Embossed Technique

This is actually an older card, and I've just kept it around because I think it's so beautiful. My friend Pam also helped with this background technique. We stamped and colored the flower, then embossed it with clear and colored the background. Thanks for looking!

Mixed Bunch

Here's a cute card made with the Stampin Up Mixed Bunch stamp set and punched with the corresponding punch. The background is stamped with soft suede and the border is punched. It has a solid color flower behind the main flower to create a shadow effect. Thanks for looking!

More Black Cats!

Look at this cute file from the new store at  Snapdragon Snippets! It's a simple cat box to put treats in! I made 7 so I can give them to the grandkids and the children of my co-workers! They really do go together in a "snap"! Thanks for looking!

Black Cats!

I saw this on Pinterest and couldn't resist, especially since one of my granddaughters is such a huge cat fanatic! The momma and young'un are made from a 2 x 4, and the papa is made from a 2 x 6. Simply paint them black, distress the edges, add the wiggly eyes and twine, and these cute kitties are done! I did spray paint clear matte acrylic over these so they could be left outside. Thanks for looking!

This is a nice technique taught to me by my friend Pam. It's stamped with Versamark and clear embossed on glossy cardstock, then dabbed with alcohol inks. Thanks for looking!

Fall Flight

Today I'm so excited to present my first project for Snapdragon Snippets! Hi, this is Debb and I  made this awesome Corsair fighter plane from the kit "Ready for Takeoff" found here. It's a wonderful, detailed airplane with a propeller that really moves! Can you just imagine "Pappy" Boyington or one of the Black Sheep Squadron taking a fall flight in one of these?

All of the details are perfect! You can find it in the Silhouette Store here, and a great construction tutorial to make it here. 

Thanks for joining me today!

Quilted Cards

I'm REALLY needing to find ways to use my scraps. Well, when I have leftover fabric, I make a quilt, so when I have leftover paper scraps, what do you think I do with them? Make quilted cards! I love the look, especially when I emboss the quilted piece, but I think they look really cute without embossing, too. I have to admit, they take a long time, and really don't use up many of the scraps. That's ok, though. It gives me a chance to get out the Big Shot and play awhile, and I can make a lot of these little card fronts to use for any occasion. They also look really cute when cut out with the One Note die from Stampin Up.


Thanks for looking!
