Quick post tonight. I did another Thanksgiving card for another relative to send and I used that wonderful new DP "Spice Cake"!! Love that combined with the DP First Edition with the leaves from French Foliage stamped on it in Soft Suede, More Mustard, and the gorgeous new "Pool Party!". Course as I look at this one (I did ten for my great aunt to send out) I realize that I didn't orient the sticky back pearl on the right so well!! Ah well its the personal touches right!!??

I know I promised a "sneak peek", but am a bit bushed with preparing the farm for "Irene"! Triple ICK! So anyway I thought I would share a card I did in my 5 techniques/1 stamp set class. This class was A LOT of fun!! For that class I focused on the "Just Believe" stamp set. On this card the technique is called "ghosting". Awesome technique!! You stamp the image in a lighter ink (in my case Crumb cake) than use the Stamp-a-ma-jg and align slightly down and to the right in a darker ink (Not Quite Navy).
Hope everyone is ready for the rain and winds!!
ps would love a comment or any feedback!! :)

Wanted to do a quick post before I hit the "hay" and no I am not going out the feed right at the moment (few hours maybe!!). Ok 'nuff pony humor. I just wanted to share my cute (or so I think) "Thank You" notes that I gave to my monthly stamp club members in July. The stamp club members are neighbors and friends who come once a month to my place and we do a few techniques, snack and "gab" for a bit! I always like to include a personal thank you with everyone's order. These notes are easy to make and are all cut to 3"x6" scored at 3" and folded. I did the Stained Glass technique (check my earlier post) and used the fabulous "Flower Fest" stamp set perfect for this technique! I also added a sentiment from my "go to" stamp set "Short and Sweet".
Have a good night!

After a fun but humid day riding, hitting the gym and my cute 4 year old nephews b-day party I thought I would post one of my favorite cards of the Summer! I love love love the Flower Fest set and am thrilled that set carried over to the new catty! This set is awesome for the Stained Glass technique! So pretty especially with the new 2011 in-colors!! Recipe is as follows:
Stamps: Flower Fest and Short and Sweet
Card stock: Whisper White – half sheet
Wisteria Wonder 5 x 4
Vellum Card stock 4 ¼ x 3 ½
Embellishments: White Embossing powder, heat tool, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and White organza Ribbon.
Markers: Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Island Indigo
Techniques: Emboss the Wisteria wonder sheet through the
Big Shot with the Polka Dot embossing Folder and adhere to the
white card front. Heat emboss the flower with white embossing
power and turn the vellum over and color in the flowers for a
“stained glass” look. Adhere with dimensionals after tying a knot
in the white ribbon. Stamp your greeting, punch out and adhere.

Well I started developing this blog back in June and have finally decided to "give it a go!" I am NOT the most technical person but I love the idea of sharing some of my creations, as I have been so inspired by the creations other people have come up with! Well this card was fun to do and uses my current, favorite designer paper called First Edition and a fantastic background stamp called "Medallion". The "recipe" is as follows:
Card stock: Naturals White – half sheet
DP First Edition 4.5”x3 ¾”
3 pieces Chocolate Chip 4x1 ¾”
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Antique Brad, Sticky Strip, Log Cabin Smooch and paper trimmer.
Techniques: Stamp the medallion on the DP, spray with the smooch spray and
than cut into three 1 ½” pieces. Adhere to the three pieces of chocolate chip with the
middle piece having the brad at its center. Use sticky strip to adhere the center
