I am soon done

I sure am having fun playing with the cuttlebug and embossing folders, along with my spellbinder dies.  Some of the cards I got finished today show that.

Christmas is on its way

And am I very behind this year.   I started making Christmas cards a month ago and only have 10 done.  I am half way there.   I am really happy with these cards I made using Basic Grey Wassail line.   I used Stampin Up stamps, gold stickles, misc ribbon and inking to embellish these cards.

Thanks for looking

National Card Making Day

Whoopee…..I just may be out of my scrapbooking slump.  I was over to my friend’s Connie’s place today and we played all pm and part of the evening making cards.  I only got two of them complete but am very happy with both of them.  One I used Oxford Collections stamps and the other I used American Crafts Glitter cuts on it.

Stephanie’s Lovebug class

I had a blast last night on Lovebug.  Stephanie thaught us how to make a gift bag.  Although mine is not the same as hers, I am pretty happy with it and I plan to make some more.  Woo hoo…..thanks Stephanie.

Nice for a small gift

I had a blast using my penguin stamp, embossing, using my spellbinders circles, ribbon, prima flower, brad as well as stickles and sakura pen to complete this project.

New card

bassed on sketch by Deanne Burton

Last night I couldn’t sleep so I played around with a sketch by Deanne Burton on Creative Scrappers and came up with this card.   I embossed my stamped image (Imagination) and added Sakura Glaze pens for colours in the flowers and the scalloped edge.  I also used Daisy D “Smile” Stamp and added Kaiser Craft pearls for an embellishment.  I took some white sheer ribbon and ran it over the ink pad I used for the flower to come up with the same colour.  I achieved this by using a pencil to hold the ribbon against the ink and went through the ink twice to pick up the colour.   I also inked the edges of my card and the squares.  The square are also lifted with pop dots to give it dimension.

 

Disappointed

I just received two roller doodles from Glitz Designs. I have tried them out with craft and dye ink and am a bit disappointed. I find the quality of the product to be cheap plastic and the roller itself does not have much of a raised impression. When I applied them to paper, the ink would run out before I could do a 12″ strip and also the ink would get on the sides and leave line ridges beside the stamped image. I only paid $4.39 for each of them. In my humble opinion, I would not recommend them. I don’t know if being left handed makes them not run as smoothly. Just stating my 2 cents worth.
