Finally some new things to post...

I have finally gotten around to loading some pictures onto my computer, so I have some new cards to show. These are the three cards we did for our August Stamp Club.
This first card is cased from one in the August Stampin Success. I love the new In Colors! The scallop punch is also a new favorite!

I also love these new lazer cut easy to make a beautiful card! For this card, we used the brayer with Kiwi Kiss, and then embossed with whisper white over the top. I like the uneven color of the brayed background, kindof shabby chic???

I have seen a few cards using vellum as a cup and I was excited to put my twist on it. There is a tutorial on SCS, give it a try! On this last card we embossed again~ the sentiment, but also the brads at the bottom. Have you ever embossed on brads? I was excited to share that new technique, one I often forget about, but works great to use materials on hand to coordinate with different projects. And so easy! Just dip your brad in Versamark Ink, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat! Just make sure you have tweezers or something to hold onto your brad-it gets hot!

I hope my Stamp Girls had fun, and I hope you like the projects too!! Thanks for looking!

The New Catalog is Here!!

I, like many of you, have been anticipating the release of the new Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book and Catalog...well the wait is over!! Beginning August 11 orders can be placed! There are so many fun things in this book, I don't even know where to start! It definately has put me into a fall/winter/Christmas frame of mind though...and oh how I LOVE those new In Colors!

Some Past Projects

I will be the first to admit that I am ridiculous, I have often made projects to submit for challenges but never actually get around to posting them...I am trying to be better.
