Everything is Coming Up Roses!!!

Recently I learned a new technique and couldn't wait to share it with my stampers, and with their overwelming response of excitement I'm sharing the how to's at this month's Stamp Camp Thursday evening.

The technique is called Brayered Roses and uses the Manhantan Flower embossing folder to create an unusual effect of adding color that is truely beautiful.

We'll also be making another card using the "Seasons of Friendship" stamp set, and another 3D card with creative folding techniques to make an dimensional flower to add to the front of your cards that has been requested by my stampers once again.

Color Challenge

I'm just back from the Premier Designs High Fashion Jewelry Rally in Fort Worth Texas and had a total blast!!! It was like a vacation for me away from the guys, and was much needed girlie girl time!!!! The new Jewelry realases from the Fall Winter Collection are the best ever and Premier has really out done themselves this time. Can you say, "I WANT IT ALL!" ?

Anyway it's back to stamping fun, and thought since everyone enjoyed the previous challenges here is another color challenge for you, by Kwernerdesigns and hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
Many Blessings!

Let's Try A Sketch!!!


I've been talking abut posting color combinations and sketches to help inpsire you. and sometimes were all just in need of a fresh layout for our cards and sketches can do just that very thing. Sometimes sketches can provide a new way of thinking and get us out of an over used rut sometimes, and be a form that we may never have thought of. So today I'd like to share a sketch with you and just maybe it may light a spark for you too!!!
