Happy Fathers Days to Everyone Today I stamped this first card for a friend using an adorable stamp from Stampingbella - Bess the Butterfly. I colored her with my Copic Markers and accented the wings with Glossy Accents. I used the Ranger Letter IT Greetings stamps Hello and Miss You. I mounted fun foam behind the card front for stability and gave the card some bling with glitter paper from Hobby Lobby. I hope she likes it. This 2nd card is also for a friends birthday just around the corner. I used Stampin Up! Soft Suede cardstock, and retired designer... Continue reading

Happy Sunday Everyone I am not enjoying this 90 degree weather that hit us over the last few days. But, more time to stamp in a cool house. YAH!!

I also used some thick acetate, tiny beads and sequins from my craft... Continue reading

Happy Sunday Crafters It's been a busy week at work and I couldn't wait to get into my craft room and create these two cards. The first card I created was my own stamped design birthday template. I repeated the stamping using the Pink Fresh Studio FLEUR stamp set, my Wishing Happy Birthday to you stamp and my Misti. I then printed and placed 4 copies of the card front on a master 8-1/2" x 11" sheet and printed that page using a laser printer. I cut apart the 4 copies and started foiling them with Therm O Web foils... Continue reading

Happy Sunday Crafters Well, I decided to dive into my foil supply stash. Everyone seems to be foiling again, so I said why not! I have made a few samples using the newest pre-designed toner sheets from Thermo Web/Gina K and Anna Griffin, along with a few stencils, plastic and brass, inks from Gina K and Happy Birthday stamps from Stampin Up. The glitter card stock came from Hobby Lobby when they had a 40% off sale, and boy did I stock up. I felt like a glitter queen when I walked out of the store that day. I really... Continue reading

It's been a long time since my last post. But I got a bug to get my Halloween projects for the group at work done early. The test tubes came from the Steve Spangler website. They are from recycled soda bottles. I used a 1-1/8" hole punch for a snug fit of the test tubes. I used a current Stampin Up stamp set, and retired Stampin Up Halloween DSP. I sprayed the test tube caps with flat black paint, and filled them with the Mini M&M's The boxes are filled with bite size candies. Thanks for stopping by. . .... Continue reading

Hello Everyone. . . . I hope everyone is enjoying a safe holiday celebration. I thought I would show you a few samples of the crayon resist technique. First you run your stamped or plain piece of cardstock thru your Big Shot with your embossing folder like normal, but before you remove the cardstock from the embossing folder, color it completly with your white crayon. Leaving it in the folder allows the embossed piece not to be crushed while doing this process. I used Stampin Ups/Sizzix Finial Press #115963, and the Petals Plenty #116824 folders. You then sponge on the... Continue reading
