Howl Thank You

Here is the card that I wanted to make something humor.

Paper: white cardstock

Markers: Stampin' Up - Mint Melody, Mellow Moss, Creamy Carmel, Close to Cocoa, Pale Plum and Apricot Appeal

Ink pad: Paintbox ink

Accessories: Firm brayer, post-it for masking, Rope repositionable alphabitties, Close to My Heart - Acrylix clear stamp "Atomic Caps"

Stamps: Desert by Taylored Artwork, Wolf by Rubber Stampede

Stamp both with black ink on each post-it and cut them out. Stamp the Wolf with black ink on the white cardstock first. Use the Wolf cut out post-it on top of the stamped Wolf. Stamp the desert with black ink on top of the masking wolf. Put the desert cut out post-it over the stamped desert on the cardstock. You can snap off at the bottom of the Paintbox ink pad and change around the color pad before using the firm brayer and roll over the Paintbox ink pad. Then roll over on the top of the maskings back and forth. Repeat it till you get the color right. The fun part is peeling off the maskings. Color with markers. Stamp the clear alphabets with black ink - THANK YOU. Use the rope respostionable alphabitties - 0 on the last four. Inside the card - "Howl I ever repay you?"

Stripe Thank You

I wanted to play around with the new dies that I collected a few weeks ago. Spellbinders Nestabilities - classic scalloped ovals large. I used the largest scalloped oval and the Quikutz frame. I added ribbon on the top and bottom of the card. Stickles lime green glued around the scallop to make it sparkled. Pink self-adhesive gem on the dot of the first i.

Thanks a Bunch!

I used three different colors of Stampin' Up cardstocks. Colored with Stampin' Up markers on the picture stamp. Embellished with pink flowers and crystal self-adhesive gems. Crystal Sticklers glitter glue around the frame.

Warms my Heart

The front paper I purchased it from Archiver's so I decided to do something with it. The paper felt like it was glossy because I had trouble using Staz-On Jet Black ink with the embossing black powder. It won't stick. Tinted embossing ink worked well with embossing black powder. At the bottom of the card, I used Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" border punch with crystal self-adhesive gems.

Mini Kaleidoscope

I want to display the mini symmetrical patterns. Stampin' Up 'Simple Delight' set and deep blue and red self-adhesive gems. QuicKutz 'Scallop Circle' die on the cuttlebug. One of the 3-D ink glaze markers (purple) on the edge of the scallop circle. Glue red ribbon on top and bottom of the card.

Birthday Cow

I thought it would be cute to show the birthday cow card. Stampin' Up cardstock - Pink Passion. Stamp - "Ann-ticipations" cow. Color with Stampin' Up markers. Pink gemstone on the bell. Microsoft Word font - Kristen ITC with Bold on "HERD IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY".

Stamp Room

I thought I would share pictures of my stamp room. I always find ways to organize all of my accessories and papers.
