UCF Graduation Card

Made this card for Bill's Niece Katie for her Graduation from UCF. The School colors are black and gold. The paper is from a stack that Ben got as a door prize in MI. The mouse is heat embossed in black and the stamp is a House Mouse stamp. The inside has the same pattern of paper. I did not glue sown the top edges on the inside and that is where we tucked her gift.

Bella Christmas Card

I got the Bella Christmas Girl Stamped Image from the stamped image swap from the Port Huron SWARM. I first colored her with colored pencils and gamasol, then I stickled her dress, hat and tops of her boots. I used a metallic pen on the ornaments and star. I used Flower soft on the tree branches. "Merry and Bright" stamp is from a set I bought from Scrapspirit, Hot off the Press "Christmas Words". The red and green accent paper is Core-diations.

Peace, Hope, Love...Christmas Card

I love how this card came out. The paper is shiney paper that I won at the Lecanto SWARM. It is perfect for this card. I first used the Peace, Hope, Love...CB embossing folder, then I brushed it with metallic silver ink. I used the MS "branch" punch and made the wreath using off white shiney paper. I dotted the wreath with a few silver stickles....added a sliver bow and DONE!

Stamp is a House Mouse Stamp. My buddie Connie in TX stamped me a bunch of these. I think this little guy is so stinking cute! The "Merry and Bright" is a stamp from a set I bought from Scrapspirit, Hot off the Press "Christmas Words".

Another Branch Card

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the center of the wreath. Made the wreath using the MS "branch" punch and then added red stickles for "Holly Berries". Background is the swirls CB embossing folder.

"Rocking" Birthhday Card

My "fake" Niece is having a Birthday this week. She just got a new IPOD so I got her an Itunes GC. I came up with this idea for her card.

The front has a cassette tape on it from the "Indie Art" cart. I wrote on it musice from the 70's & 80's. The in the inside I made a "pocket" for the GC and wrote on it.....Today's Music.

Card For Son Away at College

I made this card for my surfer boy, Jon who is in his SR. year at UF. The penguin is a Art Impression Stamp. The background paper is malbury paper. The overlay paper is velum held in place with the fish eyelets. The sayings were done on the computer. The "sand" on the inside was embossing powder. The "bubbles" coming up from the snorkle and the "glass" on the mask is liquid glass from CTMH.

Water Works 8X8 LO

This LO is of one of my babysitting little girls, Eva. Eva loves to throw temper tantrums. I had made another LO using "water works" from Graphically Speaking. The letters were from that LO. The "doll" is made using PaperDoll Dress UP. I made the outfit to match her night gown the best I could (the little flowers are stamped using a Stamping Up stamp). The little Winnie the Pooh on the front was cut at 1" from the Pooh and Friends Cart. The face is stamped using "Just Baby Faces Assortment" from Peachy Keen (love their stamps).

Blowing Wishes Your Way Card

I made this card using a new stamp that I just got from Art Impressions. The background paper is from DCWV Stack. The "flowers" are Flower Softs. (I am in love with that stuff since finding it at te Lecanto SWARM.
