For the inside:
All of the parts here are also cut from quickutz. The two browns used for the sleigh was Close to Cocoa and a light brown that I don't know the color. My friend let me have some of it for contrast. Santa is cut out in three colors, Blush Blossom, Whisper White and Real Red. Then cut apart and pieced together. I used stickles on him as well. The reigns is black embroider thread.

This is the first new set I had gotten in quite a while. I absolutetly love this set and can see it being very useful!!
This was for a card sketch HERE on Splitcoast Stampers.
I used really rust for the card base and more mustard for the layer. I distressed it with a stickle brush and several colors of ink. I did a lot of edge distressing on the whold card and inked with chocolate chip. the 3 layers are all framed with chocolate chip and a piece of the dsp autumn vine. I stamped the tree in chocolate chip and the leaves in more mustard, close to cocoa and ruby red. I then stamped the middle leaf with more mustard, cut it out and popped them up around the tree.
Stamps: season of friendship
Paper: autumn vine dsp, chocolate chip, real rust, more mustard, very vanilla
Ink: chocolate chip, more mustard, ruby red, close to cocoa
Accessories: 1/4" ribbon~more mustard, chocolate chip, sanding block, twine, assorted clips

So I know it's a little early but I have had this set for a couple of months now and FINALLY inked it up!
The image from Stampin' Up! Cruisin' Christmas was stamped with Stazon on watercolor paper. I watercolored using my SU! markers and aqua painters. I used a wide variety of colors. The green paper is Old Olive and the red, which I ran through my crimper, is Ruby Red. The image is framed with Night of Navy. The green fiber is a fiber from Michaels.
Even though the coloring took a while, the card itself is fairly simple. :)
Stamps: Cruisin' Christmas
Paper: Old Olive, Ruby red, Night of Navy, watercolor paper
Accessories: SU! markers, aqua painters, fibers, crimper

The technique wasn't hard at all! It has a great effect on the card and it makes the card look very elegant!
I used Rose red for the card base and a 1 1/2" strip put through my crimper. The 5/8" grossgrain ribbon is also rose red. The next layer is pink pirouette and it is only slightly smaller than a card front. Then the basic gray and baja breeze for the main image. I then covered the corner with prima flowers and silver brads.

A friend of mine sent me this stamp set and I love this image! I drew in the wall and floor and colored those in. This is for the VSN challenge Pride & Prejudice. P&P is my favorite book, hands down. I chose this image because she is reading a book drinking a cuppa joe and I can see doing that while reading. I created the background myself. The challenge was to use felt of some sort. The flowers are felt.Stamps: Sprinkles, Rubber Romance
Paper: Baja Breeze, So saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue, So Saffron, More Mustard, Bravo Burgandy, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Felt Flowers, Buttons

This acrylic rack was another find from the store. As you can see it's just got all my general stuff and I love how its laid out so that I can see everything.
I put my water color pencils in the white cup and my regular colored pencils in the brown cup. I like them at my fingertips like that. :) You can kinda see my embossing gun hanging on the shelves on the left. I screwed in hooks for some things.
Here is all my business materials. The paper sorter was another find at the store. They were in great shape and just needed a little cleaning.
This is the next big thing we found. It's a card display. I haven't put my cards in there yet but plan to do that tomorrow. I'm beat tonight!
We did some research online and what we got for a very small amount of money could have cost 5 times that if bought new!!!!

I covered the 'stars' with white craft ink and embossed with a snow white sparkle embossing powder. They turned out beautiful imo.

I wanted to make an insert for my window bag that would fit. This is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. I decided to do a scrapbook page that I can add to a 12x12 page at some point. This picture was taken at Wrigley Field. I used Summer Days scrapbook pack from Stampin up. All of the pieces are from that kit. Colors included are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White. I added some Stickles to give a little shimmer. :)
Cardstock: Real Red textured, Wild Wasabi textured, Summer Days scrapbook Kit DP

I used the stamp set For a Friend and made 2 cards with each stamp which gave the winner a great variety. I used Papertrey Ink white paper and ran it through my cuttlebug and nestibilities. Then I ran the patterned paper from Afternoon Tea to make a rectangle smaller. After that I ran whisper white through on a smaller rectangle and stamped it with stazon. I did use a little bit of stickles to give some sparkle.
