I Wanna Be A Princess!

Hello my fellow crazy crafters!  Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made for my friends birthday!  I recently just received my first order from Kraftin Kimmie and I had to put one of the stamps to use!  I absolutely LOVE these princess stamps!  I am sure every little girl has dreamed of being a princess!

For this card I used Cinderella.  I colored her using my Copics and then I used my Glitter Ritz to glam her up!  Look at how fabulously she sparkles.  For those of you who have yet to try Glitter Ritz I highly recommend it.  It is a very fine glitter that once applied does not come off your project and almost has a suede like feel to it.  You can probably pick some up at your local scrapbook store.  The paper is all from Stampin Up and I cut out Cinderella using my curved rectangles nestie.  I added some crochet ribbon and the butterflies are made using my beautiful wings embosslit.  The flower was made using my sizzlet from Stampin Up.  On the inside I stamped the sentiment "It's all about the shoes!" which comes with the Cinderella stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a peek!

Stampalicious Red and Pink!

This weeks challenge over on the Totally Stampalicious Blog is to create a card using the color combo Red and Pink!  These are some of my favorite colors so I had a lot of fun with this challenge!  

I know, I know.... I am a little behind in getting my card ready but honestly I have a great excuse!  Instead of uploading my card yesterday I went hiking with my mom and my friend in the beautiful Maligne Canyon!  Maligne Canyon is located in Jasper, Alberta!  I have gone there plenty of times during the warmer months but I had never thought of a winter hike and let me tell you it is absolutely spectacular!

Check out this picture of us standing in front of the frozen waterfall!  I'm on the left with my fancy pink snowpants, my mom is in the middle and my friend Susie is on the right.

Well, now that you know why I'm late getting my card uploaded!

For the challenge this week I used our Attitude Ruby stamp set for this card!  I colored her with copics, embossed the white background with my Crafts Too Daisy Flourish folder, used nesties for the ovals and a punch from my lss to create the flower border.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you will take the time to head on over to our Totally Stampalicious Blog to play in some of our challenges!

I want to give a big THANK YOU to artist Jodie Mackrell for her wonderful line of Bugaboos and for creating us this special Stampalicious Scarlette!

Anyways, I decided to pull out my Cricut and SCAL program to make this fabulous door hanger.  It is perfect for hanging on my craft room door.  The sentiment says...Paper - $896, Markers and ink - $1194, Stamps - $6872, Handmade card...PRICELESS!  You should have seen my husband shake his head when he saw my creation.  He said that the worst part is, it's true!
