Have I Lost My Mind?

Its almost 3 am & I have been working on this card for almost 2 hours! Making tiny golden tassels, paper latterns, taking photos, omgosh. If you find my marbles please return them....

I just couldn't help myself. Hubby brought me home this beautiful Washi paper the other day & I was enabled by the FS challenge on SCS. I chose this card . I had wanted to make something for Shelli's blog contest also & since i'm cutting it down to the wire I figured what the heck who needs sleep! Anyway back to the card. I mounted the Washi paper to Whisper White because it was too thin to punch. Then I punched the large oval & 2 key tags & ran them through the crimper. A stampin friend Lois had made tassels for a Stamp n Chat project awhile back so I thought I would give it a try. Found a how to video on YouTube. If you search just be warned you may find some instructions for umm...upperbody tassels. Just keep scrolling down. LOL! Its very easy to do once you see it. Well friends its now after 3am & I have to go to bed now or I will not be a happy camper tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

More Clouds

Made this for a couple challenges over on SCS. One challenge was to use rainbows & the other was to use a warm color & something fuzzy. I painted the rainbow on watercolor paper & I added some flock to the clouds to make them fuzzy!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hopefully I will get to film another cupcake punch video this weekend. :)

Stamp a Stack Sample #4

Today I saw a beautiful card on SCS by Denise January & I just had to use it as inspiration for this card. I loved her use of the damask stamp over the print & the color combo. So this will be another card for Feb 5th's Stamp a Stack. Ok now I've gotta head over to InPaperParadise to add a new card. Hope you'll hop on over. Thanks for stopping by today!

New Video Teaser!

I finished filming & now the editing department (aka my sweetie) is working on it! So I should have it ready to upload tomorrow. I hope.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I'm on a roll...

Stamp a Stack sample #3 done! Yippee!

Stampin Away!

I really enjoy mixing & matching things until I find a combo that I like. I'll grab a few different colors or punched shapes & see what works. I thought this combo was fun! Yay Stamp a Stack card #2 completed!!!
I am thinking about ideas for my next video & I was thinking of doing a short series featuring the cupcake punch & different ways to use it. What do you think? Is that something anyone would be interested in seeing? Thanks for the feedback!

Using Fabric Finally!

I decided to try something new & actually use some of the fabulous SU fabrics I have! They look nice sitting here uncut but I know there intended purposes is not to collect dust on my shelf. I had the bright idea of making this months Technique Tuesday class be focused on fabric! This gives me the push I need to get the creative wheels spinning & the scissors out. First I started by browsing Stampin Connection & I saw a wonderful card by Sam Woodruff . I changed it up a little bit & I really like how it turned out. I would love to know what you think. We will be making a card similar to this at tomorrow's TT class.

Anyway on to the next card....I haven't had a chance to ink up my Build a Blossom set yet so I decided to give it a little love along with another great set from the new mini catalog't remember but its the sympathy one. Cute?
 For the last card I wanted to have a sample of using fabric in the Big Shot. Just kept it very simple.
Well thats all I have for now but I will be back tomorrow...I hope. Also planning on giving out some blog candy since we hit 100 followers! Woo Hoo!!
