COFFEE... I just love the smell of coffee. Don't you think that it always smells better than it tastes? I still drink it though:) Ever since I got pregnant I have not been drinking any:( Oh, don't get me wrong I still treat myself every once and a while. I'm actually on a Chai Tea Latte kick, they are really good!
Today's post is a card for my sister-in-laws birthday, which was last weekend. October and November is proving to be a busy birthday card making two months! My son's is this next weekend then my mother-in-law. October was a couple of my grandma's:) Well anyways on to the card. She really likes coffee so I decided to use MFT's Hot Stuff. I participated in this weeks sketch challenge at SCS:) The cs is DCWV and the dp is Cosmo Cricket. I used my watercolor pencils and blended the mugs and then popped them up. The ribbon is from the dollar bin at Michael's.
Stop by My Little Stamp Shack to shop, shop, shop! Great deals everywhere!
Also a big BLOG CANDY ALERT! Suzanne over at Scrap Bitz is giving away some great blog candy, make sure to stop by and check it out.
Hope everyone had a good Halloween. We sure did. My son dressed up as a UPS man:) What can brown do for you? He was very cute! Although he would not leave his hat on.
I made this card for my great grandma, she turned 93 last week! The stamp is Sweet Moments by Hero Arts. I stamped it on white cs and used watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I used my Liquid Applique for the frosting and the cherry has some Stickles for some glitz. The layout is for the Beate's weekend sketch challenge, yeah I finally did one, just a little late in posting it:) All paper is SU! and the decorative punch is Martha Stewart. Hope you all like it.

Some good news, I have a new niece!!!! She was born September 8th at 10:49pm. She weighed 8lbs 11oz, big girl! There was some complications when she was first born, so she is in the NIC unit at the hospital. She is COMPLETELY okay now, they just want to monitor her a little longer. She had a pin size hole in her lung which is believed to have already closed on it's own now, thank God! Her name is Alyssa Lynn and I have yet to see a picture. Everyone's cell phones are dead, go figure and no one has a laptop. Arggggh! Patience right:)
For today I am posting a card I made for a friend/ co-worker of mine. Her birthday is this week, so I wanted to give her something sweet:) I used the stamp Sweet Moments from Hero Arts and colored it in with my Copics. I used Liquid Applique for the whipped cream and used a heating tool to make it fluff:) I used two different Cuttlebug folders for the background to give some texture. A little ribbon and voila a sweet card!
Last little note we are getting new items in every week so keep checking. Remember if there is something you don't see, just let me know and I can order it for you!
Thanks for stopping by and as always Happy Stamping!

For today's post I had made these onesies for my new niece-to-be! She should be here any day and we can't wait to meet her. I used VersaCraft ink to stamp these images on the onesies. I then set the ink with a hot iron and VOILA one of a kind onesie! What do you think? I think she'll look absolutely adorable in them. I used a variety of stamps from CTMH, Fiskars, and Hero Arts.

Another blue sky day in Northern California:) So glad the smoke has lifted for the most part. Today's post I am sharing some more special things I did for my sister-in-laws shower this past weekend. I made her shower favors using a stamp that I first saw on Katie's blog... thanks Katie:) They are from Clear Dollar Stamps and are just perfect for what I wanted to do. The set is called Too Sweet. I used Avery labels and stamped two of the label designs with orange and green inks and then in the middle stamped "It's a girl" in the area provided. Then wrapped these labels around yummy Hershey nuggets. I placed four nuggets in 4X6 baggies, 50 of them! For the top part of the favor I used my Cricut machine and my Accent Essentials cartridge to cut out ovals and scalloped circles. I printed the sentiment out on my computer. I folded the ovals in half, stapled them to the bag and popped up the scalloped circles and voila party favors:)
So for all of you that can bake and decorate yummy treats I was always wanting to give it a try so I did! I made a monkey cake using a Wilton cake mold... cheating a little:) But I decorated the whole thing myself, little stars, leaves, everything:) And I loved the way it turned out. It took me about 5 hours but was worth it! Man my hand hurt afterwards though, I give cake decorators a lot of credit, WOW! What do you think, you like?
Last but not least!!!! NEW HERO ARTS WILL BE HERE SOON! My Little Stamp Shack will be getting a lot of new product in for the winter season. I know, Christmas is right around the corner, CRAZY! So to get ready for new product we are having a SALE for one week!!!! Get 20% off your entire order until July 29th. Spread the word:) See website for details.
Okay, until next time have a great day and Happy Stamping!

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!
My next card I made for my dad. He has a tenant that just lost her mom so he asked me to make a sympathy card to give to her.I used SU! Fall Flowers DP. For the sentiment I used MSE! Sympathy Cards Sentimental Rubz. I just love those Rubz, they are so easy to use and you have a instant sentiment that looks great. The flower is by Heidi Swapp. It was pink, but I painted it with my Making Memories light blue paint, let it dry and then used my CTMH liquid glass (I got from my good friend Kat) and covered with glitter. After letting that dry for quite some time I added a white foam flower by Petaloo that I got over at PSB and attached it with a black brad. I really like the way it turned out. I need to use altered chipboard more often! It really adds to a project. Again finishing the card off with some white ribbon. Using the MSE! Rubz again, the inside of the card reads:
In the picture it looks crooked but it's not on the actual card:) I'm not the best photographer!
I may post later today, I'm working on another photo album for someone:)
Have a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!

For the cover using cardstock I covered a piece of 9 1/2 x 11 inch cardboard with Modge Podge and adhered the cardstock. I folded it under the corners like wrapping a present. I then cut a piece of same color of cardstock for the inside of the cover and adhered it with Modge Podge. I then let it dry. I made the back cover the same way. Once dry I Modge Podged the entire cover front and back with a good amount of Modge Podge to give it a glossy look. After letting that dry for several hours, I punched three holes using my Crop-a-dile, to line up with the page inserts. To decorate the front cover I used a 2 inch white ribbon and wrapped it just like you would a present and tied it in a bow. I used glue dots to make it stay nice and pretty:) I used book rings to hold the book together and tied some 1/2 inch white ribbon on each ring for an added touch. The first page reads who it's for, the date and who it's from in a pretty font from my computer:) The inside holds 25 top loading scrapbook pages for her to place her pictures from her shower and to decorate as she wants. You can't have a gift without a greeting card! So I made a 5 x 5 inch card mimicking the album. The front of the card reads "it's a shower for you". The inside reads "a special day for you". I stamped both using my CTMH Special Days set. I made an envelope using matching cardstock and to close it I included a white bow to keep it shut:)Hope everyone has had a good week:) And has a even better weekend!
