So I’ve decided to change blogs because I realized that using Snadypooh might not be the best name for a stamping blog. My new blog is Sandy’s Stamp N’ Stuff. Please visit my new blog as I won’t be adding new posts to this blog anymore.

Thanks!!

Oh my I’m cutting it close!! I got home, walked the dog and tried to whip up a card quickly. I’m not ecstatic about my card.. Looked way better in my head when I was thinking about it but there’s no time to make any changes now!  So to visit the color inspiration, go to Kristina’s Blog. There are some AMAZING cards on there. Especially those ones where people actually knitted!!

Upsy Daisy and Happiness Always Cards

•December 7, 2008 • 1 Comment

I made these two cards before Kristina’s color challenge but just haven’t had the time to post them yet.

Happiness Always Card
Happiness Always Card

This main card is Blue Bayou from last year’s in color and the flowers are stamped with regal rose and rose red with so saffron for the center of flowers. The strip of green is old olive stamped with the scandinavian wheel from the holiday mini and embossed with clear powder. I absolutely love love love that mini wheel. The ribbon is also retired and is last year’s soft sky double stitched ribbon.

I’m trying really hard to use up old retired colors.

Now for the second card:

 

Upsy Daisy Card

Upsy Daisy Card

This card was inspired by my upline Carolyn. She made this card at her open house with the Big Shot premier. I don’t remember if she used tango tangerine or only orange but again, I was trying to use up old retired stock so the main card is wild wasabi. I inked up the main image with orchid opulence. Then went through and used a green (I don’t remember which one anymore) marker for the flower stems. I took a sponge dauber for the edges of the top note and used the 2-way glue pen to add some dazzling diamond glitter. The back piece is designer paper from last year’s level 1 hostess pack.  Finished it off with some white taffeta ribbon.

Brought some cards in to work and a coworker bought 7 cards! I’ve only been selling them for $3 a card though.  Enjoy!

 

 

 

Kwerner Inspiration Challenge #33

Color Inspiration #33

I’ve been following Kristina Werner’s Blog for some time now and have FINALLY been able to take part in a color challenge. I really thought I’d have a hard time putting these colors together. I had some left over chocolate chip cardstock strips which I had embossed with clear with the new scandinavian roller for Christmas cards. Pulled from an old design I used to make thank you cards and tested out water color paper with my aqua painter for the first time and I absolutely LOVE it. Here’s what I came up with.

Color Inspiration #33

I would’ve totally loved to take a brighter photo but it’s 12:20 in the morning and I’ve got to shower still and get ready for bed for yet another day of work tomorrow and we all know if I procrastinate, I’ll never get this entry in! So please excuse the darkish photo and I know the “thinking of you” looks pinkish but it’s actually stamped in pumpkin pie and yes… I did stamp it crooked and I’m still kicking myself for it. G’nite!

11 Christmas Card Packs DONE!!!

•November 30, 2008 • 2 Comments

OMG I cannot believe that I have FINALLY finished all the Christmas card packs that people ordered. So lets recap. A total of 10 people wanted a pack. I made 11 just to have one extra and Jamie’s dad came over and ended up wanting a pack as well. So that’s 11 packs, 12 including my sample cards. So that’s 144 Christmas cards I’ve made!! All I have left to say is…. (probably) never again.

Almost finished.

Almost finished.

 

 

FINISHED!!
