It has been so long since I posted anything that I'm not sure I remember how to do it!  I've been making tons of cards and donating them to the local infusion center for patients, but I haven't taken any pictures of them....  The bad part is that some of the cards have turned out great but I don't remember what they looked like.  SO, I am going to try to be better about photographing them and uploading them as well as some challenge cards. 

This week there are some challenges on the Bugaboo Stamps blog - I love Stella!  Here goes.....let's see if I can remember how to add a photo!

It worked!  This is a wine bottle tag I made for the White Elephant challenge.  I used part of the Stella Christmas Boy List and the sentiment that goes with it.  I don't remember the source of this designer paper, but I love the colors!  Stella's hat has some dazzling diamonds glitter on it, but it doesn't show up very well.

Drapery Fold OH MY GOODNESS!

Well, recently when I was lost in Pinterest-land, I discovered a tutorial for the Drapery Fold.  Oh my goodness - what a great way to use up ugly designer paper that you would never use on any respectable card!  I ended up making three cards with this fold:

Watercoloring and Best Thoughts

The Best Thoughts stamp set is new to me and I am loving getting back to watercoloring with reinkers and an aquapainter.  I'm looking forward to watercoloring this in all sorts of colors!  Oh, and trying to use up some old designer paper.

I used the sentiment from the Best Thoughts stamp set for this card as well.  This image is a digital image that I colored using prismacolor pencils, but don't recall the company.  I removed it from a card that got all tattered in my craft room and created a new card with it.

This last card is using the Bloom With Hope stamp set that my friend forgot at my house!  I'm having a great time with my Spectrum Noir markers - and am getting better at blending each time I use them.  The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set.

Oh - and I used more old designer paper!

My New Favorite Stamp Set!

I have wanted this stamp set for a very long time, and finally ordered it! It is so versatile! The possibilities with this set are endless!

Stampin' UP! Blushing Bride makes a great spring card and I discovered this washi tape on my stamping table and was SO surprised that it matched so perfectly. 

I think my new favorite color just might be Lost Lagoon!  It also makes a great card with this stamp set and I really like the Lost Lagoon washi tape! 

The last card is also made with Blushing Bride, but I added just a touch of sunshine in the upper left corner.  These two cards using Blushing Bride look exactly like spring in Washington State!

Wow, this is one neglected blog! I took a break from blogging, but not from making cards. I'm hoping to get back in the habit of posting the cards that I make - and getting back into the groove of Stampin'Up! and being a demo. My new favorite stamp set is Sheltering Tree! I need to take some pictures and I'll upload them later.

EASY Noel Card

Wow - it's been so long since I've uploaded anything I wasn't sure I even remembered how to do it! PSX used to be one of my favorite stamp companies, but they are no longer in business. I've had this stamp for many years, but it wasn't until recently I've been happy with my coloring of it. I have recently gotten all of the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers and am having SOOOOOO much fun playing with them. I still need lots of practice, but they are pretty easy to blend. I made this card for a gift exchange today. Inside is a decorated coin envelope with a Starbucks gift card inside. I don't often use the mustardy-barf-like color on anything, but I love how these colors look together!

Oh my - I haven't posted since 2011? Wow.....I guess I'd better get busy. It's not that I haven't made anything, I just haven't thought about uploading here. I'm starting to create things for fall craft fairs, so I really do have some things to upload! Hoping to be better about the whole blogging thing!
