Ok, like I mentioned in the last post...

  So, here are a few cards that I've made over the last several months and just didn't get a chance to post.

Oh Well, Dahlia

Well, Dalhia... It's about time I post something!

It's not that I haven't been stamping..... Because I HAVE!  I just haven't had time to post them to my blog...  But if you don't mind, nothing fancy... I'll just post a bunch of the items that I've been working on!  

This card uses several new items... Like the Honeycomb embossing folder, Chalk Talk Framelits, and Gold Foil Cardstock.  I love the candy dot in the center of the faceted button!

Stay tuned for some more

Oh Happy Day!

Yes, yes.... i know!  It has been ages!  Long time, no see... right?
Well, I have been stamping, just haven't been so good at up-dating my blog.  It's a new year, and I have a new stamp room... so hopefully, things will be a lot more up-to-date!  

Here's the latest card I've created.  It's called a Suspension Card.  The small heart in the center is hung there using some white thread.  You 'wind' up the small heart before you put it in the envelope, and the person receiving the card watches it spin when they open it up!

Not only do I have some pictures to show you...

       But..... I also have a video to go along with this.   It's a little 'rocky' in the beginning, but I really didn't feel like doing it over, so... here it is...

 Happy Stampin'

Dazzling Butterflies

Mondays!! BLAH!  However, there is one good thing about Mondays..... MOJO sketches!!! YEAH!!!
So, I needed a birthday card for a very good friend of mine... Barb, if you are reading this STOP!  :)  However, for those of you that aren't named Barb, you may continue!

I decided to go out of my comfort zone and challenge myself by using some colors that I wouldn't normally choose.. So my first place to stop is to see what kind of DSP I have in my stash.  I decided to play with International Bazaar.  This particular DSP uses Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Pool Party.  

The sentiment is from the My Friend stamp set and I used "out of the box" technique.  To achieve this look, stamp an image, and lightly draw a pencil box around your image, making it smaller then your actual image and cut around those pieces which overhang your box.  Then erase your pencil lines!  Seriously, it's THAT easy!

Here is a close up of the butterflies.  You can see the Dazzling Details that I added to the wings, and the Shimmer mist that I added to the smaller butterflies.

I made this card for my boss.  His wife is having twin Girls in December, so I wanted to make this card before the girls arrived.  This is based on the MOJO268 sketch.  I cut apart the retired 'Baby Time' wheel that I had laying around, and also the other retired 'Baby Rattle' jumbo wheel

Here's the inside of the card:

 This is the first time I have ever done paper piecing.  I've stamped the baby's bodies on DSP, and then cut out their little outfits.  Here's a close up: 
 I had a lot of fun with this card.  The sentiment is from Curly Cute and the circles were cut out using the Bigz dies Scallop Circle and Circle die.  The other two circles were the scallop circle punch, and the 1 1/2 inch circle.  The letters were diecut using the retired Billboard strip die from last year's catalog.  Seems like this card was a blast from the past!!

Hope you like it.

Happy Stampin'
