Yet another....

Of my current favorite stamp set in my current favorite colors!

My ABSOLUTE fave stamp set ever!!!

Some samples with my new favorite stamp set....5th Ave Floral (SU)...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!
I also did the Manhattan Flowers Decor elements in my bathroom (in choc. chip, and kraft!) and have the designer paper! It absolutely doesn't show up, but I used some dazzling diamonds glitter in the center of the flowers on both cards for some bling.

Easter bAsket

A make and take from my last workshop...

This a 6x6 page I did for a demo....Regal rose, kiwi kiss, and choc.chip, scallop oval (new from SU!!!) and the small oval

Cracked Glass

These next 2 cards are using the same colors. This card was actually supposed to face the other direction (scallop at the bottom), but when I stamped the thank-you sentiment I did it upside down....Duh! I had to modify! I also used the cracked glass technique over the flowers, but it is not showing up to well in the photo.

Eastern Blooms

I was attempting to mask these flowers but for some reason it wasn't working so well! I finally used some of my Hodge Podge hardware that I am hording! The baja breeze was embossed with one of the sizzix texture plates, using my Big Shot.

Faux Metal technique

Using silver paper, I stamped the image (Cute and Curly), embossed it with silver embossing powder then punched it out with the Curly Label punch!

Comfort food

This is a hostess set from SU...I cut out the popcorn and the box and popped them up with dimensionals.

MOJO Monday Sketch

This is the MOJO79 sketch. I used Sahara sand, pacific point, kiwi kiss, baja breeze, and riding hood red (SU), the sentiments and flower are from "Live Like You Mean It" (SU) It is hard to see in the picture but I also used the sizzix flower texture plate to emboss the kiwi kiss that in the mail today and had to try it out!!

Another Attempt At Watercoloring....

I have spent all morning in my craft room, and this is all I have to show....Actually I have done a couple of other projects, but won't post them for know as I want to keep them secret!
This card definately looks better from far away....sigh....I'll keep practicing!

YIKES...looking at this again, that sandcastle doesn't really look like a sandcastle from here...

In Colors

This is the Urban Garden (or Urban Oasis I forget which!) DP. I used Basic Grey for the base, then Baja Breeze, and the DP is the the In Colors (SU).


I made this for our friend who we had a birthday dinner for last night. He is a big beer and red wine fan, so the Cheers to You set from SU was perfect. I tried the "puff paint" finally, it was perfect for the foam on the beer, also used lot's of glossy on the picture to see the detail.

Mini Cards

3x4 cards I made last night using some scraps I had on my table. The DP and ribbon are from the Sale-A-Bration mini...I am workings mornings (early) right now and am very tired, so things may not be centered very well!

I stamped the butterfly with Pixie Pink and Riding hood Red (rock&roll technique), then cut it out and glued it on to look as if it is flying....used the 1" circle punch to create the scallop edge again (love this!)
The paper is Riding Hood Red Designer paper (SU)

A past Mojo Monday sketch....

That I never did try at the time it was posted, but did today. Also Color Throwdown colors of the week....

Thank-you card

I finally got around to using my curly label punch and stamps. Simple card but I am happy with how it turned out.

Just B....

These 2 cards are kind of based on one of the last Mojo Monday Sketch's (MOJO75). I used my 1" punch to create the large scalloped edge. Color's are Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, and Very Vanilla. Stamp set is Just B (SU)


I used ink pads and an aqua-painter to color the cake image, which I have never done before, so thought I would give it a try.
