Close to my heart makes some of the cutest stamps. I also used the gravestone cut from the artiste cartridge. I think it's adorable. I put black tule on the top after I punched a hole and I also applied glossy accents to some features and colored with ctmh alcohol markers.

This is a super cute easy card to make with your washi tape. I chose 3 different tapes and used a repeat to make the balloon over cream cardstock. Personalized with small banners I made from scraps and attached some sanded cuttlebug embossed paper as the basket. I pop dotted the balloon over hand cut paper from echo park walk in the park paper pack. I think it turned out super cute and am hoping my niece loves it.

Ok my girls would say I am obsessed with bees. I just colored about 30 of them do they may be right. These images are from ctmh stamps and the paper is from the urban prairie collection from basic grey. I love the color scheme and am happy with the overall look.

I recently stumbled across this paper and immediately fell in love with it. It is simply stating what I feel everyday It has such lovely statements on it such as happiness is in the journey not the destination. I love these cards

Tonight I made three tags that will be placed on cards. I played with color and found that really all the distress line colors will work together and that even when I think something won't work out. It might. I thought the bird tag was going to be thrown out but it ended up working and sometimes only part of a stamp can be used to achieve really pretty borders. So is anyone out there? Anyone got some creative critiques or comments?

So today I got my may 2012 copy of CardMaker magazine and Tim Holtz is featured and has a card tutorial. This us my version. I wish the background on the tag showed up more but I stamped it in copper rather than white. I will have to try a white stamped version too but this is what I came up with tonight!

So here is the third technique Tim Holtz taught tonight. The only one I could do tonight because I can finds glossy card stock !?!? This involved stamping on embossing folders and getting reverse images and then framing another stamp within the embossing folder! I cut a slit in the top of the folder for the tag. I am very happy with the end result. I'd love some feedback. Thanks

Tag #3 is posted. The was the third attempt at this technique. It would seem simple but several factors played in with water on stamp and poor stamping quality with a larger stamp. Anyhow the end result of attempt 3 is pretty and something I will try again
