Archivers Class Card

Here is one of the cards I did at the last class I took at Archivers. We used Ranger paints to paint the stamp..it was cool, but if you have never used paint on your rubber stamp, you had to get use to how much pressure you put on your stamp. The flowers on the card have Ranger crackle on them and Ranger Stickles on the ends. I like how it turned out and will need to practice more with paints and rubberstamping

Due to all the strange comments I have been getting on my blog, I have had to turn on word verification.

More later...tata for now.....

Two Happy Monkeys


Here is a cute card I did not long ago to send to my nephew who's birthday is coming up here soon. I love these monkeys. I found this stamp at Archivers while browsing through the stamps. Have you noticed I go to Archivers a lot? Its my favorite store. You wont find awesome deals like Hobby Lobby has, but it has everything you can think of.

The paper I used was from an old kit that I had ordered on QVC like two years ago. I had it stashed in a box and found it while I was cleaning out my craft closet one day. The buttons were with the kit as was the ribbon. Hard to believe I had this stashed away and had forgotten all about it. Glad I found it and many other goodies.

I will be taking some pictures tomorrow of some cards I made at an Archivers card class I took last week. Shabby Chic...awesome class. I have really been digging these classes at Archivers and plan on taking another one later this month. Its not a card class but you make an album. Cant wait.

Until next time..tata for now.

Another Valentine To Share

Here is another Valentine I made. I signed up to take a valentines card workshop at Archivers and this was one of the cards shown in the newsletter. Mine is different than the actual one we made, which I will post for you next when I take the picture. But all in all, I think this was an easy valentine card to make if you don't have a lot of time, which most of us don't.

Hope you enjoy and more to come....tata for now

Sigh

I bet you all thought I was dead huh? I know, I'm a terrible blogger these days...I don't know why I cant get it together. I will try to be better.

Anyway, here is a cute Valentine I made the other day. I got these Hero Arts cling stamps at Archivers. They look so good I wish I could eat them..lol.

Nothing fancy, just colored them using my Prismacolor markers and Sharpies. Punched out some hearts and added them to the card...that's it.

Anyway, hope you all have a great weekend. At least its a bit warmer here.

Tata for now....

A Christmas Card


How about a Christmas card for now? I have to purchase "adobe elements" before I can edit any more cards..free trial is up..darn.

Anyway, this image is a fun one to make cards with. The background paper is shiny so its kinda hard to see. I got this cool paper at Archivers and love it. I stamped my image and colored with Prismacolor markers. I added glitter to my hurricane lamp. I wasn't sure how it might turn out, but I like it. Nice and sparkly. I used my gold leaf pen and went around the image and the Merry Christmas.

Hope you all are doing good. Things around here are same old same old...therapy, therapy, therapy..haha.

Until next time..enjoy....

Your Birthday Popped Up..

How cute is this stamp set? Makes the perfect card for male or female..I absolutely love a card that can be either or. Or you could leave off the sentiment that goes with the popcorn and make it an invitation for a movie party or something...the Sky's the limit.

Nothing too exciting going on in my neck of the woods. I was very lucky last week when I went to therapy. I tortured myself so bad that my therapist did not put me on my stomach and bend my leg up....woohoo! Of course she is still gonna do it she says so she can feel how I'm coming along, but the more I can hold her off, the better for me. I also got a different leg brace that allows my leg to bend when I walk. It is so much easier to walk and sit in a chair. I just love my therapist.

I did work on a few cards today, so will post as I get pictures taken.

Tata for now........
