...and we had some visitors this evening.
Monday, May 28, 2007
This first one is all DCWV patterned paper and cardstock. I used my Marvy Uchida scalloped punch. For my circle I used Fiskars shape template, it fits perfectly. Two stamps are from Michaels, I have so many....Ribbon is May Arts.
This second card was very hard to photograph. For the card base I used metallic cardstock from DCWV and this beautiful pearlized and metallic patterned paper from The Luxury stack. My soon to be retired stamp is from Love Ya Bunches set from SU. I colored the image with my pastel pencils.
Yes, finally. All you need to do is post a comment here and tell me where you are from. If there is anything you would like to know, ask me a question. I will randomly draw a winner Monday night, May 28, at 8:00 pm CST. This will give everyone a chance to play since it's a holiday weekend. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. I have some glitter papers from Die Cuts With A View Nana's Kids Collection, Offray ribbon, clear stamps from Michaels and two blocks, chipboard flowers, chipboard photo corners and tags from American Crafts and a little treasure tin.
***I corrected the date, sorry.

I just made this card and I came up with it while I was cleaning. I made 8 cards in the last two days, all during my cleaning spree. I did make some progress, but still not done. OK, back to my card. I have this wonderful fall stack from DCWV filled with beautiful colors of fall. I used my Stampin' Up stamps from Give Thanks set. I love my little watercolor set from Chartpak, they stack on top of each other and they are easy to store. I always thought I needed a big set, but this is just enough. I did stamp with StazOn black ink on watercolor paper, I don't have brown, yet, I wish I did. I might have to visit Hobby Lobby this week, they have all their dye and pigment ink pads 50% off. For my oval tag I used my Sizzix die cut and stamped "thanks" from the sentiment in the stamp set. I stamped the leaves and then cut them out and used my little glue dots to adhere them to the hemp cord.
I have some goodies to give away this week!!! Thanks for coming by and reading my blog.

The plan for the day is to clean and organize my studio. If I ever finish I will post before and after photos. Have a great weekend.

Our new design team members are:
I made this card last year and it uses two of Impression Obsession stamps. Doodling around the edges is my own. I used white gel pen. This card almost made it into one of the magazines, but it was returned to me after some time, I guess they didn't have any room left. Sometimes that happens.
Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday, I started to, but I fell asleep.
