Gorgeous Centerpiece

Isn't this adorable!?  I have told you before about my fabulous RemARKable Stampers team meetings, hosted by Janet Wakeland!  Well, these were the centerpieces at our meeting last week!  I was lucky enough to have my name picked as a winner of the centerpiece at my table!  Everything in the InColor, Blushing Bride!  Ribbon, marker, paper bird and another packet of DSP, cardstock, and more ribbon were under the birdcage on the table!  I also won a pack of the Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric!!! It was definitely my lucky day!  I will be sharing more projects that I received in the swap and that we completed as make and takes!!!  Wait til you see them!!

Cutie Pie

Well my Pumpkin Pie, aka my nine year old daughter Emme, has been catching the card creating bug lately!  We recently had an AC Moore open very close to our home and we stopped in to check it out!  She talked me into buying her a huge cupcake/birthday stencil.  As soon as we got home she went straight to work. 

These cards are the result of her hard work!  She even set up my usual picture taking corner and snapped her own photos!  I couldn't believe it!!!  She is very independent and definitely has her own opinions about things!  When she was finished she said to me, "Hey mom, can you put my cards on that blog thing you do?"  How could I possibly resist that, right?

She dug through my SU! stuff and added some rhinestones and slot punches for a little bling!!  Just curious, do your kids join you when you are creating?

Faux Tin Tiles

That silver brushed cardstock has been collecting dust in my paper holder for quite some time.....I finally found a technique that would make me dust it off!  I embossed the brushed silver with the Finial Press embossing folder and then used the 1 3/8" square punch to cut out the "tiles".  You can't see the shine too well in the photo, but it the "tiles" do look cool.  I have had those huge brads for awhile now too and I thought this would be a good time to pull those out too.  Many of my materials were things "I just had to have" when they came out and then I never touched them. I am making a huge effort to start using some of those must haves in my projects!  Keep an eye out for them the next few weeks!  I am getting ready for spring cleaning!!

Quilted Card

A quilted card!  And I can't even sew a button on.  That is not a lie, very sad but true. This technique just brings such a great look to the card, don't you think?  Once you have all of your flat pieces attached to your creation, select your favorite embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot!  It makes it look as though each piece is individually set into the card.  It is really cool looking.  I have been searching around to see what else I can quilt!  Enjoy the card!

Well, I was in a monochromatic kind of mood while I was creating last week.  This is what I came up with!  The navy card was for my Friday Night Hostess Club!  The olive card was for my Wednesday Night Hostess Club!  They all seemed to enjoy the cards and I was pretty happy with how they turned out as well.

The Botanical Gazette paper and the Nature Walk stamp set is one of my new favorites.  I wasn't always into vintage (I know, I know), but this set has made me start to enjoy them more!
