praying-for-youThis was another card from our Shoebox swap.  This card is actually the one that one.  I think it is so pretty.  I love how she put the little beads on the flowers.  I’m sorry I can’t think of her name right now.  I’ll post it when I remember it.  I think it is so pretty now.  I love the stamp set.

Freewheeling Friday 2-27-09

lucky-me-cardThis is a card I made for a workshop last March.  I found it and thought I would share it with you.  I love the colors of this card.  I would have never thought to put them together.  I got the color scheme from the dsp.  It’s one from an old catalog, but I still love the card.  The ribbon is also retired now but you can still get the ribbon slider in the Hodge Podge Hardware.

Thrifty Thursday 2-26-09

thanks-treesI love the simplicity of this card.  I received it in Brandi’s Swap as well.  It was made by my good friend Deborah.  I picked this card for Thrifty Thursday because it’s so simple to make.  It uses just one stamp set so it’s very cost effective.  You could make several at once very easily.  It’s also one that you could make and leave the greeting off and then just add a quick greeting when you need it.  Any of our great greeting stamp sets would work with this card and there is plenty of room for a variety of sizes.

Wacky Wednesday 2-25-09

hellow-there-cardI received this through a mail in swap with my up-line Brandi Barnard.  The Card was created by Kasia Jackson.  I think this is a really fun card and I love how it pops open. 

hello-there-card-opening1The card is a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ when it is closed.  One of the fun techniques on this card is she put clear micro beads in the wing of the bird and the cute little leaf is cut out of textured card-stock.

Technique Tuesday 2-24-09

thank-you-flower-rock-rollHere is yet another card from our Shoebox swap.  I love going to these events because I get such great samples from awesome demonstrators in our group.

This card really show cases the fun technique called rock-and-roll.  I love the effect this technique gives to your project and it’s so easy to do.

First stamp your bold image in the lighter color of your choice. 

Next simply roll the edge around the darker color.  This is called the rock-and-roll because you just want to use a gentle rocking and rolling motion to get ink on just the outside edges of the image while keeping the lighter color inside.

Then Stamp your image on your sheet.  That’s it your done.  This technique works best with a nice bold image like this flower.
