We used colored pencils and embellished with some dimensional flowers. Terry created this very cool origami shirt (bottom left). We all got the chance to use the Scor-pal and try out the art of paper folding. the deign was finished off with some coordinating buttons. Sue M. created this red, white and blue card (bottom center) - Fourth of July if just around the corner and is perfect for any type of patriotic event/need. Gloria created this s'mores birthday card (bottom right). We used prismacolor pencils and gamsol on this one to created some great colored effects on the stamped images.

Happy Bird-Day

Today's card is inspired by a card done over at More Paper Please. I really toned down the card a lot as I thought it was super busy and wanted the focus to be the cute little birds. I created the birds in Illustrator and exported the file to my Silhouette cutter. I think I spent about 3 hours just assembling the birds. Very happy with this one. It will also serve as a card for a birthday coming up this weekend for my boyfriends mother. I think she'll like it. Saturday we leave for the beach in North Carolina and then to Pennsylvania so I'll be gone for two weeks so needless to say I won't be posting much if anything :-( At any rate happy Wednesday folks!

Tote Bag

Hello. Today, I spent the bulk of the creating this little beauty. I just love it. This is my very first handmade tote bag. Sure there were a few oops with the sewing of it but I don't think anyone can tell unless I pointed them out. So, should I make it again at least I know what NOT to do. I really like the colors a lot and think the dragonfly button set was perfect for the outside pocket. Thanks for looking.

Happy Father's Day Slider Card

Today's card is the Father's Day card that I made for my Dad. I turned this on into a slider card the little dog bone will slide from side to side. This is created using two pennies mounted with some foam adhesive. I also used my Versamark marker to make the little watermark paw prints in the background. The entire front of the card was mounted with foam dimensional to allow the slider to move. This card is also part of the challenge on Kitchen Sink Stamps, we are to decorate the corners and I think this fits that challenge perfectly.
