A is for Acetate.

These two cards were made using the acetate and tissue technique. It was a messy type of technique but the results are nice, you can find the instructions for this at Splitcoaststampers. I think I'd like to play again with this at a later date, but right now these are two that I did for a swap that I'm in.

Red and Purple

Hi Everyone, Well these two cards I made for a red and purple swap. I haven't used this tecnique in a while, so it was high time to do so. It's called spirelli, and for these two I used my new nestibilites dies that I just got today which is the scalloped oval. I did the spirelli technique around them and layered them on the opposite color, and then I added the dimensional stickers to them on is a shaker type and the other is just 3d. added the greeting and done. They were quick and easy type to make, but I'm already late in sending them out, so thought it was a good way to do a quick and easy.

Second Accordian Card

This is the second accordian card that I did. The stamp on the front as well as on the first page are from Artful Inkables, The hat is a 3d picture I've had for a while, and the dress and Be yourself stamps are from Inkadinkadoo. The ooh-la-la stamp I'm not sure where it's from, as I've had it for along time.

Red and Gold is the theme for these musical cards. A while ago I showed a butterfly that was done on gold with red. It was supposed to be for a swap, but it was sold. So here are the two cards that I'm going to use for the swap instead. They are both embroidered with gold thread on red cardstock and added the gold music note stickers and sentiments.

Canadian Paper Crafting Bloggers.

I thou ght this was a very neat idea that Nancy had to make a list on her side bar of Canadian paper crafting bloggers, so I requested that she add mine to her list. She has a very nice blog, is very talented, so even if you aren't Canadian or don't want to be added I'd still got check it out, and if you are Canadian and want to be added, just email her a quick hello and she'll add your name. It's that simple.

These two cards were made for a sketch swap that I'm in. The first is done using sticker mosaics then I stamped the blue background on it and on the top layer of the underneath part. Used hot fix gem stones instead of brads.
The second is a picture of a hibiscus which was great to go with the cardstock and used white with it and brads.
Thanks for looking.

A is for Anniversary and Alcohol Inks

An Anniversary card made with a background done in Alcohol inks.
The background was made with redpepper, cranberry, and silver colors blending it all with the blending solution, then the hearts were stamped on randomly afterwards. I then cut it out with my nestabilities die and embossed the edges of it as well.
