So Serene


I discovered if I used Core'dinations Black Magic Collection cardstock and an embossing folder with my cuttlebug, the color on the backside popped through the front.  It is the cardstock that you can sand or tear it and the secondary color will show through but this way I did not have to sand it. The Stamping Up Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing folder is what I used is to create my background. I used three colors with a sponge to create the sunset and a rubber stamp from the Stamping Up set Inspired by Nature for the cattails.  To make the cattails, I used a punch (I believe has been retired from Stamping Up) to punch out the cattails and glued them down. 

A nice serene card!

Sympathy and Daisy

My husband is after me again to make more sympathy cards so I made him a couple the other night.  I used my  Touch Twin markers to color the flowers and used a white pencil to highlight.  Same technique but each card a little different.



thank you for stopping by and looking!

My New Toy-Sew Stamper

I ordered a new tool and got it in the other day.  It is from We R Memory Keepers and it is to create faux stitches on your creations.  It came with several attachments to change the type of stitch.  I only tried the straight stitch so far.  It is black self-inking stamper and is suppose to get over 1,000 impressions with it. I practiced on scrap paper first.  I was pleased to see I did not have any issues keeping it straight nor did it skip.  The black ink went on very smooth and even.  I am already thinking they need to come out with white ink for darker cardstock!

Along the top and along the bottom of the main image, you can see where I used the tool.  In the sentiment area, I hand drew them on.  You can definitely see a difference!


thank you for stopping by!
