This is another old card I did this summer. The batik looking strip of paper on the left got its awesome look by using some marbles, a couple colors of reinkers and an old stamp set case. So fun and easy. Just choose your colors of reinkers and put 2-3 drops of each color in the case. Place your marbles in and roll them around a bit. Then place your card stock in the case and roll the marbles over it. Only a tiny bit messy. Enjoy!

Hello all and happy Sunday. It's a beautiful and warm sunny day here in Sactown. This is a card I came up with for a Stamp a Stack I did with my friend Tracy in late January. I used Twitterpated fabric from the mini catalog on the base, and stamped with the Bordering on Romance set on the Conffetti white cardstock. Kind of sweet, I was thinking Valentine's day but with the option for using it any other time as well.
Here's a close up of the detail. I punched the heart out and ran it through the big shot using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder, then painted the center of the flowers using the smooch paint that I believe is being discontinued so get it while it's hot. Oh, and FYI, I found that glueing the fabric worked best with a glue stick. Some sewing might be cuter but I don't have a machine. Enjoy!

Happy Sunday everyone! It's such a lovely day I should be outside, but here I am playing on the computer instead. It's so nice now that I have uploaded all of my photo's to be able to sit down and create a post whenever I want.
This is the card I made for my hubs for the big V-day. It's not a very good pic, I should have gotten an up close shot of the heart. I stamped and embossed it from a very old Stampin' Up hostess set, it says "Lovey Dovey". I embossed it on some metallic purple cardstock a very good friend had given me for Christmas one year. The background CS is just something I picked up somewhere, the black design is flocked and I thought it spoke for itself so I didn't want to do too much to it. I layered it over some Perfect Plum and the base is just Whisper White. The ribbon is from a spool of Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon I've been hoarding because it's discontinued (I must love him if I used it on his card...he better not have thrown it out!). I hope you like it!

These two lovely tags I'm actually proud of, that doesn't always happen for me. Sometimes I work so hard on something that by the time I'm finished I can't stand to look at it anymore. Anyway, I made these to go with the teacher gifts I made for my boys teachers for Valentine's day. I used scraps for various places, I'm pretty sure the designer paper is from a discontinued Stampin up set, as is the jack in the box stamp and the die cut I used for the heart. I had more close up picks but my computer isn't cooperating at the moment. Enjoy!

Finally! One of these days I will get on the ball and get in the hang of uploading my pics and posting regularly. These are a couple of coffin shaped treat boxes I had my gals from one of my clubs make last weekend. I got the template from the SU! website and the paper is from the Well Worn DSP pack. I thought the wood grain was perfect for a coffin. I also tried my hand with the scored medallions, much easier when you have a scoring system. I had tried them once before with just my regular scoring tool and it was a disaster. Anyway, Happy Halloween!
