My Mom passed away in 1990 but whenever I see popcorn I think of her. Popcorn was her favorite snack and our nightly treat as a child. A few of my sisters love it like she did. My mother also enjoyed jigsaw puzzles. When I saw this stamp I thought it was so cute, so this is the card I made in remembrance of her. Thanks for stopping by.

I made this card using the baby-wipe technique. I used re-inkers and dropped ink randomly onto a baby wipe. Then I stamped the flowers and butterflies onto glossy cardstock and cut them out. I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder with white cardstock and put the card together onto real red cardstock. This is for a swap I am in.

Hi Everyone! These are card fronts from Mary Polcin's January meeting. These are the cards I received. I hope they inspire you! The last 3 cards were Make-n-takes that Mary had for her group. Since I live in MA she sent me 3 that she had made. I especially like the last one she made, using the set Botanical Blooms from the Sale-a-bration mini catalog. We were to make card fronts using sets from the Sale-a-bration catalog. The card front that I swapped was the one posted several posts down using Polka Dot Punches on page 9 along with the designer paper on page 8. Enjoy the show and thanks for stopping by. :) Janice
Here is a picture of things we would color in gradeschool. My card below shows that I sort of moved in that direction. Now I might use these to make some cards. See you later!
Okay! Unusual card, I know. As I colored the images I stamped and masked, things were moving along fine, but then I started with the black and kept on going. By this time it was too late, and since I spent so much time coloring and masking the flowers I just had to post it. Someone out there might like it. I couldn't just toss it into the trash. It reminded me of things I had colored in grade school so that is the direction it took me. I will try to post an image of my inspiration later.
For this card I used soft colors and kept it clean and simple. The sentiment is from Wonderful Watercolors. The stamp set is Playful Petals on page 99.

I love SU Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set. For this card I used the large cupcake and the cupcakes wheel. I colored the images with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added sparkling diamonds glitter. One can never have too much glitter! Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
