Off to Convention!

I will have TONS of ideas/pics to share when I get back Monday! Continue enjoying your summer... keep an eye out next week!


double line doodles "SPARKLE"

This is the inside of a scrapbook card showing my sister very delighted with her new ear-bling:) The cover pic shows her mid-piercing and my husband suggested that maybe she wouldn't appreciate it being on my blog:) Of course, he is probably right. This will be the make-and-take at my mom's workshop on Friday. After I figured it out, it was pretty easy to make! Faux-stitching using the paper pierced and white gel pen in the corner!


Stamps: double-line doodles, warm words
Ink: close to cocoa, wild wasabi, groovy guava
Paper: very vanilla, wild wasabi, groovy guava, so saffron
Accessories: saffron marker, paper piercer/mat pack, white gel pen


Happy Rhino!!

I LOVE this rhino, this Soft Sky designer series paper, the Blue Bayou, the rhinestone.... :) I think I still want to play with this card a bit but I like the basics of it. A little tweaking to be done before I create my swaps, lol. Super easy though!!

Stamps: Zoofari, Polka-dots and Paisley
Ink: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Paper: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky DSP, Whisper White
Accessories: Blender Pens, Ice circle rhinestone brads


Petal Polka Dots!!

Someone on splitcoast had the great idea of using Pick a Petal, but not actually using the petal stamps! Love these polka dots:) And I didn't think I would like these colors together, but I do! Made the card first and then turned it into a 6x6 scrapbook page for camp this weekend. I think I may make some of the 6x6 to swap with as well. The card will def be a swap, so cute!!


Stamps: Pick a Petal, Hugs and Wishes, Warm Words
Ink: Groovy Guava, River Rock, Blush Blossom
Paper: Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Groovy Guava, River Rock
Accessories: vanilla grosgrain, bone folder


Zoofari candle

This will be one of the projects we are making this weekend at my mini-stamp camp! I couldn't believe how easy it is to stamp on candles! Check out the instructions for how to do this from splitcoast's resource area:
I used Zoofari and my markers to make this! How FUN!! Love it:) Check out my SU! website to email or call if you want to join us Sat!

Stamps: Zoofari
Ink: Markers: green galore, so saffron, ballet blue, basic black
Paper: none
Accessories: tissue paper, wax paper, heat tool


Got this idea from splitcoast... so easy and cute! I have loved the celery and black cards I have been seeing recently, so I decided to try it with Pick a Petal (even though flowers aren't usually green). I think it turned out pretty cute. I love how quick this card was--directly stamped the petals and sentiment onto the whisper white , layered on black, punched out the middle with 1 1/4" circle punch, and added some brads!! I think this will be a great swap to make!! :)

Stamps: Pick a Petal, Hugs and Wishes
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Certainly Celery, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, dimensionals, soft and regal brads, 1/16" punch


Baroque Kindness

Okay... so this is REALLY not my style. But I do like this set, and this card turned out really well! I got the layout from someone on splitcoaststampers.com. I think this will be one of my swap cards for Denver.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Paper: Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Mellow Moss ribbon, tab punch


Zoofari Fun

Made this card last night for two little friends' birthday party... It was the first time I used Zoofari, Hugs and Wishes, Groovy Guava, and Blue Bayou!! Not terribly pleased with it (they are kind of floating... I didn't have time to mask), but it is definitely a fun set! I know one of my swaps for Convention will be with this one. AND I got Pick a Petal and Baroque Motifs yesterday! Maybe I will find some time to play this weekend! Hope you do too:) Stamp happy!

Stamps: Zoofari, Hugs and Wishes
Paper: Blue Bayou, Groovy Guava, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Brown, Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou
Accessories: sponge, dimensionals


Denver or bust!

My current project is starting on my swaps for Convention at the end of the month! I have signed up for a "stamp camp" swap, where I am in a group with 19 other people and each of us are making 20 projects to trade with each other. I hope to get some great ideas out of it! I am using Perfect Presentation and two of the In Colors: Wild Wasabi (love saying this name!!) and Purely Pomegranate. The end result will be a coffee filter album! Should be cute... I'll post the final project when I finish:) Love those rhinestone brads!
