Retired Goodness

I'm on a mission to use up some of my stash without purchasing more (a mission I'm failing dreadfully) but this sweet and simple goodie is brought to you via retire SU merchandise ;)

Vintage & Stencils!

We were challenged to make something in a vintage venue, I think SU! stencils are a great way to do that! Lovely isn't it?

Pink Witch for Breast Cancer

This image and saying just make me smile! I participated in a whole slew of challenges to raise awareness of breast cancer, and I got to use some of my non-SU! items to play along ;)

More Butterflies!

Can you tell that cupcakes and butterflies are some of my favorite thing? LOL maybe I need to make a cupcake with a butterfly on it! This technique is called "embedded embossing" and it is wonderfully easy to do!!!!

Old Time Christmas

I love this stamp, but find I'm having a hard time using it! This is all colored with SU markers and the white gel pen, kind of labor intensive!

More Cupcakes

Again the embossing folder is not SU! but everything else is. My family got me this embossing folder for Christmas a couple of years ago, I don't use it much but again it was a gift!

Keep Calm

Cupcakes fix everything! I colored the cupcake with alcohol makers and I computer generated the saying, but everything else is SU!

This Makes Me Peaceful

I won this StampScapes set at the Michigan Mingle last year! I normally only buy Stampin' Up! and I will continue to do that, but I also won't look a gift horse in the month ;) I can honestly say that everything but the stamp is SU! LOL

Snowflake in Reverse

This is the reverse image left when cutting out the snowflakes in the Northern Frost strip die, I simply sponged color around it and layered it over white.

MonoChromatic Friends

I'm trying to get myself to love Poppy Parade, it's slowly growning on me, but it's still not my first to reach for ;) However, I do think the SB page turned into a card came out quite nicely!
