I just received my STAMPIN Up Watercolor Pencils, and thought I would try them on some water color paper....I love my Prisma Pencils, so when I received the watercolor pencils, I used the Gamsol with them as well....it brings your pencils to life...they look lovely using just water, but, try the Gamsol, to make your colors even more vibrant!...Using our Early Expresso, Teal, and Whisper White CS, made this a beautiful color combination.....I hope you give this technique a try....take care!

I must tell you some funny things that led up to this card...lol....this morning was garbage day, so I got up earlier to clean out our fridge....wow, it had it's own family growing in there...lol...we had a Pizza box, left overs, grapes, yukky, but, the best was the huge THREE BEAN SALAD.....I just emptied the whole thing in the garbage bag, so I could walk our huge long lane way, in the wind and snow.....to bring 2 big bags full of many things I found here and there....well, I was sliding the bags on the ice.....yes, you guessed it...I had a trail of three bean salad....gravy,,,,egg shells....old tangerines....things I didn't want to guess what they were....all behind me ...because the ice, like a razor, cut my yuk yuks....and when I finally noticed, and picked up the bags...yes, it happened...an explosion of sideways, backways, every which way of assorted ...blowing in the wind...household LEFTOVERS.....YUMMY....I ran to get a shovel, plastic new bags,....and a hat to go over my head, so the neighbors would think it was my daughter in law...lol....I was freezing...I had my hubby's hunting boots on....his work jacket...and my pink, and blue, flannel hearts Jammie bottoms blowing in the wind...lol...what a sight for early risers...I hope the birds, and wild animals have Peptones Bismol, for the gas they will experience after my bean and gravy, frozen food supply....let's hear it for three bean salad....yay!.....
This was an inspired card, using my favourite stamps, techniques, and brayer....loved making, and creating this card...the funny thing is, the top portion of my card fell on the floor, and I didn't notice it, until after the video was up...lol...I laughed when I saw the video, missing half the sun....lol...please enjoy anyway...we are all in this TOGETHER....THE NEXT VIDEO HAS THE PROPER CARD FINISHED TO MY SATISFACTION......YAY...LAUGHING IS GREAT MEDICINE....WE FIRST HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO LAUGH AT OURSELVES....GOD BLESS

This Mini was started a few months back, where I showed every page being designed. I left it by the wayside, until today....I wanted to complete it, as I don't like unfinished projects laying around....these colors are so vibrant, you can't help but love it...each page is packed with different techniques....themes...colors....embellishments...and now we are heading to the finishing line....yay..the next part will show the binding that holds the pop tabs on...this is a heavy duty system for binding your Mini....I will have it out on video tomorrow for you...I have a sinus migraine, which I felt coming on since my brown eyes gave way to daylight this morning....I made shrimp and meatball spaghetti, with 3cheeses for dinner...I pray it stays down....yuk, I'm sorry...I just feel queasy....I will see you tomorrow, as we share the completion of this amazing Mini....God Bless

This is the finished product.....The Bevelled Card.....It had some embellishments that took a little more time to create, so there wasn't enough of that thing called TIME...to get it to the place I felt was FINISHED...I am off to the drawing board to sketch out some more of these thoughts, that are floating around in my head...haha Enjoy my friends, until the next post....have a Blessed Evening
I first want to thank the new friends that joined my blog.....THANK VERY MUCH....and for the ones that are already here....YAY, I REALLY AM THANKFUL FOR EACH ONE....
This is a bevelled card that just stands out from other cards that are flat in nature. lol This is another Mother's Day Card, because when you see it, you will understand that it couldn't be anything else...smiles....I had a day of card making, and I love to do that. I get up early, get all the housework finished, laundry in, dishwasher going, dusting things with the once over..haha and off to my craft room I go...yes, humming a song, because I know that I am in Craft Heaven the minute I enter the room......I hope that you enjoy this card, as much as I enjoyed making it for you. Have a Blessed Evening
I love to work with Acetate....it is one of the most elegant ways of creating a spectacular looking card without a huge fuss. I added some more bling to the card, which I posted in the next video. I just didn't have time to finish it.....so, when the camera was off I did just that, and showed it in my following one. I think it turned out very nice ....so, I made it a Mother's Day Card. It just looked like one from the minute I started making it....smiles...enjoy
This is a little card that I decided to make for my granddaughter to give her a Dairy Queen Card to go and get a BIG ice-cream, or whatever she likes. She is a big help to me, so I am a firm believer of giving back kindness, when they least expect it. haha I made four card video's today for you to enjoy. I will post them for you to watch, when you have some free time. Get the popcorn out, and please enjoy!

