Birthday Card

Mom's Birthday Card

I found these wonderful doiley stamps from Inkadinkado and knew I had to make something with them. I used boysenberry and white pigment pads from ColorBox to stamp them and clear embossing powder from Ranger. I stamped the images on cardstock from DCWV then cut various shapes adhereing them where ever there was space. I love the way this card turned out and Mom really loved it too!



Don't forget that I'm having a GIVEAWAY! As soon as I get 25 followers I will draw a name to get 2 clear stamps and 2 diecut folders and more. I know some have signed up for email notification but you must click on "Join this Site" and then you will be an official follower. Looking forward to mailing your box of goodies out.

Fancy Schmancy

Time for another Tuesday Trigger challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


The bright pink of our 'trigger' photo really inspired me this week so I went with the bright pink with black accent. This gorgeous flower stamp is from Anna Griffin. I heat embossed it, and then I painted the highlights on with bleach. I made a solution of one part bleach and three parts water. Then, I painted it on with a Q-tip. It really looks 3-D, especially in person. The sentiment is from Fiskars' Latte Love collection.

Here's the Tuesday Trigger photo from the Moxie Fab World. Isn't it yummy!?!

CHA Winter Show

Can't go to the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Winter Trade Show? Me either but you can see what's going on there with some great pix and videos at http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/
They are having a great time there. It's almost like being there yourself.


Cutting & Trimming Challenge

Oooo la la! Who doesn't love feathers!?!

I used my paper trimmer to create the shape at the top of this card and used a round-edge punch on the corners to soften the edges. I used lime green, hot pink and red paper. I added gems in matching colors along the top to accent the dramatic angles. I am entering these gorgeous pink feathers and their card in the Cutting & Trimming Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
