I'm back! I've been very busy redecorating and reorganizing my stamp room. Yippee! I'm almost done with it. Will post pics in a day or two.
Today's posting was inspired by Becky. Check out her tutorial here. I love her work. She's very talented. I made a few changes on mine. I used 3 Medium Whisper White Square envelopes (107289) and Delicate Dots DSP (114674). I also added strips on the folds. I punched 3 Bashful Blue CS (106525) circles with the Scallop Circle punch (109043) for flowers. Inked them with Bashful Blue ink (105209), punched a 1" circle (109046) and added a silver brad on each flower. To finish it off I added Velcro on the inside of the flap. Isn't it cute? You can add 2 cards in each pocket. :o) Would love to hear what you think of it. Interested in purchasing any of the products I used? Click on Shop here. Thanks for stopping by!

Sorry I was MIA for a while. Have been busy with updating my stamp room. Will show pictures after I finish. Okay, back to my posting. I created this simple card for an Occasion Mini swap. You can't see it on the photo but there is glitter on the center of every flower. (sorry for the poor photo) I used the Soft Summer stamp set. Hope you like. See you tomorrow.

This is a cased card, but I used a few different techniques and colors. I bleached the bottom tree for highlight, while Michelle used a white gel pen. This is the tutorial, click here. Michelle Zindord is a wonderful artist. You will learn a lot from her. This is my second tutorial with her. I love it! It was so much fun! My fingers were all inked up and it felt great. It made me feel like a real artist. :o) Let me know what you think. Have a good evening.

Aren't they beautiful? It was so much fun making these tiles. It's very easy! I used staz-on to stamp the images and dabbed ink; let it dry and spray a seal on them. That's it! Now I haven't decided if should use them as wall decors or as coasters. What do you think? Let me know. :o)
I'm back again!
This card was made using the brayer technique. This is my very first time I used this technique, but it will not be my last. I was inspired by Michelle Zindorf. She is amazing! Go and check out her blog. She has many tutorials using the brayer. I also used the Buzzy Bee Stamp set, watercolor crayons, and Regal Rose ribbon. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
Isn't this basket adorable? I love it! A friend/SU demonstrator showed me how to make this bunny basket. She was taught by another demonstrator who went to Convention and saw this project. The bunny was made with punches. The basket is an invitation envelope, sealed and cut of two ends. If you want additional information please contact me at email@example.com. See you later! :o)
