Blue Winter

Hi all!  It’s been a few days since I last posted, because I’ve had a house full over the weekend.  My Mother in Law, Sister In Law and Niece have been here visiting since Thursday and I have not had a chance to craft of post anything.  It’s been a  busy weekend,  and I’m anxious to get back in my craft room! Oh ya, and So You Think You Can Dance Canada has started and I just had to watch it!  I cannot wait to see the top 20, once they’ve gone through all the auditions!  Anyone else watching?? I made this last week, for an SCS challenge.  I flocked the tree, and made my own dp by using the negative embossing technique, with Palette Hybrid ink, and the Snowflakes embossing folder. Stamps: Penny Black Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Ink: Palette Hybrid ink water lily Accessories: white flocking, glue, Snowflakes embossing folder, cuttlebug, Techniques: flocking, dry embossing, negative embossing Thanks for stopping in! Have a creative day!!

Every Minute Is a Possibility

This card was inspired by a circle card I saw in my Stampin’ Success magazine that I get every month through Stampin’ UP! I made it with someone specific in mind, who could really use a thoughtful word right now. I hope she likes it. I used the versamark negative embossing technique. I learned of it Here.

Post-it Purse Notes

Is your fridge door anything like mine? If it is, then it’s pretty much covered in photos, children’s artwork and notes! I always need to have a note pad on the fridge, or I am forever hunting for what seems like a scarce commodity: paper! Come on! I make cards! I have paper coming out of my ears…just not the right kind in the right place all the time. Anyway, I wanted to make a magnetic post-it note holder that might actually be pretty on the fridge. Here’s how: 1. I started with two square (4X4 inch) chipboard coasters. Measuring from 1/4 inch in from the top side of your coaster, line your ruler on an angle to the bottom outer edge of the coaster, and cut this angle away with your craft knife. You are simply making the top slightly narrower than the bottom. Do the same with the second coaster. 2.I used the negative embossing technique with my cuttlebug to get the background colour. The embossing was done on a 5 1/4″X4″ piece …
