Hello


Playing along with a couple of challenges, the inspiration photo from Cure For The Monday Blues is very interesting. I had fun with my card using the peg board, pink, and yellow as my inspiration. I wanted to use a sweet hanging tag, like something hanging from the peg board. The cute tag stamp is from Clearly Besotted....adorable! I used the sketch from Freshly Made, sweet CAS card and lots of fun! Add a little glimmer to your life.....sparkle & shine!

I have created this card using my new stencils from Simon Says Stamp called Seeing Spots Stencil Set.  I also used my new Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine....LUV...I sprayed it on the stencil and then smoothed it out with a sponge for a not so polished look...LUV! I used the My Favorite Things Stamp set, Smile. I had fun with this card using the black, gold, and pink color combo....if you would have asked me a year ago to use gold I would have folded...lol. I have really embraced gold and I must say I truly luv it! Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine!

Let me start by saying, the using texture is one of my favorite techniques; I could seriously use texture all the time. I really get into the process of texture and more than that, I cannot take my eyes off the card once it is complete. I have used lots of different forms of texture, some are very subtle; but for me that is what I like best! On my card today I have used texture in lots of ways, embossed background, torn edges on white piece, curled down corner with a tiny piece of patterned paper to draw your attention(LUV THIS), Wendy Vecchi embossing paste, rolled edge of flower, 3d foam dots, gemstones, and glossy accents. Boy, wasn't that fun, I know I luv finding new ways to achieve texture, I cannot wait to see what you create this week! Add a little glimmer to your life.....sparkle & shine!

Just A Quick Note



I luv when challenges fall together sooooo perfectly, I was inspired by the Curtail Call donut holes, the colors, and the sprinkles. The CAS(E) this sketch was perfect for cutting out the hole, I used multi colors and Tim Holtz white stain spritz and a few silver beads for sprinkles, soooo cute! The colors today from SCS where a wide range, I used three of them; mint, coral, and kraft. Have you heard of Cards For A Cause? We donate unused cards to organizations so that they can give them to others, to encourage and give thanks. It is very rewarding and heartwarming. You can find out more about it and join us for the fun here! Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine!
