My SU party!

Thanks to all of you that could come to me SU party and for those of you that couldn"t make it but gave an order.  We had a good time and Wendy showed us how to make these neat cards and more.  We missed you those who couldn't make it.  One of the cards was very simple to make but just  as pretty as if we would have spent more time.  The other use a neat designer paper that is in the SU catalog.  It is already embossed, so we can use the stamp resist method only  with half the work.  I hope you will enjoy the cards as we did in making them.

My Sister's Birthday card

I made a card for my sister's birthday.  Will be taking it to her this evening but wanted to share it with you first.  I bought a new leaves cuting die by Sizzix and had to try it.  The flower was made with flower punches.  The embossed background is another Sizzix embossing folder that came with the christmas tree background embossing folder.

Watercolor Rose card!

Here is how I did this.

I was just trying this to see if I could do  it.  I like it but it does need a little improvement.  I used the Manhatten Flower embossing folder from Stampin Up.  I took a white piece of heavy cardstock, and embossed the design on it using the folder and my Cuttlebug. I then took a brayer, loaded it with Versamark and gently went over the raised image.  I quickly poured white embossing powder over the image, tapped of the excess and used my heat embossing gun to set the image.  I then wet the design I wanted to paint first with plain water.  I put a drip of my rinker dye ( Baroque Burgandy) on a plastic tray, absorbed alitte of the dye with my water brush painter and proceeded to color in the design.  I used the paint a little stronger in some areas to make the appearance of shading.  You could also use a regular paint brush and get the ink from your stamp pad.  When the design was dry, I cut the it out and glued it to a white card.  I fill the design with crystal effects which made it raised and shiny.  I got this idea from a SU website, only she stamped the image with the rose from the Fifth Ave. Floral set from SU.  I don't remember the stampers name.  I would have liked to have given her credit here.

To my painting friends!

HI,  I haven't forgotten you, It took me to long to figure how to manage this blog. I hope to have something to post soon.  Hang in there.  I do have a painting class scheduled this coming Tues 10-12pm and Thurs. 5-7pm.  We will be painting a picture frame, painting wildflowers that we learned last week.  Even if you never painted before, you can come.  I will teach you still how to do it.  It easy and fun to do.  The cost is only $10 for the 2 hour class.  Let me know soon if you would like to attend.  Have a great day!

Thanks to all

I just wanted to thank all of you attending our card workshop last evening.  I didn't think I would ever be ready for it, but I made it. (Well almost, not counting the things I forgot)  Also want to thank all of you who had advise as to how to post pictures.  I think I have it now.  Now to get busy and have cards ready for my next class on Sept 1st.

I want to share with you a card I made using my Cuttlebug and a Sizzix Die. I just love my Cuttlebug! I have had a lot of fun using it and of course like anything else I do, I keep adding to my supply of cutting dies and embossing folders. What can I say, I am addicted to it.

This is confusing!!!

Here I am, and I have no idea what I am doing here.  For right now I am the only person who knows  I have a blog site.  So.......If anyone happens to get this, just remember as I said, I have no idea what I am doing here.
