Work in Progress

 The challenge was to create a card with a winged image and pop up the wings. This is what I came up with. (on left) I used the level A hostess set from the Serendipity Magalogue, called Swirled Spring Life.

 Then I thought the bee's body needed more height and interest, so I added fun flock on another stamped image, cut it out and put it on a slightly thinner pop dot. (on right)

 Then I used a retired stamp in the blank space on the left and added sparkle with a stardust gelly pen on the wings.

Lately I've been adding patterned paper to the inside of my cards. This time I only glued the right side inside, folded it closed, trimmed the edge so the inside print shows, and stamped the sentiment and little bee(another retired set).

 Then, I stamped the rest of the sentiment and little bee again on a piece of white, trimmed the edge and glued it to the inside on the patterned paper. Then, of course, I used the stardust pen again to add some sparkle to the little bee's wings on both images.
 This made a great "thinking of you" card for a friend.

Artsy Owls Birthday Card

 I am trying to go through my large collection of assorted cards and papers. I started with a square embosssed card that TAC carried some time back. I masked around the square and stamped the tree from Artsy Owls in the middle. Then I stamped and colored the Artsy Owls with Copics and put them on with pop dots. I added the sentiment from What a Hoot, punched the tag from Miss Moxie cardstock, and used it to line the inside, too. I cut the right hand side for the inside a bit larger than the front and used decorative scissors to trim it on one side. I liked the way it shows in the front with the card closed. I am really liking using patterned paper to line the inside of the cards and am doing it lots lately. I used gold stckles on the number and the dots and swirls  around the U. I also used a Versamark pen and clear embossing powder to make the U stand out.

Wonder and Joy

Here's a birthday card I made with the new set "Wonder and Joy". It's my favorite set at the moment!  I used a card that I had in my "stash" that had a window in it. I covered that with acetate and stamped the girl and balloon on the front. Then I stamped her again on white, colored her with Copics, cut her out, and mounted her and the sentiment with pop dots. I added the pattern paper strips to the front and inside the card. I masked the stamp to get just the balloon. Now that I am looking at it here, I realize I forgot to add curvy lines to look like balloon strings from the circles with the words from Tag Tidbits at the top of the inside. Still, I think it looks very cheery, don't you?

Apologies for Lagging Here

 Sorry not to have posted in months...School got in the way most of the time. Other times I forgot to scan the card before mailing it out because it was a "rush job." I have been stamping lately and want to make this blog a new priority, so please come back often. Here is one of my most recent creations. It is another acetate over photo card. The photo was taken last year when I went to the northernmost Pacific corner of Oregon. the sentiment is stamped with white opaque Stazon.
