More to come!

I DO have another card to share, but it's too late tonight to post it.  Look for it tomorrow night or the next day!

Can you GUESS where this paper came from?  LOL  The colors are only SLIGHTLY different - Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss.

Goofy Tango

STILL using all that scrap paper I had from Emma's invitation.

This is Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate, and Kiwi Kiss.  And if I haven't mentioned it, you can go to and find some unique color combos!

Berry Bills

NOT that I LIKE paying bills, but Michael and I are going to move into the 21st century and start paying our bills online.  SO, I needed somewhere to keep track of it all.  I bought this Composition book from Big Lots for $1.

I used the retired Berry Bliss paper and accented it with Chocolate Chip ribbons and Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose inks.

Birthday card

I saw this idea on another blog and LOVED the idea!  This card is SO easy and can be used to use up your scraps!
I, again, used some left over paper from making Emma's invitations using the shaving cream technique.  These were made using Bashful Blue and Elegant Eggplant.  The "light" for the candles is made from the retired Maize 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and staples.

So One of a Kind

MORE cards with the shaving cream left overs :D  This one is a So Saffron base, Pretty in Pink shaving cream technique leftovers, Mellow Moss cardstock and ink, Chocolate Chip ink (for inked edges) and ribbon, and Baja Breeze ink for the "flower".  The sentiment is embossed with clear embossing powder.

Baja Thank you again :)

Now I like this one MUCH better!  Same colors as last time (ribbon is Purely Pomegranate from last year).  I also added white stickles to the flowers.  I also made others with pewter brads instead of the white....  Oh and I made my grandmother one that uses the "A True friend is you friend" sentiment.

New Colors?

I'm wondering if it's possibly time for some new colors?  Maybe a cool combo found at this link -

Baja Thank you

This is made using MORE of the extra paper I had from making Emma's invitations.  This is the Pretty in Pink shaving cream technique.  I think of all the colors I made, this was my favorite.  Anyway, the base is Baja Breeze.  The image was stamped in Riding Hood Red (and versamark) and embossed.  Then that was mounted on a piece of Pacific Point.  I then distressed the edges.  I also wrapped some white organdy ribbon around the card.

Using up scraps

Well, after I finished making Emma's b-day invites, I have all these little pieces of paper left over. Now I'm working on making cards with them! This is the first of MANY!
Colors are Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, and Tangerine Tango. The image is stamped in craft ink (Mellow Moss and Bashful Blue) and embossed with clear embossing powder. The marbled paper in the background was made with Tangerine Tango ink using the shaving cream technique I listed in my last post. Stamp set is True Friend.

Emma's birthday invites

Look!  I'm ahead of the game this year!  I even made enough that I can have more for Thank you cards later!

OK, I'm not sure WHY it rotated like this, but anyway - There are FOUR colors - Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Ballet Blue, and Tangerine Tango.  I used the shaving cream technique to create a marblized look - kinda like this.....

I kinda gave away the answer to this, but what do you think these are supposed to be?  Oh I used one of those clear CD things (that come on top of the stack of CDs) and I'm going to write the info on the back and send them in CD sleeves.  Anyone know if there is an extra charge to ship those?
