Here's another sneaky peak. This set uses Dasher, page 20 and Many Merry Messages, page 41 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog.

Background Paper

Again, I made my own background paper for this card. I used Liquid Applique for the center of the flower. It is so.....puffy. I like it. What do you think? Too busy?

Stamp set: Friends Never Fade
Paper & Ink: Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: 5/8 grosgrain chocolate ribbon

Color Challenge

So I decided to do this weeks color challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage. This is Curtain Call 35 and it was certainly a challenge for me. The most challenging part was incorporating the Tempting Turquoise. As you can see, I drew swirls on the background. The stamp set is a Hostess Level 1. It is a set of 5 and you can get it for free by hosting a qualifying workshop. Stop by my Stampin' Up! web site for other great ideas.

The background for this page was made using the July Fourth set on page 28 of the summer mini catalog. This is a great way to create background paper with stamps.

Jewelry Gift Tin

It has certainly been a long time since my last post. I assure you that I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have been creating, scrapbooking, and card making but haven't been able to post anything until now.

The inside is lined with batting which cushioned a Pandora bead for my daughters birthday. I punched ten scalloped circles, crumbled them up then lined one on top of the other and put a brad through the center, at which point I folded the layers up. These flowers are all over the web and so easy to make. The leaves were created using the Big Shot. The ribbon trim is Old Olive.
