The moment I saw the Gina K set My Cuppa Joe I knew I had to have it! I just love these coffee sets and this one was wonderful. My DH gave me $ for our anniversary so I could get what I wanted. So this was one of the first things I ordered.
I pulled it out when we got home tonight (from all our family visits) and inked it up. I picked up a few new Copics while we were out today so I used a new one to color the inside of the two coffee cups. Then I added LA to the middle cup to make it look like whipped cream. I know I should really add some ribbon some where but I'm not sure where I would put it. I used my MS edge punch on the red and I embossed the next layer with my CB embossing folder. I love the way this turned out!

I am still trying to figure out what I want to do for my Christmas cards this year. I bought this cute little reindeer stamp to use but I can't figure out what else to do. So I decided to use this stamp with Jen's Sketch this week. I wish I had a red flower or something to put on the bottom corner, but I didn't. I pulled out the SU DP from last year but I don't have enough of it left to use for my cards this year, oh well. I did color my stamped image with my copic markers and I think I like it. I don't know- I guess I'm a little wishy-washy today!

I made this card for the Cameo challenge during VSN. I used darker colors and pulled out my nesties to cut the ovals. I was not paying attention when I made this card. I stamped the snowflakes with my Versamark and then put clear EP on it instead of white! So I had to reheat it and add the white EP over the clear. It took a little longer that way and was really a pain! But at least I could save it- it wouldn't have looked the same with clear snowflakes!

Thankfully, the final VSN challenge was The Encore. So I had time to go back and change the paper that slides in the corset and add a few things I wanted to add. I used this for my anniversary card to my DH. Happy Anniversary honey! It has been a great 10 years! I know we have many more years to come!

This VSN challenge was You Can't Stop the Beat. I never knew what thumping was, but I guess I have done it before. You use markers to add more color to an inked image. You "thump" the color with the marker. I used a marker to thump a darker pink and a darker green on the inked image. I haven't used this set in quite some time and my goal for VSN was to pull out some stamps that need some love.

This challenge was to make a card what was inspired by an album cover. I was inspired by Secondhand Serenade's Album cover. I really love their song out now and when I saw this cover I knew exactly what to do!
I used wonderful wings and silver embossing powder for the butterfly. I also embossed the french script on the BG and then put black ink over it, which looked purple. It was weird but exactly what I was going for. I can't believe how much this one goes with the album.

I made this accordian card for my friend Kelly's birthday. When it opened up it made an excellent place to stick a gift card. I am loving this new fold and you can bet you will see more of these from me in the future. I use my Unity cupcake set and some paper piecing to make the cupcake match the DP. I also used my MS twill tape to tie it all together.

Here is another card I made for VSN. This was for the challenge "Inspired by Moulin Rouge." You had to look at the dresses from Moulin Rouge and have one of them inspire you to make a card. My inspiration was the gothic dress and this is my gothic skunk! lol Anyone who knows me is not surprised by my choice!

Now that my VSN challenge is posted I can show you one of the things I've been making the last few weeks. My challenge was "Frame Your Star." I used a picture of my niece that I took on her 2nd birthday. I covered a photo mat with DP. Then I added a few girly things to go along with that cute little face!
I'm not feeling well today. I've got the crud and I'm sure it is because of the crazy weather changes we have been having here. I hope I'm up and going again before Monday!

OK, I've been stamping but I can't share what I've done! Sorry! I'm getting ready for VSN. I'm a hostess for the first time and I'm excited about that.
So, instead of stamping projects I've made I'm showing you some pictures I've taken instead. The pink flowers are from clover that grows in my front yard. I've never seen clover with flowers before except in my yard!
The second photo is for the Heavy Metal photo challenge on SCS. I knew I had to take a picture of the rocket for this one. It fits the bill perfectly! It was a beautiful day today and the blue sky made a perfect backdrop for this one. I hope you like it!

I have decided what to do for my Halloween cards. I saw this Unity stamp set and loved it, Trick or Treat Peeps. I thought I could make it look like Chris and me. I picked up the DP at the LSS. One side of the paper is what you see on the top half of the card and the back of the paper is on the bottom. I really liked that I could just flip it over and the colors match. I stamped the image with Stazon and colored it with my Koh-i-noor pencils (which I love so much). I used black to pop the stamped image. I hope you like it!
