Easter Cards for the kiddos

I cannot believe Easter is almost here!!!  I have a great niece and nephew that live out on the West Coast and I am in Ohio, so I sent them each a little treat and a handmade card.  They are little tykes in Kindergarten and First Grade, my sweet angels Tristin and London.  Tristin loves Lego's and London loves Hello Kitty, two things that I adored when I was a kid also.  So, I had a great time making these cards.  I hope you like them.  Yes, Trisitn's name on the front is meant to be jumbled and not lined up evenly.  Here they are:

I cut out the rectangles on the lego card and used a 1/2" circle punch for the dots, and a white prismacolor pencil to add a little depth to them.  The letter stamps are from a retired Stampin Up set.

The hello Kitty card was made with some Sizzix Di-cuts, a Stampin Up trio flower punch, and a Spellbinder's label di-cut.  I forget which label, sorry.  

To my sweet little angels I just want to tell you once again, that even though I live so far away, I love you very much!!!!  Have a very happy and fun Easter and be good kids for your mom!!

Until next time..........Blessings,   Lisa

2 Cute Ink

Ok, it has been almost a year since I blogged about my crafting adventures.  I even forgot how to use blogger it has been so long.  I have been super busy trying to get a new bachelors degree, yes I have one already, but have not been able to find a job using it for years.  So, I am trying a new field.  I have less than a year to go to earn a degree in Database Administration.  Yay!  I can hardly wait!

In my spare time, of course i have been crafting.  I have also been dabbling with some new company's' stamps.  Today I bring a baby gift card using a digital image from 2 Cute Ink.  Just click on their name and you can see their blog and store.  Her images are way too cute for words.  So without any further delays, here is my card:

I am not 100% sure if she still has this image available, but she has a Facebook page and if you want an image that she does not have in her store, ask her to put it there, maybe she will do that for you.

Well, that is all for today.  Please come back and tell your friends about my blog, I am afraid that my long absence has taken away a few of my followers and that makes me sad.  I have quite a stash of new cards made just waiting to be posted though, so I will be back!!!!!!!!!

P.S.  Did you know that the word "Facebook" is in the spell check dictionary on blogger?  LOL, I have been away too long, that shocked the bazoodles out of me.

Until next time.............Blessings,  Lisa

Happy Valentine's Day

Just a little card to help celebrate Valentine's Day!! Literally, it is little, it is a 3x3 mini card. I punched a couple of Martha Stewart Hearts (gotta love her paper punches), an EK Success border punch, and a few Recollections faux pearls to top it off. Inside a stamped sentiment. Enjoy your day!!! Until next time.................Blessings, Lisa

I'm back

to blogging. I got so tired of the pressures of my DT assignments, that I was having creative blocks, and absolutely dreaded writing blog posts. Plus, the big picture is that I have returned to school to get a different Bachelors degree. I say different because I already have a BS in Architecture, but there are just too many people in that field and not even close to enough jobs, even when the rest of the economy is doing well here in the US, the Architectural field is struggling. So, I am now pursuing a BS in Computer IT/Information Management, which means that I can be an IT Manager or a Database Administrator when I finish. This is keeping me very busy to say the least, and harder than I expected it to be, but it is a growing field, so I am keeping my eyes on the prize and am doing the best that I can. Now, Elizabeth, owner of Soft Pencil Studios, closed her digi image shop and eliminated the Design Team, however, her absolutely adorable images are being made into Clear stamp sets, and they are awesome!!!! I have been using them with Memento Ink pads, and they are stamping great images! I have been playing around with the stamp set "Garden of Friends" set and I have some quick and easy cards to show you that I made with them. Plus, I have a few more on my table in the works for another day. Here is what I have created so far:
Don't you love the stamp images? I want every set she has, and just wait until my tax refund comes, I am shopping!!! There is a link to where you can purchase Elizabeth's stamps on my sidebar, and it is called Latina Crafter, just click on the logo and you will get there. I have been bugging Elizabeth to bring some of her other cute images into sets, so hopefully in the future we will see more of her adorable artwork in the store!!!!! Keep watching my blog for Some more Soft Pencil Cuteness and anything else my brain decides to create.. Until next time.............Blessings, Lisa

Stamp-n-doodle Wednesday!!!

Welcome back to Stamp-n-doodle Wednesday! The challenge this week is called "Fabulous Folds", in other words, and card fold other than the usual. I chose the "gate fold". The image that I used is called "Waiting for Santa", if you look closely, you can see Santa's black boot coming down out of the chimney. Here is my card:
Now, hope on over to visit the other DT ladies blogs to get more inspiration and then join the weekly challenge for free digi images on the company blog! This will be my last Wednesday post for Stamp-n-doodle, I have stepped down from the DT. I have returned to college to obtain a new degree and I just don't have time to keep up with my DT assignments. I will still be posting here on my blog, I just wont be involved in anymore DT groups. I already have some new card creations made, so stay tuned to my blog for inspiration. Until next time............Blessings, Lisa
