recent projects

This should be safe to post now, Jan's birthday was Thursday... and she sent me this stamp for my birthday and I used it to make her birthday card...
this scallop oval with the embossed (lace looking edge) is from a multi pack of tags from Martha Stewart found at Micheal's. there is some blush blossom marker on some of the embossed dots.
I keep finding my self needing simple note cards ones that would be easy to let go of and to send other things in the mail. so I am in two secret santa swaps this season and one of my peeps was wishing for some embellishment that I found this Unity stamp in the same store so i bought it to hit the free shipping level... (yeah yeah i know i know) funny thing, this stamp the wood is like 1/4 inch thick. so i am sitting it on the table and putting the inked rubber up and just walking my fingers around on it. its not something that feels like you can hold and press it. these are all A-2 in real life. versafine vintage sepia ink on (the new pink from su) Sahara Sand and blush blossom cardstocks. Prima Flowers, MM green Buttons, DMC embroidery floss, Sentiments from Memory Box.
Did 6 of these all together.
This is an PIF image swap from Menolly13 (Thanks Melissa) its from Whiff of Joy called Willow with Cocoa. ( Oh i am in deep love with this line, have not caved and ordered any yet though) :) she's colored with prisma pencils. this was done with the scraps on the table from the card i did for June the other day. sentiments from A Muse. its 6 Inches Square in real life.
now this was done just messing around, Tim says they are all the same card. ( its a close call) the Holly Chickadee is from Impression Obsession, the Sentiments from the Joanns 1$ bin. the red column cs is from Neenah Papers. the cream with black sentiments pp is from ah will have to go flip one over later and edit, the darker pp with text is from K & Co. the black is from bazzill, each of these has a different black lace or trim on them the bird circle is up on popdots over the red scallop mat. the sewing is slightly different from card to card also. these are 5 1/2 ish in real life.
cluster view of the 6 cards.
I had to laugh a week or so ago, i got an email from Alice that she had finally made her self place an online order (all by her self) and what was her downfall you ask? what made her do it? well mice of course... this is one of Alice's new House Mouse stamps. ( I don't know its name sorry and feeling too lazy to go research it) its stamped on su ww and colored with prisma pencils, the sentiments from Karen Lockhart stamps, the polkadot flower is from Prima, the buttons vintage, the hemp strings from a ball found in the bead isle at walmart, the swiss dots sheer ribbon is probably May Arts but, don't remember anymore. the pp is from Sandy lion. the red cs is from Su ridinghoodred. the cardbase is PaperTrey Ink's white.
this was done with the grass stamp from Inspired by nature, stamped with always artichoke on river rock cardstock... then i ran a scrap through the cuttlebug folder and inked it the same color, then wanting the bird to POP painted it with Shimmerz paint that Jan gave me for my birthday. so the color of the bird is a little off on this green but its still interesting i guess. the cuttlebuged pieces is up on pop dots over the stamped background. Now I did mention i am in these secret swaps yes, and one of my peeps said her favorite holiday is Christmas and so i thought ok what do you make someone who probably has everything she wants... ( people tend to collect things they love right?) so one idea i had was to make gift tags for her to use incase she needs more it always seems like you need to put together some last minute things every year right? so I've made a few of them and these and the ones below are some of them. (most are in her box and wont be photographed by me though)
