Mustache tag

Today I'm sharing a tag I made for a Jouney Coach Challenge my friend Rose gave to us. The challenge was to include a mustache in the project. I used the Furry Mustache ATS. Its a single stamp but I actually cut mine to make 5 separate stamps. I did straight cuts so I can line them back up on a block like the were meant to be or choose one to stamp by itself. This makes it more versatile. I hope you enjoy.

Shaker card

Here is a card I made for 2 occasions. My next class is all trick cards. This one is a shaker card. The other challenge was to use a background stamp. I used linked dots on each if the 3 tags. I hope you like it. Enjoy

Today I have a diamond flip it card for you. The diamond shape in the center of the card flips as you open the card. I have posted pictures of the card both the closed with a cute image colored in pink. Then as you pull the two sides the center flips and reveals the message inside in the card. This is the second card we will be making at the September class at This n That. I hope you like it. 

Spinner card

Here is a spinner card I made for my class next month. The gear in the middle spins back and forth on the card. This is one of the cards I will be teaching at This n That in Chino Hills in September. Spinner cards are fun to give and easy to make. Enjoy

Best Wishes

Today I am showing you another card we will be making on August 20 at This and That in Chino Hills.  I like the little extras I added to this card.  I used my border punches and spellbinder dies along with my Best Wishes stamp set for this pretty flower. A little bling and a few flowers and ribbon finish is off nicely I think.

Here is another masculine card we will be making in my next class at This N That in Chino Hills.  I used the Greet and Shout and Journey Gears stamp sets along with my spellbinder die for the label.  If your interested in making this card and a few others on August 20th let me know and I will get you signed up for the class.  We always have a fun time and relax after a hard day at work. Hope to see you there.

Butterfly Prints

Butterflies always make me smile.  I just love their individual beauty and their freedom to just flutter around and enjoy the sites.  Butterfly prints is a nice 2 step stamp that lets you add a solid color butterfly with a nice color design on top.  For this one I used Candy Apple Red and Black Licorice.  I added my journey glaze and sparkle dust to the top and popped them up on the card like they are ready to fly off the card.  I used the sentiment Smile so I can send this card to a friend that needs a pick me up or just want to make them smile.

Birthday Bliss

Today I have another masculine card for the cyclist in your life.  My dad has always been into bikes so I thought of him when I made this card.  I used a pattern paper that had enough design that I didn't want to take away from so I added a simple label in the center using the Birthday Bliss Set and there you go.

Lacey Trim

Today I have a card to share using a background stamp to alter the look of another stamp.  So many times we just use background stamps to add a little depth or texture to our backgrounds of our cards.  They can also be used to add texture to a simple dress stamp.  Here I used the Lacey Trim background stamp to add texture and a pattern to the bottom half of the dress stamp.  I think it totally changes the look of the dress and kicks it up a notch.  What do you think?

Hugs and Kisses

I really like the classic Black and White cards.  I think they look very elegant and classy and can still be very simple.  Here is a card I did in a class showing how to tear your paper and add a different front to your card.  I added a little bling to the ends of the sentiment to finish it off and a beautiful bow in Black.
