This is new paper from the S/S Collection, it's called Bali Breeze. The new Rub On's called Eastern Expressions (yummy!) These items co ordinate with A beautiful thing stamp set.
These cards are super fun and easy to do, I plan to make more.
For this challenge you needed to use black card stock for your main images and only black accessories. For this card, I stamped the back ground (print pattern) with versa mark and then brushed pearl ex. A soft cloth wiped away the excess powder. The main image of the branch was stamped with versa mark as well, but then I embossed it with ultra thick ep. I then brushed pearlex over it and heated it again. The result is super shiney and raised. I then added 3 black glittered brads. I love doing this technique it turns out beautiful .
I still need to photograph and upload my other projects but there will be more.

This was a card to honour friendship. It needed to follow the layout provided. I really like how it turned out. Again I used a new Sale-a-bration set, called Friendship Blooms. I also used my quickie glue pen and dazzling diamonds.
I did more than this but I will pace my posting so I can update more this week.

Only the coolest weekend of stamping. Every hour you get a challenge and you have 45 minutes to create a card to match the challenge.
I had forgotten how creative it makes me feel. So far tonight I have done every challenge and I am so happy with my cards. I really needed this mojo infusion.
Want to find out more, or give it a try...........check it out here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=316570
So check out my blog in the upcoming week to see what I did. :)
The pocket is made out of brocade blue card stock. I rounded all the edges with a small corner rounder. The cute paper is by cloud 9. The tag is cut from certainly celery paper on my Cricut Expressions machine. Very cool. (and quick) I used my Marvey Scalloped punches for the animals. The stamp set is Wild for You by SU!
Since my DD wanted Elephants and SIL wanted Lions, I had to do two cards.
I have so many projects swirling around my head. Hopefully I can do some me stamping soon. Although I did enjoy making these.

This journal was made from scratch. I cut the cover from thin cardboard and covered it in cloud 9 papers the inside paper is the plaid. (the D is covered in the plaid as well) I used more of the beautiful velvet ribbon. I covered a chipboard D and sanded the edges with the basic grey file set. (A real lifesaver) Added a Prima with a crystal brad and a couple of little gems to the flower centers.
I then used my Bind it All to put it all together. This was my first time using my BIA since I brought it back from my trip to Salt Lake City. I learned a few lessens but I am going to make lots more with it. It really is a cool little machine. I like it so much better my rubicoil.
Now all I need is the Dreamcuts machine. One more thing for my ever growing wish list.

I absolutely love the hair........a bright orange glow and so much hair. What a sweetie. It's funny Ayden is celtic for little fire, an appropriate name I think. I have a feeling this little guy is going to be adored!
What a sweet smile, I wonder what he's thinking?

I think these are so cool, for idea books, cookbooks, teen binders. Just makes the boring a little jazzier.
