Birthday Card

Can you tell that I like my Spellbinders Rose Creations!  I made this Birthday card for a co-worker and used colors to match the ribbon.  The flower is made out of the same paper that is on the bottom of the card.  It looks different in the picture.  I used the new DCWV Smooth Stack paper for everything except the leaves.

Graduation Cards

My niece graduated from Stephen F. Austin University this year.  I had fun making her card with the university colors and adding the seal from her envelope on the graduation cap!

I also had fun making this card for the daughter of my bff.  It isn't the school colors, but it is her favorite colors.  I like the way both of these turned out!

Wedding Card

Today was a wedding reception for a friend's daughter.  I have known her since she was about 3 years old. I wanted to make a special card for her in all white.  I started over four or five times with different ideas!  It finally came together and I love it!  Whew!

Supplies used:

Grand Nestabilities Grand Circles
Spellbinders Rose Creations
Memory Box Macarena Corner
DCWV paper
Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 (for the sentiment)

New Card!

So much for keeping up with my blog!  It has been almost a year since I posted.  I made a card for a friend's birthday.  Of course I did not take a picture of it.  But I made another Bday card with pieces that I did not use and really like it.  I used 5 different Spellbinders to create it!

Spellbinders Grand Calibur

My newest purchase is a Spellbinders Grand Calibur!  I had a hard time making an impression with the Impressabilities until I got this machine!   I use Co'ordinations Chocolate Box paper, ran it through my Grand Calibur with the Flourishes Impressabilities, sanded it and came up the background paper!  I love it!  I also used my new Fancy Tags Two and Stampin' Up Vintage Flowers adornments for the look!

It Is Time for some .....And More!

These are Easter eggs that I learned how to make from my dad who was born in 1917.  People are amazed when I tell them how they are made!  So let me amaze you!  Take white raw eggs, wrap them is onion skins from yellow onions (they are brown), wrap that in fabric and tie securely.  Boil them as you would any other egg.  Peel the fabric and onion skins off and see what happened.  The fun part is you never know what kind of design you will get from the skins and pieces of skins!
