Love and Laughter Tag

Good Morning Lady's! Today's post is another card from conference. I have posted a similar card earlier in the year, but I took that card concept and turned it into a tag. I am in love with the Love and Laughter stamp set. It is in the top 10 most purchased stamps sets. I used the olive versamagic ink and the kaleidoscope embossing powder to make the tree sparkle. As most of you know I enjoy a bit of bling on just about everything, so why not a sparkly tree. Its magic!!

I used Bazil Chocolate Brown card stock and Willoughby TAC paper, All the inks are versamagic.

Hope you guys like. I no more cards from conference all new stuff next week.

Cupcake Shaker

When the Serendipity magalog came out I was stoked about all the fun new sets. I couldn't buy them all, but lucky me my Aunt and fellow Angel received this little cupcake set R-2038. I stamped the the cupcakes on Toodle Loo printed paper and and matted it. I used a 1" square punch and covered it with acetate. I used food coloring and sugar to make my blue crystals. Underneath the crystals is stamped Hey Sweet Thing. I used stickles to put a little bling on the sprinkles. Have a great day guys!!

Bottle Cap Rings

I am totally and completely addicted to shrink plastic, also known as shrinky dinks. I think it all started in my childhood. Anytime you can combing coloring and melting its a good time. Kind of like melting crayons between wax paper, fun for hours or you run out of crayons. I also like to come up with creative ways to make jewelry. Micheals is like crack for me I not only get sucked in on the scrapbook side of things but the beads and bobbles get me too. I spent some time with my favorite angel and cousin Suzanne and I came up with an idea to use charms and bottle caps as rings and pendants. So I thought "hey' I can make my own charms with stamps and Shrinky dinks". For conference I wanted to bring a special trade because last year I didnt have one and felt left out. This year was my year... no one makes rings. I broke out my Affirmation Badges T-2958, my frosted Shrinky dink plastic and my favorite colored pencils and made 50 charms. I was so excited. I used large jump rings to make the adjustable ring.

I hope you like them as much as I do. I had a spectacular time creating them and then coordinating the glitter. I am still finding glitter in my dining room. I have two shots for you so that you can see the actual ring as well as the charms. Have a great day. My next post will be soon.

Seminar stamp set

Every year we get a new stamp set before we go to conference. This years set was full of great words and two new angles. I was having trouble decided what to do until I came across my stash of Angelee paper. I like the idea of paper piecing and this angels outfit was just asking me to piece her dress together. So I happily stamped about 25 of her out on white card stock and then again on the Angelee patterned paper. Let me tell you it took me and a friend a couple of hours to cut her out, but I think she was worth it. I used colored pencils to color everything but the dress and I used Glaze Gelly Pens to color her Maryjane's. The Glaze pens give them a shiny look with out embossing. Hope you like.

Long time no blog...

I know its been a few months since my last blog. I am so sorry. How ever I hope to make it up to you all in the next few weeks. I just returned from seminar and I am so excited about the new catalog. Most of you know that I am single and I don't have any children so I have decided to use everyone else's kids to make samples. Lucky for me I know a ton of people with kids. So over the next few weeks I will share with you my projects from seminar as well as some new ideas. As a teaser I'll tell you I have a fabulous scrapbook paper that involves a mentos geyser..... I know your excited right. lol
