Stamping for Baby Jack

Ok, so I finally stamped something. Of course, it woudl have to be a baby onesie for little Jackson!! I got some organic cotton Gerber premie size onesies in white specifically so I could stamp on them, and hadn't taken the time until this week. I used SU! craft ink (Not Quite Navy and Old Olive) along with the Big Deal alphabet and Wild about You stamp sets. I just love how it turned out. I made 3 in all, and will show you the others as he wears them!

Hope everyone is well...and I hope to get my life back to normal by bringing little Jackson home in the next few weeks, and therefore be able to stamp again! In the mean time, check out the blogs of all the Prettie Girls for some sneak peeks of some ADORABLE new sets being released on November 1st (Saturday night) at a fun filled Prettie Stamping In Your Pajamas party!!

Thanks for checking in!!

My little Pumpkin... I said this baby was going to look just like Cooper! It might take him a little while to fill out and get those Cooper-esque chunky cheeks...but could he be any cuter??

Here's a project for you all! I made this for the Stamping in your PJ's party on the first, and just loved playing with this new little Cooper from Pick of the Patch which is available now in the Paper Pretties Boutique in cling mounted RUBBER!! WOOHOO!!! I think he's the cutest one yet! It's just a quick little tag, and Coop is colored in with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons. I'm starting to get into those again (or at least I was before my stamping hiatus began on Friday) And the cardstock is Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

CS: Stamper's Select White, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive

Very quick update...

The blurfers are getting this first...because it's easier for me to post here than compose and send an email!

I just got home from the hospital. Our son Jackson Philip Weaver was born Friday night at 8:20pm and weighed 4 pounds 2.5 ounces, 16 inches long. He was only 9 weeks early (compared to his big sister's 13 weeks) and is doing quite well comparatively. We still anticipate he'll be in the hospital for a minimum of 4 weeks, more likely 6-8.

So...I'm taking a brief hiatus here. I will probably have another blog to track Jackson's progress for family and friends, but will only be posting sporadically here as my life just got a heck of a lot busier.

Thanks for all your support!

PJ Party Fun

I had a great time at the Paper Pretties Stamping in your Pajamas party last night. I managed to finish projects for 2 of the 3 challenges...and will have to try to finish up the middle one (a color challenge) tomorrow perhaps.

This project was created for the first challenge - try a technique you've never done before. One I've been wanting to try is where you put ink on your Cuddlebug embossing folder before putting in the cardstock. I put some old olive ink on the folder then put in my certainly celery cardstock to emboss. Isn't this new tree folder awesome??? I colored in Sophia with my aquapainter and watercolor crayons and then cut her out and popped her on to the tree. I then added some stickles for maximum glitter.

The certainly celery is layered on some Rose Red, which is then layered onto the Old Olive card. And can you believe I don't have any ribbon on here?? I can't!! Of course, I may go back and add some since it's looking a little bare to me now.

This Sophia is Trim the Tree Sophia, and she's the November Stamp of the Month. Isn't she adorable? If you sign up for the SOTM club anytime before October 31st, you'll get her in November ahead of everyone else. For the rest of you...she'll be available to order starting December 1st.

And speaking of the Prettie Boutique, Christie announced a wonderful sale last night in honor of her grandmother, a breast cancer survivor. All things pink in the store are now 40% off!! No need for a coupon code, just go straight to the sale section and the prices are already marked down. Have fun shopping!!

Prettie Wednesday Inspired!

Howdy folks. I'm finally back with today's Prettie Wednesday card. 2 Weeks ago Jessie challenged us to be inspired. Since I was doing this last minute (been fighting off a nasty cold the last two days and have had ZERO energy!) I looked up and remembered this beautiful leaf art I have hanging in my dining area (right near my computer) It's this amazing artwork by Booker Morey. This piece here is quite similar to the one I have.

I decided to use Falling for You Sophia since she is now available to purchase in the boutique (as of this evening) and she's perfect with these lovely fall colors!

I stamped her in Brilliance black ink on Stamper's Select white and then colored her in with my SU! markers. I stamped the leaves in the background with Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie paper, and then stamped the greeting with Chocolate Chip ink. I tied some hemp around that layer before popping my Old Olive layered Sophia on top and then adding the silk leaves. All that was then popped onto the chocolate chip card.

The PJ Party tonight has been fun...and you can look for some more fun sneaks of the newest stamps we've got coming out here over the next several days. You're gonna LOVE em!!!
