This was one of my shoe box cards. First I spritzed watercolor paper with water and then used the new oxide inks to create a background. then used the die to cut out . I used the left overs to stamp the greeting and cut that out with the "clean up" die from the StampinUp Floral thinlets. I stamped the butterfly and then used dobbers to color the butterfly. Wink of Stella was put on the butterfly. Looks better in real time. For some reason the Stella does not photograph well.

Another swallowtail card. What a great source the internet is for card ideas. I love the pop up when you open the card. I hope you can tell how it works from the pictures. I think I would leave the 3rd section off the next one I make because it sorta gets in the way of the butterfly when you open the card. Hope that makes sense.

I bought this tulle @ Christmas for the mantle and didn't use it. Then I saw a video using tulle on Jennifer McGuire's site. If you follow my blog you will see that I have used it quite a lot. This was my shoe box card last month. I used it to cover the front of the card & put the cupcake on top. I plan to use it on my Christmas cards.

Another waterfall card. This is a Magenta stamp that I have had ever since I started stamping. I finished my July birthday cards yesterday. I absolutely love the oxide inks and now they have 12 more new colors that I think are better than the first ones. A couple I probably would not use much but it cheaper to buy the whole lot. What to do??

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I tried to post a red white & blue card but couldn't get it to post & I don't have one on hand. Here is a sympathy card I sent to our good friend Ron. Margie was a very talented artist and a very good friend of mine. RIP Margie. I'm going to keep their bird while he visits his sister in Arizona. I'm Leary but determined to do my best. I'll keep you posted.

WOW seems like a long time since I posted & it was just Friday. Maybe because I made several cards and experimented with some new ideas. This is another Tulle card. I like shaker cards but find they are a pain. I made a birthday card for our 3 yr. old great grand & think I finally figured out the best way to do it. Shoe box is Sat. & I have my three cards done. Hope I can remember how I did them when the time comes. Ha!
