Here it goes……

So, I started getting craft obsessed around 10 years ago when I taught myself to quilt.  And I’ve just gone wild since!  I’ve been a little too involved with paint by numbers, needlepoint and quilting this last year.  And then I discovered stamping and making cards!  I mean, it has been quite the adventure!  And I am LOVING it.  LOVING it.  Here’s a few of my new projects I’ve worked on..

 

I worked with Simon Says Stamp’s Sparkle and Shine stamp set.  I used an iridescent glitter embossing powder for the polka dots.  The “Sparkle and Shine” is just in black.  I wanted to make it a little more interesting, so I added the gold glitter twine from the dollar aisle at target!  Gorgeous AND cheap!!!!

These were my Easter cards…I used the Simon Says Stamp March BoxSimon Says Stamp March Box – I used a bow maker & went crazy w the adorable paper in the box!

I then went crazy w the shaker card…I mean, who DOESN’T want a peep shaker card???  I first blended distress inks for the background.  Then embossed some Peeps over that…then came all of the shaker bits!  The other papers are from the SSS box.  I was in love w the quality of the paper in the box!  It was the first time I’ve used a heavy cardstock as a base!!!!

Then I discovered stamps by The Ton!!!  The following is my quick run at cards w the Round Diamond set and Timeless Icons Sentiment set.   To me there is NO such thing as too much glitz and glitter. I also used the “Dazzling” from Neat & Tangled’s Faceted set.

So…that’s a bit of a glimpse into where I’ve started from.  SO…here’s to a new adventure!!!
