Supplies Blue Painter's Tape or similar for holding mask in place. TIPS: When using Embossing Paste, don't worry about perfection. Having varying depths and textures adds to the overall effect. Clean up tools right after using, as the paste dries quickly, and is much easier to clean off the masks and tools while wet. Clean masks and tools with tepid running water and mild liquid dish soap. A soft damp cloth can also be used, but be careful not to bend edges of detailed mask images.



August-December 2021 Mini Catalog

Yes, Christmas is right around the corner!!

Ok, this post may be Christmas on steroids but I could not help myself!  I am working on class cards and thought I would share some of them with you:


Isn't this adorable?  :) I do love cats but what I love most about this card is the feeling of warmth you get by peeking outside to the cold snow.  Stay tuned and I will break this card down so you can see how easy it does go together. (God bless the invention of Framelits!!!)


Now are you really surprised to see trees from me?!? LOL  LOVE the simplicity on this one and of course the color "Krumm Cake" is quite smashing too!


So it is hard to see in the photo but the snow makes this one elegant all by itself!  And check out the inside paper wasting here!  Next week I will break this card down as these Edgelits are not just for Christmas!


I have a few more but what fun would it be to share them will have to come and see what else I am up to at class this weekend!  If you are not registered, you still have time!  Thanks for stopping by!!

A hunter....I am not but an animal lover indeed!

Happy Sunday friends!  I was gone to a retreat this weekend where there is no phone service and internet is not reliable so we were busy crafting, talking and a little bit of laughing too.  :) 

I have never been a hunter but one of my good friends Susie Martin showed me some cute birthday invites for her youngest son's birthday. 

Myles birthday invite

ISN'T this adorable?!??  First, I love her color choices and it is hard to tell by the photo but that is velum paper with antlers printed on them!  I asked how she came up with the camo which she explained how to do, so I took to my room and here is what I came up with:


This was created with two stamp sets.  The background was created with  Gorgeous Grunge and the goose and greeting came from the set Wetlands.  The technique is so easy and allows you to create any camo background you would like!  I simply used the large splatted dots stamp with Basic Gray and Smoky Slate and then use a piece of sponge and smudged on some Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow till I thought it looked good.  I know Gorgeous Grunge was not my favorite when it first came out and now.....well, I don't think I could live without it.  What do you think? 

Thank you so much to Susie for such a great idea and can't wait for all of you to come up with new twists on this great technique.  Happy stampin!!
