Lace swap

I do a lot of swaps ... not as many as some, but a lot for me.  This was made for a "lace" swap.  It is made using a white on white embossed paper that I colored with a blue Copic marker.  Once I had it all colored I wiped it off with paper towel leaving color only on the card stock and the "lace" white.  It is really nice paper to work with.

Jack and Jill Spinner card

This was for a technique swap.  It is a spinner card and, obviously, little Jack is about to tumble down the hill ... hopefully he won't break his crown. *grin*  It was a fun card to make.

Die Cut Swap

This card is for another swap I was in.  I ran a piece of card stock through my Grand Calibur and then mounted the corset (cut on my Expression using SCAL) using pop dots.

Congratulations Natalie and Paul!

I love making cards for people I know.  A couple in my swing dance club are expecting a baby at the end of July.  The base of the dresser is cut from a piece of veneer and stained with the olive green Distress Ink.  That's a little onsie hanging out of the top drawer.  


A friend recently graduated with a Masters in Library Science ... this is the card I made for her.  (Congratulations Crystal!)

Dog Days of Summer

This card is another swap card, and yes, another Mo Manning image!  I used Diamond Glaze on every area that is water, as well as on the face plate of the little boy's mask.

Kissing Booth

I made this card for a swap.  I used a digital stamp of the kissing booth on the front of the card.  After mounting it on the card stock I cut out the center so that you see the "kissee" that is on the inside of the card.  She is a Mo Manning digital image ... I love Mo Mannings images!  I can guarantee you will see a lot of them on my blog. *grin*

Wedding Cards

I created two cards for my hairdresser, both easel cards.  She had seen my cards and asked if I would make a card for her to give to her friend.  This is the one she chose.  I stamped the image onto plain white card stock and then cut out an extra top piece of the dress on white pearlized card stock and bustled it up with pop dots.  Again, I used Flower Soft on the bouquet.

This is the cream and brown version ...  the one she didn't pick.  As with the black and white version, I stamped the image (this time on cream card stock), I cut an extra piece of the dress, used pearl powder to give that piece some sheen, then bustled it up with pop dots.  I used Flower Soft on the bouquet.

This is the envelope I made for the cream and brown card.
