Motorcycle and Cracked Glass

Motorcycles are not popular in my family, however I just love this stamp from the Summer Mini Catalog. For this card I used the Cracked Glass technique and soft suede ink. The Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Messages Stamp Set and I added some paper piercing. The paper is sahara sand, whisper white and some retiring DSP. I will be offering a technique class in the middle of July and the cracked glass will be one of the techniques that I will be teaching.

Vintage Stencil

I love the look of the Vintage Stencil. It is available in the Summer Mini Catalog and also is in the new 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. It makes any card or scrapbook page have a touch of elegance to it.

First Father's Day

Here is the Father's Day card that I made for my husband. This is his first Father's Day! He loves getting handmade cards, however I always have trouble coming with with just the right card for him. I saw this somewhere on Splitcoast and thought it a really neat idea.

Playing with a New and Old Stamp Set

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. My mother and I had a garage sale last week and it took just about all my time and energy. I finally had some time to play with some of the new items I was able to preorder from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog last night. This is a new stamp set called Artistic Etching. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line everything up and think it turned out pretty well. I was hoping for a masculine birthday card and think this just might work.

Here is an oldie but a goodie. Inspired by Nature and Flight of the Butterfly work nicely together.
