got MONO?

Going to share with you the cards we made at the class on Sunday past.  It was a bit of a messy day....but think everyone enjoyed.

The first share is the Monochromatic card.

It really is amazing how just using one colour can look so cool.

Not sure if you can see but we also used some white glitter to highlight the edge of the tags.....

Music Deco pages.....

WELL the theme for this set of deco pages is was worded..."Music...inspired by something you love".

I love to be able to sing (and yes. dance) to a song.  May not be a pretty sight....but life is too short not to enjoy a few moments once in awhile LOL.

so my first page...taken from Cindy Lauper song....stamps used for both pages is from Art Impressions.
 Like - who doesn't sing and dance to that !!!  I saw her in concert once ...she is fab !

the next one is based on an oldie....think all the oldies we can sing too.  At least we can understand the words....heheheheee
 I think this one is a self portrait.   

Sure hope she like my interpretation of Music as as the other pages sent to her were very different.

Throwback Thursday

Hello my crafty friends.   Well I have been a bit under the weather lately - and my newer projects not quite ready to post so thought I would share a couple of my 'old work' that I liked.  

 This one I had embossed the face and coloured in the eye.  Cut it out and mounted on ripped paper.  Stamped the bees in Black and coloured only a few.  Then did shrinky dinks for more bees...I luv weird stuff LOL.
 This was a fun one !  the fairy trying to get out of the bird cage.  Did this one for my mom quite a few years ago....
And finally - this was an image challenge card. (someone mails you the image and you need to make something with it)  I really like this one - using the step card.

Think this throwback thursday might become a regular thing here...what do you think????

Her 90th

My daughter wanted a special card for her grandmothers 90th
birthday.   Something large that she could see as the old girls sight is almost gone.

Went with the vintage look 6 x 6 card.  Didn't bother with any saying on the front as she probably could not see it.  Large coloured flowers glued on.  

 This is very similar to the card I taught back in March....but why reinvent the wheel if one doesn't have to. 

Distressed the edges a bit...added some flourishes .... and Of course - used my Flapper girl stamp from Stampsmith.

OOPS ....I did it again.

They should make a song like that hahhaaa

Anyway - just a quick card as I needed a couple to pop out.
So using my herringbone technique again put this card together.

 The stamp is from River City Rubber.

Great way to use up some scraps !!!!

Flowers is the theme

Showing the next set of Deco pages ( 5 x 5 art work) for one of my buddies over at the KCUK group.  Her theme was Flowers.

Here is what I came up with.

 Using my Crafty Individuals stamp with the Lilys.  Rubbed my Marvey/Tombow Markers on the stamp - then pressed onto my glossy paper.  did some layering.....added some vintage pink velvet ribbon.
The second page - using the same image - cut into inches.  Covering both with some daisys punched out...and pearl stickles in the middle of those.

Of course not complete without a picture of Tiger Lily taken when I was at my daughters in Moose Jaw  Sask. 

Hope she likes them .......
