There You Are
Topic: Stamping

For this stamp I used one of the Nestabilities label dies to cut and emboss its edges. Then I distressed the edges with Broken China distressing ink. Th backing piece is more of my paste paper and it overlays a blue folded card base, also distressed with Broken China ink. 

The circle text is a cardstock sticker.

Happiness With You
Topic: Stamping

The framing piece for this stamping, colored with watercolor pencils, is a piece of paste paper I made a long time ago. I punched the corners and cut an aperture with a Nestabilities die. Orange floral brads adorn the corners and an orange folded card serves as the base. 

Two cardstock stickers furnish the text.

Doodles Here, Doodles There
Topic: Stamping

I love junk mail. That's where I got this beautiful purple/blue background cardstock. I used Nestabilities round to cut the hole for the watercolor penciled floral to be mounted behind and then cut both together with the scallop die. I used a smaller scallop die for the text circle. The text is a stamp.

After mounting to white folded cardstock, with foam dots, the card was too plain so I started doodling with a fine-line marker. Dots, dashes, squiggles, and lines brought it all together.

Glamorous Iris
Topic: Stamping

Choosing to color the iris stamp pink was the set-up for this card. I had some shiny pink paper that I embossed with a Fiskars texture plate in the Cuttlebug and cut both panels with square scallop Nestabilities dies. 

These are mounted to a pink folded card base along with a glossy text sticker.

Pink Partridge
Topic: Stamping

Not your traditional Christmas colors, but pretty, I think. I colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a water brush. Handmade paper was crumpled and torn as a backing with button brads at the corners.

Kraft cardstock is folded as a base and a round thick acrylic sticker was centered over the tree trunk.

Peace Arch
Topic: Stamping

I had a great background paper to use with this stamped image and decided to use it as a shape to look like more glass. I drew in some random lines to simulate leading. Then I used yellow distress ink to brush the edges.

I cut the yellow folded card base to an echoing shape. 


The text is a clear sticker.

Glowing Thanks
Topic: Stamping

This stamp was colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a water brush. A yellow border sets it off from the background made with alcohol ink and metallic marker on glossy cardstock. Another yellow layer borders this over the purple folded card base. 

I used a yellow Sharpie on a glossy sticker and applied that to the finished card.

How to Stay Alive
Topic: Dry Embossing

Another brass stencil impression in the Cuttlebug results in this panel, kept square this time. I did use a corner punch for a bit of interest and then used purple heart brads to hold it to scrapbook paper.

I distressed the edges with purple and then with a rough edge. 

The text is a clear sticker and all is placed on a white folded card base.

Do What You Love
Topic: Stamping

I used a Fiskars texture plate in the Cuttlebug to make an overall pattern on the shiny paper, then a Spellbinders die to cut the aperture and a punch for the decorative corners. This was all mounted over a stamped image colored with watercolor pencils.

I used a Sharpie marker to doodle around the circle and the outside.

The text is a cardstock sticker.

Soft Flight
Topic: Dry Embossing

I used a brass stencil in the Cuttlebug to emboss the butterfly panel. I used Fiskars border punch on more of the same material. These were placed over and under the striped scrapbook paper.

Some of those new Fiskars zings were placed along the side and two sizes of stickon rhinestones added.

Ribbon with tripple knots is tied at the spine of the folded card base.

Cherishing Hearts
Topic: Dry Embossing

Silver metallic paper was dry embossed with a brass stencil in the Cuttlebug. Then I used a Spellbinders label die to cut it out and mounted it on a red scrapbook paper cut with another die. I got some new Fiskars stickons called zings and used three sizes of red hearts on the embossed hearts. Then I added some red stickon rhinestones.

After attaching to a pink folded card base I added a thick clear sticker with text.

Silver Fortune
Topic: Dry Embossing

I used my hand cut brass stencil in the Cuttlebug to emboss on this metallic silver paper. After cutting around it I used two tones of pink alcohol ink on a felt pad to add interest. The background is a printed cardstock from a small pad of them and I liked the asian feel that it added to the Kanji. 

I tied a thin ribbon at the spine of the folded card base and hand lettered the text. "Good Fortune and Happiness" are the two meanings for the character.

Here you can see the effect of the alcohol inks.

Round About
Topic: Paper Embroidery

The challenge on one of my groups was to make a card of a different shape. I guess 'round' is not too original, but I've never made a round card before and I already had the bib stitching done. The fold of the round card base is under the bow which overhangs it. 

At the last I decided to cut out the neckline to create a little aperture and I stamped the text on the bib front.

Ins and Outs
Topic: Paper Embroidery

I've been seeing a lot of people using this card structure (Tri-Shutter Fold) and wanted to give it a try for myself. In response to an assignment on group to combine paper embroidery with folding on a card, it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

This is the card folded up as it fits into the envelope.

Here is a view with it opened as it would be when on display.

And this is the view with the card fully opened.

On Display
Topic: Field Trip

After that long string of making card with each of my hand-carved rubber stamps this is the result. I built a display out of foam-core board and poster board using straightpins to hold it all together. It comes apart into two side-by-side sections for transport. 

Each shelf has multiple cards, each with its stamp in front of it. This was to show the viewers the beginning and the end of the project.

I did a little presentation talking about the basic process - tools, transfers, materials, and uses. It was well received.

A Little Hug For Your Coffee
Topic: Sewing

 I found a fabulous little book called "Pretty Little Cozies" that has patterns and instructions for making cozies for an amazing variety of things. The one that really interested me was the cover piece - a cozy for a french press coffee maker.

But they used a totally patchwork background with folk-art flowerpots, butterflies, etc. I really wanted to do a chicken theme for my D-I-L. Unfortunately, chicken fabric seems to be 'out of fashion' this season so I ended up drawing my own birds, cutting them out of a variety of fabrics and stitching them to an 'egg' printed background. I did applique decorative stitching with embroidery thread.

So, here's the piece in whole:

This is how it will look on the press, Viewing the side with the two hens.

This is the side with the rooster:

 


Her is a closeup of the hens. You can see the stitching better in this shot. Notice that the hens have blue beads for their eyes and I gave the lower girl a few 'seed beads' to peck at.

Here is the closeup of the rooster. He is much more colorful than the ladies! Notice the green fabric I used for 'grass'. Love this!

 

Hope you enjoy!
