Thank you card

This winter I won't mind staying indoors because I will have my Arnold Grummer's Paper Making Kit to play with. You may think it sounds a bit crazy, but trust me on this one....recycling paper is addicting! On this card I used some scraps of metallic wrapping paper, and all I can so is.....oooooooh...aaaaaaaahhhhh....lol
seriously
All my paper ( except for the base card stock ) was hand made and oh does it sparkle! I just love the teeny tiny gold flecks and the feel of the paper.

house stamp - Susan K. Weckesser Tumbleweed Houses
( all other stamps are old and discontinued )

Congratulations card

I've been working on Wedding cards, needed 5 to get my inventory back up to normal. Usually I don't really like making them, but I had a lot of fun with this group. The first one I am entering in Simon Says - Transportation Challenge
It's hand drawn and water colored in, using a large ( and old ) Fiskars stamp for the word "Congratulations".

I gave the license plate some dimension using my Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots.

As always, enjoying the challenges :)

I am inspired!

and I was inspired by the color challenge and also the sparkles on the tree!

I used my Unity Stamp by Susan K. Weckesser - One of a kind Winter

The blingy tree also worked well with the Simon Says Challenge - Bling it On
I used my Ranger's Distress Glitter over top of the Molding Paste for the snow and a My Mind's Eye pink rhinestone for the center of the snowflake. I love me some bling! lol

ALSO, I am inspired annually with Susan K. Weckesser's 
unnamed (1)

So I make cards each year for my neighbor ladies, at 56 I am the youngest in the group and we are all single so we try and look out for each other!

Hipster Holiday

Simon Says - Holiday Cards


I made this card using the "Garden Whatnot Collection" stamp set from Susan K. Weckesser by stamping out the images and then cutting them out. I love how it turned out. A very whimsical hip card!

Sending love


Sending this card to a friend who has some unexpected bad news recently. A gift of love is the best thing I could think to send to her.

I used some of her newly designed "The Garden Whatnot" tag stamps to create a Christmas tree card for her. I think she will appreciate my little twist on using the tags like this, at least I hope so.

I used a little bit of my Helmar Liquid Scrapdots to raise up the banner over the tree.

I used my Sakura gel pens to color in the tree, and Ranger's stickles to the snow....I just love the sparkle and shine.
