Sweet Baby Card

I made this card a WHILE ago for a workshop but finally got a picture of it before I send it to my cousin who just had her first baby - a girl! I must admit I saw this idea on splitcoast - to use Forest Friends for baby cards. People are just so creative! Lovin' the pink and brown still - wonder if I'll ever stop?! Here's a close-up so you can see the texture! Oh, and in case I haven't mentioned it lately - I LOVE my Big Shot!

Medallion Thank You

I made this card for workshops in December - I thought it was a nice thank you that could be Christmas-y but wasn't necessarily. Simple and elegant. Gotta love that!

Christmas Joy

Okay, this is completely a CASE (Copy and Share everything) from Stampin' Up!'s monthly magazine. With my name being Joy I tend to have quite a bit of Christmas decorations and when I saw this, I knew I had to make it! I ended up leaving it pretty simple because I never could decide what to add. If you have ideas, I'd be happy to hear them! Since I never did get anything added to it, it's just hanging in my stampin' area. Maybe next year I'll get around to "completing" it with a hanger and everything!

Winter Love

I wanted to post some projects I made last year and never got around to posting! This one is perfect for the weather we're having right now. It's a hot chocolate holder perfect to give to a friend as a "happy"! The stamp set was featured in our winter mini and I'm sure we'll be seeing it again because it's just too darn cute!

Christmas Ornaments

Yes, Christmas is over but I had taken some pictures of Christmas ornaments I made and thought the pictures turned out pretty cool so I wanted to share! These ornaments are SUPER EASY to make and turn out SO nice! All you need is clear glass ornaments, stamp pad ink refills, and glitter!! What's fun is changing the color of the glitter but using the same ink creates different results to the possibilities are endless! Plus, the glitter and all is on the INSIDE so no mess when you pick it up and touch it!
The first picture is of all the ornaments together - I made them to give to my MOPS group as a Christmas present for each mom plus I showed them how to make them so they could do it themselves if they wanted to! Here's a close-up of the red ornaments. I used the same red ink just different kids of glitter so that's why you see differences!For the green, I did use three different kids of inks and a few different glitters so I got a different result A LOT!!
