Bee Mine

I saw this set in the new Idea Book and Catalog and just HAD to have it! I just love the little bees in this set. They are so cute! It also reminds me of my friend Bonny who loves bees.

Recipe: Stamps- Just Buzzin' ByPaper - sahara sand, whisper white, more mustard, chocolate chip, more mustard dsp. Ink-chocolate chip, more mustard. Acessories - 1/4" chocolate poly twill ribbon, 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon, dazzling diamonds.

This next card is one of the valentines that I made for the SCS VSN Mini this past weekend. The challenge for this card was to use the burnt batik embossing technique. This was the first time I tried this technique and I'm not sure if it turned out exactly right but it's pretty cute none the less!

Recipe: Stamps- Happy Heart Day, Wow Flowers. Paper - whisper white, real red. Ink - pink passion, real red, close to cocoa. Acessories - chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, pretties kit brad.

1st Ever Technique Tuesday

Tonight was my first Technique Tuesday class. It went pretty well if I do say so myself. The technique for tonight was scratch n 'sniff cards. Everyone really liked the technique and thought it was pretty cool. I showed my "students" how to make lemon scented embossing powder and then we used it to make the scratch n 'sniff element for our technique card. We then made a birthday card using the technique and strawberry scented embossing powder. Here is the card that we made using our technique. Stay tuned the next few days to see some Valentine's Day cards that I was working on this weekend.

Recipe: Paper- pretty in pink, cameo coral, whisper white, raspberry tart designer series paper. Ink - Versamark, cameo coral, kiwi kiss. Accessories - dimensionals, 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon, strawberry scented embossing powder.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a good one. Now that Christmas is over I can show you one of my favorite cards that I made for the NOV08 challenge "This Costume's a Cinch!" on SCS. I gave this card to my sister along with a Victoria's Secret gift card to my sister for her birthday - which was on Christmas Eve. She thought it was pretty cute.

I've been up in Minnesota the past two weeks spending time with family and friends, which has been nice don't get me wrong. I have one problem though. All of my stamp and paper crafting stuff is in Nevada! I did bring a few things to work on but those are finished and I keep thinking of all the cute stuff I could be working on. :( Sad I know! So for the next two days I will try to keep enjoying time with my family and friends until I return to my family and friends I have in Nevada.
