Saturday Evening Post

I bought this awesome stamp at Smudges' garage sale. I made this ATC (Artist Trading Card) for a Yahoo group I am on. For those of you who are not familiar with ATC's, they are miniature works of art that measure 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. If you have not made one yet, give it a try. They are so fun!

Recipe: Stamp - Saturday Evening Post; Card Stock - Not Quite Navy, Bravo Burgandy, Basic Black and Glossy White (Stampin' Up!); Ink - Basic Black and reinkers for coloring in image, Vintage Photo Distress Ink; Accessories - Distresser

Graduation Card

I made this card for my Stamper' 10 group using the themes of embossing and graduation. This tree from Thoughts & Prayers is one of my favorite stamps. It is so versatile.

I'm Back!

I hope to update my blog more often this summer. I have been neglecting it far too long. I hope you are all enjoying summer! Here are some things I have made lately.

I made this card for a birthday challenge on Kerry Donovan-Casey's blog, but unfortunately did not complete it in time (the story of my life). We were to use the color purple and glitter. I thought this hula outfit would look so cute in purple glitter. What do you think? I made my own beaded pin. My daughter, Brittany, loves to bead. So I just used some of her fun beads and head pins. These are so fun to make!
Recipe: Stamp - Hula girl from Imaginisce; card stock - Basic Black, Whisper White, Lavender Lace from Stampin' Up!; Ink - Basic Black, VersaMark - Stampin' Up!; Accessories - Heat & Stick, purple glitter from Stampin' Up!, beads, head pin, polka dot ribbon, Prima flower, purple button, embroidery floss, Martha Stewart border punch, Sizzix scallop circle, black glaze pen.
