Two Cards

Hi Everyone,

I have two cards today, trying to play in some challenges, one of which is soon going to end.

My first card I made for The Ton - gotta play in their first challenge! their theme is celebrate and yes they sure have a good reason to celebrate - they just had their anniversary and with all those gorgeous stamps they are selling they are going to be around for a very long time!

I used those wonderful peony dies - I just love them! They cut the glitter paper so well. I have tried cutting glitter paper before with other dies (won't mention the company) but it did not really work for me. Those cut like butter! I added the sentiment (also from The Ton) to a strip of black glitter paper and heat embossed it. added two blue gems.


I recently bought that cute Avery Elle set with the tree in the car (because I need more Christmas stamps...) and it has been waiting to get inked up! I colored it with watercolor markers  and fuzzy cut it. The background is dry embossed and the snowdrifts are by STAMPlorations. And wait - the sentiment is By Ellen Hutson, of course - gotta combine those two companies!

I am also linking up the first card with:

The Paper Players - black, white and one more color
CAS on Sunday - black, white and one more color
Curtain Call - see inspiration picture

For your blog

I am also linking up the second card with:

WOW! that peony die is gorgeous and I love the beautiful blue glitter paper you chose. Stunning layout. That cute little red car sure looks like it is struggling in all that snow. We are struggling with heat waive conditions here in Oz phew!

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
