TLC288, Shabby Flower

Well, what can I say but SHABBY. This is my 1st attempt at torn card board and shabby. I just thought shabby went with torn off cardboard but I'm not to sure how it worked for me. I distressed the edges of the DP and inked the card board. I then added hit and miss with the crystal effects and sprinkled brown and pink micro beads.I used a piece of burlap ribbon and inked with green and brown. I had real fun with a piece of pretty lace and made it look SHABBY with a pair of scissors. I made the flower with the SU ornament punch ( one of my fav. investments with my Stampin Up rep. Patty Bennett, see my fav. blogs ) and my cuttlebug. I used the I-Top for a matching center. Thanks for looking. =^..^=


SC295, To Cute. Loved this sketch. I used a Penny Black Stamp that is so adorable, Copics and some new fluffy ribbon from Joann's. Thanks for looking. =^..^=

Hubby's Birthday

Finally. Yes I'm on my blog but mostly playing around. Love my Halloween music and background? I couldn't resist. I did this card for hubby on wood CS with daubers and stamps. It was easy and fun. Hardest part is the wood CS wants to keep bending. Any Ideas? I also did the post it note blackout around the edge. Thanks for looking. =^..^=

TLC287, My Flower Sparkles

Well it's been a few days since I posted. Been way to busy lately with life things and not fun things. I have although made a very lovely birthday card for my hubby which I'll have to take pic's of and post. Hopefully by this weekend. I think I'll lock myself up in my craft room and have food brought to me this weekend LOL, LOL. This card above I did for an SCS challenge this week that I couldn't resist. It's Sparkle Stained Glass technique. It's quite easy except for all the waiting for sections to dry before moving to the next color of glitter. I suppose more experienced glitter guru's can master this without waiting out the drying time. I stamped the design with Stazon and then filled in little sections of crystal effects and sprinkled glitter. For the flowers I used a toothpick to spread out the crystal effects in the center so I could use a darker pink and then a lighter pink for the edges. I also used two different greens on the leaves. I made a mistake :( on SCS when describing how many colors I used on the flowers as it was actually four. I didn't have lace to match and liked this white lace so I made a concoction of alcohol ink and what I stamped on the lace and mushed in a small bowl with water. Turned out looking like tea dyed, might have just been easier to get a tea bag outta the kitchen huh :). Thanks for looking.

FS183-Yellow Rose

I almost forgot to post a challenge from last week. It's so pretty I've just been showing it off to my friends he he. I had so much fun doing this challenge (featured stamper) but it is very hard to pick a card to case from her as they are all so beautiful. I used a 1998 SU stamp I've had for a long time. Think I got from eBay. I also used a new technique I learned from one of my favorite card makers (lovelightandpeace) using corner punches. Thanks for looking. =^..^=

WT283, Fall

I made this card a little larger in picture so you could see the details, hopefully. I used flower soft on the trees and two leaf and a pumpkin buttons. I figured out on this shiny CS  that if I put to much ink I can just use a baby wipe to lighten it up. It worked great. I just love that paper from Me & My Big Ideas. I'll need to get more of that. You wouldn't actually know that I was asleep when I made this card LOL. Well halfway. Posted at 2:30 AM....eeks. Maybe that's when I do my best work.

Thanks So Much

SCS293, Another card sketch today. Oh how I agonized about this one all night. Finally went to bed not knowing what I was going to put on the front panel and then "Click" I thought just stamp on it with my new favorite stamp set, Watercolor Trio from SU. This set has got to be the most used set in history right now. I just love it as I'm sure a lot of other stampers out there do to. I kinda thought I could have used a different ribbon but didn't have anything that would match. Thanks for looking. =^..^=

I am new to this challenge forum on SCS and really enjoyed the challenge. I used my SU Waterclor Trio and just love this stamp. I colored the stamp with Marvy Brush markers in three colors. DP used is Basic Grey Kioshi. Thanks for looking. =^..^=  

TLC284, Friend

Another Plaid Technique card.

TLC284, Autumn

Here is one of my challenge cards to SCS Plaid Silhouette technique. I had a lot of fun with this technique and have made more than one card. With this leaf set from CTMH I covered them with Crystal Effects which made them curl natural and give them a shiny finish. Background paper is Basic Grey. Thanks for looking. =^..^=

Fluffles Full

July CCC10 SCS 2010 Christmas Card Challenge. I just love my Fluffles stamps by Stampendous.  This was a fun card to color . I used the spellbinders labels nine and lifted the frame a little with pop dots foam. I used a holiday cuttlebug 5 X 7 embossing folder for background and Provo Craft paper pad I had laying around. I colored with copics and made into an easel card. Thanks for looking. =^..^=
