Beautiful Gift Idea!!

Check out this absolutely beautifully done picture. Connie Tumm (up line of an up line) created this and gave it to Julie Coyle. Julie allowed me the privilege of displaying it at our Camp on Friday. Everyone absolutely LOVED it and wanted to make or buy one of their own. So, I do believe this (or one very similar)WILL be a project for next years camp. She did an awesome job. Thanks to Julie for sharing. Thanks for visiting. Angela

Desktop Calendar

Check out this really neat desk top calendar. This is just one of the awesome projects we will be making at the Christmas Stamp Camp this year. I cannot take all the credit for this neat design, my upline Julie Coyle came up with it, but it is so cool I just had to case it from her. You can have one too. Call me today and sign up for the camp. Hurry, it is only two weeks away! Thanks for visiting. Angela

Cookie Sheet Calendar

Check out this beautiful cookie sheet calendar I made at one of my fellow demonstrator's classes. I thought this was such a great idea and have decided these will be next years Christmas gifts. It turned out so pretty, using the Bella Rose DSP! I would be more than happy to help you make one. Just send me an email or give me a call. You too can make one for the low price of $25.

Snow Swirled

I made this card for the Mukwonago Craft Club this friday. I used two techniques that will be new to these girls. One is dry embossing with out a template and the other is stippling.
Stamp Set: Snow Swirled
Cardstock: Brocade Blue (standard 51/2" x 4 1/4" )
White Vellum (51/2" x 41/2" scored @ 41/4")
Ink: White Stazon, Black Stazon, Brocade Blue Classic
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, 1/8 in hole punch, Stipple Brush, Stylus, Black sponge mat from tool kit, Glue Dots
Technique: Scallop edge of vellum and punch holes. Stamp snow flakes onto vellum with white Stazon and allow to dry. Turn vellum over and place on black sponge mat. Using the stylus, trace the areas you want to highlight. Go lightly at first and press harder until you receive the desired look. Then on this same side stipple on the Brocade Blue. Stamp the greeting with black Stazon. Adhere to card with glue dots. I put them behing the scored area that folds over the top of the card and one in each of the bottom corners. As an after thought I added some silver elastic cord. It looks pretty either way.

My Latest Creation

I recently painted my kitchen and reaaranged the furniture, which then opened up a large wall that needed decorating. So, I decided to stamp some artwork and hang it. I am also considering adding some decor elements and stamping one more piece to complete the design. So, stay tuned for the next addition.
