Remember .....

this card ?
Seems I overloaded the embellishments which caused it to keep falling over. something about balance
Here's what I did to "balance " it

Isn't that just the cherry on top ? Enjoy

A side step back to school card

I thought of my friend Nancy, who belongs to a blog group that I belong to, when I made this . the paper is Astrobrights.
her platinum hair is done up in copics. i was actually trying to practice how to do black hair when I came up with this
LMBO. opposite end of the spectrum.  the rest of her is also copics. the thing behind the word Back is a clock if you can't tell. freehand, not a stamp or digi. the image is courtesy of SSD

One more Back to School Card Darlene Domel style

Darlene is the Artistic Director for Stampland Chicago . their web site is under construction currently . Now hers are much better but this is just an imitation with a few slight changes. She normally uses a white card base. mine is a blue berry sort of color (ie purple and blue). We both used Eclipse tape for the precise lines between colors. She exclusively uses Marvy Matchables colored inks. Me , I used a Hampton Arts silver ink pad, an Archivers Antique robins egg blue ink, SU concorde crush,SU real red, and SU Winter White (bottom left corner). the lettering is SU lovely lilac, using some clear alphabet stamps from my stash(a recent gift. thanks Lesia). the images were fussy cut from a DCWV page

Anything but a Card

I had this great piece of glitter paper that I wanted to use . only the pattern on the paper was too large for a standard
card. so I decided to go full size . Didnt make it any easier. not that you want all the details . So without further
adieu , here she is Backpack Brandy from SSD. I'll be using her in a HUGE sidestep card for the back to school challenge @Mema's Crafts. Check back to see the finished card later this week

On July 31st , I posted a card with a watermark of OOPS, OOPS

It was off. the music was centered on its purple mat . BUT the combo when attached to the card base was NOT centered.
Just couldn't have that . I had already posted it before I realized the problem so I just popped the OOPS on top. It had an added bonus of making the card hazy so it was harder to see the flaw . I think some people were bothered by the blurry haze and did'nt see the OOPS. Either way, It has been fixed . Sorry for the confusion. Here's her replacement with a few
added details
I am entering her in the SSD Monthly Progressive Challenge #3

As promised another CASE'd card

Again Lesia of Mema's Crafts and I made these wonderful cards. We also had lots of fun while making these together. hopefully she will post hers .
The EF for this was from Marriane Designs. Sorry, dont know the name . Again i dont know the name of the original artist. this is my interpretation of said card

I thought these were terrific before my interpretation. Enjoy and Have a Great Day

I have 2 cards to post today each will get its own post

Friday I met with Lesia of Mema's Crafts and we made some Awesome cards. It was CASE'd . only I dont know who the original creator was . I'll have to ask Lesia so I can provide the link so you can see the original . anyway here's my interpretation of said CASE'd card
And the Inside
In case you cant tell, the inside left panel is embossed. The EF is Dainty Dots. Again I'll have to ask Lesia
which one it was
