I love how the oval makes the tree scene look so nice! I used another oval for a shadow effect. Know what the corrugated parts are from? Can't guess, well it is from a light bulb box! Recycle, think outside the box, LOL

My next card, the red one, was using my oval scallop nesties and the plain ovals. I like how it turned out...

Loving 3 1/2 X 4 1/2 cards!!!

This first card (from the bottom up) is done with the vellum scrunch I think that is the name. Second one is no special technique, just cut out the center of window to insert my image. The last card is so darn cute. I saw an ad for this doll and immediately thought of this stamp from SU! for her. Hope you like it.

Posted by PicasaI love this set! It is very versatile. I stamped the image and then took a stencil to color and make the pussywillows! The saying is made with my Design Runner Maker. You can make any saying you like. It is really a lot of fun using. If you don't have a certain saying you just get out your make and make one!!!


Had this background done for a while and decided to use it for this stamp from Stampin' Up!
I thought it worked well with it.Posted by Picasa


I had the fence for a long time and never really had something that would make it great. Then I got Tilda and she just needed something to sit up against. I think it's great. How 'bout you?

Maze book ~ Long over due!

One of my stamping friends this summer, Cyndy Evans, on one of my groups showed me how to make one of these. She had come out from PA to visit one of the other gals on the group whom she had become very good friends with, Barbara Cooke. Was so nice to actually meet someone from the group! After returning home from the visit, I got to thinking about it, and it just seemed like I knew that fold. Sure enough, I found my template for it from years ago on Sandy Genovese Scrapbooking show...I thought it was familiar. You take a 12X12 sheet of double sided paper and do this folding and then 2 cuts and voila. Sorry no picture. I have had much fun making these. My friend has also made these and sold them...Chela is her name.
No matter where it comes from it's always fun doing something creative with someone else!

I'm BACK....

I've been forgetting to post for sometime now. I had no idea it has been 3 months!! OMG. Well, I do have a few cards I've been working on for a craft show at my GF's cousins house in San Diego. I won't be there, but she is taking my cards in hopes they will sell.

So I hope you'll enjoy looking at some of them I've done for it.

I've been trying to do this technique for sometime after seeing Zindorf's art. WOW, is all I can say. Tried it like she said in her blog tuturial, no way, those brayer lines were awful!

So I got a "lightbulb" moment, hey, why not try it with pastel-chalks and voila, it turned out pretty good. Not perfect like Michele's, but good enought to show. Also, the plant and the word is done with basic black dye ink.

So here's to you Miss Michele Zindorf!!!

Today I had one of those lightbulb moments! I thought to myself, how about a card where you can color outside the lines! Yes outside not inside. You need a line art stamp one with lots of open areas. This is soooo much fun and easy to boot. But it gives a wow factor to your stamped images! Take alook and tell me what you think.

Here are some of the cards I've been busy creat- ing. No special techniques with them, but had so much fun putting them all together. Too bad my Barely Banana card is sooo light. It just doesn't due it justice! All in all, I think they all turned out terrific, how 'bout you?

Here are a few ATC's that I've been working on. Tell me what you think.

The 1st is a technique called Oil Pastels w/Gesso, one of my new favorites to do!

Next, Lined Chalks.

Super easy...

The next 2 are 1. No special tech. just used laquers on the flowers! Last,

Is Waxy Cuttlebug! Another super easy and fun looking technique!

WOW, I loved this painting. I did this on a video box. It is one of my favortie ones. The doily was put on with spray adhesive and then pounced paint over it. Then removed and painted the rest of the flowers and the old time glasses/card.
