Final touch was to add a couple of thin strips of the card stock between the stamped image and the embossing and I was all done.

Using Labels 7 from Spellabinders, I cut the black and the gold layers. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock using black this time because I liked it better than in the gold - it reinforced the black layer I had cut.
This is a card that could easily be done in school colors to make it more personal.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest addition............come back again soon!

This was a very quick and easy card to make and I liked how the sentiment went so well with the star background. It's also pretty safe to use for any graduate if you don't know their school colors.
Thanks for stopping by...................hope you come back again soon!

Tucker (age 4) - ALL BOY!
View the video and you'll see a future NASCAR driver.
I have been absent for three days but I haven't been goofing off. If you viewed the video you'll see who has been keeping me busy. Except for about 4 hours on Saturday, we had these two grandchildren from Thursday morning until yesterday about Noon. Oh how I wish I had their energy. :)

The background on this card was made using one of the Fiskar plates that looks like waves. The image was done with a brass stencil on sticky paper and then sprinkling on the gold. However after I sprinkled it on and removed the stencil, I realized I had mistakenly used I had accidentally used embossing powder. Before I heat embossesd it, I sprinkled on Crystal glitter to the remainder of the sticky paper and then heated the gold embossing powder. I was glad that it still worked out fine.
This layer was then mounted onto some gold paper and then onto the card base.
Sorry if this is a little confusing -- concentration is difficult with two little ones chattering at me and "needing" things. :) They are sure a lot of fun though.
Thanks for stopping by...........just email me if you have any questions about how this was done.

The stamped designs are from the SU Autumn Days set and were stamped with the SU Chocolate Chip ink. I really liked this set but hadn't used it yet and decided it would work with the striped paper I have. It was just too plain so I punched a Martha Stewart butterfly and thought that would be enough of an embellishment on this one.

The punched edge of the pastel yellow layer was made with a Martha Stewart punch and the stripe was a scrap I had of the striped paper and I hate to waste such pretty papers.
Sorry if this isn't one of my more organized postings, but I figured the picture was pretty self-explanatory.
Hope everyone has a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY tomorrow. We will be having a family gathering. And remember even if you do not have children of your own, all of you who nuture others should be celebrated as well!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is another card I made for Mother's Day using a Dreamweaver stencil and embossing paste. I colored the image with a stiple brush and SU inks. I then applied the embossing paste and when I removed the stencil, I added the crystal glitter. The embossed edge had been done before I added the design.
Thanks for stopping by.

I have a granddaughter here today. She is in Kindergarten and because of Kindergarten Roundup for the next year's class, she doesn't have school today.
Today's card doesn't need a lot of explanation. The only thing that doesn't show up very well is that I used my Scor-Pal to make the diagonal lines on the card base. I think the rest of the card speaks for itself. The stamp is from Penny Black.
Thanks for stopping by!

Next I put the stencil back onto the white layer and masked off the entire area around the stencil. I stippled red and green chalk into the design and then very carefully applied Dreamweaver Translucent Embossing Paste. After removing the stencil, I shook Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter over the wet paste. This had to be put aside until the paste was completely dry.
When the embossing paste was dry, I adhered the white layer to the card base and then made the "Happy Mother's Day" piece and popped it on the front.
I feel the Black ink was just a little too bold for that design but I still like the card. Thanks for stopping by. Your comments on the blog are always appreciated!

Recently I was enabled by a friend to get a Cuttlebug alphabet die set for a real bargain so the first thing I did with it was to cut the letters for this card.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you come back again soon. :)

I stamped the design using a VersaMagic ink pad and then added Crystal Stickles to the buds.
The card doesn't take any more explanation than that. I have more to post using these papers so keep watching. :)
