3-D Flowers

Images:(c) 1990-2009 Stampin'Up!(r) Artwork: Margaret L Crawford
Don't you just love finding new ideas? I do.
Card 1- I found these flowers on a U-Tube SU video. They use the scallop punch, a bit of glue add a rhinestone brad to the centre.
Cards 2 & 3 - My SU friends in USA received convention swap cards with this technique (I do not know who orginally came up with idea - but thank you)
This weekend I am heading away for a stamping/scrapping/eating weekend and I will be demonstrating how to make the flowers. My next post will show the 6" x 6" scrapbook page I created for a swap during the weekend.

Scrapbooking Sadie

Some images: (c)1990-2009 Stampin'Up!(r) Artwork:Margaret L Crawford

Drawing inspiration from a layout in Scrapbooking Memories, Vol10 No6 here is a 12"x12" page of Sadie (the wonderdog). Sadie is the beloved pet of Sharon and Gary in Colorado. Now most people know that I am not a 'doggy' or even a 'pet' person but this little dog sure wins over hearts. Each morning she would bring one of her stack of toys to show me. She is wearing her 4th of July outfit purchased at Walmart . The front door is one of her favourite spots to wait for her family, for her post delivery lady or friends to walk by. Cute.

Shattered Sense of Time

Another new set in the upcoming SU spring mini is Sense of Time. I loved this set the first time I saw and I had lots of visions floating in my head. One of them was to use the shattered glass technique that I found here in a swap with our INKlings group. I hope that I have not spoiled the "just opened" thrill of getting new cards for those participating in the swap.

Circle Circus Christmas Card

Why not consider using a "non-traditional" stamp set for Christmas Cards. I have used Circle Circus. These cards (and a few others) are heading to camp - Camp Quality that is.

Something new

I found this technique at SCS and I just had to try it. It is called Faux Grid and it reminds me of the Pen and Ink technique used in Folk Art. You use your SU markers to colour direct on the tiles and images. I had a play with the technique this morning. There is a little bit of glitter (bling) on the flowers and the ears of the roo. I am very pleased with the results.

3rd Cyberchallenge - Kind People are the best kind of people.

Ryn's 3rd challenge was using a sketch from Pagemaps. I have changed the arrangement a little, so that the greeting does not impinge on the flower image. I have used "Inspired by Nature" and the greeting is from a hostess set "Best Yet". A little bit of Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Ribbon just ties (no pun intended) all together.
Did you know that you could also get free hostess set by getting together with your friends and have just $300 in sales and you get $30 of product free as well. With more sales you could get more product. And I will come and we can make cards and have a lot of fun. I love what I do and I love sharing it with others.

This months cyberchallenges with The INKlings were set by Ryn. Her 2nd Challenge was to use the colours - Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I have used the stamp set Circle Circus and the greeting comes from a new set in the soon to be released Spring Mini catalogue - Great Friend.
