Altered Notebook

I thought I needed a notebook for Regionals coming up so I covered this 5 X 7 notebook to take in my purse. The paper is SU Shades of Spring DS. I used the new butterfly embosslit and some Certainly Celery ribbon to finish it off.

Card Patterns 48

For this card I used http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/ #48. I started off with Whisper White CS and added some of the new Sending Love DS paper from SU. The sentiment is from the set Well Scripted. I finished it off with Real Red CS and Pretty In Pink ribbon. Enjoy the week and thanks for stopping by.

Regionals Swap Card

Yeah, I just finished all 50 of these cards for the swap at the Ft Collins Regional seminar. The card was time consuming coloring all of the flowers but I am very pleased with the finished product.

Stamping411 - 134 & 135

I should be working on my cards for seminar but thought I needed a little break. On the first one I used the Sending Love Specialty paper along with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla CS. I used my new Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit with Pretty In Pink CS sprayed with rubbing alcohol and Frost paint. The sentiment came from the stamp set Well Scripted. On the second card I used Shades of Spring Specialty paper with So Saffron and Certainly Celery CS. The sentiment is from Four Square

Well it's been a long time since I had my Mojo on but once again, France you have inspired me. I flipped the sketch and used Appricot Appeal CS for my base. The DS paper is Nouveau Chic. I also used Sage Shadow CS. My stamp set is Wings of Friendship. I colored the bird and flowers with my markers and then stamped my sentiment in Basic Grey ink. I cut the sentiment out with the 1 1/2" circle punch and then used the scallop circle punch for the next layer. The biggest circle was made by putting together two round tab punches. Enjoy!

Sympathy Card

One of my co-worker's husband passed away last week so I made the card for her to let her know I was thinking of her. I used Baja Breeze CS, ribbon and ink. The stamp sets I used are Beautiful Borders and True Friend. I don't recall the name of the DS paper. Very simple card but I think it turned out nice. Enjoy your day.

The More The Merrier

I made this card using the stamp set The More The Merrier and Teeny Tiny Messages. You can't really tell in the picture but I sprayed the white CS with rubbing alcohol mixed with Frost White all purpose ink to give it a shimmer look. I colored the cupcakes with my markers.

Quilt Card

Thanks France for doing your video on this card. I always thought it was much harder to put together than it actually was. I used black CS and then the rest of the paper came from the Hostess level 1 Patterns Pack. I used an embossing folder on the background piece to add a little dimension and I put Craft Chocolate Chip ink on the brad to give it some color. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Messages. I hope you have a wonderful week!
