paper so I grabbed a PaperCrafts catalog and choose a couple cards to try. That enabled me to get 2 cards done quickly and not have 'scraps'!! The buttons were off our Buffet Table. I was able to walk up front and match single buttons to my paper. The medallion flower was created by trimming twelve 1 and 1/4 inch squares and folding into cones and stapling at the bottom. I used Glossy Accent to hold the buttons together and to attach to the paper clips. (it is like superglue in the scrapbooking industry!) Tim Holtz taught me that in one of the classes I took with him when I still had my store in Eleva.

I had done the card on the left for a class a couple months ago and I had enough pieces left to do one card so I choose to do the opposite so you can see the options with your embossing folders. Each card was inked directly on the embossing folder....only one was inked on one side and the other was inked on the opposite side. So you can see the difference here. I use Tim Holtz distressed ink pads since they wash off easy with water when I am done.
Supplies: MS butterfly punch, Distress Sage ink, Embossing folder, Creative Impressions ribbon, CS.

her white belly and paws. I used the Copic Multiliner pen to make my own spot on the belly. On the cheeks I lightly touched the point of the blender pen a few times to leave tiny white spots for the whisker area. (love the fun things you can do with the Copic markers) And then I needed a little accent to finish the card so I was looking for a tiny black flower but then as walked past the buffet table I decided the wooden piece would be perfect.
Supplies: Judith stamp, Copic markers and Multiliner, MS twig punch, border punch, Creative Impressions swirl ribbon, CS.

road trip to go speak to stores about a bus trip. We have 2 that have agreed for a spring bus trip =) And I think they both are perfect for what I know our customers are looking for. Both have stamps.
The patterned paper is glitter so it adds that little extra glitz to this card. The bug stamp was colored with Copics and then Stickles was added to the wings. The flowers were done with a Dienamics flower set. And the new Edgeabilities was used along the side. Speaking of Dies.....have you stopped in the store to check out the 3 new Spellbinders sets that only Crafter Home stores can offer to you thru January?

Diablo, the Siamese, has warmed up to her and they chase each other throughout the house. But Shadow, the fat cat, has not. (And HE is the one who needs to be running around) He still glares at me each time Lucy is in his vicinity. Its comical. And little Lucy will try to play with him but he isn't having nothing to do with that....yet.

Todays project featured Tim Holtz products. I choose to use his dies and embossing folder to make a holiday card. (that will be here too soon too!) I spritzed the blue with Tattered Angels for the extra glitz. The closeup shows it somewhat. You'll just have to come see all the cards displayed at the store for a better
look =) I used a dark blue Copic marker to color a clear gem to match the card.
