Last but not least...

I finally completed the last of my designs for an upcoming xmas card class.  I decided that it would be fun to make a shaker card using some chunky glitter.  I figured I could turn this gnome into a christmas gnome and coloured him like a santa.  I am happy with how it turned out.  Thanks for checking me out.

Boy card

Well we all know it is alot easier to do all things frilly and lacey but when it comes to boy cards, we kinda stumble.  I came across this stamp in my stash and just knew that this would do the trick.  I have never tried colouring with Distress Inks and my coworkers convinced me to try it out.  Wow, it really turned out well.  It takes a bit of practice getting the right amount of water on the aquabrush so it doesn't wet the paper too much but after some tries, it seemed successful.  I used the memory box die wreath (love this one!) and a paper doily for embellishments.  Hope you get some inspiration from this card.  I'm getting quite a collection now.  I don't want to give them up.  Thanks for coming by.  Happy stamping.

It's that time again....a little cheer, a little song

Well I've decided to offer an xmas card class at my workplace.  The class will consist of 4 different designs each person making two of each cards for a total of 8 cards.  In the past, I have offered making three cards of each but found it was taking over three hours to complete the projects.  So, I decreased it to two of each and everyone finished in a more decent time.  I have completed 3 of the 4 designs and will post the last one when it is completed.  I am thinking of a shaker type card for the last one.  As with all of my classes, the sentiments can be exchanged, the designer paper is often varied but the overall design is followed as my samples.  I have used glitter/dazzling diamonds/snow flock on each card so far.  It really adds sparkle and give a wintery feel to the cards.  I hope you get some inspiration from these cards and thank you for visiting.

I love this girl...

I just love these images of the beautiful girls in their traditional clothing.  I coloured her with copics and used an assortment of designer papers to accent her outfit, much like the previous post.  Thanks for checking her out.

Love this one....

Well, awhile back, my bestest SIL and I accidently got into the grapes and had a super duper time but paid for it the next day.  I found this image and I had a great chuckle because it reminded me of the time we spent together.  It is a digital image from Bugaboo's stamps and I just love it.  I coloured JJ with copics and used an assortment of designer papers to accent her lovely outfit.  Hope you like it and get a giggle out of it.
