How to make Flower Magnets

You'll need some glue and a quilling tool can be helpful, but not necessary.

Time off and time to Get Crafty!

Joy Card

I borrowed this design (to a degree) from a YouTube video. They used silver and grey and stamped their own images on the background.

I love the gold embossing powder, but it can be very temperamental...it sticks to everything!

Tea Light Covers



Years ago a co-worker gave me these tea light candle holders. I needed something to cover them up and snuff them out, so I used tomato paste cans and printed card stock to cover them. Then I put clear shelf paper over the paper to protect the paper.

This Weekend's Projects


My sister sent me flowers after a procedure I had done. The vase was so gorgeous I had to make something to display it year round. I made this arrangement to match my kitchen colors.

I used green foam to hold the flowers and then cut two pieces of brown paper to wrap around the green foam and cover it up.

Blue Bird and Green For You


Nothing very special about these, just thought I'd load them up so I'd have a record of them.

Hello Card


Black and White Simplicity and Elegance

Latest Cards; Congrats, Bird, Bow & Pink/Green


My latest. My favorite is the last one (pink). I love doing this watercolor effect. You can't see it in this image, but I embossed the central leaf to add a little texture.

Blue and Green

I made these Saturday night. I love the new large "floral" stamp used in the embossing and background of these two cards. It's realy versatile, although it would be better if it was slightly smaller overall. I find I have to cut off either the top or the bottom to make the first card-style shown.

Spring Colors

My new favorite is the pastel floral design. It was done with Versamark Ink (clear ink) and various colors of ink applied with cotton balls after the Versamark dried. It looks like store-bought paper!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you can see, I love my new butterfly stamp. Since it's such a bold stamp, it has a lot of versatility.

Butterflies

My husband says the blue/brown card is the most masculine/feminine card he's ever seen. Between the "Bolts", as he calls them (also known as Brads), and the glitter butterfly, it's an oxymoron. I have to agree!! LOL!!

Inkpad Swirl and Flower Panel Cards

These three cards are 'Teres' originals.

For the first two: I layed an ink pad down flat on a piece of white cardstock and twisted it, picked it up and moved it to another location and swirled it again. I dried the first color with a heat tool, selected another color and repeated the swirl technique.

The Floral Card was made using two flower outline stamps, clear embossing powder (over the orange ink) and a water marker dipped into an ink pad to fill in the green leaves and yellow in the flowers.
