Stained Glass

Oh boy oh boy! I just love playing with new toys! And yes, before you say anything... that is retired DSP that I am using up LOL

Some of you may not have paid attention to the new embossing folder "Subtle" OR you saw it and wanted to know what it really looks like once embossed. I was guessing that it would look like our old Linen Paper, and YEP I was right ...and of course, I LOVE it! Now we can make our own. YAY!

Here is a close up:

I love left-overs!

Well I'm not talking about food "this time"... but stamp supplies! I had some extra pre stamped butterflies from stamp-a-stack and decided to put them to goid use even though they are on retired DSP...

I just love the new embossing folder "Lovely Floral" and think it's the perfect addition for this simple card... add a little splattering and DONE!

Springtime Impressions

This month during stamp club I showed the ladies that we can use the pretty die-cut as a mask. I had pre-cut the curner pieces from white cardstock and then used a sponge brayer and applied Blueberry Bushel ink over it to create a pretty background... Well that once white piece of die-cut cardstock was too pretty to toss after we were done with the club meetings... so I used it on a card!

Isn't that just the prettiest die-cut you've ever seen? LOL... Oh and the white polka dot tulle ribbon can be easily custom dyed...yep! Some rubbing alcohol and re-inker liquid (I think I only used about 3 drops because I wanted it just a little lighter)...

Varied Vases

This week my upline held our monthly online meeting and she showed us how to make this darling card:

You may not be able to see the background really well, but it IS textured with the "Simple Stripes" embossing folder.  The card and top layer of cardstock is in the new Soft Sea Foam, which is really subtle and makes it a little hard to photograph...

Dena sent us all the supplies to make the card at home after her demo and since it is after 10PM our time when she holds the meeting, I guess my brain was half asleep already and I didn't remember that the red layer she sent was actually "Poppy Parade"... well I stamped my flower in... "Lovely Lipstick" and when I reached for the cardstock ... it just didn't look right LOL. So I simply cut a new piece in "Lovely Lipstick" and all was well again ;-)
