Amber Ink- Last Projects...

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, or Holiday with your friends and families. I am posting the last of my Amber Ink projects today, I am a bit late! I apologize for the long delay in between posts and for being late with my design team projects, this month has not gone as I had hoped, or planned it would. Unfortunately my Dad was in the hospital a couple of times this month. He ended up having a surgery, and long story short, is on the mend and going to be alright. Thank goodness! So I had dropped everything and ran off to be with my folks. When I came home it took much longer to get back on track than I thought, and then there was Christmas in the mix too. Can I just say, I am so looking forward to the New Year!! :) So here are my last Amber Ink projects, I used several of their Digi Papers, so fun! I love that they come in different shades, from bold to very soft in the same design, and so many colors to choose from! This card was actually for the Cup Cake Inspiration Challenge #141, check it out, as I said, I am late, but there is still a little time if you want to join in the fun!! The challenge will be open until Jan.7th!!

For this card I also used some of my "Twas" card stock from A Muse Studio, love that paper!! I really thought I had a stamp that said " Santa, I can explain...", if I did I couldn't find it, and I was loo lazy to try and print it, so I found "Bah Humbug", and thought that would work. I lam crazy about these Love Bunnies from Amber Ink!!
And now after months of Christmas, how about a change of pace!? This card could be for Valentine's Day, or just because. Inside it reads "I Love You!" I used more of Amber Ink's wonderful digi papers,don't you just love those colors!?I paired the digi papers with some shimmery pink card , stock from a muse, sweet!! How about that adorable owl!? My daughter is all about owls right now, she just loves them, so this card may just find it's way into her bag one day soon, just because. :)
Thank you so much to everyone at Amber Ink for inviting me to be part of this fun experience! Tomorrow I pass my torch to a very talented friend, can't wait to see what she will do this next month!! Stay tuned....

Amber Ink- Snowflake Lace

Today I wanted to share a card I made using Amber Ink Digi Paper! I have very limited experience using digi papers, so it was really fun to play, and see what I could come up with. I really liked this paper called Snowflake Lace, this one is the "tiny" one. I printed it up on some shimmer paper, just to see what would happen, lovely!! The blue area has a subtle shimmer and the snowflakes really shimmer, so fun! So pretty in fact, I wanted it to be the "star" on my card front. I used some corrugated card board, left over from another project to frame this snowflake that I cut using several dies I have. I love snowflake dies and punches, so fun to mix and match all the different ones I have collected! But my lovely snowflake seemed a little dull next to this lovely shimmery paper, so I added a rhinestone to the center. Then a few more to the different layers, then a few more, let's just say I don't think I have ever used this many rhinestones on one card before! But I love how it turned out! I added a little ribbon and a tag with a holiday sentiment to finish it off.

What do you think?

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Just a quick post today to share another adorable image from Whimsy and Stars Studio, this one is called Winter Friends. So cute! I paired this little cutie with some of my A Muse Studio papers, dies, and stamps. I have been working on a project that uses a bunch of Mabelle's sweet Christmas images, I can't wait to share with you, but I have to put the finishing touches on it first. :)
Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend, I appreciate you stopping by!! :)

A Muse Studio Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to another A Muse Studio Blog Hop!!
If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Sheila's blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Samantha's blog until you come to my blog.
 Today I have a wonderful Gift Card, Card Holder to share with you. All my supplies are from A Muse Studio unless noted. I used my Large Mitten die to create a fold over mitten for the front of my card. I added the fun stripe texture with my Snowflake/Candy Cane Stripe Impression Plate, then I sanded the bermuda card stock so the white core shows through. I added some of our wonderful felt to the cuff and also die cut a snowflake with the Snowflake Trio Die, I also added a bermuda button  and some punched leaves( not A Muse) to the cuff, just for fun!
 Inside the fold over mitten, I added a pocket for a gift card and sentiment, which leaves lots of room inside for Holiday wishes! I hope that you will join in this fun hop and check out all the other blogs that are participating. Now on to your next stop by Angie's Blog
Hope that you are having a fabulous day, thanks for stopping by!.

Whimsey and Stars Christmas

Today I have another card to share with you, for this one I used a sweet image from Mabelle at Whimsy and Stars Studio. I love her designs so much, they always make me feel happy! This little sweetie is called Jolly Christmas and can be found HERE. I used one of my all time favorite embossing folders with snowflakes, to create the back ground paper. I am really enjoying my embossing folders and plates again since I am using A Muse Studio card stock. It comes in so many lovely colors, and I really like that I can sand it and get the white showing through so easily!
Mabelle has a new digi stamp out today! Isn't she adorable?! She can be found HERE! I can't wait to print her up and color her, wouldn't she make a lovely ornament?!
I will be back soon with a sample using her!! That is if all goes according to my plan, not much has done that lately! :)

Hope that you are having a wonderful day today, can you believe it is already December 1st!? Yikes!!
Thanks for stopping by!