With a touch of Vintage, this beautiful Wedding Card takes no time at all, yet looks like you spent hours making it! This uses our SU Pretty in Pink CS, Grey CS, Silver Glimmer Paper and our two tone Pink and Grey New Ribbons. Take the Lattice Embossing folder on the grey CS, add our flat back pearls to the embossed Oval Folder, and a hanger embossed in clear embossing powder, and you have a stamped Wedding Dress on Vellum in black and white overtop, gives you this beautiful Wedding Card. I hope I got all of it in those two sentences.....hahaha You will love the finished look of this Card. It is a 5x5 folded Pretty in Pink card base.
Thanks so much for viewing this card today. Have a wonderful week, and we will see you on the next video.

I thought I'd share it step by step...lol
I called this card " MIDNIGHT DELIGHT ", because the brayer technique using all the different ink colors, made me think of this title!
I was asked to show this card I made when I first was introduced to stamping! It is a " Lovely as a Tree " stamp set, and mixed hues of coloe, make this one of the most gratifying cards to make....It doesn't take much time to create, what I think is a LOVELY card to give to that special someone.....please enjoy the video, and thanks once again for joining.....
Thought I would share my swap page with you today...I have 4 videos in all, to take you from start to finish...lol...I thought I'd save you the viewing time, and skip right on over to the completed project...I have 6 in all to send out...I hope you like it...Enjoy!

Swap Cards are ready to mail out....I had a few ideas to add to it, so I thought that I would share them with you.
Hi there friends,
We are enjoying a full blown snow day today, with winds up to 70 miles an hour for tonight. This is a great day to spend in the Craft Room and do what I love best.....Create Cards. haha I am going to do a Vintage Video after dinner, that will be the start of a 6 page Mini Swap I have entered into. I can say that Swaps and me have a love hate relationship. lol I mean, I love the idea of 10 other people getting my cards, but it is the deadline that I have a problem with. hahaha I love working a little here, and a little there, and then before long my projects last forever....but that's ok, because it is for my own pleasure. haha So, because I am a work under pressure type person, I set things off to the side, and before long, I am doing exactly this....making sure that all the projects that have to go in the mail are done asap...and that means I stay up late, get up early, and work,work,work...because I didn't do it immediately, and get it out of the way! haha I am finished this one swap, lol haha my first swap, so why am I complaining?hahaha because I worked on each one especially for that person, so it got my full attention....I love to give each card I make, whether it is for the Florist Shop, for a friend, for gifts, for the Blessing Box, for Church, for whatever the event....I love to spend every minute, on each card, making it as though I was the one that is receiving it. If that sounds crazy, I must be, because I just love the pressure of doing things at the last trump, and getting satisfaction from the fact that I did it. hahahaha I am having my son and his family over for dinner at 7:00 tonight, in an hour..haha so, I made homemade sausages, my son's favorite salad, and fruit cups, filled with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, grapes, and kiwi,,,oh yes, mango's...whip cream and that is going to be dinner. I just placed it all in the fridge, so all I have to do it brown the sausage, place on fresh bakery buns, and it is ready to go..... I wanted to make sure it was in the process, because cooking pressure is not on my list of love to do things. lol I love having my family over for dinner. They live right next door, and it is like they have traveled from afar.....they think it it hysterical, that I get so excited to have them over, when I see them every day...for lunch, or gabs, or teenage fun nights,,,we had one last night....that is for another days story line. hahaha I want to get this video out there, and I pray that it finds each one of you, my blogging friends, happy and healthy. It means a great deal to me that you take the time to view my videos, listen to me gab, and come back to do it all over again tomorrow, or the next time I blog.....lol I will see you at the Vintage Video 6x6 Tutorial later this evening. I will actually post it in the morning. I have to see when the family decides to walk home. hahaha Have a great weekend everyone. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

I had so much fun with this card. I mean, let's go back in time, when we loved our dress up dolls, matching dress forms, just bend your dresses on your doll, and a day could slide by in sheer enjoyment....I simply loved every minute of putting this together, to make whoever receives your card, will have fun with it as well as viewing your beautiful dress cut outs. It is like sewing dresses together, without the fuss of pins and patterns....lol....I pray I was able to inspire you to make this for a loved one to enjoy our fabulous wonder years of simple FUN,
