Little Prince

Here is another one that I made with stamps that I have never use.  I also tried a new technique.   I first stamped my image with versamark, then used black embossing powder.  Then I colored with watercolor crayons.  The coloring is not the greatest, I should have used watercolor paper instead of Shimmery white.

Stamps: Frog - Snag 'Em Stamps by Imaginisce , Mixed Messages - PTI
Ink: Versamark, Old Olive - SU
Cardstock: Kraft - SU, Old Olive - SU, Bording Blue - SU, Shimmery White - SU,
Accessories: Cuttlebug, nesties, martha stewart scallop punch & ribbon, buttons, half pearl bling, watercolor crayons - SU, aquapen

Stacey's frame

 I made this for my Sister-in-law. We did Christmas Wishes instead of giving presents and this was what she wanted me to do for he .  I made with the colors that match her house.  Her house is all earth tone colors.  This was the only paper that I could find that matched all the colors.   She seemed to really like it.

I pick up a bunch of these frames at Michael's when ever they go on sale for $1.50.  They are such I quick project.  Finished project cost no more then $3.

Celebrate and Sympathy bird

 This were a couple of cards that needed to make.  The first one was for my Aunty Joni congradulations card in January.  She got Married.  And the Second I made for Kyle's sister whom needed a sympathy card.

As I was making these, I thought it was odd that the same card could represent 2 totally different occasions.

Ink: Versamark, versafine
Accessories: embossing powder, nesties, half pearls, ribbon

Cricut Cutting with Deep Blade

 I was inspired by a card that we made in card class and the fact that I need to try out the deep cutting blade that I bought for my self on my Birthday.  I really like my cricut, but find that I am not using it that much.   Has any one tried to use their vinyl line?  I would really like to get the new home decor card and try it out.

Acetate sheet, cricut, deep cutting blade, DP, ribbon, Say it with Scallops stamp set from SU, real red ink.

Cut out the shape with Cricut, assemble, I use scor-pal tape on anything I can.  I love the fact that you can just tear the tape and not have to use scissors.

You can get the tape at 7 Kids College Fund

Box for Basic Grey Bling

 I was surfing on Clearly Delightful and Laurie made a super cute box for her new Basic Grey Bling.   Well not only did I make the box, I went and bought the bling from Clear Dollar Stamps.  There are so many different colors, shapes and pearls, and they are not expensive at all.  Yup I order all the ones that I liked and they all fit in this box.

Laurie's tutorial is very good.  Please go check it out.
