Embossed Blossoms

Goodness, it's been raining off and on all day steady.  Makes me very thankful for our little warm home.  And I thought this would be the perfect card to showcase on such a day.  I made it a couple days ago, but just didn't get a chance blog about it.  It really came together quickly and I like how the two colors contrast.   I sponged the embossed paper and then just used the stampin up Mixed Bunch to stamp the flower image, I then layered it and put an embellishment in the center, and added some yellow twine.

We celebrated my Son's 23rd birthday, and I made homemade egg rolls for him for the first time ever.  They actually turned out really yummy, huge happy surprise.   
The card I made for my son you can see here at: Xavier's Birthday Card  I totally had him in mind while making it.  He has loved trains since he was a toddler, and I'm sure the fact we have lived next to tracks his whole life has a lot to do with it.  Now we live next to a very active train yard. 
 I also made these whopper bars for him.  Which were a hit with the kiddos since they were young, so it was nice to bring out that recipe again for them.  

Overall just a busy week. 
 Hope you are all doing well. 
Thank you for stopping by.

Oriental Art

I really like how this card turned out.   I love the Oriental Artistic flare of the words and the fan.  I think it works so well on red with a black border.  If I had gold I probably would have used that too, since I highlighted a section of the fan in a gold sparkly wink of stella pen.  I used a lattice die to cut the border on the side.  
Thank you for stopping by.

Foxy Banners

This is not the idea I had in in mind when I started this card, but nevertheless I like the finished product.  I knew I wanted to do a Thank you with the stampin up Banner Banter set.  I have also noticed that people use twine or ribbon to make it look like the little banners are hanging, so that is what I chose to do too.  I used the fox from a Lawn Fawn set and the grass die from lawn fawn.  I also dropped some liquid pearls on the flowers embossed in the background.  Overall not to shabby. I hope the lady I will be sending it off to likes it as well.  
Thank you so much for stopping by.  
Have a blessed Day.

Pumpkin Embossed Card

I truly am a summer person at .  I Love it!  But I'm not ashamed to admit I enjoy fall, the colors, the smells, the football, the baking (wait I do that all year anyways) haha.. but also just the decorating of the seasons.  So no surprise when I pulled out this embossing folder to play with.  I brayered the orange on the negative side of the folder and ran it through the big shot, and that is what gave me that neat look.  I also like the copper color paper behind the orange.    A few little brads and some ribbon 
make this card complete.  

Thank you for stopping by.

 I have made a few cards the past few days, but really haven't had much of a chance to blog about them, I make them and then set them aside.  I usually need to really focus when I type my blog up, but apparently that's not an option at our house lately.   Right now the Sunday night football game is on, our daughter popped over for a visit, and of course as mama's know you want to feed your kids when they come, so I warmed up lasagna for her, and then my son and his girlfriend, went to the bike park for awhile.  My son is a BMX biker, and rides every day.  His goal is to go pro.  I'm sure he will do it.  So needless to say, I'm trying to focus to get my SCS card out today.  I don't have nearly enough moose stamps.  haha  I think I only have two, and for someone that loves moose that is not nearly enough.  I don't think my husband sees it quite the same way.    This set is from Lawn Fawn.  I also used two other sets to make this card, and being they are in the other room, I can't remember the names off hand, but if you are very interested in knowing just leave me a comment and I'll be sure to answer you. 

  I also want to share the picture I took today of that cute little bird.

Hello friends, today I decided to practice a few elements on this card.  So I pulled out my brayer and glossy paper for the background and then I added some more character/charm with the bokeh technique.    I used a mason jar stamped on clear paper and then filled it full of crayons that I had stamped using a variety of colors, and then cut out.  Of course a few sequins always make things sparkle.  

 I added one more picture, just because I have a hard time choosing which one photographed better. 

I'm going to enter this card in the Happy Color challenge at:  Sunday Stamps Blog

I would love to have you follow my blog.  My goal is to get to 50 followers before my year anniversary in Oct.  You can also follow my facebook page at: Pj's Projects

Mason Jar filled with Cupcake Kisses

As promised here is the mason jar filled with cute cupcakes, which all have a Hershey kiss in them.  I got this lovely idea from a fellow blogger. 
I love how well these little tents fit the kiss perfectly, helps them hold their shape.  So I made this jar for our Birthday Gal, and we made 21 of them for her special day, oddly enough only 20 fit nicely in the jar so I used the tent base for the big cupcake on top and placed that extra one there.  It all worked out lovely.  
Here is a picture of my English Springer Spaniel.. he is a hunting dog by breed, but he's really just my pal.  We call him HP.  Which stands for many things.  His official name is Sir Hunter.  
Hope you have a fabulous Day.
Thank you for stopping by.
