Technique Rolodex

I absolutely love this Technique Rolodex. I created it to keep at my fingertips. With this item on my stamp desk, I will always have a technique or idea very close to choose from. I used all sorts of embellishments with this piece. My cuttlebug with embossing folders continued to be used throughout the project. I also heavily used my colorbox chalks to cover my rolodex cards and to enhance the embossing.

Thank You Cards

I created these Thank You cards today for several friends. The papers that I chose are from K & Company with 3-D Butterflies. The Thank You Stamp is by Hero Arts. I also used some dew drops by The Robins's Nest.

Friendship Altered Puzzle Box

I created this item for a friend. I altered a puzzle box from Michael's to use as a base. This was such a fun piece and I enjoyed making it for my dear friend.

Airbrushed Technique

I have been enjoying the use of my Airbrush tool with my Copic Markers. I am posting a few of my more recent projects using the technique. I have been working on some ATCs for a swap and a Rolodex technique project for my desk. The Airbrush tool is such a wonderful addition to my artmaking.

Journey Paperbag Book-Pages

When I created this Journey Paperbag Book, I had no idea that it would be so rewarding, so refreshing and so encouraging. Each page is emblellished with buttons, tags, Rub Ons, Metals, Velum Quotes, and the list goes on and on.

March Puzzle 2-Page Spread

I loved the colors I used in my Sunshine cards so much, I used them on these pages of my lillies. The color combo is Sweet Leaf & Buttercup-both by CTMH.

Sunshine Cards

I created these Sunshine cards for a swap. I used the April Puzzle CTMH set with coordinating CTMH inks and cardstock.

Sympathy Card

I created these sympathy cards with an SU set. I used SU colors: Pomegranate and So Saffron cardstock and inks. That Pomegranate is such a luscious color to use and So Saffon accents any color well.

Birthday Card

I recently made this for a friend. I used the March Puzzle Set by CTMH with Cranberry and Buttercup ink. I also used the coordinating CTMH cardstock. The most awesome thing about this cardstock is the white core. Sanding it exposes the white core and this adds more character to your artwork.
