Crackled Clipboard

I used a product designed for the wall. I decided that I could use it on a clipboard. {AND} it worked!

The product that is suppose to be used on "walls".

What my clipboard looked like "before". I bought it at Staples for $1.

What is looks like after you apply and it is wet.

The clipboard dried after 24 hours.

Graduation Card

I made this card for a girl who was graduating high school one semester early. They do a winter graduation here for those senior who meet their graduation requirements early.

The school colors are red and black.

The inside of the card stamp is from The Angel Company. Since I had to color the cap black, I punched out a circle in red cardstock to put on the cap.

Birthday Card

I colored the stamp in with a black Copin marker.

I highlighted the skirt of the stamp with 3D effects.

Valentine Day cards I made today....

I remembered that postage goes up Monday. I printed off stamps earlier last week. So, I need to send out my cards early so I can use up my stamps. :)

Get Well Card

I stamped the iris flower and stamped off twice without huffing the stamp. I like the shadowing the two images it gives the flower.

I inked the stamped image edges slightly to give it a little edge off the card front.

 The stamps are from The Angel Company.

Another birthday card

I made this card for my brother. The stamp set is from Great Impressions. The "Happy Birthday" is from Club Scrap.

I colored the geese with BIC markers. I used Stampin' Up! and CTMH inks for stamping.

Birthday card

I really like the way this bird's coloring turned out. I used colored pencils and chalk to color the bird and pine tree. I rubbed the colors with my fingers.

The stamp is The Angel Company.

I doubled up the washi tape to tone down the bright yellow cardstock.

Thank you for looking.

Get Well Card

I am always trying to look for new fun ways to design get well cards. I have had this bright yellow cardstock for a few months. I used it for my NYE cards. I had some leftover. This would be great to use for get well cards. Bright and cheery!

The stamps are from The Angel Company. Ink used are from CTMH. I colored the medicine bottle with Copics, highlighting the pills with the glitter dustpen.

Happy New Year's Eve... Dec 31, 2013

This is what I was doing NYE.

I was really late sending out my Christmas cards this year. Nothing really was on schedule for me. I am on schedule type person.

I chose a Darice embossing folder ( clocks ) for the background of the card front. The sentiment is from The Angel Company. The drinking glasses are from an unknown rubberstamp. I think I got it in a scrapbooking kit years ago. One of my favorites to use this time of year.

Ink used for the rubberstamping is CTMH.

I colored the glasses with Copics, highlighting the bubbles with the glitter dustpen.

I survived one of my summer classes. I forgot that summer classes are compressed studies. Three and half months of study comp...
