{ Nothing to post???? }

I have to start creating. It is so nice to go on vacation, but it takes a while to get caught up with mail, bills, laundry, appointments.... OK, I have not created anything in a while and I miss it.
I did get two boxes of goodies from Paper Crafts and my Card Creations 5 magazine. I recognize so many names in there and I love all the beautiful creations. I did look through it couple of times, but I need to do it several more times just in case I missed anything. I do have two cards published in this magazine.

{ Crafter's Workshop card set }

I made this little set of cards to fit in the little tin box I got at Target $ spot some time ago. It’s a magnetic checkers game set. All the cards are the same design I just changed the papers. All the patterned papers are by Crafter’s Workshop, our DT sponsor this month at Create My Keepsake. I used my oval scalloped Marvy Uchida punch and Scenic Route rub-ons. I covered the tin, inside and out, with patterned paper.

Another card I made using Crafter’s Workshop patterned papers. In addition to the papers I used a doodling template.

***I am coming home Saturday and I will have more photos from Hawaii.

{ Aloha ! }

I wanted to let you know where I was in case you don't here from me in a while. I am in Hawaii !!! I will post some photos throughout this week. I do have some new cards, but I don't know how much time I will have. It is so nice to relax, a little strange without my daily dose of internet. I miss reading all your blogs. I will catch up whenever I can.

New Impression-Obsession stamps will be available July 23.

{ Thoughts of love }

I made this card using new Impression-Obsession stamps that are going to be available later this month. Isn't he just adorable? After stamping with regular ink I used my soft pastels for color. The white of his hat and the snow at the bottom is Liquid Applique that I got long time ago. I think this is the first time I got to use it. I used my heat gun to heat the applique and it puffs up. It's hard to see in the photo, but the ribbon has strands of glitter and I added some glitter to his hat, scarf, and the star. For background paper I used Frances Meyer, and a glitter scalloped card from DCWV. I used my scalloped scissors to cut around the oval shape.

{ Happy 4th of July }

Happy 4th of July. I made this card earlier in the year for a submission call, but it didn't get picked up. I think it's cute. Paper and stickers are from Doodlebug Designs, KI Memories stars and Darice hemp cord. I did not stitch the paper the patterned paper has printed stitches, pretty cool. I tried stitching once on one of my cards, it didn't work out....I need to practice more.New kit is available at Create My Keepsake - Star Struck. Come and check it out.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th.
