Mini clear cans...

I wanted to make something for the ladies today...
we are playing our UH six-a-side soccer tournament today.
it's an all day I wanted to say "thank you" as well as "happy girl's day"! I have 9 ladies playing, so 9 cute little clear pails I made =) I got the clear pails when they were on sale at Ben Franklin. they are the cutest thing!
I got to use my sizzix hello kitty...I used DP for the band and the outfit and bow for each HK! I put heart bling in their bows and stickles for their hearts.
I wanted to say thank you for I stamped my thank you stamp, blinged the flower and also use my japanese girl doll I colored them to match each pail...and blinged them too! they are popped up from the top (hard to see). I used my 1 1/4" circle and scallop punch from SU.
here's what the single can looks like...
I also got some ribbon to tie on and then I printed out the Happy Girl's Day on cardstock and then stamped it with sakura flowers and punched it with the curly label punch.
here's the top up close...
filled them with hard candy that the ladies can enjoy!
these are the different colors I used for each pail...
made 2 of each except for the blue...there's only 1!

hope everyone will have a good weekend...
girls in Hawaii...please don't blow away =)

Card Swap for February...

so I made my card for Teri's one card swap for the month of February...this is fun because you don't have to worry about sending "extras" and you can concentrate on giving a really detailed and special card.
here I made a shaker box with the new hello kitty sizzix...isn't she cute?! I used the sizzix embossing folder, the new border punch from SU and a clear stamp sentiment. I added ribbon from Papertrey Ink...raspberry fizz and I used Imaginisce DP. I used bling for her bow and her purse.
here's a close up of the shaker box...
I used 2 shades of pink for the microbeads.
I hope my partner liked her card!
I will be posting her's soon =)

hope you are having a great weekend!

Happy 18th Birthday...

here's a couple birthday cards I made for a special someone...he turned 18 yrs old! I thought I'd have to make a card that fitted that event. I wanted it to be special and unique. he loves the color red, so I tried to stick with that to be the main color.I finally got a chance to use my new stamp set...
Simple Friendship by SU.
I fell in love with the butterflies, flowers and swirls!
I used some DP, chocolate chip and pink pirouette cardstock.
I had to use some dazzling diamonds on the butterflies and I used heart bling for the middles of the flowers. I used the happy birthday sentiment from all's another card...I made it into a shaker box!
I used red micro beads from Cute Stuff and I added some chunky clear glitter. I used the 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle punches and the scallop punches from SU. I also used the wow flowers stamp set for the sentiment. I used red bling in the middle. I used real red and close to cocoa cardstock.
and some DP from my stash.
here you can see it up closer.
I used the cupcake mice stamp from Leigh's wishing well.
colored with my copics!

thanks for stopping by today.

Gingersnap...Hey Cupid!

I finally used my new C C design stamps...Gingersnap...Hey Cupid! I bought from Tamikos a little while ago. I thought I'd better hurry up because Valentine's will be here and then gone before you know it! so I was looking through my stash and found these little note cards w/ envelopes (2 3/4" x 4")...I was so happy! so I made a total of 6 cards.I used the two designs...this little angel is on a cloud. this angel is on a mushroom...
I used DP from Imaginisce, of course colored with my copics...I used stickles and dazzling diamonds to give it a sparkle! I think that this set is so cute! I wanted to make the cards simple yet for these two cards shown separately, I cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. I had a fun time making them!
hope everyone is having a fun time on this long weekend!
yes! Monday is President's day...I'm off!

Hello Kitty Cup Holders...

Happy Valentine's Day...
I had made these cup holders for my co-workers awhile ago...when Teri had her class on them. I wanted to give them something different. I finally got to give it to them. I used the cricut to make these cute HK w/ hearts =)here's one of the side views...I used the love bundle stamp set.
here's the other side view...
here's my hello kitty up close =)
I used a lot of different DP for each one. I love that SU has two-sided designer paper. I used one side for the sides and the inside of the cup holders and then used the other side to decorate the outside...front and back. I filled them with chocolates and other goodies. I also made them each a card...I'll be posting those tomorrow!
hope everyone is having a wonderful day =)

Birthday Princess Anya...

my daughter is going to a birthday party on Sunday...she's so excited to go...she gets to swim in a pool and hang out with some of her classmates. So of course I had to make another birthday card. I can't seem to get enough of the Anyas...and the Princess one seems just the right one to use for such an occasion.
here I used my oval nesties to frame her...I used some pretty DP and used some brown satin ribbon. I used cotton candy stickles for her wand, crown and dress.
I used my copics to color her.
it's amazing how well you can blend with these pens.
I am enjoying every moment I get a chance to color =)

have a good Friday the 13th!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Cheer Anya...

I just received my new Anya! Isn't she cute! I was debating on buying another one, but I thought that she was too cute to pass up. This is "Cheer Anya".
She looks so cheerful...I decided to make this card for a friend. I hope she likes it when she receives it in the mail =) I added dew drops, ribbon from Papertrey Ink, used my giga scallop circle punch and embossed it with cuttlebug. Also used some pretty flower DP.
here she is up close...I used orange stickles on her hair, light blue stickles for her pom poms, skirt & bows in her hair. Of course I used my copics to color her. I loved how she turned out!

thanks for stopping by today and hope your week went well.
only one more day!

Thank you cards...

I wanted to make my thank you cards special...I wanted my friends to know that I am truly blessed to have them in my life and that I am so honored to have them all come out and help me celebrate my birthday. so each card is one of a kind! If you know me well enough, I don't like to make more than one card of the same thing.
I made a total of seven cards tonight before heading off to my soccer game. I was going to see most of the girls and 2 guys there tonight, so I wanted to make sure I get it to them.
this anya mermaid was for Michelle...yes, my BFF!
this geisha anya went to KeriAnne...
Jenn received this angel anya...
I gave this princess anya to Lyana...
here's a Stylish Tilda for Dana...
the last one I just made tonight after I came home from my game. I will be seeing Sharon tomorrow for dinner, so I wanted to give her, her thank you card too. this one is called the standing fall Tilda. I'm happy with how all these cards turned out!
I used the cowboy Ian for Chris and the quarterback Ian for Colin (not posted separately) but it's in the group of cards.
I used all my copics...which is really growing now! I enjoy myself when I color the stamps. it really does make a difference...amazing!

thanks for stopping by today.
enjoy the's half way gone!
take care =)

hello kitty checkbook cover and matching pen...
the angel anya...paper pieced her dress and bow, used stickles for her hair and wings and added some dazzling diamonds to her wings and halo...then I added her to the coaster post-it notes. The DP is from American Craft...ribbon bought at Ben Franklin.
