lori-smile often lori-smile often detailThis card by Lori cracked me up. Sweet little ol’ Granny sticking her tongue out in such a tranquil scene.

Here’s what Lori did:
I thought Granny Gertz looked like she needed to take a stroll in the park! lol!  I stamped the line of trees with green and brown ink on white diecut panel (with left edge trimmed off) – then colored with markers. To create the bed of flowers, I only inked the bottom portion of the grass stamp with green ink. Then I shaded the grass with light green marker (using short flicks). To make the little flowers, I used markers and added tiny dots….then added crystal glitter. Fence is diecut and adhered flat with sentiment sticker on top. I mat the panel on black cardstock – then adhered to cardbase with foam adhesive. Granny stamped on white cardstock and colored with markers, then trimmed and adhered with foam adhesive. Clear glaze pen added to her glasses and yellow glitter added to her flower and bracelet. Granny Gertz puts a smile on my face!

joanna-caution to the windIsn’t this a fun card! Joanna sent this in and I love her use of polka-dots and stripes. She added a little stitching all around the card and finished things off with a cute bow.

tanya-perspective birdieTanya sent this ever so cute card in. Once again she’s used lots of layers. Beginning with her tattered paper, adding some big stitches and then layering a huge pink polka-dot ruffle. She’s topped it off with the sentiment, little birdie and some little pin jewels. Ahhh.

stephanie-twinkle twinkleHere is a very sweet card sent in from Stephanie. The sentiment is just perfect for the image “Looking up”. She’s added little twinkling stars of gold glitter and a combination of straight and zigzag stitches to finish things off.

tanya-cupcakesTanya has done it again – so much to look at it this yummy card. She used a variety of paper die cuts to make all the layers. I love her use of embroidery floss for her stitching in this one. And “happy together” is right – who wouldn’t be with not only two yummy cupcakes but THREE!

kelly-card in box frontThis wonderful card-in-a-box was sent in by Kelly. She said that it was her first attempt. Wow. She wanted to create a birthday scene and I think she did an outstanding job!

The entire card actually folds flat or mailing and that many of the stamped images are mounted on clear plastic. Wouldn’t it be fun to receive this in the mail!!

lori-say cake lori-say cake detailTalk about YUMMY! Lori’s next project is raining cupcakes. I love the hot pink frosting with the added little sparkle.

Lori sent in what she did:
Watercoloring is all the rage right now with stampers and paper crafters…and this cupcake image is perfect for this technique!  I stamped the cupcake several times on watercolor cardstock with archival ink and colored with watercolor paints When dry I brushed the frosting with clear shimmer (Wink of Stella). To create the sentiment window, I punched out a 1 1/4″ square on the panel. Then I punched a scalloped frame…and adhered it flat. The entire panel is mounted to card base with foam adhesive. The sentiment is stamped on white cardstock, trimmed and adhered with foam adhesive. Sequins adhered to each cupcake for the finishing touch. Yummy!

lori barnett - one of those daysI just wanted to write a wee post saying thank you to Lori Barnett. She was picked to be on Spectrum Noir’s Design Team and one of the cards they featured was this one!

In case you hadn’t heard of them, Spectrum Noir is a maker of alcohol based markers, similar to Copic but a lot easier on your pocket book. They also have a line of blendable pencils. I haven’t tried them, but I’m sure I will certainly have to now. :)

You can read more about Lori and Spectrum Noir here.

Congratulations and thank you for sharing your news!
Here’s a link to the original card posting on my blog.

monica-jessica flower sympathyHere’s a little card by Monica expressing deepest sympathy. There are certainly times in our lives when a caring note lets someone know that we are thinking of them, keeping them in our hearts. I think this card expresses it so sweetly. Thank you Monica.

tanya-sunshineTanya always creates scenes with lots of layers and happenings in every inch of space – and this current project is no exception. Here she’s layered, stitched and layered some more. I love all her details – the ribbon string on the balloon, her coloring and the big flower in the corner.
