Heather's Moonlighting Technique

I was over at Heather's Oz-some blog and was enticed by her post about the moonlighting technique. I decided to give it a try following her sample. I loved the color combo she used and did the same thing. I used a tree from the Good Timber (T-2700) stamp set, which I really love. I think it turned out nice.. very similar to Heather's but still me. Check out Heather's blog for instructions. I used my new Cuttlebug embossing border set, With Love, for the sentiment. I love using the Matchmakers white core paper when I emboss so I can sand it and have the white core show through. I also added the border around the image with my scorpal and sanded the ink away as well.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Cute Giraffe

Hi Everyone!
I'm finally back from delivering my baby girl to college.. bitter sweet experience even though I know she is starting the greatest adventure of all!

Aside from demonstrating for TAC I am also a teacher at a local scrapbook store and teach card making and stamping. I had to do a make-n-take for an upcoming event and wanted to share it with you. I have to use only store products so I can't use my beloved TAC stamps or papers but I still manage to create with all the other great stuff out there in scrapping land. ;-)

I only have 15 minutes to demo and have the students make the card so I have to keep it simple but fun. I've had this little Giraffe stamp for some time and wanted to use it. He's just so cute! I love the way the colored pencils bring out the texture of the Bazzill cardstock. I thought it looked very giraffe-y.... What do you think?

Supplies used: Stamp- Imaginisce, Pattern paper-Bo Bunny, cardstock- Bazzill, dewdrops, punches, Prisma colored pencils

Hi everyone!
I doubt there are many of you out there checking my blog but for those of you kind enough to be interested I wanted to let you know that I won't be posting a new entry for a few days. My family and I have gone to take our daughter to college. We should be back next week so look for a new entry then!

Just Dream Orange

I love the Just Dream stamp set from TAC. I love these happy angels- so perfect for coloring! I again used the Prisma colored pencils blended with Goo Gone technique I mentioned earlier- Like I said.. I'm addicted! I added stickles to her wings to make them sparkle and sponged the white area with a blend of oranges and purple to make it less stark. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Just Dream T-2953, Miss Moxie paper V-842, Bazzil Paper, ribbon, Pastel Princess Brads F-930, Stickles,
Noir Palette Ink

Butterfly Bits and Catelynn

I hope you are on the way to having a wonderful weekend! I stayed up late last night letting those creative juices flow and this card was the result.

I love our new stamp set Butterfly Bits and wanted to create something with it. I was drawn to the fresh colors of Catelynn paper collection. I used buttons and flowers from the Ava Embellishment jar, Our new super jumbo flower punch ,which I love and am using all the time now, and some scrappers floss- another newer discovery that I am having fun with! Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you!

Rockin Roxie Card

This is one of the cards we made at my Rockin Roxie Matchbook Album class from some of the left over pattern paper. I had to keep the cards simple and easy since the class took some time. We use the Starburst Florals (T-2866) stamp set which coordinates the Miss Moxie and Rockin Roxie papers and a GWP stamp from the previous catalog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rockin Roxie Matchbook Album

The Angel Company has some fabulous matchbook album kits that are so quick and easy to put together and embellish. I did a workshop a few months back and we made the Rockin Roxie Matchbook Album. I extended the album pages by cutting matching pages from the Miss Moxie cardstock collection doubling the size of the album and leaving me with some extra pattern paper to add to cards. It was a lot of fun and I think it turned out really nice.. hope you enjoy!

Supplies: Rockin Roxie Matchbook Kit V-841, Miss Moxie Cardstock B-319, Starburst Florals T-2866, Floral Labels T-2932, F is For Family ( retired), More Abundance T-2775, eyelets, clear acetate F-47, Cotton White Stazon ink S-8110, L'Amour Red Palette Ink TT-195, ribbons

I am Featured on the Angel Company Website!!

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm so excited! TAC just updated their main website and as I was browsing the Featured Artwork section ( in the Creative Corner link) I saw that one of my contest submissions made it up on the site! You can view it here. I created a set of 4 3 x 3 note cards featuring the Squiggle Lady Bug Set (T-2153). I sent it in several months back so I was really surprised to find it today.

Here's a little teaser:

If you have a moment stop by and see all the other great projects and artwork too. I'm always inspired by the creativity of my fellow Angels!

Have a fantastic weekend!
