About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

What's NEW !!!!!!!

Hope you've had fun "hopping" so far????

If you came here from MARY's blog then you are almost finished.....
If you started here then you there are a few great ones that you may miss out on.....
check the list below to make sure you stay on the right track.

7. Mary
8. Crystal you're here!!!!!!

Hopefully this blog hop will inspire you to try something new (technique, new stamp set, etc.)  that you will try for yourself.
 I tried a few techniques that I haven't done before.  It was hard to find something that I haven't tried already........but I found a couple. 

The first one is the stamping on ribbon; actually I used white seam binding.  I used Staz-on black. The next "new" thing was dry embossing with ink..... (see the white layer).  I  rubbed a light coral ink pad across the embossing folder on one side and placed my paper inside and ran it through my texture boutique. Leaving a slight color against the white.  I used several other tech-y's on this one also..... I distressed the edges with scissors on the DSP,  I stamped on it also only on the bottom,  I stamped the daisy and colored the center with a q-tip I rubbed on the lt coral ink pad. I punched the daisy (Studio G clear stamp) and the DSP with circle punches.  The black leaves are from a MS punch.

Hope you've enjoyed this hop and you can't wait to come back later and see what I love to do everyday!!!

Until later, the next "New things"........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!!!

What a delightful card! I need to try that ribbon stamping - love how yours turned out! I want to try my hand at making some buttons out of polymer clay and then stamping and inking for my own embellishments.

New follower! This is a great card! Love the way the embossing folder turned out - I've never tried that but will definitely have to now... I also love how you separated the paper and stamped on the ribbon. Really adds to it!

I have tried the stamping on seam binding and it keep running. I bought some Staz-on but it still does it. You have given me a push to try again. Thanks and thanks for your time and talent.
