Every month I do a 1-1 swap with Technique Junkies where you have to use a technique from Technique Junkies - well I have been a subscriber for many years so it is not hard for me to find a technique that I haven't tried - or one that I have tried and really enjoyed. This month my swap partner was a former angel - Carol Norby so I made this card for her - a zig zag accordian card with an easel on the back for sitting it up for display. My stamps are from AMuse Studio and SU - paper from my stash and then I got out my different sizes of snowflake punches and used some blue glitter paper for my snowflakes. Hope you enjoy Carol. Challenges: Divas by Design - snowy Moo-Mania - Trees Simply create Too - snow or all white - I used snowflakes/snow.
I needed a quick card to go in the mail today to send to a friend who just adopted a beautiful sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback Dog. Gracie will be in an amazing loving home. I used the 3 x 4 snap cards from the AMuse Studio and DP from DCWV - cardstock from AMuse. This was such a fun card to put together - stopped at PetCo and got a gift card for Gracie and the card went postal today.

This was one of my favorite cards that we made when my friend and stamping bud came down a couple of weeks ago - love the purple and gray together and so simple to put together. I think the stamp is from CTMH. Added a butterfly and the card was ready to go - I love to have these kind of cards ready when I have a special request from Chemo Angels.
Hope this meets the sketch requirements for this weeks Sketch Saturday - it was a little different than we are used to but did make me think a bit. I love this stamp (Impressions Obsession I think). I embossed it in peacock blue, added a little sentiment and some pearls and then to look for some DP, to my stash I went and I like how this kind of added a bit of additional color . Three little pearls and this card is ready to head off to someone who needs some angel cheer. Challenges: Sketch Saturday - follow sketch Brown Sugar Challenge - anything goes
Wanted to get this in for October Breast Cancer month but I think anytime is time to support breast cancer. I've had this stamp for a long time and used it a couple times in the past and it is still a go to favorite. It is from TAC stamps which is now out of business, but i love blinging it up - this one I did with pearls and sent it to a very special person who is going through breast cancer and has such a positive attitude. I did get a note from her after she received it and told me how much she appreciated the card. This will be one of those sets that will stay in my "archives" for a while.
I have yet to post a Halloween card so this is the only "new" one I made this year - my friend Patti came over a couple of weeks ago to stamp and this was one of her "projects and I love how it turned out, all products except the black velvet spider and black velvet paperare from AMuse Studio and I think it all came together so darn cute. This would be so easy to do for any holiday. Challenges: CRAFT - Halloween Sweet Stamps - anything goes Crafts for Eternity - Halloween
Every month I take part in a Technique Junkies 1-1 swap and we have to use one of the techniques from TJ. That is never a problem for me as I have been a subscriber for a very long time - unfortunately this is the newsletter last publication. I am hoping we will still continue the swap as I have gotten some very nice cards. The directions are always very easy to follow and I love seeing the creations that the DT has made using the technique. This technique was fun and got me to get out a couple of the stencils that I thought I "needed" but not yet used. Makes a very nice card. I am hoping my swap partner this month enjoys the card as much as I enjoyed making it.
I am a hopelessly addicted stamper. I retired from nursing in July 2013, a career that I loved. I am married to a guy that loves to fish as much as I love to craft (more stamping time for me) and we share our home with 2 big beautiful dogs - Bella and CoCo and 2 cats - Nikki and Calli.
