CASED cards

A couple of cards I CASED last weekend.

Stampers 10 October 19th

These four cards are all from Stampers 10 on Monday, October 19th. The paper used from the top card was ripped out of book, stamped with a wheel using versa mark, then sponged over with chocolate chip ink. The pretties kit flower was dyed with chocolate chip ink.
This card was quick and easy to make.
A new way to use Pocket Silhouettes by making a vase with crimper and oval punch to hold the arrangement.
I had not tried any technique on a background stamp until now. First the white paper was randomly sponged with 3 different colours, then versa stamped and heat embossed, then finally sponged over with chocolate chip ink.

Where Have You Been/Where Would You Like To Go?

I've made this card last week for Audrey's swap entitled "Where have you been/where would you like to go." You can't tell from the photo but the Eiffel tower is heat embossed in gold. Here is the link

Audrey's Hippie Swap

This was Audrey's Hippie swap. I got the package this week. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the card I swapped but I could easily make another one to show. I do like all three very much but would like to show the nifty closure on the card to the extreme right. See how the tab slips in?! Cool, eh?!


These are the 1/2 peaches and jams I canned back in August. My husband took the picture and of course Tiana had to get in the shot. Just got a bushel of grapes today and have started the juice for jelly. That may be worth blogging about too.
Ok, FINALLY I took pictures of my ribbon from the Smithville Fair. I won this for my peach jam. On Tuesday of this week I got my cheque for all my winnings and went to Michaels craft store and bought myself a crimper. Here is a picture of the card I made last night with it. I had run out of tape so had to use photosplits to finish at least one. The other 5 cards which are already cut out will wait for tape.

Big Daddy's

This was on Tuesday September 29th, 2009. We met at Big Daddy's in Mississauga. Here is Ina, Karen, Diana, & Christyne. Look at all the goodies we shared with each other! Diana made the purse which can hold cards, Christyne made the card, Ina made the crochet flowers, Karen made the soap and lip balm (which I opened last night and it is just like honey butter in scent and appearance YUM!)Oh, and I brought jam which can kinda see in the background. So as you can see we are not only beautiful but talented too!

Bleach Technique

Here is the card I made last night. I made 9 of them and you are looking at 3 of them. The middle card is the inside.
