 This weeks challenge at Shopping our Stash ,the project must contain something embossed- using either heat or dry methods or both. So I made this card. I started with black cardstock and stamped it with versamarker, then used my white Stampinup embossing powder. after embossing with the heat gun I used my pastel markers and colored in the flowers.  I used tim holtz ink to edge the white paper.  for the backing I used Tim Holts magic paper and ran it through my big shot using fantasy flowers embossing folder. I used  a sanding block to bring out the back color on the tim holtz paper,  I then embossed the happy bday salutation on black paper. so I have used dry embosssing and embossing with versamarker, embossing powder and a heat gun. There is a tutorial for this on Splitcoaststampers.

This week's challenge at shopping our stash  is a  countdown- a 3, 2, 1 challenge! Use three of something, two of something and one of something!  so for this week I am entering this card.
I have one large black diamond, two stamped images and three diamonds so I think it meets the requirements. I love this stamp, she looks like me and a lot of my friends.........thanks for looking.

I just learned to do this telescoping card and I quite like them. They are fun to do and quite easy. the tutorial is on Splitcoast stampers this week.  You need two stamped images and a set of nestabilities.  The challenge this week at opus-gluei is to use the color red and one other color, so I am entering this card in their challenge.  thanks for looking.

The challenge for Shopping our Stash this week is to use a technique you have always wanted to try or one that you have forgotten about, well I guess I sort of qualify. I saw a technique on splitcoast stampers that I had to try, I can't say I've always wanted to try it, but I have since yesterday when I saw that tutorial.  It's called a telescoping image and here is my version.  To do this you have to stamp two pictures , then use different size nestabilities to make the dimensional look.  check out the challenge at Shopping our Stash.    and the tutorial at splitcoast stampers. Thanks for looking.

This weeks challenge at Shopping our Stash  was to add an extra fold or pleat. I just saw this card in our local scrapbook store and knew I had to make it, it is a cascading card and has several folds. It was quite a coincidence that folds were this weeks challenge. the red one is for Addie's bday tomorrow and the thank you card is for my sister who I will be staying with in Aug for a week. This is a fun card to make. thanks for looking

this week's challenge at Shopping our Stash is Triple threat....I used a doily, pearls, flowers and also did a cool technique with embossing paste and glitter on the cameo.  There is also a really neat hat pin included by the doily...kind of hard to see in the picture but it also has pearls on it....
