November 22, 2014 Let it Snow

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.

November 17, 2014 Home Sweet Home

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.

November 11, 2014 Be Still

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.

November 4, 2014 Butterflies

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:

November 1, 2014 I support You

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.

October 26, 2014 Boo Eek Boo

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:

October 24, 2014 Shaped Stencils

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.
