Razzleberry Christmas

I used a Christmas collage stamp. I colored the rhinestones with sharpie markers and used a distressing tool around the two background pieces of cardstock. The stamped image was torn out before coloring with daubers. Wrap the ribbon around the card piece before mounting to the card base, then tie a small piece on with a simple knot.

Too Much Cake

This card was made with some stamps that I accumulated somewhere :) .
The card stock, Polka Dot Parade DSP, and watercolor pencils to color are all from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is stamped on whisper white and cut out around. I then taped it to the Marina Mist cardstock and cut out around it again, leaving just a bit of an edge.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Jars of Love

The center jar is actually a shaker with heart and glitter confetti. To create this, stamp three jars on your cardstock base and one on a matching piece of scrap. Using the die, cut out the scrap piece (if using scissors, cut just outside the line) and trim the center out just inside the outline. Cut the same shape from window sheet. Using the liquid glue, attach the window sheet to the cut out piece. I then trimmed a narrow strip from around the dimensionals and placed it around the edge of the the jar. Attach the bottom half to the card, add your "shaker" materials and seal the rest of the jar.

Thoughts & Prayers

A simple sympathy card. The white spots on the card are not at all as vivid as in this photo. They are acually very muted.
Current SU supplies used:
Basic Grey
Whisper White
(used a retired lighter grey for the card base)
Whisper White
Early Espresso
I used the whisper white craft ink to mute the Basic Grey cardstock by just rubbing the pad across it.
I also sponged around the sentiment piece.
DON'T FORGET: You can order partylite on my online show until Sunday, January 13. See the previous post for information.
ALSO NOTE: I no longer have the SU order online button to the right, but if you go to the SU site you can put my name in as your demo and still receive the better price.

Another tuft quilt

Here is another version on the faux tuft quilt. I think I like this one better. I used SU's diagonal score plate to score the lines then softly using a sponge dauber, sponged down each line, using a small circular motion. I finished the card just like the one I posted yesterday.

My next trial for this technique will be to stamp faux stitching in the creases (or ditches as we say in quilting).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Faux Quilt Tuft

After not being able to find instructions for this, I decided to try it on my own. I took a sheet of acetate and a sponge dauber, sponging off the acetate at regular spacing (well, sort of) to form the squares. I then repeated the same idea in the opposite direction.

Then a fellow demo found this video for me, although mine has more of the base color (white):

SU Supplies used:
     Cardstock: Whisper White and Calypso Coral
     Apothecary Stamp Set
     Calypso Coral Ink Pad
     Labels Collection Framelits
     Window Sheet
