DP is ? sorry. Paper : very vanilla, brocade blue. Ink: Brocade blue, brown stazon, groovy guava. Accessories: Stickles, Brown satin ribbon(retired su) blue organdy is from Michaels crafts, topnote bigz die from SU.

snowflake foam favors

These were favors for the holiday Stamp a stack I just hosted this past weekend. We used Stampin ups new snowflake diecut and glittered them up and added silver cording to make them an ornament.
Fun and easy. We made about 36. We used spray adhesive to make it go even quicker. TFL Terry

My Holiday Stamp a Stack cards

I hosted a Holiday Stamp a Stack this past weekend. I hosted it with my upline friend and this year it was at my house so I designed two and she designed 3. We did 5 sets of 4 each. The card above I designed using the new Bigshot die and you can find it here We used Daubers with craft white behind the snowflake. The size of the card was different too, it measures 3 1/4 by 5 1/2. I bought the envelope from the dollar store but they sell them at Staples too. The snowflake is White foam. Fun!! We also used stampin up's glue stick to stick the foam to the card then we went over the snowflake with the glue and sprinkled it with some bling(dazzeling diamonds). I used the white taffeta ribbon and the ski slope designer paper from stampin ups holiday mini. The sentiment is from the to you and yours holiday set from stampin up. TFL
This card above was one that I designed. I got the cuttlebug dot idea from Rainy from splitcoast. She used lovely as a tree . THe house set is called to you and yours and it's in stampin ups main idea catalog. I was so excited to use basic grey in a christmas card. I used Basic Grey for both Paper and Ink. I put it with stampin ups in color for the year called Riding Hood Red. Again I used it for both INK and Paper. I used Whisper white card stock and for accessories I used the cuttlebug dots template for snow. Lastly the ribbon is the taffeta Riding Hood Red.

Coming up soon. I'll be uploading the door prizes( Hoiliday decorated Frames) I made for the door prizes. THe Stamp a stack was a success. It was a long two days but fun all the same. THanks for stopping by. Terry

Back from Disney

I'm Home!!!! We had a Great time. I have tons of pictures to go through but I do have some to share. I'm off from work this week too and it's going so fast. I'm preparing for a holiday Stamp a stack I'm hosting and I'm also making 25 christmas cards for a donation for a silent auction my DD's School is hosting. Plus I'm doing a craft fair the weekend after Thanksgiving. My brain has been all over the place so I've been stamping but nothing to upload yet.

I had a ton of fun but It's great to be home.
Up pic is of the children the first day at breakfast.

THis is my whole family that went. My Sisters and mine. We called it the CESMEHART's DISNEY VACATION. THis is at Epcot if you haven't guessed.

My Sister and I at Breakfast with Mickey and friends. Mini is so pretty isn't she.

Here's my husband Todd, Alexandra, my Daughter and myself the first day at the Magic Kingdom.

This was at Epcot at cartoon town I think.

On a sadder note when I got home and checked my e-mail I got some very sad news about a fellow stamper friend of mine. I want to post what I wrote in the splitcoaststamper forum.

Here's what I wrote:

Nancy is an avid Stamper. She is one of my upline Demonstrators. She hosts all our meetings and is so generous with everything. She always willing to help. She's been on a stampin up cruise and goes to the conventions and regionals alot. She loves making cards and I'm asking if it's in your heart to do, please send her a thinking of you card. I know it'll be a long time before she'll have a good smile on her face but I wanted to do something to make her feel good about herself. I know she'll be very honored to have the cards and display everything like she always does.

If you are interested please pm me for her address. Thank you in advance~

Slate Project for customer

Whew, I'm done.
This took a while but I'm thrilled with the out come. This is only the second time I've ever stamped on slate and this time it worked out a ton better. This time I sealed the slate with a clear finish then I painted it with an ivory acrylic paint. I still have to write the customers name on it and it's still needs to dry more. I used craft ink to stamp and colored the flowers in using a blender pen believe it or not. The blender pen worked Great. TFL

Stamps: live your dream, sunflower from michaels, Eastern Influences,
Paper: none
Ink: craft and acrylic
Accessories: blender pens, slate, clear sealer,
Techniques: stamping on slate,

Yeah I got to do the ic144

It's a day later then I wanted but I was just thrilled I found time. I did this for the ic144. Click image for larger version  Name: ledner3.jpg Views: 365 Size: 34.9 KB ID: 110652

My inspired picture was the top left picture. I borrowed this cute little owl from my sister and I had the background behind him from an expo I went to last year. Also I went with blush blossom just because I thought it flowed with the owl color. I got to use my new scallop punch from stampin up too. LOVE IT!!!! If you look close you'll see that I went over the eyes with a gel glaze pen to give them an embossed look. (It's hard to tell though at first. I used the dots template for the bg layer. It went with the owls eyes. I colored the owl using creamy caramel and blush blossom. The picture is soft and I wanted to keep my card soft too. This will be great to give someone for any kind of accomplishment. It would even be good for a new welcome card for a baby girl.

it was so nice to stamp again. I currently working on a custom slate piece. I really want to get to the featured stamper challenge today. Thak s for stopping by.

I'm still around

Hi Everyone,

I'm still around!!!

It's been a while since I posted and I just wanted to check in and let everybody know I'll be back stamping soon. Schools in and I'm thrilled. It was a great summer but I love routine like I'm sure most of us do so getting back into school will be great. Oh and I started a New Job too so I haven't been able to stamp anything lately. It's been 11 years since I've worked a real job so it's taking a little time for me to fit in the extras. (Like stamping) but I will so don't worry. (I'm addicted).

See you soon

sympathy for a friends family

I always get sad when I have to make these kind of cards but if you have to make them using these Verve stamp sets it'll work great. The Cross is the prettiest I've seen around. I just got a bunch of Julee's stamps. I'm looking forward to playing with them. This card is made from two of the Verve sets. ! is called Note of Prayer and the other is called Artful Elegance. You can find them here if you want to buy some for yourself.

This card got started because of the ic142 and this is the one it's based on. I changed the blue though to the sage because Verve sent me the pretty ribbon for an order thank you. How nice was that. My inspiration was the color and the the scroll leaves. I didn't use leaves but it's similar in my eyes.
