You should have arrived here from Judy’s blog.  She is so creative. I just love her creations. 

I am showcasing 3 different techniques.  I love this CD SO much I couldn't stop creating...
Card 1 & 2 - Alcohol Stencil Technique
Stamp:  Saturated Canary
I colored this adorable Saturated Canary Stamp with copics.  I added some embellishments I cut out with my Silhouette.  I just love that is soooo true.  This card is going to a co-worker of my mom's who is going through chemotherapy.

Leaf and sentiment cut from my Silhouette.

 Card 3 - Distressed Removal
Stamp:  Cloud9
I love this cool retro stencil ...Tip:  I found that using Matte Coated cardstock works best.
Your next stop is Ann’s blog.  You know she has something special...she always does.

Colored Stone Silk

Happy Sunday everyone!
Today's project is a card I made for my girlfriends birthday. 
The sentiment went perfectly with this Saturated Canary image. 
I colored the image with copics.  I am still practicing
my skin, hair and clothes with my Kit & Clowder copic
classroom classes.  I have learned so much.
I used the Technique Junkies Newsletter technique of the week
Colored Stone Silk.
I hope you all have a wicked crafty day!
Thanks for stopping by...

Happy Birthday - Make it Magical

I just love this stamp from Saturated Canary.  I did her up for this month's September Challenge over at Kit and Clowder classroom.

I colored her with copics (copied Alyce's magical card for the magic dust).

I watercolored the background and cut her out using the Technique Junkies Out of the Nestie Box technique with my spellbinders.  The background is done with an Impression Obsession stamp and distress inks.

I printed off sentiment and added some more distress inks.  I am giving this to my girlfriend for her 40th birthday.

I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today...have a crafty day!

Sympathy Card

I am introducing this week's technique of the week for the Technique Junkies newsletter called "Background Stained Glass".

I thought it would be fitting to use this beautiful background to showcase a sentiment from Stampin Up! for a sympathy card.

The background stamp is also from Stampin Up! colored with Stampin markers.

I hope you have a crafty day and thanks so much for stopping by!
