owls in a row

stamped this cute owl on three paint chips....used versafine onyx ink....found that in trying to color it with my copics, the ink smudged even after a day of i only did parts of the "gals". since the shape is weird, i also made an envelope with some patterned sentiment, waiting to see what i might need in the future

the background cardstock is from a "glitter stack" i got a few years ago....put a small yellow dew drop on each cause it looked a bit bare......


made this using a paper from a summer DCW stack....reminds me of the 60's !! flower power and all.

the glass is made of vellum, sponged with some brilliance inks. the lemons and limes are from the Tart and Tangy SU set. the paper had a matching i cut the 1 in circles of drinks and used a small sentiment stamp for each. covered with a clear jelly.... it pops. the glass is frosted with diamond dust....

makes me thirsty just to look at them !!

bear made from nestability circles

made this little gal using nestability scalloped circles and SU small oval and 1 inch circle punches.

background tan cloud paper was stamped with a wheat-like stamp in olive chalk ink....sentiment is "enjoy today" . i think the bow gives her a jaunty look.

sun shaker

needed to make a card with glitter on it for southernbreezes challenge this week.

this is a shaker card...cut the sun with a nestability borrowed from a friend (NO, i do not have every nestability made...surprised me too) and filled it with gold microbeads. the background paper is from a pack i got last year at Sams is two sided and a nice weight for layering. i rounded the corners of the card for a change in pace.

i used "diamond dust" on random stars, dots and around the sun itself....i hope the camera picked up the sparkle of the ultrafine pearlescent glitter.

shakers are easy and fun to make, it was nice to do another....havent made one in a long time.

Christmas in July

since we are having guests for the next few days, i had to go back to my Christmas stash of pictures, no time to dig out Christmas stamps etc !! I made these last year....i used the gingerbread man sizzix die and made shaker cards. tiny little shakers...only in the cut out heart buttons !

i also included my great gingerbread cookie recipe ! background papers were from Michaels open stock. I sure hope they get more paper this year as they havent changed the Christmas stock in a looooong time....i see papers there that i have had for a few years !!

goin' fishin'

i think this little guy is cute. cut the bowl with my round nestability die, fish are from the "just beachy" SU set, reeds from "pond life" from cat, and fish with crystal effects....used that to adhere the little beads on the bottom of the fish bowl as well.

background paper from a stack i got at Sams Club months ago, i stitched the inside papers to each other...had to use my new mini sewing machine from it a nice texture.

4x4 in notes

i used stazon ink and stamped the flowers on paint chips.....the background paper is from a stack from joanns. i also made the envelopes using my scorpal. the scorpal site has lots of tutorials and envelopes are fun to do !! and it uses paper you otherwise would not use.

fishy grid card

this is easy and fun to do....i used a 4x5 in top layer and made 1 inch grids in pencil. then stamped fish from "just beachy" (SU)...., colored with copics and went over the pencil lines with a fine point black marker. then i randomly colored squares to accent them

popped some fish out, glazed them with crystal accents/diamond dust.....the inside has multicolored "bubbles"....that was from a stack i got at Joanns awhile ago. i typed the sentiment on the computer....
