC stamps (the angel company) .. I Have ALOT of those~... anyways, this one was done by using the sponge background in black, and  I added a touch of black / white check ribbon by using just a regular mini stapler! :)
This was a really simple card but was fun to do.. that is what matters .. right?
**sorry about the quality of photo.. my camera is not the greatest.. and has a mind of its own~:)

TAC (the angel company) cards made by me

Here is a few of the TAC stamped cards I have made... These were pretty simple and easy to do.. The first one I just used bazzill cardstock and some eyelet lace that belonged to my grandmother ( lil bit of history behind this one) .. I always loved to play in her sewing scraps.. well before she passed away a few years back I got a big ole' basket of them.. so I thought what a way to use them in my other passion.. STAMPING!
The inside has a beautiful sentiment: "Truely great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget" .. How fitting for this history lesson card .. :) Hope you enjoy~

Stampin Up Catalog arrived to me today...

Well I am so excited.. I got my SU catalog today... man it is full of so many new items.. (been about 3 years or so since I had a catty) and  I bet most of the stamps I have in my personal possession are now retired..not see any of them in the new catalog~ guess I have some catching up to do!

Saturday I am going to get my collection out of storage.. I have been going stir crazy with out them.. so now I can get back to the fun of my stamping passion!

stay tuned to see my creations!!!

Christmas Card by me.. The Angel company stamp set

This is another one that I have created.. The stamps used for this is from The Angel Company. I tore the cardstock and inked the edges for the distressed look.. Punched 2holes in side for the ribbon bow and the background papers were 2 different ones torn and added a metalic gold stripe (roll of sticky back unsure of exactly where I got this from) but I thought they turned out beautiful!
~ Enjoy~

Stampsmith ATC (artist trading card)

I love love Estelle's unmounted stamps.. I have a huge supply of those and have a few that are published in her gallery pages.  I do apologize for the small size uploaded..but not able to resize it just yet... this one was done for a Burgandy color Swap I was in.  It has 3 SU ribbons attached and a cute metal heart on the top corner.

This was a very simple technique to do.. I totally enjoyed making this!

Thanks for looking.. I will upload more to get my kiddos ready for school tomorrow!
