Acetate Giraffe

This card is made using product from one of the new companies we got in. The artist is from Wisconsin. All the images are on clear acetate so the possibilities are endless for your pages and cards. I made a window for this cute guy and embossed the back for added interest. So if you don't like coloring...these are perfect. There are 9 images per sheet and lots wildlife ones for guys.

Hidden Message

Another card from a past class. This was a fun card kids got to make in the last Kids Class. We are busy working on next months class list so be sure to check it out.
I showed them they didn't have to do the same A2 card all the time. Add a little interaction to their pages and cards to add pizzaz.

Supplies: Judith stamps, Spellbinders scalloped square die, Creative Impressions grossgrain ribbon, MS twig punch, Basic Grey paper, CS, flower and brad.

Brick Wall Card

This is from a past class I taught. I showed how to ink your embossing folders and emboss. This gave the brick wall an aged look.  I used white pigment ink and after you run it through your Cuttlebug....just rinse your folder off with comes right off.

Supplies: Tim Holtz embossing folder, Scattered Straw Distress ink, Versacolor white pigment ink, glitter paper, CS, Spellbinders dies, Just Rite stamp, MS butterfly punch and Crystal Stickles on butterfly.


Last Monday my husband and I stopped at a Tiger Reserve on the way to see my grandma. I had heard about the reserve this winter so wanted to check it out. It is in a small town near Barribeau. They have about 30 tigers, a couple lions and a panther. You walk around to each and get a sheet saying how or where they each were rescued from, age and other info. I have to say, these are the most content large cats I have ever seen.  I did not get to touch a tiger though so I am still on my mission to do so. I have not touched a tiger in 2 years and am having withdrawl. =(

Feeling Better

Finally getting a Saturday to create. I have several classes coming up I need to be getting the cards ready for.
This is just a simple one to use up some scraps.  I used the retro flower punch for to leaves and creased it down the middle.  The copic colors used are: R32, E15, E17, C0, C5 and the Copic Multiliner pen since I
wanted to go around the outside and planned to draw the black stitching.  Stamps are by Judith.

Play on Color

Goodmorning!!  Hope everyone stayed cool thispast weekend. We need a break from this humidity. Yuck. My husband and I did some yardwork over the weekend and that was not fun but necessary.

I had taken this layout sketch off a blog and did a version of my own and in different colors to show the class I taught it in how important color can be. It can totally change the entire mood of a page/ card.  So have fun playing with different colors. 

Get too hot this week.....come create in our is cool and you have room to sprawl out.

Supplies: MS punches, Spellbinder die, morrocan embossing folder, CS.
