what is a tent topper?

cut cardstock 8 1/2 in by 4 1/4 in, score in half.....cut an additional 4 x 4 1/4 in piece of cardstock, score at 1, 2 and 3 in....fold accordion style.... insert at the bottom so the card stands up without a problem.  folds nicely to fit in an envelope...

.stamps from well as the die cut balloons and clouds.....

witchy card

love this little sentiment stamp...dont even remember what company i got it from, it is unmounted, so no company name on it....isnt it just perfect for this PTI broom/witchy legs stamp?

thanksgiving cards

a few thanksgiving cards...

.my husband says "who the heck sends thanksgiving cards?"...well, i do.  and halloween and fall and other occasions people usually dont think of !

thanksgiving turkey

used a variety of punches....1 3/4 in circle, narrow oval, scalloped circle and scalloped oval....also a tent card, but this turkey makes it a tent topper tent card !  not so sure if he will be repeated....

fall tent card

oh my, love tent cards......

this one is 4 1/4 in square.....the stamp set is Falling leaves from PTI.  i embossed the leaves with two powders...with multiple fall colors in each.  i used crystal effects on the acorns.  the little orange circle peeking out is an envelope that has a hidden message that slides out.  since tent cards are tough to write on, this provides space for a message without having to write inside.

SU owl punch

i do love this SU punch......the owls can be made in so many ways....these two perch on a chipboard flourish....the sentiment is from SU...dont know if the beav's dad really said this, but it is true !!

halloween mode

.....spiders and bat are punched from a CB die that i have had for a few years....

halloween mode

since i have started selling my wares i must get in the halloween mode fast.  there is a street fair associated with the store that carries my cards so i have to hustle to get a good amount done by september 25th.

PTI friendship jar and jar fillers for fall are pretty nifty.  colored images with copics.....variety of papers on hand from years past serve as backgrounds....

three little purses

the fancy edge was created with an edge die from tim holtz.  small oval punch serves are the purse flaps....

used the rounded tag punch (SU) for the purse bodies, folding the punched out image in half.  i made the handles using a small circle punch punched over with a little larger circles....provided two handles that way.

happy rainbow and balloon

again..........stamps and dies from PTI....on a 4 1/4 square card......i put clear glaze on the rainbow and embossed the blue background with the swirls CB folder...a bit of clear glitter on the cloud for bling

popped out flowers

i used several tools for this card....a texture plate from PTI for the background and a flower die from PTI in different sizes.

i inked the texture plate in yellow and love the color and pattern it gave the cardstock, then i cut out three flowers and stamped the card in back of the popped embossed front piece.

weekly southernbreezes challenge

we were to use glitter or flocking or flowersoft for this challenge.

i chose glitter

this technique is "faux quilting"....scraps of scrapbooking paper sewed to a piece of cardstock and then popped up on the front of a 4 inch sq card.

the text is from PTI....

i used scor-tape on the bottom and added ultra fine green glitter to that to create a straight line.....pretty cool way to glitter.

southernbreezes glitter challenge

this card was made using a napkin which is glued on to a piece of cardstock with glue stick and then run thru a CB embossing folder and then inked with yellow.  the technique is called "felting". the butterfly is dusted with clear glitter.....a bit of bling.

sentiment from PTI....this is a thank you for a lovely 2 days spent with friends in Myrtle Beach.
