The Good, The Bad, And The Did She Really Make That Card! :D

Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I have posted. But I am  back! And I have a fun project to show you.

But first I wanted to take a minute to share some news. I have been selected to be on the Reverie Creations Design Team! Woot! I am so excited. It is a great little community that is just starting. It consists of a small online store, a message forum and some other fun things. I can't wait to get my first set of goodies and get scrapping : D! Right now with your first order you get a paper pack or adhesive for free! What a cool deal, hu! Just mention your choice in the comments section of your order. So head on over and join the community. It's a lot of fun!

Just very quickly, on a personal note.... Thank you to all of you that have reached out to say the kind things you have and to be good friends and family at this time. My family and I really appreciate all of you. Life is hard sometimes, but I am surrounded by good people and it makes the hard times not as hard as the could be. So thank you.

And now to the moment you have all been waiting for! In preparation for the movie coming out in just 16 days, I made the funniest cards ever! I would like to introduce you to the official Sparkle Edward card :D. Ok, they look kind of serious, but it came to me late last night and I was laughing so hard at myself when I came up with it and I knew I had to make them for my friends at work that like Twilight. I tried so hard to get a good picture of Edward on the card, because he really sparkles!!!!! Yep, he sparkles just like in real life.

Here are the pics:

I know, I know! I am totally a dork! But I so can't help myself sometimes : D.

Here are all the cards for my peeps at work!

As I have said many times before, I love the books and am Team Edward for sure! So for anyone who doesn't like the series, I know it's not for everyone. And for those of you that are Team Jacob, no I did not make you a card : D.

The stamp set with Edwards face is actually part of a set that I purchased at Barnes & Noble of all locations. I got it when New Moon was still in the theatres. I tried to find it on their site so I could link you guys to it here, but I couldn't find the set anywhere on the site. On the back of the container for the stamps I found a web address: So I went to it and found the New Moon section. I clicked on it and it took me to a Amazon store where I still couldn't find it. :-( I took pictures and posted them just below in case anyone wanted to track the set down still and maybe if you contact someone at the necaonline site, you could find the it that way. 

The set consists of this beautiful Edward, one of Bella and Jake, and then a Team Edward, Team Jacob, Twilight, Cullens banner, and the Cullen Crest. Plus it also came with a black ink pad and they all came in a metal tin. So I have had the set for a while, but this is the first time I have used it. I doubt I will ever use the Team Jacob or Jacob's face stamps! But now if there was a Team Taylor Lautner stamp, I would definitely use it! : D.

Here is the nitty gritty:

  • Cardstock - Basic Black, Whisper White Stampin' Up!

  • Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny {Black and Grey, Grey and Cream, Yellow and Black and Red, Red and Black for roses} and Presto Patterns Specialty DSP Stampin' Up! {red and white paper strips - This paper is solid white with embossed images on all of the paper pack. I took a makeup sponge and rubbed the red ink all over the paper. The embossed images stay white. It's really fun to use and it's got a way cool texture to it.}

  • Stamp Sets - Twilight {included the black ink pad} from Barnes & Noble manufactured by NECA, Sparkle sentiment is from the Warm Words set from Stampin' Up!

  • Brad - Red Rhinestone Fire Circle Stampin' Up!

  • Ribbon - Black Velvet Making Memories, Grey Satin Stampin' Up!, or Black Grosgrain Stampin' Up!

  • Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer Stampin' Up!
I know the roses cover up most of Edwards hair but the stamp cracks me up, because even it has huge hair!

Here is the next thing to show you.... Amber finished her card from our Stampin' Up! Use All The Products That We Buy Swap, so I thought I would show you now. I am waiting to get Marci's. So when she does, I will also post it. Amber purchased the Itty Bitty Bits set, Bitty Buttons, and Punch Pack. They are so cute and definitely so Itty Bitty! The funny thing that we were all laughing about was she used all three things on the very center of her flower on the card, and that is the only place they all are : D. It still turned out super cute though, doncha think! The patterned paper is My Minds Eye.

Here is Amber's cute card:
In the very center of the flower, you see the stamped image,
the punched out flower and button!!! Is it not the
cutest, Itty Bittiest
layering you have ever seen! The layered flowers behind are cut from Amber's Cricut.

I am now up to 6 hole followers here - officially anyway! I know I have lots of stragglers that still happen by. So thanks guys!!!! I am glad to have you!

And lastly but never least, I leave you with the pictures Peyton had me take of her today. As I was sitting down to post on my blog, she saw the camera and said "Take my picture Mom!" She is so going through a little diva stage right now. It's pretty cute! She makes Thong and I take pictures of her all the time with phones or cameras!

So here is her little mini photo shoot! The first pic is my fav for sure!

Look at that laugh! She's so cute, I can't help but be in love with her : D

I imagine this will be the smile to see in school pictures in many years to come.

Look at all those toys in the background!!!

I am off to watch the first episode of season 3 of True Blood! Team Eric! Down with Bill! Good Night ladies!
