Friendship Bookmark ~ Winter

I made this using the Season Of Friendship by Stampin' Up! The bookmark sits in the "snow" which is just white cardstock that was ripped to give texture. The background of the kraft paper has versa marked snow flakes. This is the first of the four seasons. I may try fall next.

Blooming Magnets

I started this as a magnet but then wondered how I could turn it into a card. I remembered that I had this punch, which I just had to have 2 years ago but never used until today.
On the right is the magnet attached to the card and on the left is the magnet removed from the card and ready for the refrigerator door, office cabinet or any other metal surface.

Paper Boxes

I made these boxes using SU! retired set God's Beauty and retired SU! DS paper, Haiku. First I cut 4 equal sizes of cardboard and using book binding glue attached the inside and outside papers. Another paper was chosen for the 4 origami boxes inside and yet another paper also folded origami style for the top and bottom. The outside of the box was then embellished.

Black or White

This is my son, Jacob with Bishop Soul who is a Michael Jackson tribute artist. We met yesterday at Coffee Culture in Grimsby. Aren't they both handsome?! One of Michael Jackson's songs is entitled Black Or White so I'm going to show you this black and white waterfall card I made using the daisy from SU!'s Organic Grace stamp set. Four of the same image was stamped and placed on a folded strip that when pulled, reveals each image separately. The first picture is before you pull the ribbon tab. In the second picture I tried to show you how the card looks as it is being pulled and the third is once you've pulled all the way.

Black, Red & White

This is a faux metal emboss. Just make a few layers of embossing then, while still hot, stick your stamp in. I got the asian coin stamp from Michael's and the bird on bamboo, which was stamped twice to be a longer version of itself, is a hostess set from SU! called Asian Artistry.
I used the big shot for the envelope, real red ribbon, punches from SU! and 3 different stamp set from SU!; Wonderful Words, Baroque Motifs, and Vintage Vogue.
