Julie and I colored these flowers using Noir Spectrum markers. They are really nice markers. The flower stamp is a single StampinUp stamp.

I made this card for my other shoe box. It shows up better in this picture than the one I posted yesterday. Wish I had gotten it centered better. Next try will be a cupcake. I really do like this design.

I did this card for shoe box, only in a different color. when you open it the circle moves and looks like it is floating. Saw it on U-Tube. Don't know why it does not sho up well. Guess it is the angle or the photographer! Any way if it were lying flat the background is orange. I'll be using this a technique a lot. Love the way it looks.

I made this anniversary for my friend Sharon. Unfortunately, it did not arrive on time. Our PO sucks! Mailed it on Sat. and it arrived on Friday. So sad. A letter was mailed to the Aux. members on Monday afternoon in Kerrville and no one received theirs until Thurs. Not even the people who live in Kerrville. That's a sorry thing! I really like this washi tape.

Here's an anniversary card for a friend. This is a very nice saying. I bought it @ a stamp convention years ago. Remember when they had bins & bins of unmounted stamps in a big pile and had mirrors so you could read the sayings. Very time consuming but worth the effort!

Another birthday card. I used Wink of Stella on the flowers even though it does not show in the picture. I need to attack my studio before a new cleaning lady comes. Surely you know that if it is bugging me it's a total mess!

This is a new die that I was playing around with. It releases easily which is nice. I like these colors together.

A die, a punched border, a little stamping and another easy card is done. OOPS, should have said a embossing folder, guess my sleepy brain has not had enough caffine!

Crumb Cake & Rose Red, a little grunge & a flower stamp and another birthday card is born. Pretty easy.

I haven't used this die in a while. Tangerine Tango I think. Get my StampinUp order late today so I will be playing with my new stuff this weekend & finishing up my boot birdhouse. I am slowly getting my crafting projects done. Kinda lost my momentum for awhile.

Here's another sympathy card. Love this sentiment. It is a clear stamp & I don't know who makes it.

Here's a sympathy card I made. They are hard for me to do so I try to have a couple on hand so I don't have to scramble when I need one.

Julie made this pretty card for our shoe box. Love the colors. I think I need to get this stamp set out and use it more.

This is a nice idea that Denise came up with for one of our shoe boxes. I like the cut out with the patterned paper behind it.

I'm posting my latest project. I couldn't get the decorations right so I ask my friend Sharon to help and this was the results. Just the look I wanted!

This is a new technique to me anyway. You take your die and trace around the outside edge with a gel pen, then cut out the die, I added vellum behind it and then used another die and glued that down. I saw this on u-tube. I like the look. Had to add the white strip because I dropped the card on an ink pad. I think it distracts and will not use it but I did want to show you the technique. We did this card for shoe box but used navy as the background and peach on top. (sorry, not picture of that). I tried it with navy and a white base but the lighter colors work best.

I made this card for shoebox last month. The black & white stripped is washi tape.

I made this card as one of my swap exchanges. Love this Paper Smooches die!I first had this on a black card base. Couldn't figure out why I did not like it. Changed to a white base and made a big difference.

This is an anniversary card I made for Brittany & Bobby. The colors were used on the wedding invitations. Still remember how hard the last 25 out of 250 invitations were to make but worth it when they said how grateful they were and how much everyone liked them. Maybe I should have stamped one more swirl in reverse to fill in the space more. Too late!

Julie made this card for our shoe box group. Nice colors again. The bows are a stampinUp punch.

This was Pam's shoe box card. The note cards were purchased and we decorated them. I can't remember the company but I can find out where she got them. Paper something but I can't get it through my sleep fogged, non caffeinated brain @ the moment.

This card was done by Sharon. Now this stamp set is a must have. Love the colors she used on this one, very pleasing.

I have incredibility talented friends. I am going to show you some cards we made in our shoe box exchanges. First one is one that Denise made. Love the colors, but she always puts together great color combinations. I beelieve this is Melon Mambo, Navy and Crumb Cake.
