She's All That Card with Lost and Found Paper

Hi Everyone!!

I just got this stamp set "She's all That" from a stamp sale that Terry Su is having this month. It's from 2008 and I have always loved it but would really only use two of the four stamps. This image of the girl with the poodle is my favorite!! I had to use her first. I went shopping at Hobby Lobby with my friend Deanna and she bought me this paper for my Birthday... Love It!!

I stamped the image right onto the DSP. I cut the hand and the "ooh la la" from the DSP pack.

I wrapped the brad prongs onto the ribbon then tied the hand pointing down at the coffee. I put it on with Hot Glue... don't want to mess around with things falling off because they are to heavy anymore.

This card I used the same DSP pack. Yes that is a button with a rosette and tags!! lol I know!! but it is so cute!

I just love the glitter on the poodle and the dress, its like they have matching outfits on. lol

Stamp Sets:
She's all That 4pc set from 2008 Occasions Mini

Stampin' Up Fabric Owls .... with Flirtatious, Twitterpated and Spice Cake Fabrics

Look at this Cute bunch of Owls!!

I got busy this weekend and finished a bunch of Owls that I had cut out. When I sit down to make these owls I spend most of the time mix and matching the fabric for their wings and tummies. I can't stop thinking of all the different ways to put the fabric, sometimes it keeps me up at night. LOL

Some are still up for Adoption, if they have "Available" on them. They are 15.00 each plus Shipping of 5.95. I take PayPal. I am only shipping in the US right now.

Here is the family Portrait.
All these owls are Sold... I can make one for you if you like.

Graphic 45 Card with ABC Primer Paper, And Button Challenge over at Paper Players #87

I love Buttons, I really have to control myself when it comes to using them on my cards. So this was the challenge for me, fun and easy. My friend Deanna showed me this paper and some cards that she had made and I just had to make some too. I had so much fun with it, using my framelits, embossing folders and punches and only one stamp to make these 2 cards!!

I think this card is perfect for a Teacher gift. I am going to make a bunch of them and give them to my Son's 4th grade Teacher. The paper is Graph 45 and I used several different papers from the "An ABC Primer Collection"

 If you like to use buttons or just want to join a fun Challenge, just jump over to The Paper Players. The Design Teams Cards are fabulous fun this week!!

This is a very small amount of my Button Collection. Just the jars that are in my dinning room.

I added just enough glitter so that it had that fun vintage look.

Here is my Button, I used the Deck the Halls buttons. Then I took my 3/4 inch circle punch and punched out my image. I punched out some circles in black and added them to the back of the image to make it more stiff. I used Hot Glue so that it will stay on my card forever. 

This card was also a ton of fun to make. I just love that ABC paper down the side, that is what I used for the small images on the buttons.

Used the Dazzling Diamonds glitter here on her outfit.

I used a metal tag behind this image. So cute I love it!

I have had this cute stamp set for a really long time. It's called "It's Academic".
