This is the card I made for the split-coast challenge for Friday. You were to make a card for a holiday of your choice. National _________ Day. I chose National Sunflower Day! I love, love, love sunflowers.
I stamped with curry but didn't like it so I stamped daffodil on top of it. I then stamped cajun then pumpkin. The center is choc chip. I stamped then turned the stamp so it would blend the ink a bit. Then I masked the flowers to add the greenery with olive ink.
The designer paper was added to my vanilla base then the image was turned a bit so the two flowers balanced nicely at the top and bottom.
I stamped in memento rich cocoa then versamark. I heat embossed with clear ink then watercolored with the aqua painter and inks listed. I added wink of stella clear to the flower and leaves and yellow to the flower center.
I edged the image with cajun then layered painted autumn designer paper. The base of the card is cajun.
This was for the Wednesday sketch challenge. I turned the sketch horizontally to make my card. I used dimensionals to pop up the mug and top. I added nailheads to make my diagonal lines. I used the small oval to make my handle. Now I can make mugs along with cups!
This card is going to 16 year old Dante who loves Blues Clues and loves getting mail! Dante has autism. I don't have any stamps like this so I downloaded a birthday image for him and personalized it. Happy Birthday Dante. I hope you get lots of cards through the Tea Party this week.
This is called, the Ohio Star Quilt. I punched the squares with the punch. Then I cut some pieces into fourths. I drew horizontal, vertical and oblique lines so it would be easier to line up the squares and triangles.
Using the Coffee Cafe Stamp and die sets to make this card. I added my own handle to it using the oval die in the set. Now I can make mugs of coffee not just cups!
Just another way to make stamps/dies give me more for my money!
As I was trying to work today, I had help from Phoebe. She just sits right down on my card stock and enjoys the light and attention she gets from me. She's a great supervisor! LOL

I needed a bit of humor tonight and found this. Andy Andrews preaches and can really tell a story. I hope you enjoy this.
Thanks for stopping by.
