Christmas Open Book

The book is made with Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty-Three. I embellished the book with the Spellbinders Poinsettia and fern leaves, setting on a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die cut, made with Gold paper. I made the stick pins and the center of the poinsettia is Recollections flat-backed rhinestones. The sentiment is JustRite Stamp embossed on a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and backed with a larger Labels Eighteen, the beads are flat-backed Recollections.

Framed Labels Eighteen - 3D M-Bossabilities

This card was a challenge, as it is a different sized than I am used to making. The card size is determined by the 3D M-Bossabilities folder. 

The jury is still out on this card, as it is totally different than I usually make.

More Butterfly Cards - different colors

Love making these cards, it's the first time I fussy cut that turned it out okay. I think all the bling covers up the imperfections, but that makes it "handmade."

Butterfly Birthday Cards for an order

 The background is an embossing folder I got with my e-Bosser, (don't remember the name of it) I used the Belleek method and inked the negative. The Butterfly is a Hero Art stamp and I fussy cut it and attached bling I used Glossy Accents to attach the body and put foam dots to raise the wings. The Happy Birthday stamp is a Close To My Heart stamp. I corner-rounded the bottom corners. I cut the background of the butterfly with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Six and turned it slightly and used "this and that" foam dots to raise it. The edge die is from the Spellbinders Vintage Lace Accents set. I used Versa Color, Lilac and Celadon. The cards are made alike, except for the color.

 The insides I used the same background and edge die as the front. The stamp is JustRite and the die is JustRite-SpellbindersVintage Labels Four

Flourish Trim - I won from JustRite Stamps

6x6 card: The Merry Christmas stamp is a Close To My Heart stamp. I embossed it with white embossing powder (that looks more cream than white), which in this case, turned out great. I cut 2 of the Flourish Trims and placed them above and below the Merry Christmas. The Flourish Trim is a beautiful design, I am so blessed to have won the Friday Challenge over at JustRite stamps and receive this die.

The blue card is layered, but I did not layer the red one and I cannot decide which I like best.

Scrapers Collage

This collage is 14" x 18". These are fun to make, this is my 4th one. I have 2 to take to the
 Fall Craft Fair.

I took 2 pictures and posted both because I could see some things better in one and other things I could see in the 2nd picture better.

Christmas in July 2013

This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 step card with baby blue and gold embossing. I colored the little girl with water color pencils and outlined the die cut with Versa Color baby blue. The "Merry Christmas" is a Close to my Heart stamp, stamped in baby blue. The snow flakes were punch with The Paper Studio small punch.The sentiment in the center of the card is a JustRite stamp I embossed in Gold and edged with baby blue.

Book Marks

Another project for the Craft Show:

Face Masks

When I went for a follow-up to the doc after my Asthma attack, he told me I needed to wear a mask to go outside. And those are, I blinged them, indifferent colors to match my outfits. I even started making masks for asthma and cancer patients and will take them to my Craft Fair in October. One cancer patient is already enjoying hers.
