Youtube problems

I was having some youtube problems earlier, so my video two posts down may not have been working. It is all working now! Go check out this post and learn about stamping! :)

All that glitters

This glittery chandelier is so fun. I used a glue pen to fill in the chandelier and then sprinkled glitter all over it. I just love how it sparkles!

Learning about clear stamps!

Finally, I have a video for you!! In this video I show how clear / acrylic / photopolymer stamps work. They are so cool! I use a Papertrey Ink stamp set, and go through the process of making a card. I am still getting used to my camera and tripod, so the video isn't perfect, but I think it's fun! We got this gorillapod tripod. It is the coolest thing! You have to check it out. You can wrap it around just about anything! I also use one of those cute little flip cameras. I love those. If you want to be able to take decent video but don't want to invest in an expensive camera, check out the flip. Also, I fast forwarded a lot in the video. It takes me a lot longer to make a card!

Here's the video:




I have also posted the card I made in my shop! Go check it out!

Smile!

I hope this card makes you smile! Click here to see a video on how I cut out the word, "smile"!

Peonies!

These cards may have sold already, but if you like them, let me know and I will make more and reserve them for you!

This bird is out chirping a tune!

Flowers, mushrooms and butterflies!

I have a new card in the shop! I am hoping to work on birthday and thank you cards this next week. I am also hoping to post some more videos as I finally got a tripod! I hope you will have fun seeing some of the techniques I use!

I'm back!

I'm sorry I didn't post for a while. I was actually in Miami celebrating my grandfather's 80th birthday! My husband, Mike, and I had a great time with him. We got him a new recliner and took him out for a birthday lunch! I haven't updated my shop with new cards because of this trip and preparing for it, but I promise I will be updating soon. Here is the card that I made for my grandpa, who I call Bilo.



This card led this Cuban girl to a great idea. I need to make cards that have Spanish sentiments on them! There really aren't that many cute cards out there in Spanish, so, soon you will be seeing tarjetas in my shop!

To end this post, here is a slideshow of my grandfather blowing out his candles that makes me endlessly happy!

♥ ♥ Valentine's Day Sale ♥ ♥

I am having a sale at my etsy shop! It is getting close to Valentine's Day, and I thought it would be a perfect time to have a sale so people could buy their last minute Valentine's gifts! So if you love pie, bugs, ice cream, owls, flowers or blahs go check it out and tell your friends!

To go along with my Valentine's theme, here is a picture my husband and I took together while playing around with our new dSLR. We love our new Nikon D90! It's so fun! We are so excited that we even watched the "informative" DVD it came with. I hope that with this new camera I can start taking better pictures of my cards and everything else around me!

Four owls tell you to wish big!

Here is another new creation in my shop.



I love these bright colors and felt ribbon. This felt ribbon was such a cool find! I had to buy it in about six colors!

This whale spouts love!

Here is a recent addition to my etsy shop! I just love this adorable whale!



I love using lacquer on my cards. It gives such a cool shiny 3D effect. I used it here on the water coming out of the whale's spout, and I used it on my "sweetie pie" cards for the pie plate, so that it looks like a plate!

Also, if you ever see a card in my shop that has already sold that you like, just contact me, and I will try to make you a similar one!

You make my heart melt and blah blah blah

I have two new postings in my etsy shop! One is a fun six card set, and the other is a cute Valentine's card. I am so excited about them!

Here is a mosaic quick look:



I hope to get another video up here soon! Have a great night!

Scrabble = pendant?!

I found this great etsy seller, Home Studio. They sell the cutest pendants made from Scrabble letters! Adorable! I love scrabble, and I love necklaces, so this is a perfect fit!

Here is the pendant that I bought:



The back is a letter "B". Three points! Heck yeah!

Hopefully I will continue to highlight etsy sellers that I like. Remember to buy handmade! :)
