Accordian Fold for the Cuttlebug Fab Fridays

I saw this fold done on Fab Fridays at the Cuttlebug blog, had to give it a try & really enjoyed making these folds.

Flowers Resist

This is a resist technique I did using cream cs for a change, I always seem to use white.

Club House

I colored this image over a year ago when I first got my Copics & decided to finally make a card with it.

Inspire - Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

This is my card for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, this week they called for 3D & of course some stamping. This card is going to a very special friend who is moving to Germany. She loves to read, her books & her 4 cats who are moving with her. At the ripe young age of 66 she is starting a new life, born & raised in CA, she has decided to work for the military as a counsellor, thus the big move to Germany for at least 2 years. I'm so excited for her & of course wishing her the very best on her new endeavor. Oh, there is a cat but it's on the inside, so you can't see it.

Faux Silk

This was my first attempt at faux silk though rather than stamping on the tissue, I stamped the flowers on cs, colored then went over them with my versa pen & embossed with clear ep. I stamped the script over the flowers & sponged in the background using yellow, peach & brown inks. I finished by crinkling the tissue, applying glue stick to the cs & smothed the tissue over it. I did add a little glitter to the flower centers on top of the tissue but that's a little hard to see here.

This stamp is from TAC, she is so adorable & I thought she'd be good to use for a sunflower swap.

Slumber Party

This was just a fun card to do with my freebie from High Hope stamps, it was begging to be inked & colored.

Red, White & Black

Now this is my second entry to a challenge today & I haven't done any before. This one is over at Artful Inkables, one of my favorite stamp companies, not only are their stamps adorable but very well cut & very well packaged, you get good service too. I didn't use any of their stamps even though I do have quite a few, I was just playing around & this is what I came up with so decided to just go for it.

Garden Bear

This is a card I did for my first challenge ever to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. It called for a bear & some stamping, well the bear is stamped, he's an old image from PSX, & the saying is stamped, that one is from High Hopes stamps.

Lil Miss Dressup

Is she not just too cute & oh so fun to color. I added flower soft to her wrap & flower on her hat to get a little texture. Another cutie from High Hopes.

Here's the Dirt

This little guy is from High Hope Stamps, a freebie I received with my order, he was just begging to be inked up & colored with my copics.


This is part of a set I got at CDS, 4 cats with some cute sayings. I sponged in the backgrounds, the black card was stamped with white staz-on, then colored with colored pencils.

This has got to be one of my favs, I just love the expression on her face. This is another High Hope Stamp.

Down on the Farm

I finally received my long awaited order from High Hope Stamps but it was well worth the wait besides getting some of the most adorable images, Tina added quite a few freebies for the inconvenience. Its sad for me, as of today they will be wholesale only & there are so many of their stamps I still have on my wish list. Guess I'll just have to find who's selling them retail now.

Joseph's Coat Technique

I was playing around with Joseph's Coat Technique, it's been a really long time since I tried that one & this is what I came up with.
